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
