That statue

Just feels like a missed opportunity.  A sky high concrete Michael Jackson in the Egyptian style might have been genuinely far out.  I’m firmly in the “it’s his club, he can do what he wants” camp, but just wish he’d got a slightly better statue made.   Still, we’re unbeaten with MJ in our corner.  Can’t be bad.

  1. What song is it that is inscribed on the plinth?

    I think the whole thing is a fantastic joke. I loved Mo’s comment about people who don’t like it – apparently going to support Chelsea is comparable to going to hell.

    1. The Chairman Mo quote from the AP article was:

      “Why is it bizarre?” he said. “Football fans love it. If some stupid fans don’t understand and appreciate such a gift, they can go to hell.

      “I don’t want them to be fans. If they don’t understand and don’t believe in things I believe in, they can go to Chelsea, they can go to anywhere else.”

      Chelsea, the defending English champion, is the nearest Premier League team to Fulham, with both clubs located in southwest London.

      “People will queue to come and visit it from all over Britain and it is something that I and everybody else should be proud of,” Al Fayed said.


      I’m not too keen on the “if they don’t believe in things I believe in, they can go to Chelsea” part, but he is right that it’s going to attract a lot of fans and attention. It’s already been plastered all over news sites in the U.S., but more-so, I think, because it’s so horrid looking.
