Mick Dennis Column: Statues are Moore like impostors!

Byline: Mick Dennis

YOU are not supposed to say these things but, sorry, that new statue of West Ham's World Cup winners Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters, with Everton's Ray Wilson, doesn't look like them.

Newham Council got Philip Jackson to sculpt the bronze statue because he did the one of Sir Matt Busby at Old Trafford.

Instead of copying Man U, they should have looked outside the Premiership.

There's a group of statues of Sir Stanley Matthews at the Britannia Ground by local artists which is full of movement and one of Billy Wright at Molineux by James Butler which is majestic. The Jackson four are terrible. Peters looks like Gene Pitney, Wilson looks like Anthony Perkins. Hurst and Moore don't look like anyone in particular, least of all Hurst and Moore.
