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.

Start the chant 17s!!!
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.
Is Dom Dwyer leaving Atlanta United? If so, we toast his points and Mike Dobbs admits he's wrong? Dom provided value this season and perhaps enough to provide a trade in the summer window to get a solid defender? We don't know, this is breaking rumor news.

Atlanta United - Mid-Season Reality Check -ATLONFIRE Has The Solution. Gonzalo Pineda needs to play to our roster's strength and that means a ldefensive posture that wins the ball at midfield and gets it up quickly to the MAMA talent who is designed to score.

Atlanta United sees Almada, Moreno and Araujo clicking little by little. But, the big mistakes are still hurting us and Gonzalo Pineda needs to start enforcing some changes. We started to see Araujo out on his natural left side which is great, but need to shift away from Zone D.
