Portland, OR - Caleb Porter, glacially slow to react head coach of the Portland Timbers, announced on Monday morning that substitutions for yesterdays game against the New England Revolution would be made during the upcoming Philadelphia Union road game.
"We have a deep squad. We have a confident squad. We feel very comfortable with the options off the bench," stated Porter to the collected masses of press and bloggers.
Reportedly, immediately after the whistle blows to start the game against the Union, Porter will make a double substitution of Darren Mattocks for Darlington Nagbe and Dairon Asprilla for Sebastian Blanco.
Porter then stated, "We will play the rest of 89:59 minutes of the Union game without making a substitution so that we can make our subs for the Union game against Sporting Kansas City."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Porter schedules a two week period to think about whether this is a good option and write a thesis that supports this position.
