Timbers continue undefeated streak with a draw against Chicago
Good teams find ways to win games, or at least not lose them. Nothing could be truer than that statement if you're the Portland Timbers or Alex placed a perfect through ball in Magee’s path. Portland’s LA Galaxy and Colorado. If they beat the Rowdies, add another on the 26th.
If they falter and finally lose a game, it will not be a big deal. What's important is how they handle the necessary work after a loss. If it is anything like what followed the loss to the Montreal Impact, could the Timbers Army be treated with another undefeated streak that goes double digits? Sure they could. However the question should be, how long?
July and August have not been nice to this organization during the past two seasons. July is jam-packed with two exhibitions and four regular season matches. August will be no cakewalk either, with four of the five scheduled games within 13 days.
But if June can be a success, with the proper lessons learned, and with proper form and health, the Timbers could keep their place in the top half of the Western Division. But those are big “ifs.”
Portland returns to regular season play on the 15th of June against FC Dallas. Will they get a win as payback for the draw in Frisco? Let me know…
