MLS: Atlanta United FC at Orlando City SC Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The factory of soccer sadness that is Orlando has produced a pair of losses this week — one each by the Lions and the Orlando Pride. We’re not contractually obligated to discuss them but we do it anyway because we’re secure in the knowledge that you’ve all tuned out months ago. We try to find the good. Oh, do we try.

This week’s guest is Brotherly Game Managing Editor Matt Ralph, who joins us to preview Orlando City’s upcoming match against the Philadelphia Union this Saturday. Every game is a chance to not lose — not a great chance, but a chance. The Pride are off this weekend (and after the regular season) so we won’t worry about them this weekend.

We also answer our weekly mailbag questions, touch briefly on the USWNT’s upcoming friendlies against Chile, and give you our key match-ups and score predictions for the Lions against Philadelphia United.

Here’s how show No. 140 came to pass:

0:12 - We hates everything, my precious.

27:44 - Matt Ralph is a guy who knows about the Philadelphia Union. We ask him about same. He bestows that knowledge upon us (and you)!

42:48 - Our mailbag is growing but we don’t back down from the challenge and we make a token effort at trying to predict the Lions and Union.
