Don't watch their (Ipswich) games just follow them through news.
Got into the EPL three years ago (oddly, because I started playing FIFA and LOVED it). Anyway, couldn't root for a top team (ManU, ManCity, Tott, Liv, Arsenal, Chelsea) and needed some tie to America. Clint Dempsey played for Fulham, looked into it more and Fulham have had quite a few Americans over the years (McBride, Keller) so it just kinda grew from there.

First year I followed them they finished 7th and qualified for Europa. Made a run to the final the following year. Now Fulham/EPL are #2 on my list of sports teams behind the Kings (which will ALWAYS be #1 because I grew up in Torrance during the Gretzky years).
