Darren Eales joined Dukes and Bell Tuesday for his weekly segment with the guys Eales.

“What a great week it was," said Eales. "I still haven’t recovered from the San Jose game, that game was pretty crazy.”

When asked about the miraculous comeback in San Jose, down 3-1 in the second half...

“It was a key moment for us, they did show that no-quit, to play to the final whistle," said Eales. "I think in some season’s things happen that give you that this could be something special, and that to me was that moment.”

Eales once again addressed the Tata Martino contract situation.

“I’ve said it before, we’re having a great season and Tata is enjoying himself and we’re hopeful we can get him signed,” the Atlanta United president.

Darren talked about the MLS playoff format.

“Six teams make the playoff but the top two get a bye," said Eales. "You go into a two-leg series where home is at home which is considered an advantage. We will miss the wildcard game so we will be playing on the weekend where are opponent will be playing a game in the middle of that week.”
