I watched the beginning of the game between spurs and Liverpool, and according to the commentators Liverpool is very thin on strikers, so I wouldn't dough it the they might be interested in Boyd.

As a Liverpool fanatic......we are extremely thin. Suarez and Borini are the only senior players that can play striker...Borini is out till Feb. Yesil and Morgan are the U-21 strikers that have played a few cup games but they are not ready to lead the line in the league. We need to buy two in January without a doubt.

Boyd's a very good talent and I will not lie, I was disappointed when he decided to make a permanent move rather than a loan. I was however impressed by his maturity b doing what he thought was best for his career rather than be one of those players that sit on the bench at a top club hoping they make it one until they hit 27 and realize they wasted half of their career. That's not to say that he wouldn't have made it. I'm no Liverpool fan but I do know that they have striker issues and Brendon Rodgers is all for incorporating youth. If heads the move for
Boyd, I'd be happy but perhaps he should start smaller than EPL. I also would rather he made a summer move which is likely the case seeing as I doubt many people would sign somebody after only six months of first team play.

This is exciting news, but I'm afraid to put stock in it.

IMO he has a good skill set for England (compared, for instance, with Altidore, who should probably stay on the continent). Plus he moves intelligently and would open space for Suarez.

Yep - I'll believe it when I see it. Wouldn't be surprised to see Fenway being the one pushing this deal...if it's true.

While find a great deal of validity in previous comments, keep in mind that Boyd is a German / Ami and product of the Borussia Dortmund youth system. I believe the current arrangement is for a season long loan to Rapid Wien rather than an outright purchase.

If such is the case, Klopp and BvB may well be having him attain experience and seasoning in a lesser league, but upgrade from the 3 Liga (BvB II- Reserves) that he played and scored so many goals in last season. I would much rather see him return to BvB or have a full transfer to a 2. Liga or other Bundesliga side to improve the tactical and technical elements of his game.

The EPL is not the current equal to the Bundesliga. Jürgen is looking for players that possess the disciplined, tactical and technical skills that he is trying to instill in the USMNT set-up. One need only look at the positive impact that Fabian Johnson, Danny Williams and Tim Chandler have made to our team's capabilities. Look at the performances of Steve Cherundolo and how his game has improved and grown his career over the past 12 years in Hannover. Thus, I would much rather see Boyd return to and remain in Germany.

There are more coming down the line like Andrew Wooten (currently with Sandhausen) and current MLS players like Pfeffer that are being encouraged to develop their talents at the highest level. That level is the Deutsches Bundesliga!

I stand corrected. It was a full transfer. Still think it may be a wise choice as long as his current form holds. Likely, he can see another transfer move back to Germany with a smaller club during the Summer tranfer window. Potentially a promoted team or 2. Liga team. I would love to see him join Bobby Wood at my old club TSV 1860 Muenchen as I firmly believe they will be threatning fo promotion next season.

i think both Jozy and Boyd would do better in the championship than in a second tier league anywhere else. QPR and Southampton could def. use strikers as well, unless Liverpool wants to purchase then send out on loan until the end of the season, which i also think would be a good move for them.

Not going to happen. They are not in the financial position to do that right now. What we buy over the January window will be players that will help immediately whether it be the league or depth for Cup games.

Game winner for Boyd and another called off for a ticky tacky foul. Im changing my tune. He needs to move on to a real league like holladn or a mid-low tier bundesliga team (like nuremburg). Our only chance for success in 2014 (making it to at least quaterfinals) is if he can become the target man that jozy, herc, agudelo can't become

I thought people were saying that Rapid is a team that will sell its players to bigger leagues. Hopefully that will happen with Boyd after their season is over. At least he is getting games and producing

Rumors floating around Watford may be interested in Boyd. Can't see Rapid selling while they are involved in Europe, but it could be interesting if they fail to make the group stage.

Watford switch would be a great one, although idk how good their team is in term of creating plays for strikers. We dont want a Altidore in Hull City where he had no service. Besides its in championship and its a good way to move up slowly into EPL.

I think it would be a good move Watford was very close to gaining promotion this year. I think they could definitely gain promotion this year. If this move is on the table I would take it. Unless boyd and his agent believed they could get a move straight to the premership this transfer window. Or to the premiership next summer after he has been involved in europe with Rapid. I rate the championship higher then Austria so it would be a positive move for Boyd. Austria has a couple good teams but then the drop in quality is very dramatic to the next tier of teams.
