  1. For the past 25 years of going to Reading games, I've been fortunate to experience the club grow massively. From 6/7,000 a game at Elm Park to 24,000 in the prem at a new ground. In that 25 years, I've witnessed 4 promotions (3 of them as champions, including a record breaking points total for the championship) 6 failed play off campaigns out of 6 attempts ,( the first one we had finished 2nd, but only 2 teams went up to the premier league as they were reducing the amount of clubs from 22 to 20) twice finished 7th on last game of season missing out on play offs, a season that we were in the relegation zone at Christmas and finished 8th, 3 relegations, an FA Cup Semi Final, 2 FA Cup Quarter Finals, and 4 owners. Random matches include losing 7-5 to Arsenal in the Leauge Cup after being 4-1 up at half time, losing 7-4 to Portsmouth and setting the highest scoring game in premier league history, and a 6-4 defeat to spurs. Mostly really been 7 or 8 forgettable seasons, so there's always been something going on for the most part, especially since all the history before that consisted of a sole Simod Cup win and 3/4th tier obscurity for 100 years. Bad omen is in 1988, 1998 and 2008 we have been relegated, and this season could end up that way too

    Pretty stoked, I picked out Saints about 10 years back as my adopted team. Squeeky bum time now though

    No team worth their salt shouldloose to Reading at home this season. We have no strikers and we are shite

    Non league day meant I paid Maidenhead Utd a visit for their game against localish Aldershot. Big crowd. Good to see 2,500 for a team fresh out of the conference south. Atmosphere was pretty much the sizeable Shots away fans vs the Reading fans out on a jolly
  7. The England thread

    I haven't even bothered nor noticed our entire qualification campaign. Im a Reading fan though, so I'm used to apathetic (auto correct changed that to pathetic, should of kept that instead) support
  8. What music are you listening to?

    Blasting Ghost all morning. I love how they don't have a set sound, apart from the cracking melodies

    0/4 play off final record. 4/4 times I've had heartache. we were bloody dire though. Sorry to anyone who watched what will go down in history as probably the worst play off final so far.

    Up in the nosebleeds for the play off final, as I'm not a current season ticket fan. We've sold a fair chunk of the tickets it looks like as I only had that option
