Hi everyone, it’s TJ, the Chicago Red Stars editor here at Hot Time in Old Town. I’ve decided to do a bit of writing over at the Fire side of things here, and start providing player ratings. We’re working off the usual scale—10 is excellent and 1 is garbage.

Let’s dive right in. Here are the Fire player ratings for the 0-0 draw with FC Cincinnati at Nippert Stadium.

Bobby Shuttleworth: 8

  • It’s hard to argue with a clean sheet. He made three saves, and a couple of those were big ones.

Miguel Navarro: 6

  • Lots of touches, and when he was in the game, the attack worked better down the left side.

Mauricio Pineda: 7

  • Solid defensive performance from the Homegrown.

Francisco Calvo: 6

  • Good performance from the captain. Saving a shot off the line helped preserve a clean sheet.

Boris Sekulić: 5

  • Solid from Boris.

Gastón Giménez: 5

  • Fair performance from the Argentine. He’s starting to look pretty tired out there, though.

Álvaro Medrán: 5

  • Fair from Medrán as well.

Przemyslaw Frankowski: 2

  • Frankowski really struggled again tonight. He completed two passes going forward all night. Only one of those was a key pass, and it was 30 yards from goal. Wicky should look to rest Frankowski for the New England match.

Fabian Herbers: 6

  • It didn’t amount to anything, but the attack worked better down his left side.

Ignacio Aliseda: 6

  • Nacho played well. This would have been even higher if his beautiful goal wasn’t disallowed.

Robert Berić: 4

  • He works hard, makes smart runs, and plays hold up well. And yes, he’s starved for service. But a striker’s still judged by his goal scoring output, and he didn’t score again last night. Only two shots, and one of those was on target.

Subs

Djordje Mihailovic: 7

  • Mihailovic provided a massive and obvious spark to the team when he entered the match in the 61st minute. He deserves to get the start against New England.

Elliot Collier: 7

  • He would have had the assist on the disallowed Aliseda goal. The Kiwi worked hard, fearlessly dribbled at defenders, and like Mihailovic, injected life into the listless Fire.

Jonathan Bornstein: 5

  • Jonny B, the third of the three 61st minute subs, also played well.

So what do you think? Did we get it right? Let us know in the comments!
