PawedCast Episode 264: Montreal & Philly Rewinds, USWNT, Revs Preview and More

The Lions hopefully found rock bottom last week so they can start climbing out of the pit.

MLS: Orlando City SC at Philadelphia Union John Jones-USA TODAY Sports

Orlando City is sliding down the mountain right now and needs to find its ice axe to try to arrest its rapid descent before something catastrophic happens. The Lions had two matches in the past week and while they stopped scoring goals on themselves, they still can’t stop the other team from doing it and they also seem averse to finishing with 11 men on the pitch. None of this is particularly good but we have to talk about it anyway. We do, but under protest.

The Orlando Pride, meanwhile, were off this week for the international break. Alex Morgan was an exception though and she was exceptional in scoring a hat trick in the second of two friendlies against Paraguay. Her performance Tuesday night hopefully has her confidence soaring ahead of the Pride’s trip to play OL Reign this weekend. It’s the most difficult road trip remaining in the regular season and coming home with any points would be a huge step toward the NWSL postseason.

This week’s mailbag was quite full, with questions about Orlando City’s current form, the fact that no one could seemingly stand up last Wednesday vs. Montreal, movies that set the tone in the first scene, and more. If there’s anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the next show, just ask by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC.

We close the show with our key match-ups and score predictions for Orlando City at the New England Revolution.

That’s all for this week.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!

Here’s how No. 264 went down:

0:15 - Orlando City continues to be bad at soccer at the moment and we’re hoping they decide to be good at soccer again soon.

33:29 - The USWNT scored a whole lot of goals against Paraguay, we had a pretty full mailbag, and we’ve got our key match-ups and score predictions for Orlando City’s trip to the awful building known as Gillette Stadium.
