On a night where so many results went well for Timbers, this result and the goals given up are a significant disappointment. I will agree with others that this team has shown itself to be suddenly very proficient at scoring but I’ve always been partial to a very solid defense and the performance last night in that regard left a very bad taste in my mouth. And honestly the defense lapses that we saw had nothing to do with over extending ourselves on offense. They were just brain-fart plays. How does one guy get an open header between 4 defenders...? And yes teams have figured out who the weaker corner back is on this team defensively. Mosquera’s got to up his game defensively or get sit out or get moved up the pitch and someone else do his defensive duties.

So, I'm critical af when it comes to my Timbers, but I just have to say, we are playing a competitive, fun style of football and we are in a position to make some waves in the playoffs. My point being, when the calendar flipped to July, I didn't expect anything close to this. A result away to LA, even the shitty LA is something I'm good with. Fucking RCTID!

Shoutout to Cincinnati for going from worst to shield.

Still gotta work on overall compure and focus for a full 90. Still gotta fix the defense. That said, I really really liked that we kept attacking after going down. Gio would have folded like a cheap tent instead of making the effort to equalize. I also liked the subs; we just couldn't convert for the winner. Just gotta hope Paredes is ok. But at least we got a point and that's better than a L.

One of my favorite things to watch is a good counter-press and Timber2.0 have it.

Had three great chances to win it at the end there, damn. I’ll take a point on the road though, especially with how that game went. It says a lot though when we get a hard fought tie on the road and we feel disappointed because we expect more from the team at this point. That’s a really good feeling

Would have been nice to capitalize with how things shook out in our favor earlier in the day, but a road point will do.

Ugh. Today's games went our way. This win really would have set us up for a good chance to top 4 to end the season. Now we gotta see what happens with all the games this Wednesday. Everyone pray for good fortune on Wednesday.

So many wasted chances

Uh oh here comes Mabs. That said, he's solid on headiers so maybe part of MJ's thiking.

Endless crosses has never been our thing. Wish we would stop crossing it so much right now. Our turn around has been great because of our build up to goals. We should continue that.

Sorry..maybe just me..but I don't want to hear strategies for Galaxy to make the playoffs from a national "neutral" broadcast team.

This is one of blancos best games off the bench this year.

We want it more right now. There were times this year we looked like we wanted to be at home more. This is a good thing to see from us.

Blanco and Boli. At least MJ recognizes we are down a goal and need to keep attacking.

Mosquera plays like Asprilla years back..raw talent..needs discipline

We’re getting Dickerson-ed tonight.

So the Galaxy announcers gave crossed over into fandom

We need some subs. We look tired

Paredes goes out and we give up two goals. Maybe we can handle chara out but chara and Paredes is an ask. It has shaken our midfield

Expand full comment

Mosquera certainly had a forgettable half; hopefully he gets told in the locker room to start being interested in defense. We have a short bench so I guess Miller would be next man up. And Mabs at cb. Otherwise, not much depth for the back line. Guess the front six just gotta score another goal or two.

Big big challenge for Miles Joseph for the rest of the game, the Galaxy are doing very well to disorganize our defense and midfield and finding open pockets all over the place. Positional tactics gotta change and we need to get on the ball more, especially Moreno

What in the actual fuck are our CBs doing? One of the worst defensive showings I’ve seen this year, including when we were rotating in random T2 players.

Expand full comment

Mosquera’ s side is wide open the entire half.

Expand full comment

Shambolic defense so far

Expand full comment

yikes. 2 different guys could have had that one. Set piece defending is a plague we'll never solve.

Expand full comment

Yep, same old defense. Still can't close down attackers. Good thing our own attack is matching up. This match right now is a shootout.

Wasn’t it a 5-2 win in LA that sort of started the 2015 run? That’s on the table tonight.

5-5 game anyone?

At least the Galaxy can say they didn't give up that goal due to a handball. Just ask Kai Wagner.

Well that makes me feel a lot better. Funny how when you play better, you get lucky more. Gotta make your own luck

Pinball goal. I'll take it

Mosquera just has no interest in defending...

Well, at least Paredes is walking. That said, I'm about to switch to the Spanish feed so I can save myself from Bretos or whoever.
