News
Even in the best of times, there is no harder match for the Portland Timbers than Real Salt Lake. With the Timbers six games into the season and still winless, the game in at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, on Saturday feels like little more than another opportunity for disappointment. Portland (0-2-4, 4 points) has only ever beaten RSL once, with an all-time record of 1-7-3 against the team. RSL ...   More

News
The Portland Timbers’ successful 2013 season was made all the sweeter for the team’s fans by the fact that it came so ostentatiously at the expense of the Seattle Sounders. The Timbers trounced their bitterest rival in the 2013 playoffs, the high point of the season. Portland always feels like the underdog against Seattle, with its bigger supply of money, its larger stadium and bigger crowds. ...   More

News
The reigning MVP of Major League Soccer will be in Portland this weekend as the Portland Timbers host the Chicago Fire March 16 at Providence Park, but spectators probably won't see Mike Magee on the field. Signed in midseason last year, Magee nearly dragged the Fire into the playoffs, scoring 15 goals in 22 games trying to rescue his floundering team.
