"I won't be going, but really do think that random inflatables day needs to stay the last away day of the season.
It's a tradition and it helps those fans we have who don't read HNA to get involved without any confusion.
Once you start complicating things the end result is less inflatables".
I am a 19 year old Reading supporter and I am writing to complain at your absolutely horrific ticket prices for away fans. I found out today that prices for away fans for the upcoming West Ham vs Reading fixture will be £26 for under 16's and £49 for Adults.
I was incensed. How you can justify charging someone my age that amount of money is beyond me. I am a student and cannot afford to pay these sorts of prices. It's simply a massive rip off and it's a disgrace that you feel you can charge these prices for people of any age and not have a very guilty conscience.
I paid £20 for a ticket to Arsenal. There I experienced a far, far, superior stadium to Upton Park in every possible way - comfort, space, cleanliness, service, everything. I also saw Reading play a far higher standard of player than is present in the West Ham team. And yet to visit Upton Park, where, on my last visit, I was threatened outside the ground, showered with coins from the tier above, and stepped in a massive puddle of urine from the overflowing toilets, I am expected to pay £30 more.
Quite frankly you are a shambles of a club. I've travelled to over half of the away games this season but have been priced out of this one thanks to your horrendous pricing. My season ticket cost me £250. I'm not paying a fifth of that for one away game.
I hope you suffer relegation next season and then administration and liquidation if this is how you treat the lifeblood of the game. The way you have cheated your way into the top flight through excessive spending and racking up huge debts which will not be paid is shocking as well.

Wishing our club relegation, Administration and liquidation and total fabrications on our debts is not the best way to get a response but please find the following information below.
The last game of the season here at the Boleyn Ground has always been category A this is due to the players doing a lap of honour at the end of the game for the players to thank the supporters for the excellent support they have provided throughout the season and obviously to celebrate a very successful season back in the premier league. Unfortunately Reading has fallen into this category this season.
Usually it would be a category B fixture and if Reading had retained its premier league status it would be a B fixture next season as long as it didn’t fall on the last day.
I have to add when West Ham visited Reading this season we were charged £40 for the game, so with this in mind there is not much difference in fact if you was playing at the Boleyn Ground this Saturday as Newcastle are we would be charging £36 which is cheaper than your ticket pricing.
We have sold out our seats for the Reading fixture and have sold out the last 16 home games at the stadium. This would suggest that our pricing is competitive and we are on the whole one the cheapest London venues.
I hope this information helps and if you have any other mature questions please do not hesitate to ask, unfortunately we will not answer any further insulting or slanderous emails
