Are you not entertained, Leeds fans?

Elland Road, often the maddest place in English football could get even crazier if Russell ‘Maximus’ Crowe joins Massimo Cellino in the coliseum of football’s most bonkers club.

The Gladiator star, a lifelong Leeds United fan, asked his Twitter followers if they think he should get involved with the club earlier today before giving advice to Leeds Fans LLP, a group looking to buy GFH’s share in the club.


It’d sound too far-fetched to be taken seriously at any other club, but at Leeds, where reality is so often stranger than fiction, this is just another Wednesday.

And it’s not like Russell Crowe doesn’t have the credentials. Money is the obvious one, which he clearly has, but he also co-owns an Australian rugby league side so has some experience of running a club; even if it does play a different sport, that’s more experience than 90% of the people investing in football clubs these days have.
