Welcome to AC St. Louis Fanatic

Bring the history of US Soccer to St. Louis

Hello everyone! My name is Dave Trotter and I am the founder of the AC St. Louis Fanatic blog/website. Many of you might know me from Ligue 1 Talk, but I, contrary to popular belief, am supportive of US Soccer as well (and sometimes even the EPL, though I rarely say that in public).

For years now, I have been saying that there needs to be a soccer team in St. Louis. With it’s rich tradition and history, the absence of a team in The Gateway to the West was mystifying. Five of the starters on the 1950 team that defeated England 1-0 in the World Cup were born in St. Louis. Therefore, it is very fitting for a team to be located in the heart of American soccer.

First of all, we need to thank Jeff Cooper for his tireless efforts to bring a team to St. Louis. After being snubbed by the MLS a number of times, it is nice to see that the team has a home in the new NASL. So, thanks Jeff for bringing a team to the region.

This blog is looking to unite fans from all points of the earth that are fans of AC St. Louis. I, myself, am a Chicago native, but lived in Southern Illinois for years. While I am a Chicagoan at heart (never, ever will go for the Cards…Go Cubs!), I have always wanted a soccer team for the residents of Southern Illinois to support. And now they have it.

Hopefully we will be able to get this blog to grow, and create a ‘community that is both supportive of the AC St. Louis and the NASL.

Welcome!
