Kind of a slow news day for the Timbers, well at least yesterday was. Seems like the only thing anybody is talking about with regards to the team is Darlington Nagbe's goal and, well, there's only so many articles you can read about a single goal, as fantastic as it was regardless.
Other news today focuses around Sporting KC's rise to prominence and how they only have a few road games left and some player speculation outside of the Timbers.
Enjoy the morning news!
