The Portland Timbers play their first official game of the 2014 season against the Philadelphia Union at the recently renamed Providence Park this Saturday.

The team had a great season last year that took them all the way to the playoffs, where they lost to Real Salt Lake (RSL). Last year was the team’s first under coach Caleb Porter. After the loss to RSL, Porter said, “When we’re back, and we will be back, we’ll do better.” Fans are hoping he can make good on that claim, especially with the addition of a few new players.

Are you a Timbers fan? What are you expecting from the 2014 season?
