Orlando City looks pretty OK on the road through three away matches, coming back from Portland with a 2-0 victory over the Timbers. Because three guys aren’t enough to break down such events, we added a fourth this week. Andrew Harrison, a bona fide Brit, joins Andrew Marcinko, Austin David and host Michael Citro to discuss the victory at Portland, rookie striker Cyle Larin’s first start (and goal!), and the upcoming May 2 friendly against Ponte Preta at the Citrus Bowl.
Oh, and we also preview the upcoming match on Saturday with Columbus Crew SC. The Crew is a solid Eastern Conference team and coming out of Ohio with three more points will be difficult. To give us the enemy’s perspective, we call on Pat Murphy from theMassive Report blog on SB Nation. Pat gives us the lowdown on the odd start Columbus had to the season and who Orlando City fans should be aware of on the field Saturday.
We also answer questions from our Twitter followers and make our soon-to-be-horribly-wrong predictions for Saturday night's match.
Here's how it all went down:
0:27- Michael, Andrew M, Andrew H and Austin are still psyched about the win in Portland, cautiously bullish on Larin, and of mixed minds about the Ponte Preta friendly. And we've got takes on the Crew match. Finally, we answer your questions. #AskTML
31:36- Pat Murphy hops aboard and takes us inside Mapfre Stadium, where the Gold and Black await our Lions.
