92.9 The Game Soccer Analyst joined Dukes and Bell to preview the Atlanta United/DC United game tomorrow. Longshore said, "I am not expecting for DC United to sit back. This is a more attack-minded DC group. Especially if Wayne Rooney is starting." Longshore on Wayne Rooney, "He is a polarizing figure. He is a very very good player who has had a very very good career." He went on to say that as Rooney has gotten older he has adapted his game.


Longshore on Eric Remedi, "I think he could be on the 18 tomorrow. I think this would be a good match for him to play him but he has only been training with the team for  a week." Longshore mentioned possible taking Gressel out of the lineup and Dukes and Bell were not fan of that idea.


Longshore, "Sometimes Atlanta forces the extra pass and the 5 Stripes need to find an equilibrium between passing too much and  shooting too much."


Longhsore on where Atlanta is at this point in the season, "I think there honestly about where they expected but the league is better overall than I expected. This is going to be an incredible stretch run with 7 quality teams."​
