time to support the team
even though I have lived in France for nearly three years, have no intention of living in the UK again, and may even start the process of becoming a French citizen (for the vote among other benefits) now that I think I can pass the language test - this is still the team for me. Since my niece got married in 2007 and had a baby girl very recently I have had family who are francophone and with origins in Togo, and who live mostly in the USA. The Togo-born ones love football, but do not support France though they are francophone. The US-born ones, and even the US-resident ones who were born in the UK, no longer pretend football allegiance, as in the USA they Do Not Care. But my step-great-nephew, age 12, born in Togo and a mad keen footballer, his dad ditto, and who knows, maybe my new great-niece Tessa, may be part of the football future of the USA. I hope so. And let's not forget that allegiance is not that simple.
