On today's episode we say our final goodbye to Carli Lloyd (except for her post-season run with Gotham FC- she never stops).  The USWNT drew Korea and then crushed them 6-0 in a fascinating pair of matches.  It was Lindsay Horan's 100th cap.  And we speculate a lot on what all this fanfare for Carli means for the fate of Megan Rapinoe, Becky Sauerbrunn, and Kelley O'Hara.  Let us know who YOU think should get a roster spot for the upcoming potential Australia matches in November.

Sports Fandom: Diehard or Dying?

 Michael Lewis is a Professor of Marketing at Emory University's Goizueta Business School, faculty director of the Emory Marketing Analytics Center, and host of the popular podcast Fanalytics. He joined The Goizueta Effect Podcastto talk about the future of fandom, what defines a fan, and why fandom is an important measure of modern culture. He discusses what sharp declines in fandom for Generation Z mean for sports leagues, teams, networks, and studios. Finally, he unpacks how young women may represent an unanticipated and untapped opportunity for the industry. Lewis's work centers on the intersection of sports analytics and marketing, with research ranging from player performance to brand equity. His thought leadership has been featured in The New York Times, Yahoo Sports, USA Today, Bleacher Report, and NPR. To access his research and find out more, visit Lewis's website at fandomanalytics.com.  What Is Fandom and Why Is It an Important Reflection of Culture? When people hear the word fan, they often conjure trivial examples, like a jersey-wearing individual sitting in the rafters, or a kid excited for the latest big rock concert. But if you take a step back, at its core, fandom is intense passion for elements of culture. Understanding what people care about, and what they are passionate about, is an important pursuit.   Declines in Fandom in Gen Z Males Typically, in his academic studies, Lewis conducts quantitative research measuring fandom across teams.   Last summer, however, he commissioned original survey research - The Next Generation Fandom Survey- to take a deeper look into what's happening across generations. America is continually going through a shift in generations. Lewis expected Gen Z to behave similarly to millennials because both are digital natives, albeit with greater intensity for Gen Z. The results surprised him.   Research shows a tremendous drop-off in sports fandom for Gen Z. Millennials turned out to be the most avid fans, with Gen X and the baby boomers slightly less interested than the millennials. In particular, Gen Z males demonstrate a sharp decline in fandom.   To dig deeper, sports fandom is driven by two psychological constructs: self-identity and the need to belong to communities. Gen Z males' scores on those traits were much lower than Gen Z females, as well as other groups. Gen Z males seem to be alienated from sports with an apathy to commit or connect. Sports fandom is public and lifelong, which sets it apart from other kinds of fandoms, and Gen Z males seem particularly uninterested.  This apathy is mostly reported in the sports realm, not within all fandoms. Gen Z males are lagging, in terms of their peers and other older generations, across all sports except esports. However, in terms of entertainment categories, like music, movies, television, comedy, they score relatively closely to their female peers.   Sports, Gen Z Females, and Female Leadership Research shows the idea of belonging to something bigger, to proclaim that you are a fan, is more consistent with Gen Z female psychology. This suggests Gen Z females feel less alienated and represent an opportunity for leagues to grow their female fandom.   When it comes to sports and female leadership, positive trends have emerged such as the San Antonio Spurs' hiring of Becky Hammon as assistant coach, to last year's hiring of Kim Ng by the Marlins as the first GM in Major League Baseball. This shift may have to do with women starting to take on more important roles in male-dominated sports. A larger cultural force may be driving both sides, leading to more female representation in sports management and, simultaneously, more fandom on the side of young women.   Until now, the marketing of sports has been segmented to males. However, now we're seeing this shift where different leagues and teams are seeing growth opportunities with women. Businesses want to grow their fan bases, and the female fan has always been a little bit elusive. The classical marketing issue is that businesses want more customers, but new fans and consumers affect the image of the product.  Lewis raises the question: as sports become more inclusive, do they become less appealing to different segments? As a pure theoretical marketing idea, most marketing remains segment-based rather than to the masses.  So as a sports league markets to different groups, does it become less interesting to other groups? Does sports shift away from the domain of boys? While this may be positive change, does this shift make sports less appealing to males? While Lewis doesn't know the answer to that question, he thinks it is interesting to consider.  Measuring Fandom In The Next Generation Fandom Survey, Lewis and his colleagues studied attitudes, preferences, and behaviors to capture the elusive concept of fandom. They polled participants about the types of sports they engaged with, whether they wore team clothing and collected memorabilia, as well as social media engagement and spending habits. They drilled down further into fundamental psychological concepts like the need for belonging and the importance of self-identity. Fandom is an elusive concept that can be measured in different ways, but fandom also includes an element of magic. Data can't explain everything. That extra human element is where the magic happens.  