Not only did Atlanta United get a very impressive win over Houston on Wednesday night, but they also found another strong member to add to their midfield.

Atlanta United analyst Jason Longshore discussed just how deep this United squad has become as they mix and match their lineup during the recent run of injuries.

"I don't think there's going to be a regular starting 11," said Longshore. "You have a deeper squad then ever before, but when you get Bello, Barco, Villalba back and Pity and Meram competing for starting spots, it's going to be a difficult decision on what your starting 11 and starting 18 is and that increases competition across the board."​

Jason also discussed the team adding Mo Adams to the roster and, after being used as a sub last night, what he can bring to the midfield.

"He's a different kind of central midfielder than they already have," said the radio analyst. "Mo Adams is a guy who is known for his defensive work. Very good at shutting down No. 10's; a very active defender."
