Obviously these two players are both very skilled but do clearly have different skills sets. However, the thing that I find the most different about them is that Nagbe seems like a shrinking violet at many times during the game and Mattocks just has this aggression when he is on the ball or in the box. I wish Nagbe had some more of that. In fact I wish more Timbers players had that (Boyd I think has it and Mwanga might to some degree as well). Might lead to some dumb cards but I want out strikers to have more of that.
Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
