Porter: Valeri is the straw that stirs the drink
Portland Timbers head coach Caleb Porter stopped by the Bald Faced Truth on Monday afternoon to talk about the upcoming postseason in Major League Soccer.
Caleb talked about the Timbers being the top seed in the Western Conference. “This is probably the tightest race in MLS history arguably. There are a lot of very good teams this year in the west and for us to end up number one after 34 games says a lot about what we have done.”
The team has had a stunning turnaround from last season and Porter says mentality plays a big role in that. “You look at the top teams in any sport and the top coaches, these guys are psychologists. They understand that winning is a habit and losing is a habit. Knowing how to win is not easy. You got to stay confident but you got to stay humble and grounded. It’s easy to win a game, but it’s not easy to keep winning.”
