When someone says the Ground was full to the rafters, I think this what they mean.

The engineer who designed that roof, must have been wincing!

That's a fantastic image. I wouldn't have wanted to be below that lot on the roof!

Hard to see the Spurs fans sneaking out when they go 1-0 down though.

Great photo. Notice the famous white horse from the 1923 FA Cup Final ( right hand corner of photo ) made an appearance. That horse must have travelled the country keeping the crowds under control!
