    I'm eager to see the new kid on DC. As well as Orlando Perez tear up his old teammates. Hey, maybe Gazza will be in uniform...

    something to celebrate, a night game!

    I doubt Gazza will suit up but he should be with the team. who knows for sure though

    The earliest Paul Gascoigne would play for DC is the 10 August match in DC. That isn't to say he might not travel with the team to Chicago. I don't know that.
     
  5. I'm scheduled to bring people from as far away as Austria & Bangladesh. Well, my friend from Bangladesh lived in Liverpool for 5 years and is a US citizen & has been to FIRE games b4, but not this year.

    Be there unless you're dead or in jail, and if you're in jail, break out.

    It doesn't look like it unless there is a last minute change.
     
  12. I have quite a few tickets for this game, either in Section 8, or in other sections behind goals. If anybody is interested, please contact me. I will be at the Jimmy's (?) bar (or right in front of it) on the NW corner of Washington and Chicago in Naperville at least 1.5 hours before the game. Obviously, the tickets are deeply discounted.

    Walk the walk

    I'll be in attendance again. And as I've done for the past 3 games, I'll be bringing some friends.

    I've exposed friends from work and from my neighborhood to MLS. So far, I have gotten three of them who want to come back. They all love the spirit and level of passion.

    As for Section 8, we really need to come out in force. Firstly, it's a night game! Secondly, even though we were well received by the media for the MetroStars game, I think we've done better in previous matches. Let's see if we can reach that same level of spirit we had for the Morelia game. Except this time WE'LL be the home team.

    Let's GO FIRE!!!!!!

    man, I need to re-think the practice schedule I set out for my high school team for next summer.

    This will be the 3rd Wednesday game this month that I could have gone too but I'll be missing.

    And this one has discounted tickets to boot! :)

    How deep?

    I need 2 maybe 4.

    My cell is 773-406-6445. I'll meet you at Jimmy's. I'll be taking the train, probably the 5:22.

    Me too how deep? In a bit of a financial pinch at the moment but for cheapo ticks can make the run into town.

    PM or call cell at 563-580-0907
     
  18. Also, don't forget that I have the new design Fire Ultras scarves for sale at games. If I make any money on these, it will be spent towards stuff for nice Section 8 presentations at the end of the season (baloons, streamers, etc.). In fact, I already have baloons at home; they are just waiting for that nice cooler Saturday evening game night.

    Re: Re: Walk the walk

    You're right, my bad. I'll keep it cleaner on a go forward basis. I forgot this is a family-friendly message board.

    Adios,
    See you guys in Secion 8!!
     
  21. In front of Jimmy's before the game (see the directions above) or in Section 8 during the game. I am a guy with really fair hair (and people don't believe me that it is natural and it is) that leads the cheers sometimes.

    What he's really trying to say is that he's the bleach-blonde guy with the ultra scarve.

    The only game listed on the Shootout package for July 31 is the Crew at Metrostars.


    Whoopee........

    Kansas City at Dallas is also on the Shootout package..

    Absolutely no TV coverage of this game..

    English language webcast available on dcunited.com


    As for the game itself, this should be an easy 3 points for Chicago as much as I hate to say it..

    United is in a ridiculous scoring slump and have zero confidence at the moment.. When they go down by a goal, the game most assuredly will be over..


    Avert your eyes if don't want to cringe when you see the proposed starting 11 against Chicago..


    ------------------- Rimando ---------------------

    Namoff ------ Prideaux ----- Nelsen --- McKinley


    Alegria ------ Williams ------ Etch ------- Convey


    ------------- Lassiter----- Quintanilla ------------



    Reyes, Quaranta, Villegas all out due to injury..

    Only saving grace for United is that Pope is near full fitness and Ben Olsen should see about 30 minutes of action..


    Chicago 4 (Wolff 2, Razov 2)

    United 0 (again - extending scoreless streak to now ridiculous 421 minutes)
