Former MLS midfielder Bobby Warshaw, who now is an analyst for MLSSoccer.com, joined Chris Goforth and Harper Le Bel on Saturday after Atlanta United's 2-1 loss to Real Salt Lake and zeroed in on what the issues are for United and how to fix them.

"​When you're a possession team you use the ball to move the defense and create an opening," said Warshaw. "When you do that you have to take advantage of the openings. I see a team that is good at moving the opposition, but they're not taking advantage of the space they create, which is weird. To me it's very clear why it hasn't been working and I don't understand why De Boer hasn't fixed that. This is the first time I start to get worried because it seems so obvious to me what the problem is, but they haven't fixed it or moved towards fixing it."
