Orlando City snapped a three-game winless skid on Thursday at home against the Philadelphia Union and then went right back to not winning on Sunday at New York City FC. A triumphant night against a good Eastern Conference opponent left everyone feeling good but those vibes evaporated quickly with an utter beatdown in the Bronx. A lot of that was th…
 
Orlando City ended its losing streak in Toronto but extended a winless skid to three matches after managing only a 1-1 road draw. It wasn’t a terrible result and one point sure beats none, but the Lions still don’t quite seem back on track yet. Still, we’ve got a lot to say about what happened in Canada on Saturday. We also pick our Man of the Matc…
 
Orlando City is on a losing streak. This awful feeling that you have is something that you thought went away after Oscar Pareja’s arrival, but here we are after multiple losses for the Lions and a date with a rejuvenated Toronto FC looming on Saturday. Orlando went to Chicago and failed miserably to take its chances, allowing the hosts to hang arou…
 
Orlando City laid an egg against the New York Red Bulls for the second time in two meetings this season. The Lions failed to convert a penalty and multiple other good chances, and allowed a late game-winner to lose at home for the first time this season. We walk through the game and pick our Man of the Match, discuss a key injury to Orlando’s back …
 
Orlando City completed an incredible nine-point week after winning three times in seven days. The Lions went to Inter Miami’s house and won there for the first time en route to scooping up all three points for the third time in a week. Nani was again the catalyst, with an insane assist on Chris Mueller’s first goal of the season to pull Orlando lev…
 
Orlando City jumped back into action with two matches since our last show and won them both. The Lions are scoring goals and getting dubs and that brings a smile to our faces, even if you can’t see them while listening to the PawedCast. Perhaps you can hear them? We break down the Lions’ wins over Toronto FC and the San Jose Earthquakes and select …
 
Orlando City and the Orlando Pride were off this past week but both the U.S. men and women were in action, which meant Orlando players Daryl Dike and Alex Morgan were on the pitch. And, both scored! We talk a little about Dike’s performance in the U.S. Men’s National Team’s friendly against Costa Rica and the USWNT’s Summer Series so far. That last…
 
Orlando City was off this week with the international break but Daryl Dike has been spotted within the footprint of the 48 contiguous states and we hope to have him back in Orlando after tonight’s USMNT friendly against Costa Rica. While the Lions were off, the Orlando Pride were not, as they hit the road to face the Washington Spirit. It turns out…
 
Orlando City is undefeated no more after a tough 2-1 loss at Red Bull Arena on Saturday afternoon. The Lions didn’t play well in the middle and dug a deep hole, then nearly climbed out of it thanks to Silvester van der Water. The rally came up a bit short, and the team can now concentrate on getting healthy, welcome back Nani and (eventually) Daryl…
 
Orlando City extended its season-opening unbeaten to six matches with Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Toronto FC. The Lions were forced to beat the Reds with their captain and both starting fullbacks tied behind their backs but they were stout defensively and got a timely early goal from Tesho Akindele. They also got some great saves from Pedro Galles…
 
Orlando City set a new MLS club best by going unbeaten in five matches to start the season with Sunday night’s 1-0 win at D.C. United. It wasn’t the prettiest win, but sometimes that’s what you need to do on the road. The Lions looked lively in the first half but after Mauricio Pereyra’s early goal just couldn’t find that final touch to double the …
 
Orlando City remains undefeated on the young 2021 season but the Lions have drawn three times in four outings after Saturday night’s 1-1 affair with New York City FC at Exploria Stadium. It was the third consecutive match with a dramatic Nani goal but an ill-timed challenge from the returning Joao Moutinho threw NYCFC a lifeline via a late penalty.…
 
Orlando City finally got that elusive first win of 2021 out of the way after Saturday night’s 3-0 win over FC Cincinnati. We break down Orlando’s best game so far, including the return of Mauricio Pereyra, a good performance from Tesho Akindele, an easy night for El Pulpo, and more. Plus, we name our Man of the Match. After that, we’ve got some Tes…
 
Orlando City got a hard-fought point on the road at Sporting Kansas City on Friday night on an evening when you couldn’t really celebrate any goal until after it had been reviewed. The VAR decisions were all correct in the end but that didn’t make it easier to sweat through them at the time. In the end, it would have been harsh for the Lions to com…
 
Orlando City’s 2021 season is underway and although the Lions didn’t start with a win, they still earned a point without several key players in the lineup. We break down the match, give our Man of the Match selections, and discuss how much we hate lower body injuries while adding another to the tally. We’re joined this week by Paul Tenorio of The A…
 
