Heading into tonight's match is about more than the three points that the Portland Timbers desperately need. It's about vengeance. It's about restoring the pride that a team like the Timbers should have given the city that loves them so much. With FC Dallas having outplayed Portland twice at home in embarrassing fashion (4-nil last year, 5-nil just a couple weeks ago) it's time for the Timbers to return the favor and deal Dallas the same kind of humiliating defeat.
