I never thought Adam Moffat would get his very own link thread on this site. No way, no how. He just never played a big role in the Timbers line up, or history... until yesterday that is. I'm not going to rant or rave about Adam Moffat and whether he really is as good as that strike he made. That's all up for debate. I will say that it was a damn good strike and a damn good goal. Kudos to him for being able to put that one in from such an incredibly distance.