Millennials as the Biggest Sports Fans According to the study, by far, millennials are the most willing to connect with organizations and display their fandom. These fans show loyalty through social media, attendance, and active display of sports shirts and jerseys. Millennials had the highest scores for almost every sport. This generation received a lot of criticism when they were growing up; for example, kids were regularly given participation trophies. But they were also more connected with the internet, had smartphones at a relatively younger age, and received higher levels of encouragement and positive reinforcement. In terms of being connected to society, it could be theorized that the environment millennials grew up in helped them become the most committed fans of any generation. This is an advantage for sports organizations right now because millennials are the core audience. Gen X may pay for pricier tickets, but the millennials are, across the board, the most connected generation. This is why the falloff to Gen Z was so surprising.  The Future of Fandom: Sport by Sport  At the moment, every sport is operating in a slightly different context.   Football Football, both college and pro football, seems to be the most protected from decline. Whether it's SEC or NFL football, the experience is a true spectacle. Many football stadiums are like huge modern-day cathedrals, built for once-a-week experiences for tens of thousands of people. Football is also almost designed for gambling with millions of fans in a fantasy football league. Across almost all generations, football is the favorite American sport. One potential threat to the sport is the research and concern around lasting side effects of concussions. If kids don't play football moving forward, will there be a decrease in participation, which translates to a decrease in viewership?  Baseball Baseball is fascinating from a fandom perspective. The sport features many of the oldest fans, perhaps because it's too slow-paced for the younger generation. Baseball has adopted more of a local model of fandom, where people are fans of the local team and don't really follow the game on a national level. For example, people in Atlanta love the Braves, but are not so interested when the Mariners play the Pirates. So, baseball marketing ends up being more segment-focused than mass-market focused.  Basketball Basketball seems to be the opposite of baseball. Basketball is more of a national game with a younger fan base and tends to do relatively poorly locally. It operates based on a star system. This mantle has been maintained and passed on for a long time, from Larry Bird to Michael Jordan to Kobe Bryant to LeBron James. The atmosphere of the basketball court feels like going to a concert and seeing the stars. Do people age out of being a basketball fan because it lacks the relaxing, laid-back pace of baseball games?   Soccer The popularity of soccer has been rising in the past few decades and is now especially popular among younger viewers. When Atlanta United started playing, something unusual and unexpected occurred. The Atlanta United team is owned by the same managers that own the Atlanta Falcons, so they have NFL-level production values and resources and the opportunity to play their games in Mercedes-Benz Stadium. At the start, no one expected more than 60,000 fans to show up. Atlanta United became a local phenomenon, and the team won the MLS championship a few years later. Lewis reports that when he teaches on campus, he sees more Atlanta United T-shirts than he does for any other Atlanta teams.   On a more national level, the U.S. Women's Soccer Team is one of the big sports stories of the last 20 years and has a ton of fans. It is a team with international dominance that has received a lot of attention. Players like Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, and Hope Solo back in the day, largely became household names. However, this enthusiasm isn't translated to all professional women's soccer. While the women's professional league is not growing rapidly in the U.S., the men's professional league is experiencing growth, which may be a case of the substitution effect.  Esports  Esports is also a rising phenomenon that is growing in popularity, especially among the younger generation. Fans devote hours a day to playing and watching these video games. The esports environment is all digital, so it provides an unobstructed view into what happens in the fandom. Analysts can see people watching influencers or streamers on places like Twitch, and then actually see how that translates to game usage. So esports gives great insights about fandom. The question is whether esports engenders a fundamentally different kind of fandom, whether the fandom behind these video games is comparable to going to a stadium to watch a game in person.  Sports as a Business Fans are ultra-passionate consumers; this idea of fandom or passion is relevant to multiple industries. People feel passionate about brands beyond sports. Sports just happen to offer an almost ideal laboratory to study the business side.    Even with recent declines, sports leagues have opportunities and are actively trying to build their businesses. As mentioned previously, the NBA is very much the star-driven league, greatly influenced by star athletes with millions of fans. For example, LeBron James has 80 million followers on social media, while the Lakers have approximately 15 million. But the NBA views that disparity as a positive because they see these athletes as opportunities to develop more of a global business and have been very public about trying to grow their business in places like China. In some ways, the NBA doesn't care if there is a decline in interest in the United States, because there are 1.5 billion Chinese consumers. However, in terms of both sports and Hollywood, indications are that China is less interested in having American culture dominate the Chinese marketplace. To be clear, major, geopolitical forces may dictate where sports as a business evolves.   In baseball, the fan base is relatively aging. It will be interesting to see how the baseball industry will adapt and whether baseball will follow the basketball model and start to move more into the social media space, to make the players the stars rather than the teams.   To summarize the data on the Gen Z fandom suggests that, in the future, the world of sports is likely to become a little bit smaller. Lewis doesn't know what the decline in sports popularity means for businesses. Each team and league is competitive and will make every effort to figure out a way to keep growing their businesses and bringing in fans. Lewis is curious to see what the future brings in this space.   Find out more about the Emory Marketing Analytics Center and check out Michael Lewis's research at fandomanalytics.com.

