#61 - USMNT World Cup Review Qatar Review - US loss to Netherlands 3-1 and lookback at England and Iran

December 5, 2022

USMNT loss to Netherlands in round of 16. The 3-1 result was not bad, but our defense was shambolic at a few moments that cost us big. Our draw against England and win against Iran were proud moments. We talk about it all.  Join the fire!

The US Men's National Team gets a 1-1 draw vs Wales. A tough PK let's us down and we only get 1 point.  USA vs England is up next and Harry Kane might not be 100% or even available. Qatar Offside technology proves to work, and it works so well, we just need to agree on the definition of what body parts should define offside.. Mike gets firey on the subject. Atlanta United hires a new President and CEO. We talk about it all.

We talk about the US Men's National Team roster that is now set for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Mike and Dave discuss their prefered starting 11 and what mistakes Greg made along the way to Qatar.  No Zack Steffen, and no Pefolk? We need red win and some Red White and Blue to start pumping. We're just 10 days away from the start of World Cup baby! Hey, It's only been 8 years. Also, we talk a little MLS Cup Final. Epic game LAFC vs Philadelphia Union. 3-3 in ET, PK meltdown. Oh, and Josef Martinez for ATLUTD, He Gone!

#58 - Atlanta United 2022 Season Ending Review

October 25, 2022

We talk about the season ending Press Conference with Gonzalo Pineda and Carlos Bocanegra. We review the starting lineups and formations through the 2022 season and why Pineda clearly picked favorites over "talent" and basic coaching logic.  We had diversity and injuries, but it was not an excuse for the team finishing at the bottom of the eastern conference table. World Cup starts in less than 30 days and we are ready for the France to lose in the first stage of knock out rounds.

October 6, 2022

One more year of Pineda coaching Atlanta United, pushing the wrong system. 2022 was a long season and 2023 is going to be even longer, because we know what we are going to get. Dave breaks down the clear mistakes we are making tactically from zone defense on corners (defensively) to leaving 1 player back on corners  (offensively) to pressing our fullbacks up for no good reason. Ghhhhhrrrrr! We've talked about it all, over and over again!

September 27, 2022

We talk a lot about Atlanta United's win over Toronto FC's 4-2. It was great evening at the benz, but scary for a soccer brainiac, if you are Dave. Why play 1 man back when we are up 3-2 in the 80th min, only if you are crazy Pineda! Park the bus. No thanks he says, let's gamble the season. Purata's hattrick was worth it I guess.... Shambolic.  We talk about it all.

Atlanta United 4-1 Loss to Philadelphia Union Ends Hope Even with a Win at home over DC United - Pineda must go in our opnion and he's made his bed with continual bad decisions and continual starts fo RRN.  Who is driving the bus, Boca Boca? Who could even sack Gonzalo Pineda with any authority? We don't know. But we need a replacement  ASAP.

 Dave and Mike discuss the big problems of Atlanta United and Gonzalo Pineda.  The draw against Columbus puts the playoff hopes on final life support. How do we go into 2023? The future is very foggy for Atlanta United fans.

August 18, 2022

Atlanta United's Playoff hopes are all but done at this point. A win over Seattle, draw to FCC and loss to New York Red Bulls make the mountain steep to get 48 points or more. Pineda does not seem to have a plan and we are not sure what the future holds, but Mike and Dave both want to get Tata back. He'll be available after the world cup.  Bring back TATA. Start the chant 17s!!!

August 4, 2022

Atlanta United lose 4-0 vs Austin FC in the worst home game ever.  A little hope during Real Salt Lake, but the run up to Seattle makes fans want to puke. Gonzalo Pineda keeps shifting and can't get it right.. The last 5 games produced 1 win and only 2 goals with some of the best attacking players in the MLS. We talk about it all and talk Women's Euro's, Apple TV and red wine.
