Our season is over, and yet we still have so much to talk about. We're back for our season wrap-up to discuss Orlando City's regular season finale loss to the Philadelphia Union. It wasn't the result we wanted or needed, but perhaps it was the result we deserved.

Aside from the yellow card festival in Philly, there was soccer played at the Citrus Bowl as well, with the USWNT beating Brazil, 3-1, as part of the World Cup Victory Tour. Alex Morgan scored what might be the first of many goals on the artificial turf of the Citrus Bowl.

We also break down Orlando Pride's big announcements on Monday of the acquisition of Morgan, midfielder Kaylyn Kyle, and forward Sarah Hagen. Orlando is catching women's soccer fever. How many will the Pride draw for opening day?

And we each give you three things we think Orlando City will do in the off-season. Some of that is on the pitch and some off, but if all of our predictions are correct, it should be a busy and exciting off-season.

Plus, Orlando City's friendly in Rio in Brazil, NWSL Expansion Draft talk, and more!

Here's how the show broke down:

0:26- A complete wrap-up of Orlando City's loss to Philadelphia.

9:15- Our Man of the Match selection was unanimous.

17:40- Recapping the USWNT victory on Sunday over Marta and Brazil.

20:45- Pride signings! And boy did they make a splash. What do they mean for Orlando's NWSL team?

37:01- What we can expect from Orlando City this off-season.

And that's a wrap! We'll be back in mid-November as the Mane Land PawedCast switches to its off-season monthly schedule. But if there's big news ahead, we may have record some special editions.