Orlando City was off this week so we don't have the Lions to recap, but that doesn't mean we took the week off with them. Oh, no. Our show is about the same length as it usually is. So what did we talk about? The Orlando Pride had a key match-up in the NWSL playoff race against Gotham FC and it did not go well. The Pride made the final score more respectable and had a shot at stealing a late point but Orlando came up just short by a post. But even if that final shot had gone in, there have been some worrying trends over the last two matches for the Pride. The team has allowed the most goals in a game this season in back-to-back games, lost consecutive games for the first time since Becky Burleigh took over, gave up a goal in the third minute for the second straight match, and hasn't been getting goals from Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux during this recent skid. We're still hopeful the Pride can pull out of this recent slide and get back above the playoff line but it won't be easy. We talk about the remaining schedule, the overall playoff picture, and the oddly timed re-signing of midfielder Emily van Egmond, who may not even get her international paperwork to go through before it's too late for her to help Orlando in 2021. Dave Rohe and I also spoke about the United States Men's National Team's performances in the first two World Cup qualifiers in this three-match international window. The Concacafing couldn't stop the Yanks against Jamaica but then they turned right around and failed to take anything home from Panama on Sunday. Tonight's match looms as a must-win now to keep the team on track and above the qualification line. This week's mailbag asks about MLS expansion teams.

That's all for this week. Stay safe and enjoy the show! Here's how No. 267 went down: 0:15 - The Orlando Pride are giving up early goals, lots of additional goals, and their big guns aren't scoring. Still, this team is in the hunt and it has lost all margin for error with three games left. 26:30 - The USMNT split its first two games of this international window and now must get something from the Costa Rica match tonight to avoid big issues deeper in the qualification cycle. 48:16 - We give you multiple warnings before launching into our spoiler-filled discussion of Season 2 of Ted Lasso.

Orlando City is sliding down the mountain right now and needs to find its ice axe to try to arrest its rapid descent before something catastrophic happens. The Lions had two matches in the past week and while they stopped scoring goals on themselves, they still can't stop the other team from doing it and they also seem averse to finishing with 11 men on the pitch. None of this is particularly good but we have to talk about it anyway. We do, but under protest. The Orlando Pride, meanwhile, were off this week for the international break. Alex Morgan was an exception though and she was exceptional in scoring a hat trick in the second of two friendlies against Paraguay. Her performance Tuesday night hopefully has her confidence soaring ahead of the Pride's trip to play OL Reign this weekend. It's the most difficult road trip remaining in the regular season and coming home with any points would be a huge step toward the NWSL postseason. This week's mailbag was quite full, with questions about Orlando City's current form, the fact that no one could seemingly stand up last Wednesday vs. Montreal, movies that set the tone in the first scene, and more.

