    My parents are from JA (mum from St Thomas and dad from Manchester) but i've never been there (I know I know). Me and my older bro both support Tottenham but for some reason my dad supports West Ham. I'm quite lucky because most of my friends of caribbean heritage here (North London) also support Tottenham so it's good when we get together to watch the games mostly on tv but sometimes at the stadium.

    My wife is from Dominica and whenever we go there I always wear my Spurs shirt around Roseau and I mostly get comments about Arsenal, Man U or Liverpool. Hopefully over the next few years we'll become more popular throughout the caribbean.

    I'm from Dominica, actually traveling on the 28th. I'm from the north (Portsmouth) and it seems they all want Chelsea shirts. It will be interesting to see how they are now seeing that the chavs are not doing so well

    Oh I've been to Portsmouth a few times, think that's where the big US uni campus is right? I haven't been there for a few years but my kids love it. I think mostly they follow who is doing well at the time. Most Jamaicans that I know who had an interest in football from the 80s are Liverpool fans. Think Barnes had some influence on that too. Most of my cousins here (mid to late 30s) are Pool fans. Had to go through some dark times in the 90s I tell ya. Luckily things have swung around more in our favour in recent years, although they still have won more trophies. We're much more respected.

    It depends on where you're staying and the cable subscription they have. In Jamaica, we have regional, American and UK channels that broadcast EPL matches.

    Also, you can PM me if you need further assistance.

    Thanks, have got ESPN & ESPN intl, SportsMax, SportsMax2, Fox Soccer Plus, Fox (wsvn) Miami, plus various other American stuff. I am in Falmouth but haven't a clue as to the cable service the hotel uses!

    Okay. Not all of those may broadcast EPL matches and if they do, Spurs' may not be a selected match. You should be able to check their programme schedule online and then locate one that does. If none of them do, you may need to watch it online.
