Game Recap


What's Happened To C+C Goal Factory?

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
Full game recap coming, but a post-game discussion got me to do some research. Namely people were asking why Pareja seemed to be unwilling to play Casey and Cummings at the same time. I wondered how much of that was by choice and how much was due to injury so I looked it up.

Only 9 times this season have they both been Probable on the injury report or better, and in each of those games at least one of them was listed as Probable, so they've never been completely healthy (Casey has been on the injury report every game this season).

What a game! Highs, lows, and what just happened! moments all over the place. I'm going to dispense with the normal post-game recap as I'm assuming anyone who's reading this has a least watched the highlights if not the whole game, and I'm not sure if I could really recap everything anyway.


Post-Match Chalkboard: Stalemates 4 Life

Hot Time In Old Town at related • 0 views

Chicago came out early and looked like they were going to try and take three points home from Houston. I really enjoyed that; and for a couple of moments in the first half, they came close to doing it, too. Once the second half began, it became more about trying to get back home with a result. The Fire went into this one with a four point lead over Houston, and they return home with a four point lead intact. Stats Just Got Way More Impressive with "Chalkboard"

When MLS debuted their new "Project Ramos" site it came with the promise of increased stats and information on an unprecedented level for MLS. And then it actually came and it really didn't look too different from what we had all grown used to. Today, however, MLS has delivered on their promise with a new stats category under each game recap that will not only allow us to better serve you guys with our reviews but also so that you can go in and review the game yourself.

It has been reported that Ben Olsen did not want to discuss the officiating in this match. I too would like to take the high road, almost. It is without question that the game was littered with incorrect or questionable calls. Still, United should have done better. This is a tough loss for a team coming from the momentum of an emotional opening week win.

What an exciting way to return to the season. United showed a new look and a new attitude to the game. First a few observations followed by player ratings.

Chicago Fire at DC United - MLS #33 - 6:30 PM CST - Comcast Sportsnet

Well, this is truly a tough day and match for Fire fans. As Merwin lamented in his post game recap of the Dallas match, not only is the door pretty much slammed on the Fire's playoff hopes, but they played a pretty poor game Wednesday night to boot. While the Men in Red certainly have the talent to beat DC United tonight, one has to wonder how much is left in the tank and if they can overcome the heartbreak that has been the past 11 days or so.

Yesterday was certainly an eventful Memorial Day for many MLS fans as two teams decided to ditch their respective head coaches. Our friendly neighbors to the north, the Vancouver Whitecaps, bid adieu to their long time USL coach Teitur Thordarson and the Chicago Fire opted to seek out a different direction than where Carlos de los Cobos was taking the team.

Gonzalo Segares' 'Phantom Assist': You be the judge

Hot Time In Old Town at related • 0 views

In doing research for a story on Chicago Fire goals this season, I came across a couple of irregularities on the assist credits for some tallies. The initial press release after a game might have done something like given a second assist credit to Marco Pappa on Cory Gibbs' header vs. San Jose when he really didn't do that much to set up Baggio Husidic's ball into the box.

The Chicago Fire's 2011 MLS Regular Season has essentially become an exercise in preparing for the 2011 U.S. Open Cup and the 2012 MLS Regular Season. Last week's 4-2 loss to the expansion Vancouver Whitecaps was no doubt the worst moment in the Fire's 2011 campaign and it might have been the worst moment in the club's entire history as Stephen Piggott opined in last week's game recap.

Manchester United vs. Chicago Fire - What do you think?

Tomorrow the Chicago Fire will take on Manchester United in a game that is less competitive than pre-season scrimmages. At least in pre-season scrimmages, players are fighting for their role on the team. That doesn't mean tomorrow's game won't be fun and that doesn't mean that tomorrow's game isn't an important opportunity for the Fire to develop.

The home opener. A tradition of 12,000 hard core Chicago Fire fans braving the elements to watch their team. For the fourth year in a row I am proud to be among them. This was by far the coldest Chicago Fire game I have attended. I sat in my seats surrounded by folks who turned out to be knowledgeable fans and had a fantastic time.

Quick and Dirty:

First half: No one scored. Jalil Anibaba missed a free header off a corner. LA had a few opportunities but no shots were put on goal. The Fire defense was up to the task in the first half. The LA defense decided to be overly physical with anyone who was born in Ghana.

The U.S. Open Cup match against Colorado left Carlos de los Cobos with a new and different puzzle to solve. Marco Pappa was out for international duty and Josip Mikulic was out with a minor injury. Pappa and Mikulic had been locks in the middle of the Starting XI so I was intrigued to see the solutions CDLC would bring to the table.

UCSB versus Cal – Dodgy Referee Decision!

Try figuring this one out. During the UCSB versus Cal NCAA second round game this past week, UCSB midfielder Luis Silva (blue jersey) went in on a pretty standard 50-50 tackle, winning the ball in the process. The Cal player, Servando Carrasco (white jersey), gets up off the ground and blatantly punches Silva before he goes diving to the ground.
