What happens when Portland Timbers coach John Spencer is doing an interview from the sidelines and is being questioned about subbing in Darlington Nagbe just as Nagbe scores a goal? He gives a goal call to rival the best announcers in the world.
Must have been the luck of the Irish that day as Portland came from behind to tie with FC Dallas 1-1 and have a total of 4 points so far this season. It’s a great start when compared to last season?
I was really excited to actually see all three Portland Invitational games streamed on the Portland Timbers website. Congratulations to the front office for making the tournament a success and being able to have fans watch it live on the website rather than seeing it through tweets. The tournament was action-packed and had huge attendance for a preseason tournament!
Overall I think the Timbers were amazing in their preseason,including the tournament. They never lost a match with 3 ties and 4 wins. They only allowed two goals (one of which was an own goal). They improved on their defense and their offense as well, but its far from perfection at this point. A couple of articles in the Oregonian have scores on how each player did in the games of the Portland Tournament.
I cannot wait till First Kick this weekend knowing that I am excited for the Timbers playing the Philadelphia Union. It will be very interesting and John Spencer has some difficult choices to make knowing that each position has some huge depth:
Who will be the starting striker with Kris Boyd: Perlaza, Nagbe, or Dike?
Who will be another central defender: Futty Danso or Mosquera?
Who will start right defense: Rodney Wallace or Mike Chabala?
