Final Whistle Quick Thoughts

  • I promise the headline isn’t a typo. Atlanta United have conquered their kryptonite and beaten the New York Red Bulls in a regular season match.
  • It was a surprisingly pragmatic performance, but one that was desperately needed to solve the dilemma that was getting a favorable result against a team you consistently struggle with. It wasn’t pretty, but playing that way has never gone well with the style the Red Bulls play.
  • It’s not fair to call Thiago Almada’s performance poor as he has some brilliant moments in the match. However, there were some uncharacteristically shocking decisions made by him that could’ve cost the team dearly.
  • Overall, you take the three points however you can against the Red Bulls and worry about style points later.
