i dont think we've had this kind of thread so, ya. been watching the timbers over the last couple days at the cascadia summit.....yikes. its going to be a season a la RSL 2005 for them. freaking UGLY ass soccer, completely disjointed, no flow in any direction, horrible passing, boot the ball up the field and hope for something to happen. their undefeated preseason record is completely misleading, just like DC United last season. its going to be fun going to games this year at PGE, the atmosphere will be incredible and it will be like a party. but damn the soccer is going to be unwatchable, especially on a tiny turf field like PGE has. the timbers are lucky to have a hardcore dedicated fanbase which has been sustained through both good and bad years before. as for seattle and vancouver, seattle might be ok but they pretty average yesterday. kasey keller looks like he has really lost a step. vancouver is going to be worse than portland.
