Tactics Analyst: Errors, rust lead to boring tie

The Portland Timbers stole a point late from Seattle Sounders FC, tying 1-1 on Saturday. It was a fair result given the play, which Sounders FC saw the better of early, and Portland did the same later on.

Know Your History 2013 with Graphic

For many of us it is easy to forget the eras prior to MLS. But the soccer history we have here in Cascadia is part of why this Cascadia Cup thing is special and will remain special. It is why the Supporters Groups are fighting to maintain the trademark.

It is also full of success for the Seattle Sounders. How much success depends on how you count the numbers. For the front office of Seattle they include even contests that do not include a league that existed between the NASL and the A-League and provide the following records of the contest;

All-Time Series Record

Year League Record

1975-82 NASL Sounders 13 wins; Timbers 8 wins

1985-90 WSL FC Seattle 5 wins; FC Portland/Timbers 6 wins; 2 draws

2001-08 USL-1 Sounders 20 wins; Timbers 13 wins; 5 draws

2009-10 U.S. Open Cup Sounders FC 1 win; Timbers 0 wins; 1 draw

2011-12 MLS Sounders FC 2 wins; Timbers 1 win; 2 draws

Totals: 79 matches played; Seattle 41 wins; Portland 28 wins; 10 draws

Now there is evidence that there was another FC Seattle win just prior to the WSL era when the two teams played, but did not play in a recognized league.

There are of course other ways to count the history, and Likkit provides a fact sheet for the NASL-ALeague/USL-MLS eras of the three cities' soccer clubs.



Scouting Report: Putting One Finger on the Cup

The season is young yet, but the signs are that Portland will be a more dangerous team than they were last year. Are they dangerous enough to threaten the Seattle Sounders in their own den?

Andy Rose early play prepares him to limit PDX

Andy Rose indicates that the performance against Tigres should help prepare the Sounders to shut down Portland and put "on a show in front of our fans."


Rivalry beyond soccer, but mainly soccer

This rivalry between Portland and Seattle stretches to many things - Sounders/Timbers, Sonics/Blazers, Ducks/Huskies (Cougs/Beavs a bit too) beer, music, mass transit, whatever. But in American soccer it is the predominant rivalry, not just a rivalry.
