Gillette Stadium continues to be a house of horrors for Orlando City, which suffered its worst loss of the season to the Revs on Saturday. We still had to pick a Man of the Match and talk about the game, though. But before that, we discuss the signing of Uruguayan midfielder Mauricio Pereyra, which took place on Tuesday. We break down the move by the Lions.

The USWNT dropped a bombshell as Jill Ellis is stepping aside after the Victory Tour. We look at Ellis’ legacy a bit and discuss what might come next.

After the OCB Minute, which is interrupted by discussion of the firing of Young Lions’ coach Fernando Jose de Argila Irurita and whether James O’Connor and Marc Skinner might join him in a job search soon, we dive into our weekly Ask TMLPC mailbag.

We also touch on Don Garber’s defense of the decision not to suspend Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the MLS All-Star Game before diving into our key match-ups and our score predictions for Orlando City vs. FC Dallas on Saturday and the Lions against Atlanta in the U.S. Open Cup semifinal next Tuesday. We’ll have to record a day late next week due to the goofy game schedule.

Here’s how show No. 172 went down:

0:16 - The Lions add a much-needed piece to the attacking midfield but unfortunately we also have to talk about that game in New England.

43:29 - The USWNT will go to the Olympics next year with a new coach. Will Orlando City and the Pride also have new gaffers?

1:16:26 - We answer our listeners’ questions and give our key match-ups and predictions for Saturday’s game against Dallas and Tuesday’s huge showdown with Atlanta.
