The summer of unrest has descended upon us, bringing in the usual speculations subdued by delays in transfer activities, caused by the Euros and worsened by terribly bad weather. There are not many things worse than getting up on a Saturday morning and realizing that there is no footy and it is raining outside.

Introducing Star and Stripes FC... for all things US Soccer

Here at Stumptown Footy HQ we try to keep up on the latest USMNT news and events, but to be perfectly honest a lot of that escapes us as we maintain our laser focus on the Portland Timbers. And while we'll continue to try and keep you guys apprised of the big USMNT games and events, there's now a new home on SB Nation for all things US Soccer.

Portland Timbers Trade Troy Perkins to Montreal Impact for Donovan Ricketts - Stumptown Footy

Is this the start of a fire-sale/complete rebuild for the Portland Timbers? With a new coach coming it's going to happen soon, so why not start now and stockpile draft picks and allocation money?

Portland Timbers Man of the Match: Really? Edition [Poll]

Stumptown Footy at related • 1 view

Some will still point to the Cal FC loss as the worst game in the Timbers history as a Major League Soccer club, but last night's 5-0 loss that knocked the Timbers into last place in the league has got to be up there. Positives were few and far between and even the optimists here at Stumptown Footy had a hard time picking out someone to praise.

Portland Timbers @ Colorado Rapids Player Ratings: Here We Go Again Edition

Player ratings for Sunday's match won't be quite as in depth as you're probably used to. This is primarily because we four writers here at Stumptown Footy are running into ourselves trying to finish up the post game coverage of the Colorado game while also getting all our preview game material ready for tomorrow's game.

Troy Perkins Appreciation Thread

Stumptown Footy at related • 0 views

Yesterday we saw the departure of Troy Perkins to the Montreal Impact. Truth is, he was a great player who both really loved the team and the city that we all endear so much. It's for this reason that he became such a huge fan favorite here in Portland, even if he wasn't the best keeper in recent months.

Portland Timbers Man of the Match: Tin Can Edition [Poll]

Stumptown Footy at related • 1 view

After a 1-0 loss to the least inspiring team in MLS, it certainly isn't easy to single out any one player for their contributions. The defense gave up numerous soft chances, the attack never got going, and the midfield was culpable all around. Still, the Stumptown Footy editors put our heads together to pluck our picks for Man of the Match out of the morass of the Timbers' performance.

MLS 2012 Scheduling Woes: Why I'm Already Sick of the Unbalanced Schedule

Stumptown Footy at related • 0 views

Earlier this year it was announced that MLS would adopt an unbalanced schedule to adapt to the Montreal Impact joining the league. Said announcement was met with groans and sighs from soccer purists all over the country. Fans who enjoy the European leagues seemingly felt the frustration more than the rest of us for the obvious reason that it brings another degree of separation between MLS and the sport standard.

MLS Western Conference Week 14: The Timbers Bump

Here's a bizarre little anomaly.

So far this year, the Timbers have not lost to a team that had won its previous match, nor have they beaten a team coming off a loss.

Even weirder: every time the Timbers have lost this year (six times), the winning team has gone on to win its next game.

UEFA Euro 2012 Weekend Discussion Thread

I really should have posted this yesterday, but got wrapped up in silly stuff like school. In any case, continuing on with our "coverage" of the Euro 2012 competition going on, here's Stumptown Footy's OFFICIALLY unofficial discussion thread for the weekend's games. The idea going forward will be to have a new discussion thread every few days for the games if people actually use them.

It's been an exciting past few months for those of us who write for SB Nation as we've been keeping quite a big secret under our hats.

Rumor Confirmed: Porter to Coach Portland Next Year - Stumptown Footy

Say what you will about how successful it will be, but the Timbers have certainly managed to sign one of the hottest coaching candidates out there in Caleb Porter. From a selfish perspective, we can rest easy knowing that Porter will at least finish out the year of coaching DeAndre Yedlin.

Leading up to today I was being very indecisive (no sarcastic comments needed!!!) about where to go to get my footy fix. Do I put my groundhopping hat on or do I put my Oadby Town hat on?

Some A League Thoughts

When it comes to countries nutty about sport, few are nuttier than the Australians. Australia; where a horse race can bring the county to a standstill; where men in tight, very tight shorts chase an odd shaped ball are often cheered on by 70,000 nutty spectators; where two types of rugby are popular and they excel in both.

Liverpool introduce toothy new mascot to ‘engage’ young kids

Dirty Tackle at related • 0 views

Liverpool launched a new mascot, dubbed Mighty Red, in an attempt to combat the likes of Gunnersaurus and Stamford the Lion for the fleeting attention and momentary devotion of small children who are told that they are football fans. The giant liverbird, which appears to have a pair of large teeth-like strips in its mouth, made its debut at a children's party in Liverpool.

Well, that was disappointing wasn't it? I could talk about the fact that the Timbers were run ragged, or that the defense that has been the toast of the town let in three goals, or that nobody know what the heck happened with Franck Songo'o in the 38th minute, but I will try not to; that is for the recap and the player ratings.

The Timbers' win over the Seattle Sounders yesterday was an epic one. There were goals, there were fights, there was an epic tifo, and in the midst of all that there were some fantastic performances put in by the players. With that in mind, the editors here at Stumptown Footy thought we should recognize those performances by each declaring our man of the match.

I mean, practices are interesting and all, but without some sort of action, game, transfer etc. to back it up with they can get a little dull. As such, we'll be incorporating a bit more off topics discussions and in depth analysis over the next couple weeks starting today!
