It's a weekly tradition, #OverReactionMonday. What are we overreacting about to start the new week?
Atlanta United won 3-1 yesterday at the Benz over Columbus. Josef Martinez has now tied the all-time record in MLS for goals in a single season, with eight games left to play. Tito Villalba scored a goal that will go down in history as one of the best at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Miguel Almiron capped off the scoring with a well-worked team goal, including assists from Villalba and Martinez.
Thanks to results around the league, Atlanta has a three point lead in the Supporters' Shield race going into (insert sponsor here) Rivalry Week.
Thanks for listening!
No homecoming party for Dom and Uri as Sporting Kansas City handled Orlando City. What impressed our crew from the match? Cody Bradley, Aly Trost, Robert Rusert and Thad Bell reveal their favorite parts of the win. Was it the stoining of Dwyer or Felipe's goal?
Was Yohan really the best player of the game? Or was it Felipe?
We break down the next match versus San Jose. Does anyone know anything about the Earthquakes?
Of course predictions and much, much more!
The good news is that we have no Orlando City loss to dissect this week. The bad news is the Lions didn’t play, so they didn’t get a result either. The worse news is the Orlando Pride lost at the North Carolina Courage. No es bueno.
We’re breaking down the Pride’s two-day match at North Carolina, give out our Player of the Match award, and discuss what Orlando must do now to make the NWSL playoffs.
This week’s special guest is Orlando City Communications Manager Rafa Cabrera. Rafa has been getting us great guests for the PawedCast for years and now it’s his turn to take the spotlight and talk about his time with the club and the exciting times that lie ahead for him as he continues his soccer education at Real Madrid! We’re super psyched for Rafa and wish him the best of luck in the future.
We also address a very hefty weekly mailbag, and give you our key match-ups and score predictions for the Lions against Atlanta United.
If there’s something you want us to address on our next show, just ask by tweeting it to us @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC.
Here’s how show No. 139 went:
0:12 - The Pride lost and we hate it but we have to discuss it, so...we do.
21:28 - Rafa Cabrera is unfortunately leaving Orlando City’s communications staff and it’s Real Madrid’s gain. We’re sad to see him go but happy to talk to him about his time with the club and all the cool stuff he’s done over the years.
40:53 - Our mailbag includes what makes a great album, whether Flavio should sell OCSC and more. Plus our match-ups and predictions for Atlanta.

Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat.
The new Liga Santander season is underway, and Atlético Madrid found out that their new signings will not guarantee instant success in Monday’s 1-1 draw at Valencia. Rob and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) discuss the key points from that match and whether it’s a valuable point to start the season — fun fact, it’s Atlético’s third straight season-opening draw in LaLiga.
Rob and Jeremy also provide updates on Vitolo’s latest injury and the rumors surrounding veteran left back Filipe Luís. The podders debate whether Atlético should sell such an important player this late in the window and how they could replace him if they did.
Finally, the guys preview Rayo Vallecano’s visit to the Wanda Metropolitano and if the newly-promoted suburban side have a shot at an upset on Saturday.
It's Season 2 let's goooooo.
Petr Cech and Didier Drogba dunked on Registability. Infantino (the guy) went to Washington to meet with the large moist boi i the White House. Infatino (the toy company) hit Gabe up on Twitter.
It has been a very Let's Fix Football summer, so we had to come back and break it all down. Gabe Lezra and Evan Mateer are back to break down all of the stupid bullshit going on on line, on the pitch and in your hearts.
There's League of Nations talk. There's Champions League talk. There's MLS, la Liga and EPL talk. And all the dumbass Football Twitter nonsense you could ask for. Coming up this season: that totally normal blend of dumbass jokes about how Sepp Blatter is our dad who beats us and serious lawyertalk about serious things going on in soccer.
Here we go, Season 2, it's happening.

This week I am happy to bring you my conversation with Emma Pinner (@Pinneremma), a striker for the Southampton Women’s Football Club. If you have been around and listening to the podcast for a while, you will know that from time to time I get the chance to chat with the players and coaches of the Southampton Women’s Football Club. I’m fortunate to have the chance to learn about the players, their careers, their habits and goals, and it brings me great pleasure to be able to share some of those conversations with you on the podcast. If you do not already support a women’s team in the Southampton area, I encourage you to take some time on a Sunday (or midweek sometimes) and watch the girls play. They are passionate, talented, organized and a joy to support!
Emma and I talked about her career, her goals for the season, her injury last year and we also took some questions from her teammates and others on Twitter. We were also interrupted about 100 times, by the dog, and my daughter, and the recorder running low on batteries and more. So, some of that makes it in there and I hope you enjoy a little of the behind the scenes that is in this conversation. Real life was happening right alongside me while I spoke to Emma. If you hate it, that’s fine. Next week will probably be back to normal.
A special thank you to the Southampton Women’s Football Club, Amanda Burroughs, Simon Parker, Lee Calendar, and Emma for making this happen. It’s a pleasure and an honor to have to opportunity to work with such a fantastic organization and such amazing people.
Until next time,
The Red Army crew will be joined by special guest, Jordan Lytle, from the OKC/Tulsa Manchster United Supporters Group. We will examine the latest news from Old Trafford as well as analyzing tactics and upcoming matches.
