The Big Acquisition: what do we hope/expect to achieve ????

Have been reading all these articles and comments about all of this stuff, sometimes with interest, often with some bemusement, often with some puzzlement....quite honestly. A lotta folks here...

Post-Sounders Fiasco: Is There ANYTHING a coach can do ?

I thought Christmas was a ways off...but apparently it is today, April 5. I should have set up a tree. If it isn't actually Christmas, then it's hard to explain the gift wrapped goals the timbers...

So.....are we missing RW yet ?

OK, so after 4 games...we have all been watching a completely struggling and misconnecting attack. The D isn't playing badly. Weber did a fine job in the nets last night, too. But our attack is...

Porter fails to get hint

I am watching the waning moments of the match, and it strikes me how darn clear it was that, despite the fact that Jack Jewsbury opened the season in strong fashion, in THIS particular match the...

The Frenchman's Lifeline.....

Je remercie Dieu pour Piquionne !!! On a night which was pretty darn dismal, his goal is gonna be huge. Ironically, nicely served in by Jack as well...as the both of them were victimized by...

MLS Brilliance, Redux: Two (playoff) games in 5 days....then one game in 14 days.

Timbers played 11/7, now play 11/11...then not again until 11/24. The East finals played 11/9 and then will play 11/23. I mean, seriously..... This is postseason here, and it's down to...

I really LIKE Soccer.

Eh... well.... after NFL opening day...which I think, when you average it out, shoves 2 commercials down your throat per every play from scrimmage.... ...thus taking all of, oh.... 4 hours and...

Congrats to the Thorns ! Portland is Proud !

Oh, yeah ! What a fabulous Final. They really dug deep, deep, deep. A very unlikely playoff path they had to navigate: 2 road games against a pair teams considered the best in the league, and...

Now comes Gut-Check time

I actually wasn't gonna write anything coming off of last night's fiasco, which was on top of the RSL fiasco...but then I read the comments under the Timbers-Sounders Recap article....and I just...

Are we better off with Futty as a starter, rather than Kah ?

Just wondering out loud. Kah's emotional outbreaks during games...I dunno, at times. I think it has hurt the squad, made 'em lose their focus in recent matches. Futty is a quieter, calmer,...

Took half a season, but Porter-Ball has been figured out by opponents.

So, let's see what the coach and the players can do to counter that. In the last 4 matches, high/deep pressure from the opposition has made the Timbers attack look disjointed and definitely has...

Let's NOT "Nagbe" Valeri, please.....

You remember, of course. A strong first few games and the local press, fans, announcers, and MLS alike were all touting our #6 as a true star and saviour. MLS, in its infinite desire to find faces...

Game 2: Signs of a System (but....)

Unlike the messy slugfest of Game #1....this last game was actually interesting and showed some signs of structure and intent. (Despite Troy Perkins' heroics, it was also a quite winnable match and...

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Well...I suppose the interpretation of Game #1 is dependent upon whether one is a 'glass half full' or glass half empty' sorta person. Keeping in mind, of course, that this was the first game of...

Get rid of your best player in the offseason. A Timbers Tradition ?

Last year they replaced Cooper with Boyd. That was sheer brilliance. This year they release Songo'o. Fantastic...they just let go their most talented player. By the end of last season, even in...
