Drove up Yesterday for the match, cracking game. It looked like we were going to play villa, which i think we would have deffo won and made the final, which is a 50/50. Dont fancy Fulham. Although confidence is high and hit a bit of mini form, so you never know.

Glad we (Villa) didn't get Fulham. Hoping it's us two in the final.

I watched the Villa Derby game the other week and confident we could beat you if we played again.

Just over 30,000 at Leeds at the weekend watching two mediocre teams with nothing to play for. Their home support was fantastic given what they've been served up with all season.

Rangers were dreadful.

Did we take many for the 39 a seat? Ridiculous pricing.
Sounds like McLaren is incoming. I think he could do a job with the young uns

Weren’t a cracking game at all really was it? Highlight was the lad crowd surfing in the South Stand!

Hoping to get 3-5m for Mass in the summer, which can be used to subsidise some decent loanees wages.

Not many Rangers there at all which was hardly surprising; our performance was summed up by our ironic 'We've got the ball', 'We've lost the ball' chant throughout the second half.

The bloke crowd surfing was superb, Sumbeam, can't believe he made it to the upper tier Laughing out loud

Met him on Sunday, such a nice bloke and I got the impression (as far as you can do with someone in his position) that he knew the writing was on the wall (probably even prior to the game).

McClaren though? Nah, I ain't having it. Would prefer for Oily to be given more time. He's done exactly what was asked of him by cutting the wage bill, bringing on younger members of the squad and keeping us in the Champ; it ain't been pretty but it's been a big ask.

Bricking it for tomorrow, not entirely confident with our records in play offs, lost previous 7 semi finals not even making the final, hoping that ends in these upcoming two games though, but going in a bit pessimistic. Rather lose in our final league game to end the unbeaten run then in the play offs, get it out the system. Come on Fulham!

McLaren much better suited to push on from this season. Has been a mixed bag but would be far more comfortable and confident with him than Holloway and Bircham. I’m not sure McLaren is the best option either but imho better than Holloway and I’m sure there are many better options than Bircham. I’m not onboard with having people in the job just because they are ‘Rangers’ I want the best regardless of who they played for or support.

McLaren is such a good coach. Didn't quite work out with us, but he is deffo worth a punt.

You've not lost anything. The greatest rule of the Playoffs is that the away goal doesn't count double.

Yeah i know, i hate the away goals rule anyway, should be abolished. You don't know Fulham though, we've never ever won a play off game, like ever, we played tonight the same way we played against Reading in last years play offs. Haven't learnt much by the looks of it. I know its only one goal in it, but even if we were to make it to Wembley i can see us bottling it as we always cave in when it counts
