Another busy week of MLS action is upon us as Atlanta United heads up to New England for a rematch against the Revolution. They’ll return home to take on Orlando City before breaking for the Leagues Cup, so the Scarves and Spikes guys are set for back-to-back shows this week.
On Tuesday night, Tyler, Tommy, and Sydney set down to discuss the prior away win against Montreal, the newest transfer rumor about Saba Lobjanidze, and dive into the prep for Wednesday night’s New England Revolution match. They were joined by Apple TV/MLS commentator Jaime Macias and discussed how Atlanta can get the better of the Revs this time around, what’s working with their back-three formation, the latest on Lionel Messi...and the best Ecuadorian food you have to try.
