Major Player Announcement Tomorrow

The Fire have issued a release promising a "major player announcement" tomorrow.  I'm not sure yet if it's a new addition or an announcement regarding a current player's status. 

I'm guessing the press conference hasn't been called to announce the signing of Bratislav Ristic.

  • Demerit

  • In reply to Chow:

    Demerit would be great and he's also available as a free transfer.

  • In reply to Chow:

    I'm thinking either DeMerit -- seeing as how the transfer window just closed -- or maybe they signed Conde to a new deal?

  • In reply to notabbott:

    The second guess is a possibility. I know how happy you would be about that. ;)

  • In reply to notabbott:

    yeah i was thinking its probly conde re-signed

  • In reply to notabbott:

    i hope it's demerit!

  • In reply to Drew:

    while i'm at it, i hope it's demerit AND conde resigning

  • In reply to Drew:

    Maybe, while there introducing Demerit, Conde will pop up in the back of the room and borrow a pen from someone and sign his offer sheet right there. That would be pretty cool.

    Win a trip to LA for Fire v Chivas

    Wow. Day of awesome news. New season ticket packages, big player announcement. If it IS Demerit, always remember that it was me who first posted on this very website how he was free and how awesome it would be if he went to the Fire. Would he count as a DP?

    His name has been tossed around every american soccer blog since the World Cup.

  • In reply to patrickhattrick:

    Seems that the major announcement will involve McBride's retirement.

  • In reply to cesba:

    its a shame he didn't play for chicago during some of his prime years

  • In reply to cesba:

    If that is true you will really need a new banner then 2 and possibly all 3 of the people in it won't be on the fire

  • In reply to lijien:

    I know. It's definitely time for a new one.

  • In reply to lijien:

    Not exactly the major announcement everyone was hoping for but the good news is the Fire have alot of additional cap space available for next season now.

    The timing of the announcement is a bit peculiar however.

  • In reply to cesba:

    definitely not what i was hoping for. but it is time for mcbride to hang up the boots, unfortunately. what a great career though.

  • In reply to Drew:

    Returning USMNT players never stay silent up to the press conference due to the allocations and nonsense required so don't hold your breath.

    My money's on Conde.

  • In reply to notabbott:

    Demerit can still join a club in Europe because he is a free agent - they are not limited by the transfer window. I am guessing that the EPL is waiting for the 25 man rule to settle and then some team might pick him up if there is room on the roster.

  • In reply to notabbott:

    No J.D. to T.P. for the time being. Mack the Knife is hanging up his spikes.

  • I'm also guessing this isn't to announce the much delayed Zinedine Zidane signing from 2006, huh?
