Cascadia Cup 2015 Opener: Portland Visits Vancouver

Three draws in three games seems worse than it is for the Timbers. Sure, they should have taken all three points from the Galaxy and it was tough to see Nick Rimando torched by Denmark, but Portland hasn’t looked that bad so far. Their makeshift midfield has shutdown their opponents far better than I expected, […]

Sounders Down in Dallas

A bye week is supposed to bring rest, relaxation, recovery, and resolve. But, this past bye week for the Seattle Sounders has been anything but those things. The Sounders were already expecting to miss Clint Dempsey & Marco Pappa to international duty, but they weren’t expecting Deuce to pull his hamstring just hours after he […]

David Beckham’s Group Should Buy The New York Red Bulls

If you have been following the ongoing saga of David Beckham and his quest to place an MLS team back in Miami, Florida, you are well aware of the struggles that he has encountered.

Timbers Play First Away Match in Kansas City

The Portland Timbers have started their 2015 campaign in much the same way as 2014 with two draws at home. Despite the disappointing results, draws against RSL and LAG shouldn’t have anyone calling to blow things up just yet. Nagbe looks dangerous as ever and Adi should be hungry for more coming off a brace […]

Can Sporting KC defeat Portland?

Sporting Kansas City goes into this weekend in a bit of a rough patch to start the season. They drew the New York Red Bulls 1-1 after the Red Bulls scored to equalize three minutes after SKC scored. Then Sporting was on the unfortumate end of an egregious offside call in a 3-1 pounding by […]

DC United Returns from Two Week Hiatus

It feels like it’s been months since DC United beat the Montreal Impact 1-0 in their MLS home opener. Their subsequent break from MLS play was intended to give them the rest necessary to compete in the Concacaf Champions League semifinals, for which they failed to qualify. DC United fans, myself included, are itching to […]
