Orlando City lost its fourth straight match on Saturday and yet somehow it felt a lot less terrible than some of the other recent losses. The league-leading New England Revolution are formidable, especially in their own building (with the awful football lines and plastic grass), but the Lions did play mostly well in the match. We break down the game, including some tough bounces, calls, and slips that helped the Revs get the 2-1 result. And yes, we do discuss penalty kicks as well. And, as usual, we select our Man of the Match.
The Orlando Pride got clobbered 3-0 at OL Reign and while a result on the other corner of the continent against a team in good form was never going to be easy, it sure seemed at least possible until the opening whistle blew. Orlando’s slow starts cost them dearly in this one and it wasn’t until the game was out of reach when the Pride started playing soccer.
This week’s mailbag asked whether former FC Dallas coach Luchi Gonzalez could join Oscar Pareja and Luiz Muzzi in Orlando, who from the Pride should be poached for a professional co-ed soccer club, and which players would be the ideal starting XI for the upcoming USMNT qualifiers. 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 Nashville SC tonight and vs. D.C. United at Exploria Stadium on Saturday.
That’s all for this week.
Stay safe and enjoy the show!
Here’s how No. 265 went down:
0:15 - Orlando City lost again but didn’t look nearly as bad as some recent matches and at least the Lions finished with 11 men, which is kind of an improvement.
34:17 - The Pride got blown out in Washington state, our mailbag confuses and perplexes us, and we try to predict what’s going to happen at Nashville and at home against D.C.
