    Arsenal would exist and would be pretty much everywhere, no? Certainly in the homes of all NRA members for a start

    Exeter would have a famous academy, producing fine young men destined for great things. So, no change there.

    A good chunk of the early tulsa roughnecks were ex derby county.

    That was the United Soccer Association.

    By the time the USA merged with the NPSL to form the original NASL, the "import teams" were gone.

    Not to mention early NASL, when many British clubs decamped to America during the Summer of Love.
