I'm officially a Fulham fan

Long Live the King of POP.... :beermug:

Fulham owner unveils Michael Jackson statue, gives fans ultimatum
By Brooks Peck


"What are you going to do about it?"
When Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed first announced that he was going to have a statue built to honor his friend Michael Jackson and placed outside Craven Cottage, many people thought it was a joke while others wondered what business a statue of the dead singer had at a Premier League stadium.
Well, the former Harrods proprietor followed through on his promise. And on Sunday, before Fulham's match against Blackpool at the quaint little London ground that first opened in 1896, he unveiled the statue to excited fans of the singer and confused fans of Fulham. Al Fayed then danced with children and made it clear that if anyone doesn't like the statue, he doesn't really care.
From the AP:
"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."
How sweet. Any Fulham fan upset that a statue was built to honor a man who attended one match with Al Fayed in 1999 instead of a legendary player or someone with an actual association to the sport might want to reconsider their anger, though. After the statue was unveiled, Fulham went on to beat Blackpool 3-0. So, clearly, the odd presence of the King of Pop isn't hurting their results.
A close-up of the awkwardly posed, over-sized action figure statue right this way...

Okay Daft Trini, so when are you going to start the Fulham Forever Thread?  ;)

Guess if you have been a Fulham fan but not a MJ fan then you can "Beat It"!   ;D

Otherwise if you are a Fulham fan and also an MJ fan like Daft Trini then "You Are Not Alone"!   :D

Is "Human Nature" I suppose, but we would all be better served if Daft just "Keep it in the Closet".  Or better yet, just tell it to "The Man in the Mirror".  So much "Pretty Young Thing" out there... even "Dirty Diana", and he loving Fullham instead? "Dangerous".
