Twitter bomb Thai Union Group social media !!!!!

 

The twitter account for Thai Union that links directly from their official website has less than 1,000 followers. Doesn't look like it it is a significant vehicle for them.

I can’t get behind a physical protest with Covid still a threat. 
 

Something unusual that is likely to get the national press interested needs to happen. It might be a bizarre idea, but what if fans started sending tins of tuna to the club en masse?

Definitely could post something to the club or email all the same thing at the same time on the same day.

Or even bombard social media all at the same time with the same message

Wait until Covid restrictions are eased, which shouldn’t be too long, and I’m sure Neil will get behind it and supporters trusts too and a lot will get involved 



Personally I wouldn't be behind a handful of people going and standing outside a closed ground whilst the chairman is millions off miles away in Thailand

This is what is possible if things are properly organised.

A Leeds United fans group plans more audacious protest stunts in its bid to force controversial owner Massimo Cellino to sell his majority stake in the club.

 

Protest group 'Time To Go Massimo' beamed a series of 30ft high images on to Elland Road stadium before and during Monday night's goalless draw against Middlesbrough and claims to have received positive feedback from the majority of fans.

 

The group, backed by funds raised from anti-Cellino fans, now plans a fly-over at a forthcoming home game and with other ideas also on their agenda told supporters to "watch this space".
 

"We had an idea that (Monday night's protest) was going to be pretty good but it went way beyond our expectations," 'Time To Go Massimo' spokesman Tom Banks said.
 

"We thought it looked fantastic and the feedback we got from everybody was that they thought the same, the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive.

"There's been no negative reaction, so from that perspective it could not have gone better."

 

'Time To Go Massimo' launched its campaign on Thursday by funding a poster installed on advertising hoardings outside the East Stand calling for Cellino to go.

 

Leeds took legal action to have the poster removed later on Thursday, but the group claims it informed police and took legal advice before beaming Monday night's images.
 

"We did wonder why we went so big so quickly because it will be hard to follow," Banks said.

 

"What we do next will most likely be at the home game against Bolton (on March 5). We want to keep up the momentum.

 

"We think the projection will have empowered fans to make their voice heard.

 

"We have some more ideas, including a fly-over. The pilot is booked and is waiting for a home game when the weather is forecast to be fine.

 

"The pilot is on stand-by. It should have been the Forest game (on February 6) but it was overcast, so it could now be Bolton."

 

The group claims to have raised over £4,000 from 228 separate donations to help pay for Monday night's stunt, which cost £2,600.

 

The protest slogans were projected from a council-owned car park on Lowfields Road by specialists EMF Technology, responsible for famously projecting a 60ft nude image of Gail Porter on to the Houses of Parliament in 1999.

 

"We've still got a couple of grand left over and we're going to open the donation fund again," Banks added.

 

"We received over £4,000 from people all over the world without them knowing what we were going to do.


 

"We had to keep it that way for obvious reasons, but now people have seen the projected images and when we reopen the fund we're hoping to raise significantly more.

 

"Our message to Mr Cellino is to hear what the supporters say. A growing number are increasingly fed up with his regime. Our message to the fans is 'watch this space'."

 

Leeds refused to comment on the protest images when approached.

Absolutely NOT this under any circumstances in my opinion (I'd be 100% against stuff like this)


Same goes for ANY targeting of any individuals including the chairmans family members

I’d hope there would be hundreds, maybe a few thousand in June time

I'd also point out that anything done would need to be 100% ORIGINAL not just copying what someone else did

It needs to be original, inspirational, ingenious and ideally FUNNY too

A simple “Chansiri Out”

Definitely over due to do something to show how many of us have had enough NOW! 

 

However it is illegal to gather right now.... Even socially distanced so physically going there would just get you all funds and maybe those seen to have organised a £10,000 fine..... So wait for covid rules to be relaxed a bit first. Though we do need something to show enough is enough now and how many now feel that!

I like the idea of posting a picture of a happy time with family or friends watching Wednesday - and saying that this is under threat from DC.

Nice emotional way to do it, safe and would get the football world behind us

Again on this - this is the absolute worst thing to do

 

I mean - talk me through it 

Let's say 10am on Tuesday 'the club' gets 800 emails going 'chansiri out'


The staff at the club who are having to work for the chairman would then have their inboxes absolutely decimated 

It would also cause them to spend time on clearing out spammy emails instead of things like refunding fans etc 


Basically it would only affect the wrong people

Timing is absolutely key.  Any kind of protest that goes against the Lockdown will get the wrong headlines, we'll look irresponsible, and that will be what the media will take from it.  

 

We'd be better taking our time and coming up with something effective.  Something that will get national press, and something that Chansiri couldn't ignore.

 

Targeting his family, or his families business is the wrong way to go about this and would be more likely to truly make him throw his toys out of his pram.  I also get the impression that he has VERY little to do with the family business anyway.

 

25000 Owls turning up to the next game we can attend, but then refusing to go inside would send a much clearer message.

Yes hear what you’re saying. 
Just brainstorming on something that is safe but that would be a effective.

Personally, I feel like circumstances are dictating that we need to wait for crowds to return before escalating this to a combination of non-attendance by some and vocal protesting in the ground by others.

 

Protests should be directed at DC, but Paxo is definitely fair game as well.......

Every protest is going to disrupt someone though. Like when police thought they were going to have a quiet afternoon and then found out 100,000 people would march through London, you can’t decide against a protest because it will inconvenience people, it’s the point to disrupt so you make a noise that people will hear.
