Hello from England

Hello from England.

I have watched Ice Hockey on and off for many years but I am determined now more than ever to get in to it and Blackhawks are my team. Why? Well Chicago was the first place I visited when I took a trip in 2011 and fell in love. If I could move from Manchester to Chicago tomorrow I absolutely would.

Staying up late and watching Hockey just feels right, already (lol), and I am thoroughly enjoying it especially this current game against Blues.

Thought I would introduce myself and say hello.

Cheers.

Staying up late?

Are you a City fan by any chance? I was watching them win the Premier League last year and I knew just how those fans felt not having a championship in so many years. It's the same way Blackhawks fans felt winning the Cup after 49 years in 2010.

LMAO! Gov'nah and Harry Potter. Thought I had already worked my magic

I am a Red though. I live basically next to Old Trafford so it is ideal for home games.

MADchester is gone, days of over commercialised nonsense now

As a United fan then you are used to winning. I hope the Blackhawks can oblige you this year.

As an undetermined BPL fan - I'm leaning Fulham/QPR/Everton - welcome!

Fulham - Quiet underdogs all the time seemingly, solid squad, Martin Jol half decent manager.

QPR - Tony Fernandes runs it, also the owner of Caterham F1 team. Bought horribly badly in the summer, over spent on wages. Hughes sacked and now got Harry Redknapp in. He will do a job but I cannot stand the bloke and has a horrible philosophy on Football.

Everton - Moyes one of the longest standing Premier League managers, a good manager as well. Buys very well with one of the smallest budgets in the league. They are having a very good season as well.

Of the three, Everton currently I would say.

Hope that helps

Everton was my team, but Fellaini is gone and I can't join a team on a good run. I'm leaning QPR for that reason.

Welcome!

Nice to see a fan from England, im from Sweden. Im also a hardcore Liverpool supporter, so if you are looking for trouble im up for it. I respect man united so maybe we shall bury our axes on this board.

u can always blame Suarez

Fellaini won't leave them during this transfer window.

Not this window, but he's not long for Everton.
