Fireside Magazine - The Official Chicago Fire Digital Magazine

ISSUE 3: Winter 2014

Welcome to the Winter 2013/14 Issue of Fireside Magazine. While soccer may not always be top of mind during the off-season, there is still plenty to look back on from the 2013 season. In this edition of Fireside, we go 1-on-1 with Chicago native Mike Magee following an unforgettable season that saw him crowned as the 2013 Volkswagen MLS MVP. The Fire forward discusses his goals, role models, and which sport he first aspired to be a star in (we’re glad he eventually chose soccer). We also sit down with the club’s new Head Coach and Director of Soccer, Frank Yallop, to learn more about his career as both a player and a coach.
