P.S. have also been reading about wristbands. If we are not too worried about exact location can we not bother queuing for these and still get into the home end ok?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but wanted advice for three visiting English chaps for the fixture in the 20th vs Minnesota.

- I take it for atmosphere we are best to book GA supporters tickets in the standing Timbers section?

- can you drink in the ground (you can in the uk, but not when in your seats / watching the game)

- is there a ‘home pub’ to have a few warm up drinks near the ground or is there any kind of build up / Tailgate type action as with NFL?

Thanks in advance

James

I just wanna cry...we' a 2nd half team and tonite we were a first half team that couldn't kill off this match. If anyone wants to start a gofund to riase $$$ for a fat transfer fee so we can buy a real live starting cb in the winter or offseason not a project but a Chiellini like player that can jelp us 352 then let me know so I can contribute. Every time I see a certain nae on the team sheet I already know we're playing a man down.

Ref doesn’t even add any extra time. Sigh

RB missing in action? Check! Slow cb? Check! Equalizer? Check! How long do we have to tolerate incompetent defending?

I knew Mabs would cost us at least one goal. Worst fucking CB in the fucking league.

For gawds sake we let Will Btuin get into a position to take a point blank shot. This back line...

Is Asprilla fully healthy? I don't want to play him if he's not ready. Or am I just being paranoid because of all the injuries?

So good from Boli initially but then a really awful miss. That’s rough. Would much rather see Nathan come on instead of Niezgoda rn

Love Franck's energy and work rate, but the finishing just isn't there after the first goal.

Ouch. That'll haunt him.

Much needed goal, we haven’t been playing well, Bravo especially

Whoa. Bravo, Bravo. What placement!

Totally expected Bravo to sky that. So happy he didn't

absolutely anemic offense

And why the hell is Zuparic playing fb? Why do we have fullbacks who aren't playing their position?

Expand full comment

Bravo is really a winger/wingback playing fullback. Yeah, yeah but whatever defense he plays with the Argeentina u23 isn't the same as playing with us. He needs to be pushed further upfield and let him offer width and attack. We need fullbacks who are sturdy on defense and more positionally aware back there.

Whole back line seemed misshapened there. Yikes.

Need to find a second goal.

Don't think 1 is enough.

Bravo has been off today

Expand full comment

Haven’t been a fan of the way we’re playing so far, don’t have enough in the middle going forward. Bravo playing super thin almost as a third center back at times with Moreno dropping deep. I dunno, it just isn’t clicking for me. Loria also ain’t cutting it out there. But happy to be winning and I know we can play better

Timbers 1-nil at the half

Expand full comment

No Druissi so it has been easier for us and maybe I'm on a caffeine high but it does seem like we dominated? Evander was quite influential and looks like he is settling in. I dunno but surely we might have had the edge in possession or at least close to 50%.

What a piece of service, what a wiff

Dime and great finish by Zuparic!

What. A. Ball.

Very nice ball played by Evander to Boli. Really like the way Boli gets into position. He is very aggressive with his movement in and around the box.

Expand full comment

Boli looking good so far

Does the picture seem dark or is it just my tv?

Expand full comment

Did we give up wearing our green kits?

Expand full comment

Why are we wearing pink at home, again? Pink is not a Timbers color. I'll be so glad when we get rid of these kits.

Wish I was at the match shooting pics tonight but not feeling great so am staying home, but this is a great opportunity to keep our recent momentum going.

No Driussi! That is massive. We need to win this game

Mabiala vs Cascante..who's going to be the worst cb on the pitch tonight? I dunno about you folks but the Ayala news was probably expected but is kinda crushing. I'm exhausted just thinking about all the iinjuries we've accumulated so far. It is a long season and we just need to keep going, I guess. I just hope we can contain Druiussi. Try not let us down, Larrys!

Julio cascante IS playing

I thought he was injured

I guess the injury gods blessed both sides this week

Walking to the match. Expecting Timbers will bring it

Going to be fascinating which team shows up today. The team that can’t connect on passes and just sits back. Or the strong teamwork of the past couple games that pushes and makes things happen.
