Chris Wright INterview yesterday 13:18 - Mar 20 with 2201 viewsTGRRRSSS

In Sunday Times Business section he was the interviewee.

Apparently worth 70mill - in downtime goes to Wasps and Man City.

QPR gets some mention - like the money he claimed to lose ( no mention of Acton etc)

Apparently he asked about going but the club weren't overly responsive - maybe he wanted C Club or something, sure he could get a ticket in Ellerslie somewhere - or behind the goal - where he didn't buy that land...

Nothing will ever convince me that he made a loss out of QPR and Wasps, in fact the complete opposite. Screwed us into the ground and tried to make out that he was taking a 50% haircut on the debt to get us out of administration. He bolloxed the whole thing up in the first place, first with the flotation and then allowing Houston to spend on players we didn't need. At least TF and Co have accepted their mistakes and covered the losses and I would suggest that TF has taken far more abuse than the season ticket that was lobbed at Wright.

It's hard to see how Chris Wright didn't make a loss from his QPR venture.

Just because you don't like the guy doesn't mean he didn't lose money!

Chris Wright was actually quite a fan of this little club of ours -- he even had the club badge / colours tiled into his swimming pool

A bit of an odd charecter. Another wedged up fella who didn't seem very sharp when it came to sport and the business of football.

I think he got out with most of what he wanted and wouldn't of suffered losses really.
Dont forget two land sales involved here which he did quote well out of.

Good interview with Wright that QPRnet did a few years ago.

His biggest mistake was not being hands on every day. He delegated everything and sat in his empire offices just up the road by Latimer Road station. He spent more time there with businesses that more or less run themselves than he did at Loftus Rd. Those he delegated the business to c0cked everything up starting with putting about 10 youth players on 5 year contracts when the average first teamer got 3 year contracts. That was just the tip of a massive iceberg.

I'd think that the £8m he made selling Wasps' old ground in Sudbury to property developers more than made up anything he was out of pocket on QPR. Also he bought (through Loftus Road plc) our old training ground in Acton for a million. How much must that be worth now (assuming he still owns it and didn't sell that for a fat profit?).

He says in the QPRnet interview he bought the Acton ground for the club (with his money as debt) for half a million and then bought it for Wasps for two million, so that's two and a half million down. And it's not really reasonable to claim that any money he might have made from Wasps he made from QPR.

So he became a fan of QPR after a night on the tiles?

Bloke makes millions using canny business skills. Said bloke buys a football club and makes a complete and utter horse's arse of everything.

At what point do these blokes disengage their brains and go off the sensible reservation?

Utter clowns!

It is extremely difficult to apply sound business practice to the emotional subject that is football.

I remember that interview from a few years ago - some of it is quite interesting, but it is - perhaps understandably I guess - quite easy on Wright - even though they give the tougher questions a bit of a go they don't really probe, or pounce hard on his at times slightly contradictory answers.

There is certainly a lot of almost got it moments, but the fact is he did so much damage that many things in many ways echoed right through to the Briatore takeover more or less.

He has the sense to see that the success Wasps had in that time was a bit of a problem and indeed there was some spikiness between the 2 sets of fans on this site (or where we were then) which threatened to boil over as QPR fans planned a demo at Loftus Road during a wasps game which admittedly never materialised - anyone remember Dallaglio's Chin?

Ironically Wasps later got sold ended up in a mess and moved 70 miles away from High Wycombe where I think Wright moved them.
They are doing well now but I wonder how many of the fans of the London and Bucks era really like heading to Ricoh all the time.

He also plays the mea culpa thing well in so much as he always accepts the blame - but you know wasnt actually him - it was others who he brought in.

Like Berlin and others.
