Regular season got you down? Tired of seeing yet another three points slip away from a team that continues to disappoint? I'm right there with you. Which is why I'm actually kind of excited about tonight's exhibition match. Were the Portland Timbers setting the league on fire, I would see it as a nuisance. But since they're obviously not trying to make the play offs, it should serve as a worthy distraction for an otherwise incredibly frustrating season.

Anyway, tonight, the Timbers take on English Premier Side Aston Villa. They're one of the better known EPL sides, though they're not one of the "big 5." I would liken them to Everton or Fulham status... middle of the road, this past season notwithstanding.

So, with that said, here are the details for the upcoming match. We'll update the line ups just as soon as we get them.
