Hello on a beautiful night from Toyota Park. We are set to see our Chicago Fire (4-3-3 15 pts) take on the visiting FC Dallas (3-6-4 13 pts) in the only Brimstone Cup matchup this season.

Starting XI:

Dallas: Hartman, Loyd, John, Hedges, Benitez, Jackson, Marcelin, Jacobson, Hernandez (C), Leyva, Perez.

Chicago: Johnson, Gargan, Anibaba, Berry, Segares, Nyarko, Robayo, Grazzini, Pause (C), Pappa, Oduro.



Dallas: Seitz, Guarda, Hernandez, Rodriguez, Sealy, Top, Ulloa

Chicago: Tornaghi, Jumper, Bone, Paladini, Pardo, Barouch, Puppo


Referee: Hilario Grajeda

Assistants: Peter Balciunas, Kevin Klinger

4th Official: Abiodun Okulaja


Overall Thoughts:

The first thing that jumps out right away is Robayo starting in place of Pardo.

It'll be interesting to see how Robayo handles himself with the http://www.peudelacreu.org/portal/how-to-get-viagra-without-perscription opportunity to start and get some solid minutes.

Coming off the loss in Portland, the Fire need to get out to an early lead and build on it - no giving up the first goal, and no sitting back if they go ahead early.

The lineup has Patrick Nyarko listed in the midfield with a 4-5-1 lineup - no big surprise there.

It's time for the pregame pagentry, I'll check back in with you guys at halftime - make sure to follow along on Twitter if you're not at the park tonight.
