Can we just be done with July? The seventh month of 2015 was unkind to Orlando City fans, as well as our Lions,to the tune of no wins. Nada. Not even one.

Nevertheless, Michael Citro is joined by fellow Mane Landers Brent Petkus and Kye Foley to break down the two most recent disappointing results - a 3-1 away loss in the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals against the Chicago Fire, and a 5-3 barnburner at Yankee Stadium against New York City FC. At least we got to see City's first MLS hat trick in the latter, courtesy of rookie striker Cyle Larin.

Our old frienemy Pat Murphy from Massive Report stops in and updates us on Saturday night's opponents, the Columbus Crew, who we are seeing for the fourth (!) time during the 2015 season. Pat tells us what makes Kei Kamara so special and what we might expect on Saturday.

Then we discuss the game's key match-ups and give our always LOL-worthy match predictions.

Here's how it all unfolded:

0:26- Michael, Brent and Kyle are as sick of losses as you are but at least we're able to put them into perspective. Hey, Cyle Larin did good!

24:37- Pat jumps on board and gives us the latest from the Crew side. Kamara, Clark and what it's like playing someone this often.

43:06- Key match-ups for Saturday and final score predictions!