Orlando City did not have a good week and we'd quite frankly rather not talk about it. However, since that's literally what we do, we didn't have a lot of choice in the matter and instead ranted a bit about the effort shown by the Lions in a rivalry match on the road in Atlanta last Friday. We struggled to find a Man of the Match but in the end we came up with our picks, but only begrudgingly. There was also transfer news this week as David Loera went out on loan to Phoenix in the USL Championship. The Orlando Pride got off to another slow start but then jumped on Racing Louisville and with all three attacking stars — Sydney Leroux, Marta, and Alex Morgan — getting on the scoresheet, it was a night to remember for the club's NWSL team. We would happily take a few more three-goal games from the Pride, who haven't exactly lit up the scoreboard in 2021. That said, the Pride are in an excellent spot with five matches left to play. Let's see if Becky Burleigh can get the team over the finish line while remaining above the playoff line. The USWNT called up Morgan, and hopefully Stars & Stripes will return her in better condition this time than they did after the Olympics.

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 the lineup that took the field Sunday due to rotation, injuries, and international absences but not all of it can be adequately explained. We broke down both games and selected our Man of the Match for each. The Orlando Pride had a tumultuous week with the resignation of Marc Skinner as head coach and his departure, followed by a 2-0 loss to OL Reign at home — the team's fifth non-win in a row — under the also-departing Carl Green. The Pride finally named Becky Burleigh as the interim coach to see out the 2021 season with the team in free fall from first to seventh in the league in just five matches. Both U.S. national teams were in action this past week. The women bounced back from their Olympic loss to Sweden by destroying New Zealand and then playing a frustratingly conservative 0-0 draw against Australia to get through the group. Alex Morgan scored twice — once in each game — but only one of them counted. The high-powered offense of the Netherlands awaits on Friday morning. Meanwhile, the men survived a tussle with Jamaica in the Gold Cup quarterfinals and will now face invited nation Qatar in the semifinals. The USMNT hasn't played its best in this tournament yet but has done enough to survive and advance. Let's hope Gregg Berhalter gets this young team going and perhaps set up yet another showdown against rival Mexico (or rival Canada). Plus, Florida Cup is finally underway. This week's mailbag wants to know about Orlando City's fullbacks, the future of Ali Krieger, and more. If there's anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the next show, just ask by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC. We close the show with our key match-ups and score predictions for Atlanta United on Friday night. That's all for this week. Stay safe and enjoy the show! Here's how No. 256 went down: 0:15 - Orlando City had a mixed bag in its two matches. We enjoyed talking about the first one but not so much the second. 37:00 - The Orlando Pride continue to play their worst soccer of the season, although this week it was understandable. Plus, the USWNT and USMNT are doing enough at the moment, but only just. 1:02:45 - Our mailbag, and prediction time for Orlando City against Atlanta. Learn more about your ad choices.

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 Match and it's unanimous again this week. Before we get to that, however, news broke as we were just getting set to record that Chris Mueller is leaving Orlando City at the end of the season on a free transfer. This is obviously not an ideal situation and the club did try to negotiate a deal with Cash, but alas, a fan favorite will be heading to Europe. You're up next, Silvester van der Water! The long-awaited new Orlando City overlords are officially in place as the Wilf family's ownership of the club was announced Wednesday. We look forward to seeing how their stewardship of the club unfolds and if they really will spend some money on talent to compete with the top clubs in MLS and the NWSL. The Orlando Pride appear to be in free fall after a 2-1 loss in Portland that was nowhere near as close as the final score indicates. The Pride were out-shot 20-6 and Ashlyn Harris again won NWSL Save of the Week for a penalty kick save that prevented the result from being worse on the road. Meanwhile, Manchester United is courting Marc Skinner, which can't be helping anything at the moment. Can the Pride right the ship? It doesn't feel like it right now but we certainly hope so. Matt Ralph from Brotherly Game stopped by to help us preview the Philadelphia Union's visit to Exploria Stadium tonight. Big thanks to Matt for his expertise on the Union and we look forward to seeing how our key match-ups and score predictions compare to his when it's all said and done. International soccer is in full swing. The USMNT played poorly and got a result. The USWNT played even worse and did not. The men now enter the Gold Cup knockout round against a Jamaica side that I watched in person three times in the last week or so. The women have to regroup and beat New Zealand and Australia to assure themselves of a spot in the knockout round of the Olympic tournament. Daryl Dike and Alex Morgan both started this week but neither dented the score sheet. This week's mailbag wants to know about Josef Martinez in Atlanta Orlando, what to do with season tickets when you don't live within a thousand miles of Exploria, and more. If there's anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the next show, just ask by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC. We close the show with our key match-ups and score predictions for both Philadelphia tonight and the trip to New York City FC this weekend. That's all for this week. Stay safe and enjoy the show! Here's how No. 255 went down: 0:15 - Orlando City earned a hard-fought road point and you can get a pretty good nap during Nani's penalty run-ups. Also the Pride are not good at the moment. 52:02 - Matt Ralph joins the fun and gives us some in-depth background on the Union ahead of tonight's match. 1:20:05 - The Gold Cup, the Olympics, the Florida Cup, our mailbag, and prediction time for both Orlando City games coming up.

