Man Utd signing an American was a big deal back then. It put him on the map. Then to Everton.
Once he took the starter's role with our Men's National team before the 2010 World Cup, it just followed back to Everton. Tim Howard, US Team keeper and media spokesman. What Club does he play for?
Having our most famous player going out on loan to Everton twice certainly helped. But two World Cup qualifiers and World Cups with Evertonian Tim Howard as one of our main guys, for me, is the big reason.

From an American's perspective, I'm not sure what to put this down to. Some of it may have been the Tim Howard connection. Maybe a tiny bump since Roger Bennett from Men in Blazers is a big fan. The NBC sports coverage doesn't particularly favor Everton.
I think the main thing is that Everton produced a lot of rumors and articles through the Moshiri buyout and subsequent "£100m war chest". It's funny how baseless tabloid rumor mill journalism can help a team boost its international profile.

Who's the next big thing in US football; we should try to acquire him.

There were some rumors in the summer about him moving to the RS, but those came to nothing.

Also, since most of my compatriots probably can't spell Lighchester correctly, I'm surprised they topped us.
Frigging figures the Satanists and the fucking hipster heroes Spurs came in as 1 & 2. We did elect a Nerf potato as president sooooooo please don't judge us
