News Portland Timbers Sports

Some future questions I will be asking as I attend training sessions

What happens when Songo’o, KAH, Nagbe, Alexander, Chara are all healthy or not sitting due to red cards?

When do Braun, Wallace and Zizzo get more playing time?

What happens to the playing time of Boyd and Jewsbury during a youth movement?

If we want our best players out there are there other systems or formations we can run to better play to our strengths and the strengths of our youth?

Perhaps there are others out there you may be interested in?

PS: To clarify… these are not questions on my list to ask right away; many of these will be answered as the remainder of the season unfolds. Lots to think about as time passes.

Of interest to me though are questions from those youth who play soccer and what things of interest they might have if given the opportunity to ask a professional a question. 🙂
