I love how Seattle fans dwarf every other clubs supporters in this thread, even the two sides who played in this game lol
Makes me think there's really not much going on in Seattle.
normally it rains gently here, yesterday it was raining hard as fuck. got drenched at the match
Small club mentality indeed
Not what I meant, but go on.
This is worst than the 2019 season. That’s saying something
Does anyone have a link to all of the songs that were played during this game?
Should upload the highlight to Pornhub.
Woah woah woah, still not as bad as Brazil
This was a fun match to be at the park for!
Yeah that was awesome!

Welcome to the club!
I don't know why they're down voting you. Seven goals is a Portland record for a single game. Same as Seattle
Everything is about seattle 🙄
Good job Portland, that was a wild game
This is not a thread of honor
[MLS Communications:](https://twitter.com/MLS_PR/status/1525694165862031360?s=20&t=IjsVrsgMPEC2A_dMLYPcFw) Behind goals from five different players tonight, the Portland Timbers set a club record with seven goals scored, including a pair of braces from Sebastián Blanco and Nathan Fogaça.
The Timbers have scored at least six goals on four separate occasions since the start of the 2020 season.
WTF HAPPENED HERE
Uhh I can explain
There is too much. Let me sum up.
More goals in this game than in all our other home games combined lol
And our goal difference on the season is all the way up to… zero. ¯\\\_(ツ)_/¯
So does the season start now?
Works for me
What can I say, I like watching the ball go into the goal. This was very entertaining!
This was fun. I enjoyed it. We should do it again sometime.
Could you imagine doing this to Seattle?
I did not. :(
If it helps peter get fired I'm all for it. Gg timbers
Really? That's like firing Phil Jackson because Michael Jordan got hurt.
Who is Jordan here for you and please show me when that guy got a trophy
What the fuck is your coach doing? Actively sabotaging the team?
I saw [a tweet joking that he's starting Shelton to intentionally tank the team to prove a point.](https://twitter.com/downthebyline/status/1525696459877896193?t=_T_-JLXF79SPl0l9V6E69g&s=19)
He’s stubborn and thinks it’s 2013. Playing 35 year olds far too many minutes. He’s also our GM so he only signs his guys. Our academy is shit. It’s not looking good.
Even after the Dallas game, I decided to skip watching tonight. Decision definitely justified.
What an embarrassment.
Seba's English has really come a long way pretty quickly.
Was just thinking the same thing!
The clean Th on "think", the use of "of course" and "deserve" in the flow of easy speech. You can really tell he's worked very hard at it
YOU CAN FALSELY CALL IT A BASEBALL FIELD AFTER THIS CUZ THAT WAS A BASEBALL SCORE - 7 -2 MFS
Back to civic stadium’s roots
Football? A TD, PAT, and Safety? I mean, I guess...
Fair enough, I was thinking of the beavers, but that too.
The Oregon State Beavers football team? They played there too a few times between 1926 and 1933.
I had meant the Portland Beavers baseball team, I forgot about OSU. They played there different times through the stadiums history most recently being in the 80’s
No love for the Portland Rockies?
Or the Mavricks?
I knew what you were saying. Made a joke about the missing qualifier of city/school. There were different iterations of the Portland Beavers. Pacific Coast League, Triple A, Double A Single A, and Independent for many years between 1956 and 2010 in that stadium. The number of years without a baseball team since 1926 there than with one is about to be a minority. (I counted 51 years with baseball there, versus 45 without)
Beavers actually playing in Providence a game in 2022 lol
I meant the Portland Beavers baseball team, but I don’t know how I didn’t know about the OSU game
Yeah they're playing Montana State there in September 2022. Should be a good game
GG SKC, really hope both our teams figure their shit out soon. So strange to see these two clubs buried in the standings.
What a fun night this was for Timbers fans. Hopefully it goes a long way to boosting confidence and helping the team find form.
That was very entertaining
“That’s a lot of wood.”
That’s what she said, Jake, that’s what she said.
What a fucking match LMFAO wow was that a goddamn blast! GG
Ok, Nathan has a great smile.
Him and Rasmussen... Timbers should make a dreamy calendar.
Lost in the madness but Rasmussen was great tonight.
He was fine. Let's not throw great around. His passing wasn't good on any ball that had air under it. He was asleep on a goal.
Wasn't that second goal him falling asleep?
Agree 100 percent. Young kid that needs to learn to not switch off. But on balance he was very good.
