FIVE STRIPE FINAL: Is Atlanta United really an MLS Cup contender?

New, 6 comments

Five Stripe Final is back to discuss Atlanta United’s dominance over Orlando and the new world order.

MLS: Orlando City SC at Atlanta United FC Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

After a dominant win over Orlando City last Friday night, Atlanta United truly feels like a club reborn thanks to the addition of what looks to be a potent new Designated Player in Luiz Araujo and a perfect fit at the helm in head coach Gonzalo Pineda.

Sam and Joe talk talked about what they saw against Orlando, the highly anticipated goal-fest that could happen tonight against FC Cincinnati, and broader takeaways in this week’s show.

Five Stripe Final also sat down this week with some old Atlanta United friends, former captain Michael Parkhurst and left back Greg Garza, that can be heard by patrons who support the show and receive weekly bonus episodes with guests.
