Hate for a nice former Timber to go through an OG, love that a former Timber is still a Timber.

On draw with Timbers:
“Portland deserved to win, every time they were kicking the ball forward it seemed like they were going to score. I don’t think Portland deserved to draw the game, and I didn’t think we deserved to draw the game either. They deserved to win.”
On atmosphere at JELD-WEN Field:
“I’ve played in a lot of stadiums before. It was a great atmosphere playing at Barcelona, playing at Arsenal, playing some big games in the World Cup, but I have to say the fans are amazing. Credit to them, they are amazing – they didn’t stop singing, they were there an hour before the game outside singing. Wow. Amazing.”
Thierry Henry, post-game 6/19/11
Say what you will about handballs, one of the biggest stars in the world only has the classiest of remarks for our team and fans. Not bad, Portland.
