Darlington Nagbe is my favorite Timbers player.
Bright Dike, obviously. In a city like Portland, who wouldn’t love a name like that?
J.D. Yeager says
Darlington Nagbe, because of the sick goal he scored against K.C….
Ed H. says
Tough call. I’d have to say Gleeson. He stepped it up when he was needed, and is a Timbers prodigy, coming up through the U-23s.
Futty is a close second, though. (For very similar reasons.)
Captain Jack Jewsbury. Consistent, reliable, and has a wicked distance shot.
Andy Yaxley says
Captain Jack: when of our most reliable performers. Without his assists and goals, well we would be a lot worse off!
Tim C says
Bright Dike. He’s a beast and will flatten defenders…
Troy Perkins. The man can deal with the pressure.
Jack Jewsbury. Imagine what the Timbers would look like without him…
This is extremely difficult, but I have to go with captain Jack.
Tim Holiday says
It varies a little….but for RIGHT now…Mr. “Good Hands” Perkins. I’m still agog over his masterful performance at Chicago! He’s gettin’ a poster for that!
Kalif Alhassan. Most exciting to watch along with Nagbe and he doesn’t have any votes!
Troy Perkins. I choose our keeper because he is a consistently great player. I’m frequently astonished by the quality of that man’s saves.
Chara has really shown some great growth this season, I have been super impressed with his end line to end line play in the last few games.
Kalif Alhassan. How can you not love a guy that will beat two players, take off for goal, then trip over his own feet? Definitely the best representative of our team.
Has to be Sal Zizzo. No Timber brings more energy to the game than Sal.
I’ve been a really huge fan of what I’ve seen from Troy Perkins! He’s been the lone bright spot in a really really bad area of the team and watching him make incredible save after incredible save after our defense breaks down is great.
Jack Jewsbury…he is just smooth out on the pitch and delivers a great ball. Plus he seems like such a quality guy off the pitch too.
Nick S says
Darlington Nagbe, the young gun
Captain Jack Jewsbury, without a doubt. He’s been consistent, great from distance and knows where to get the ball so his teammates have a good shot at a goal.
Troy Perkins! Without him, we’d be sitting with Vancouver at the absolute bottom of the table.
Darlington Nagbe. Up-and-coming superstar. He’s gonna be huge.
matthew tabacchi says
Perlaza is my favorite and excited about a healthy Dike!
Benjamin Wehage says
Captain Jack! He has pinpoint accuracy. He’s team first. He was still very disappointed after he got selected for the All-Star team because it was the same day we lost to Seattle. He is humble. And represents Portland very well.
