Statue to stay?
Rumours reach me from E13 that the statue of Moore, Hurst and Peters winning the World Cup might yet be staying in Barking Road. That would surely be the right thing to do as the trio achieved it all while playing at the Boleyn Ground. There won't be anything left of the Boleyn so at least one link to the past would remain if it did stay. Surely the club has the money to build a replica or even a new representation (plus a bust of Christian Dailly if I could put in a request) if they really want a statue at the Olympic Stadium?