Agreed. I like him and am happy to see him getting minutes
Yeah. I thought he was poor defensively and okay going forward.
Poor defensively? In the run of play he kept Russell shut down all night. One cross did him dirty and even that felt like a rookie, "if he's offside I don't have to play it" mistake where Russell was in fact not offside
Also like, the whole team was still kinda celebrating
Getting burned by Russell on the end line is practically a rite of passage
Yes he was!
This should be a fun post-game presser from Peter...
Here’s the fucked part.
SKC 58.3% possession and 11 shots
PTFC 41.7% possession and 11 shots
PTFC 8 shots on target, 7 found the net
that's what happens when you're up by a few goals and you can create really high quality chances on the counter
Good lord, that might be the most clinical performance I've ever seen
We scored as many goals in this game as the previous 10 (including Open Cup)
Well, GG Portland.
I’m tired and sad. I’m at a loss for how to describe how bad this team is. Fire Vermes
Alright Pete, who ya gonna throw under the bus tonight?
He can always borrow a page from Bob Bradley and blame the turf.
It’s the refs fault.
But in reality. Start Tzinos and Vujnovic and get rid of Shelton and Espinoza
Shelton, sure. Espinoza got subbed at half so I'm not sure what blame he holds for this fiasco.
The ref sucked but GG's SKC.
Very Portland-esque to score 7 goals in a game and still no hat trick
50 braces, 0 hat tricks
I've said this before, but that's actually a good thing.
I'd rather have 5 people score goals than 1 guy score 7.
I'd love to see a hat trick, but most players scoring is wonderful
BECAUSE GIO SUBBED THEM OUT LIKE THE COCK THAT HE IS.
Better to get the subs solid time than try to run it up with Seba, though I wouldn’t have minded if Fogaça stayed in
On one hand that's true, but it was also the perfect low-stakes opportunity to get some minutes for Tega Ikoba.
GG Portland. SKC, not so much
It's fucking 7-2??? HOLY SHIT.
SKC beat Montreal 7-1 in 2019 at home early, then missed the playoffs, not sure what my point is, fuck.
Your point is 2022 SKC is as bad as 2019 Montreal.
Pretty sure we’re worse.
Mercy Rule should have been used at half time. I'm embarrassed to be a Sporting Kansas City fan right now. Disgraceful
It was 1-0 at half
The first half was only 1-0. Shit hit the fan in the 2nd half.
I've seen enough SKC games this year to know that once we concede a goal, it's over.
It was 1-0 at half…
With this team, that's all it needed to be.
Y’all will find your way back, I imagine seeing SKC mid to top of the field by the end of the year.
I wish I had your confidence. I think this is the beginning of a long and painful rebuild.
Timber Joey ran out of gas.
Isn't it one for the team and one for the player?
One slice per goal and then usually a slice for a clean sheet.
Oh weird, I'm not sure why I'm remembering it wrong. Maybe it was an Outdoor School thing...Lol
If SKC was playing literally any team other than Portland I’d be very happy right now
Sorry to see you unhappy 😂
Chainsaw guy is going to need a fresh log at this rate
Usually do go through more than one log a season.
I think the C in SKC stands for Cincinnati, which is why they are so bad this season. And because there can be only one bad Cincinnati in the league per season, the other Cincinnati is doing great.
And somehow (4 fewer games played) Seattle is still below us.
If we don't win at least 1 of our next 2, that's when I'll start to worry. As long as we pick our form up pronto, we still have a reasonable shot at starting the playoffs at home. It'll be interesting to see the team try to succeed without JP, though, I'm far more worried about that than our lack of points. He has been our most important player since he set foot in Seattle.
I’m sure Seattle will, but weird shit kept happening to SKC after an even shorter CCL run in 19, injuries and fixture congestion were brutal and they never caught up.
Yeah I'm not ruling out that possibility, but we're in good enough shape at this point that I don't think we'll end up quite that bad.
I just don't think it is coincidence that you guys stole their form from previous seasons, there are larger forces at work.
Wouldn’t be surprised if we also lose 4/5-0 to Colorado Wednesday
At this point, it's a definite possibility.
Okay, if I ever had imagined scoring 7 in one game, I certainly would not have imagined putting 7 past Tim fuckin’ Melia
Well this is a nice comment and gave me some solice. Gg. Maybe in a few years we can be competitive again...
To be fair though to tim, none of the 7 goals have been his fault really. Maybe the 6th one he maybe could’ve saved but it was a hard shot
Nah he got hung out to dry. Not on him at all
That’s the only way it could ever have happened
Timber Joey really earning his paycheck tonight.
Melia on suicide watch
more like homicide
none that i saw were on him, i'm sure he's mad as hell at his back line
I CANT BELIEVE IT SOMEONE FROM OUR SUBREDDIT PUT A CURSE ON KANSAS CITY AND THEN WE SCORED 7 GOALS AGAINST THEM ????
It took me way too long to figure out what the hell that post was.
When I clicked on it I half expected it to be some weird tweet SKC had put out to try to troll us.
Magic is real!
lol, i went to the bathroom and grabbed a beer and missed two more
You store your beer in the bathroom?
That's the best spot to hide your cheese from the wife!
yeah, why, where do you keep yours?
Lmao I'm so sorry skc fans. You were right. I was wrong. You are smart. I am dumb. You are good looking. I am not attractive.
Thank god someone said it
Ok. As long as you're willing to admit it.
Ouff. Was here, watching this.
Damn, Portland now has scored more goals in a game than we have at Providence Park :'(
It's a challenge I tell ya
Only if you promise to visit
We've only scored 10 on the season I think.
THIS IS A JOKE. MY FRIEND JUST KEEPS LIVE BETTING GOALS AND WON ALMOST A GRAND. IT JUST WONT STOP WTF
Almost took the under 4.5 goals on my parley
I took clean sheet for the timbers, lol. thats definitely worse though
MLS After Dark >>>>>>>>>> Pac 12 After Dark.
Great game for us , but what the fuck is wrong with VanRankin? He’s such a good defender but we can’t afford to put him on the pitch. Gio would be out of his mind to put him out again.
Unfortunately, it was clear from the whole game apart from those 2 yellows that he is, play by play, much better than Bonilla. But then again that's not worth it if he won't stop committing the same ridiculous errors
It’s so insane. He’s our best right back. Just don’t get reds. It’s crazy.
I appreciate that he doesn't switch off on runs to the back post or set pieces, like basically every other right back we've ever had has done
Other than that... not great
Trying to make up for so many games with no goals.
You get a goal and you get a goal! Everyone gets a goal!!!
Just throwing this out there as a meme monday idea since I’ll probably forget…
But can someone make a meme out of those satellite photos of the DR-Haiti border and deforestation and make a joke at our expense?
> DR-Haiti border
[I gotchu, fam.](https://imgur.com/FQIYj6t) You get to post it since it's your brain-child. :)
You’re a gentleman and a scholar.
7 GOALS 7 GOALS THATS OUR MLS RECORD!!
Wow has 7 ever got past Melia? I think that’s a first for sure
7 more nails in Peter Vermeses coffin.
That coffin is far from being buried:/
Can we move up our game against skc?
LET IT RAIN LET IT POUR
LET THE PORTLAND TIMBERS SCORE
Na na na na na na na na na
Hahah what a crazy game, top to bottom
This might get Vermes fired.
We could lose the rest of the games and he wouldn’t get fired.
It won't. We'll have not win between now and our next Open Cup match - which we'll also have to lose - before it's even discussed.
Nope, he has the full backing of the Cauldron and Front Office. Cauldron honchos won't let you say anything negative about him.
Not as long has he has his "two DPs are injured" excuse
Well, fuck me. Seven goals is impressive and I don’t care who you are.
What’s on the box?
Just lay him *down*, Santi
Fuck me, that was beautiful
7!!! HOW IS THIS HAPPENING
WE DID ITTT!!!!!
Club record, let's go!
Holy fuck! 7 goals!! Glad to see Moreno finally get one.
A new club record ⚡️💫👑
This shit is just too funny lmao
It's sad because it was inevitable. Will anything change?
GG Portland. I hope to one day visit Providence Park because it looks and sounds fantastic.
Get out of the way ref
Yikes, guys. We fuckin STINK
Loria is one of those players who arrived in Portland as a highly touted youngster and it just hasn't really worked out.
Not saying he's been a Conechney level failure, far from it, but he hasn't exactly lit the world on fire. Happy for him to get the goal.
He's just not getting minutes, and I think it's a crime. Him and Moreno bossed RSL in the WCF, and I think Loria should've started MLS cup with Blanco a late sub
Loria is so off and on though, and I'm not sure that changes with consistent minutes.
Two more and we can break out the "8-2 be them" jokes
