I'm sorry that I have to keep repeating myself but gio needs to go. Now!!! This team has no idea how to play a good game of soccer consistently.

Here is my opinion. I think the players can play but choose not to. Look at how they played when they played against quality Liga MX teams. Teams that they know would give them a bump in their reputation if they played well. Then we get back to mls play and they absolutely play like shit. I think they either want an early off-season or they are trying to get gio fired. Cause everything about last year and this year, tell me that this team does not respect their manager. Any player has to know that these kind of games can cost a coach his job. And yet they let it happen again and again and again.

If gio isn't fired soon then fans need to make it happen by boycotting the games

I really though Hou was going to score a touchdown. Seriously, does MP even understand this trainwreck?! We've got folks ready to not renew their season tickets; the possible loss of yet another player to injury; another loss - not a damn point against a mediocre team, and all on three weeks rest.

Only one thing left to say: #GioOutGioOutGioOut.

What a joke. To think I was excited MLS was back. Gio won't get fired, but he should.

#GioOut. He had three weeks to get the team ready for this match. I’m guessing he just spent the time refining his excuses matrix.

That was the only fight put up all night.

10 men without Neizgoda is the same as 11 men with Neizgoda. All good.

For better and for worse, since it's on Apple TV, nobody's watching anyway.

Sadly, I am.

If Houston wins but no one is there in the stands to whiteness it does it count as a win?

Good on Brad Smith, always thought it was a mistake Sounders let him go. Able to "find the game," transition between disruptor/link-up man * sigh* ...feel like we could use someone like him

Hou going for the touchdown. Is the team trying to get Gio fired because giving up 5, 6, or 7 goals is surely sending a signal?

Clark's revenge .

It's pretty bad when I can say "a Houston player got behind the Timbers defense and chipped Ivačič for a Houston goal", and it would only narrow it down to three of Houston's goal on the night.

Mosquera not defending seems to be a problem

Can a coach be fired during a match?

Why is Zuparich still in? Gio want to guarantee a loss next week too? He's already on a yellow, and this game was over 15 minutes in.

Expand full comment

JFC, even when we have a breakaway, we have no clue what to do with it. Just no excuse this deep into the season and after a big tourney with weeks off to prepare.

Expand full comment

Surprised Aruio wasn’t subbed, he has been near a few mistakes and has looked a little lost about responsibilities.

But maybe he’s the only one playing the defensive system the correct way???

Expand full comment

I just realized that's Timbers results are inversely proportional to the quantity of Gio's coaching.

Think about it: extensive pre-season training always results in a slow start. Then, after weeks off on cup break, there's this turd. The more he coaches, the worse the team gets.

Mabiala in! The picture for dictionary entry for "waving the white flag".

Wanna know who is definitely a good choach? Wilfriend Nancy got suspended fo rthe derby against Cincy. Clearly he prepared his team to play. And let's not forget that Zelarayan just left the building. Sure they're still talented but in this league, losing a player like that guy would seriously hamper any team. And the Crew are definitely cup contenders.

Gio OUT.

Ladies and gentlemen....put your hands together for Rasmussen and Caliskan!

So how many times this year (particularly in the last few games) have we heard "(insert name here) slips in behind the Timbers defense, and scores easily"?

Expand full comment

Coach clearly has lost the team, but clearly a few players are putting forth their ‘best effort’ to make sure a change happens

Expand full comment

Would they get fined if they just refused to play the second half? I guess the weeks we had off weren’t enough to get prepared to play another mediocre team.

Expand full comment

Bed shat. Do we even train, watch film or prep strategy? Seems like no.

Expand full comment

This game is an indictment on Savarese. Weeks to prepare for a big match and the defense looks as bad as any game I can remember.

That’s on coaching.

This team needs a new voice in the locker room- a new leader.

Been Gio out all year and still....GIO OUT!!!!!!!!

Traffic cones could do more than that.

Well defense is garbage but we're not getting any foul calls either

So does anyone want to stay for the 2nd half? Like what are the odds we score 4 goals in 45 min?

Is there a mercy rule for HT? Asking for a "team."
