    He worked with the Timbers youth academy. I don't think he is as good but he won't be bad. MLS Superdraft is next week and Timbers pick will go into the T2 squad which should help.

    2 "Out of market games". As a season ticket holder this annoy's me as it may mean I wont make it to the games (Depending on where exactly they are played). 2 games in Providence Park which is ok but I prefer a snug Merlo field than a mostly empty PP. I really home the offer cheap beer and push those games and get more than 5k in the stadium. But live football is getting close.

    And its in the Timber's "development territory" and hoping to develop a closer relationship. As a T2 season ticket holder, I'm sort of worried that they might move the USL team too Boise if crowds are good/better there. The U23 currently play outside Providence and Merlo field so sort of "out of market" Vancouver, Salem for example

    I don't think there's much to worry about, the whole point of the "2" teams is to keep these guys close so they can learn and practice the same thing as the first team, so if/when they crack the 1st team it's a smoother transition.

    TAMPA, Fla. – A partner of the Portland Timbers since 2013, the Capital Fútbol Club Timbers have announced a stronger affiliation with the MLS club’s PDL franchise ahead of the 2017 season. The Capital FC Timbers will handle the day-to-day operations of the PDL team, which will still compete as the Portland Timbers U23, while the MLS club will provide resources and assist with player recruitment and selection.

    S2 and Whitecaps 2 likely to leave USL. With the way the front office has treated T2 this season I doubt there will be a T2 next year and if there is we could be in Montrael attendance if we do, unless they actually invest in the team. Average attendance this season has been significantly lower than it was last year (1 game with lots of free tickets distorted that average figure). It's not the venue that's the problem, its that they replaced a pro reserve team with a semi-pro u23 team including letting go a bunch of promising talent, most notably Karlton Belmar. 1 season with Swope Park and he is going to MLS. Timbers had a lot of injuries around June and had to rely on a few T2 players who were barely better than PDL standard if at all.
