Among other legendary figures that fans will be unable to have on the shirts are Cantona, Beckham and Ronaldo.
A spokesman for the go ahead Edinburgh club said, 'We understand why fans are unhappy. Frankly we didn't think that Fantasy Bob had any image to have rights about, but we seem to be wrong. Apparently other clubs such as Manchester United are having a similar problem. Although why any Man U fan would want a Fantasy Bob shirt is beyond us.'
Carlton's new shirts are attractively decorated with the name of the club's new sponsor, legendary holiday giant Thomson. And very fine they look too. But the lawyers have stopped the world famous Fantasy Bob name from being attached.
