We decided to give everyone a little time off this week due to the Memorial Day holiday and so we have no special guest, however, we still had plenty to discuss.
Orlando City B took center stage early this week with a rare Monday night match against New York Red Bulls II. The Young Lions jumped out to an early lead, fell behind by halftime, and managed to stage a comeback to claim all three points. OCB remains unbeaten at home in 2023 after a wild match that of course featured some Jack Lynn heroics.
We discuss the Young Lions’ win over the Baby Bulls and Lynn’s torrid streak. Also, we’ve had more Shak Mohammed sightings recently, as the 19-year-old Ghanaian has been playing better of late with OCB and he scored his first professional goal on Monday night to win the match. It’s a great sign from the Generation Adidas draft pick and we look forward to watching his continued development.
After our OCB recap, we opened up the mailbagbox to find a question about Ted Lasso. Don’t worry, we handled it with care to keep listeners spoiler-free. 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.
Finally, we previewed Orlando City’s upcoming match Saturday night at Red Bull Arena. We included our key matchups and score predictions as the senior Lions take on New York on the road.
Here’s how No. 349 went down:
0:15 – The Young Lions get top billing for this episode. That’s new.
16:43 – The mailbagbox believes! Our thoughts on Coach Beard’s revelation from the show’s penultimate episode (without spoiling the revelation for those who are behind).
