Good tie for the Fire. Cant wait to play at TP next week though! Fire will move on with a 3x0 victory!(McBride scores two goals, Rolfe gets the exclamation point!)

This is really good result for the Fire away from home. Chicago will definetely take care of bussiness back here. I'm glad to see McBride connecting with the net, even though his goal was taken away. Good defense too! a victory next thursday, and I guarantee you, the Fire will go all the way.

I hardly ever watch soccer....but i know enough about the sport to see things develop and understand when a team has missed a legit scoring opprotunity...and for some reason i turned this game on 12 minutes in and watched the rest of the way.....WHAT A MISTAKE...a bunch of players flopping, complaining to the refs, trying to draw yellow cards. One guy was screaming like his leg fell off, until he saw the ref take out the yellow card and jumped back up right after. AND NO GOALS.....barely that many chances. What a waste of time....this is entertainment?

This was a horrible result for the Fire - they should have won this game 3-0. No Twellman, no Ralston and two other starters out with red cards and the Fire go to New England and play for a tie!
