The Fire is sticking with the party line and telling me that the contract status of on-trial forward Collins John is still up in the air. The Fire will continue to look at the former Fulham striker until the end of preseason, at which time they will make a decision on whether or not to offer him a contract. So, we'll just have to wait until the Fire gets back to Chicago before we know if John will be sticking around for 2010. As of right now, I think he will be.
John: Still in trial period
I'll be back later in the day with a Match of the Week post.
