    Nice to see Jay DeMerit on D for the Whitecaps, welcome back!

  3. Grant says:

    What stadium is this?

  4. steve says:

    Vancouver does not look good.

  5. cajun says:

    Starfire in Tukwila, about 20-25 min south of Seattle.

  6. steve says:

    Starfire sports complex in tukwila, WA. It’s where the sounders play when they can’t sell out Qwest

  7. Sandra says:

    no. its where the sounders train and play open cup matches.

    most fans want qwest for all games including this one.

  8. GMD says:

    Ryan Pore looks like he wants the left mid spot…playing MUCH better than Jeremy Hall last night.

  9. GMD says:

    And this is the Timbers 2nd XI…uh-oh

  10. Nb5 says:

    Just tuned in. Who scored the first goal?

  11. Nb5 says:

    Nevermind, just saw it on the website!

  12. x4 says:

    No doubt. Is he Vancouver’s captain? According to Wikipedia yes, but I haven’t seen it anywhere else.

  13. Emerald_City_Jason says:

    well, 20-25 minutes south of *downtown* seattle. Only a few minutes from the city limits.

  14. Sir Knox says:

    Can anybody help out with a game update?
    I’m without real Internet tonight
    Much appreciated!

  15. cajun says:

    You’re right, but splittin’ hairs huh?

  16. cajun says:

    Yes, he’s the skipper, they’ve announced it a few times in this match also.

  17. duder says:

    Joe Cannon had an absolute Jedi save against a screamer by Lopez at the end of the match. He was clearly using the force.

  18. Ceez says:

    Not hard to do. *I* can play MUCH better than Jeremy Hall last night.

    Boring match. Timbers second XI looked flat at times, but overall not terrible for a second team. I’m trying to think of some bright spots for Portland… Marcellin, who looked very comfortable at mid and Pore. But Pore was quiet after the first goal. Despite the own goal, Horst had some nice clears… big physical guy who isn’t afraid to mix it up.

    Criticism… I forgot that Johnson and Umony were on the field. Braun struggled at right back… poor first touches, indecisive with the ball. He has some work to do. If Gilbert doesn’t get in soon, the Timbers will be thin at right back. Brown did fine in goal, he wasn’t really tested too much… but I’m worried about his durability.

    Vancouver? If that is their starting XI, it could be a long year for them.

  20. socnow says:

    Final 1-1. You didn’t miss much.

  21. Will says:

    Where were the Southsiders today? There couldn’t have been fifty Vancouver fans in the stadium.

  22. Dizzo says:

    The main suoporter’s group were delayed at the border. That might have impacted attendance.

    Gaining entrance to Fortress U.S.A. isn’t as easy as it used to be.
