Not shocked by the scoreline. Didn't watch again and I am happy I didn't.

Stop watching this team. Especially at home games. Gio needs to go. He is the biggest problem. I have said it since the start of the season. This team has no idea what it is doing on the field. In any aspect of the game. Almost every team plays better team soccer. Stop watching and you will feel better.

I know this is another disaster, and it has been grueling, and what I'm going to say is not going to be popular on this forum...

but we're still #10 and therefore have some small chance of making the playoffs.

If we manage to somehow stagger over that line, folks will point out that Gio got us there, his future with the Timbers guaranteed, and, along with making the final year before last, justified.

Makes me wonder how terrible the team would have to be to actually bring about his ouster.

We aren't there yet, and might not get there.

I really like Reynoso, both the player and the person. That’s the only positive thing I can say about this game.

I said it earlier but as a season ticket holder there is no way I can justify spending my hard earned money on this. Won’t do it.

Well that could have gone better.

Female commentator saying standing in front of the ball is a yellow card is hilarious. That happens every game. Not it ain’t

Why Paredes? Our problem is we have too many legitimate players available?

So I'm watching Guatemala v Canada right now. 21" and no score. I know McGraw wants to keep playing for the Canucks as long as possible BUT I hope they get eliminated after the group stage so he can get back quick and save us from having to see Mabs jog around.

I did that a few weeks ago. I still get the scores.

Is Portland currently the worst team in MLS?

I didn't even have time to say Jazzy was too timid on that 3rd goal. Ugh.

Thorns on soon to maybe get the bad taste out of your mouth.

Can you tell me where that setting is?

Well, I was expecting a nightmare, and the boys didn't let me down. Where was Mosquera on that one?

I think the days of expecting D Chara to singlehandedly save our collective ass are over. Actually, it has been for a while. But jthat goal just made it crystal for those still willing to believe.

Expand full comment

That’s unfortunate. Bad giveaway from Chara there

It doesn't hurt as much as it used to, so there is that

Age has caught up to D. Chara.

I wish I could watch. Is the AppleTV app the absolute shittiest app available? I turn it on an hour and a half late and it immediately tells me the score. I don’t wanna know the score I want to watch the game. Then it crashes. I reload it and now I can’t watch any of it. All I have on the screen is a frozen commercial

Miller is such a nice presence back there as opposed to Mabiala. Why we’ve been playing Mabiala over Miller at CB is crazy to me, Miller is so much better

For as much grief as Mabs gets, those first two are on Bravo, IMO.

God Bless Boli, if for no other reason to make this interesting. Nothing like having the home team dominate, only to concede to test their mettle

Expand full comment

4 goals in 6 starts is a damn nice tally, especially on a bad team that struggles on offense. I really hope we keep him around next year

Expand full comment

False hope springs eternal.

Got one back. Good for Boli. We'll see if Minny collapses.

Expand full comment

At least Boli is MLS quality and has, apparently, ignored coaching. If he was coachable he wouldn't have scored in the last month.

Expand full comment

Boli can be a killer when we let him.

Third Timbers goal!!!

Hey! We did something!

Expand full comment

I thought Paredes had a knock? So we're playing injured players,now? What gives?

Expand full comment

Half thought Gio was gonna be Gio and take Boli off instead of Niezgoda

Good lord. Absolute garbage of a team.

Leaving for the Thorns game and I don't even feel guilty about it. Although that game could be an adventure too.

We’ve totally lost our shape and there’s an air of we’ve given up.

Bravo looked up field and had absolutely no one to pass to

So he took Mabs off and putin Mosquera. Miller playing cb. Like, he could have done so at the start. As I said, rearranging the chairs on the Tittanic.

I’m good with having one of our best players on the pitch, but for Mabs? Lol.

Lots of defeated body language coming out of the locker room.

Keep your heads up boys! We still got this

This team is so, so, so bad. It's like watching 2012 all over again without the assurance that the team has just recently joined the league and is bound to get better.

I can't remember the last season where I wasn't sure at the start of every game that I'd see a set piece goal by the other team. That's just atrocious coaching. Even athletically, physically outmatched players shouldn't be giving up all these set piece goals. But game after game, year after year, Timbers players have no idea how to defend on set pieces. It makes me feel bad for Ivacic who is a tremendous goal stopper.

Spenny did better than this and got canned. WTF does Gio have on Paulson? It’s getting ridiculous …

Watching from the stands here in Minnesota; I was really hoping for a competitive game, but at this point in the season ‘I should have known better, but I’m getting what I deserve... awowawowawo’

Expand full comment

Props to Minnesota for celebrating an OG appropriately.

We haven’t scored more than 1 goal in 85 years so this one is over. Or extra over, as it was over when they lined up without Evander.

Expand full comment

Does Gio have a plan to score goals? Or is this “team” built to run around and hope?
