PawedCast Episode 47: New York Red Bulls Review and New England Revolution Preview

A look back at an ugly 3-2 loss in New Jersey, wins for OCB and the Pride, a look ahead to New England, listener questions and our key match-ups and predictions for Saturday night. And our friends from The Bent Musket stop by to talk Lions-Revs.

Losing sucks, so it's a good thing Orlando City has only done it twice so far in the 2016 MLS season. Although the referees find a way to make us scratch our heads and ask "why us?" every week, the Lions are still in the thick of the fight as April winds down.

We break down just what happened in Orlando's 3-2 loss to New York at Red Bull Arena on Sunday, including our our Man of the Match award. On the plus side, we get to talk about not one, but two victories this week, as both Orlando City B and Orlando Pride notched their first wins in the USL and NWSL, respectively. The Pride's was an especially satisfying win in front of a record crowd and your hosts managed to select three different players for Player of the Match.

Of course, we have to look ahead to this weekend's Orlando City opponent, the New England Revolution. To help us do that, we welcome Jake Catanese from The Bent Musket, who dropped by to give us the lowdown on the Revs. Jake's got thoughts on the crazy end to the Lions-Revs match two weeks ago, watching Kevin Alston suit up against his former club and more.

And we answer listener questions in our Ask TML segment, which you can do by tweeting to us with the #AskTMLPC hashtag or email us. Finally, we finish with our key match-ups for Saturday's game and our surely incorrect score predictions.

Here's the roundup:
