Their protests against Massimo Cellino’s ownership and manner of running of Leeds United have garnered headlines both at home and abroad.
Hugely symbolic, yet strikingly poignant, mock funerals, a city-to-ground march and broken promises projected onto stand awnings have opened many eyes to Cellino’s modus operandi.
As protests go, the ones mentioned, organised by fan pressure group Time To Go Massimo (TTGM) are classics. Individualised, different and fresh they fulfil that one main criterion: catch the public zeitgeist and stay there.
With every home game at Elland Road comes the expectation that another protest ‘stunt’ will be revealed that will keep the media pressure ramped up on Massimo Cellino. I use the term ‘stunt’ not in a derogatory way; I mean not to demean the group, their efforts or their cause, but in a way to catch the almost pop-up nature of what they do.
With the last home game of the season little over a week away, a tie at Elland Road against already-relegated Charlton, you can bet that something is already a-plot for that game. You’d expect this to be the case with a movement born out of frustration and a definite sense of anger at the way that they view Massimo Cellino to be tearing Leeds United asunder.
However, not all Leeds fans are of the ‘Cellino-Out’ persuasion, that would be too easy up at Elland Road, far too simple for anything involving Leeds United. Far too simple indeed. There’s three factions involved: TTGM, pro-Cellino supporters (the Celliebers) and those who are just Leeds United fans – well four if you count the apathetic.
After giving TTGM sufficient time to answer, one of these fans took the opportunity to inbox The72 with some questions that he’d forwarded to the group after they’d asked for fans to send them any queries on their official Twitter feed.
Here are the questions put forward to the Time To Go, Massimo group by the fan in question.
