This week we sit down with Matt Pollard (@LWOSMattPollard) of the Holding the High Line podcast (@rapids96podcast) to discuss the upcoming Battle for Worst in MLS on April 27 as Atlanta United plays host to the Colorado Rapids. Both teams have been off to sluggish starts and are continuing to struggle to find an identity. With this year being Tim Howard’s last for Colorado, how much of the “blame pie” does Matt feel he deserves in the results so far? We talk about what gives Colorado their best chance to succeed against ATLUTD’s struggling defense, and who we think comes out on top. Though the eyes of the nation may not be tuned into this one, it is an important match for both teams and fanbases that could act as a springboard for future success. Only time will tell who can climb their way out of the mess they find themselves in.
IT’S A TRAP! Each and every week, we will be reaching across the aisle around the MLS featuring discussions with other content providers previewing each week’s matchup against Atlanta United. We will be discussing team history, culture, and fandom in a way that no one else is, by bringing fans together rather than pulling them apart. We believe that more unites us than divides, and we’re here to put that theory to the test. Test your might! And hang out with us each week as we go behind enemy lines in Offside Trap!
