  • More on Bridgeview's financial woes and a tax increase for residents......

  • In reply to Guillermo Rivera:

    "Village officials have continued to plow money into the venue. They agreed to divert $2.6 million of the village’s share of stadium revenue to repay the club for suite upgrades, according to a document detailing the arrangement."

    Is that repayment for the 2nd Star Club?

  • You have to scroll down, but at the bottom of an MLS Yanks in Europe report you find this:

    "Over in the Belgian Cup Round of 16, Sacha Kljestan and Anderlecht were knocked out by penalty shootout after a fightback 2-2 draw at Westerlo.

    The US midfielder nearly cancelled out an early goal by former Chicago Fire striker Sherjill MacDonald on 26 minutes, but could not keep his shot from sailing just over. Kljestan would eventually bag Anderlecht's second spot kick in the shootout, but MacDonald had the last laugh with the 4-3 decider."

    Guess he's a goalscorer after all... but only in Belgium.

  • In reply to Modibo:

    Apparently he's in double digits in the goal scoring department over there, and it's not even the halfway point of the season.

  • In reply to Jeff Krause:

    And that's against some stout 2nd division defenses.

    Really, good for him. It sounds like that's a league that has worked out for him. I honestly mean no spite in that statement. Either it's a place where he's more comfortable, or he's found his level, or both. But I'm glad for him as a person.

    At the same time, I'm not glad that he knocked Sacha the person out of the Belgian Cup, but I am glad that he knocked Sacha's stache out. That nasty caterpillar needs to be banished.

  • In reply to Modibo:

    You know, I bang the "comfortable in the system" drum quite a bit, and didn't with Mack because of his fitness and laziness in 2013. That said, you certainly can't deny that he's more comfortable where he's at, and it's actually working for him.

    Good for him. Would've liked that kind of production here, but so it goes...

  • So according to the Best XI release Chicago made the playoffs this year. How did I miss that.
    "A finalist for the 2013 Volkswagen MLS MVP Award, Mike Magee had a break out year finishing second in the league with 21 goals while adding four assists. After being traded from the LA Galaxy on May 25 to his hometown Chicago Fire side, Magee made an immediate impact, scoring seven goals in his first seven matches and led the team to a playoff berth. This is his first MLS Best XI selection."

    At least they spelled his named correctly there. ;)

  • In reply to Guillermo Rivera:

    I always forget - is it McDonald and MacGee or the other way around?
