The Caleb Porter-led Portland Timbers have never been a side lacking in confidence.

The first-year head coach has instilled a hard-working sense of self-belief tempered with humbleness amongst the group from Day 1. Heading into their first-ever MLS Cup Playoffs – coming off a 5-0 drubbing of Chivas USA in the weekend’s season finale – as the top seed in the Western Conference that couldn’t be more true.

“This group is very, very hungry,” Porter told over the phone. “And I think they smell a little bit of blood in the water with the playoffs. And I like our chances. Obviously, it’s not going to be easy, the teams we’re going to have to match up against are very good teams.”
