The Chicago Fire had a superb opportunity to grab three very valuable away points on Sunday night, but failed to find a way to break down a closely packed Orlando City defense and had to settle for a share of the spoils after a 0:0 draw. The home side went down to ten men when Rafael Ramos was sent off in the 26th minute after a clash with Brandon Vincent.

The Chicago Fire won't win awards for stylish soccer after their first two matches of the 2017 campaign, but there are plenty of indications that they are on the right path. Their 2:0 win on Saturday over Real Salt Lake at Toyota Park was built on pragmatism, hard work, and taking advantage of opportunity.

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. –For as much as the Chicago Fire struggled to get traction going forward in a scoreless home draw against the Columbus Crew on Saturday, head coach Veljko Paunović was pleased with what he saw from his defense.

Near the end of his post-match press conference, talking about his team's growth through three games, his voice intensified.

There are times in a soccer match when scoring a goal can destroy the motivation for an opponent to mount a comeback. The New England Revolution were that team on Saturday shortly after Luis Solignac put the visiting Fire 2:0 up in the 61st minute. It was the kind of authoritative strike that resulted in the Revs looking like they were ready to pack it in.

Both the Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew come into 2017 looking to turn a page and forget about their respective dismal 2016 campaigns. They squared off on Saturday at MAPFRE Stadium in the season opener on a chilly afternoon and battled to a 1:1 draw. Based on the soccer on display it's unlikely that either side learned much about whether 2017 will bring more joy than 2016 did, but both teams have a lot of work ahead if they want to be competitive.

Less than a year ago I sat at the SuperDraft in the media pit watching the madness unfold. The Chicago Fire had just picked Jack Harrison, only to trade him to New York City FC for the fourth pick in the draft.

Brandon Vincent was getting on a plane to the MLS Combine with Stanford teammate Eric Verso on Wednesday when the roster for the U.S. Men's National Team's annual winter camp came out.

Fire 2 Timbers 2 - recap and ratings

Without Dax McCarty and Bastian Schweinsteiger, the Fire didn't enjoy the possession and midfield control that they've exerted over the last two months but they still managed to come away with a hard-earned point in a difficult place to play. The Portland Timbers were able to get more looks on goal and found more space in the middle of the pitch without the Fire's first choice central pairing available, and yet Chicago was still able to head into the final twenty minutes of the match with a lead.
