I've never heard of Udinese supporters being anything but passionate. I don't think it's anything like Lazio or Verona. You always get idiots at the games. I sat next to a Juve supporter at the stadium that spent most of the game insulting Pogba and Asamoah. It was more tongue in cheek than anything racist (I'm also not white).

I don't recall anything bad about Udinese fans behaviour, and certainly not a history of racism.

They're a good club who are well run and have their famous network of scouts, hence the multi-national list of players out on loan.  They own the Spanish side Granada and English side Watford, and supply them both with players.

Sorry if you know all that, but I thought I'd provide a background.

Welcome! Udinese fans aren't associated with any political views, and the club has had many black and other non-white players, none of whom have ever had any complaints. This hasn't been a great season to support the zebrette, but I think things are looking up again, especially with the great performances of Simone Scuffet in goal. Only 17 and so far better than Brkic and Kelava put together.

Di Natale is a living legend and impossible not to love, hopefully he decides to play another year. Still, Udinese had great teams before TotÚ and will after him as well. It's the 2nd oldest club in Italy after Genoa and next year will be our 20th consecutive season in Serie A.

Also, the actions of a portion of a team's organized support group don't have to prevent you from liking the team. ;)
