Watching other Strikers with a Heavy Heart

It pains me to write this but I watch with envy as I watch other teams in the Western Conference who have such solid finishers in the final third. Seattle today gets great play in the final third out of Dempsey and Martins. RSL in the first 8 minutes gets great play in the final third out of Plata, Saborio and Grabavoy.

I just imagine our team with a guy or two who can finish (WJ, Nagbe and Valeri all fit that bill at times last year) like I have seen our rivals finish today. Not trying to be a downer her before our game tmrw, just realizing how deficient our team is in this aspect of the game right now. I hope that changes and within a few weeks we can say that Valeri, Nagbe and Urruti are showing quality in the final third too.

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
