Certainly less exciting than 8c8's youtube promise, but someone emailed me this account of the Timbers game from Portland's paper The Oregonian. Portland 2, Burnley FC 2: Timbers hold their own against English Premier League team by Nick Daschel, Special to The Oregonian Saturday July 25, 2009, 10:31 PM The Portland Timbers don't fall easily in a game these days. Even to a club from the world's biggest, baddest soccer league? Portland held its own against Burnley FC of the English Premier League, fighting the Clarets to a 2-2 draw in regulation before losing on penalty kicks Saturday night before 9,078 at PGE Park. Burnley outscored the Timbers 4-2 during the penalty-kick session. Portland, riding a 17-match unbeaten streak in United Soccer Leagues First Division play, hosted the exhibition against Burnley before hitting the stretch drive of its league play. "I'm not looking at this as a loss," Portland midfielder Tony McManus said. "Penalty kicks are something for the fans to enjoy. I'm 100 percent happy to take a tie against an English Premier team." This is the start of a historic year for Burnley. The Clarets will play in the English Premier League this season after they were recently promoted to the world's highest domestic soccer league for the first time in 33 years. Burnley is in the midst of its preseason, spending a week in the United States to play two exhibition games, one against the Timbers. Burnley and Portland dueled to a 1-1 halftime tie, though the Timbers had the upper hand during most of the first half. The score was in Portland's favor most of the first half, too, after a 15-yard bullet by forward George Josten during the 13th minute gave the Timbers a 1-0 lead. Burnley had just one shot through 37 minutes, but made its next shot count. Robbie Blake fed a ball to the head of defender Steven Caldwell, who knocked it past Timbers' goalie Steve Cronin at the 40-minute mark to tie the game. Burnley got a second wind early in the second half after the Clarets made seven substitutions. Steven Thompson, in the game less than a minute, took a pass from Richard Eckersley and scored on a 10-yard shot at the 67th minute to give Burnley a 2-1 lead. Portland stormed back 14 minutes later when midfielder Rodrigo Lopez blasted a 25-yard direct kick into the top right corner of the goal to tie the game 2-2. Portland (9-1-8) came into its match against Burnley off a scoreless tie against Puerto Rico on Thursday in a battle of USL First Division first-place teams. "I would say we played very well tonight," McManus said. "If we had played this well the other night, it would have been a win against Puerto Rico." Notes: This was the third and final exhibition for the Timbers this season. Previously, Portland beat Club America's reserves (Mexico) 4-1, and Bayern Munich II 2-0. ... Portland is 8-3-1 in international matches since 2001. ... Saturday's match was the second time the Timbers played a club from the English Premier League. In 2005, Portland and Sunderland AFC played to a scoreless tie. Burnley played in the uniforms it plans to wear at home this season, which include light blue and maroon striped socks. ... The Timbers get back to USL action Saturday at Minnesota. Portland (9-1-8) has a win and a draw against the Thunder this season. ... The Timbers have 12 games left to play in the regular season, seven at PGE Park. Portland's next home game is Aug. 6 against Vancouver.

Wow that is certainly some e-mail CP :-) not sure i can fathom what the numbers represent? games played? then i am lost.
8clarets8
8c8 - I suspect that, as in American football, 9-1-8 means W9 L1 D8. Yep, it would have to be that to fit with the 17-game unbeaten run. What I don't know is, when they say the Timbers are 8-3-1 in international matches, whether the Clarets are included in the '3' or the '1'!!!
