Well done lads, hanging onnwith grit and determination. I suppose the ref had to send Dieng off but you could have made the same point about the Brentford player earlier in the season and he bloody well didn't semd him off.

Well done Rangers. Great result.

Well done Dykes - involved in both goals. He's turned a corner I think.

Forgot about the early start :oops: That sounds like a fantastic effort by all especially the defence. Big shout for Joe, who did well when he replaced Seny. What a "Jekyll and Hyde" team we are". 8)

Another impressive away win, especially after going down to ten men. Two excellent saves by Lumley when he came on, which was good to see.

Would finishing the season with a positive goal difference be too much to ask for ?

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

From the 'boro match thread...
"Wish Warnock would **** off. Can’t take another season of the same shocking ‘football’. We haven’t even had a kick for 15 minutes at home to QPR and it’s the same story every week. "

There is something to be said for a bit of stability at the club. Hopefully we won't be seeing Albert for the next few seasons on here.
*Edit. This isn't ill wishing him, as I honestly hope he is in good health. It's the unremitting criticism of the club I don't miss.

Good to see Joe play well when asked....

Feeling relaxed watching the season wind down and hopefully we can all now look forward to attending matches again in August....

Cmon Rangers do us proud and keep us in the top 10' and a positive goal difference to finish the season please....
2020/2021.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....

Superb result.

As Ux says, a positive GD and hopefully a top half finish would be huge achievements and a real sign of progress and along with the perfomances of young players both ones we've developed and brought in from leagues above and below us; we're hopefully becoming quite a compelling option within ou budget in the market.

Agreed, i hope it's our sparkling form keeping him off the boards, has anyone messaged him?

It's a good job there's nothing hanging on this season with Austin & Dieng banned.
I'm not sure we've missed Austin, which is a great thing to be able to say, his ban is up now, right and Dieng will only get one game?

Definitely good to see Joe get a run - pretty we couldn't persuade him to stay and vie with Seny for the number 1 slot. Whatever the views have been in the past, he clearly has an affection for the club.

Great to see Lee Wallace get on the scores heel and can he manage another season?

Will be interested to hear how people thought George Thomas played.

Two assists from Dykes as well - hope he keeps his berth in the team despite Charlie coming back off suspension.

Both Charlie and Johansen possibly kick started our climb to safety but realistically we won't see either at QPR next season on loan or permanent....

We'll have a turn over of players leaving like we usually do ..... Cameron springs to mind and possibly Wallace (like him to get another season at least).

Dykes confidence is back and it's great having a striker (we own) in double figures for the first time in how long?

The problem we have is every player has his (inflated) sale price and even Dykes could be worth quite a few quid above the reported £2M we paid for him if his form continues into the Euros for Scotland, same goes for Dickie and Seny.....

I'd love to keep this squad together with some judicious buys in key areas to push on but balancing the books and the club's future feels more important to me....
