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.

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.

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.
