Well, the night is here. Fire. Crew. That yellow team. In Toyota Park. Hate juices flowing. It's time to get down to business folks
As the saying goes, "better late than never". For those of you that look forward to the weekly Fireside Chat, I apologize for the delay. But, it's here now and that is what matters
MLS has just announced a revolutionary loan system for the league. While time will tell how smoothly this works, it's certainly an asset the Fire could have used in recent seasons
And the bad news keeps rolling in for Fire fans. At this point in the season it has been one cruel blow after another. And the latest player affected (again) is our beloved German International
For the second week in a row, the Fire feature in a mid Sunday afternoon game. Hopefully the end result is the same around 6 PM this Sunday as it was last Sunday. The task is quite a bit more daunting this week in Houston though
The Fire are coming off a confidence building (and relief inspiring) win over New York. Their next opponent is always a tough customer, but that is even more true in the impenetrable fortress that is BBVA Compass Stadium
A bit of a depleted Fire side will take on the Red Bulls today in what is really a desperation game. It's odd to be saying that in early April but it's also the truth
After an off week that saw mixed results in terms of players getting fit for the game Sunday, the Fire will try to put their fresh legs to use against a very good New York team.
The Chicago Fire are once again set to host their 3rd annual celebration of two beautiful creations: art, and the game of soccer. The best part is that local Chicagoland area artists can be a part of it
While the Fire have struggled through the off week stewing on the fact we have yet to notch a win, there is one nice positive from being idle. A team that has already been hit hard by injuries will finally get some healthy bodies back to face NY
The loan that we all assumed would go through has finally been made official by the Fire front office
While the Fire have the week off and the news mill is churning slower, the club announced a new program aimed at helping youth in the Chicagoland area both with the game of soccer and also in the classroom
The Goats roll into Chicago on a cold day with a bit of snow sprinkled in the forecast. While these are never ideal soccer conditions, the Men in Red hope today sees the first Chicago win of the season.
The Fire notched their first point of the season last week at KC. The Men in Red will now look for their first win and goal(s) of 2013. The forecast calls for chilly temps and a chance of snow. Hopefully this will help the fire get going
While our own Dili Yang normally does these types of reviews, I was in Chicago last weekend and decided to go to both bars on the same day.
The Fire stopper is still on the USMNT radar ahead of Bill Hamid in the 3rd GK roster spot. Although he still has a couple of guys in front of him, the continued confidence he is getting from the selections can only be a good thing
The struggling Fire offense won't get any favors this week as they travel to KC to face a tough defense. The midfield is going to need to step it up big time, and we will need to spring some counters as well to get the offense going
With the Fire sitting at 0-2 heading into Kansas City, fans are starting to squirm in their seats and it's not even April yet. While it's a bit early to push the panic button, the team needs to figure it out quickly as we can't afford to dig ourselve
The Fire will be in prime time tonight as they look to notch their first points of the season against a familiar (and hated) foe. The Men in Red certainly will have added motivation after last week, but will need to find a way to win without Arne Fri
Although the weather will be a bit chilly Saturday night for the home opener in Chicago, warm yourself up before then beside the Fire with our latest chat
HTIOT will be trying something different this week, using the story stream feature that we did for the SuperDraft. Rather than having multiple article in various places to find, everything relating to the coming week's game (Fireside Chats, previews
