D.C. United versus Atlanta United preview, plus praise for Ian Harkes: Filibuster podcast

Atlanta fans are very confident

After falling prey to the ravages of time yesterday, Filibuster has conquered its oppressors and is here for you. We talk about D.C. United 2-2 draw with the New England Revolution and how they were able to do it depleted from a slew of injuries that the team could not anticipate. We talk about the goals, especially Lee Nguyen’s goal, as well has the team’s troubling tendency to give up goals early in each half. We have to praise Ian Harkes and his play, before talking about the role of Jared Jeffrey and who we want to see start in defensive midfield against Atlanta United.

Speaking of Atlanta United, we bring back Rob Usry in the second segment to talk about the interlopers United. We ask him about the status of the team, the injury to Josef Martinez, and the centrality of Miguel Almiron. We wonder whether or not we will see Andrew Carleton in MLS this year, and ask how annoyed Atlanta fans are that their soccer team won’t be the ones opening the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. We end by inquiring about their defense, the play of Julian Gressel and Carlos Carmona, and how to gameplan against them. Give it a listen!
