There have been a lot of special moments already this season, but Orlando City’s three-goal rally from down 3-1 to up 4-3 at the death on Saturday night against the Columbus Crew may have been the game of the year in MLS. The Lions came roaring back behind Martin Ojeda, Facundo Torres, and Ramiro Enrique, who somehow found himself in the right place at the right time repeatedly against the Crew. We look back on the lineup changes, the big moments, and a crazy night that was reminiscent of “drunk OCB” at Exploria Stadium. We discuss the Lions who were honored for that performance, check back on our score predictions and make our selections for Man of the Match.
Following our look back at Saturday’s win, we welcome Andrew Leigh from Hudson River Blue to discuss Wednesday’s road game against New York City FC. The Lions haven’t always fared well on the baseball diamonds in the north, and Andrew was kind enough to give us an update on the state of the Pigeons.
After our chat with Andrew, we discussed Orlando City B’s playoff-clinching draw (followed by a shootout win) at Chicago Fire FC II. We honestly should have given this game more time but our Crew rewind and interview ran long (what else is new?), and the important thing is that the Young Lions are in the postseason.
We also looked into our mailbagbox, where we were asked about numerous things and we had an answer for all of them, including our three worst Orlando City moments. 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 at New York City FC, giving you our key matchups and score predictions for the midweek match.
