  • Another draw ‘defines’ struggling Fire’s season Oct 5, 2014 9:17 PM
    For the fourth time in the past five seasons, the Chicago Fire will not advance to the MLS playoffs. Let that sink in for a while.

  • Earnshaw’s scores in 92nd; Fire ties Union 1-1 Oct 2, 2014 10:15 PM
    CHESTER, Pa.— Robert Earnshaw chipped home a shot in the 92nd minute to give the Chicago Fire their MLS-record 17th tie of the season, a 1-1 draw with the Philadelphia Union on Thursday night. Earnshaw stole a clearance attempt by goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi, took one dribble, and lofted the ball over the outstretched arm of Mbolhi. Chicago (5-8-17) broke the record of 16 ties set in 2011 by the Fire and the New York Red Bulls. Philadelphia (9-10-12) took a 1-0 lead in the 88th minute when Amobi Okugo sent home a deflected cross. Philadelphia was in control for most of the game. The Union’s Andrew Wenger dribbled from midfield to the 18-yard box in the 56th minute and centered a pass, but an open Cristian Maidana pushed the ball just wide of the post. Brian Brown had an open shot just outside the 6-yard box in the 72nd minute, but his left-footed shot went wide.

  • Fire ties record with 16th draw Sep 20, 2014 11:06 PM
    There was nothing sweet about No. 16 for the Chicago Fire. Not after giving up a 2-goal lead by allowing three consecutive goals. Certainly not in the mark itself, tying the MLS record for draws in a season with Saturday’s 3-3 tie against D.C. United at Toyota Park.
