Since we last talked to you Orlando City has returned to its winning ways. The Lions closed out May with a win over D.C. United and started June with a hard-fought 0-0 draw vs. the Chicago Fire despite being down not one, but two men. We break down both games and give you our Man of the Match picks, as well as some thoughts on Sunday night’s referee, Ted Unkel. Plus, we’ve got wins to talk about for the Orlando Pride and OCB as well.
Speaking of OCB, we’ve got midfielder Jordan Schweitzer with us from the young Lions and he was one of the more enjoyable player interviews we’ve had. Jordan weighed in on many topics about OCB, including what it was like to play with boats and trains going by in Pittsburgh on Saturday night. He also was brave enough to withstand our rapid fire segment.
We answered your questions from Twitter (use #AskTMLPC and hit us up with a tweet) and most of them were about officiating. Go figure. We also discussed the USMNT, the U.S. U-20s, and much more in this supersized edition of the PawedCast.
Here’s how it all went down:
0:12- Orlando City picked up a win and a very controversial draw since we last met. Here’s how those results happened and our Man of the Match picks. Plus, another bad night for Ted Unkel.
37:30- The Pride blanked the Boston Breakers and finally earned a penalty. Here’s how a rainy win over Boston happened and don’t look now but Jasmyne Spencer is in form and Alex Morgan returns soon.
42:58- OCB fell behind early but came back on goals by Hadji Barry and Zach Ellis-Hayden! Let’s talk USL and a pretty nifty setting for soccer in Pittsburgh.
49:02- Jordan Schweitzer talks about coming over from Seattle Sounders 2, playing for Anthony Pulis and the mindset of a reserve team player, the season so far, and some other fun topics.
1:12:43- It’s time to delve into the mailbag. You guys sure like talking about referees!
