The LA Galaxy are up in Oregon ready to take on the Portland Timbers. The starting lineups have been announced and players are warming up.

Bruce Arena goes with the same "Landon Donovan's on Gold Cup duty" lineup as he has for the last three matches. Zardes is starting to become questionable as he gives himself the green light every time he has the ball in the final attacking quarter of the pitch. Hector Jimenez has stepped up his play in the midfield.

LA Galaxy subs: Perk, Meyer, Mastroeni, Stephens, Clark, Villarreal, McBean

Same subs as well.

Timbers XI: Ricketts, Jewsbury ©, Jean-Baptiste, Danso, Harrington, Chara, Nagbe, Zemanski, Valeri, R. Johnson, Alhassan

Timbers Sub: Kocic, Miller, McKenzie, Zizzo, Valencia, Piquionne, Rincon

Piquionne on the bench for the Timbers, so the story of his leaving the Martinique national team gets curiouser and curiouser.

Kickoff: 8pm

TV: NBC Sports Network

What do you think of the lineup? Was it time for another change or is the consistency worth it. Is Gyasi Zardes going to get his accurate shooting boots on?
