  • DLC replaces Thorrington with Peter Lowry and keeps Ristic on the oustide. Nyarko replaces Pappa in the starting XI which is probably a good move.

  • Chris Sullivan calls Calen Carr "dynamic" before kick off

  • In reply to cesba:

    WTH!!!! Obviously, he hasn't watch Chicago Fire soccer enough. ugh!!!

  • In reply to cesba:

    84' - Yellow card on Conde for a boot on Cunningham. guessed it....Conde will miss the next match with yellow card accumulation.

  • In reply to cesba:

    85'- Carr serves in a cross to McBride in front of a wide open net and his attempt to bury the sitter goes over the net.

  • In reply to cesba:

    Can't decide which is more painful, wtaching Fire's listless performance, or the FSC commentary...

    Final Score FC Dallas 3 Fire 0

    FCD wasn't exactly as dominant as the score indicates but the Fire were awful in the second half.

  • 7' - Dangerous cross from Dallas and Krol taps it back dangerously toward his own net for a corner

  • Aot of possession for FCD early

  • 11' - Lowry tries to chip Sala and it doesn't work

  • 12'- Ristic with time and takes a shot from distance but Sala is in front of it

  • 14'- Ljungberg gets Nyarko in on Sala but Sala comes out and breaks up a very good chance

  • 20'- Rodriguez gets a bit of a lucky bounce and beats Watson-Siriboe for a goal....1-0 FCD

  • 28' - Alexander with a shot from distance handled easily by Johnson

  • 28'- Yellow on Pause for a tackle on Ferreira

  • 30'- Chavez with a yellow for a foul on Ristic

  • 32'- Carr and Ljungberg waste a chance in front of net

  • 32' - Carr has a chance but tries to dive and draw a PK instead of continuing the run

  • Lowry's struggling a bit out there

  • Fire are coming very close to beating the FCD back line with some of these balls

  • 40' - Carr with an open header but it's over the cross bar

  • 1-0 FCD at half time. Pretty even first half but an error judging a high ball by Watson-Siriboe gets the Fire down

  • Must have been one hell of a half time speech...

  • I wonder what kind of tactical adjustments DLC will make now.

  • In reply to DerSting:

    Lowry should come off. Move Ristic into the middle and get Pappa on the pitch. Might as well get Conde in there for Pause.

  • In reply to DerSting:

    54'- Pappa comes on for Lowry

  • In reply to DerSting:

    55'- Ferrerira gets by Krol and just misses wide

  • In reply to DerSting:

    57'- Cunningham is in for Rodriguez

  • In reply to DerSting:

    59'- Conde for Watson-Siriboe

  • In reply to DerSting:

    67'- Robinson is called for a foul in the box as he tries to stop Cunningham.....PK
    Cunningham coverts and it's 3-0 FC Dallas

  • In reply to cesba:

    Chicago makes the record books again this season..

  • In reply to DerSting:

    67'- McBride is on for Nyarko

  • In reply to DerSting:

    69'- Brek Shea for Marvin Chavez

  • 46' - Marvin Chavez gets a fortunate deflection off of Kinney's foot and it's 2-0 FCD. This is just not the Fire's year.
