PawedCast Episode 83: Giles Barnes Interview, NYCFC Review, Pride, OCB & Colorado Preview

An exclusive interview with Orlando City’s Giles Barnes highlights this show, plus we break down OCSC at NYCFC, Pride-Spirit, and OCB-Bethlehem, and look ahead to Colorado.

MLS: Orlando City SC at New York City FC Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

We’re totally getting used to all this winning. Orlando City made it three in a row and five of the first six by going up to Yankee Stadium and beating David Villa and company, 2-1. We are here to dissect that game and give you our Man of the Match picks. We also discussed the Pride’s 1-1 draw vs. Washington Spirit (#MartaWatch), and OCB’s 2-0 win at Bethlehem Steel FC.

But the big reason you’re here this week is our exclusive interview with Giles Barnes. The Jamaican international has been a dogged defender and a welcome addition to the attack since joining Orlando City from Vancouver Whitecaps just prior to the season. Giles talks about how the Lions have gone from being a team to a family and how hungry all the guys are this year.

And we’d be remiss if we didn’t try to play soothsayer and give you our picks for the key match-ups and final score of OCSC’s upcoming match-up against the Colorado Rapids.

The magic happened as such:

0:12- Cyle Larin continues to clobber New York teams, Joe Bendik dazzles with his late stop, OCSC player salaries, Marta debuts, Earl Edwards Jr. might be a mutant (in a good way), and much more.

25:16- Giles Barnes climbs aboard our little starship and we’re headed for the skies as we discuss Orlando City Stadium, staying hungry, playing for Jason Kreis and his teammates, getting Kaká back soon, and what to expect against the Rapids.

38:51- Our key match-ups and score predictions for the visiting Tim Howard-less Rapids of Colorado.

Stop by next week as we recap the Colorado match and look ahead to the road trip to Houston.
