Probable: D Michael Orozco Fiscal (left hamstring strain)

Chicago Fire

Out: M John Thorrington (right hamstring strain), M Marco Pappa (right hamstring tightness), F Brian McBride (left quad contusion)

In case you hadn't heard, McBride is retiring at the end of this season. This will be his first, and only, appearance in Philadelphia as a professional soccer player. I will be very interested to see what kind of reception he gets from the fans.

I know that Philadelphia is not a town that treats visiting players kindly, but I've heard discussion among some members of the Sons of Ben that McBride deserves a good cheer when he is introduced. He is certainly one of the best players in U.S. national team history, and arguably its best ever pure striker.

I'll be chatting live from PPL Park during the game. You'll find the SEPTA schedule below the chat console. Note that there is extra service to and from Delaware for the evening.
