Our recent and ongoing attempts to create an Ultras faction were referenced in the Guardian today:
...I didn't realise we were looking to create an Ultras faction? We have a group of hardcore fans who travel to all the away games and live and breathe the team, but then doesn't every team? I'd be really keen to find out who was behind our attempts to get something going.
The article is a good read. It says Ultra factions aren't just about fights and hooliganism, that's just the stuff that sells papers/gets clicks. Instead they're a group that rally around a common problem. Either fighting racism, homophobia or other perceived problems.
Personally I'd be absolutely delighted if we set up an Ultra group and became known as the fans who took a stand against something, or helped out those poor people at Calais who happened to be born in the wrong place. I live in Tulse Hill, a few roads away from Dulwich Hamlet (https://www.theguardian.com/global/2015/aug/23/dulwich-hamlet-londons-most-hipster-football-club) and I've been along to see them purely because of their fans. Good on them.
|ITFC London: Fantastic turnout in Jetlag, about 150-200|
at 20:33 16 May 2015
Well done to Horry for organising the ITFC London meet. There was over 100 in the downstairs bar, possibly 150, and at least another 50 more upstairs. Fantastic singing, great spirit, proud to be Town. I met someone after the game and they had to wait outside because the doorman was turning people away because they were full.
Jetlag is my regular bar- I used to work opposite Warren St station with a couple of Town fans. We have met up and watched all the televised Town games in Jetlag this season and it's normally the three of us, a couple of friends we bring and a couple of lone men who popped in because they knew it would be showing the football (with the exception of the previous Nodge game which had a few more). We normally have to negotiate with the barmaid to get the sound on at the kick off because no one is clearly watching the Aussie Rules football even though you've advertised it. To see it go from empty to packed was brilliant.
Can we make Jetlag our regular ITFC London pub? There's normally a few threads here when we've got a TV game asking which London pub to go to, with the result being a few a Town fans in this pub, a few in that pub, a few In that pub and no atmosphere in any of them. Not that every televised game has to re-create the atmosphere of the North Stand Lower but it's still good to go to the pub knowing you're going to watch it with fellow Town fans. There's also an ITFC London Facebook group too: http://www.facebook.com/itfclondon.
What do you say; make Jetlag our 'official' London pub?
