So can they go through with a draw against Columbus next week?

Ugly but Ill take it
Jansen not good with cross but heck of a save
Parker showed why he was a sub
Needed more possession at the end - wouldve thought we would have more with Omir and stroud out there in fresh legs
Win is a win

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

Good win, still stand by my take that this roster just isn't good enough.

Need a real top class MLS ST, which tbh isn't really difficult to find.

No, too many permutations can leave them out.

 

You can even be out if you go 2-1 if there are three 2-1 teams in 5 of the 6 groups...

Parker was awful coming on for sure. Not a huge fan of Tarek as a regular starter but maybe he'll make it work.

Very good win though. We had a lot of real good chances.

Pendant doesn't seem to offer a ton offensively but he looks really good defensively.

Muyl I thought was probably the only sub who came on and did some good things. Some not so good things as well, per the usual but he really causes some issues.

Jensen is funny. He looks kind of odd and nothing he does is pretty but the dude consistently comes up with some good saves. He also seems to screw up and give up 1 good chance against.

Tom Barlow hasnt proven to be an MLS player to this point.

Tarek should continue to start over Parker.

Should have had 2 or 3 goals, Atlanta had a ton of possession but didnt create much.

Huge to get the 3 points out of our toughest game of the group stage and the added cherry on top being that it counts towards our regular season record, providing there is actually a season after this.

We were outplayed from a possession perspective but that's not the end all and be all. We needed to put away one of those chances (we had 2 other obvious chances apart from the valot goal).

Good win but we still need some work.

Props to buffalo wild wings in Secaucus for having us as the only game on the whole (Outdoor) place.
