MLS: Orlando City SC at New York Red Bulls Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Orlando City has clinched a playoff spot after a pair of 1-1 draws against the teams from New York. We’re breaking down the performances of a dwindling number of Lions against New York City FC and the New York Red Bulls and handing out our Man of the Match awards for each. Plus, there’s talk of the club being sold in reputable business publications and we’re here to discuss what that might mean and how long that might take to actually happen. And we have a makeup date scheduled for the postponed Columbus match.

The Pride lived up to their name and fought back from 3-0 down on Saturday afternoon in a wild, thrilling 3-3 draw against the North Carolina Courage. Whatever happens with the roster in the coming weeks and months, this particular iteration of the Pride went out on a high note in their final 45 minutes of the 2020 NWSL Fall Series.

We’ve got another shutout loss for the Young Lions to discuss in our OCB Minute, and it turns out the 2020 season will be Orlando’s final one in USL League One. We talk about the rumored MLS U-23 reserve league and why that’s a better fit for OCB.

Our listener mail wants to know about the Supporters’ Shield and whether or not it should be handed out at the end of the season and we’ve got our takes. 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.

Finally, we look ahead at our key match-ups and score predictions for Saturday’s game against Inter Miami.

That’s all for this week.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!

Here’s how show No. 219 went down:

0:15 - The Lions are on both a 12-game unbeaten streak and a three-match winless skid at the same time. We discuss that and a possible sale of the team.

55:22 - The Pride make us proud in the final match of the season and OCB is still struggling to score goals. Maybe the Young Lions will be better off changing leagues again.

1:19:14 - The Supporters’ Shield is the mailbag topic du jour and we provide our key match-ups and score predictions for Miami.
