Statue of Ted to be put to bed

This is one to lighten the hearts of the most depressed. Ted Bates, no relation to Norman, was a player and manager of Southampton and quite the cult hero. Which is all well and good. A statue was commissioned. Which is all well and good. Sadly, it's all out of proportion, making Ted look more like a bronze munchkin version of Jimmy Krankee. Which has raised the ire of Saints fans. Just look at it. I have had a quick look around a Pompey message board and this one did make me giggle: "can someone please explain to me why the scum have erected a statute of Ernie Wise outside their pit?"
If statues dated, Bates and Thatcher would be a hoot. The behemoth and the krankie.
