The Football League Paper - - STEVE CURRY -

WHEN Shahid Khan had the hideous statue of Michael Jack­son re­moved from be­side the Thames at Craven Cot­tage I felt maybe a man of common sense had taken over Ful­ham. Should have known bet­ter.

It is my belief that had he stuck with Martin Jol and his very able coach Billy McKin­lay the club would still be in the Premier League. In­stead three man­agers have come and gone in un­der 12 months and the club prop up the Cham­pi­onship with one point from seven games.

The at­mos­phere around the club has de­te­ri­o­rated, there is a lack of trust, and un­cer­tainty has spread from the dress­ing room to ter­races. Ful­ham’s fans de­serve bet­ter. Say what you want about Mo­hammed Al-Fayed – and I did – but many of those loyal to the team would have him, yes, and the statue, back.

HIDEOUS: Jack­son statue
