Atlanta United color Analyst Jason Longshore joined Dukes and Bell Monday to recap the 3-1 win over D.C. United. The guys asked Longshore about Josef Martinez’s big game.

“He has a ridiculous vertical and he is fearless,” Longshore said. "I’m sure he can dunk a basketball. Martinez is scoring every 82.4 minutes. It’s crazy. That is the best scoring rate since David Villa is 2010."

Longshore on Andrew Carleton’s performance: “He beat his defender 1 on 1 and put a great ball in. He did his job.” 

Longshore went on to talk about David Beckham’s interest in one of our front-office personnel members, Paul McDonough. Beckham is interested in bringing McDonough to Miami.

Longshore on Barco’s suspension: “We don’t know what happened. Mike Conti and I had no idea what was going on when we got into the Benz on Saturday. As of right now it does not affect his All-Star appearance but that will be Tata Martino's call."
