"Own. This goes much deeper than that. So i don't know but it's going solid. It's a step in the right direction. Because he's a very capable coach he's going to be hard to accept a lot of atlanta united fans. I think is a very good coach. But this goes much deeper in deir eales carlos book negative and what they've not done since dot the montano. I think we have to just accept at this point that that dot com martino atlanta united was was lightning in a bottle. I don't think that's coming back ever and that's kinda sad for the people of atlanta because they had it as good as they're going to have. I don't know when they're going to get back to that. You mentioned aaron ails you mentioned carlos. Can i think it's absolutely fair to to point the finger at them. They missed on not just head. Coaching hires but also big signings. And now we see atlanta united as we mentioned on the last show getting turned away. Not just by coaches but by players Who they're trying to track down the guilty party to me the other concern here for atlanta united. If i if. I'm pointing fingers herk what about the players. I think these players got very accustomed to. How do i say this. Some of the freedoms that they were afforded under the martino and they've not been able to adjust and then now had multiple managers. Who whatever you want to say about the or whatever you wanna say about hindsight they they did have some track record of success before they got to atlanta and neither of these coaches have been able to get through to this dressing room. At what point do we start to say. Hey this is. On the players you constantly have player turnover and yukon rip apart. What is the starting lineup. How can you blame the players. Look at the atlanta united success years with dino brag zahn. Michael parker's Gonzalez beat you. Had you had in the middle llorente way. It's darren sorry nagy. Then you go go go joseph martinez were those players the gun you ripped apart. What was the spying ripped apart. What was the sole this team. And you're trying to plug them in here. You're trying to plug them in their throw money. Here throw money. They're thinking that's the solution when you had an actual actual roster. It's going to take time. You can just overnight. Constructed team atlanta united then in action herk over the weekend. Nice little match up to.

"Gonna see if not the exact same lineup. We saw against canada very close to mcintyre joining us here on cough side so dug up. I wanted to switch gears to what happened when united f c in the past few days. With gabriel heintze. He is gone now as their manager. After was just seventeen games. Total in charge and you have a column up at at fox. Dot com with a couple of quotes. Here that are just jarring The first one being the tactics and soccer side are one thing but there was so much going on off field. The players were mentally drained on a daily basis. One source inside. The club said another quote. It was hell every day for six months. That's another source of heinz's tenure. So with that being the case and with that in mind i guess my initial question is darren eales carlos boccanegra when they hired this guy. Did they know what they were signing up for they. They certainly should have known andrew in opinion. I mean this is a guy that speaking seven figure salary. He's a well known name. He you know as a player. We watched him play for manchester united for real madrid You would think that some of this would come up in the vetting process. You would you. Would you would think it would. It doesn't seem like based on what we've seen the last few days that that it was a secret even coming in and you can also argue that. If some of this stuff was going on very early in a why why wasn't there a change made even sooner. If you're talking about you know to the point where you know the team medical staff has to step in. And say hey. You can't do this. I mean that's a huge red flag. So you know. I believe it was. It was handled. You know the i to handle internally But from from every person. I've spoken to. They've said that gabriel was just not not willing to give an inch not compromise. It's pretty shocking. That was made and and just went up in flames so quickly and end. It does fall at the feet of carlos bocanegra. Darren eales i mean. They're they're the guys that hired gabriel heinz a and it comes on the heels of when we saw with Another horrible fit. Who was fired less than a year ago. Guys i mean this is too high profile. International coaches you know. They've had an had to get rid of in in less than twelve months. So you know. There's it's obvious that You know those were major major failures and yeah the buck stops with the guys at the at the top of the the leadership charted at a united. I wanna talk a little bit. About about egos. And on balkan agra really because it seems to me they they got a tight entitled martino. They got this Contains a very very well You know well experienced manager and they struck gold and they tried to deviate away from that with franken bore and then they went back to this. Be elsa school of management with gabriella like he. He ticked all the boxes in that sense. you get the sense that they know what exactly they're doing right now and i don't mean to be disrespectful to either. Them bought the fact that they got off to such a a good start with tom. Martino and then you know the pivot to frank. Deport made no sense to anybody and then they try and scramble to get back to that original plants. I mean what can we expect next from them. Are they going to. Are they going to now. Go back to a more. A more placid european style coach are what's happening there. It's a it's a great question you know. My my early agents are that they're looking outside the country again. Which is is curious. And in a way atlanta's been a victim of its own success. I mean i think they. There was an element of of of luck involves certainly with what what happened. The first few years everything they did it everything that deals in boca negra touched turned to gold. Martino was was a coup Any came in and he showed unlike gabriel heinz in folks inside the cup of pointed this out. You know there were there. Were some growing pains. tina was well with he did show a willingness to be flexible and and to learn to evolve in adapted his environment. At least a little bit and you know what. There was some friction behind the scenes. I think with with between martinez in boca negra that that sort of led And probably feels as well. But i've heard Connecticut and did not have a good relationship by the time. It's not left there And i and. I think that that's why there was. You know there was such a drastic change to go to a completely different. You know personality Frank debare and yes. I mean to go back. Go back to a south american coach to go back to another argentine Klein's of what you know the personality wise. He's completely different from from soccer