MLS: Portland Timbers at Chicago Fire Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

One’s in Tucson. The other is in Portland. But for this year’s fourth episode of Soccer Made in Portland, the show will go on.

In terms of the Timbers, that means updates from The Oregonian’s Jamie Goldberg and’s Richard Farley talking Costa Rica, Arizona, as well as the team’s two remaining transfer pursuits. Also, an update on the status of Aljaz Ivačič and a discussion on how Jamie and Richard should (and should not) be framing transfer updates.

For the Thorns, that means consideration of Caitlin Foord’s return to goal-scoring form, pondering the possible arrival of a new defensive midfielder, and wondering why, oh why, the U.S. women’s national team can’t keep Lindsey Horan healthy.
