As we move into the holiday season, it’s the time for giving. The internet has given us a nice, juicy Orlando City transfer rumor to discuss, so we break down a report out of Portugal and why it doesn’t make sense for the Lions. Also, our sources say it isn’t happening and we believe them, otherwise, they wouldn’t be our sources! Speaking of that, we’ll get into all of the questions that people were asking about when our initial story came out.

There was plenty of news regarding the Orlando Pride, including a report of a trade involving Emily Sonnett to the Washington Spirit. We don’t have as good of a read on whether this one is happening but we still debunk some of the social media noise surrounding the deal. Alex Morgan made things happen in England during her short stay and we’re not talking about on the field. Kudos to Alex for getting the Tottenham women’s team equal facilities for training.

We also discuss the Concacaf Champions League, which wrapped up at Exploria Stadium on Tuesday night. It was a valiant effort from LAFC, and the MLS side nearly did enough to win it, but in the end, maybe Bob Bradley’s side needed to lose in order to win next time out. Or, like Tigres, maybe they need to lose three times to win the fourth. Something like that.

We had nothing in the mailbag this week but we forgive you. It’s a busy time of year. 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.

That’s all for this week.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!
