Hmm, good point David. The only issue I would take with there is that Rupert Lowe happened to Saints, and not another club. In the seasons post 2003-04, I wouldn't have wished him on anyone.
In QPR's case, their flaw is impatience. They haven't achieved success in recent years. In RL's case it was incompetence in football appointments, and an almost suicidal attempt to fail. He achieved that, at least.
