can be ultra left or right wing depending on the team and many have strict political codes.
Love a good dust up with the Italian police and are a big power within the Italian game, deciding on anything from what songs to sing to whether or not a club can buy a certain player
Ultra groups have been known to bollock their teams players after a bad performance
1. Support their team through non-stop singing (most important) and big displays (tifos) involving flags, banners, flares, smoke bombs, fireworks, balloons, ticker-tape and the like.
2. Fight against Modern Football which they feel hinders their ability to support their team properly. Ultras can be very confrontational towards stewards/police who try to prevent them from supporting their team.
Ultras, despite what Danny Dyer tries to tell you, are not the same as hooligans, although they aren't angels who just want to wave a few pretty looking flags around either.
Being an ultra is a way of life, it's 24/7. Punks are punks, goths are goths and ultras are ultras.
You: God, so am I.