Welcome mountain bikers, I'm honored to be joined by three fantastic guests on this episode of The Inside Line. We will discuss mountain biking and head injuries. None of us are scientific or medical experts on the subject, but during the last World Cup DH race webcast from Les Gets, Jeff Brines and I were texting and discussing Thibaut Daprela's incredible race-winning run with the sidebar of his recent knockout crash at French National Champs a week prior. I said let's do an Inside Line about the subject and here we are.Discuss your experiences and information about head injuries in our forum hereJeff, has been a Vital MTB bike and product tester, he's long-time DH and enduro racer, he's one of the few people to have owned a handmade carbon BCD bike from Alex Morgan, and, he may be one of Vital's most prolific site commenters based on number of characters typed over the last decade. I'd have to imagine it's a close call between him and Primoz.Matt is co-owner of Momentum Trail Concepts, long-time friend and bike racer, he has the rainbow stripes of a Masters World Champion, and he's legitimately the reason Vital MTB exists (listen to his Inside Line from a few years ago to find out why).Craig "Stikman" Glaspell is the main MTB marketing man over at Troy Lee Designs, known for their D-series helmets and riding gear. He has years of experience as a World Cup DH mechanic and industry vet and was an influential mountain bike website entrepreneur in the very early 2000s.Jeff and Matt are both on the show because they have plenty of experience racing and dealing with bike-related head injuries. They'll tell their stories. Stik comes at us with industry experience in the helmet and protection category, as well as being in the position of a person who pays his sponsored athletes to ride their bikes and risk injury as a result.We're not trying to single out Thibaut as an example. His performance is what got us talking. Andrew Neethling and Ed Masters discussed Thibaut's crash a bit on Moving the Needle last week, which was awesome, and it seems, at least from our perspective, that there's a growing concern for safety among our community.Thank You Supporters of The Inside LineVital MTB's The Inside Line podcast is brought to you by Jenson USA.

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 line and the loan of Matheus Aias. And we talk about the players coming and going to their national teams. The Orlando Pride dropped their second straight in their worst performance of 2021 to date and hopefully that won't snowball with Marta and Ali Riley joining Alex Morgan and Erin McLeod on Olympic duty. An injury to Ali Krieger doesn't help things. We also have a new Pride defender in the fold. The USWNT swept its two-game Send-Off Series against Mexico despite Alex Morgan not finding the net. Next up for the Yanks is a trip to Japan to try to remain world champions. The Orlando City U-17 team finished its business by winning in the MLS NEXT Cup in penalties after a 0-0 draw in the final. Good job all around by the academy, but especially to the U-17s. This week's mailbag wants to know if Matheus Aias is a bust, but we don't think so and we tell you why there's no comparison here between Aias and Josue Colman.

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 game was a mixed bag for Pride players, as Konya Plummer conceded a penalty but Morgan got back on the score sheet. Plus, we talk a little about Orlando City's newest Homegrown Player signing, Thomas Williams. He's an intriguing defensive prospect at 6-foot-4 and just 16 years old. Alicia Rodriguez, who writes for Center Line Soccer (among several other sites), joined us to preview the upcoming match next Tuesday against the San Jose Earthquakes. We figured the Lions just played Toronto a couple of games ago, so the Reds are still fresh in our minds and the biggest changes are that Jozy Altidore is in the doghouse and Yeferson Soteldo (whose name I can't quite master) is on international duty.

