Considering QPR's season so far, losing a player so late in the Deadline Day - without directly replacing them - is never going to be a good thing.
In Leroy Fer's case, however, the R's faithful appear delighted to have lost him.
Indeed, Fer has completed a late loan move to Swansea City, where his creativity will be needed after Jonjo Shelvey's sale to Newcastle United.
But there is little in the way of sympathy or good will from some QPR fans it seems. Firstly, several have joked that Fer will take yet another Premier League club down (he was relegated at both Norwich City and Loftus Road).
Secondly, they feel he simply isn't good enough for the Championship side. Fer has been accused of being lazy and, in QPR's situation, they can ill afford any passengers.
Here's how supporters reacted on Twitter to the 26-year-old's move from west London to Swansea City:
Fer is still making his way to Swansea as quickly as he can. He is now approaching Reading. #QPR— QPRnet (@qprnet) February 1, 2016
Fer going is probably a good thing. Just a shame it's happening a bit too late in the day for any replacements to come in #QPR— Javed Kurmoo (@MJKurmoo) February 1, 2016
