2022 MLS Kit grading thread below ⬇️
Atlanta United FC: A

The color, the pattern, the message. All absolutely incredible!

The fact that this jersey is 100% sustainable fabric and the team is helping the city plant trees? So so amazing. Well done 👏 #UniteAndConquer
Austin FC: B+

The color is phenomenal, especially for an away kit. However, it’s pretty plain beside the unique color. Also wish it was more green to fit their verde color scheme. #AustinFC

OK, I’m gonna take a stab at a timeline of events & statements in the ongoing avalanche of abuse scandals within PTFC. Let me know if I miss anything important.

(Keeping this strictly to abuse for my own sanity) (1/?)

MARCH, 2014: Thorns midfielder Mana Shim is interviewed for a profile in the Oregonian. She talks openly about her life, including her homosexual relationship. (2/?)

MARCH, 2014 (days later): Shim is called to a meeting w/ Gavin Wilkinson, in which he suggests she needs to keep quiet about her sexuality in public. In doing so, he weaponizes another player’s approach to her own sexuality against Shim. (3/?)

was asked if I could translate some of what Andy Polo's wife had said on the Peruvian talk show she was on. Woke up out of nowhere, so I will leave a thread below of what she said on the Magally TV show about what allegedly happened with the Timbers winger, now suspended by #MLS
Genesis Alarcon said the following @MagalyTvLaFirme:
"When I called 911, he called someone from the team, and that person from the team did arrive but because I didn't speak English, I was upstairs while that person from the team, the policeman and Andy were talking downstairs."
🗣The policeman would come up, speaking with an interpreter on the phone, and that's how he talked to me. Later, the head of the team’s security, of Portland Timbers, got there and he asked what I wanted to do, whether I wanted him [Polo] to leave the home or If I wanted to go.

Let’s talk about Gavin Wilkinson and @MerrittPaulson, shall we? (1/?) #rctid #baonpdx
This? This here? I have absolutely NO trouble believing this is exactly how it went down.
You know how I know that’s the truth? Because the aggressive, defensive, and categorical denial they give is TEXTBOOK abuser shit.

I'm seeing a lot of questions in @GameFlowxPG about the #RCTID and #RSL game, so I'll wade into the deep end here.

The @AnalysisEvolved xG model has this game 1.8 to 2.47 for RSL.

@FotMob has it 2.07 to 1.69 in favor of Portland.

The #WGCF model below is barely Portland.

1/ Image
Think of xG models like judges in a boxing match. One may score a shot one way and another a different way due to their own perspectives (both strengths and blind spots).

Usually they agree on the final winner, but often it's a split or majority decision.

2/
Although one judge may see a shot differently, in aggregate, good xG models will usually agree about a team over a season, and typically even over 5 to 10 games.

Models typically improve over time, if there is acknowledgment about their blind spots and how to improve them.

#SCCL2021 #RCTID Gio, “sabíamos que iba a ser difícil, fue una gran competencia, fueron mejores en 1er tiempo y fuimos mejores en el 2do. En general buena competencia y el gol al final es Justo a nuestro esfuerzo”
#SCCL2021 #RCTID Gio, “no hay que celebrar sino reconocer lo bien que lo hicimos en el 2do tiempo ante un gran rival”
#SCCL2021 #RCTID Gio, “cuando vi que era penal, #VAR estaba revisando y era claro que era penal. Merecíamos algo por el tipo de partido que hicimos. Mora tuvo tranquilidad y el gol será importante en México. Orgulloso de la actuacion de Los jugadores”

🇺🇲 El deporte en #EEUU está atravesando horas convulsionadas después de otro caso de violencia racial. Los jugadores de Inter Miami y Atlanta United de la #MLS se acaban de unir a un paro histórico contra el racismo por parte de los y las jugadores/as de la NBA y la WNBA. Image
Acá el comunicado de la @MLS con un mensaje en repudio al asesinato #JacobBlake, otro caso de racismo y violencia policial.

#BlackLivesMatter Image
Con el mensaje de #BlackLivesMatter en las remeras, ambos equipos y árbitros posaron juntos como forma de protesta, antes de abandonar el estadio.