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 that the only team the Pride can't seem to beat in 2021 is Washington, as the teams played to another 1-1 draw. However, with no Sydney Leroux in the lineup and facing a tough opponent during a hot afternoon match, a point seems like a good consolation prize from a trip to the nation's capital. We break down the Pride's latest match in what is now a five-game unbeaten streak to start the season. There's lots of praise to go around. Following Pride talk, we break down the United States Men's National Team's run in the Nations League. OK, we gloss over the Honduras game a bit, but there's a whole lot to unpack from the championship game against Mexico. That match was as Concacaf as Concacaf gets, but the resilient young Yanks came away with a trophy in the competition's first go-round. Getting one over on Mexico is always fun, even with all the shenanigans from Sunday night. Orlando City forward Tesho Akindele jumped on with us this week to talk about his season so far, the Lions' 2021 campaign, what the team is up to during the break, and his approach to so many situations. Tesho was a great guest and we enjoyed this conversation quite a bit. Our mailbag was small this week but we discuss Gregg Berhalter's approach to Sunday's final.

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 Dike), and start preparing for another go-round with Toronto FC. We break down Orlando City’s loss to the New York Red Bulls, choose our Man of the Match selections, and worry aloud about Chris Mueller’s form. We also discuss the news that Barnsley FC is not buying Daryl Dike’s rights and the big striker is expected to rejoin Orlando City after the international break, which is welcome news. The Orlando Pride kept rolling with their third straight win, making it four matches in a row without a loss and you get to hear me find out in real time that the goal in Sunday’s 1-0 victory was changed from Marta to Alex Morgan at some point while I was driving home Tuesday. The Pride have a big match coming up against the second-place Washington Spirit this weekend as the NWSL’s top two teams thus far will square off in the nation’s capital. Can the Pride keep it going? Following Pride talk, we discuss the USMNT’s loss at Switzerland and why neither of us are freaking out about it. Our mailbag is curious as to who Orlando City will sign to replace Dike and we get to have some funsies with one of the questions. Listeners also want to know how we’d feel about Jozy Altidore in purple. If there’s anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the next show, just ask by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC. That’s all for this week. Stay safe and enjoy the show! Here’s how show No. 248 went down: 0:15 - Orlando City’s zero in the loss column is gone, so...mission accomplished, MLS DisCo! 34:55 - The Pride are on a roll and there are a lot of reasons why you should come to the stadium to see them. 1:06:49 - It’s mailbag time and this week we have no key match-ups or predictions as Orlando City is off until late June.

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 Gallese. We discuss the match, Silvester van der Water’s first MLS start, another solid game for the back line, and more. We handed out our Man of the Match selections to the same guy this week. Then we discuss the suspension MLS handed down to Nani just 25 hours before the game. Who asked for it? Why was it necessary? We dissect this and can come to only one conclusion, so put on your tin foil hat before listening to this pod. We also discussed Daryl Dike’s season at Barnsley coming to an end and what’s next for the big guy before we could possibly see him back in a purple kit at Exploria Stadium. We hope he represents the USMNT proudly and has some success in his upcoming friendlies. We’re joined by Ben Cork of Once a Metro this week to find out more about Orlando City’s opponents Saturday afternoon — the New York Red Bulls. Ben tells us what’s new with the Red Bulls under their new manager, what is being done to cover for Aaron Long’s season-ending injury, and what we can expect on Saturday at Red Bull Arena. The Pride got a huge 2-1 road win at the North Carolina Courage on Saturday night, making it a six-point night for the club. Alex Morgan seems to be getting going and Sydney Leroux also found the net, while backup goalkeeper Erin McLeod turned in a standout performance while filling in for Ashlyn Harris (no injury issues there, just some fixture congestion ahead). Orlando faces its toughest challenge of the season so far tonight against Portland and then will also host Kansas City this Sunday. Morgan got another USWNT call-up but it might not affect the Pride much until the Olympics. We explain. This week’s mailbag has some snark as well as questions about Dike and van der Water. Then we get to our key match-ups and score predictions for Orlando City at the New York Red Bulls. If there’s anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the next show, just ask by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC. That’s all for this week. Stay safe and enjoy the show! Here’s how show No. 247 went down: 0:15 - Orlando City got its second straight 1-0 win and continued to play stingy defense. We break down the win, Nani’s suspension, and Daryl’s upcoming schedule. 39:29 - Ben Cork jumps on to give us all the intel we need on the New York Red Bulls. With no Nani to fear, he’s setting his sights on Chris Mueller. Not a bad guy to keep an eye on. 1:02:53 - The Orlando Pride win at North Carolina, the Pride’s upcoming opponents, our mailbag, and our key match-ups and predictions for a trip to Red Bull Arena.
