    Retire or re-sign? Fire, Friedrich quick to choose the latter

    Fire Re-sign Defender Arne Friedrich

    German World Cup veteran defender returns to Fire for 2013

    "Building continuity at the center back positions is a priority in 2013," said Fire President of Soccer Operations Javier Leon. "Arne's international experience and leadership are key to our defense. We are happy to have him back next season."

    This seems like an appropriate time for some German Industrial Rock. Besies, "Left, Right, Straight ahead" seems an apt description of Arne's play

    With a full season of Berry, Arne and Gibbs, our defense should be in the "B-A-G".

    Of course, that would mean we are playing with three central defenders.

    Overall, this is great news.

    Great that Arne is staying, but does this mean we will see Anibaba at right back fulltime? <smh>

    From everything I've heard, he's been having a blast living in Chicago. Really great that we've got him for another season.

    Amen. He has been a fantastic addition. Couldn't be happier to have him back.

    We should be trying to upgrade over Jalil period. Whether you are talking center back or outside back. He would be good depth, but I don't want him starting at either spot, and if you are suggesting that we might be better with Jalil in the middle (instead of Arne) so that we can have Gargan or someone else outside, I would completely disagree.

    No, I'm with you, he's a backup plain and simple.

    If he's having a blast and wants to win, maybe he can get on the phone to some Bundesliga fullbacks.maybe someone like Patrick Ochs (RB) who I think was at Wolfsburg around the same time with Arne.
