Will Orlando City ever score a goal during the run of play at home? We think so, but even more importantly, we hope the club stops conceding in stoppage time (not that any other time is ultimately any better).

After scoring twice at Montreal, the club came home and failed to score. But at least they generated a ton of tasty chances in what turned out to be another heartbreaking home loss. Like the Vancouver match, the Lions squandered chances to capture all three points against D.C. United and conceded on a stoppage time set piece to abandon even a lone consolation point.

Michael, Andrew and Austin take some positives away from a game that lacked nothing from Orlando City but goals. We also welcome Will Conwell from Portland Timbers SB Nation blog Stumptown Footy and pick his brain for information on our opponents this Sunday in Oregon.

And, as always, we give you our predictions, which all match this week, so you know that all three will be horribly wrong!

Here's the rundown:

0:27- Michael, Andrew and Austin talk about dominating without winning vs. D.C. United and looking ahead to Portland Timbers FC.

19:26- Will gives us the 411 on Portland, Timber Joey and the Providence Park experience.

33:38- Final predictions and hey, don't forget we're on iTunes!
