Derby Day is always important. Especially between Cascadian rival cities Portland and Seattle. But with both clubs losing midweek and the playoff race in the Western Conference tighter than ever, tonight’s match in downtown Portland, Oregon is setup to be a classic.
Will Bruin has been on fire for the Dynamo these past few weeks. His six goals in the last five games have been good for 10 of a possible 15 points. However, the Timbers too have found their stride as of late winning four of their last six matches. With both of these clubs coming […]
The second leg of Portland’s three game road trip takes them to Houston, Texas. A city that is currently absorbed with the fate of their National Basketball Association team, the Houston Rockets. While the Dynamo might not be a true rival, the two cities aren’t exactly on friendly terms after the Portland Trailblazers stunned the […]
Coming home from Montreal with anything less than three points today is a failure for the Portland Timbers. A win puts the PTFC a handful of points away from the top and just outside the playoff line. Losing isn’t something that the Timbers Army will accept.
Timbers striker Fanendo Adi has been linked to Pachuca and Atlas of LigaMX by FOX Deportes’ Mario Aguirre. Portland is reported to have recently turned down a $2 million offer from a Russian club.
It’s that time again, derby day. Portland and Seattle have a rivalry that transcends soccer, sports, and coffee. These two cities are timeless adversaries in almost every way. Trophies and awards are good and well, but almost nothing beats the feeling of seeing the northern fishing village lose.
Last place isn’t where the Portland Timbers want to or should be at. Especially after playing three of four matches at home. The Timbers need all three points tonight, but it isn’t going to be easy facing FC Dallas, even if Portland has historically found success against them. Dallas is fantastic at set pieces, something that continues to take […]
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, […]
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 […]
This match could be a tough one for the Timbers. Midfielder Diego Chara is back in the lineup, but taking on the champs without Diego Valeri and Will Johnson is a tall order. Even so, Portland needs three points from Robbie Keane’s group before Steven Gerrard comes to town. Things will only get harder from […]
The Portland Timbers ended 2014 on a high note with three wins and a draw in the final four matches. Despite losing Will Johnson, Ben Zemanski, and Diego Valeri to leg injuries, Caleb Porter’s retooled and deeper group should be expecting start 2015 strong.
Champions League is done, the Supporter’s Shield is long gone, the US Open Cup resulted in nothing, now all that’s left is a single shot at making the 2014 MLS playoffs. The Portland Timbers need a win tonight in Texas against FC Dallas. Unfortunately, a win alone isn’t good enough to put Portland into the fifth […]
Tonight it’s Real Salt Lake at home. The Timbers have only defeated RSL a single time and in that match there was no Nick Rimando. If Portland wants into the playoffs, they likely have to get three points from the West’s third place club.
Tonight is the second meeting in four days for the Portland Timbers and the San Jose Earthquakes. Last Saturday Rodney Wallace led his club to a 2-1 win thanks to two deflected goals. They weren’t particularly pretty, but points are points and each one matters with the MLS regular season coming to a close. Having ended […]
Tonight’s 8:00 PM PDT match between the Portland Timbers and San Jose Earthquakes is the first of two meetings in two weeks. This week they’re at Buckshaw, next week at Providence. Portland needs a win in both matches. With Vancouver in fifth place by a point, draws just won’t cut it. The loss of captain Will Johnson to […]