point of view. He's completely different as well as the great thing about those early atlanta united teams. Were how the way they attacked abandoned and and much of that was to do with. Miguel miranda who is just such a livewires player. He'd pick the ball up at midfield and he'd just go and he puts on their heels and there were so exciting. And then you know. It's a more defensive style on Again a victim of their success. They sell you. Don't tat that goes to mexico to the to the mexican national team. Arirang gets sold for a nice profit to the family and they bring in the reigning south american player of the year pizzi martinez to replace him but again completely different kinds of player. Didn't and you know it's hard to get that mix right. i mean. It's the most difficult thing in sports. And you know it just. It didn't work out at under damore and and you know when you look at at gabby hines. You're right. he's from that school. Which is defensive minded. You know it. Just i mean. That's that's what it is they press. They sit and they do they. They make it. They make life miserable on the opponent rather than taking the game to them. I mean it just. It doesn't make a lot of sense when you when you when you think about it and you think about the personnel in the results on the field. Speak for themselves. I mean you know. There's a combination here. It's an obviously ones related to the other players are miserable and not performing while you know but if the team was playing while it a positive you know exciting system than you know that can pay for over a lot of this sort of stuff You know that coaches poll. I don't know if it would have been able to overcome some of these horror stories that we've heard But yeah it's in hindsight when you look at it really curious choice that the leadership made their. It's one thing to be as intense as be elsa but if the good football doesn't follow then you're you're absolutely scripts. Yeah that's right. Doug one element of this. That i find really interesting. Is the gabrielle joseph martinez dynamic. Because as we know martinez he i mean he kind of been sent off into exile in the latter stages of this heintze short tenure and martinez is just like i pictured these scenarios in my head of like you talked about gabriel denying players water and joseph martinez just doesn't strike me as a guy who'd be having that i just picture them saying. No i'm i'm going to drink this water. Like what was the genesis of their falling out. Was it as simple as that. While i can tell you i mean. Everyone thought that you know the reason. Why hines it gets fired. Is that you know..

"Course But more so almost it seems like it's being treated as like a glorified tryout for players who can take part and do a job for the us in world cup qualifying so with that being the case. Who is passing that test so far. Who are some of the guys that are standing out to you that you think okay we could maybe bring them to somebody's world cup qualifiers and if they have to see some time on the field it won't be much of a drop off. Who do you look at so far for that yet. A good question. I mean you gotta look at shack more you know. He scores the goal the other game our last game against canada. He's a guy that would not be starting in this tournament of reggie cannon was healthy But he's he's acquitted himself. Well now it right back. I mean you've got john via ad-lib cannon you've got so gene dass play there so you know i don't. I don't know that guy that was going going to be with the full team. When rocca qualifying starts let alone starter. But he's a guy that's acquitted himself well matt turner and goal You know he he's. He's had to clean sheets the only goal against a penalty against martinique You know still some concerns about. Can he play out of the back with his feet. Which is going to be required We think full team. It's it's the way of the modern game. There's no way around it but he's done just fine Darryl decays impressed again. You know martin martinique say what you want but he put the ball in is second goal. I thought he took really well You know showed a few a few different death touches on that one. Play and striker is a position this wide open for this team. I mean you know josh. Sergeant is the incumbent there but no competition is his great in that in any position. But at stryker particularly in daryl decay has done nothing to suggest that he's not he's not able to step right into a qualifier if he's needed he brings something a little bit different. I think than any of the other strikers in the bulletin and he's a guy who's improving before our eyes so you know those are those. Are those guys that stand out. I think on an individual level. Now i agree with you. Jj i i'm looking at this as an experimental tournament. I'm more interested in which guys can help this team. starts but i can tell you inside the team. That's not that's not the they wanna win this tournament winnings habits cliche. But it's true in the us with its full team won the nation's league. And i think the idea is that they the the priority here is to win this tournament and if they win the tournament walkers zimmerman Quote for the candidate game. He said something like you know we. We win this tournament. That's gonna reflect. Well on on alva individually. I think that's i think that's really what it's about if us wins this tournament. You're gonna forget. Maybe about some of these lackluster performances. That we've seen in the group stage though. Do you see many changes. I know we don't at this moment of recording. We don't know who they're going to face next sunday in the quarter-final do what kind of lineup do you expect with. With the knowledge that bear holder accrued over the three group games. What kind of changes do see him making. See making any any changes. Yeah i mean i think. Jj the team you put out against canada was as first choice. Line-up i mean we saw some guys that were there. Were clearly rested against martinique in other. There's some question marks with the injuries we'd seen again. I think canon is a really important player. He's a guy that is a first team player. He's part of that first. Twenty three maybe not as a starter But you know he's he's one of only a few guys on the squad that you can say that about and if he's healthy i think you might. You might see him on the field rusher about paula elliott night. I got injured early in the first game. I have been seen that you know. There's been a change. Copycat announce that there are some injury replacements. Available jury berhalter You know you does. That option. Haven't seen anything as of this recording yet on that but But yeah i mean if all things are the same. I think we're gonna see if not the exact same lineup. We saw against canada very close to mcintyre joining us here on cough side so dug up. I wanted to switch gears to what happened with man. United f c In the past few days with gabriel heintze.

