Meh, ATL has struggled against the better MLS teams with Martinez, Nagbe is still out with a long term injury, and their big signing this year hasnt been great and isnt gelling with the team.
I would say Atlanta could stomach a Martinez loss better than we can stomach a BWP loss. Without BWP we're left with...Abang(?) as our lone striker. They still have Almiron and Nagbe providing service to Villalba in their attack. They probably won't be dropping 4 to 5 a game, but they'd still score a bunch.
Alluring is probably the best player in the league, but a loss of the leagues top goa scorer is going to hurt them, at least close to what BWPs loss would hurt us.
Thats not an excuse for Red Bull to leave the 3rd DP slot open. Once Valot went down, they needed to make a sizable move to replace him. Andreas Ivan doesnt seem like thats the move, but well see.
