The Woes For Orlando City
Paul Tenorio of The Athletic joins the show to give his thoughts on the continued woes for Orlando City after another disappointing result this weekend. He talks about the potential locker room issues that could exist after the decision to part ways with Jason Kreis and if that is a cause for concern for the organization.
Paul also talks about how he believes that the Orlando front office will take as much time in the coaching search because they understand that the window for them to make the playoffs is still open.

Additional thoughts from Paul Tenorio on the head coaching search:
Porter is similar to Kreis only in that they're both white guys who have had previous success in MLS. Both have egos, sure. Name me a coach who doesnt. If you're eliminating egos, you wont be able to make a hire. Soccer-wise I dont see similarities at all.— Paul Tenorio (@PaulTenorio) June 25, 2018
He's shown plenty of adaptability with his portland rosters over time. Played in multiple formations, moved Valeri into multiple roles (his diff role last year led to an MVP season). Not locked into one formation or style of play HOWEVER the ideas are the same...— Paul Tenorio (@PaulTenorio) June 25, 2018
Likes to play aggressive system. Wants to play good soccer. Prefers to keep the ball and dictate the game. However, he's shown flexibility to win. This profile does a great job of showing that willingness to change: https://t.co/X7WnQwDaq0— Paul Tenorio (@PaulTenorio) June 25, 2018
Hm. Tough question. Well, if I was a coach the first thing I'd want to do is make several trades in the offseason to try to open space and potentially move some bigger contracts. BUT ... if Orlando City is all about winning NOW with this roster? Porter.— Paul Tenorio (@PaulTenorio) June 25, 2018
