PawedCast Episode 65: LA Galaxy Review and Columbus Crew Preview

We break down what went wrong in Los Angeles and whether Orlando City can bounce back against the Columbus Crew. Plus Orlando Pride and OCB and a special guest from Massive Report.

MLS: Orlando City SC at LA Galaxy Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat. There are about a million things we’d rather do than break down Orlando City’s 4-2 loss at LA Galaxy on the weekend. For example, breaking down an Orlando City win in that game. Unfortunately, we can’t bend time or reality so you’ll have to settle for our analysis of the Lions’ rough loss in Landon Donovan’s return to MLS.

In addition, it wasn’t a good weekend for the Orlando Pride or OCB, so I’m afraid we have very little good news for you this week, but like true professionals, we put our heads down and do our jobs for you, the home listener.

With another weekend comes a new chance for us to be happy, with the Columbus Crew visiting Camping World Stadium on Saturday night. Here to help us break down that game is Pat Murphy from Massive Report, who was kind enough to give us an update on an Eastern Conference rival we haven’t seen since July’s 2-2 draw at Mapfre Stadium — a game which Orlando City trailed 2-0 at halftime.

And, of course, we’ve got our key match-ups for the game as well as our final score predictions.

Here’s how the show went down:

0:12- Orlando City falls to LA Galaxy in spectacular fashion but we try to find a few positives, including our picks for Man of the Match. Pride and OCB lose as well. Bad weekend!

42:42- Pat Murphy jumps on to give us the lowdown on Columbus and what we can expect from the Crew this weekend. He’s not bullish on their chances.

59:12- Our key match-ups and soon-to-be-ridiculed final score predictions.

And that’s a wrap. We’ll be back next week to do it all again.
