Voice of Atlanta United, Mike Conti, joined Tony and Hugh to talk about the team’s big 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Union on Saturday. Atlanta United was a little bit panicky in the first 20-30 minutes defensively, but they settled into the match nicely, earning a clean sheet.

“I really liked seeing that after breaking down defensively in the final five minutes in Dallas; to come back and get that clean sheet and smothering Philadelphia.” said Conti.

Josef Martinez continues to play lights-out as he is on pace to shatter the MLS scoring record for single season goals.

“For Martinez to be at that goal-a-game pace is really ridiculous. But a striker is only as good as the service he gets. That’s been the story the past couple of weeks; the passing into Martinez has been outstanding.”