After enduring a lot of sugar induced hangovers, expensive bar tabs and Excel nightmares, I have now officially tried enough spiked seltzer’s to pair them with every MLS team. Obviously this is very important information and the thread will begin once the EmergeC kicks in...
Before beginning, I would like to note that these are simply my opinions and are not endorsements for any of these brands whatsoever. Anyone who find these pairings inaccurate or wants to complain can email me here: getovrurselfnerd@babywahwah.cry
Atlanta United- Oskar Blues Wild Basin Cucumber Peach: undeniable flavor and super refreshing by all measures. Easily one of the best out there. #UniteAndConquer

#RCTID #MLS Brian Fernández on Argentinian radio ... “I was running out of strength. I needed this if I don’t want to end badly. I want to stay here, I want to stay here for a lot of time” @RobAbramowitz @tkolker @arieljudas @GlennCrooks
#RCTID #MLS Brian Fernández “ I came with the idea of scoring 18 goals and I had to stop in 15. I know that I play and if I want to score twice I will do it” @RobAbramowitz @GlennCrooks @tkolker @arieljudas
#RCTID #MLS Brian Fernández: “I’m being help and that is what I want. I don’t want to fall all the way to the bottom. I know for sure that I won’t okay next game BUT if the team wins, maybe I’m ready for the following one” @GlennCrooks @tkolker @arieljudas @RobAbramowitz

#TimbersFC 3-1 #Quakes74: The Best of All Possible Worlds, Emphasis on Possible

LINK: bit.ly/31TVtDY

Portland “lunged” into the playoffs – i.e., they grasped for the last vine as they fell. Eh, at least they did it with a little style. My notes. #PORvSJ #RCTID (1/4)
My big take-away:

“Dairon ‘Mr. October’ Asprilla, scored the goal that broke San Jose, and that, along with Mabiala’s night/goal and Blanco’s night/goal, is literally what the Portland Timbers need to get anywhere near a memorable season in 2019.” (2/4)
“They’re sound defensively, but I saw both players helping the attack today – Chara by stretching it vertically on the counter...Paredes by providing a late option here and a run to pull defenders there…they both put in outstanding, even defining games today” (3/4)

Another beautiful night for soccer in Portland.
Iron Front flags a plenty.

We're getting underway with tonight's @107ist meet and greet with coach Gio Savarese! Props to @stephanzy106 for kicking it off #RCTID
Gio started off by thanking TA for the show of support at the last match following the passing of his father. He said that meant a lot to him and to relatives who saw it on the broadcast. #RCTID
He also appreciated the opportunity to explore the depth of the roster as the schedule got compacted, giving youth an opportunity to play and to give the coaching staff the good problem of determining who to start as each player makes his case at every game #RCTID

Curious about just how exactly Brian Fernandez fits into Portland’s tactics? Well, welcome to my super long, overly analytical rant, breaking down his impact and fit within the team. Thread below:

#RCTID
It’s important to re-emphasize how astounding of a signing this is. Fernandez’ potential is up there with the biggest youth signings in the league over the past few years, including Ezequiel Barco, Diego Rossi, and yes, Miguel Almiron. #RCTID
Seem like a stretch? Let’s compare:
In 40 games for Lanus in Primera Division, Almiron tallied 4g/4a
In 32 games for Necaxa in Liga MX, Fernandez tallied 18g/5a

The guy has talent, more so than any Timbers signing before it. #RCTID

Okay, here goes. (1) World class tifo. @107IST member dollars pay for 100% of the costs of those amazing displays you see by both @timbersarmy and @PDXRivetersSG #RCTID #BAONPDX
(2) The fanladen, which serves as a physical meeting space for so much of the planning we do as an organization. in 2011 we were still meeting in the side rooms of bars on Sunday afternoons. #RCTID #BAONPDX
(3) Game day ticket exchange for @timbersarmy, in an attempt to keep the beautiful game affordable. @107IST provides the space, personnel, & infrastructure to make it happen every game day. #RCTID