Orlando City is all done with the preseason and the games now count. The Lions dispatched the Loons from Minnesota United in the final preseason scrimmage and signed draft pick Rio Hope-Gund last week and now it’s time to prepare for Atlanta United on opening day this Saturday. That Daryl Dike dude keeps on scoring and I tried to do contract math a…
 
Orlando City played one and a half preseason games this week and although there isn’t much info on them, we’re here to discuss them just the same. At least we can talk about the goal scorers. The Lions added another Homegrown Player this week as Raul Aguilera signed a first team deal. Orlando City and the Pride both went through their first round o…
 
Orlando City played a pair of preseason matches in the last week and both were good results. We’re here to talk as much about them as we can, given the information we have, but the bottom line is that winning is better than not winning. The Lions no doubt got strong contributions from Kyle Smith, who was rewarded with a new two-year contract on Mon…
 
Orlando City was tripped up at home by New York City FC in preseason action but we’re calling shenanigans as the Pigeons got not one but two (!) penalty kick goals in one half of a preseason (!) match. At any rate, Alexandre Pato is already scoring goals in Orlando purple and that’s a good thing. The Lions signed a new Homegrown Player this week in…
 
Orlando City is playing games! The Lions kicked off their preseason schedule with a 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Union. We’re here to tell you what we know about it, which honestly isn’t much more than you probably already knew, but we’re discussing it anyway, because why not? Alexander Alvarado was the offensive hero for the Lions and Brandon Aus…
 
Orlando City might be sold to a family that already has a purple team. The Wilf family are reportedly in talks about potentially buying the Lions. But will they also buy the Pride? Exploria Stadium? We aren’t sure just yet, but we’re keeping an eye on things. The club released its new ‘Thick N Thin’ kits and we like some things about it and dislike…
 
Orlando City terminated the contract of left back Jonathan Suarez this past week after he and his brother were arrested on sexual battery charges last Tuesday. Obviously this is a terrible subject but we’re talking about it anyway. Nobody will walk away from this unscathed. From a strictly soccer standpoint, the Lions did the right thing and can no…
 
Orlando City added yet another quality attacking piece to the roster on Tuesday, officially signing Silvester van der Water from Heracles Almelo of the Dutch Eredivisie. The Lions locked up van der Water for three years with a club option and we’re here to talk about what it means for the roster and potential starting lineups. We also discussed the…
 
Orlando City added Brazilian forward Alexandre Pato this past week after a tumultuous week of getting his signature. The Lions have addressed another key need this off-season and that should pay dividends when the team takes the field this season. We’re here to break down the week that was and discuss how sometimes these kinds of situations take tw…
 
Orlando City addressed one major roster need within the last week and appears poised to fill another. Left back Jonathan Suarez is in the fold for 2021 — a much-needed backup for the recovering Joao Moutinho — and Brazilian forward Alexandre Pato could be added soon as well, if he accepts the club’s offer. We’re breaking down those moves/potential …
 
This week’s show starts with a little United States Men’s National Team talk as the Yanks visited Exploria Stadium with four Lions on the roster. Three of those Orlando City players got in the game on a night when the USMNT demolished the overmatched Soca Warriors. The U.S. is unbeaten and untied at Exploria, with the men and women each posting 4-0…
 
We’re back with another off-season show. It feels a bit weird to us to have more than one in an off-season month, but we’re getting used to it. This week’s show kicks off with discussions of the latest Orlando City news, as we break down the MLS SuperDraft, the addition of goalkeeper Brandon Austin on loan from Tottenham, and the MLS dropping some …
 
It’s our first show of 2021 after a couple of weeks off (so happy new year!) and we’re rejuvenated and ready to talk about stuff. Orlando City had a little news since our last show, including ripping up Robin Jansson’s option year and signing the Beefy Swede to a new multi-year deal. We’re here to talk about that being good for Orlando and the FIFA…
 
As we move into the holiday season, it’s the time for giving. The internet has given us a nice, juicy Orlando City transfer rumor to discuss, so we break down a report out of Portugal and why it doesn’t make sense for the Lions. Also, our sources say it isn’t happening and we believe them, otherwise, they wouldn’t be our sources! Speaking of that, …
 
As we move through December, there’s still plenty of soccer news to discuss, and we start this show with a discussion of Chris Mueller’s outstanding USMNT debut against El Salvador last week. Cash showed he belonged in the discussion to be in the player pool and that his first big moment wasn’t too big for him. We also discuss the MLS Expansion Dra…
 
