Five Stripe Final — a podcast/HDAD by J. Sam Jones and yours truly — is back to talk (sadly) about the departure of Leandro Gonzalez Pirez and (gladly) about ANY GOOD NEWS THAT MIGHT HAPPEN TO ATLANTA UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB.

We give you our perspective from covering Leandro Gonzalez Pirez up close and personal and talk about what he meant to the team and the club (hint: he was much more than just a center back).

We also get into the Mathias Villasanti rumors, we dig into Julian Gressel’s contract situation, and we question why we aren’t hearing more rumblings surrounding the ongoing MLS CBA negotiations.
