OMFG :P. No, you were young and innocent at that time, didn't know how to choose the right team :P.

I wasnt a Fan of any club I just got a Jersey that I could wear while playing soccer. And at that time the the only club i could hear was Man Utd from my frds and I liked the look of their black jersey, I dont know what yr was tht. So I bought it.

I believe I remember someone saying Joe was at a trial that day for a team that wore red. Probably borrowing a friend's shirt, as it looks a little too large for him.

Lmao.. who cares

man-utd were more of a brand than a football club back then, we have caught up though.

i remember having ac milan, juve, inter, barca, madrid shirts as a kid, just for the different colours.

I remeber JT was a Man Utd fan as a kid. Not sure...

I was flicking through a book called 'The Special Ones' by the Fans which is a Chelsea Book and in it gives interviews with players, amongst others JT and it asks the question who did you support as I child and he said Man U

He even went for trials to Man Utd but was rejected by Fergie. (I think)

OK, i'm just reading his interview and it says that he spent a year between Chelsea and Man U deciding which one to sign for, but deep down he knew all along that he would choose Chelsea.

Why? Wasnt he a fan of Man Utd? Why would he choose Chelsea? From what I read, (long time back) he was either

1. Turned off by the competition at Man Utd and saw a chance at Chelsea.

2. Rejected by Fergie.

Reading on he says the main reason he chose Chelsea was because of someone called Bob Orsborn who is a trainer. He goes on to say that the training was brilliant, so enjoyable. He just fell in love with the club. The interview is very interesting and asks him about what made him become a footballer, his first professional game, memorable game, etc... Captain Marvel his book may give more of an insight into about choosing between us and Man U. I haven't been able to get Captain Marvel as it's currently being reprinted i'm told, but I might get a copy of Amazon.

From I have read and been told, he has always been a Chelsea fan since he was a kid and while developing at West Ham and at their academy was reportedly offered roughly £10 from Man Utd. at 16. Obviously it never happened as he would stay at West Ham until he was about 22 for Chelsea when West Ham got regulated.
