When Atlanta United suffered its first loss ever to Orlando City in a 3-1 defeat over the weekend, it seemed as though the season can’t get much worse. But was the play really that bad?

Josh Bagriansky joins Joe Patrick this wek on Five Stripe Final for a special Overlap Edition to talk about what we’ve seen on the field from the Five Stripes both this past weekend and overall since the MLS restarted in local markets.

Topics in the latest episode include:

  • George Bello finally able to show why he’s such a highly-rated prospect.
  • Glimpses from Jurgen Damm, Cubo Torres, Ezequiel Barco and Pity Martinez on the field together is encouraging.
  • Can Eric Remedi be this team’s primary holding midfielder?
  • Is there currently a void in on-field leadership?
