Episode #79 Here’s to strength in attack and setting the pace from the first whistle!! I bet you didn’t notice MLS finally published the…

Leadership on the Timbers backline.

[push play] Next Stop Frisco! #RCTID

These 13 songs are dedicated to Timbers Club Captain, Jack Jewsbury. An important player on the backline who’s leadership is needed bigtime this weekend with the ever rotating centerback situation and the XI debut of backup goalkeeper Andrew Weber. This one, goes out to the Timbers! …….. The Stone Roses – I Wanna Be Adored…

Searching

It’s a long season. Yes, it’s early days. I would expect this Timbers side to be battling with the top teams by mid summer. Porter has stressed consistency, a thing most MLS teams struggle with. This team returns a core that buzzed together by mid-summer last season and has a few additions who have a track…

Draw. Draw.

The second Portland Timbers home match to start the season, the second draw. Fact: After two matches the boys are a single point ahead of last years pace. Yep, way too early, but sorta surprising this campaign hasn’t started off with at least a couple more points, yeah? Good things have happened out on the…

Headaches around the goal?

Game Face

With my concussion like symptoms faded, I’ve now been cleared for Sundays “match day two” viewing experience; Portland Timbers vs. the Chicago Fire Soccer Club. It’s time to get serious. Pints up before noon on a Sunday? Ouch. A questionable and difficult match day decision. Remember Timbers Army faithful, it’s a long grueling Supporters Shield…

MLS scheduling guru,  Professor Bobo Garber.

Goofy #MLS scheduling monkeys

Major League Soccer has a lengthy, funky fixture list that boggles the mind.  I for one haven’t an issue with the March through October regular season, it’s just the little details that leave me [us / everyone] puzzled. Four rounds of matches during the World Cup [6/11 through 7/13] including a mouth watering Timbers at…

Support and so much more.

  This morning while finishing up a fourth pot of coffee, I spotted a folder labeled “Support”. Inside said folder was this set of images. They made me stoked and so ready to get my Multnomah Stadium / Civic Stadium / Portland General Electric Park / Jeld-Wen Field / Providence Park walking feet back in-shape.…
