Fulham To Unveil Statue In Memory Of Michael Jackson

Wacko Jacko - Coming To A Stadium Near You

Fulham are set to announce that they will unveil a statue of the pop king Michael Jackson after Al Fayed confirmed it would officially be unveiled when Fulham host Blackpool at Craven Cottage on April 3.


To erect a statue of a musician amongst some of the clubs greatest ever players is just total madness. And the comments Fayed made re the statue? Jeeesus:

“Michael Jackson was truly a legend, a term used too often in this modern world saturated in the hyperbole surrounding celebrity,” said 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.”

Cringeworthy stuff folks. Surely former players such as George Best and even Roy Hodgson deserve a spot on the statue waiting list more than the music mastermind who only ever attended one game.
