SBI has an interesting post up about some potential CB candidates for the Timbers at the moment. You can find that article here.
I only bring this up because this is the first time I've seen any specific names attached to a search that simple logic would tell you has been at least casually going on for a few weeks to a month.
Pa Modu Kah is a Gambian who has caps for the Norwegian National Team after his family moved to Norway when he was eight. He's played for AIK in the past and has spent the past few years plying his trade in the Middle East. It's looking like this potential deal is already on the rocks so it may or may not happen.
Our other contestant is Michael Thwaite (could we cover him with Gold?) who's currently playing for the Perth Glory in Australia's A-League. He's a big dude at 6' 3' and has some experience. My main concern here is that everything I know about the A-League suggests that the quality of play is a step down from MLS.
Either of these guys could be waltzing into camp soon (Trade Deadline is May 6th) and lining up in the back next to Michael Silvestre. I bring this up mostly because this is the first I've seen names attached to this issue and yet it's likely to get dealt with sooner rather than later. How about you? Think one of these guys is the answer to our CB problems? Or is there someone you'd rather see instead?
