Another disappointing loss yesterday along with a discernible lack of goals. I don't blame Portland Timbers fans for being frustrated. I'm frustrated as much as everybody else. The worst part about the recent losses to Cal FC and the LA Galaxy, however, isn't so much that they're losing, although that definitely doesn't help, but that they're losing without scoring anything. It's giving us nothing to cheer about through an entire game and that's quite demoralizing.

But enough sulking! I know it might seem like this drought has gone on for a long time, but the truth is that the Timbers have been able to score before and they'll find that knack once again. It's gonna come... I promise you.

It's for that reason that I've gone and dug up a particularly great highlight video from YouTube. While all the goals shown are from last season, it certainly puts the recent woes into perspective.

Check it out after the jump.

Which goal from Timbers' past is your favorite? Kenny Cooper's first ever Timbers MLS goal? Jorge Perlaza's first ever goal at Jeld-Wen Field? Darlington Nagbe's 2011 Goal of the Year? Something else entirely?

Sound off in the comments below and let's talk about GOALS.
