There is nothing cooler than this in my opinion. Seeing/hearing a large supporters group like the Timbers Army sing the national anthem on national TV was special to see not only for the club itself but for the league. It shows the league is continuing to grow at paces we couldn’t have imagined a few years ago.

It truly was a special night last night in Portland. The sold-out crowd at JELD-WEN Field put on a very nice show for the rest of the league. I think it is safe to say there will be plenty of debates today about whether or not the Timbers fans are better or on par with the other top groups in the league like the Seattle Sounders fans, the D.C. United fans and so on.

What did you make of the home opener for Portland?

  • I still don’t see what was so fantastic about the Timbers Army singing the National Anthem…. I was under the impression a lot of teams have their supporters sing it….or at least a handful of teams… They were impressive last night, no doubt… but the National Anthem thing? didn’t seem all that special in my opinion.

      If you don’t get it, I can’t explain it to you.

      Well done, Portland.

      The Timbers Army was integral to Portland getting an MLS franchise. We were honored to be asked and honored to sing the National Anthem in TA style. It was a fantastic, electric night and we’ll do it all again on Sunday. If you don’t get it – than that is clearly your problem.
      ROSE CITY ‘TIL I DIE!

  • As a fan of the EPL, I was very impressed with the Timber`s Army, they are the only American team I will even remotely give any Props too, they remind me of “Poppy fans”….I will be rooting for the Timber`s, I hope they do well and their fan base continues to grow and grow…….No Pity in the Rose City, I fucking Love it!

      Comparing us to Poppy fans is indeed Props… even if Kevin is feeling inadequate, must be a flounders fan.
