    Default 6/29 FIRE @ Kansas City 7:00pm (NBCSN)

    Let's go for three in a row!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'll be there rooting them on and it could be Grazzini's last game in a FIRE uniform.

    I wonder if Rolfe is ready to start if FK starts him in Grazzini's spot of uptop with Oduro. Freidrich play on Saturday and should be ready to start on Friday. FK said once Freidrich is back in the starting 11 he will go with a 4-4-2 formation with one defensive midfielder, well we will see.

    If for some reason that we do sign Shevchenko, how long will it take him to start playing? He was playing in Euro 2012, so fit wise he should be ready.

    Not sure about Stevchenko, but we need Grazzini to play and we need to win it for him, just bench Pause for this game... I still hope we can keep Saba.

    easier said then done..... I've been saying this for more than 5 years, he's not going anywhere, but go directly into the Ring of FIRE.....because he's the best player FIRE ever had.......


    Well considering that Shevchenko might be going to DC, if he was the player that was going to replace Grazzini in the starting 11 (so maybe just maybe that Grazzini isn't going anywhere after all).

    If Shevchenko falls through and FIRE don't pick up Grazzini's option and they don't have another option (besides Alex), then this will be a HORRIBLE mistake by the FIRE......

    I think it is horrible in any scenario, even if he can be replaced to an extent.

    Yeah, I'll be down in KC as well.

    I'm salivating over the possibility this, if even just for one game.

    ______________Rolfe______________
    ___Oduro_______________Nyarko____
    _________Pappa__Grazzini___________

    _____________Pardo_______________
    _Anibaba__Friedrich__Berry___Gargan_

    ____________Johnson______________



    Come to think of it, it's essentially FOUR attacking mids.

    That looks really good, but I think Oduro would still be at striker with Rolfe, since Klopas said 4-4-2 and everything

    I know what Klopas has said about the 4-4-2, but I'm not going based off anything he's said (he also never gives out a straight answer so that's kind of odd), just my personal preference. I just love the idea of the speed on the wings... call Oduro & Nyarko wing forwards in my crazy formation if you want. I just really love the idea of having to fully spread the defense out to guard those two to leave more room in the middle for Rolfe/Pappa/Grazzini.

    Ya, that makes sense and sounds like a damn good formation.

    FireConf says that family issues were cited as a potential reason he isn't travelling... this entire Grazzini saga is still weird.

    DFBJeff says organization said that he didn't train on Tuesday as the reason he won't travel, but he trained the last 2 days (today and yesterday then?)

    FireConf says:
    "Desire to return to Argentina. Says he informed his agent that they were picking up option a month ago.Expects Grazz to be here rest of year"

    Sounds like they picked up the option over a month ago now, but didn't let anybody know.

    That was the first rumor I heard, but then it turns out that he is in Argentina with family issues right now.
