Welcome to the Onion Bag, your bi-weekly look at the weird and wonderful stories from world football.

Today, we kick off with the news that the King of Pop has finally been dethroned at Craven Cottage. What should Fulham replace their much-maligned Michael Jackson statue with? We have some Bad ideas.

Elsewhere in London, Tottenham have a new chant for Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, which is sure to annoy Mesut Ozil-loving Arsenal fans.

Keith Gillespie has used his autobiography to regale us with a tale about getting knocked out by Alan Shearer during a team-building exercise, while Real Madrid were the subject of numerous police enquiries on Wednesday evening after they "robbed" La Liga newcomers Elche of a point. 

Finally, we look at Luis Suarez, who has once again made headlines for the wrong reasons. This time, the club have accused him of "damaging the brand." But does it matter if the Uruguayan is sullying the Anfield side's good name if he is getting results? 

Take a look at today's show and leave your thoughts below.
