Okay cool. Hopefully Trabzonspor's appeal fails, and Beşiktaş can progress through UCL qualifying to the real thing.

Always interesting to see a 'Kiwi' in the UCL. Would be 2nd Nix alumni after Singh.


Just an update on this - CAS rejected Trabzonspor's appeal, so Besiktas will enter the Champions League qualifying rounds in the non-champions pathway.

Beşiktaş have drawn Greek side PAOK, in UCL 2nd qualifying round.

Looks a single leg only knock out fixture, hosted by PAOK, next week 25th August.

Loser to enter the 2020–21 UEFA Europa League third qualifying round (Main Path).

Subbed at HT (only sub made) with Beşiktaş 3-1 down against Greek side PAOK, in UCL 2nd qualifying round knockout tie.

Same score still at 70 mins, so Beşiktaş look like going out early and into the Europa League third qualifying round (Main Path).

Boyd with his sleeve tatts scores, as Beşiktaş (3rd last season) begin their new campaign with a 3-1 win at Trabzonspor (2nd last season).

A very nice strike. He was subbed off at 81 mins with Beşiktaş 3-0 up.

great shot, defender gets a head to it, which, if anythign lifts the ball but certainly doesnt bend it towards goal - was always going in

Looks like Boyd has finally settled into his new club. He took a while and took plenty of flack from the clubs supporters but he has come good. Will be interesting to follow his progress this season with the USA.

Game before a qualifier against PAOK he was subbed off at HT. I imagine Turkish football supporters to be a pretty volatile lot. As a player you would need a thick skin. One minute the rooster, next just a feather duster. 

But yeah hopefully that mooted Euro AWs v Euro USA happens. That would be interesting.

Subbed at 84 mins as Beşiktaş get a 4-1 spanking at Konyaspor. Score 4-0 when he came off.

Boyd and his team mates probably a bit tired and on a down, after losing midweek on pens (after ET) in the Europe League, to Pjinaker's Rio Ave.

Boyd has a legal contract for another few years. They can only get rid of him by finding another club who will buy him....and most Western Europe clubs have closed their transfer window or they could pay him out of his contract. Which would be very expensive.

I think this is more about clubs feeling the economic strain due to Covid. Clubs all over Europe are really hurting. No crowd revenue, no season ticket sales, no hospitality revenue, huge drop off in merchandise sales and lower sponsorship. It’s the perfect storm. Add to problem is that broadcasters are in trouble as well and in some countries are wanting to renegotiate the broadcasting arrangements. Boyd is an expensive import so it’s not surprising they may want him out.

Be interesting to know if he wasn't picked for those Euro based USA friendlies in March, or if he wasn't available.
