Portland Timbers coach Caleb Porter shoots back at critics of the team's early performance in the 2013 MLS season.
The Timbers are 0-1-3.
"People will focus on the negatives, and there are some negatives — we haven't won a game … and we've given up the first goal in all four games. But I'm focused on the positives," he says.
Porter, in his first season with the club, will get a win the next time out, 2-0 over the Houston Dynamo, and the Timbers will go on to reach the Western Conference finals before falling to Real Salt Lake 1-0.
