FANTASY BOB'S CASUAL OBSERVATIONS ON CARLTON, CRICKET, LIFE AND ALL THAT OTHER STUFF
Saturday, 5 May 2012
Go ahead Edinburgh cricket club Carlton were quick to deny that they had expressed an interest in the purchase of Battersea Power Station for the purpose of developing a new ground. Rumours abounded in London's property circles that the Scottish cricket champions would step in after minor football outfit Chelsea had announced plans to redevelop the site which would involve using the iconic building's iconic chimneys as iconic goal posts. Local residents told reporters 'A replica of Grange Loan on the South Bank is just what this area needs. It would be iconic.'
A spokesman for the club told Fantasy Bob, 'Yes, we had looked at the Battersea option, but the club's planning commitee had to take account of the fact that it was the cover for what most of them regard as one of Pink Floyd's poorer albums. They didn't think it appropriate for a club of our status. However having looked at the Floyd's career as a whole, the committee is now evaluating options for a new Grange Loan on the Dark Side of the Moon.' Now that would be iconic.
