  • Please don't list Osorio as a Fire alumunist. He badly disrespected this team and got rid of Ivan who was a good left back for us.

  • In reply to smiley:

    Please I don't want to see a Dennis Hamlett update either. He was a disgrace to the organization. Same guy that chased Soumare out of town and had Blanco and Rolfe playing out of position. At least Osorio brought Wilman Conde from Milionaros.

  • In reply to longoria3:

    How was Hamlett a disgrace to the club? Where should Blanco have played? Hamlett was not a good manager but was a great assistant and will always be a Fire guy. Hamlett didn't handle Soumare the right way by fighting with him but Bakary was on his way out no matter what. He was terrible for us last season and I wish we got more for him but I dont really miss him that much.

  • In reply to Rubberbandman189:

    That is all Hamlett is a great assistant; not a full time coach. He was terrible since he took over as head coach; he had the best team by far in MLS but could not bring a championship to Chicago. Blanco is a midfielder where he played in Mexico instead of playing on top; he doesn't have the speed to play at that position.

    A disgrace would be Lothar Matthaeus or Ruud Gullit swooping in for a pay day and then whimpering about how things are not like in Europe. Dedicating 10+ years to a club and taking them to the semifinals as head coach is not a disgrace. People had issues with his competence (and maybe with the F.O. for elevating him to the position), but I wouldn't question his dedication to the team.

  • In reply to oliotya:

    I won't exclude anyone, no matter what the circumstances of their departure. If they were part of the team, they are part of the history of the franchise.

  • In reply to smiley:

    How about Damani? I hear he was getting a tryout with NYRB.

  • In reply to oliotya:

    Doug,
    I listed him on a previous alumni update. He played in a friendly a few weeks ago with the Red Bulls but he has not been signed to a deal by the club. He did spend the pre-season on trial with them as well.

  • In reply to cesba:

    I have not heard Damani Ralph's name mentioned in the soccer world. He had been through alot of injuries for the past couple of years.

  • Please dont list Osorio as a Fire aluminst. He badly disrespected this team and got rid of Ivan who was a good left back for us.
