While paying tribute to former player and all-round Timbers legend Clive Charles before their game against Seattle Sounders on Monday night, the Timbers fans – or ‘Timbers Army’ if you so prefer – hoisted an absolute mammoth of a banner that stretched the entire length and breadth of the stand behind the goal (click through for the full-size image)…

Here’s the big (literally) unfurling, as captured on video…

Impressive, especially as the banner was paid for and produced by the club’s fans, rather than the club themselves. The Timbers also went on to win the game 2-1. Just as well really after a to-do like that!
