The Portland Timbers are an American professional soccer club based in Portland, Oregon. The Timbers compete in Major League Soccer as a member club of the league's Western Conference; the Timbers have played their home games at Providence Park since 2011, when the team began play as an expansion team in the league. The club was founded in 2009, when the city of Portland was awarded an expansion berth to Major League Soccer; the team is owned by Peregrine Sports under the majority ownership of Merritt Paulson, whose companies had acquired the then-USL Pro team in 2007 and established the Portland Thorns women's team in 2012. The club is a phoenix club, the fourth soccer franchise based in Portland to carry the legacy of the Timbers name, which originated with the original team, in the North American Soccer League in 1975. In 2013, the Timbers finished the regular season in first place in the Western Conference, clinching both their first-ever playoff appearance and a CONCACAF Champions League berth.
In 2015, the franchise won the Western Conference Finals in the playoffs, their first major trophy, the MLS Cup. In 2017, the club again finished the regular season in first place in the Western Conference. Soccer in Portland, Oregon can be traced to the soccer team that competed in the NASL as an expansion team until the club's seventh season in 1982; the club's major achievement was in their inaugural season during the league's playoffs, having won the league's division final, runners-up in Soccer Bowl'75 losing to the Tampa Bay Rowdies in the championship match. In 1985, F. C. Portland had established and was a charter club in the Western Soccer Alliance League and competed until folding in 1990. There would be no soccer club in the city until 2001, when the USL Timbers was founded and competed in Division 2 soccer in USL pro till the club ceased operations in 2010; the USL pro club finished with the best record in the league in both the 2004 and 2009 regular seasons. The announcement of the Timbers' entry into MLS was the culmination of a nearly two-year-long process for Merritt Paulson, dating back at least to May 2007, when Paulson led a group that bought the Portland Beavers and the USL Timbers.
The group included Meritt Paulson's father. The biggest issue for the city of Portland at that time was that due to league concerns about seating configuration, field surface and scheduling, obtaining an MLS club would require a new stadium. In October 2007, Paulson was told PGE Park could be upgraded for about $20 million, a new baseball stadium would cost about $30 million. By November 2008, Paulson told The New York Times he expected Portland taxpayers would spend $85 million to "build a new baseball stadium for his Beavers and renovate PGE Park—just remodeled in 2001 at a cost to taxpayers of $38.5 million—for soccer", that in exchange, he would spend $40 million for the franchise fee to bring a new Major League Soccer team to Portland. MLS was in support of the proposal, wanting to continue to expand the number of owners in the league. Though supporting the acquisition of an MLS franchise raised numerous issues for Mayor Sam Adams and the Portland City Council, the Timbers were announced as Major League Soccer's eighteenth team on March 20, 2009 by Commissioner Don Garber.
The announcement occurred during the first and second-round games of the 2009 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament that were held in Portland. The announcement noted. Former forward and Colorado Rapids assistant coach John Spencer was named the first head coach of the Timbers on August 10, 2010, it was announced that former head coach Gavin Wilkinson of the USL-1/USSF D-2 Timbers, was promoted as the general manager/technical director of the team. The Timbers signed five players before the MLS Expansion Draft on November 24, 2010. Three were part of the Timbers D-2 Pro League squad in 2010, one was signed from D-2 Pro League team Austin Aztex and one was acquired via trade with New York Red Bulls. On November 24, 2010, the Timbers, along with the other 2011 expansion team, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, participated in an MLS Expansion Draft, each selecting 10 players from existing teams. After the Expansion Draft, the Timbers announced the trade of their first pick, from FC Dallas to D. C. United for defender Rodney Wallace.
The Timbers and Whitecaps participated in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft on January 13, 2011 with the Whitecaps having the first pick, the Timbers having the second pick. Vancouver surprised some by selecting youngster Omar Salgado and Portland swiftly selected Akron midfielder/forward Darlington Nagbe; the Timbers played their first MLS game on March 19, 2011, against reigning MLS champions Colorado Rapids, but lost 3–1. The first goal in the Timbers' MLS era was scored by Kenny Cooper. In their first season, Portland Timbers finished in 6th place in the Western Conference and 12th place overall. On July 9, 2012, John Spencer was fired after a 0–3 loss to Real Salt Lake. Gavin Wilkinson took over on an interim basis for the rest of the season; the Timbers finished 2012 with the 3rd worst record in the league and was 8th out of 9th in the Western Conference. They did, win the Cascadia Cup in MLS for the first time; the 2013 season began with new Head Coach Caleb Porter, head coach of the United States U-23 team and the University of Akron Zips men's team from 2006 to 2012.
