Championship Letters 8: George Boyd as D’Artagnan

Posted by on Mar 8, 2010 in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

A swashbucking display in Forest’s vital 1-0 win over Swansea on Saturday will have immediately endeared him to the East Midlands faithful. Rumours of a fall out with the hard nosed Jim Gannon hastened Boyd’s departure from Peterborough and his confident debut will enhance his chances of a permanent arrangement. My fellow blogger Nick P called for the man of Kent to shear his barnet in a recent comment, but the D’Artagnan factor does a lot to help the energetic front man gain notice.
