PawedCast Episode 67: Lewis Neal Interview, D.C. United & Toronto FC Review and Montreal Impact Preview

We’re breaking down Orlando City’s two most recent games, preparing for the Impact and we welcome special guest Lewis Neal to talk playoffs with Orlando City B. Plus, the Orlando Pride’s season finale.

MLS: Orlando City SC at Toronto FC John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

A lot has happened since we last met, constant listeners. Orlando City has played twice, the Orlando Pride has finished their inaugural NWSL season, and Orlando City B has qualified for the USL playoffs in its first year. We're here to talk about all of that.

We're breaking down Orlando City's loss at D.C. United and draw at Toronto FC. The Lions didn't make it very easy for our Man of the Match selections, but we make them anyway. We put a bow on the Orlando Pride's first season and look forward to seeing what Tom Sermanni does with his roster in the off-season.

And we look back at Orlando City B's win at Bethlehem Steel -- a historic victory that put the young Lions in the USL playoffs in their inaugural year. Here to help us talk about that and the playoff match ahead is none other than Lewis Neal. The OCB captain, former MLS Lion, and part-time broadcaster talks about his big goal on Sunday, the team's struggles down the stretch without Tony Rocha and Mikey Ambrose, the upcoming match against New York Red Bulls II, and more.

And of course we look ahead to the Montreal Impact this Sunday with our predictions for Orlando City's penultimate home match of the season.

Here's how it broke down:

0:12- A look back at an ugly loss in DC, an unexpected and yet unsatisfying draw in Toronto, suspensions, the 4-4-2 diamond, the Pride's closing match against FC Kansas City, OCB's win, and more.

45:33- Lewis Neal joins us to give us the lowdown on the young Lions, what the playoff berth means to the club, Anthony Pulis' first season as a coach and Sunday's match at NYRBII.

1:00:56- Our key match-ups and score predictions for Orlando City vs. Montreal Impact.

And that's a wrap! We'll be back to break down the Montreal game and look ahead to the final two games.
