Atlanta’s return to form against D.C. United has continued, and we are here to break it down. Jason, Adam, and Ben talk about Josef Martinez’s hat trick as well as spend another section talking about D.C.’s defense and their inability to win headers. We discuss the new starters that are needed on the back line, and talk about David Ousted’s contribution to the defensive issues. We end the segment talking about empty spaces all over the field, including the areas that Atlanta’s attackers ran into and the spaces between Wayne Rooney and his teammates.

In the second segment, we discuss the two games up this week, both at Audi Field: Wednesday against the New York Red Bulls and Saturday against the Colorado Rapids. We discuss how good the Red Bulls are this year, and what Chris Armas will do now that Jesse Marsch has taken a paid internship in Germany. We also break down the game of a player who may join Marsch in Germany soon in Tyler Adams. For the Rapids, we break down their roster and specifically talk about Tim Howard’s play at goalkeeper at the moment. Give it a listen!

With your support, we’ve made two big upgrades! The first is that we are producing chapter marks for the segments now, and those should appear directly in your podcast app (or on SoundCloud, if you listen there). The second is that there are now audio transcriptions of the podcast for those who want or need them! They are available on our Internet Archive page only, so you’ll need to go over there to find them; they’re produced by speech recognition software, so they’re not 100% accurate, but they look readable. These upgrades are only possible because of the support we get on Patreon, so if you appreciate these upgrades, consider pitching in.
