Orlando City got over its loss at Inter Miami with a pair of wins since our last show. Dave and I break down both the Lions’ 4-1 home win over Atlanta United and 1-0 victory against the Montreal Impact at Red Bull Arena. We make our Man of the Match selections, as well, as some players returned to the lineup and some got a much-needed rest. The important thing is it was six points out of six.

Pat Murphy from Massive Report jumps on to discuss the rescheduled game tonight between Orlando and the Columbus Crew. It’s a huge match in the race for playoff positioning and both teams are getting healthy at the right time of year. Pat weighs in with the latest out of the Crew’s camp.

Former Orlando City midfielder Jamie Watson — now the color commentator for Nashville SC — then joins us to discuss Sunday’s Decision Day match-up between the Lions and Nashville. Jamie has the insight on a surprisingly organized expansion team as well as thoughts on Orlando making the MLS playoffs for the first time.

Next up is some Orlando Pride off-season news regarding roster decisions. The Pride didn’t surprise us too much, and now we prepare for the NWSL Expansion Draft. We also answer our listener mail, which has questions about Orlando City’s shape in recent games, as well as Lions as Ted Lasso characters and who we should dislike in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. 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 tonight’s match against the Columbus Crew at Exploria Stadium, as well as Nashville SC’s trip to Orlando on Sunday.

That’s all for this week.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!
