    Missed out on the glory years then !

    Must admit I felt a bit for those Rochdale fans who had to wait 50 years for a promotion!!

    For me ? Too many ! :( ....... Ten each in both directions ?
    Bradford City have just as many ups as downs since 1968. What goes around, comes around, huh ? :)
    Yeah, come November of this year, marks my 50 year 'anniversary' with my Club.

    Four promotions and four relegations

    Relegation to Division 2 in 1994
    Promotion to Division 1 in 1995
    Promotion to Premier League in 2002
    Relegation to Championship in 2006
    Promotion to Premier League in 2007
    Relegation to Championship in 2008
    Promotion to Premier League in 2009
    Relegation to Championship in 2011

    Currently in our longest stint in one division in my lifetime, although we've had three last day escapes from relegation.

    In your lifetime , how many promotions/relegations have you experienced from your club?

    In my now 55 years of age and 49 years as a HSV fan I have experienced zero promotions and 1 relegation (2 weeks ago the unthinkable happened and Germany's only club who never played 2nd tier or lower had to go down. Sad...really sad. Now I can "enjoy" a derby with our red light district club again. **** St.Pauli (literally speaking :D )

    edit: Oops, sorry, just saw that this thread is in the "General British football" section of the "Worldwide Football" forum. My bad.

    Not that many for me really, for most of my life we've been in the top flight and i've seen us get into Europe about the same amount of times as we've been relegated and promoted.

    1 relegation from the top flight
    1 relegation from the second tier
    1 promotion from the third tier
    1 promotion from the second tier.

    0 for me which is a good thing really.Had around 5 years of thinking we would win everything 1984-89 but in terms of going up or down.

    Never ever thought we'd go down even on the 2 times we survived last game of the season either.

    Pretty boring 40 years really.

    up, down
    up, down
    up, down
    down, up

    In what is our 20th season outside the top flight, hopefully we're due another up.

    Three promotions and a billion relegations. Worst one was dropping into non league.
