Match Day: Portland Timbers vs. Chivas USA (28-June-2012)

Portland TimbersThe Portland Timbers (5-11-4) kick off against Chivas USA (6-8-5) at Jeld-Wen Field tonight at 8 p.m.

The match will be broadcast live on Root Sports, 750 AM The Game, and La Pantera 940 AM.

The Timbers’ 2012 season is a tale of woe. Chivas were the cellar dwellers when these teams met in April at Jeld-Wen Field – and Chivas came away with a 2-1 victory. A week and a half ago the Timbers, who are now the cellar dwellers in this equation, suffered a 1-0 loss to Chivas in LA.

Can the Timbers make a decent show of it today? Perhaps they’ll pull out a win in this match, but in my view the season is unsalvageable – let’s play the kids, and seriously, haven’t we had enough of Gavin?

    Would appreciate a link to my official blog site for Portland Timbers with the Columbian Newspaper… here is a link to my most recent blog on the match last night:

    I do in-depth match analysis after games (usually posted the day after given the amount of time it takes me to do analysis and put pen to paper) and I also post my “What To Watch For” about 1-2 days prior to the next game.

    Thanks and best regards,
