The Chicago Fire look to break their four game winless streak tonight against the Colorado Rapids at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. Carlos de los Cobos is returning to the 4-1-4-1 lineup we saw last year. The Starting XI and your comments after the break.
Fire Starting XI:
Jon Conway; Jalil Anibaba, Josip Mikulic, Yamith Cuesta, Gonzalo Segares; Daniel Paladini; Dominic Oduro, Corben Bone, Gaston Puerari, Marco Pappa; Diego Chaves
Daniel Paladini and Corben Bone will get their first starts of the season. Gaston Puerari will get time in the midfield. Dominic Oduro gets his first start on the midfield wing. Marco Pappa is wearing the captain's arm band. I've been curious to see all of these happen... but I don't know what I think about seeing it happen all at the same time. The subs for tonight's game are:
Sean Johnson, Baggio Husidic, Dasan Robinson, Pari Pantazopoulos, Bratislav Ristic, Orr Barouch, Patrick Nyarko
Is Patrick Nyarko injured? I thought Oduro earned the start for last week's game because the game was against his former club but why start him at right wing over Nyarko when Paladini, Bone, Oduro, and Puerari are in new roles? I'm excited to get a look at Pari though. I hope he gets subbed into the game. Well, here's goes nothing I guess.
