This game is about as big as they get. The Fire need to win to keep up with the pack of playoff teams at the top of the eastern conference. It will be interesting to see what the atmosphere is like in the wake of Dan Lobring's editorial from last Wednesday.
In the lead up to the game, here are a couple of links to kill some time while waiting for kick off:
- Steven Piggott's tactical preview over at Chicago-Fire has some interesting thoughts on tonight's game. I particularly like his idea of how the team can utilize Alex.
- Adam Merges put up his preview earlier today. He has picked Juan Luis Anangonó as his wild card for the Fire tonight.
- Speaking of Anangonó, TomazPP put up a FanShot were a writer for the BBC gives an interesting perspctive Anangonó. For me, it is not a very encouraging perspective.
Lineups soon to follow!
