Bemused Spencer blasts Sounders as full of excuses

Coach questions Seattle's reasoning


Quote:
“It was like they had 50 excuses written down before the game about why they didn’t beat us three- or four-nil at home,” Spencer said. “Of the four players [Schmid] mentioned, three of them wouldn’t have made the [starting] team anyway.”

“Never once did I feel we were in any trouble of losing the game at all,”

“Next time we go up there, we’re going to take plenty of towels so we can dry the field off for them before the game,” Spencer said “And take plenty of tissue paper so they can dry their eyes after the game"

Timbers outplay Independiente, win 2-0 in friendly

First-half goals from Zizzo, Umony topple Sudamericana champs


PORTLAND, Ore. — Sal Zizzo and Brian Umony scored first-half goals as the Portland Timbers beat Club Atlético Independiente 2-0 in a friendly on Tuesday at JELD-WEN Field.

Despite playing reserves at all but one position, the Timbers outplayed the Argentine club, who are the defending Copa Sudamericana champions. Portland dominated possession and enjoyed an 8-4 shot advantage in the first half.

It was Timbers' only victory in their four exhibition matches.

Timbers reserves have been excellent early in the team’s last two friendly matches. Against West Bromwich Albion on July 20, Portland outplayed the EPL side in the first half and led 2-0 on goals by Eddie Johnson and Peter Lowry before losing 3-2.

Portland once again was the best team early in the match Tuesday.

Timbers, FC Dallas swap young MFs Hall, Alexander

Portland grab center-mid Alexander, while winger Hall goes to FCD


Western Conference foes FC Dallas and Portland Timbers pulled off a swap of young midfielders on Friday as both teams head into the stretch run.

Heading Portland’s way is second-year player Eric Alexander, a 23-year-old from Indiana University who played a crucial role in FCD’s run to MLS Cup as a rookie in 2010, but has been unable to lock down a regular starting job in 2011. Alexander’s been used on both the right and left side of midfield, but is primarily a two-way midfielder at home in the center of the pitch.

Alexander, who earned his first US cap in January, was losing the fight for playing time to new arrivals Andrew Jacobson, Ricardo Villar and Daniel Cruz.

Spencer, Portland shoot down advance from Colorado
Rapids come knocking, but Scotsman tells Timbers he's committed



PORTLAND, Ore. – It’s always nice to be wanted. And as far as Gavin Wilkinson and the Portland Timbers organization are concerned, wanting is about as far as the Colorado Rapids' overtures toward head coach John Spencer will go, thank you very much.

The Timbers denied Colorado’s official request to speak with Spencer regarding their recently vacated head coaching position, as first reported by The Oregonian.

Wilkinson, the Timbers general manager, told MLSsoccer.com on Tuesday that he and owner Merritt Paulson sat down with Spencer after Colorado came calling on the heels of Gary Smith's departure on Monday.

Portland take a look at fresh faces as 2011 winds down
U-20 goalkeeper Samir Badr among those training with Timbers



most-recognizable name is Badr, a 19-year-old from Fairfax, Va., who signed a reserve-team contract with FC Porto in Portugal in 2009 after graduating from high school. Prior to turning professional, he spent time at the US Soccer Residency Program in Bradenton, Fla., and played for the United States U-15 and U-17 squads. He was also a member of the U-20 team that won the Milk Cup in 2010.

Myers, 26, played for the San Diego Flash of the National Premier Soccer League this season. He trained briefly with D.C. United and the Chicago Fire prior to arriving in Portland.

Altman, 24, scored three goals this year for the NASL Champion Minnesota Stars in 27 appearances. Kamara, a 17-year-old native of Sierra Leone, featured last year for FC Kallon of the Sierra Leone Premier League. He was also recently on trial with Fredrikstad FK in Norway

Jewsbury: Goldthwaite retirement big loss for Timbers

"Goldie" a true pro, role model on, off field, says Portland captain


PORTLAND, Ore. – When Portland Timbers defender Kevin Goldthwaite called it a career on Monday, he said he had zero regrets.

But for the Timbers, the seven-year veteran's retirement will be a loss in more ways than one.

“He was one of the veteran guys that I was pretty close to on the team here and a guy who I knew just from playing on different teams and against him," Timbers captain Jack Jewsbury said after Goldthwaite announced his retirement. "Unbelievable guy, great teammate, great professional for the younger players on the team to look up to.

"And I think, throughout the year, in whatever role he had, he definitely helped bring those guys along at this level. Not only as someone on the field, but off the field [as well], this club will miss him.”

Timbers pay homage to their roots with new third kit
Retro jersey has a distinct 1970s look, feel to it for Portland



PORTLAND, Ore. – Timbers defender David Horst shaved off his mustache a few days too early.

The 1970s retro look he was sporting would have gone perfectly with Portland’s new third jersey, which was unveiled Tuesday at JELD-WEN Field. The kit is meant to pay homage to the club's roots, which go back to their founding in the old NASL in 1975.

"I've got to find out when we're going to be wearing those uniforms, and maybe I'll wear a small pair of shorts and a mustache and grow out a mullet or something like that," said Horst, who modeled the new kit along with attacker Darlington Nagbe during the launch celebration. "Anything can happen. It'll be fun."

New man Valencia wants to make his mark in Portland
“I want to be the difference-maker on the team,” says young DP



Even though the newest Portland Timber, José Adolfo Valencia, will have to wait until early January to join his new club, “El Trencito” (The little train) has already set his No. 1 goal in MLS:

“I want to be the difference maker on the team,” the 19-year-old told FutbolMLS.com by phone shortly after his move to Portland had been made official.

Signed as a young Designated Player – officially the first in MLS – the title carries added pressure for Valencia, who hopes to emulate the success of fellow countryman and now bitter rival Fredy Montero of the Seattle Sounders.
