  • Happy Thanksgiving message from Calen Carr, his moustache, and the Fire............


  • Kick back, watch some football, eat, drink and be merry. Happy Thanksgiving

  • MLS trade mill doesn't stop.....

    Toronto FC sends their first round pick (#8 overall) to Vancouver for Nathan Sturgis.

  • Seems to be a bit much for sturgis. I think Alonso made him look better then he was

  • In reply to lijien:

    I agree..that's a bit steep for Nathan Sturgis.

  • GR, I just wanted to say thanks for all the time and research that you put into this blog.

  • I'm thankful for such a dedicated Fire blog.

  • In reply to cweimers:

    Colton and Clayton,

    Thank you for contributing!

  • Reflections on Season 2010
    An ode to our beloved Chicago Fire by lone coyote


    An ode to our beloved Chicago Fire
    whose current situation is very dire

    While providing Portland a rich dowery
    by giving them player, Peter Lowry

    Now is is not any laughing matter
    because we're still stuck with Mike Banner

    Both Klopas and De Los Cobos seem completely clueless
    based on obtaining players who are totally useless

    Many of their decisions make no sense
    just makes the Front Office look dense

    With the conclusion of the 2010 season
    many true Chicago Fire fans reason

    With the number of quality Fire players far fewer
    are the Chicago Fire going down an open sewer.

    Very Poetic and True Lone Coyote
    I think you should send this to Andrew Hauptman.
    He needs to know how disappointed Chicago Fire Fans
    are with Frank Klopas and Carlos de los Cobos {Crapas}
    performance in 2010. With those two Guys in Charge there
    is not much to look forward to in 2011.

  • In reply to lonecoyote:

    Great job with this blog, GR -- it's great to have such a dedicated local writer. That's what we should ALL be thankful for! Keep up the great work and we'll all keep visiting and contributing.

    And lonecoyote, that was pretty excellent.

  • In reply to RedLine55:

    Thanks RedLine!

    I'm hoping to have even more to look forward to in 2011 on Fire Confidential.

  • In reply to RedLine55:

    As expected....the Castillo to Tigres story is bogus.......

  • In reply to lonecoyote:

    Lone is like Fire Confidential's Leapin' Lanny Poffo.

  • In reply to lonecoyote:

    Comments from Thorrington and Lowry.....


  • In reply to lonecoyote:

    While I value Thors intensity, drive and work rate, I am a little relieved he's gone. He was always good for a card a game and overcomitted to the ball to much for my liking.

  • In reply to lonecoyote:


    The thought of sitting outside at Toyota Park right now is such as a great idea......

  • In reply to cesba:

    Honestly, I would never go to any games in november, december, feb and probably not in march.. heck october would be hard for me. I do not want to sit outside in 30 or 40 degree weather with snow or freezing rain..

  • In reply to lijien:

    "Fair weather fan"...

  • In reply to lijien:

    FC Dallas is in search of some of the same positions the Fire are looking to fill.......


  • In reply to lijien:

    And.....so are the Portland Timbers......


    Central attacking midfield is the hardest position to fill in MLS.

  • In reply to lijien:

    Rumored MLS interest in Robbie Keane......


  • In reply to lijien:

    More on Keane.....


  • In reply to lijien:

    Meanwhile....this isn't very promising


  • In reply to lijien:

    Looks like this guy has had some success at lower levels but he makes Mike Banner look like a giant.


  • In reply to cesba:

    Good lord, we're better off looking at college prospects and saving on travel costs and reimbursements for Frank to vacation in Europe.

  • In reply to cesba:

    FIFA schedule wouldn't be so bad If the stadia had stands all th way around and roofs like in England.

  • In reply to cesba:

    Cold, wet and wind wouldn't bother me. I've never had a problem attending Bears games or college football games in crappy weather. I only remember having fun with everyone else around me, not to mention that the local team can actually use the cold to their benefit. The mountain teams can use the thin air to their advantage, the teams in humid zones use that, why not use the cold to ours (i.e. USNT playing Mexico in Columbus).

    Bring the cold and snow, I'll layer up and liquor up.
