Atlanta is great nostolgia: it's like watching the old East German league that was rigged for the team of the Stassi to always win.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

Etienne, Abang or White up front in place of BWP?

I say start Abang. If you need a extra goal late go to a diamond mid with two strikers and throw White in.

Do everything to keep a clean sheet and then go for it late.

I would start Etienne. Hopefully the goal he scored will give him confidence to score some more

Etienne came in and changed the game against Toronto. BWP looked frustrated with a few of DE7s decisions, but he wont be on the pitch against Atlanta, so...

Do Atlanta's center backs also have a habit of simply falling down like clumsy toddlers? If so I'm confident Etienne can get it done. If not, we might be in trouble.

He was active and involved in a lot of the play, outside of his goal.

Looks good to me. Although Im fine with any of the front 3 in any position. If they go this way I think this should be a fairly fluid front 3
I would like to see 10 minutes of Abang

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Etienne had a good game against Toronto, I think he's gotta start with BWP out.

I think this game is a good spot to start Muyl. I dont think he has enough skill to be effective when teams sit back, but thats not Atlantas style, so no concern there. And, Alex will be good at disrupting the Atlanta attack. Maybe Royer up top and Muyl in his spot?

Also, wouldnt mind seeing Derrick on the wing over RZA, who has cooled down recently.
