Orlando City split a pair of games since we last talked but overall the team played well and got to rotate a lot of new faces into the lineup. Following a lot of lesser-used players having a good showing on the road in Seattle in a losing effort, the team returned home and promptly put a whoopin’ on FC Cincinnati. We’ve got two breakdowns for you and two unanimous selections for Man of the Match. We also discussed OCB’s first win in USL League One and some well-deserved accolades for multiple young Lions.

We were happy to have Joanna Boyles of the Orlando Pride stop by to talk about her season so far, what players she tries to emulate, how the team is adjusting to Marc Skinner’s system, life without the internationals, and how close the team is to turning the corner. It was a good chat and we hope Boyles goes on to do good things for the rest of 2019.

Our mailbag is very large and so are our answers this week. We also looked ahead to the LA Galaxy on Friday (sans Zlatan) and gave our key match-ups and predictions for the match. We then went on in overtime about the Game of Thrones finale after the sign-off so you won’t be spoiled if you haven’t watched yet as long as you turn off the show after I do the regular sign-off.

Here’s how show No. 163 went down:

0:15 - Orlando City split two matches since our last broadcast and overall we were fairly satisfied with the results, given all the circumstances.

52:22 - Jo Boyles joins us for some Orlando Pride discussion, including how close Marc Skinner’s team is to turning in a winning performance.

1:09:49 - We respond to the sizable mailbag and give our predictions for Orlando City vs. LA.

2:00:38 - After the sign-off: A spoilerific discussion of the Game of Thrones finale. What was dumb? What kind of worked? We debate!
