Fernandes: why I didn't buy Charlton

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.
