PawedCast Episode 339: LA Galaxy Preview and Learning to Relax and Be Patient

Alicia Rodriguez joins us to give us the scoop on the LA Galaxy.



Dan MacDonald, The Mane Land

We start this episode of The Mane Land PawedCast by addressing the cries of the impatient, the malcontents, and the anarchists. Those folks want Orlando City to dismiss the club’s most successful coach after just eight league matches. We remind folks that Orlando City had the Champions League, a few bumps and bruises, and multiple new pieces to fit together and the season is only eight games old. There will be plenty of time to panic later, so there’s no need to rush it.

We’re joined by Alicia Rodriguez who has spent the last few years writing for LAG Confidential — a former SBNation blog that is going to launch an independent site in the near future — and the author of the Soccermusings Substack newsletter. Alicia helps us break down what we can expect from the LA Galaxy this Saturday night when they visit Exploria Stadium to play Orlando City.

We also had our second mailbagbox of the week, following the questions we answered in Episode 338. This time out, the listeners asked us to play general manager, to decide whether Arsenal is a “super club,” whether Tata Martino would be a good fit at Orlando City if Oscar Pareja left, and more. Remember, if there’s anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the show, just ask us anything by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC.

Finally, we previewed Orlando City vs. the LA Galaxy including our key matchups and score predictions for Saturday’s match.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!
