Most Fulham fans were breathing a sigh of relief yesterday as the King of Pop was dethroned - but it seems not everyone was happy.
Judging by his expression, the team's manager, Martin Jol, was feeling distinctly emotional as he watched the much-maligned Michael Jackson statue being removed by a team of stonemasons outside Craven Cottage.
The 7ft 6ins artwork was put up behind the Hammersmith Stand to much bemusement in April 2011 by then-owner Mohammed al Fayed, in what most fans described as an Off the Wall Decision.
But Bad al Fayed, in what was a Dangerous move, told any dissenters they could 'got to hell' if they didn't like it.
However, al Fayed sold the club to American Shahid Khan in the summer and, in a Thriller of a decision, the new owner said removing the statue was 'the right thing to do'.
In a statement on the club's website, he said: "Craven Cottage means the world to generations of Fulham supporters, and I have heard from many of them over the past two months.
"Our supporters' views on the statue have been made clear.
"I respect Mr al Fayed and know he had good intentions in paying an individual tribute. However, the removal of the statue is the right thing for Fulham Football Club."
Although most fans certainly don't think the plinth has Gone Too Soon, manager Jol looks as though he does - although he will be glad he didn't Beat It to the exit door after recent dodgy results.
It is understood the Egyptian tycoon has received offers for the statue and might sell it to raise money for charity.
