BRIEF: Join Portland Timbers and Thorns reporter Jamie Goldberg for a live chat Tuesday at 1 p.m.

The Oregonian, Portland, Ore. — Jamie Goldberg The Oregonian, Portland, Ore.

March 13--The Portland Timbers fell apart in an embarrassing 4-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls Saturday.

After back-to-back losses, it is clear that Portland coach Giovanni Savarese and the Timbers (0-2-0, 0 points) have a lot of work to do if they hope to start turning things around in coming weeks. The Timbers will have a week off to regroup before traveling to face FC Dallas on March 24.

The Portland Thorns opened their preseason tournament with a match against the Chicago Red Stars Sunday and will continue the tournament with a game against the U.S. U-23 Women's National Team Wednesday. The Thorns will open their 2018 NWSL regular season campaign against the North Carolina Courage on March 24.

I'll be hosting a live chat here at 1 p.m. on Tuesday to answer all of your Timbers, Thorns, NWSL and MLS questions. Send your questions to @jamiebgoldberg on Twitter or leave your questions in the comments section and I'll stop by and answer everything at 1 p.m. We'll post a recap of the Q&A here.
