Atlanta United finally returned to our TV screens Saturday night against New York Red Bulls for a match that counted toward the regular season table, which could only mean one thing: a disappointing result.
In this case, it was a frustrating 0-1 loss after Florian Valot scored the way-too-easy winner in the 5th minute of the match. The ensuing 85 minutes was filled with humidity, hard work, and chances gone awry. Manuel Castro couldn’t sort his feet out to finish one of a couple golden chances, and late-game sub Adam Jahn was denied a late winner by a dude who looks like a character from Salute Your Shorts who’s all grown up.
Joe and Sam “break down” the game, what Frank de Boer and Brad Guzan had to say, and speculate about what kind of changes we might see when the Five Stripes get back at it (we hope) on Thursday at 9 a.m. against FC Cincinnati.
