John, last year's top scorer and last week's MLS player of the week has found himself once again in the cold when it comes to being picked for the MLS All Star game.
John considered to be one of the best forwards in the United States and Ancil Elcock one of the best defenders were left off the ballots and can only get a reprieve if they are picked as reserves.
Last week the MLS allowed fans to post questions to Stern John. Here are his answers.
Ince on trials in UK.
Ince's resume is very impressive. He represented Trinidad and Tobago in the 1991 World Youth championship. He has been voted best Caribbean goalie for the last three years in a row. Two years ago he was supposed to join Wrexham in the English Second division. However, due to work permit restrictions he was unable to join the team.
Chelsea may be his first choice but recently there has been a backlash against the amount of foreign players at the London based club. Keep your fingers crossed.

Stern John waited till late in Columbus' encounter with San Jose. John shocked the Clash when he ran onto the ball in the penalty area, then chipped it out of the reach of Clash goalkeeper Joe Cannon with three seconds remaining.
It was John's cousin and national teammate Ansil Elcock that first put Columbus on the board. That goal was in the 37th minute. With the Crew down 2-1 in the 79th minute John scored the tying goal. However, the Clash bounced back four minutes later to take a one goal lead. It was then left to John to force a shoot-out with a goal three seconds from time.
In the extra time session John and teammate Warzycha scored while San Jose could only manage one goal and Columbus won the game 2-1.
