A new Chicago Fire season is near, which means it's a good time to start a new podcast.
Shane Murray, a Fire contributor for MLSSoccer.com, joined me for our new endeavor: the Fire Talk Podcast.
This first episode focused on the key departures and new additions to the Fire this season and served as a look ahead to the 2017 season. We looked at the additions made to the team, how the team may line up to start the season and what improvements still need to be made.
Also, the Fire are 5-0 in the preseason, but do preseason results matter?

According to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bulls are continuing to go after Chicago native and Sixers center Jahlil Okafor.
Chicago has continued to push on a trade for 76ers center Jahlil Okafor, league sources tell @TheVertical. Discussions continue.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) February 23, 2017
According to Wojnarowski, the Bulls are trying to persuade the Sixers to entertain Nikola Mirotic as part of the pacage they would send to Philadelphia.
Okafor has been linked to the Bulls dating back to last month, when CSN Bulls Insider Vincent Goodwill reported that the Bulls were going after the 21-year-old center.
