  • Both teams are listed as 4-4-2 in the team sheets.

    Anibaba starts in place of Gargan, who is available on the bench.

  • Berry/Friedrich > Anibaba/Friedrich.

  • Fire had absolutely nothing going in the first half. KC took advantage of some disorganization immediately after Friedrich went out to take the lead but they didn't have much going before that either.

    I'd like to see Robayo come in for Pause to start the second half. Fire need to get something going offensively and this team is difficult to break down. Puppo is not the answer for a bigger, physical team.

  • For a team with so much speed, we're completely incompetent and running a counter.

  • Well, this one was gift-wrapped but I'll take it.

    Robayo has to start over Pause.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    I like Robayo more and more. I think that Pardo would be an excellent captain. Emotionally, though, I don't like taking Pause off the field or out of the captain's role. This is going to be a tough call for Frankie.
