Sounders Insider

Pre-Sounders news items out of Portland

The Sounders are training at Qwest today, and I'm hoping for direct access to Fredy Montero there. Naturally, I'll pop back in here with anything that adds to the Fulham situation reported yesterday.

Meanwhile, a couple of items out of Portland.

This apparently is the day that the city council there will give final thumbs up -- or not -- to the plan to renovate PGE Park for that 2011 expansion into Portland.

Also, the Timbers have signed former Sounder Kevin Forrest, thrilling headline writers everywhere with the possible plays on the words "Timber" and "Forrest."
