New Hat? or Old Tricks? Portland Timbers 2017 Preview

Last years’ end state was horrible; the Portland Timbers, returning MLS Champions, missed the playoffs.  Not good; especially when 60% of  the teams in your Conference make the playoffs. Clearly changes needed to be made. Notable midfield additions include David Guzman, Sebastian Blanco, and the return of Dairon Asprilla. On the defensive side, where the Timbers had […]

Timbers Shake Quakes Again!

In perhaps their best team performance all year the Portland Timbers defeated the San Jose Earthquakes, in the fourth round of the US Open Cup, at Providence Park last night 2 – nil. I don’t offer that lightly – the Timbers have struggled on both sides of the ball this year – not only in finishing chances […]
