Atlanta United Color Analyst Jason Longshore joined Jon Chuckery and Randy McMichael to preview today’s match against Philadelphia Union.

Longshore on the 1-0 win over Monterrey on Wednesday in CONCACAF, “Monterrey does have a little bit of pressure on them right now because they got their first loss in the Mexican league last night. They are spending more money than anyone in Mexico right now and they have very high expectations. They were conservative (On Wednesday) but I still think Atlanta played well and played more like the team we have expected.”

Longshore on Barco’s play on Wednesday, “You saw more of a staggered setup with Barco dropping into the midfield a little bit more. I thought this was one of Barco’s best matches. I thought he looked great.”

Longshore then talked about Pity Martinez and him adjusting to different types of pitches.

Longshore went on to discuss Philadelphia Union’s struggles and how Atlanta United can capitalize on their issues right now.

Longshore on training time moving forward, “You have the game today, then the international break, then a game and then a week long break. You’re going to be missing guys for the international break. The league break is a chance to get everyone in and train and figure out what you want to do. After this crazy start that week will be crucial for Frank De Boer and this squad moving forward.”
