Just minutes after the Sounders evened up tonight's score, FC Dallas managed to get the ball into Stefan Frei's net again. A deep cross wasn't dealt with by the Sounders' defense, going right to an unmarked Mauro Rosales near the far post; the former Sounder headed it back across goal and right to Maximiliano Urruti, who headed the ball (unchallenged) past Frei and into the corner.

Once upon a time, Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson tweeted that if the team ever won an MLS Cup, he would buy the Timbers Army a bar. Now it appears that his promise is coming true.

The Timbers announced today that the "Double Post Bar", named for the miraculously missed penalty by Sporting Kansas City player Saad Abdul-Salaam in the 2015 Western Conference play-in game when his attempt struck both posts before bouncing to safety, will open on March 6th at 1:30 p.

We are just one short week into the Portland Timbers' post season and already things have been shaken up down on Morrison Street. With Jorge Villafana sold to Club Santos Laguna, Maximiliano Urruti taken by FC Dallas in the Re-entry Draft thanks to his (allegedly) byzantine contract, and Will Johnson headed out to Parts Unknown, the Timbers' depth chart is in flux.

Timbers Announce Offseason Transactions

After the party is the after party. But, sadly, after the after party comes the morning after.

And in MLS that morning after can be particularly cruel, as some players who won MLS Cup the evening before can suddenly find themselves without a club.

Ultimately, the decision to announce transactions the day after the Cup has nothing to do with the club; the league mandates that clubs announce their first batch of offseason transactions on the Monday after MLS Cup to allow the trade window to open and the re-entry and free-agency process to begin.

Salary Cap Limitations Cause Timbers to Part With Urruti

Stumptown Footy at related • 0 views

In a somewhat unexpected move on Monday, the Portland Timbers declined the option of Maximiliano Urruti after more than two years of strong service to the club. The rationale for the move is straightforward: Portland has paid for two first-choice strikers for the past two years and simply can't afford to continue to do so under the salary cap.
