It’s PawedCast time again, and yes, we went over an hour (by 16-ish minutes), we had a big story to cover and a guest!
Since there was apparently only one news story in the entire world this week, we’ve spent actual minutes of our show discussing the as-yet-unsigned Lionel Messi. What does his addition mean for MLS, for Miami, and for Orlando if and when that signature happens? As with any signing, we’ll have to wait and see, but it will at least solve Inter Miami’s attendance issues. As with most things involving MLS, there are positives and negatives, and we’re here to discuss both.
Matt Pollard has been busy repositioning former SBNation Colorado Rapids blog Burgundy Wave into a Patreon-funded site and he joins us to help us preview Saturday’s opponents from the Western Conference. Big thanks to Matt for giving us the inside scoop.
Our mailbagbox allowed us to steal a player from any rival team, which is kind of a neat idea, and MLS should just let us do it. 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 dove into our key matchups and score predictions for the Colorado Rapids’ visit to Central Florida this weekend.
Here’s how No. 351 went down:
0:15 – Inter Miami plans to sign yet another DP.
31:35 – Matt Pollard joins us to tell us what’s up with the Rapids this season.
52:04 – The mailbagbox and what we think will happen on Saturday vs. Colorado.
