Now that we’ve all gotten over the shock that Orlando City isn’t going undefeated in 2019, it’s time to dissect the problems the Lions had against the Montreal Impact in Saturday’s 3-1 home loss. We break down the game and how individual errors were costly.
We also talked about the Orlando Pride’s preseason roster update and touched on the team’s Media Day, albeit briefly and not in as much detail as we’d like. A battle with sciatic nerve pain this week has me on little sleep and listening back to the audio, I can definitely tell a difference in my energy levels, so...please bear with me.
We also touch on the Orlando SeaWolves’ playoff chances, which gives us the perfect segue into this week’s guest interview. SeaWolves star forward Gordy Gurson drops by this week to talk about the season so far, the road toward the postseason, how former Lions have adjusted to the indoor game, and more.
We had a light mailbag this week and then touched on the USMNT’s friendly match against Ecuador tomorrow night at Orlando City Stadium. We also gave our key match-ups and score predictions for the Lions at the New York Red Bulls this Saturday night.

Here’s how show No. 154 worked out:
0:15 - Orlando City falls for the first time in 2019, the Pride’s preseason and upcoming match at North Carolina, and SeaWolves talk.
41:22 - Gordy Gurson stops by and he’s very impressed with Jonathan Mendoza’s ability to adapt to the indoor game. Plus, how a banged-up Orlando side can still reach the playoffs.
51:49 - Our mailbag is light but fun, the USMNT makes a weird positional change, plus a look ahead to the Dread Bulls.
