    Woo hoo! I’m here in Portland. Every omen is against a Loons win, which is why I think it might just happen.

      I hear Portland is a great place to watch a match! I’ve watched enough on TV to know they are loud and proud, but it’s always more intense in person.

  • Kaleb Olson

    I heard “Wonderwall” at work on Friday so I’m feeling a 3-2 win.

  • Troy Kadlec

    So who starts at LB and RB? Looks like Jerry is still dinged. Do you shift Calvo out and leave Boxall and Kallman in the middle with Manley of Burch on the other side? I’m guessing its too soon for Gomez. Looking forward to seeing Darwin on the pitch!

    • Troy Kadlec

      Guess Jerry is ready after all. Ibarra over Nicholson, I’m guessing Sam is still fighting the bug he and Mears had earlier in the week.

  • John Asbury

    This game was frustrating. There were moments that I thought, “hey we’re pretty good.” Then three minutes later it looked like we were the worst team in the world. After two/three games of goals that should have been saved if the keeper was in the right position, I think it’s time for the return of Bobby Shuttleworth.
