Someone said Nagbe is the most technically gifted player in our pool. If that is the case then our pool isn't that good. If this guy was as good as some of you think. He would be playing at a top club in Europe like our best technically-gifted players should be playing. The dude is a good player but not great, if he was anything more he would be more consistent.

Kkinsman is an absolute idiot if he let's nagbe go. He fucked up already might as well make up with him. And I agree with nagbe why call him up and give him no playing time. Maybe because he has no German roots could that be the case. Geez SMH!!

This is ridiculous.... We all go through adversity in different forms during our lives. If you get passed over for a promotion at work are you going to quit the next day or do you keep working hard to ensure that you get the opportunity you feel you deserve? Life isnt fair and it isn't always going to go the way we want it to... So man up and keep grinding day in, day out and you'll be rewarded in time.

I am not super concerned about the lack of Nagbe. I would personally still call him up, but I am not going to lose sleep over it.

Mohammed Aboutrika was the most gifted player in all of Africa. Outside of Jay Jay, probably on of the greatest of all time. In terms of skill and talent.

Never went to Europe. He cared more about his family and being close to them than to be in an environment where he would be less secure. Definitely wouldn't have cut it in European setting, and that's outside of the nature of faith and culture.

It's ok if you don't "think" Nagbe isn't technical. You would think an evaluation would be centered around critique of minute instances, instead of statistics. Like "see how he does this". There's no stat that can tell you how technical you are.

Like I see Michael Bradley, and I cringe every time I see him dribble. How more people don't see this is weird. Cameron doesn't speed past anyone, but he keeps his dribble tight, because he knows how to apply the proper touch on it. Cameron isn't a god, he isn't out best midfielder, our most productive, I'm admitting all of that, but with regards to possession and keeping the ball he's up there, and imo above Bradley. For us, of course. He's doing it at Stoke right now if i'm not mistaken.

Now back to Bradley, his passes in space, he hits it on the top of the ball when he wants to get weight on it, spin forward (very good technique). when he switches field, he gets under it (spin backwards) so that it doesn't power through like in a clearance. See stuff like that, Nagbe does ALOT of.

As far as European interest, I could have sworn, from Porter as well, in articles leading up to is citizenship, that Nagbe wasn't even interested in the slightest. THAT should have been the first second and third justified gripe from Klinsmann, that he doesn't like to be prodded or pushed.

Just a couple champs league games a year and that's it. Would rather him go to the Dutch league or even the French league.

To be clear, the Scottish League wasn't the nauseating part for me. I cannot stand Celtic.

Brendan Rodgers, rates Nagbe. Awesome. He's heavy on the Joe Allen, Midfielder mold.
