Final Whistle Thoughts
Twas a rough day for Atlanta United. The result was not ideal, the performance was subpar, and it appears that captain Brad Guzan has been lost for a significant period of time after being stretchered off in the second half.
The good news: Emerson Hyndman and Luiz Araujo both returned to action, and Caleb Wiley — making his first MLS start — looked dynamic. But overall, it seems like the point in time where Atlanta is going to have to re-group and figure out who they are as a team.
