The Timbers Army learned last Sunday that a predictable loss is no less painful. Portland was defeated 2-0 by the Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field. The tired and injury stricken backline couldn’t hold off Major League Soccer’s leading attack featuring Clint Dempsey and Gonzalo Pineda. Things won’t get much easier for Portland as they return […]
The Portland Timbers head to Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kansas to take on Sporting Kansas City in the fifth round of the 2014 US Open Cup. This is the first meeting between the two teams so far this season, but it isn’t the last. SKC and the PTFC face each other later this week […]
The Portland Timbers look to bounce back from a disappointing 4-2 loss to Vancouver when they face Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium this Saturday at 7 PT.
The Portland Timbers (3-3-7) return home after back-to-back road wins to face the Vancouver Whitecaps (4-2-5) Sunday at 6PM PT. Three points would mean jumping from sixth in the West to anywhere between fifth and third, depending on Colorado’s result against Houston. A win won’t be easy as the Timbers are playing their third match […]
The Columbus Crew come to Portland in-the-midst of a three game losing streak and a seven game winless streak. They have been held scoreless over the last three and haven’t found the back of the net multiple times in a match since March. Combine this with a patchwork defense due to national team call ups […]
Maxi Urruti did his best Damian Lillard impersonation to lead the Portland Timbers over DC United 3-2 last Saturday night. The Argentine striker joined Gaston Fernandez and Futty Danso as one of three Portland players to score. Three points in the bank moves the Timbers up to seventh in the West and four points away […]
It’s five weeks into the 2014 MLS season and the Portland Timbers offense is just starting to click. This couldn’t come at any better time. Chivas USA currently sits two points above the Portland Timbers. Despite that, Caleb Porter’s group found nothing but success against the Goats in 2013, tallying nine goals for two wins […]
All glory to the MLS disciplinary committee. Their unanimous decision to rescind Michael Harrington’s first ever red card injects some much needed life into the Timbers’ dwindling starting eleven.

Donovan Ricketts and Andrew Weber each gave up a penalty over the span of two minutes in a 2-0 loss to the Colorado Rapids. A karate-kick to the thigh of Deshorn Brown and an arm to Vincente Sanchez’s leg led to Portland’s worst result of their short 2014 campaign.
The Portland Timbers take on the Colorado Rapids in a snowy Dicks Sporting Goods Arena this afternoon. Weather reports put new head coach Pablo Mastroeni’s first home game in the 30 degree range with an 80% chance of snow. With both weather and altitude playing against the Timbers, Caleb Porter is going to need a […]
Gaston Fernandez earned his first ever log slice last Saturday to earn the Timbers a point at home. La Gata's stoppage time goal made up for Jack McInerney’s header in the 64th minute. This week, Portland faces a similarly dangerous striker in Mike Magee of the Chicago Fire, if he plays that is. The Fire […]

March 8th also marks the regular season debut of Gaston Fernandez and Norberto […]
Long live Caleb Porter. For the first time in MLS history, the Portland Timbers enter a season following real success. The 2013 campaign paid off with winning the West, a trip to the conference finals, entrance to the CONCACAF champions league, and awards for both players and coach. The only question remaining is whether or […]
