The Portland Timbers are a soccer team from the quaint inland village of Portland which resides near the mouth of the Colombia River in the Oregon Territory.
Know for their lack of finishing skills, The Timbers are the known as the perpetual bit*h of both the Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps. 2011 will mark the Timbers integration with the fashionable MLS soccer league of the glorious USA.
2006 was a very disappointing season for many reasons for the Portland Timbers, and their fans. The team finishing tied for last in the table with a franchise worst 7-15-6 (27 points) record, the Offensive production was last in the league as the club only netted 25 goals, and the Timbers lost their derby with heated rival Seattle Sounders.
