Joseph Martinez, Garth, Carlos Bocas discussed on ESPN FC



To see their guy and you know what landing united fans. They love Joseph Martinez. They're going to see their guy go to a, I don't know, really rival pseudo rivalry. Conference rival, I said pseudo rival in inter Miami. They're not going to be happy. Carlos bocas attempting to explain why he allowed this player to go to arrival. Doesn't it? It makes sense if you're talking, if this is Carlos book a negra talking to fire away, he's talking to the fans. He's talking to the Atlanta fans. Where it doesn't make sense. That's why you asked me, is he telling truth? Yes, he's telling the truth. He could have done all that. They could have done all that. But get lost because why would you even say it? Well, you're just going to anger and rile up the fan base even more. Now, let me tell you something, okay? Garth I agree coming to Atlanta United is a game changer for the fans is a game changer for that ownership for the organization for Gonzalo Pineda. But the biggest game changer is for Carlos bocanegra. There is credibility that comes with Garth arguably. Let him do what he does. College buchan has been taking a lot of heat over the years.

More Joseph, more Joseph. I think fans would have understood. This would not have been the first team to say, sorry, legend, we're not gonna send you to our rivals. Sorry, sorry. You can go somewhere else in MLS, but you know, try Western Conference team. Or somebody we don't really care about, right? Something we have no geographic Atlanta fans. I think they might. I think they might care when they see Joseph Martinez in an inner Miami shirt. I'll tell you that much. All right, let's focus in on enter Miami. Do you think Joseph Martinez is an upgrade? Pretty Joseph ACL tear and 2020. Today, dealing the reality of today. That's the thing. That's the issue. So with Joseph Martinez comes a certain level of turmoil of havoc. The
