Jeld-Wen Field a "Shoe Box" according to Fire player

Here we go again, it would seem. Here come the excuses and ranting about Jeld Wen's field size. It's not the first time, and unfortunately it probably won't be the last. This isn't Chicago's first go-round here either, and to complain about the pitch's size is quickly getting old. Just to note: Chicago's pitch is 10 yards longer and 5 yards wider. Houston's BBVA Compass Stadium that just opened, is the same width and only 5 yards longer. It's within regulation and FIFA two-star certified...is it still fair game to complain about the pitch? Or is this just making excuses for losing in a tough place to play? I thought maybe our pitch was just too comfortable for the them, as it sure seemed like Chicago players spent a lot of time flopping on to it.
