Five Star Akindele, Castillo Route Quakes

Tuesday has been avenged. Goals that seemed so difficult to find in the USOC semifinal were plucked effortlessly from Buck Shaw as FCD throttled San Jose. With two wins already against Pareja in 2014, San Jose could be painted as 2014′s bogey team. But five goals, three coming from Tesho Akindele and two from Fabian […]


Portland Visits Guyana In Club’s First CCL Clash

The Portland Timbers are a long way from home right now. 4,656 miles as the crow (not the chartered jet) flies, to be exact. They took a ten hour plus flight from Boston, MA following a 1-1 draw with the New England Revolution to take on Guyana’s Alpha United in the CONCACAF Champions League’s Group Stage. 


Looking at the Supporters’ Shield Race

Sunday night, after D.C. United finished kicking the Colorado Rapids all over RFK Stadium, I decided to pause and take a look at the Supporters’ Shield race as it currently stands.

The first shot of the game occurred after […]

Right after the match 18 Timbers will head from New England down South to Guyana for their first CONCACAF Champions League match. This trip leads to questions about Portland’s starting XI against a Revs club that […]


Timbers Hold Chivas Scoreless in 2-0 Win

Diego Valeri’s first half curler and Rodney Wallace’s first goal since 2013 put the Portland Timbers up 2-0 over Chivas USA. The win keeps the Timbers in seventh place, tied on points with Colorado and two behind the fifth place Vancouver Whitecaps.


Whitecaps Defeat Champs

After suffering from lack of offensive output for the past few weeks the deadly Vancouver offense started to show signs of its former self. The Whitecaps looked like a team desperate for points and were deserving of their 2-0 victory over the reigning MLS champions. However, Vancouver was not firing on all cylinders and should […]
