Smelling Like Roses

What makes the Timbers tick? Jonah is in Portland and has an expansive chat with Caleb Porter, who talks about everything from his signature attack, to Darlington Nagbe's sky-high potential, to why he hates the term Porterball: "I'm not a revolutionary," claims the former Akron guru, who adds he badly wants the Supporters' Shield. Back in San Francisco, the Matts talk the Timbers' showdown with the LA Galaxy, and wrap up the USMNT's 6-1 rout of Belize.
