Snapshot: Portland Timbers Fans Hoist Mahoosive Tifo Banner In Tribute To Club Legend Clive Charles

By Chris Wright

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!

(Thanks to Pies fan Sean Beam for the nudge!)

    @Toz – you cared enough to comment.

    getting seriously arsed off with the anti-MLS stuff on here. It’s almost as bad as the anti-soccer brigade in the States.

    Get a life

    this is awesome no matter the league

  6. Patrick says:

    But to have a “legend” doesn’t the team have to be around a bit longer than the Timbers?

  7. sweek says:

    The Portland Timbers have been around since 1975. I think that’s enough time to develop a legend or two?
