MLS Playoffs: D.C. United at Chicago Fire

This is Chicago's final home game of the season, and the last for Fire captain Chris Armas. The midfielder has been with the club since its inception, helping lead the Fire to their lone championship in 1998, and said he will retire after this season.

Not so fast Herr Sanford- the Tribune finally hired a full time soccer reporter who keeps a daily blog about the Fire.

Anyway, he reported earlier this week that while Armas' contract is up he's considering another season. It seems that he's feeling stronger under coach JC Osorio's system and that's something the evidence on the pitch bears out. I'd welcome Chris as long as he comes back at a lower salary. We've got talent to take his place- Logan Pause has finally come into his own as a holding player and our first round pick from last year, Bakary Soumare, has shown great potential along with some erratic play.

So anyway, I'm off to the match. We're going to kill them.
