MLS: Orlando City SC at Philadelphia Union Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

We’re back to talk about Orlando City’s third straight victory and no, that isn’t a typo. The Lions went into Philadelphia and brought back three points to the City Beautiful but they did not — I repeat, did not — bring me any cheesesteaks. That’s OK, I’d rather have the points. Dom Dwyer and Chris Mueller did the damage on the scoreboard and Joe Bendik stood tall in goal to keep the clean sheet.

Speaking of Bendik, he’s our guest this week. We chatted Joe up about playing with so many new defenders, his leadership role with the team, the chemistry and energy of the 2018 Lions, his favorite save, and a lot more.

We also discuss the Pride’s loss at Portland and the huge loss Thorns owner Merritt Paulson took on social media this week. Plus, our listener questions in our Ask The Mane Land PawedCast mailbag, and and our key match-ups and score predictions for Orlando City’s match Saturday night against the San Jose Earthquakes.
