Hello, soccer fans! The Sons of a Pitch: An American Soccer Podcast are back with more team previews. In this episode, our hosts examine two powerhouses of Major League Soccer: Atlanta United and the Seattle Sounders. In each preview, Nick and Mike review the roster (who’s in/who’s out), analyze the Designated Players (DPs), and pick a young player to have a break out season. They conclude each preview with projected starting lineups and predict the ceiling and floor for each team.
Atlanta Untied look to compete for more trophies and have the talent to do so. Could they become the first MLS team to win Concacaf Champions League? Could they match Toronto’s record setting 2016 season? Or will they fall flat and come up empty handed? Tune in to find out.
Meanwhile in the Pacific Northwest, the Seattle Sounders again have a roster built to compete for an MLS Cup. They are experienced, well-coached, and look to be transitioning to a more attacking mindset. If their defense can play at an average level, look for the Sounders to once again be near the top of the Western Conference.
