We've heard rumors for several months now regarding the Fire's interest in American midfielder Jeremiah White. It seems the rumors were true. White is now on trial with the team.
2010 Regular Season
Chicago Fire, Jeremiah White
I don't think it's ridiculous at all. Frequent trialists come in at clubs all over the world. Fostering a competitive atmosphere internally is a good thing. If you're a professional athlete that is confidently playing well enough to earn a roster spot you should feel no concern over trialists. Bringing in players for try outs keeps everyone working hard to earn their spots. These guys are big boys.
The big problem defensively, IMO has been Conde not playing up to standards recently. The contract issue has to be addressed and soon.
Conde's contract is up at the end of this season but he is free to negotiate a deal elsewhere on July 1.
Ghana is dangerous but they have not scored a goal from the run of play yet.
Interesting stats. Since we've got such a good, physical goalkeeper, that seems to be to our advantage.

Who says Luis doesn't cover soccer any more?
I had enough of trialist players.....I want designated players discussion with this team. Right now, they are going on the cheap.
when is condes contract up
What an amazing game. Ghana looks pretty dangerous, hopefully we can prove why we won Group C.
