Fans on roofs

Recommended Posts

Seen this on football ground guide website. In the old days when health and safety was not an issue fans could take their chance and sit on top of a roof, here’s a pic from Colchester v Bradford in the FA Cup in 1948

Hahaha love looking at old photos like this. You'd probably be arrested these days. But the risk of death is pretty high lol

Not a roof but still....

No words from me could ever do justice to this picture - here Millwall fans climb onto the floodlight posts and scoreboard to watch a match against Newcastle at The Den in 1957

 

Amazing that structure held up to the weight of all them men. They must have a great view near the top.

Only roof i ever been on was at Shrewsbury Towns old Gay meadow ground. I doubt many would be able to get up to the roof, with the height of modern stadia. 

Another reason to hate modern football i reckon. Were Birmingham City, we'll stand on your roof, they think nah you won't.
