Timbers Tid Bits: Transfer Window Edition

Tomorrow, the international transfer window for MLS officially opens up. We've already been seeing teams from around the league add international players with the New York Red Bulls adding a DP goalkeeper, Toronto adding two European DPs and Vancouver adding a young DP... it's been quite the hustle and bustle for MLS teams. Nothing yet from the Timbers though. I expect we'll see at least one defensive signing soon after the window open though. That area needs to be patched, quickly.

Enjoy the morning (almost afternoon!) news.
