Getting daily changes for the Timbers:

Palmer - contract not renewed
Purdy - contract not renewed

Kimura - goes to New York
Brunner - goes to Houston

Acquire Michael Harrington from Sporting KC
Acquire Will Johnson from Real Salt Lake

I wish they would get our keeper back and find us a mobile striker with ball handling skills.

- NYRB put a big red bow on Kenny Cooper and is looking for offers, which is absolutely ridiculous. "Hey, thanks for scoring 18 goals. Now don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out."

But I doubt Portland will want him back seeing as he was dead weight for them.

We seem to be the striker black hole, they are great before they get here and do good after they leave.

And 2 England teams crash out of CL group stage again.
The past two Champions League campaigns are really going to hurt the EPL uefa coefficient. I wouldn't be suprised to see them limited to 3 teams in the coming years.

edit....and to add to this. My Arsenal team, who is having an awful season, decided not to field a strong team and subsequently loose their last game. They didn't care, because they had already qualified in 2nd. Last time they sandbagged like that to finish 2nd, they got Barcelona in the first round of knockouts and promptly got their bell rung.

If I'm understanding the coefficient process properly, they are not in any real risk of losing a team any time soon. They may well get passed by Germany for the number 2 spot, but the top three teams all get 4 CL spots and 3 EL spots. England is 17 points ahead of #4, italy, with a 5 year coefficient of 77 vs Italy's 60.

They were tied for second in coefficient based on 2011-2012 season, and are currently third for the 2012-2013 season. So yeah, these past couple years haven't helped them solidify their position, but their relative performance in the past couple years has still been solid enough to maintain 4 CL spots.

As a fellow Gooner I hear ya. Unfortunately with our abysmal back 4 at some point in the tournament we're going to get stomped. It's just a matter of sooner or later.

I feel for the sanity of my Gooner friends. That was no skeleton team they put out against Bradford.
