Welcome to The Backcut

The Backcut. 

In logging terms, it's the last of the cuts needed to fell a tree. As an experienced logger would tell you, it's a key element to make for a clean cut.

For us, it's the beginning of a new blog that sits at the intersection of Timbers, soccer, and culture. We'll talk about Timbers news, sure, but we'll also talk about great soccer books you can't do without, important soccer results from a local area match, random soccer tales from around the world, films, music, tidbits, and more. At least, that's the plan.

Join us as we go on this journey deep into the various nooks and crannies of this grand game we call football. Or soccer. Take your pick.
