If you score 3, you should win. If you have a clean sheet you should win. 6 points we’ll be looking for later.

Lot of folks happy with the point. I think we left two on the table. If you clean sheet the other guys, you got to come up with the goal and take three.

Road point, clean sheet. I'll take it!

Pretty much a snooze fest, but I’ll gladly take a clean sheet and point on the road!

Jazzy continues to deliver.

Boy, Evander is smoove on the ball 🤩

This game, though, did remind me of early season PTFC — really disconnected for long stretches, pretty awful passing, and struggling to keep any measure of possession.

But over the last few weeks, we’ve seen they can do better, so hopefully this game was just a glitch in the trend line. But like I said, a road point is a road point.

I actually thought we were better in the 1st half. Conditions weren't exactly ideal. Tbh, I was worried about an injury given the weather and the pitch. At least we got a result and a clean sheet.

0-0 is a fair result. Could have been 1-1 with both teams hitting the left post, but we really didn't play well enough to win, or badly enough to lose.

A shutout is good. I would like to see signs the defense is improving

Point on the road is a point on the road. We didn’t look great by any stretch… buuuut point on the road ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Road point there is not terrible. Hope the guys aren't dead Sat.

Boring game, but points on the road always a plus.

Chara has been off tonight

RSL sure allowing us some space tonight. If we could be better in transition with out passing and make sure to get Evander every chance to create, then I like our chances.

Does anyone know if Zac McGraw completed his service with the Army / West Point?

Ball skipping a ton on the wet field, it’s confusing some of our guys

Anyone else notice rsl overloading on the left? Could be an opportunity for Mosquera if we were smart.

We should try to possess the ball

And I came home late knowing that I'd probably missed most of the 1st half. Guess the weather god decided to delay the match long enough that I might only see the first half given that it'll be dinner time in Hawaii. I had to find out the new kickoff time from reddit. Sheesh.

Via Timbers Twitter:

“🚨 WEATHER UPDATE 🚨

Players will return to the pitch at 8:38pm local time for warmups with kickoff to follow at normal cadence.”

RSL Twitter account says 20 minutes warm ups for an around 8 pm start time

Seems like even a streaming service could show league highlights show with a crawl saying “weather delay, will cut to RSL v Portland as soon as resumes”.

It this useless loop that does zero to promote an MLS product. /sarcasm

Love the unchanged lineup. Niezgoda didnt travel with the team due to personal reasons, according to Ryan Clarke
