What We Want to Happen Today 10/3

Two midweek games this week, one has an effect on KC, the other has not effect at all for KC.

Philadelphia at Chicago
What we want to happen - Philadelphia win

This is the only one of the two games to mean anything for KC.  This is the Fire's game in hand on KC.  Currently sitting 5 points back of KC, a win would put the Fire back in second place in the East and only 2 points behind KC.  A loss leaves them 5 points adrift with 3 games left.  The Fire though haven't lost at home.  The Union are out of the playoff hunt at this point, even though they still have 5 games left, they're 19 points out of the final playoff spot.

Chivas at Vancouver
What we want to happen - Doesn't matter

Chivas is at the bottom of the Western Conference, but is surprisingly still alive in the playoff race at this point, but that can end with a Vancouver win.  The Whitecaps are sitting in the 5th spot in the West on 39 points and don't have the ability to catch KC on points.  A meaningless game to KC.
