After the conclusion of SuperLiga fans and media began to wonder if Carlos De Los Cobos would consider getting a look at Sean Johnson in the starting goalkeeper role. It seems De Los Cobos is pondering the move. Johnson has seen some action with the first team in training and the Fire coach was noncommittal when asked about it after practice.

Sam Stejskal also asked the question while noting that Manuel Salazar continues to train with the Fire while Justin Mapp's roster spot has not been filled.
The Fire's next opponent, LA Galaxy were trounced in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champion's League first round by USL's Puerto Rico Islanders. The 4-1 loss at the Home Depot Center was particuarly embarrassing considering that Landon Donovan and Edson Buddle both played the full 90 minutes.
