Boyd explains why he joined Portland and why he skipped on Houston.
He mentions "85 degrees in the middle of January and even the coaches told me the summer was unbearable".
Also, it seems John Spencer charmed with his Scottish accent, plus he is a former Rangers and Chelsea player.
Finally, Spencer is the brother in law of Nottingham Forest's coach, Billy Davies, whom Boyd enjoyed working with during his stint with them.
Nice to know why he passed, though it doesn't change anything. I do not think we pick up any more strikers before the season starts. Maybe we pick up another MLS striker (in the league a few years already) but nobody significant. Dom loves the mid season window. Moffat and Camargo as well as Costly.
