Different point of view

Hello, I am Viktor 16 years of age from Sofia. I love football and never miss a game of may favorite team. I am always there, close to the pitch and to the players and trainers.

I love that game, because my father learnt me that favorite team and love for it is a sacred thing. It is a thing you believe and would die for.
There is one detail, I cannot move my legs. I am like this since I was born 16 years ago. But you know, that his not make me a bad person or not an ultras fan.
I can tell you with a hand on my heart that I did not miss any home game of my team. Sometimes If my father is not at work, we go to away games.
The most remarkable days and times for me are when the captain of the team and other players, give their shirts to me.
Because, you know when we are not winning, I suffer a lot, cry alone in my room , but never lose faith for the good upcoming moments for my team.
My room for someone can look my jail , but it is not like this. I have many shirts and scarfs, many banners and flyers, it is like a room of an ultras section.
Yes, I am not capable to move alone, but I have the spirit of an eagle- wild and free. When all the people are at work on in school , I am at home reading and following the news flow.
IS the reason I am in a chair for disabled, makes me look not like a real Ultras? I do not think so .
I have the heart and the will, I do not miss a game, I know the players of FC Levski Sofia for 20 years now. I can sing loud all the songs, I can shout and cry with all the fans.
Is the reason that I am somehow different than the other, make me not a real ultras. I do not think  so.
I can also drink a beer and wear all the casual clothing. I can and will tattoo the name of my club on my back and on my chest.
Because, just because being an Ultras is a state of mind and soul.
If I had strong legs, I might not have this strong love for my team.
However , keep supporting your favorite team, no matter what people say or think.
I will always be there  – Only Levski ole !!!!!!

Who are we ?

Who we are ?

We are young and free. We are old and rebellious. We are ultras, we are the ones that make the scenes, the art, the pyro effects and the noise on the stand.
We are the spirit, are you the spirit?
Ultras is not just a movement, ultras is the state of mind. It is the state of soul, not to be immortal, but always to stand up for your team and four your beliefs.
We support different teams and different colors , but all we are fighting for is our faith. Faith that is driven by passion and became stronger and stronger after every derby and after every goal of our favorite team.
Ultras are not criminals, ultras are rebels . Rebels for freedom:
1. Freedom of expression.
 2.  Freedom of not being pictured by cameras all around the stadium and treated like junk.
3. Freedom of spirit ….
4. Freedom of all faces to be on the light, not wearing masks….
5. Freedom of football and fan culture – football is for the people , not for the betting mafia.
We can be everywhere and can come from  nowhere. We are shadows and we are light. We are fighters and we are protectors. We protect our team, our country and our spirit.
If there are no ultras, what football will look like?
Look what is happening one every protest in every country . Who is the first  rows? Who stands up and did not go back, not a single step backward?
This is not propaganda, this is the spirit of free  and independent people. Because being Ultra fan is kind of responsibility.
Responsibility to fight in all that you believe in and to fight with a loud voice and eyes , who never blink …..
Ultras means to go into hell for your friends, to chase your enemies and to keep the flag of your team and dignity always flying high .
Freedom is ultras ,ultras is the way to infinity of belief, faith and fearless love….

The honor of the Capital

Good evening, my friends. I guess you are fine and in perfect mood. I had a very hard working day and not it is time to give you a special portion. A prediction, which waited patiently to appear on the white paper, in our case in the blog of mine. It is now dark and a little bit cold in Sofia and I am waiting for many stars to shine on the sky.

The main point for mine tonight article are two games which will be played tomorrow. Games who are for the pride of two European Capitals – London and Rome. Both of them were in the map of the Roman Empire. Londonium was one of the biggest cities , far away from the eternal city. Both cities have their magnificence and glamour. They are like pearls, like diamond which can amaze you and make you feel in love with them, no matter at what time of the year , you are about to visit them.

I propose, we are not only football fans but also men and women , who have sense for the beautiful things in life. Sports and football, by its self is kind of masterpiece and the participants of every single spectacle are more like gladiators or even like starts, who want and try to capture our hearts and eyes.

