Well, last Saturday night we all got a collective kick in the groin as the Vancouver Whitecaps crept into the Citrus Bowl and stole three points out from under our beloved Orlando City.
Austin and I break down what was a pretty good outing for the Lions if you discount the fact that they couldn't score a goal. We discuss the Kekuta Manneh incident that led to his suspension and fine this week from Major League Soccer's Disciplinary Committee, look ahead to the Montreal Impact match this Saturday and chat a bit about the addition of Minnesota United FC to MLS in 2018.
The 1-0 loss to Vancouver in the 96th stinking minute was pretty terribawful, but there were still some positives to take from it and it's easy to lose sight that this is a young team and one that hasn't been together very long. It'll get better, and hopefully that will start this weekend.
Speaking of which...
We also welcome Jeff from Mount Royal Soccer to the show to give us the perspective from Quebec on the upcoming match in Montreal. It seems Orlando City isn't the only team decimated by international call-ups and injuries these days. It should be an interesting battle at Olympic Stadium Saturday night.
And we give not only our score predictions but tell you who will get the goal(s?) for the Lions!
Here's how things went down:
0:26- Me and Austin lament the late Octavio Rivero goal and put the Vancouver game into perspective (spoiler: we both thought there was an awful officiating decision!). We preview Montreal and discuss plucky MLS newcomers Minnesota United FC.
25:59- Jeff jumps on to take us to frightening places inside the mind of a Montreal Impact fan. They're liking their team more this season, but how long will that last if MLS wins don't come?
40:05- We present some names you might not expect to put Orlando on the score sheet this weekend.
