Counterattacking teams vs Direct Attacking teams – what might the numbers offer up when viewing a snapshot of information?
Some thoughts for consideration in-between games as preparation for Vancouver continues this week. The average difference between a direct attacking team (at home) and their outputs versus a counterattacking team (away) and their outputs is might (perhaps?) be best viewed like this… at least that is how things stack up when taking my first look […]
Valiant effort to try and steal one point from San Jose last night as Caleb Porter and the Timbers pulled out all the stops in the final 30 to try and get two goals… Not to be; even when adding the full force of the bench to include Piquionne, Valencia and Alhassan. So is this […]
Most likely the third and final time these two teams will meet this year and San Jose will not be in the mood to give away anything since they are sacrificing (“for Club and Community”) the services of Gordon, Goodson, and Wondolowski to their “Country” this Sunday… – still love that banner the AO-Timbers Army […]
For some this game might have been a letdown; not for me – this was an extremely tough road match against, what I feel and think, is one of the best direct attacking teams in MLS. To be sure the Timbers won the battle of possession and in hindsight; along with the stellar play of […]
Nineteen down – fifteen to go; one game at a time… I believe that philosophy but I also think there’s value in fans like us reliving superb moments in history, and by all accounts in feedback I’ve had from others, on my last blog, the noise and sheer elation coming from the entire stadium, last […]
Every time I go to JELD-WEN I look forward to hearing our National Anthem and the roar, the absolute roar of the crowd as it finishes; this game, in particular, I had a spine tingling feeling as I walked from the causeway to the press box after its completion. I don’t get that too often, […]
Ninety minutes gone and Timbers walked away with one point in their last match against LA; that was a classic match where both teams went toe-to-toe and I expect this one to be no different. Are there two teams more evenly matched in MLS this year than the Galaxy and Timbers? I don’t think so […]
It’s been a long time since I’ve offered up an analysis on a game that went pear-shaped for Portland and I’m not going to like offering up this one just like I didn’t like offering up the one against Montreal. With that said there is no need, in my view, to belabor the point – if […]
Let the games begin anew… With a slight break to include a ‘not-so-friendly’ against Monarcus, the Portland Timbers kick off game 18 of their, one game at a time, journey this Sunday afternoon against Columbus. Plenty of off-pitch story-lines of late but you’ll see none of them here; I will stick with my routine […]
