90 Minutes in 90 Seconds - May 2nd, 2015 (Video)


You know the Timbers’ season isn’t going well when fans are starting to get pissed off at star Darlington Nagbe.When Timber-turned-Whitecap Pa Modou Kah handballed his way into a Timbers penalty kick midway through the first half to collective Army laughter, Nagbe bounced his shot off the side post. Following a heart-wrenching loss to the archrival Seattle Sounders last weekend, all the beer ...   More

90 Minutes in 90 Seconds —Timbers Vs. Galaxy [VIDEO]

Timbers Lose 2-2.

The boys from Hollywood brought heartbreak to the Rose City on Sunday afternoon. Many Portland Timbers fans were last seen listening to Elliott Smith’s Between the Bars over and over again with tears streaming down their face, sobbing especially during that part about people “that push and shove and won’t bend to your will.”A 1-1 tie seemed possible until Fanendo Adi, the forward who originally ...   More

Timbers Fans, Mapped

I attended my first Portland Timbers game in 2001 when the pre-Timbers Army “Cascade Rangers” were about 10 members strong. We gutted the Seattle Sounders, 2-0. Because I loved the team and    More

Timbers Preview: Portland Vs. Real Salt Lake

portland timbers logo

If the Portland Timbers can't finally beat Real Salt Lake in Sandy, Utah, they should just stop trying. Real Salt Lake is the Timbers' bete noir, the team they can never seem to overcome. Portland (3 wins, 4 losses, 7 draws, 16 points) won the first meeting between the two, at home in 2011, but since then it has not won a match against Real, including in last season's Western Conference finals. Now, ...   More

Timbers Preview: Portland Vs. Vancouver Whitecaps


A month ago, things looked so hopeless for the Portland Timbers that I was penning what felt like a premature eulogy for their season. Eight winless games into 2014, the Timbers' post-season possibilities looked somewhere between remote and hopeless. But the Timbers spent May turning their fortunes around, playing five games without losing one and notching two big road wins against the New York ...   More

Fresh off their first victory of the season, the Portland Timbers will face a severe test on Sunday: arguably the league's most talented side, the LA Galaxy. Like Portland, the Galaxy was eliminated in the playoffs last year by Real Salt Lake. Coach Bruce Arena appears to have reacted to the setback by remodeling his team in the image of the team from Sandy, Utah.In terms of the standings, LA ...   More

Timbers Preview: Portland vs. DC United


Two winless months into the season, the Portland Timbers finally hit rock bottom after last weekend’s draw in Houston. A tie with the Dynamo left the Timbers at the foot of the league table after fellow strugglers, the Montreal Impact and San Jose Earthquakes, picked up their first wins to climb above Portland. Now, the Timbers are desperate for a win at home on Saturday at Providence Park against ...   More

Yellow Card

It’s not too soon for a warning: The Portland Timbers, absent big change, are headed for trouble.

The Portland Timbers are supposed to be one of the dominant teams in Major League Soccer. The 2013 campaign saw the team soar to the Western Conference final after an abysmal performance a year    More
