Dear Soccerheads,

I am looking for a new EPL team to cheer for. When I lived in England 1 years ago, I adopted Man City, mostly out of irritation to ManU fans. I also loved Shaun Goater and his toothy smile. But it's not like I'm glued to them.

I dislike superpowers so that eliminates ManU, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool. As a Pittsburgh Pirates fan, I do not need another cellar dweller. Up-and-coming teams are okay, but I don't need drama, which seems to be Man City's persona now.

So, any suggestions as to a new EPL team to root for. I watched Newcastle and remember that I liked their stripey shirts and Geordie accents. I also thought about Everton since they took a shot at Donovan and they wear blue.

Any suggestions?

I sugest West Ham or Fulham, both are mid size clubs that can mix it with the big boys but at the same time are no superpowers!
