The 2016 debut of the Fire Confidential Live podcast features former Fire player, Technical Director, and coach Frank Klopas, the Daily Herald's Orrin Schwarz, match preview writer Martin Tomszak, and new members of the ISA board.
The podcast was recorded live during the ISA/Section 8 Chicago Annual General Meeting. If you can get by the background crowd noise, Klopas had some interesting things to say about his time with the Fire and his dismissal from the Montreal Impact.
Former San Jose Earthquakes, FC Dallas, and Real Salt Lake midfielder Arturo Alvarez is set to join the Fire in training camp. He most recently played in Hungary with Videoton and is currently looking for a team. He may be able to add some depth and compete for a spot at right midfield if the Fire do sign him. No contract has been agreed to yet, as it appears he'll arrive for a trial.
