Another jam-packed week of MLS action, with every team in the fray (sometimes twice).
- Atlanta United
The defending champs have been fantastic the last few weeks — wins over LA, NYCFC, Club America, and Portland. They seem to have fixed a lot of their issues. With that said, I’m holding off for another couple weeks before I trust them.
- Columbus Crew SC
One thing Caleb Porter has always been good at coaching is neutralizing the opposing defensive midfielder. Almost every team builds through the defensive midfielder — eliminate that guy, and they don’t have answers. It would be an effective strategy against at least half the teams in the league.
- D.C. United
D.C. United are officially on the bubble. Their five-point cushion is measly considering their current form and remaining schedule. We gave Wayne Rooney credit last year for how he galvanized the team; he needs to be that guy again.
Matt Doyle has brought up an interesting and valid concern about LAFC a few times: Do you trust Adama Diomande as your starting striker in the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs?
My answer: Yes. He’s absolutely talented enough. It looks to me like he’s been finding his place in the team’s system. It looks like he’s settled into it more in the last two months.
