    Eh, that’s clearly not Wembley. No track, no twin towers. White Hart Lane perhaps?

    Great picture though.

    thats wembley? looks like it holds 25k

    I didn’t say he was warming up AT Wembley folks. He’s warming up FOR the match at Wembley, at another ground clearly. Any ideas?

    That looks to me like stamford bridge, and that makes sense as he was playing for chelsea at the time.

    Definitely Stamford Bridge — note the weather vane featuring George Hillsdon, legendary Chelsea and England forward c1908. He scored 8 times for England in 14 games, got mustard-gassed in Flanders and when he died in 1941, only four people came to the funeral. But he lives on, keeping an eye on the pitch at Stamford Bridge.
