Article in the Times today suggesting that QPR are planning a replacement for Loftus Road somewhere around the White City area:
-36000 seats, almost double that of Loftus Road
-Retractable roof for use as a concert venue
-£180 million pre-evaluative cost
-Part of a bid to make QPR " A global brand"
Also confirmed on twitter by chairman Tony Fernandes yesterday with plans to fully publicize the proposal on Monday, according to the twitter statements it would appear the club has already drawn up plans/ renders.

Here is another link an uninformative article backing up the suggestion that this is in development http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/fernandes-reveals-qpr-stadium-progress-155231342.html

They can buy into United for me, would never want Wednesday turning into some rich guys play thing. To be seen as a team buying success it doesn't deserve e.g. Chelsea and Man City I'd hate it as it's slowly destroying the heart and soul of the beautiful game. Yes it adds excitement and brings better players to the English game but it's ruining it's history.

I think it will be good for QPR to get a bigger ground to help them develop as a club just hope they'd do it gradually and not go and splash ridiculous money on players for a club of their stature.
Buying a west London Football club seems a bit unimaginative plus that part of London is not short of clubs trying to attract fans. Pity he didn't buy one of the clubs in Nottingham, Bristol or Sheffield. Much bigger potential for expansion and at least have a city name to promote worldwide than a small area of one city.
