What's the verdict on Boli? Dude seems to get a lot of chances but not find the back of the net. At least 6 in the last couple of games.
CHRISTHIAN MOTHERFUCKING PAREDES.
That’s all I got for now, what a game. Personally I think his best game ever as a Timber, he was absolutely phenomenal. Acosta is second place for MOTM, he was also fantastic. But Paredes ran the show both offensively and defensively
Ok, I feel better about Acosta starting against Col and our chances to get another win. He does seem to have a pretty good sense of his responsibilities and doesn't try to do hero ball. That's more than I can say for some guys. I also did like the fact that we still went for the daggar late when the Quakes pulled one back. As we've seen earlier in the season, the team would just bunker hoping for the point -even at home. Instead, we kept attacking. That's progress. I'm sure the guys are semi exhausted at this point but hopefully some good recovery time in the cryo or whatever they use will help them go another 90 on Sat. Again I ask: who are these guys and what were they doing earlier in the sason?
Who else remembers when the Timbers couldn’t win a game without Charra?
Acosta for MOTM. Man, that guy can read the game well.
What’s Ebo have on his neck?
I swear this team even kills time better than they ever did under Gio. Not trying to pile on, just an observation.
You can throw a shoe at a ref and not get carded? Cool.
This ref has lost the plot
If the Timbers could score and actually put a game to bed, that would be great. Thanks
all right, need another, Timbers!
Is it just me or does Evander look more settled since MJ took over?
This freaking team...damn
How much of a sea anchor was Gio? Same players suddenly acting as if they know what to do, where to be, how to move the ball with intent and coordination.
This freaking team. Nice little finish from Evander.
We should have sacked Gio sooner.
two goals every game since Miles took over!
Boli skying a shot drinking game
Just make Bravo a wingback already and spend more money on defense.
Pro Refs never fail to disappoint
What a first half. We look absolutely dominant. Possessing and then counter pressing really well. We’re clicking really well. Moreno has been awesome, I also love him in the middle but he’s great wherever he plays. And Bingham has been great as well. Just super pleased with the team right now, but we gotta do more in the final third and put some goals up, otherwise it’ll all be for nothing
We need better service on corner kicks. Evander floats it in with no pace and too much height.
JUST tuned in to catch the last second of the hoghlights. Paredes goal? Who were the two with assists—Acosta and Mosquera?
Looks like the team is continuing to play free and loose - not uptight as we 've seen for most of the season. In light of the whole Arena fiasco in New England, do you think there was conflict between Gio and some of the coaching staff? Like how much input did the assistants really have? No opinion on MJ as a head coach cause this is a lame duck situation but he clearly has his own ideas.
SJ xG first half 0.02 lol!
Welp, looks like Acosta realized that he's going to be starting against his old team on Sat and is ramping up his readiness.
The FNG scores!
Paredes just picked up his yellow.
The Fish beat Col 2-0. Doesn't help us all hat much with regard to playoffs but maybe the Rapids will be too depressed to even put up a fight on Sat. I don't want Paredes to pick up a yellow right now but maybe Acosta will be ok playing against his old team. He's doing alright tonite and the Quakes are much better than the Rapids.
When did San José sign Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite as a keeper?
So why is Ivacic persona non grata?
You can tell Blanco is a geezer and also hasn't played that much. Still has some mph on the ball, though.
I need the play by play guy to talk less
Why is Diego not playing?
Go Blanco! Looking forward to watching him. I thought he might. I thought maybe one difference in back line, but glad zup and mcgraw are in.
Not thrilled to see Moreno on the wing, but only because that's a lot of running for him out there. I'd rather see him working the middle, but I get you got to keep guys fresh on the wing.
Rotation for this game will be interesting, I hope Blanco is up for the task. I’m kinda sad Blanco and Mora aren’t starting together, they have great chemistry. But I’m excited to see Boli start, I really hope he can grab a goal to get his confidence up.
Also interesting that Paredes is captain over Blanco. Dude has stepped up on and off the field it seems this year
I hope Acosta is ready to start and looks good. With the rotation on short rest I shouldn’t be surprised to see Blanco start but I am, a little.
If we belong in the playoffs then we should be able to beat San Jose at home, but I am not sure if we do belong. But if we do make the playoffs, is there any team in the west to really be afraid of?