Tomorrow two English and two Italian teams will fight for the honor of their fans, for their personal pride and for the honor of the capital. Most of the times derbies show the cultural , political, financial and progressive thinking in the different societies . Let’s stop with the description and focus on our main target – football tips and passion , who is fashioned and designed in numbers, in our betting language – odds:

  1. ArsenalTottenham : this the derby of great importance , not only for the fans and spectators in London. They are very close in the standing of UK , Premier League. “Gunners”are with 25 points ,”hot spurs”are 5 points behind them. My professional opinion is for total over 2.5 goals game. Arsenal suffered a lot in Munich, after humiliating loss 1-5 from Bayern. Harry Kane and Lamela are hungry for glory and for many goals scored as well. There will be definitely a lot of corners as well. My prediction is for open game with many opportunities in front of the both goal keepers. All the odds on this match and the other , which will be predicted are according to my betting partner and odds provider – William Hill. I think that the game will end with a win of Arsenal 3-2 or even with draw result 2-2. Race to 2 goals for Arsenal is – 1,8 and Race to 3 – 3.1.Race to 2 goals for Tottenham – 4.2 Olivier Jiroux and Harry Kane to score at any time – 5. Lets’s how we will make it with the corners : over 12 – 2,6 ( this value worth a lot and I intend to bet big on it). I am convinced that there will be a red card in the game – odds is3 and penalty as well. Last marker with a lot of value is match result and both teams to score , for Arsenal – 3.5.
  2. RomaLazio : I am a fan of Lazio for more then 15 years and this is one of the most intriguing game which will soon be played. Like in the previous game, home squad is 5 points ahead in the top of the table of Italy, Seria A. Both Ultras fractions will be protesting and not attending the match , because the authorities had decided to make fences behind both doors in front of Curva Nord and Curva Sud. The expectations are for only 35 k fans to be at Olympico.  The most regular and obvious outcomes in this marvelous derby are : draw result, with both teams to score – 4,2 @ William Hill, red card awarded , penalty taken and over card line in the game ( OVER 6 cards – 1.4 or between 4-6 cards – 3.4 and match corners – over 12 @ 4.2 It will be a passionate game, Lazio won against Rosenborg with the reserve squad and boys of Pioli are prepared for another derby duel. ON the other side we have Totti, Dzeko and Sallah, not forgetting to mention Gervinho, who can score from any position. My final prognosis for the game is draw result something like 1-1 or 2-2.

Good luck , lads. I know we can make it, not as a team , but also as a community of football, sports and betting fans. Dare to win and do not forget to watch this amazing derbies. Even while I am writing this post my fingers are trembling , I love Lazio and I cross my fingers for them to win.

 

Ultras – not movie stars and criminals

Hello, dear friends. It is very nice to have a place, where you can share and writhe the things from sports live, that happen and are about to be eternal passion for all generations – previous and future. This post came to my mind very rapidly and did not let me down, till I sat and start writing.

The “Ultras Culture” is something very specific, deep and magical. Only the ones , who have not been in that circle of sport live during the stadium and on the pitch, now what the feeling is. Yes, there are hard core fans  , who are coming to bring violence and destruction in all the phases of the game, which is not correct and appropriate. Today article will be devoted to my favorite team from Italy – SS Lazio and its fans.

When we speak about ultra fans, the first word that comes on my mind is love. Love mixed with great passion, to stand next to your friend on the stadium, to shout and scream from happiness, to cry when your team has beat the rivals from Napoli in the last game from previous season(2-4 for Lazio). After the game, around 500 loyal supporters waited on the training base to congratulate our trainer and the boys with hearts of lions.

Yesterday, Lazio won in Verona , while was losing half time 1-0 but 2 goals from Biglia and Parolo , made the 3 points and victory come to Rome. The spirit of the team is same as the spirit of the public, when they believe in you, fro the very first minute of the game. The real “ultras” I always close to the team. They are like shadows that protect, believe and have faith, that all the time their favorite players and the trainer can beat anyone, and can fight like Roman soldier army.

It was a game in the previous season of Italy, Seria A. The eagles were playing against Inter at home. Both fans of the teams have friendly relationships, but when it is about the victory- friendship stops. The pubic was making noise the whole time of the game, even when Lazio were with 2 red cards and were on the wings of the ultras singing fro the terraces. The most sad thing was when Hernanez , scored the ball behind the net of Berisha. Former Lazio players, was about to cry, but this was reality(now he is playing for Juventus) . The main point here is the public of Lazio.

 

These people are heroes, they were not one, nut 3 hearts. To make such atmosphere on Olymico and any other stadiums is honor for the payers. They are not movie stars and do not cameras to picture them. Their only weapon is passion , not violence and destruction. Their most powerful way to dominate on their home stadium is their choreography. If you have time, just watch some beautiful and breath -taking pictures , who were something like 20 m length and 80 m height, covering all the Curva Nord. Before every game of the team, the eagle Olympia is making circles on the stadium.

This is the ultra spirit, this is passion and unique and grand love. This is Lazio. Non mollare mai!!!

 

P.S I forgot to say grand thanks to Mr. Pioli. One of the best trainers SS Lazio have had in the last 15 years.
