Thursday's practice started off with a standard warm up followed by passing drills emphasizing game-like motion and intensity. After half an hour the team closed practice to play a full field game of eleven vs. eleven, their first of the year. Although we didn't get a chance to see the formations that they were using, check out Wednesday's training report for some good possibilities.

The most notable aspect of the forthcoming SB Nation MLS Power Rankings is the ability to judge if people are paying attention to the league as a whole, late to make adjustments or just not believing that recent form matters. There are two teams that should show positive movement on this front (Crew, Dallas) and there are two teams that deserve negative movement off of recent form (Revolution and United).

Portland Timbers vs. Colorado Rapids Player Ratings: No Longer Last Edition

Well what do we have here? Could it be... should I say it? Oh what the hell, I'll say it. Could it be that the Portland Timbers have found themselves in the midst of a winning streak? I don't want tog et everybody's hopes up being that it's only two wins, both of which were at home, but I think it's safe to say that the Timbers' performance during those two games were markedly better than they were in the months since John Spencer left.

The Portland Timbers held a closed practice today at the team's Beaverton training facility, but like yesterday very little attention was being paid to what was happening on the field.

Rumor Confirmed: Porter to Coach Portland Next Year

Stumptown Footy at related • 1 view

The waiting is over! I can't tell you why but i really think this could be a great hire. Porter turned down an MLS head coaching position once before in 2009 but this time Caleb felt if was a better fit and a much better situation. Hopefully his instincts are correct. This also explains why Portland has gone to a 4-3-3 and has started using Darlington Nagbe differently.

Akron wundercoach Caleb Porter breaking his contract that runs through 2020 and taking the top spot on the bench on the sideline at Jeld-Wen.

It's a splashy hire, but anything but a secure it's somewhat analogous perhaps to when Rick Pitino went pro after many years at the helm at Kentucky (or even Providence for that matter).

SoccerInsider tends to be on the money with these types of rumors. Can't say I mind hearing the Timbers interest him. While unproven at the professional level, his raising of the Akron program to national title levels and the grooming of such players as Mattocks, Zakuani, Bunbury and our own Darlington Nagbe certainly would bode well for his prospects.
