No word about injuries and stuff, so I'd assume the same lineup, and this is the last game where Murillo and Fidel are in the 18 before they're off to Russia?

Metro took care of business at home vs NYCFC & won two road games that were kinda 50/50 matchups that I couldve seen us getting 1-2 pts from total.

So, I feel a bit like we are playing with house money heading into ATL. If they win, great, but really Im just hoping they play great, get some experience against a team we might see again in the fall, and whatever happens, Ill live with it, as long as we dont go down there & collapse.

PS, those were our colors first, you unoriginal dicks.

If we somehow win this game, we'll be in pretty good shape.  However, I'd definitely be fine with a point.  I know these guys lost 2-0 to SKC at home but I think they are probably the best team in MLS at this point of the season.

I'd take a draw at Atlanta, although this team only seems capable of winning or losing. (Not that anyone is yearning for the halcyon days of Hans Backe and endless strings of draws.)

That was the case last year too (just two draws through mid-August), and then four draws in a row...

Atlanta is a good team... Curious to see how we do against them.  Personally think it's probably them and us as the best teams right now. Toronto will eventually pull it together.  They are suffering from the CCL hangover and their depth isn't as good as ours.

 

Same lineup.

Agree hopefully play well and test ourselves against a topside. Point would be excellent

I expect a high scoring affair. 4-4 or something ridiculous.

Anybody remember Mo Johnson's tenure as coach?

That just reminds me of Lalas firing Bradley, which was only the second dumbest moment in club history (sacking Bruce was the dumbest).
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

Johnston. Apparently, the T was for Tie!

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Summer 2011 seemed winless. We went from 1st in the East to almost not making the playoffs.

Looking forward to this one. This should be our toughest test thus far. Will be more than happy with a point.

Atlanta on their turf is the hardest match in MLS right now, but this Metro squad still has a good chance at coming away with points. Punch em in the mouth early and keep punching.
