PortlandTimbers

The Timbers will cut their trialists to one or two by the end of the week, coach and General Manager Gavin Wilkinson says. • The coaching staff will pick the team captain(s). “Leadership can be in many different ways. It can be verbal or the style in which they play,” Wilkinson says. • Wilkinson, on Virginia Beach folding last week and forcing the Timbers to re-do their schedule, adding a fourth and fifth game against expansion California: “I think it’s disgraceful how a professional organization can pull the pin at this time of the season. For all the work the other players and coaches have put in, it’s pretty much a slap in the face.” — Steve Brandon
