PawedCast Episode 175: Atlanta Rewind, San Jose Preview, Pride Road Trip, OCB, and More



Orlando City still hasn’t woken up from the perpetual Groundhog Day that comes with every match against Atlanta United, but this was one of the team’s best performances of the series, even if the Lions came up short on the scoreboard. Orlando deserved better but when you don’t take your chances, you’re just asking for trouble. We break down the match and choose our picks for game MVP.

We give you the OCB minute (this week a 3-1 loss at Tucson) and then dissect the Orlando Pride’s two road matches last week, which went better than we expected. People took offense to some things Marc Skinner either did or didn’t say in a BBC interview, but mostly they took offense to Skinner not saying what they wanted him to say, since he begged off the question about the USWNT’s fight for equal pay completely and instead talked about something entirely different.

We dip into our listener mail, and, of course, we gave our key match-ups and predictions for the Lions at San Jose this Saturday night.

Here’s how show No. 175 went down:

0:15 – The Lions created 17 chances (!) against Atlanta but didn’t cash in on any of them. Time to wake up to Sonny & Cher’s “I Got You Babe” again. Sigh.

18:57 – Another 30 seconds of sadness in the OCB minute but then we’ve got an actual result on the road for the Pride to talk about, and might have had a second road result if not for a howler by Ashlyn Harris.

58:48 – We answer our listeners’ questions and give our key match-ups and predictions for Saturday’s game at the San Jose Earthquakes.
