NOT An April Fool's Post!

What's the first thing you think of when you are thinking of buying tickets to a Premier League match instead of watching from home*? Obviously, the answer is, "Does the stadium have a statue of Michael Jackson?" In Fulham's case, the answer is now "yes". How does owner Mohamed Al Fayed explain this?

"Why is it bizarre? 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 is, of course, the geographically closest Premiership team to Fulham, though they are wayyyyy better. The owner does claim "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."

In other words: suck it, fans. I think he's ready to be an NFL owner!
