This is the single biggest league home match that this club has ever played. We have never been at the top of the league this late in the season. We haven't had a final - that's how I'm viewing this - at home since 2003. On that day 4,000 brave souls showed up and left heartbroken as the fucking Fire beat us at home, 1-0. I left that match in tears. On Sunday, we will have our chance at revenge. We have our chance to take back what Chicago stole from us on that day...our first trophy. In a way, it's poetic to see this club get Chicago at home for the shield. 10 years later, it has almost come full circle. Make no mistake about it, this is the biggest match most of this fan base has ever seen.
As a fan of this club it is your duty to make our home field as intimidating, loud, and full as possible. The days of South Ward bickering are over on Sunday. It's not for fun anymore, it's business. You are in your seat a full half hour before kick-off. You are in Sean Johnson's head before he steps on the pitch. Petke expects it, and we have to deliver. This is the day our fanbase shows what they are truly made of.
