My name is D.J. Switzer, the man behind the curtain at WSOTP and a 30-year-old footie fanatic hailing from the great city of Cincinnati, Ohio. My love affair with soccer spans more than a quarter century, the result of a deep joy for playing and watching the beautiful game. And though I’ve been been lucky enough to play at nearly every level here in the states, I hold no illusions of grandeur: I was never that great of a player.
For those who don’t know me, I’m a massive Tottenham Hotspur fan. I also foster what could be considered an unhealthy obsession with Gareth Bale. My apologies in advance for the inordinate amount of postings spent on either topic. Aside from the occasional Spurs rant, my goal is to deliver you semi-regular and potentially coherent thoughts about the world’s game from an American fan’s perspective.
Outside of soccer, I do have a normal life with a job, a mortgage and wife. Though it is often uninteresting… so I don’t intend to bore you with too many of the details. If you must know more — or just want to get in touch — you can connect with me here.
