A Very Tough Way To Start 2021.

Coming off a disappointing and unacceptable 2020 season, Atlanta United has made some changes to their roster. The real question: will those changes help create a style and pace of play resulting in goals? While Bryce Leslie drills deep with his analysis of tomorrow's game at Orlando City, I will offer up my top of mind thoughts for what should be a tough 90 minutes in Orlando.


Playing any match at Exploria Stadium, even with limited attendance, is a very tough ask.

Will the two CCL matches help Atlanta United?

Josef Martinez, in Tuesday night's match, looked no more than 75%. Was he holding back for tomorrow?

Where do Atlanta United's goals come from? What goes different tomorrow versus their two CCL matches?

Orlando City may be missing one of two of their starting center backs. How does Gabriel Heinze exploit this?

The second ball battle: Orlando City's Pereyra, Urso, Perea, and Rosell are big time ball winners.

Is Nani 100% fit? Does Pato show his magic from years past?


I will be in attendance for tomorrow's match. It should be a good war to watch.
