New QPR owner Tony Fernandes has said that, frustrated by failed attempts to take over at his first love West Ham, he considered buying Charlton: http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard-sport/football/article-23988944-qrrs-new-owner-wont-splash-the-cash-like-roman-abramovich.do
It was cheap and a 'great business deal'. However, his heart was not in it as it was too close to West Ham.
Fernandes is thinking that QPR need a new stadium. But they might share it with someone else. He sees the groundshare between Palace and Charlton as a precedent. Just as well he didn't come to The Valley.
