On this episode of Allocation Disorder, Paul and Sam are joined by The Athletic's Felipe Cárdenas for a fascinating discussion about Felipe's recent story, titled "The battles for control through Atlanta United’s rapid ascent and sudden backslide". Why has Atlanta United fallen off over the last few seasons? Why didn't they hire Marcelo Bielsa when they had the chance? And what pushed them to hire a European manager as their next coach after Tata Martino? Felipe, Paul, and Sam talk about all of those things - and much more.

After the Atlanta United chat, our intrepid trio discuss the Columbus Crew's questionable rebrand. Sam has thoughts, everybody. Sam has thoughts.
