#60 - USA World Cup Begins in Qatar - USMNT Draws 1-1 vs Wales

The US Men's National Team gets a 1-1 draw vs Wales. A tough PK let's us down and we only get 1 point. USA vs England is up next and Harry Kane might not be 100% or even available. Qatar Offside technology proves to work, and it works so well, we just need to agree on the definition of what body parts should define offside.. Mike gets firey on the subject. Atlanta United hires a new President and CEO. We talk about it all.

No Zack Steffen, and no Pefolk? We need red win and some Red White and Blue to start pumping. We're just 10 days away from the start of World Cup baby! Hey, It's only been 8 years. Also, we talk a little MLS Cup Final. Epic game LAFC vs Philadelphia Union. 3-3 in ET, PK meltdown. Oh, and Josef...


#58 - Atlanta United 2022 Season Ending Review

We talk about the season ending Press Conference with Gonzalo Pineda and Carlos Bocanegra. We review the starting lineups and formations through the 2022 season and why Pineda clearly picked favorites over "talent" and basic coaching logic. We had diversity and injuries, but it was not an excuse for the team finishing at the bottom of the eastern conference table. World Cup starts in less than 30 days and we are ready for the France to lose in the first stage of knock out rounds.


#57 - Josef Martínez Goalazo Bicycle Kick - We are Upsidedown “Arroz Con Pollo” Atlanta United Short of Playoffs

One more year of Pineda coaching Atlanta United, pushing the wrong system. 2022 was a long season and 2023 is going to be even longer, because we know what we are going to get. Dave breaks down the clear mistakes we are making tactically from zone defense on corners (defensively) to leaving 1 player back on corners (offensively) to pressing our fullbacks up for no good reason. Ghhhhhrrrrr! We've talked about it all, over and over again!

#56 - Atlanta United Extend Commitment to Gonzalo Pineda into 2023 for Reasons Unknown

We talk a lot about Atlanta United's win over Toronto FC's 4-2. It was great evening at the benz, but scary for a soccer brainiac, if you are Dave. Why play 1 man back when we are up 3-2 in the 80th min, only if you are crazy Pineda! Park the bus. No thanks he says, let's gamble the season. Purata's hattrick was worth it I guess.... Shambolic. We talk about it all.


#55 - Atlanta United 4-1 Loss to Philadelphia Union Ends Hope Even with Win over DC United - Pineda must go!

Atlanta United 4-1 Loss to Philadelphia Union Ends Hope Even with a Win at home over DC United - Pineda must go in our opnion and he's made his bed with continual bad decisions and continual starts fo RRN. Who is driving the bus, Boca Boca? Who could even sack Gonzalo Pineda with any authority? We don't know. But we need a replacement ASAP.


#54 - Atlanta United Draw Columbus Crew 2-2

Dave and Mike discuss the big problems of Atlanta United and Gonzalo Pineda. The draw against Columbus puts the playoff hopes on final life support. How do we go into 2023? The future is very foggy for Atlanta United fans.


#53 - Atlanta United vs New York Red Bulls (1-2) Loss after a Draw vs FCC and Win over Seattle

Atlanta United's Playoff hopes are all but done at this point. A win over Seattle, draw to FCC and loss to New York Red Bulls make the mountain steep to get 48 points or more. Pineda does not seem to have a plan and we are not sure what the future holds, but Mike and Dave both want to get Tata back. He'll be available after the world cup. Bring back TATA. Start the chant 17s!!!


#52 - Atlanta United’s Last 5 Games Produces 1 Win and 2 Goals - Is Gonzalo Pineda Done?

Atlanta United lose 4-0 vs Austin FC in the worst home game ever. A little hope during Real Salt Lake, but the run up to Seattle makes fans want to puke. Gonzalo Pineda keeps shifting and can't get it right.. The last 5 games produced 1 win and only 2 goals with some of the best attacking players in the MLS. We talk about it all and talk Women's Euro's, Apple TV and red wine.


#51 - Atlanta United - Toast to Dom Dwyer - Recap Loss 2-1 to Red Bulls and Draw 2-2 vs NYCFC

Is Dom Dwyer leaving Atlanta United? If so, we toast his points and Mike Dobbs admits he's wrong? Dom provided value this season and perhaps enough to provide a trade in the summer window to get a solid defender? We don't know, this is breaking rumor news. We talk about it all including the late loss to New York Red Bulls and a late draw vs NYFC were Dom proves 4.8% of his touches on the ball produce a goal. ATLONFIRE Trivia for Dom Dwyer.


