Didn't know exactly where to put this, but Liverpool is on a tour of Asia. Mentions how they compare to Man Utd, which is most popular. Since the RP hasn't really been a football nation, I think they're ready to be exploited in terms of branding and starting loyalty. Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal might have an advantage because to start with their brand is already popular. This might be a chance for Fulham only because of Neil. Perhaps a German team?
Liverpool hoping for Asian tonic May 6, 2011
'Liverpool, don't come!' read the main sports headline in April on a mega-portal site in one of the countries lined up for the English team's summer Asian tour - not the kind of reaction you want when you are trying to expand your brand in the world's biggest continent.
But then knocking Manchester United off their perch as the No. 1 English team in Asia was never going to be easy. Even in the South-east, a region reared on Anfield domination of the 70s and 80s, Liverpool have fallen behind as Thailand national team coach Bryan Robson told me in Bangkok last September.
Quite frankly, I think Fulham should capitalize on Neil Etheridge. Just as Man United exploited J.S. Park's korean popularity, Fulham should try get a few Filipino fans and Filipino-American fans. With dempsey already on fulham, I don't think it would hard for fulham to get a few fil-am fans.
On liverpool, I think liverpool has good share of asian fans, not as huge as Man U but still sizable. If they are ever going to expand to more asian fans, the beat time is now. Now is the best time, liverpool being gone from ty to suddenly reviving with kenny will definitely appeal to many fans.
