It was good to see the Timbers have a good fun game that they won. Great to see Dairon and Seba score, get three points against a good team. Great for the fans. This season won't have some crazy turning point -- it's just not in the cards, I think -- but if it can just have a few more positive arcs like this, I'll be happy, and then we can retool in the off season.

Great night to not worry about the big picture and just win a game to win a game.

Great night at the park

We won with vibes, and just for tonight, that’s okay

At this point? I’ll take the points and run like a thief.

We managed to survive...just barely. Can't believe we wasted that two goal lead that Asprilla gave us. Guy leaves the pitch only to see the side almost completely collapse. But we got a big W for Maestro.

I only ask that we send Loria to some usl team taht can use his chaotic style of play. If Seba can play 45" every week then let him start and maybe sub him out at the half. I don't care but Gio needs to get over it. Play the guys who can give us the most chance to win...Ivacic, Blanco, Moreno.

If I'm Ivacic I'm even more pissed off. The defense was worse than usual. Yeah, it was Columbus but you could tell they were in double panic mode.

Aww, Blanco traded with nagbe

Damnnn we needed that

Yay! Some scary moments but we’re not dead yet!

Who is the guy up in a cupboard that they keep highlighting?

The power of Valeri!!!

IDK how we did it, but LFG!

Time for some timewasting!

We are lucky Columbus is playing terrible.

Yimmi has been great except for in the box... sigh

Most unforced subs in Gio's history

Yimmi really earning that DP money

Oh Yimmi.

Oh, Yimmmi!!!!

Evander is a better defender than mabiala

Say goodbye to at least 2 points. Larrys is coming on.

Expand full comment

OMG. I can't.

Expand full comment

Sigh, of course Gio doesn’t bring on Araujo

Expand full comment

Mabiala is not coming on!

Mabiala is coming on?

Expand full comment

Mabiala? OMG are you kidding me?

Expand full comment

But can we make this stand up? Need 10+ minutes of solid possession…

Expand full comment

Seba...bailing us out like he's done so many times in the past. Turn back the clock, baby!

Thought Blanco was gonna have a Valeri shirt under his jersey

BLANCO! Seems appropriate for Diego's night.

Expand full comment

Blanco. You are beautiful

We’ve clawed the momentum back ever since Valeri came on commentary, how Yimmi misses that chance is beyond me. We’ve missed the guy though. We need to score, we can’t let this game go to waste

Expand full comment

We are so so bad around the 18. Like U6 bad.

Expand full comment

Evander is magic when he’s on the ball, we need to involve him more

Expand full comment

Yeah, just about our luck.

SHOOOT THE DAMN BALL

Expand full comment

Fuuuuuuck!

I keep reminding myself that we're playing Columbus and not Colorado. But geez, the back line is even worse than usual. But Gio proabably thinks it doesn't matter who we play at keeper.

Expand full comment

What in the heck?

Expand full comment

Bingham's coaching isn't getting through

Expand full comment

Asleep on that throw.

Expand full comment

Well done Zelarayan. Columbus has been real fun to watch this year.

Expand full comment

Damn it...no hatty. We were close. And the way we're playing now, we need another goal. Guess Mora gets to show that he is still better than Goda.

Expand full comment

Loria off

Yay!

Expand full comment

No hat, the record is safe

Expand full comment

Let’s just say I’m skeptical that we can make this lead stand up if we’re gonna play like this.

Expand full comment

Really not liking playing Evander as an 8 in a 4-3-3. He’s barely been involved because he’s forced to one side of the field and covering defensively, which is not where he’s good. I want him in a more free role further up the field

Expand full comment

Seeing Paredes and Loria out there killing off our attacks and losing possession makes me cry. Why did Williamson have to have a season ender?

Expand full comment

Dang that would have been a goal

Expand full comment

Columbus just cutting us apart right now

Expand full comment

Others have said it already. But pretty clear the league's passed by Loria. I'm not sure he was ever up to the standard in the first place.

Lucky. Nice job Zac
