The second Bobby Murphy era began since we last spoke and the results so far are mixed. The Lions advanced in the U.S. Open Cup with a penalty shootout win following a 1-1 draw at D.C. United last Wednesday, then returned home and were beaten by Montreal, 2-0. We’re breaking down the matches, the shape change, and the lineup decisions. Plus, Bobby’s postgame comments on Saturday and Alex Leitao’s press conference.
We also discussed the Pride’s win at Washington Saturday night on Alanna Kennedy’s Goal of the Week. In addition, we weigh in on Ashlyn Harris’ comments regarding Orlando’s NWSL attendance this season.
New Orlando City defender Shane O’Neill dropped in to talk about his return to MLS, being reunited with former teammate Dillon Powers, his hopes to get back into the USMNT discussion and much more.
We also looked ahead to Orlando City’s upcoming match against Atlanta United with our key match-ups and predictions, and the Pride’s got Houston and North Carolina at home this week. And we answered listener questions in our weekly mailbag segment.
