Jeff remembered what it was like to win, got tired of losing, and decided to score (with help from Barco).
Nashville DP Hany Mukhtar scored Nashville’s second after a sloppy, shoot-your-self-in-the-foot giveaway in the 29th minute.
Another shoot-your-self-in-the-foot giveaway sequence happened ten minutes before halftime, courtesy of Brooks Lennon and ball watching in Atlanta’s penalty area.
Nashville, an expansion team, put the fourth past Atlanta in the 56th minute.
Adam Jahn, a winger that is definitely not a striker, set up George Bello to give Atlanta a lifeline in the 61st minute.
- It’s incredibly frustrating to see goals conceded in the manner that Atlanta conceded tonight. Nashville’s second and third goals came from mistakes that are shocking to see at this level. Atlanta did itself no favors, and Nashville punished Atlanta for their mistakes.
- This team needs a rest, and luckily Atlanta will have a week to rest and prepare for Atlanta’s next match.
