The Fire now have 23 officially "signed" players on the roster after announcing the signing of 6-2" Croatian midfielder Marko Maric. Described as a box to box player who can fill an enforcer role if needed, Maric is the sixth international on the roster. The other five are Pappa, Ristic, Mikulic, Chaves, and Puerari. The Fire have two international spots remaining.
Posada to Attend Section 8's March Meeting
Fire President Julian Posada is scheduled to attend tonight's Section 8 Monthly Board Meeting at the Abbey Pub in Chicago. Posada will field questions for about 30 minutes.
I'd be curious to hear his thoughts on why something like this is possible in Houston but not in Chicago.
