GAMETHREAD: FIRE v Sounders, 7:30 p.m., My50 Chicago

The Fire have never beaten Seattle in MLS play. Read that again, froth at the mouth, and share your rageful thoughts here

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

So it's the Sounders. They treat us like we're their shorter, zittier cousin from the country, which, in MLS terms stings because it bears a patina of truth. And, y'know, we've never beaten them.

That's right. Fire v Sounders? Zero wins. Cero. Zed. The empty set.

Here's the XI who will try to right this egregious wrong for CF97 this evening, and it's (as we suspected) as close to a first-choice XI as Frank Yallop and gang have available right now:

The Sounders counter with a suspiciously Fire-themed starting group - three former CF97 in the XI? Jebus:

[EDITORIAL: IF the Fire are defeated by a Seattle team which is starting CHAD BARRETT on the wing, I shall be most ... put out.]

Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m., and the match will be available on My50 Chicago and MLS Live. TO OUR SHATTERED PSYCHES GO!
