Portland has no defense. Can't see surviving in the playoffs giving up 2-3 road goals a tie. Plus Nagbe will be in Scotland and he does all the little things that keep the team going.

Portland has Guzman to guard the backline, which is nowhere near as bad as you suggest - AND they'll soon be signing their top CB target to arrive in summer.

As for Nagbe, erm... huh?
