It will be interesting to find out what happens to Boyd now at Peterborough once their insurers get hold of it because if his still playing next week or next month or next year then WTF as this been all about.

If he has a condition whereby if he was to head a ball and it had a direct result in sending him blind then surely we would have been right in calling the whole thing off.

I don't think we have heard the end of this and Boyd either.

Good article but you missed out that at the end of the 12 hour medical we had the cheek to say

"Do you fancy coming on loan instead ?"

(I am glad peterborough broke this story because if someone like me had come on and said all this I would be laughed off the forum and accused of making it all up)

This is one story you could quite simply not make up

I am trying hard to think of how deadline day could have actually gone any worse for us and I can't come up with anything worse yet ?


Its simple, we are not prepared to offer you a long term contract because we have concerns over you eye problem but you can come on short term loan if you wish.

And I'm delighted to hear that you are happy that Posh disclosed the nature of Boyd's medical problem that should have been confidential and has made him the butt of many a joke and photoshop wizard around the country.

Wolf, you should be thankful that the club was so thorough and have potentially saved the club from making a poor investment.

Have you even considered that this information may not have been disclosed by Boyd? While this is pure conjecture surely that would be enough to scupper the deal?


But fry said Amc still wanted to buy the player?
so have they employed a manager whos judgement they dont trust?

jpforest, further to your comment, what did Alex McLeish say recently about the owners not interfering?

I'm really struggling to find that interview.

I've got more ideas.

McLeish doesn't pull off any signings, despite wanting three in the morning. Why?
Who are these owners anyway and what are their plans?
Why did we hold on to a player until half an hour before the window shut?

They're more questions than articles, but I hope somebody asks them sort of questions over the coming days/weeks.

Yes I'm sure he did, that is why they bid for him but Amc is not paying his wages for the next 3 1/2 years with which there is a potential problem.

AMc is a football manager, not an eye specialist. They went for the player just like he asked, they agreed a deal with the player, just like he asked.

He then failed the medical.

Forest is not desperate, they are not in a relegation battle they are rebuilding. Time is on the clubs side and there is no need to buy players who may, in the future not be able to play at the level required.

I'm actually bring some balance. The only one that would need substantiating is whether the medical problem was disclosed.

The rest is fact!

Maybe he will in due time, why does if have to be now... maybe he is taking legal advice... I doubt he wants to come out and say

George Boyd, blind as a fooking butchers dog ...


Problem is, Peterborough are run by lying, gobby shits who love media attention because that's the only way they can get it. AND people who lap that up are their prime targets ie You... another person who wants to grab attention.

Why not wait for Fawaz before mouthing off? Could you not resist logging on here to gloat?

I've watched Boyd for years and he has never had an eye problem. It's the weakest excuse for not signing someone I've ever heard. If anyone actually believes it they are mental.
As for him not being the quality we need, what a load of rubbish, he is as talented a player as you will find in this league and a model pro to boot. He has been the star player in a very poor team and hits double figures in goals nearly every year, something our midfield haven't done for a long time. He is a much better player than Burke, who everyone has been raving about since we were linked with.
I would much rather have signed him than give Dex a 4.5 year contract if I'm honest!

1 - They need the cash now because he will walk for nowt....
2 - Who says another club wouldn't have picked this up?

Everyone assumes that all other clubs would say.. yeah come here George, take 20k per week no matter what...

Because Forest are not at liberty to disclose the results of Boyd's medical results.
To do so would be a breach of confidentiality between doctor and patient.
Any disclosure could harm Boyd.
I find it disgraceful enough that Posh Chairman took it upon himself to tell everyone while he grabbed the limelight and got his 15 seconds on SKY, beamed around the world.

If you can prove that Alex McLeish is a medical expert and could guarantee the health of Boyd, then id take your view... BUT its not upto McLeish. He might want to sign a 1 legged donkey, would you take that? Or would you take the opinion of medical experts who would say to you... " a 1 legged donkey is better off down the glue factory"

We are not talking about peanuts or a loan deal here.. we are talking about putting 3million quid on our books during the era of FFP.

What can Fawaz possibly say ? The crux of the matter is how serious is the defect ? If its something like Glaucoma or a detached retina then possibly Fawaz was correct in pulling the plug. If however he can't read a newspaper from 500 yards (and who can) then the decision would look suspect. Due to patient confidentiality he can't disclose whether its the former or the latter. Therefore what could he possibly say, that we didn't already know.

I don't wear glasses any more, had the laser treatment years ago. Can see clearly now :)

I remember what a bugger it was trying to see and connect with the high balls whistling through the air when playing evening games though.
