Settle in on your couches, crack open a frosty drink, grab the chips, and get ready for what promises to be a really, really long night for the New England Revolution as they take on the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park this evening. The Revs have never won in Bridgeview during the regular season, and given the way the team has been playing - especially on the road - they don't look to likely to turn that little streak around right now.

Oddly enough, the Revs' winless streak in Chicago mirrors their current winless streak in league play: 0-5-1 over their last six games. Just a little something funny there, I suppose.

Look for today's battle to be one in each attacking third rather than in the middle of the pitch. New England is arguably the stronger side in midfield, but it's going to be down to their ability to contain Chicago's dangerous attacking talent (Nyarko, Pappa, Grazzini, Rolfe, MacDonald, Oduro...whomever starts/plays) and also their own ability to finish. Jerry Bengtson traveled with the team to the Windy City, but you gotta wonder if he's going to have the legs to make an impact. He certainly didn't last week.
