Only lasted 2 seasons at the Madstad before getting bored with it so it's EP for me.

Had to vote equal.....many happy memories from the final decade at Elm Park....but as a slightly larger amount of my time as a Reading fan has been at the Mad Stad, I can't just ignore it.

Not sure this is a genuine poll as it is a statement of fact rather than opinon but fwiw -

Elm Park - 1979 - 1997 (19 seasons) - but only about 200 games attended as my youth was largely mis-spent elsewhere early on.
Madejski Stadium - 1998 - 2010 (13 seasons) - 300+ games as a sth

So got to be the mad stad

(Difficult to compare the 2 but EP for me is a bit like my first car - fondly remembered but I would not want to drive it these days, whereas the Madejski might have less character at the moment but is a lot more reliable/comfortable.)

it wasn't meant as a comparison or a preference between the 2 - merely trying to ascertain where % of nobbers spent longer.....

If I was a betting man then would have had The Mad as being a higher proportion

My first car was like anal sex, I didn't really want it but my uncle gave it to me anyway!

Essentially does more than half of match attending fanbase change every decade or so.

I'd be inclined to agree with you.
