Well, with a little time separating us from the season I thought I would take a little time to recount some of my favorite moments from the season, you know the ones that really stuck with me as a relatively new soccer fan. These are sequenced in order of my preference, and are subject to my personal memory at the time. Looking back, wathing tons of video, I would sequence them differently if i were picking best plays (nagbe's goal would top it off for certain, some of Perkins Goal work would outclass the Gleeson save), that is not what this is though!
10. I don't have video of it, and it is not a good memory, but one I will not forget anytime soon. Jeff Larentowicz taunting the Timbers Army after their goal to secure their victory at Jeld-Wen. That bum with the ball up his shirt, I am not readily going to forget that moment and I certainly hope the Army has something special in store for him on his next visit to Portland for sure.9. Cooper from Alhassan:
8. Amazing Nagbe Goal of the Year Winner, it was on the far end, but it was surprising when it went back in when it was clearly on the way out from our end, little did I realize at the time exactly how amazing it was (two views):
7. OK this is the only one that seeing it afterward mae me add it in. But still the feeling live was great, even if I thought this went off the post only in live action, Jake Gleeson save of the week:
6. Perlaza goal agaist fire. This was straight downfield from where I sat that night, one of the clearest other end goals I had seen all year:
5. Timbers Army invading Qwest Field, this is a clip of video I shot, it was awesome:
4. Jorge Perlaza Goal against the Galaxy:
3. Chabala goal against the Galaxy, we were awesome in this match, we really were:
1. Opening Night is hard to beat. My seats are in the TA section and that was a rocking night. The rain did nothing o dampen the spirits of the evening and that feeling is best embodied by the stadium singing the national anthem:
These are not all of the moments I remember obviously, but they are the top 10 as they came to me looking back on this great season. I can not wait until March 12!
