Here are some interesting items to look at in the wake of yesterday's misery.
From mlssoccer.com, Nick Firchau's thoughts....
"On a night of few real surprises in the league, the biggest head-scratcher belongs to Carlos de los Cobos. The Fire coach is suddenly mortal again, thanks to his team's 4-1 flop at Toronto FC.
After weeks of praise for his 4-5-1 formation, de los Cobos opted for a 4-4-2 for the bulk of Saturday's night match. And, wow, did the wheels fall off. Can it really be that grinders like Peter Lowry and Baggio Husidic will define the team's success this season rather than the superstars like Brian McBride and Collins John? Looks like it could be true."
