If you could have one player signed by another MLS team this offseason who would it be?

For me this is an easy one. Leveron. Vancouver I think made a great move in getting this CB. He is only 23, and while we do not know how much they had to pay for him, if it is not a huge amount...

Roster at 32, more moves needed

If I understand MLS rules correctly we can only carry 30 players on our active roster come a certain date right? Maybe Dike and/or Richards would not be considered active but anyway as of now the...

Our wide players need to take advice from Heath about how to cross

Tobin Heath is one of the best crossers in the women's game (Rapinoe being the other in my opinion). Check out the goal in the 31st minute of the recent friendly with Scotland at the link below and...

Gavin on ExtraTime Radio

He is on at the top of the show. He mentions "news in the near future" about a couple things: bringing back "one of" bornstein or findlay, the GK position, a forward "on the shopping list" (looking at a couple MLS players first for that forward spot)

Never too early for us to share our starting XIs

I go to Stumptown Footy before I read mlssoccer.com or the official Timbers website in large part because I find the comments (usually) well informed and quite thought provoking. With that in mind...

Bornstein as our possible LB?

He still is not wanted at Tigres. Still under contract through so likely would involve a fee and maybe too high. I never liked Bornstein as a LB for the USMNT but I must admit he would be a...

Your 5 Observations vs. Col

Again, I thought it would be cool if many of us simply write our 5 observations as we all view the game differently. Mine are below the jump. Please reply with yours.

Your 5 Observations vs. Vancouver

All, I really like the gameweek articles that our Stumptown editors offer (training reports, preview, recap, player ratings, MOTM poll etc) but my favorite part of the recap article is always the...

Mattocks vs. Nagbe

Obviously these two players are both very skilled but do clearly have different skills sets. However, the thing that I find the most different about them is that Nagbe seems like a shrinking violet...

Am I the only one who likes GW on this entire board?

I for one actually think that our personnel moves have been decent. Not great but decent.

KAH and Franck Songo’o

I have stated that while I really like both of these players I am not sure I want to see them both on the field at the same time as our two wingers. This is because I see them as very similar...

Name one current MLS player you think the Timbers should get.

Make this realistic. No Donovan/Henry/Cooper (just kidding) Name the player in MLS who the Timbers could go after and you think could put together a fair package to pry away from another team. For...

A Tactical Change in Short Term to Help our Fullback Situation

Poll: Desired Central Mid Partnership

Premise 1: So far this year it seems to me about 95% of our attack has been up the wings...I would like to see more come through the middle. Premise 2:Chara (as a central mid) and Nagbe (as a...

I thought Wallace had a decent game in week 1 but in week 2 he was awful. I think once Songo'o is fit to be a starter and assuming he plays on the right and Kalif moves over and starts on the left...
