MLS: Orlando City SC at Atlanta United FC Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Orlando City got an unexpected break from the busy schedule Sunday when positive COVID-19 tests from two Columbus Crew staff members forced MLS to postpone the match. Hopefully it’s just what the Lions need to get a few of their walking wounded healthy in time for this week’s matches. But for now we’ve got your breakdown of last week’s 0-0 draw with Atlanta United and our Man of the Match. We’ve also got actual transfer news involving Orlando City to discuss.

Christian Smith of Hudson River Blue and Ben Cork from Once a Metro return to the show to help us prepare for Orlando City’s match tonight against New York City FC and Sunday at the New York Red Bulls, respectively. The Lions will try to keep their successful season against the New York teams going and these guys caught us up with the latest info on their teams.

The Pride’s rematch against Houston looked similar to the first go-around for the opening 45 minutes before the team settled in and started to take more of the game from the visitors. We talk about the good and the bad from Friday’s match-up.

This week’s OCB minute has more to do with a report on the team’s future and what might happen than with a match, because the Young Lions also had their weekend match postponed after their midweek loss to Richmond. It turns out two folks from Chattanooga tested positive for COVID-19 too.

Our listener mail inquired about dream bands, international slots, and OCB. If there’s anything — and we do mean anything —you want us to address on our next show, just ask by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC.

Plus, we dove into our key match-ups and score predictions for this week’s matches — tonight against NYCFC and Sunday at the New York Red Bulls.

That’s all for this week.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!
