It's almost time for Orlando City's first MLS season to start. But before we get to that, there's the whole pesky matter of the MLS Collective Bargaining Agreement, which must be resolved in less than three weeks if games are going to take place as scheduled.
Also, the Lions will first have to solidify their starting XI, which is something that they'll start working on this weekend at the Carolina Challenge Cup in Charleston against New York City FC. The Mane Land writers Michael Citro, Andrew Marcinko and Austin David discuss these topics, plus who might be loaned to USL affiliate Louisville City at the end of preseason.
Plus, Orlando City midfielder Harrison Heath joins us to talk about his preseason so far and the team's outlook as it moves toward the 2015 inaugural MLS season.
Here's how it broke down:
0:26 - Michael and Andrew discuss the MLS CBA issue and what to expect at the upcoming Carolina Challenge Cup.
10:05 - Austin jumps on to talk about the likely candidates for loan to Louisville City FC, roster battles and the projected opening day starting XI.
28:19 - Harrison Heath tells us what it's like to play with Kaká, how the team chemistry is coming along, and whether he'd rather make the big club or get more playing time in Louisville.
Starting next month we'll be moving to a weekly schedule through the end of the MLS season. See you next time!

Can we just be done with July? The seventh month of 2015 was unkind to Orlando City fans, as well as our Lions,to the tune of no wins. Nada. Not even one.
Nevertheless, Michael Citro is joined by fellow Mane Landers Brent Petkus and Kye Foley to break down the two most recent disappointing results - a 3-1 away loss in the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals against the Chicago Fire, and a 5-3 barnburner at Yankee Stadium against New York City FC. At least we got to see City's first MLS hat trick in the latter, courtesy of rookie striker Cyle Larin.
Our old frienemy Pat Murphy from Massive Report stops in and updates us on Saturday night's opponents, the Columbus Crew, who we are seeing for the fourth (!) time during the 2015 season. Pat tells us what makes Kei Kamara so special and what we might expect on Saturday.
Then we discuss the game's key match-ups and give our always LOL-worthy match predictions.
Here's how it all unfolded:
0:26- Michael, Brent and Kyle are as sick of losses as you are but at least we're able to put them into perspective. Hey, Cyle Larin did good!
24:37- Pat jumps on board and gives us the latest from the Crew side. Kamara, Clark and what it's like playing someone this often.
43:06- Key match-ups for Saturday and final score predictions!
Three wins in a row. Sounds good, doesn't it? The only thing better than winning three in a row would be to win four in a row.
Orlando City will try to do just that on Saturday and if the club pulls through, the playoffs are still not out of the realm of possibility. It will be a tough challenge against a Montreal Impact club that's very much in form since the addition of superstar striker Didier Drogba. We're here to preview that imporant match-up.
But first, we want to dwell on the past. Specifically, we want to dwell on a big 5-2 win at Red Bull Arena last Friday night. Cyle Larin, Carlos Rivas, Luke Boden, Lewis Neal, the woodwork...we rate all of their performances. We pick out our Man of the Match selections, as well.
And there's a little Cristiano Ronaldo talk in the air. It's ridiculous but it's out there, so why not talk about it?
We close with our key match-ups for this weekend and our score predictions. Here's how it happened:
0:26- Our analysis of a fantastic win over the New York Red Bulls, including hat tricks and goal streaks and all three Designated Players playing well.
15:52- Our MotM selections for last Friday's game, and it's not unanimous.
21:02- Cristiano Ronaldo to Orlando City? We think not but dare to dream!
24:51- Previewing Montreal Impact and what Orlando City has to do to get a win.
32:04- Our key match-ups and final score predictions!
The regular season home finale has come and gone and Orlando City extended its winning streak to five games, sending the huge Citrus Bowl crowd of 40,000+ home with a 2-1 win over New York City FC. The Lions still have the tiniest of chances to sneak into the MLS playoffs as an expansion team, but honestly, finishing ahead of NYCFC feels just as good.
We're here to break down that win over our fellow 2015 expansion team and we'll talk about our key performances and our selections for Man of the Match. We also discuss the newly announced NWSL team, Orlando Pride, which the club announced on Tuesday, as well as the latest rumors swirling around about a potential trade that will bring Alex Morgan to the City Beautiful. We like the idea.
TML's own Jeff Milby stops by to give us his postmortem on Louisville City FC's season, and how the affiliation worked (or didn't) for both clubs. And we talk to Eugene Rupinski of The Brotherly Game about this weekend's upcoming regular season finale at Philadelphia Union. It's a jam-packed show!
Oh, and we give our key match-ups and final score predictions. Here's the rundown:
0:26- Our thoughts on an exciting 2-1 win over NYCFC and whether two key balls crossed the goal line.
27:23- Jeff Milby gives us the LCFC season overview from Louisville.
40:16- Eugene hops on and talks a little Philadelphia Union with us.
53:18- Key match-ups and score predictions for the game in Philadelphia.
