  • Halftime 1-1
    The Fire once again hold most of the possesion and create more scoring opportunities than the opponent. Conde is going through a rough stretch.

    He might be getting a little Bakary "I'm too big for this league" Soumare in him?

    Mike Banner needs to fall out of the lineup immediately. He played worse, in the sister cities tournament, than Nick Noble played against Club America last year. He somehow got a start tonight and was not good at all. His free kick was 25 yards out and he almost hit the concession stand behind the goal. Then Mapp played him a perfect ball inside the 6 and he kicked it over the net. He lost the ball every time he tried to go forward and then would foul. He needs to go away quick. He should go wherever Caitlin Carr is right now. Not in our lineups or on the bench.

    Positives from tonight: Justin Mapp played great today. Should not have come off the field. McBride won close to 30 headballs tonight and played his best match of the season. Mapp and Nyarko gave Dallas fits on the wings the whole time they were on. Pause played well again and is stringing together some good performances of late. CJ was solid again but needs to get some rest this weekend and shouldnt play against Milan. Robinson and Krol looked in control which was nice to see. I think we played well and deserved more from the match.

    Negatives: BANNER! Switching to a 4-4-2 when the 4-5-1 was working very well against them. Subbing out Mapp instead of Banner. Conde trying to be cute in the back which led to a goal that was called offsides. John isnt making a case for himself to start any time soon.

    I think there is on Fire in the players. Weak performance IMO. Parts of the game were OK but I didn't like Banner, Nyarko, or Baggio performance. Nyarko learn to receive and pass don't have to run a them every single time. Also why does McBride have to defend while Collins sits back and waits.
    Overall the Fire game is just way to slow even slower then last year...
