My full name is Alexey Bogatiryov (go by Alex for your convenience). I was born in 1985 in Kiev, Soviet Union which is modern day Ukraine. Been a huge soccer fan ever since my Dad took me to watch Dinamo Kiev play Spartak Moscow in their first Champions League Match in 1994. Always had been fascinated with football history and continued to closely follow football since moving to the States in 1995 when my Father won a Greencard Lottery. Since then, I was disillusioned with the low quality of American soccer and spent a lot of time tracking down papers, magazines, and later webcasts and cable television to keep track of football. I have finished a BS in Finance at the University of Denver and hope to work in London someday so I can watch the Premier League live.
My favorite player is my hometown hero Andrei Shevchenko and my favorite team is Chelsea, partially because they were historical underachievers but were able to pull themselves up and partially because I want to prove that Roman's money can buy success.
