    Not sure if there are any soccer shows in Portland, but we'll be talking about Spencer being named manager of the Timbers tomorrow.

    The show is called The Orange Slice, we're streaming live 7-9pm CT today on 1560thegame.com.

    Feel free to give us a call 713-439-1560. Might be good to hear what the Portland fans think of their first MLS coach.

    Cool, wish I could call in... I lost my voice from being sick. Still sick as hell.

    We do have a soccer show on 95.5 The Game here in Portland called "Talk Timbers" on Tuesdays, usually at 6 or 7. Great show hosted by John Strong who used to capo for the Timbers Army before entering a career in radio. He's actually producer of the show prior to it called the Bald Faced Truth which is the highest rated radio talk show in Oregon. Good lead in.

    Stop talking nonsense from before your time. John was never a capo in the TA.

    According to HIM he was. According to HIM. I've had one conversation with the guy, asked him about his involvement with the TA.

    By the way, why are you such a pompous self-righteous dick on the internet, I've always wondered? We need to have a beer so I can have the opinion of you that many share, that you're a good guy.

    According to him, the TA need lecturing to every couple of weeks so he can butter his way into an MLS PBP gig. According to him, the morale in the locker room is fantastic.

    Grain of salt.

    Did the TA even have capos back when John Strong was a regular in the front row? That was ages ago.

    No. As far as I remember we didn't have capos until the Wilkinson era and Strong was long gone before Agnello left.
