Fulham To Get Michael Jackson Statue: Chelsea Make Do With Torres

by | 17th, March 2011

HAVING sold Harrods, Mohammed Al Fayed will now locate his statue of Michael Jackson to Craven Cottage, home of Fulham FC.

Says Mo:

“I hope that many fans of his will visit the statue, and that Fulham fans will appreciate seeing the finest performer in the world, in and amongst them, the finest fans of the world.”

Anorak likes this approach to statues at football grounds. If no players are starry enough, or dead enough, to recall in cement, then why not pick one of the chairman’s favourite acts?

Fayed goes for Wacko Jacko. Elton John, a bigwig at Watford, should opt for a huge wax effigy of Princess Diana. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich could hark back to his past life selling plastic ducks and erect a massive quacker at the entrance to the old Shed. West Hams fans could get a tribute to owner David Sullivan’s porno oeuvre.

Note: Fulham’s local rivals Chelsea get Fernando Torres for £50m. Fulham get Michael Jackson. Which one do you think will score first..?
