Bernie Fagan

After this teaser from Jonathan Nicholas in today's Oregonian I recieved this from Bernie Fagan:

"Coaching the Timbers would be a fantastic opportunity! Formal interviews have not taken place yet, but I have submitted my resume as requested and look forward to meeting with the organization to discuss the coaching position."

So there you go.

Sharia on the Field

6. Do not play in two halves. Rather play in one half or three halves in order to completely differentiate yourselves from the heretics, the polytheists, the corrupted and the disobedient.

I'm sure I've seen some of these guys playing in Wilshire Park on Friday afternoons.

Trib on Timbers

The Trib this morning gives the impression that the major players in deciding the future GM/Coach for the Timbers will be John Cunningham + "...our consultants in the Sacramento area" and the teams owners "Branch (Rickey III) with the Pacific Coast League".

The one man who has been touted as a soccer fan,
Abe Alizadeh, "...probably won't be as involved in the process."

Cunningham will also be the Timbers representative at the USL AGM ("
and maybe others")...no specific mention of Jim Taylor being any part of this.

Timbers face Wholesale Changes

The President of the Portland Timbers, John Cunningham, has announced that General Manager Jim Taylor has resigned his position with the club and head coach Bobby Howe has been "relieved of his duties".

The press release also states that Jim will "...continue to be involved with the organization in an advisory capacity". One of his roles will presumably be to smooth the transition through the USL AGM which takes place over the weekend of Oct 28-31.

Cunningham was introduced by the PCL back in March as "... President and general manager of the Beavers, (who) will "oversee" the Timbers by working with General Manager Jim Taylor, and will be the top manager of PGE Park."

Both Taylor and Howe were part of the team that brought professional soccer back to Portland in 2001 and presided over 5 seasons in which the Timbers failed to reach the playoffs only once, but also only progressed past the first round of playoffs only once (in 2001).

Counted among the successes over the past 5 years must be the development of some young players who have passed through PGE Park; the environment that has seen the growth of one of the top supporters groups in US sports; and some individual events such as Sunderland's visit earlier this year.

Disappointments include the mismatch between success on the field and the results that the supporters deserve and the overall lack of growth in attendance (except 107).

Both Jim Taylor and Bobby Howe have had to run the club with a background of financial and ownership uncertainty ever since the original owners group PFE crumbled with large debts. The fact that they have managed to bring 5 years of passion and excitement (give or take a bit!) speaks volumes about their commitment to the Timbers players, supporters and Portland.

I'm sure there will be much more news and (hopefully a post-Timbers interview or 2) upcoming in the next few months, but on personal note I would like to thank both Bobby and Jim and everyone else in the Timbers organization who have always been available for comments, interviews and questions in a way that speaks volumes about their connection with the Timbers fans.

Thank you and good luck.

MISL to Portland?

Turns out there is a new group planning to bring MISL (indoor) soccer (back) to Portland.

More details on this soon.

...and what of the One Wolf MLS bid? Seems that the touted Cuna del Futbol tournament which was to have been played in July was cancelled.
