ATLONFIRE trivia is back and we talk about it all, including some top memories of the 2021 season good and bad. Dave walks us through a detailed analysis of the playoff loss to NYFC on their home field (advantage) designed for a 7v7 match. MLS Next is coming and ATLUTD2 will likely join in 2023. Thiago Almada in, but not just yet with Barco still in the house.
Dave brings his own wine to celebrate the playoffs for Atlanta United. Mike admits, the wine is not only drinkable, it's good! Shocked about a year 1 wine, we go into the formation change from Gonzalo Pineda and why we should be playing 4-3-3 headed into the NYFC playoff game. But, we don't think the coach will go that direction. Mike thinks we'll win regardless and advance in the playoffs, Dave thinks it's our final stop. We talk about it all, including the new wonderboy Thiago Almada who will join the team in 2022.
Atlanta United essentially locked a playoff spot with tonight's 0-0 draw against New York Red Bulls. This looked to be coach Pineda's plan. Mike and Dave are worried about Pineda putting a stamp on the team, finding our identity and ensuring our players are put in the best position to win heading into the playoffs. Pineda's substitutions seem very wild, and we just don't feel like the team is clicking to enter the MLS cup hot.
