PawedCast Episode 58: Jason Kreis Talk, Red Bulls & Whitecaps Review and Columbus Preview

We've got not one but two guests this week to help us get to know what new Orlando City Head Coach Jason Kreis is all about. We also wrap up the New York Red Bulls and Vancouver Whitecaps road contests, engage in some Pride talk, and preview the Columbus Crew.

Obviously the big news of the week is the hiring of Jason Kreis as the new head coach for Orlando City. To find out more about the new boss, we've enlisted our friends from around SB Nation Soccer -- Matt Montgomery from RSL Soapbox, and Raf Noboa y Rivera from Hudson River Blue. They give us the lowdown on Kreis from his days with Real Salt Lake and New York City FC, respectively.

While the addition of Kreis is the big news this week, we still have a lot of other things to talk about. We look back at Orlando City's matches at New York Red Bulls and Vancouver Whitecaps in the last week and give out our Man of the Match awards for each. We also talk about the Orlando Pride's 1-0 loss to Chicago Red Stars over the weekend and look ahed to the crucial stretch during the Olympic absences of the club's international players.

And of course we look ahead to Saturday's game at Columbus, complete with our key match-ups and score predictions.

Here's how it happened:

0:13- A quick wrap-up of Orlando City's 2-0 loss at New York and 2-2 draw at Vancouver, which were two vastly different performances. Plus Pride talk and some Jason Kreis discussion.

29:55- Matt Montgomery hops aboard to talk about Kreis' time as a player and coaching Real Salt Lake.

42:31- Raf Noboa y Rivera jumps on to give us the Kreis view from a New York City FC perspective.

1:01:11- We look ahead to Saturday's road game against the Columbus Crew with our key match-ups and final score predictions.
