As a tribute to the beloved 80′s comedyFerris Bueller's Day Off, MLS and KickTV have released their own version staring the reigning MLS MVP and Chicago Fire's Mike Magee in "One Player's Struggle to Take it Easy" featuring an all-star group of America's best MLS players including Omar Gonzalez, Thierry Henry, Hope Solo, Sydney Leroux and Michael Bradley.
The Chicago Fire added a new piece to their midfield that they hold can bring some more stability to the club.
The Fire announced on Monday that they had signed Romanian international Razvan Cocis fromUkrainian club FC Hozerla Uzhhorod. Per MLS and team policy, terms of the transfer and contract were not disclosed.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – An early strike from Quincy Amarikwa marked the difference as the Chicago Fire topped the New England Revolution 1-0 on Saturday night in Foxboro.
A turnover by the New England Revolution, combined with a chipped through ball from Mike Magee gave Amarikwa a breakaway chance in the third minute which he didn't miss, and which turned out to be the only goal in the match.
The Chicago Fire might still be near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings, but Frank Yallop's men have started to show signs of life lately.
A positive stretch for the Fire continued Saturday night at Gillette Stadium as a third-minute display of physical prowess by Quincy Amarikwa, who shrugged off the rugged Andrew Farrell to score a third minute winner in a 1-0 road victory over the reeling New England Revolution.
After nabbing the ball from a dilly-dallying Chicago Fire defender and slotting his shot past the 'keeper to open the scoring, Sporting KC forward Dom Dwyer went and got himself booked during his celebration though not for any of the usual heinous post-goal crimes; removing one's shirt, leaping into the front row, etc, etc.
On a World Cup rest day, Major League Soccer continued, with the defending champions returning home to take on the Chicago Fire. In hot and humid conditions, neither team was able to find the final breakthrough as both sides settled for a 1-1 draw. Sporting KC's Dom Dwyer scored the opener in the 33rd minute when he took advantage of a poor mistake by Patrick Ianni and finished one-on-one with Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The temperature and humidity in Kansas City skyrocketed Sunday afternoon, and the action on the field between Sporting Kansas City and the Chicago Fire could only keep up for so long.
Forwards Dom Dwyer and Mike Magee scored for their respective teams in the first half as the two sides played to a 1-1 draw in front of 20,585 fans at a sticky Sporting Park.
T.J. Zaremba breaks down the Fire's train wreck in San Jose...
After much deliberation since the final whistle of the Fire's 5-1 defeat at San Jose on Wednesday night, I concluded that a train wreck was a better description than a dumpster fire (and I used the dumpster fire after the Columbus road fiasco in May).

T.J. Zaremba dissectsanother one point pick up for the Fire.
On the surface, the Chicago Fire tying another game is not news worthy. After all, they are the "Kings of the Draw".
But, considering Sporting KC is number two in the East, did not have a midweek game, returned US International Graham Zusi to their 18and were in front of their fans at Sporting Park, I conclude the Fire took a point instead of dropping two.
One Point! Of course we always get one point! (chicago-fire.com)
T.J. Zarembatries to find somethingto take away from another lackluster Chicago Fire draw...
After a gritty win on the road last Saturday in Foxboro, Massachusetts, the Fire returned to their "Kings of the Draw" form on Saturday night with another uninspiring performance against the Philadelphia Union.
A last minute penalty saved the Union from disappointment as Le Toux's shot stole the Union a point in Toyota Park.
Playing their third game in eight days, the Philadelphia Union played like it Saturday night at Toyota Park. But thanks to a controversial late penalty call, the Union managed a 1-1 draw in a crucial road match that all things considered will have them sleeping well at night.
After a solid weeknight win against their rivals from New Jersey, the Union now head out to Chicago to take on the Fire. The Union snatched a draw from the jaws of victory the last time they were out there - can they put together another solid 90 minute performance or will we see more points slip through our fingers?
Listen children, all is not lost, all is not lost, oh no, no
For the 2nd time this season the Philadelphia Union travel to Toyota Park to take on the Chicago Fire (8:30 EST, CSN Philly, MLS Live). People will be dancing and smiling and men will be selling ice cream. Those of you that are old enough or old school enough to know the song reference can dig it.
Last week at home against the Chicago Fire was the midpoint of the season for Sporting KC. They currently sit on 26 points, second place in the Eastern Conference, 2 points behind leaders, DC United. That's the same number of points that the team had last year at this point of the season as well. With the half way point hit, here is a look at player grades for the first half of the 2014 season.
The Chicago Fire is just not a team that Sporting KC really likes to face, especially at home. Since 2008 Sporting KC is 1-2-5 at home against the Fire. And today at Sporting Park once again Kansas City and Chicago played to a draw. This time a 1-1 draw on national TV as both teams capitalized on defensive mistakes to each take a point.
