The Portland Timbers were the surprise of Major League Soccer last season under first-year coach Caleb Porter. Playing what fans dubbed "Porterball," the team finished atop the Western Conference standings and advanced to the conference finals.
The Portland Timbers mirror the personality of first-year coach Caleb Porter. With two matches left and a playoff berth within grasp, the team is all business.
After missing his team's final soccer game last season because of cancer treatment, 8-year-old Atticus Lane-Dupre made sure his teammates were in on his wish to scrimmage against the Portland Timbers.
For all the talk about the strides soccer has made in the United States, results of late have been stark and disappointing.
"A lot of other teams have more pieces to manage, to figure out, they're still tinkering with their systems, still trying to figure out the philosophy they're going to play, all that stuff," Porter said. "We're clear on that, we're set on that.
