probably like me, not much, but hey the art critics said
It's a spectacularly bad piece of kitsch that doesn't even look all that much like Michael Jackson.

It's so bad it's hilarious, if I was a Fulham fan I would be disgusted, I never liked Wacko and I still don't.  And when Al Fyed said if fans don't like the statue then Fulham doesn't want them, I think he misses the point about football clubs and chairmen, he might think he owns the club, but he's only a caretaker, the club is the fans, a club doesn't disown its fans based on their feelings towards a statue of a pop star.

No accounting for taste. Al Fayed's 'empire' appears to be crumbling (he sold Harrods) and he seems to have been left with nowhere else to dump place the item.

I'm sure the feeling is reciprocated!
