I've also heard from various sources that the Fire does indeed have interest in Collins John. I asked Frank about this last week and he had no comment at the time. However, I've been told that terms have been agreed to but that the Fire wants to have a face-to-face meeting with John before anything is signed.

We'll see, I hope he doesn't end up sulking next to Justin on the field.

Hmm this is an interesting one. What made the Fire decide, "Hey let's go sign this guy!"?
Good question but my guess is no transfer fee, Premiership experience, Brian McBride has played with him before. I do wonder if it was Frank's idea or McBride was like 'hey, let's get Collins John'

I'm not sure who to compare him to (Wanchope was a lot older, similarly with Akinbiyi at Houston, etc. Junior Agogo was younger and perhaps a lot hungrier.), but I just feel he's the type of signing that hasn't often gone right for the league. I'd love him to prove me wrong, because if he could, we'd have a top striker, but I'm doubtful...
Actually, Swindon have just gone for a similar deal, signing ex-Juventus youngster Vincent Pericard, who had his best years at Portsmouth a while back, and is only 27, but has spent some time on benches and, more importantly, in jail. However, we signed him after he spent six months at struggling Carlisle and did well for them, and after watching him (once) you can see he's got class and can help us, it's just a matter of his attitude...
