George Boyd

George Boyd has  joined Nottingham Forest on an emergency loan deal until the end of the season. (http://www.theposh.com/page/NewsDetail/0,,10427~1981773,00.html )

The loan involves a fee, that has not been disclosed, and it is likely that Boyd will be a Nottingham Forest player at the end of the season as the two clubs are believed to have agreed a fee for the winger.

Boyd has made himself a Posh legend since signing from Stevenage Borough in 2007. His performances on the left wing have shown great skill, technique and composure on the ball and many Peterborough fans believe that Boyd is the greatest player to ever play for ‘The Posh’.

Boyd made 144 consecutive starts in a Peterborough shirt smashing the previous record whilst scoring 36 goals in the process this has lead to him being adopting the nickname of ‘The White Pele’ at London Road.

Mark Little

Mark Little has joined ‘The Posh’ on an emergency loan deal until the end of the season. The 21 year old right back joins from Wolverhampton Wanderers where he has made 27 times for the first team. (http://www.theposh.com/page/NewsDetail/0,,10427~1981862,00.html )

Little has been out on loan three times prior to his move to Peterborough; twice to Northampton Town and once, earlier this season, to Chesterfield.

Little has a combined total of 57 senior appearances in his career so far and has played 6 times for the England U19 squad however he is yet to score a goal in professional football.

Jake Livermore

Tottenham Hotspur have recalled Jake Livermore from his loan spell at Peterborough due to a number of injuries to midfield players in their first team squad. (http://www.theposh.com/page/NewsDetail/0,,10427~1981436,00.html)

Livermore was enjoying a successful loan period at Peterborough where he had started every game since joining. In his 8 starts he scored 1 goal for ‘The Posh’ at Sheffield Wednesday. His series of impressive performances, often being a big presence in the Posh midfield, has meant the young English midfielder had endeared himself to the London Road faithful.

Darragh MacAnthony

I am delighted to announce that Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has agreed to take part in a question and answer session right here at http://posh.footballblog.co.uk/.

This is obviously major news for the blog having such a key figure within Peterborough agreeing to take part in a Q+A session and I would like to thank Darragh for agreeing to participate.

If you have any questions you would like to put towards the Peterborough United chairman please leave them below.

I cannot guarantee that every question will be asked by George (Co-Writer) and I but we will do our best to ask as many questions as possible.

    Me again nice to see another article from you.

    Mark Little was on loan to Northampton if I record, and has also been at another League 2 club, big step to be honest. League 2 football for the past two seasons, couldn’t break into the Wolves squad and now at Championship, Peterborough. What has happened to Kerrea Gilbert has he played for you yet, because he was on loan at Leicester last season?

    Also Jake Livermore see Spurs have recalled him, in the pre-season friendlies he seemed a class act scoring against Barcelona was it. Then he went on loan to Derby, and I seen him at the Walkers, did okay but not the best.

    And lastly another interview lined up, with your chairman that is brilliant for you. If you can get a good number of questions together, you could really make the interview an interesting one.

    Good luck

    I have to say I also feel the transfer is an odd one as Gilbert is already at the club. Having said this Gilbert hasn’t looked able to cope in the Championship since his arrival, although we have only seen him briefly after he picked up an injury.

    I am really dissapointed that Livermore has returned back to Spurs as he looked a very useful player for Posh in his time here.

    I am absolutley delighted with Darragh for doing a Q+A with the blog, it is absolutley tremendous news!

    More news now John, and now I am shocked.

    Forest wanting loan deals, heard that on east midlands today last night, but brining in George Boyd is a bit of a shock.

    Why have you let him go, in my view he is one of your prize assets.

    Just so disappointed about Boyd’s departure, he has been at the heart of everything good we do as a team and is a top class player.

    It’s a good move for Boyd as Forest are chasing promotion even if your team did batter them at the weekend.

    I expect George to play at the highest level in his career and he may well do so with Forest so it’s a good move for him.

    Yes John Boyd leaving is disappointing but the club need to capatalise on the talent they have. His stock is probably as high as it will get at Posh and we can reinvest, if dmac allows, the money we should make on him.

    at the end of the day football is always about players moving and bettering themselves. We should be thankful for the memories and spark that George has brought to Posh.

    Good luck George Forest are lucky to have you.
