The Scouting Report
Last season, the Chicago Fire missed the playoffs by the slimmest of margins: their 14–13–7 record was tied with Montreal Impact for the Eastern Conference’s fifth-best mark, but the Impact snuck in based on a goal-differential tiebreaker. As the 2014 season gets underway, the Fire will seek redemption behind the golden boot of Chicago native Mike Magee, who finished last season as the team’s leading scorer and an MLS MVP. On March 23, in their home opener, the Fire will have a chance to usurp the Red Bulls, who finished last season with the best record in the MLS. The Red Bulls also scored more goals than any other club in 2013, making it a critical game for the Fire’s goalie wunderkind Sean Johnson, who spent some time with the US Men’s National team in the offseason and will look to smother opponents’ shots with acrobatic saves instead of mounds of melted cheese.
Kindled on October 8, 1997—the 126th anniversary of Chicago’s infamous blaze—the Chicago Fire played their first Major League Soccer season in 1998 as one of the league’s first expansion teams—and nabbed its first and only MLS Cup in that inaugural season. Under the supervision of U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Bob Bradley, the club has been a hazard ever since, taking home four Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup trophies and reaching the playoffs in nearly every year of its existence. Located in Bridgeview, Toyota Park hosts each home game, its grounds spacious enough to seat 20,000 and fertile enough for planting new soccer-net saplings each spring.
