To legitimise highlighting West Ham’s effortless dispatch of ex-title contenders Liverpool last night, we thought we’d bring you news of another US celebrity/politician who supports a Premier League team.
Barak Obama, a candidate to be candidate in this November’s US presidential elections, once visited the Boelyn Ground and is now forever Claret and Blue. Good lad, he’s got our vote (metaphorically, of course – we don’t want to imply that the US elections are open to rigging).
Other US celebrity fans of Premier League clubs? Tom Hanks is an Aston Villa fan, apparently. We hope they’re very happy together.
