So we know Atlanta isn’t the worst team in the league now. That’s fine and good.
But now, on two days of rest, the Five Stripes travel up to Philadelphia to play the absolute buzzsaw that is the first in the conference Union, who come in on not one but two consecutive 6-0 wins. This has the potential to go very badly.
Or... it might not? That’s why we watch, I guess. We’ll see if the still clinging to hope Atlanta United side can muster up enough willpower to get an upset (or at least not dramatically lose) the midweek road trip.
