Trade in the works?

It's not hard to form a reading of Merritt's twitter that a trade is being completed or has been completed: "Additionally, we've been active on player front as I noted last wk. I didn't realize...

I want to hear from Paulson

There are some nice things about having an owner who is an active voice and gets off on having the details and dangling nuggets in front of a hungry fan base. It's fun and engaging for a lot of...

"That’s his opinion, he can say whatever he wants," Perkins told reporters on Thursday. "He’s said some things in the past about guys who had left the club, and that’s him. It’s a little bit of motivation for me, obviously, and I’m not going to come and fight back in the media. I’ll show it when I step on the field."

Fake pain and stoppage time

First and foremost I want to send my best wishes to David Ferreira. Is he okay? It can't be easy to be both a professional athlete and a porcelain doll. But primarily I want to discuss fake pain...

I don't think everyone was overly thrilled. That's extra motivation for me to win over the whole of the TImber's Army. ...There's not a guy in this league who wouldn't want to be a part of this rivalry.

Expansion Teams Points Per Match Since 2005

I thought it might be interesting to look at the points per match of each of the expansion teams since RSL and Chivas joined the league in 2005. I could have gone back to 1998 when Chicago and...

Paulson and Wilkinson on the future

Via a really well written Jason Quick piece. I wish he would write Timbers more often. In addition to this stuff, there's some quality stuff on Paulson himself. Great article. Juicy article. There...

Dear Portland Timbers

According to Law 7--The Duration of the Match, of FIFA's Laws of the Game, a soccer match is divided into two halves of 45 minutes. This adds up to 90, not 75. Perhaps you are unclear of the rule,...

'No Pity' and Steve Zakuani

Let me just throw this out there. We've probably all seen the play now, where Brian Mullan of Colorado didn't get a foul called, so responded petulantly by breaking Steve Zakuani's leg. Okay, so I...

Fulham fans who don't like this statue outside their stadium have been told by the club's owner that they can 'go to hell.' Merritt is thinking hard about a Rick James statue outside of the JW.... I imagine.

There's Timber Jim and his granddaughter via a really good ESPN Timbers story found here: http://espn.go.com/sports/soccer/news/_/columnist/carlisle_jeff/id/6202255/portland-where-dream-soccer-lives-on I think it's really lame that Timber Jim had to wait in line for hours to get this picture taken. But I'm thrilled he got a lot of run in this piece. I think the team should do something special for him if nothing has been planned yet.

Paul Allen's Health

I know many are pretty upset with him these days. I'm very grateful to have him as the owner of my team, regardless of what happens with the current turmoil. But I'm outside of the area and wondering how his health is, if anyone has heard recently, or can simply relate what they last heard.

Kobe

I ran Kobe through MS Paint. Nearly as creepy as it ought to be. I don't know who to root for in the LAL/OKC matchup. I hate the Lakers, but all I want to see in OKC are empty seats and a frown on Clay Bennett's fat lying face (unlikely, with that team, I know).
