Fulham to unveil Michael Jackson statue outside stadium

Hopefully it’s not a replica of this one


Fulham owner Mohammed al Fayed has revealed he plans to erect a commemorative statue of pop legend Michael Jackson outside Craven Cottage.

Al Fayed and Jackson shared a special friendship (MJ even did a lap of the ground clad in a Fulham scarf once) and the eccentric Egyptian has decided to pay tribute to their bromance by commissioning a statue of the King of Pop ‘in an iconic pose’, <insert crass joke here>, to be unveiled before the home game with Blackpool on April 3rd.

Said al Fayed:

He was my friend, a man with whom I shared many happy memories and who died a tragic and untimely death. He left behind a legacy of music so vast it takes one’s breath away; from a precocious talent to an ingenuity and ground breaking modernity that shall never be repeated.

It shall often be imitated, but it will never be replicated, Michael Jackson was, and shall always remain, one of a kind. I hope that many fans of his will visit the statue at the Cottage from far and wide, and that Fulham fans will appreciate seeing the finest performer in the world, in and amongst them, the finest fans in the world.

Which loosely associated celebrity figure would YOU like standing outside YOUR club’s stadium?

    Actually, it’s going to be inside the stadium… not that that makes it any the less embarrassing for us Fulham fans

    How about ‘The Situation’ in West London.
