Orlando City got the better of its southern neighbors from Miami on Saturday in a contentious match that illustrates how intense this rivalry could one day become. We break down the Lions’ 2-1 Tropic Thunder win over Inter Miami thanks to the supernatural foot of Magic Mo. We’ve got our Man of the Match selections and a look ahead to the next three Orlando City games. Plus, the OCB minute (a 2-0 loss in Fort Lauderdale), and a little bit of Pride preview for the Fall Series.

Speaking of the Pride, Head Coach Marc Skinner stops by to touch on the Fall Series, the many overseas loans of Orlando’s NWSL players, Sydney Leroux’s return and budding partnership with Marta, the team’s draft picks who are on the Fall Series roster, and more. We apologize for a couple of minor audio drop-outs in the segment. Technology!

This week’s Ask Us Anything segment makes us do homework and boy do we hate homework. But we do love answering your questions about Miami fans, past and present Orlando City players, the Bundesliga, and more. 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.

After the mailbag, we give you our key match-ups and score predictions for Orlando City’s match-up Saturday night at Exploria Stadium against the Chicago Fire.

That’s all for this week.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!
