DC United edge Fire 2-1

Fire v DC United match preview

What Are They All About? DC United Eliminated. This past weekend the Chicago Fire defeated Bob Bradley’s LAFC at Toyota Park by a score of 3-1. The shock result led to a zero percent mathematical probability of the Fire finishing at the bottom of this year’s MLS regular season standings, avoiding a third wooden spoon in the last four years. The freedom that comes with not having a post-season to play for ensured that Chicago came out of the blocks with a high tempo that had LAFC on the back foot from the starting whistle. An MLS goal of the week-worthy strike from Djordje Mihailovic, a...

Fire upset LAFC

The Fire played one of their best games of the season in a 3-1 victory over Los Angeles FC. It was their first ever contest against the expansion team led by former Fire coach Bob Bradley. LAFC has been one of the top teams in the Western Conference all season but the Fire played the counter very well  took a 2-0 lead into the half on the strength of a 20th minute golazo from Djordje Mihailovic and a 29th minute penalty conversion by Nemanja Nikolic after Brandt Bronico drew slight contact in the box. The Fire took a 3-0 lead in the 66th when Nikolic and Mihailovic combined for another well...

Fire v Los Angeles FC match preview

What Are They All About? LAFC Eliminated. This past Wednesday the Chicago Fire lost on the road to NYCFC at Yankee Stadium. The result, their sixteenth defeat of the season, mathematically assured what had been essentially true since the beginning of the summer, that this side is not a playoff side. A first half that was not aesthetically pleasing but effective in stifling one of the best attacking sides in the league showed promise and the potential for points before some bizarre tactical and personnel choices in the second half ensured defeat within five minutes of the restart. Veljko...

Fire, Revolution play to 2-2 draw

New England's playoff hopes took a big hit after a 2-2 draw at home against the Fire. The visitors played with the same lineup deployed in last week's 4-0 win over Orlando City and held the lead twice despite being outshot 17-8 and losing the possession battle 66-34. Aleksandar Katai forced a 19th minute turnover and converted after a clever push into the box was culminated by a left-footed far post finish for his eleventh goal of the season. Scott Caldwell leveled for New England in the 62nd when he tapped in a shot that was deflected by Brandon Vincent and initially stopped by Richard...

Fire v Revolution match preview

What Are They All About? New England Revolution This past weekend the Chicago Fire ended a month-long hiatus from formal competition with a 4-0 victory over Orlando City, their first league win in ten matches. The rout came against one of the league’s worst teams and Chicago are still twelve points out of a playoff position with just six matches remaining, but there seemed to be a marked improvement in the team’s attitude and performance. Nemanja Nikolic’s thirteenth and fourteenth goals of the season, Aleksandar Katai’s resurgence, and Michael DeLeeuw’s return to the score sheet...
