EP or Madstad?

by Rob-Royal » 02 Oct 2011 20:14

Next year will be 28 years since I went to my first Reading game and it got me thinking that it will also be equal 14 years a piece between Elm Park & The Madejski....

So, which is longer for you...?

MadStad all the way. Why anyone thinks it's a good idea to stand for 2hours is beyond me and the leg-room's second to none.

Elm Park: 1987-1998 (11 years)
Madstad: 1998 - Present (13 years)

In terms of number of games attended during those periods the Madstad wins by a landslide.

Shocking as it may seem they did have seats at EP but in those days we were allowed to make our own minds up and funnily enough it was never really too much of a hardship to stand for 45 mins at a time.

IMHO terracing over seats - it generated a better atmosphere as all the vocal supporters could group together. Also back then the club was more open and welcoming rather than today's corporate RFC. You almost had the feeling that if you took your boots along you might just get a game.

tbh i didn't bother reading the OP - so i too presumed it was which did you prefer...

But as for "longer" then its EP (if you take my first ever game) for me......

1984 - 1998 = 14 years
1998 - 2011 = 13 years
