On Wednesday Atlanta United lost on the road to the Philadelphia Union… and that’s about it. The eternal storyline of have glimpses of quality, giving up easy goals, and ultimately losing really isn’t much of a surprise to anyone at this point.
Will a national audience see the same repeating story once again this evening? The Timbers are no Philadelphia, but an always tough environment will be difficult for the Five Stripes to get a result in, especially following the midweek game. All we can do is watch and hope for a different result. (I fully accept that I am insane at this point.)