Under Porter, the Timbers achieved immediate success in the 2013 MLS regular season. They finished in first place in the
Tavares is an American R&B, funk and soul music group, composed of five Cape Verdean-American brothers. Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, they would move to New Bedford, Massachusetts, they were inducted into the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame in 2014. They consist of: Ralph — Ralph Edward Vierra Tavares Pooch — Arthur Paul Tavares Chubby — Antone Lee Tavares Butch — Feliciano Vierra Tavares, Jr. Tiny — Perry Lee Tavares The brothers, whose parents were of Cape Verdean descent, started performing in 1959 as Chubby and the Turnpikes when the youngest brother was 9. P-Funk keyboardist/architect Bernie Worrell joined the group in 1968 while attending the New England Conservatory of Music. Future Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer appeared as the "token white-guy drummer" in a incarnation called The Turnpikes from the fall of 1969 until September 1970, when he was invited to join Aerosmith, he was replaced with drummer Paul Klodner and Bassist Steve Strout which gave them a tight a punchy rhythm section.
Chubby and The Turnpikes signed with Capitol Records in 1967 and had a couple of local hit records including "I Know The Inside Story" in 1967 and "Nothing But Promises" in 1968. By 1973, they had changed their name to Tavares and scored their first R&B Top 10 hit with "Check it Out", soon began charting on the R&B and pop charts, their first album included their brother Victor, who sang lead on "Check it Out", but dropped out of the group shortly afterward. In 1974 Tavares had a #1 R&B hit with Hall & Oates's "She's Gone". 1975 turned out to be their most successful year chartwise, with a Top 40 Pop album, the #25 hit "Remember What I Told You to Forget", their biggest hit, the Top 10 Pop/#1 R&B smash "It Only Takes a Minute", successfully covered by both Jonathan King and Take That, sampled by Jennifer Lopez. They parlayed this success into a spot as an opening act for The Jackson 5. KC and The Sunshine Band was on this tour. "Minute" was followed by a string of hits: "Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel", "Don't Take Away the Music", "Whodunit".
In 1977 they recorded "I Wanna See You Soon", a duet with Capitol labelmate Freda Payne which received airplay on BBC Radio 1 but failed to chart. Many of their hits, underplayed their R&B background and gave the group the image of being a disco act; this perception was reinforced by their appearance on the soundtrack to the film Saturday Night Fever in 1977. Tavares recorded the Bee Gees song "More Than a Woman", their version reached the Pop Top 40 that year; the soundtrack became one of the most successful in history. Albums, such as Madam Butterfly and Supercharged, strayed from the disco format and were less successful on the pop chart. At the start of the 1980s, Tavares left Capitol Records, signing with RCA, they had one last major hit, the ballad "A Penny for Your Thoughts", for which they were nominated for a Grammy in 1982. In 1984, Ralph stepped down from the group. Pooch took over as the noncommissioned business/booking agent for TAVARES from 1984-2014. Tiny left in the mid-1990s to pursue his solo career while the other three brothers continued to tour.
Tiny rejoined the group in 2009. In 2014 Pooch suffered a devastating stroke and the business/booking for TAVARES was turned over to Oriola Mngmt LLC. Pooch believed in the family business TAVARES and loyally stayed true to it throughout his singing career, he thanks his brother Ralph for stepping in during his illness. Pooch has regained his health and opts for retirement leaving the fans with the image of his last performance. "It Only Takes a Minute" was covered by British boy band Take That, becoming a Top 10 UK hit, is featured in the soundtrack of Konami's dancing game Dance Dance Revolution 3rd Mix. "Out of the Picture" was sampled by 50 Cent in his 2003 song "Many Men". Musician Feliciano "Flash" Vierra Tavares, the family patriarch and father of all members of Tavares, died in 2008. Chubby Tavares released his first solo album, Jealousy, on July 17, 2012, a few months after Tavares, the Four Tops, the Temptations toured the UK together. Preceding the album a digital-only single was released called "It's Christmas".
On December 17, it reached #5 on Amazon's Acid Jazz chart.
