If I was going to follow an American it'd be Howard over Dempsey anyway but I don't pay any more attention to Everton than Fulham/Tottenham.
I don't know the severity of all of the rivalries, but before I picked a team, I only had a list of which ones I hated. I was told that all of those teams hated Tottenham, so it seemed to be a logical fit on my end