Since our last show, there has been plenty of news and we’re here to discuss it — some of it with a very special guest. Orlando City announced its post-season roster decisions and we discuss them, even though none of them were all that surprising. The biggest talking point was that Dom Dwyer is now a free agent, but even that wasn’t all that big of…
 
It’s never easy to say goodbye to your team at the end of the year, but here we are. Orlando City is done for the 2020 season after bowing out of the playoffs against the New England Revolution. It was a game filled with talking points and turning points and nearly all of them were bad for the Lions. We’re here to dive extremely deeply into Sunday’…
 
Orlando City is nothing if not on brand. The Lions advanced in their historic first playoff match but didn’t even win it. The result will go down as a draw, with the lads in purple advancing on penalties after the weirdest shootout most people have ever seen. But hey, how many times do you get to celebrate advancing in the playoffs three times in o…
 
Not sure how else to describe NYCFC's entire franchise from top to bottom. We (Jordan and I) plus special guests Anthony Merced (@NYCSportsWorld) and Jonathan Sanchez (@jonsanch3z) breakdown the playoff loss NYC had against Orlando City this weekend. We then discuss the recent allegations brought to light by Skyler Badillo during her time as an int…
 
Orlando City had a few finalists for major MLS awards and neither of them won. Daryl Dike was never likely to upset three-year MLS veteran and 2020 Golden Boot winner Diego Rossi for the Rookie Young Player of the Year, but we figured Oscar Pareja had a great shot at Coach of the Year. Alas, that didn’t happen and we’re here to discuss the absurdit…
 
This is it! The winner moves on, loser goes home! In this episode, long-time co-host Chris Magalee joins us to preview the Round One MLS Playoff matchup between NYCFC and Orlando. Join us on SportsHosts and be entered in our monthly NYCFC merch giveaway: http://thenycfcnation.com/sportshostsapp Podcast Locations Apple Podcast: http://thenycfcnation…
 
Orlando City finished the regular season this past week with a pair of home contests. Overall, the Lions played well in both but Wednesday’s match against the Columbus Crew took an awful turn just after halftime when Nani was sent off — erroneously according to the unanimous decision of the Independent Review Panel — with a red card in the 52nd min…
 
Shout out to @ajagbeadewole for coming up with the name of this episode! NYC defeats Chicago Fire on the road to a score of 3-4. It wasn't a great game defensively for NYC but that's all over and up next is the playoff match against rival Orlando City. Jordan and I discuss that playoff matchup plus why NYC has been playing so well this season. Join…
 
Orlando City got over its loss at Inter Miami with a pair of wins since our last show. Dave and I break down both the Lions’ 4-1 home win over Atlanta United and 1-0 victory against the Montreal Impact at Red Bull Arena. We make our Man of the Match selections, as well, as some players returned to the lineup and some got a much-needed rest. The imp…
 
BELIEVE IT! NYCFC, coming off wins against Toronto and Montreal defeat the New York Red Bulls by a score of 5-2. It's the most goals scored against the Red Bulls in this rivalry and if that doesn't put a smile on your face, the goals came from Taty Castellanos (3), Gary Mackay-Steven (1), and Alex Ring (1). Jordan and I recap the victory, what the …
 
Since our last recording, NYCFC has one 4 games, tied once, and lost twice. Tonight, they defeated Toronto FC to a tune of 1-0 and next face the Red Bulls and Chicago Fire. Before tonight's match, NYC clinched a playoff spot thanks to the help of other teams around the league and have the ability to end the season in 3rd place. Think about that, th…
 
Orlando City said goodbye to its club record 12-game unbeaten streak with Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Inter Miami. The shame of it is that the Lions were only a minute removed from a golden opportunity to take the lead and only a few moments from making it 13 straight when the decisive goal came. Nobody had to make a difficult play, either, as the Lions…
 
Orlando City has clinched a playoff spot after a pair of 1-1 draws against the teams from New York. We’re breaking down the performances of a dwindling number of Lions against New York City FC and the New York Red Bulls and handing out our Man of the Match awards for each. Plus, there’s talk of the club being sold in reputable business publications…
 
Orlando City got an unexpected break from the busy schedule Sunday when positive COVID-19 tests from two Columbus Crew staff members forced MLS to postpone the match. Hopefully it’s just what the Lions need to get a few of their walking wounded healthy in time for this week’s matches. But for now we’ve got your breakdown of last week’s 0-0 draw wit…
 
Orlando City provided the energy rather than the Red Bulls as the Lions beat New York 3-1 on Saturday afternoon to run the team’s record unbeaten streak to nine matches. We’re here to break down another exciting result for Orlando, hand out our Man of the Match, and discuss the mounting injury issues that have cropped up in recent weeks. After our …
