#20 - Gabriel Heinze In - 2020 Out - Atlanta United Gets a New Coach

A fresh start for Atlanta United, after a long 2020 and terrible season under FdB and Glass. Dave and Mike talk about what the future might hold in this episode. Hoping everyone has a Happy New Year and ATLUTD is headed in a new direction that reflects the first 2 years of the club.


#19 - Glass is Nearly Empty, Did Frank de Boer Quit for Holland? Moreno and Barco Outlook.

Glass is nearly empty, and his coaching record show it, he is what he is, very below average and over his head in the head coach job.. Oh....And, did Frank de Boer actually quit for the Holland National team gig, because the timing now makes you wonder in hindsight? Moreno and Barco on the field together was less impressive than we would have liked against DC United. We are currently below the playoff line, and our plan seems to have no plan. Where is a new coach to lead us forward, and why...


#18 - Atlanta United is Unwatchable - Pity Martinez is Gone and Barco is next! Who's Driving the Bus?

Atlanta United is currently "Unwatchable"! Pity Martinez is Gone and Barco is next! Who's Driving the Bus? The quality of soccer the last six games has truly been unwatchable on many levels. Luckly, we still love Atlanta United FC, and nobody is getting off the bus, even if Glass takes a quick joy ride. It's hard to compute in the year of Covid-19 what the hell is going on, and selling our big players for record breaking MLS transfer fees is exciting, yet sad, but it's no substitute for good...

#16 S2 Ep5 - Atlanta United Win 2-0 over Nashville and Pity has 2 great goals, but overall performance leaves a lot to desire

The team was not sharp. They did not really play attacking soccer and looked like a FdB team. They did not go forward with purpose to break down Nashville. Pity did have two great goals, but time will tell if that trend will hold steady. Overall performance is a "C" grade from your hosts at ATLONFIRE. Listen and subscribe, We are now on YouTube.

MLS is Back, ATL ON FIRE is Back, but does not want to be…. ATL UTD is terrible. I’m running solo tonight for the first time. How did we do in MLS is Back? 3 games, 3 losses. No points, no goals, simply awful. Maybe we just hate Orlando that much? But seriously, Frank de Boer clearly did not have this team prepared and up for playing. We have no leadership on the field. The commentators even took shots at Frank de Boer and laughed at “total football” when he put Jon Gallagher (Forward) at...

This podcast is a great recap of the last six games where we are 5 and 1 out of the last 6. Enrique Alvarez brings some red wine from Baja and we talk about it all.

The Kids are Alright!. Simon and Anna Katz join the fire to school the old folks on what good coaching means. Pay attention youth coaches, it's about 1 v 1 communication. Give them the pros and cons in their game, and provide milestones for progress. I love the insights and knowledge in this episode.

#5 - Oscar Okwu Joins the Fire as we scratch are heads on Atlanta United Performances

Seven games into the season, we'll discuss the last four games, including CCL match-ups against Monterrey and the two MLS ties with Cincinnati and The Union. Frank De Boer has some work to do, and we'll give him some rope, but the results need to change soon. Now that we can focus on MLS only, we're still optimistic the team can get back to our offensive mode and creating a lot more chances for number 7. We Ready, we still proud, nothing is going to change our positivity.
