Every Timbers Goal Of 2011 In Less Than 10 Minutes

Posted by Brian Gjurgevich on Thu, Dec 1, 2011 at 9:33 PM

That'll have to hold you over until March 12, when Portland kicks off its season with some Monday night football against a yet-to-be-determined opponent at the House of Pane. Also TBD? The Timbers' roster, which is reportedly poised to add 19-year-old Colombian José Adolfo Valencia as its newest Designated Player.

Portland owner Merritt Paulson twinted at the potentially history-making move to match Valencia with fellow countrymen Diego Chará (PTFC's only other DP) and Jorge Perlaza.

Click past the jump for the Rose City's current roster (for now), plus a peek at what Valencia would bring to the Timbers' 2012 mixtape.

After declining options on seven players earlier this week, Portland's squad at this point looks like so:

Keepers (2): Jake Gleeson, Troy Perkins
Defenders (8): Eric Brunner, Mike Chabala, Futty Danso, David Horst, Lovel Palmer, Steve Purdy, Chris Taylor, Rodney Wallace
Midfielders (8): Eric Alexander, Kalif Alhassan, Freddie Braun, Diego Chara, Jack Jewsbury, James Marcelin, Darlington Nagbe, Sal Zizzo
Forwards (4): Kenny Cooper, Bright Dike, Eddie Johnson, Jorge Perlaza

How will Portland's 2012 highlight reel look once Valencia is officially official? Potentially a bit more like this:
