Final Whistle Thoughts
That was fun. I personally enjoy it when Atlanta United overpowers weak opponents at home in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, just as the Five Stripes did Wednesday night in a 4-0 win over FC Cincinnati. We were all saying Friday’s win against Orlando made it feel like 2018 again. But a Josef brace, a Kratz-like free kick goal, and an absolute individual moment of brilliance from a star Designated Player REALLY felt like old times. And it feels great.
