When they pulled off the big trade to acquire him from the Portland Timbers over the winter, Atlanta United welcomed Darlington Nagbe to town with a private jet ride and a rapturous greeting from the Five Stripes faithful.
Atlanta fans unfurled another dramatic show of their love for No. 6 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday, displaying a huge tifo with Nagbe featured in the latest of many "Black Panther"-themed tributes and memes across MLS this season.

The "Atlanta Forever" design can only have helped the home side, as Nagbe & Co. drilled LAFC 5-0 to extend their run of dominance at MBS.
And while there was no tifo involved per se, supporters' groups in Orlando and New Jersey made themselves known in memorable fashion.
Orlando City Stadium was awash in noise and purple smoke from "The Wall" during the Lions' dramatic comeback win over Portland, and the Garden State Ultras stopped by the New York Red Bulls' Saturday training session to hype up their team with some pyro and songs before Tuesday's massive Concacaf Champions League semifinal second leg clash vs. Chivas Guadalajara.
