PawedCast Episode 56: Goodbye Adrian Heath, FC Dallas Rewind, Houston Dynamo Preview and More

Wow, so much to unpack this week and right in the middle of recording we were gobsmacked to learn of Adrian Heath's firing. You'll hear us process that in real time. Plus, as much coverage as the Dallas match deserves, Carlos Rivas, Adrian Winter, the Pride, OCB, an interview with Dynamo Theory's Derek Stowers and more.

Sometimes things don't go as planned. While wrapping up this week's PawedCast, the news broke that Orlando City had fired Head Coach Adrian Heath. That sent us on quite a tangent, and our listeners will hear us discovering the news and processing it in real time. Sure, we could have hit the stop button and talked out how we wanted to tackle the topic, but that's never been our way of doing things and so here it is. We were typing all the four-letter reactions of astonishment while talking, so you don't have to hear them.

That's toward the end of the show. We had plenty to talk about before that even happened. We do a bit of a rewind to Monday's 4-0 loss at FC Dallas despite not wanting to do so. We talked about what's going on with Carlos Rivas, the departure of Adrian Winter, plus Orlando Pride and Orlando City B.

Then we welcome Derek Stowers, an editor over at Dynamo Theory, to help us preview Friday night's match-up with Houston. Derek talks a bit about the changes with the Dynamo in 2016 and why he's optimistic about his team's chances on Friday.

After that, we've got answers to listener questions (tweet us using #AskTMLPC or email us your questions about anything to themaneland@gmail.com) and our own key match-ups and predictions for Orlando City vs. Houston, but that whole Adrian Heath thing kind of interrupted that midstream.

Here's how it unfolded:

0:13- Worst loss of the season at Dallas; what's the deal with Carlos Rivas?: Adrian Winter's departure; Orlando Pride happenings; and Orlando City B's continued resurgence.

36:27- Derek Stowers hops aboard and gives us his perspective on the Houston Dynamo, Owen Coyle, and more.

55:05- Listener questions and BREAKING NEWS ON ADRIAN HEATH, and then perhaps some key match-ups and predictions but those seemed superfluous.

We'll see you next week!
