Chicago Fire vs. DCU - MLS #19 - Fireside Chat

The Fire are still licking their wounds after a 3-1 thrashing at the hands if the Whitecaps. However a familiar foe lurks that the Men in Red will play 2 times in less than a month

Fire vs. Whitecaps - MLS #18 - Fireside Chat

After a tough home loss to Sporting KC< the Fire travel to Vancouver for another difficult match Sunday evening

Fire vs. Sporting KC - MLS #17 - Fireside Chat

In a nationally televised Sunday match, the Men in Red will look to keep their winning ways going against a Sporting KC team that has been on the opposite end of the spectrum: a recent funk

Fire vs. Crew - MLS #15 - Fireside Chat

Two days ago, the Men in Red held on for an exciting 3 points. Tomorrow the Fire travel to Columbus to take on a rival and try to put another 3 points in the standings

Fire vs. Timbers - MLS #13 - Fireside Chat

The Fire will look to continue their winning ways at home again this week, still bolstered by the recent additions of Bakary Soumare and Mike Magee

Chicago Fire vs. DCU - MLS #12 - Fireside Chat

After grinding out a tough point at Rio Tinto and welcoming Mike Magee back home to Chicago, the Men in Red will face off against the cellar-dwellers in the East

Chicago Fire vs. Philadelphia Union - MLS #9 - Fir

It's time to dust things off after another bye week and see if I still remember how to do this Fireside chat thing

Chicago Fire vs. Impact - MLS #8 - Fireside Chat

The Fire will face off with a hot Impact team to start the season. After a good past 3 weeks for an improving Chicago team, a result would be an added bonus heading into an off week

Chicago Fire vs. Columbus Crew - MLS #7 - Fireside

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

Fire vs. Dynamo - MLS #6 - Fireside Chat

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

Chicago Fire vs. NYRB - MLS #5 - Fireside Chat

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.

Chicago Fire vs. Chivas USA -MLS #4 -Fireside Chat

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

Chicago Fire vs. SKC- MLS #3 - Fireside Chat

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
