Here's Johnny

Probably by some margin the best player to ever wear the Fulham shirt, Johnny Haynes spent his entire 18 year professional career at Craven Cottage. No less an authority than Pele once described Haynes as the greatest passer of a football he had ever seen.

This fine statue was unveiled in 2008 in front of the stand which had been renamed in his honour in 2005 following his untimely death in 2003.

(The less said about the bizarre Michael Jackson statue that "graced" another corner for the ground for couple of years recently the better!)
