Atlanta United are championship contenders again

United has scored 3+ goals in back-to-back games for the first time all season

The Gonzalo Pineda era got off to a slow start in a 2-0 loss to Nashville, but he seems to have gotten a few things figured out after a strong showing on Wednesday night against Cincinnati.

United has rolled up two straight wins, both clean sheets over Orlando City (3-0) and Cincinnati (4-0), and have moved back into a playoff spot.

Josef Martinez, who scored two goals on Wednesday seems to be back in top form, and Barco is finally showing some flashes of the player we all felt he could be.

Atlanta United Analyst Jason Longshore has seen this franchise win an MLS Cup and when he joined John and Hugh he comperes the team's current form to the title winning squad.
