Final Whistle Thoughts
LIKE MANNA FROM HEAVEN. Atlanta United finally took all three points for the first time in 13 matches after the Five Stripes looked creative and aggressive in a 3-2 win over the Crew in Columbus Saturday night.

Add Josef Martinez to this mix and all of a sudden this team seems like it could be very dangerous.