"Was over. Injured had an enormous amount of injuries. No wonder they were on a game. Losing chess schedule or skid and joseph martinez you ostracize the club's biggest star the biggest personality the one player. The fans have a true feeling for to engage before he pushed him aside. Once that happened. it was over. So let's credit some of the reporting because it was brilliant reporting done on this the athletic the atlanta journal constitution act former colleague. Here at espn as well. Doug mcintyre now over at fox did a great job on some of the granular detail a macintosh acquiesce behind behind. What's happened here so you've hired gabrielle. Heinsohn on the heels of hiring frank deboer. I'm less interested now in hindsight and wondering. Who's hiring the coaches. If we're looking at an atlanta united team that seems to be in decay. Don't we need to look further up now. This is too big bold. Coaching hires that have been too big bold coaching failures. Now isn't this on darren. Eales and carlos bocanegra dare neal's and my former teammate and friend carlos book are definitely on the hook and not just. The coaching hires and fires. But also the player personnel on. How they've got completely this roster all wrong if you look at the amount of money that atlanta has wasted and coaching hires and player turnover. It's no wonder they are where they are today. And it also should tell you how lucky they were with that martino how they knocked it out the park with them and how instrumental probably was in bringing talent in in retailing talent and building a roster because the last two rosters. They've tried to build have not been good so this next this next higher for them is literally make or break for one of these two. If not both absolutely they are on the hook. So if i look bigger picture here her i see joseph martinez winning out and a one on one battle with gabrielle. Heintze elsewhere in the league. See josie altidore winning out on one on one battle with chris. Armas these are two of the stars if you want to call them that the stars of major league soccer of this league do do these players. Have too much power when it comes actually. Who's in charge of the dressing. Foos in charge of these clubs. You know you said this last week and it made me think you're absolutely right sevi- and it's because these clubs are handcuffed when it comes to the salary cap when you're going to literally construct your roster around three players you have to completely knock it out the park with these players. They have to produce for you. Not only on the field but off the field and if you miss if.

"For guy behind son. Of course we talked all about the judge. Martinez feud is the right word. I don't think it is disconnect whatever it is just martinez seemed like justice and joseph's friends. We're certainly spiking the ball on this week with the mixture of joseph martinez with all his trophies with is new brown if we were to do current player twitter power rankings like jillian. Gasoline is like top tier He sneaks in there every now and again will some. Anyway i digress. Go ahead you meal. Assad to the pk hop started back there in dc. United probably looking down. The you know looking down the eastern seaboard being like what is going down there. We got support for our boys so Here's a quote from. Joe patrick dirty south soccer and a column he wrote would take away from this news and i think it pretty much encapsulates. What happened here quote. It's flat out embarrassing to have to fire a head coach less than eight months after unveiling him as the savior of what was a dismal twenty twenty season and that's the way it went and then we before we really dig in here and pile on perhaps behind heintze should probably take some Mea culpas as well because we like everyone else. And i remember these shows distinctly. I remember the feeling that had like. Oh my god. What an ambitious higher. What an incredible higher eleni is back. They're going to be. Xyz ezekiel your barco is going to take the jumps we expected marcellina marino is going to be the player that they signed and said he was joseph. Martinez is going to get healthy and be joseph martinez again. We were all straight up. We were wrong. And and i think most people were right but that's also from the outside on resume and not actually on. How does he fit. And what's the state of the club because while you talk about oh eight months ago. He was hired to be the savior. No this is frank. Tibor all connected. This is now one error of chaos at laney united and while to four one a couple trophies early because of the top martino team that continued with him to an extent. This now cannot be focused on just the managers and there's a ton to focus on gabrielle. Hines he has left a fair amount of bread crumbs for the insanity that was it seems like his time in atlanta. But you gotta look at the club overall and then ask the question. Was it set up for hindsight to succeed and where hindsight maybe had mistakes and failed. Was there enough guidance from the rest of the club. Is there too much influence for the coach. You have to look bigger than just hindsight to say now for this club over the course of two and a half three years. It's been one of the worst in major league. Soccer coming off the first two years which were historic for an expansion franchise. Yeah i think this is i mean. Look a lot of pressure on. Darren eales in carlos boker at bocanegra right now. I think it is probably understood that both those guys are sitting on relatively hot seats themselves..
