It’s that time again for Forza Italian Football to take you around the grounds with a round up of the best Ultra culture from the weekend. This week it appears that everyone is sending out a message some more welcoming than others.
After four straight defeats the Brescia Ultras opted to express their frustration with their team with actions rather than words. The Biancoazzurri fans stormed their teams training ground and confronted the players and coaching staff after they managed to plummet out of the play-off places and into the bottom half of the table.
In a refreshing turn around Torino fans decided to show their support for their team that have also been struggling of late as they proudly held aloft a banner with the words “We will never leave you alone.” Added to this, the Granata tifosi were also in great voice to accompany their impressive pyro and flag display.
Some really pleasant scenes of respect and solidarity on display form the traveling Napoli fans as they showed their respects to those who lost their life’s in the Superga tragedy. The top banner reads ” Honour and respect to fallen of Superga.”
The Roma fans had a message of their own for their recently injured midfielder Kevin Strootman, the dutch midfielder picked up an injury which will not only rule him out for the rest of the season, but also the World Cup this summer. The Giallorossi tifosi also put an impressive pyro display.
A welcome banner (Top) laid out for the traveling Sampdoria fans as they arrived in Bergamo to face Atalanta. The banner reads ” Free to travel and follow their colours… Long live those who still live by these emotions.” The message refers to 93 Sampdoria the fans that where handed Diffida – a ban from entering any professional sporting event in Italy for up to three years – after they traveled to Livorno without a Tessera del Tifoso – A supporters card, which was set up by the Italian government to control who travels to away fixtures. Atalanta and Sampdoria are said to have the largest number of ultra groups that refused to apply for a tessera when the scheme was introduced. A real heart warming display of solidarity and respect for their fellow ultras from Atalanta.
Simply a beautiful picture (Bottom), who could ask for more as a large group of thuggish looking AC Milan ultras march chanting as they go towards the San Siro ahead of their fixture with Parma.
