All I have to say is this there is no better goal celebration in the Soccer World than in Portland

I think we have a pretty good atmosphere here in Toronto, but every time I see tifo clips from Portland I become truly jealous. It's extremely high on my list of places to go and see a game.

LA's defense is an absolute mess right now. I'm not complaining, though.

Granted, they've only played 3, but they're last in the West. That just looks... odd.

Jen-Wen Field is the only arena in North America that comes close to matching the atmosphere in Europe and Latin America.

Their fans are the reasons why the Timbers are my favorite MLS team.

Deadspin has a great video up of Timbers fans. http://deadspin.com/5828249/soccer-fans-in-portland-still-behaving-curiously-like-soccer-fans-in-any-city-outside-the-united-states

Pfff, but whenever fans can't attend games in Europe it looks JUST like an FC Dallas home match! :P

I love that the Timbers present the slab to the goal-scorer after the match.

As a Sounders supporter, I'll say this: We'll celebrate trophies, and they can celebrate with slabs of wood. ^_^

Toronto FC and Santos Laguna in the second leg of their CONCACAF Champions League semifinal tonight. 1-1 aggregate going in, and TFC scores an away goal less than 15 minutes in!

... and it went downhill from there... Well, hopefully TFC gets out of the city alive ^_^

If it's any solace, Santos did the exact same thing to Seattle when the Sounders went down there. They're probably gonna win it all.

Also, I'm rooting for Hercules Gomez from this point forward. As long as he wins something, I'll be happy.

After seeing the schedule, the date I am waiting for is May 12th... That's when Houston opens up BBVA Compass Stadium to the world. I like seeing new stadiums and the fact that this game will be televised helps that.

I too can't wait to see a game at this urban soccer gem. MLS has come a long way since the days of Frisco & Commerce City. Hopefully DC & NE follow Houston's lead and build in the city and not the suburbs.

I don't know what looks better, the interior or the exterior. Great-looking stadium all around.

As is this New Yorker.

That would look gorgeous in Greenpoint, trimmed in kelly green instead of orange...

This Canadian Derby has been a good match so far. Neither team is particularly good but theres some hard physical soccer going on on the carpet at the O.

TFC's defense is so exposed without Frings though.

Eckersley is a great little player who gives 100% all the time but the rest of the back line still needs an upgrade. I can't wait for Adrian Cann to return.

I'm watching the Sporting Kansas City-Los Angeles game... You mean to tell me that with the kind of firepower the Galaxy have with Keane, Donovan and Beckham they would only have three shots so far?

Crazy.

Back spasms prevented Beckham from making the trip to Kansas City and Donovan's just getting back into shape after a quad injury. That said, Kansas City's defense did frustrate Kean and Edson Buddle.

Quakes take down Whitecaps 3-1. Off to a 4-1 start. Best start ever for the Quakes.
