Watching other Strikers with a Heavy Heart

It pains me to write this but I watch with envy as I watch other teams in the Western Conference who have such solid finishers in the final third. Seattle today gets great play in the final third...

I miss Eric Alexander

13

I was disappointed when we let him go, thought he had as much potential as Kalif. He played solidly for the NJ energy drinks last year and last night he was magnificent. See evidence at link.

How much do we miss Horst?

5

Adjectives used here: tenacity, grit, destructive etc. At the time of Horst's departure I was not too displeased as I thought he was 4-5 on the depth chart anyway. However I think we all want a bit more of this from our CBs (I think Kah has it but not sure about anyone else).

Game vs. Chicago is Vital for Urruti

Many of us fans love discussing the starting XI. It is one of the most fun things to do. For the Timbers, when healthy, the back seven including Ricketts is basically set for now, even though many...

Sacramento FC to sign affiliation agreements with both PTFC and San Jose

Really not sure what to think about this until we see the details but I am not thrilled initially. I loved it that we tried to pry talent in the Sacramento area away from San Jose but that might...

What is your starting XI for leg 2?

Lots of ways that Porter could go with this one. I understand the need not to go nuts going forward from the opening whistle but I also would really like to try to see us get on the front foot. My...

Nagbe says 9/2015 is when he gets citizenship

This obviously assumes he stays in the US until then so I think we can count on him on the timbers next year and possibly for the entire season of 2015 as well.

Great article about Toronto signing Urutti

This article is very interesting in lots of ways. For me it raises a whole lot more questions (when MLS would get involved, how it seems that some teams benefit a lot more than than others and how...

Poll: Porterball or Win Ugly: how do you want to play down the stretch

Do not get me wrong I am very happy with the 1-0 win (and the other western conference results thus far this weekend) over Colorado on Friday. However the lineup Porter put out there and the way we...

Did Alvas Powell get injured in WC Qualifying?

He was substituted out in the 44th minute in a 0-0 game. I tried to find information on why but was unable to. Does anyone have any info that would help determine why he was taken out? The game...

I hate scoreboard watching...and Saturday was the worst

Every single game that mattered to us ended up in I believe the worst result possible. The entire night was capped off with Adam Moffat continuing to kill the Timbers, this time not with some great...

Bocanegra to MLS? PDX?

If to PDX what do you all think? If to MLS the same? Does it help his USMNT chances? I think it does.

What the USMNT at the Clink tells us

1. All of the players had rave reviews for the fan experience. This should lead the USSF to keep trying to give games to Cascadia especially after we demonstrate how we support our national team at...

Your Starting XI @ San Jose

My thoughts from the vs. San Jose game last night: 1. Futty was damn solid. While Silvestre does make his fellow CB (and entire backline) better, Futty was very solid in his own right. I think he...

I wonder if this will get me booted from Stumptown. I for one am really happy that Seattle beat Tigres. I do not want to see Seattle win the whole thing but I am glad that an MLS team finally beat...

Great Article on Tobin Heath

Highlight signing for the Thorns is obviously Morgan. But Heath might turn into a better and more important player (for us I hope).
