The Future Is Now

Twenty-four-hours from now as you reach for your last breakfast beer, before heading out to the Tavern for your first afternoon beer, Timber Joey will be putting in his final holy water log blessings.


Before we all look to the future, lets have a look back to the last two MLS seasons…

Timbers Top Goal Scorers

Kenny Cooper 8
Jack Jewsbury 7
Jorge Perlaza 6
Own Goal 3

Kris Boyd 7
Darlington Nagbe 6
Bright Dike 5

74 goals in TWO MLS seasons isn’t even enough wood to build a small garden shed. I blame the midfield.

The wide players have not scored regularly and the central guys have not created for the strikers up top.

To put things in a two year MLS perspective, have look at the goal totals from the mids.

Goals 2011 + 2012 Seasons
Captain Jack and Rhum 10
“Oh My” Darlington Nagbe 8
Own Goal 5
Rod Wall International 3
Diego Ferney Chara Zamora 2
Zizzo’s FC 1
Kalif “Jazz Hands” Alhassan 1
“Franchise” Songo’o 1

That’s it folks. That’s the two year goal scoring history of the Portland Timbers main midfielders. Own Goal ranks third on the list. Own Goal. Yes Own Goal.

So the point being, forget the past and bring on the future. Bring on the 2013 season. Bring it on!!!!!

Pints Up To Will Johnson!
Pints Up To Diego Valeri!
Pints Up to Ben Zemanski!
Pints Up to Michael Nanchoff!
Pints Up to all the midfield, we need you more than ever!!!!

The Future Is Now.
We will be watching from the stands!
