SB Nation Fire Perspective: A Hot Time in Old Town

The international break is over! MLS is back! And so are our Red Bulls, who head out to Chicago to re-start their season against the Fire.

There's no Thierry Henry for New York, who have set up in...some kind of formation that is not very clear from the team sheet. I think (!) it's a 4-5-1 or a 4-1-4-1 with Kenny Cooper alone up top and Heath Pearce in defensive midfield. But we don't know. Connor Lade doesn't start for reasons beyond my understanding.

Lineups

Red Bulls (4-4-2? 4-1-4-1? 4-5-1?): Ryan Meara; Brandon Barklage, Markus Holgersson, Wilman Conde, Roy Miller; Heath Pearce, Jan Gunnar Solli, Dax McCarty, Joel Lindpere, Dane Richards; Kenny Cooper

Bench: Jeremy Vuolo, Stephen Keel, Jonathan Borrajo, Victor Palsson, Mehdi Ballouchy, Jhonny Arteaga, Connor Lade

Fire: Johnson; Gargan, Anibaba, Berry, Segares; Pause, Pardo; Nyarko, Grazzini, Pappa; Odur

Bench: Tornaghi, Jumper, Paladini, Robayo, Puppo, Barouch, Rolfe


A win will pull us to within a point of DC at the top of the East, still with two games in hand. So let's do that.
