It was not a particularly good night for the Portland Timbers. Everything was going in their favor aside from the fact that it was an away game. Aside from missing Diego Chara, the Timbers had a solid starting eleven, including Rodney Wallace who returned from CONCACAF Gold Cup duties. On the flip side, San Jose was missing three key players in Chris Wondolowski, Alan Gordon and newly acquired central defender Clarence Goodson. With all that, the Timbers just weren't ever able to break down an overtly physical San Jose side.
That is, of course, to say nothing for the fact that the Timbers squandered a great opportunity to rise above some key Western Conference opponents. Tough break.
Now is your chance to vote on how well you think each player performed. Did anybody stand out to you? Did anybody let you down?
As a reminder, if you want to score a player as "average" meaning he did exactly what was expected, no more or less, then you'll want to leave it as a 5. Anything higher or lower means that you believe he performed better or worse than expected.
