The Chicago Fire are a much improved team to the one the Union beat 1-0. A couple weeks after those sets of games, the Fire traded the rights to Robbie Rogers to Los Angeles Galaxy for Mike Magee, who has been nothing short of spectacular for Chicago. So while the Fire are a good ways back in the standings thanks to their poor start, they really are not a lost cause and should prevent a good test for the Union tonight at PPL Park.
