Social Timeline: Sounders dismantle Timbers in crazy 4-2 match at Providence Park

Have you all caught your breath yet? That was something else.

Your Seattle Sounders Football Club marched on down to Portland and put on a show for the ages in its 4-2 thrashing of arch-rival Portland Timbers. In doing so, the Sounders reminded the other 18 clubs in MLS of what the most dangerous attack in the league looks like. In other words, you won't like Oba when he's hungry. 

Goals came from Martins, Dempsey, Barrett and then Martins again (a goal that literally took my breath away) en route to the 4-2 victory. Just what a magnificent day it was.

Now that we're all back in Seattle and reveling in the wonderment that came from the match, let's look back and relive it all over again. All. Over. Again.

Here goes.

But first, a little fun with our friend to the south.

The day had come…and Oba was certainly the right choice for this fancy little graphic.


Only the beginning of the awesomeness.

Then the team arrived. There was much applause.

Drew was in the house…and I heard he bought a few beers, too.

Lineups were in…and this is a beaut. A real beaut, Clark.

And in sweet Instagram video form.

Our friends at the Reign giving us some love. We’d reciprocate later.

Chad was ready…as we would see.

It was go time, people.

Obbbbbbbbaaaaaa. His name is so fun to type with all the extra letters!

The flips…how we missed them.

It was a nice goal, people. A very nice goal.

Then Clint got in on the fun with the most awesome of runs through the middle.

What a first half it was. Couldn’t ask for more as a Sounders supporter. Two goals in front of the TA? Take it.

Let’s make it three, shall we? #rhyming

Portland got one back and then Oba dropped a bomb with this unreal goal. Just watch it over and over and over.

Bad defending, Shane. Bad defending. AND OBA BEING AMAZING.

Donezo. What a match. WHAT. A. MATCH.

Djimbo was pleased with the result!

ECS and co were happy about the result, too.

Is that not exactly what Clint is thinking in this picture?

Subtle, Brad. Very subtle.

Absolutely top drawer.

More on that later!

Ozzie with the very positive message after a very positive match.

Great stuff from Stefan today as well. A few KEY saves.

Can’t stop, won’t stop.

Yep. Statement officially made.

Let the numbers speak for themselves.

Look at Marcus!

All kinds of positive things for Seattle soccer yesterday.

Like seriously. Not fair on the rest of the league.

And for your viewing pleasure…
