Orlando City dropped a tough one on Saturday but we’re going to discuss it anyway. The good, the bad, the ugly, and the rookie. We’ve got your match breakdown as usual and our Man of the Match pick. We also have a couple of transfers to discuss — one in, one (loaned) out —and also one that was requested by an Argentinean team but ultimately didn’t interest Orlando City.

The NWSL is going to play more games in 2020 and we discussed the details we know so far about the “Fall Series,” how the Orlando Pride fits into what’s going on with the current roster, and what the team will have to do before playing in their “pod” against Houston and North Carolina. Plus, we get into our OCB minute.

Our mailbag is filled with mass hysteria as we discuss dogs and cats living together. If there’s anything — and we do mean anything —you want us to address on our next show, just ask by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC.

Finally, we finish off the show with our key match-ups and score predictions for Orlando City’s match-up tonight against Nashville SC and Saturday’s game at Atlanta United.

That’s all for this week.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!


Here’s how show No. 211 went down:

0:15 – The Lions were bested by…Herons? That seems wrong. It feels wrong. We’ll tell you where it went wrong. Plus, transfer news from the previous week was a bit busier than usual.

53:31 – The Orlando Pride will play in 2020 barring any more COVID-19 outbreaks and they’ll have to do so with a roster stretched thin after a bunch of loans. If OCB loses in Wisconsin and the stream is too crappy to see it, did it really even happen? Plus, listener mail.

1:20:48 – Key match-ups and score predictions for the Lions vs. Nashville SC and the upcoming trip to Atlanta United.

PawedCast Episode 420: San Jose Rewind and Listener Mail

The Lions finish a rough stretch of three games in eight days unbeaten with their first ever win in San Jose.

Orlando City went out west and did something that the Lions have never done before — beat the Earthquakes in San Jose. Orlando brought home all three points courtesy of a 1-0 win supplied by Jack Lynn’s late strike. It was a hard-fought match between a pair of leggy teams that each played counterattacking soccer and yet there were scoring chances for both, rather than the game devolving largely into a stalemate in the middle of the pitch.

We looked back at our score predictions to see how we did (happily we were both wrong), broke down the game, and made our selections for Man of the Match.

This week’s mailbagbox was absolutely loaded, asking us questions about cruise vacations, the USMNT, The Soccer Tournament, Mel Brooks movies, what we’d wear to the game as players, Jack Lynn’s (lack of) goal celebrations, and more. Remember, if there’s anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the show, just ask us by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC, or hitting us up on Bluesky Social with that same hashtag.

We’ll be back before the end of the week to preview Orlando City’s coming matchup on Saturday against the Columbus Crew.

Here’s how No. 420 went down:

0:15 – Orlando City and San Jose tangled in Norcal and the Cardiac Cats won the day.

23:03 – Our mailbagbox was insanely full this week, which is awesome.

PawedCast Episode 419: Miami Rewind, San Jose Preview, and More

A look back at Orlando City’s 0-0 draw and a look ahead at the Lions’ trip to play the Quakes.

The injured Lionel Messi was a no-show as the Lions and Herons played to a scoreless draw on Wednesday night, and we aren’t sure what we were expecting, but it was not that. Most of the chances seemed to come early in the match, although there were some attacks in the second half for both teams that fizzled just prior to the teams taking a potentially decisive shot. We break down the match for probably way longer than a scoreless draw requires. We also looked back at our score predictions (which were the same this time) to see how wrong we were and made our selections for Man of the Match (which were not the same this time).

This week’s mailbagbox asked us whether Messi is ducking playing in Orlando and which player we would change their footedness (is that a word?). Remember, if there’s anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the show, just ask us by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC, or hitting us up on Bluesky Social with that same hashtag.

Finally, we looked ahead to Saturday’s late-night matchup with the Earthquakes in San Jose. The Quakes have been scoring plenty of goals but giving up a lot more of them. Tired legs, lack of rotation, and a cross-country trip will combine to make things difficult for Orlando City, but the game is something from which the Lions could take points with a good performance. We look ahead to the key matchups on Saturday and try to predict the final score.

Here’s how No. 419 went down:

0:15 – Orlando City and Inter Miami played more than 90 minutes without scoring a goal. But everyone got plenty of fresh air and exercise.

23:03 – Our mailbagbox was light, but fun.

32:20 – A preview of the San Jose match.

SkoPurp Soccer Episode 43: Bay FC Rewind, Seattle Reign Preview, and More

The Pride keep it rolling against expansion side Bay FC with a trip across the continent to Seattle looming.

The Orlando Pride squeaked past expansion side Bay FC with a 1-0 win at home on Saturday, but the scoreline was more than a bit flattering to the visitors, who got a big performance from their goalkeeper to keep the score from getting completely out of hand. The Pride dominated and should probably have done better from their plethora of scoring chances. Still, when you keep a clean sheet, one goal equals three points, and that’s what Orlando really wanted.

We break down another Orlando Pride win — this one makes six in a row — checking in on our score predictions in the process. We also made our selections for Player of the Match.

Our mailbagbox this week asked us about the Pride’s shape, the timing of Seb Hines’ substitutions, a women’s “War on I-4,” and more. Remember, you can ask us anything by hitting us up on Twitter at either @TheManeLand or @SkoPurpSoccer and using the hashtag #AskSkoPurp. Or you can visit our show page, scroll down, and fill out the handy form. We’d also appreciate any ratings or reviews you can leave wherever you get your podcasts, and if you do that on Apple Podcasts, we’ll find them easily and read them on the show.

After the mailbagbox, we finished the show with our previews and our score predictions for the Pride’s upcoming trip across the continent to face Seattle Reign FC. The Pride have never won in the state of Washington, but they’ve done a lot of things already this season that they’ve never previously done, so who knows?


Here’s how Episode 43 went down:

0:15 – The Pride ran into a hot goalkeeper but still managed to capture all three points against Bay FC.

14:18 The mailbagbox puts us to the test, as it always does.

44:13 – A trip to Seattle has yet to yield a victory. Is this the year? It might be, but our predictions will tell you what we think about that subject.
