Timbers Tid Bits: Off Season Edition

First week of the off season... well for Timbers fans anyway. Many of you might be dreading the weeks that come as they're considerably less packed with soccer and, as a result less news from yours truly. But fear not! We here at Stumptown Footy HQ have plenty of stuff to cover over the off season. Seriously, it'll probably be more packed with news and editorials than the regular season...

Starting this week we'll kick off our play-off coverage. I know the Timbers aren't involved, but it's still important for MLS fans in general to know what's happening. I'll also be putting together a helpful article to determine which, if any, of the current play-off teams you should be rooting for. You know, to make it more fun!

So if you think SF will become less content heavy in the coming weeks you can think again. We're preparing for some great coverage in the weeks ahead.

Enjoy your afternoon news!
