MLS is Back, ATL ON FIRE is Back, but does not want to be…. ATL UTD is terrible. I’m running solo tonight for the first time. How did we do in MLS is Back? 3 games, 3 losses. No points, no goals, simply awful. Maybe we just hate Orlando that much? But seriously, Frank de Boer clearly did not have this team prepared and up for playing. We have no leadership on the field. The commentators even took shots at Frank de Boer and laughed at “total football” when he put Jon Gallagher (Forward) at left center back when Meza got hurt. Commentators are not typically going to call out senstive things that did not happen, like a plane that was supposed to fly over the stadium with a “Frank De Boer Out” Banner. Pity Martinez continues to embarrass himself. Barco is clearly a talent, but he should just ask to be transferred in the next window, so he does not waste away at this club and league. Overall, MLS has a lot of issues, and the fact that the Crew was just “okay” speaks volumes of where the quality level is in general.

This podcast is a great recap of the last six games where we are 5 and 1 out of the last 6. Enrique Alvarez brings some red wine from Baja and we talk about it all. Frank De Boer is on fire, even if he's under fire. It's clear the Five Stripes have some real talent, it showed in an important game against NYFC...we might have some real ability to compete for the cup again.... Vamos ATL!

The Kids are Alright!. Simon and Anna Katz join the fire to school the old folks on what good coaching means. Pay attention youth coaches, it's about 1 v 1 communication. Give them the pros and cons in their game, and provide milestones for progress. I love the insights and knowledge in this episode. Anna and Simon take on Trivia with no fear and we talk about the US Women's World Cup, celebration protocols, and more. Apologies in advance as this recording has a few glitches and several audio blackouts. I need another computer....

Dave & Mike are joined by the hostile guest Leah Dobbs to talk about our soggy loss in Ohio, the win in New England and the tough loss to FC Dallas at the Benz. We discuss each player and grade them so far, but have some hope no that chances are being created. Atlanta United has 28 games left, how can we turn this around?

Seven games into the season, we'll discuss the last four games, including CCL match-ups against Monterrey and the two MLS ties with Cincinnati and The Union. Frank De Boer has some work to do, and we'll give him some rope, but the results need to change soon. Now that we can focus on MLS only, we're still optimistic the team can get back to our offensive mode and creating a lot more chances for number 7. We Ready, we still proud, nothing is going to change our positivity.
