Tonight is the ATLSoccer chat, live on our Facebook page, starting at 8:00 p.m. We’ll be discussing the latest moves by Atlanta United, the landscape ahead of next week’s “Week of Chaos”, and other U.S. soccer news. Bring your questions, tell your friends, and join us tonight.
Check out yesterday’s Peach Pit podcast to hear more about where Atlanta United’s roster stands today and how they might fill the empty slots. Also, I had a chance to interview college soccer scout Andre Sherard about SuperDraft prospects and what direction Atlanta might take in January.
