The Portland Timbers visit the LA Galaxy tonight in their second ever exhibition match as an MLS team – check out the match preview at Dropping Timber. Friday night in their first ever exhibition match as an MLS team the Timbers drew 1-1 with the Ventura County Fusion.
Unfortunately that first match had a casualty: Bright Dike, who ruptured his achilles tendon. The good news is that his surgery was successful and if all goes well with his recovery he could be back on the pitch in 6 to 9 month.
Also in player news, the Belfast Telegraph reports that the Portland Timbers are trying to lure Northern Ireland international Jamie Mulgrew stateside.
Soon we’ll all be able to plan our summers, as the MLS has finally declared the 2011 MLS schedule will be released on Thursday, February 10th.
At PGE Park the seats and the turf are being installed, which is a good sign because, for what it’s worth, SBNation declared PGE Park the #1 MLS Stadium “situation” for 2011.
