Not a very pretty match by any stretch and it means the Caps absolutely have to keep a clean sheet at home. Hopefully Pedro is ready to start with another week's rest.

Very sloppy defending by the Caps near the end.  Thank god for Ousted. 

I was hoping Vancouver wouldn't get a scoreless draw, since now they have to win outright at home.

Portland had the benefit of a couple of posts last week and today it was the Caps' turn...

They're going to have to be a lot better in the return leg. The possession numbers were around 60-40 for the Timbers. No wonder Robbo looked so happy with the scoreless draw.

I don't know why all the doom and gloom? A scoreless draw on the away leg of a first match in Europe is considered golden.

Cuz of the away goal rule. A goal for Portland at BC Place and the Caps are pretty doomed now, since we have no away goals and it would mean Portland has 1. If Portland scores next Sunday, we have to score at least 2 goals to win the series.

I'm aware of the away goal rule, living in Europe I find most Europeans are generally happy if their club returns with a 0-0 result, there is more pressure on the away team to score.

Bought two tickets row 1 on stubhub for 55$ USD each a two nights ago

There were four available, probably could have re-sold at double the price the extra two but I was lazy.

Excited to go, go caps! :D

Cousin and his friend are STH. Friend is out of town. Guess who's in luck :)

 

...and I think that's the going price. STH they sold quite a few of the tickets and made $300+ profits each. Their tickets cost them $27, sell them for $40+. $55 is right around the ballpark, pretty good grab on the secondary market.

...Seattle-Dallas game...just superb. Dempsey FK in the dying minutes was magical. Family friends in Seattle are STH...said the atmosphere was bonkers. On TV it seemed wild as is and it is always but after that goal, hit another level he said lol.

I guess you could look at it that way. It'd also be pressure for the Whitecaps to not allow a goal though.

Home crowd support vs the tiebreaker. 

I dunno..... I would prefer something more tangible.

to add to this, the caps have never kept a clean sheet against Portland at home.

Also nice to see Ousted, Waston and Robbo all be finalists for awards.
