What to Watch For (Timbers vs. Aston Villa) Tuesday Evening

A game that I can watch and not analyze is a welcome change given all the recent ups and downs for PTFC.

What will make this even more interesting is it will be my first step into the Press Box at Jeld-Wen field.

I anticipate an exciting game and a great atmosphere.

I will pay attention to how our defense works given an expectation that some of our younger lads will get a look-in for this game.
