    Can I suggest some questions (c'mon throw me a bone and ask one)

    1. Have talks begun with Basti?
    2. Will Fire be bringing back the entire coaching staff?
    3. Will Fire make a move for any MLS free agents?
    4. Will there be any homegrown signings this spring?
    5. What specifically does year three of the three year plan entail?

  • In reply to Krasov:

    I think we got most of those in.

  • In reply to Guillermo Rivera:

    will we get a write up soon?

  • Best wishes and good luck to both Djordje Mihailovic and Michael de Leeuw. Two bright stars for the Fire who both deserved a far better finish to their season.

  • I've never rooted for Columbus as much as did last night. Anything to do with the Yankees losing makes my day. The same ref for the Fire/NYRB game was in Portland last night. He was again atrocious. I don't know why he is so highly rated. The Toronto-NYRB game was a joke. NYRB's character came through as simply a bunch of petulant cry babies. I'm rooting for Houston!!!

  • Some thoughts on the Crew's potential move to Austin. Free at the Athletic.

    All MLS fans should be concerned about Crew moving from Columbus