#50 - Atlanta United - Mid-Season Reality Check -ATLONFIRE Has The Solution

Atlanta United - Mid-Season Reality Check -ATLONFIRE Has The Solution. Gonzalo Pineda needs to play to our roster's strength and that means a ldefensive posture that wins the ball at midfield and gets it up quickly to the MAMA talent who is designed to score. Fullbacks need to be FULL BACKS, stay home. The new MX goalkeeper and centerback will be key to the future as well, and we need Sosa to make a return. We talk about it all.


#49 -Atlanta United 4 Game Recap -Will a Participation Trophy Turn the Tide in our MLS Cup Ambisions?

Dave and Mike get into some Dom Dwyer debats and we talk about it all. Nashville thunderstorm delays and a lucky draw. Bad bad loss against the Crew. The biggest trophy of the clubs history vs Pachuca? And Gary Neville need to pack his bags as we beat Miami 2-0. Apple TV an MLS bank a deal..


#48 - Atlanta United Draw vs New England and Loss to Nashville in US Cup

Atlanta United sees Almada, Moreno and Araujo clicking little by little. But, the big mistakes are still hurting us and Gonzalo Pineda needs to start enforcing some changes. We started to see Araujo out on his natural left side which is great, but need to shift away from Zone D. Dave brings some stats as we hit 1/3 into the season. What's working and what's not by the numbers. And Mike bring ATLONFIRE Trivia to bore us with Offside rules and applogies to the internet.


#47 - Atlanta United Win 4-1 over Chicago Fire - Ronaldo Hat Trick in First Half

Atlanta gets a much needed win vs a poor Chicago Fire team. Mike and Dave walk through the highlights and have some worries about Pineda's system. That said, we are very talented, even with a terrible injury to Miles Robinson, ending his season and hopes for the World Cup. We talk about it all, including Women's professional soccer, EPL and CCL.


#46 - Atlanta United Losing Streak - Miami (2-1) and Montreal (2-1)- Power Outage

Atlanta United needs to move away from zone defense when the other teams have a set kick.. Set pieces are a big problem that needs to be resolved. We go down to Miami and can't get it done with 66% possession and more talent on the field. Montreal yields the same result with 62% possession. Mike can't keep his computer powered up and the podcast goes a little wonky.


#45 - Atlanta United Loss vs Charlotte and Draw vs Cincinnati

Atlanta United Charlotte Loss and Draw vs Cincinnati. We recap both games and talk about it all. Red Wine, VAR, injuries and 3 games with no goals. Atlanta United is still 4th in the Eastern Conference. While things are not clicking, we still have a lot of hope. Brad Guzan perhaps had his last moment as a Five Stripe, and we are wishing him the best. Martinez gets another surgery. Two ruptured achilles in two weeks, not saying it's Aliens, but it was Aliens.


#44 - Atlanta United Snatch a Win Over DC United in OT - ATLONFIRE

A tie that feels like a win? Atlanta United FC draw 3-3 vs CF Montreal at home after Dom Dwyer gets a red card in the 66 minute. Dave and Mike break down the shambolic goal that Montreal scored to make it 1-1. Dave rants on Pineda's set up off the corner, and Mike points the finger at Ronald Hernandez. Thiago Almada scores a gem, and Lennon closes the deal with a bit of luck. We talk about it all.


#42 - Atlanta United 2-1 Win Over Charlotte FC - Last Minute Winner from Jake Mulraney

Dave and Mike talk about the squeaky bum win over Charlotte FC at home at the Benz. We still need some new chants to fire up the crowd and get people standing. Dave breaks down the corner kick zone defense and we praise Moreno’s amazing deep ball to Jake to put the final dagger into the Charlotte chest. We talked about it all.


#41- Hot / Cold - Atlanta United Game Opener Win Sporting KC and Rapids Loss

Atlanta United Trivia is back and we learn a little about the MLS growth and soccer potential in the USA. Dave brings a great bottle of Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon so we can talk about it all. Including, our home opener win against Sporting Kansas City and our rough loss against Colorado Rapids. Without our starters, Dave is happy about Pineda playing it proper from the whistle.
