I smell...the start of another glorious season!

 

I recently read one of Atlanta's chants is "This is Atlanta. You better watch your mouth!"  Mirror UK is calling it the worst chant they've ever heard.

 

For those of us going to game, are we thinking of any kind of signs or banners?  This lame chant is ripe for mockery.

Heres the chants:

Based on his history, you would expect Marsch to start his First XI, but he probably shouldn't given that it's the third game in 10 days and BWP is 31. It will be interesting to see if Marsch has made any adjustments this season to his style.

Judging by the 88th minute BWP/Grella sub and the unused sub last week, I'd guess no. Love Jesse, but the late subs drive me crazy. I hope you're right, but I just don't think he'll discover rotation all of a sudden. And in fairness, 3 games in, it might not even be necessary. We have one game a week for the next 3 months.

Can't wait to read Metrofanatic article on our putrid record on opening day.

For 21 years, I can't remember ever winning the first game.

Here are the openers up to 2011... our last win:

I can see why people don't like soccer.

By some sort of black magic, Atlanta United fans are reaching levels of obnoxiousness only previously seen by Seattle fans.

 

So if we could pummel these fuckheads, it'd be much appreciated.

Just think, next year we'll have to deal with Seattle, Atlanta, NYCFC, and LAFC fans.

Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

Yea, let's coordinate where to meet for pregame drinks?  I got my ticket through ESC. Not sure if they're planning something?

Thought it was interesting that Bovada has us as the favorite to win the MLS Cup.

ESPN had us as favorite to win MLS Cup in the playoffs. We're better off adapting the Devils mentality. Everyone should think we stink and will never win.

Hah, yeah exactly.  People around here talk about how we haven't done anything to improve while other teams have.  Vegas (true outsider with no dog in the fight) sees us as the top team.  

 

We were the best team in the league last year so it makes sense, but we were also playing a different formation that may fit the team better.  Time will tell though.
