Reading chairman John Madejski says QPR have gone about rebuilding the club the wrong way.
Both will go down at the end of this season.
Madejski told the London Evening Standard: "We've built this club brick by brick and we haven't gone for a quick fix. QPR have got all the hallmarks of quick fix or allegedly quick fix."
This saw huge spends by the west London club in the January transfer window: £12.5million on Chris Samba and £8m on Loic Remy.
"Over the years I have come to realise that it doesn't always work out," says the self-made millionaire, who is ranked 777 in this year's Sunday Times Rich List. "You've got a 50/50 chance of them working out when they come to a club and, when you're paying a lot of money, it can be quite an expensive pastime."
