Johnson
Palmer - Larentowicz - Adailton(?) - Segares
Watson
Shipp(?) - Maloney - Accam
Igboananike - Magee

Maybe? Two of our DPs are primarily left-sided attackers; Magee is a cult hero and league MvP season before last then largely injured last season when Amarikwa stepped up, but Igbo is the final DP and only really a CF; Shipp had a break-out debut season and really deserves continued confidence while Nyarko has been a consistent contributor to the club for season upon season; 4 of our 6 midfielders are either wide or attacking in nature, excluding the two already mentioned.

Lack of depth at DM or even B2B CM is still a worry. Gotta have some steel to accompany the silk.

You think Laurentowicz is more valuable in midfield or defense?

Was never incredibly impressed with him at CB... always looked a lot like what he was, a CDM playing as an emergency CB, serviceable but clearly a bit uncomfortable and an easy target for opponents.


Segares has announced his retirement from playing, so that's our primary LB gone now too.

First match of the new MLS season in half an hour as a new-look Chicago Fire take on reigning champions LA Galaxy in Los Angeles.

And the novel new formation for this Chicago side trying to do all it can to shift away from the dull, record setting number of draws last season? Another flat 4-4-2...


Johnson
Palmer - Larentowicz(C) - Gehrig - J. Jones
Watson - Ritter - Maloney - Shipp
Amarikwa - Igboananike

A CDM (our best CDM/CM) at CB, a CAM in CM, and a very mediocre right side. Exciting times ahead. I wonder if we can hit 19 draws this season?

Could've been so much worse tonight...

Positive? We didn't draw cheers

Jones had a rough night against Ishikazi, who had his way with him down that flank. Igboananike was in Gonzalez's pocket all night as well. Maloney looked ok, but will need time to gell with the team obviously. Larentowicz really doesn't convince me as a CB. Gehrig was solid and committed though.

Best player was probably Amarikwa. Very combative and worked his socks off all over to make chances.

This team will do just fine. Just needs to gell and get used to Yallop's relatively new system. 19 draws? I really don't know. Depends on what we can do with some of our bigger players back. I have to believe we'll unlock more defenses this year than we did the last.

Any idea if this Victor Perez will be available against Phillie?

I count 9 appearances for Levante this season and only 3 of those as a starter. He hasn't appeared for them in over 3 months from what I'm seeing and that was a cup match. His last league appearance was back in October.

Based on that, I'd be very surprised if he's match fit for today's game.

That is not a line-up that inspires confidence. AGAIN we're playing a CDM at CB. What is Yallop's obsession with that?

Not even surprised we're losing at home to Charlotte, to be honest. I get the feeling that the Fire have underestimated their opponents badly for this match.

Excellent win against Dallas. A true upset that was.

That win was the oasis in the desert of mediocrity from this side. I'd say I hope this starts something of a run of form, but I think it might be a misnomer unfortunately.

The Fire has exercised options on midfielders Kingsley Bryce, Matt Polster and Harry Shipp, as well as defender Patrick Doody.

...

The Fire also declined options on nine players, including: Adailton, Jon Busch, Razvan Cocis, Greg Cochrane, Jason Johnson, Alec Kann, Jeff Larentowicz, Lovel Palmer and Chris Ritter. The loan deal for Daneil Cyrus has expired.

...

The following players are currently out of contract: Ty Harden, Mike Magee and Matthew Watson.


Another year of upheaval and transition incoming.
