Some People Dislike Kenny Cooper

People don’t like Kenny Cooper. He is probably used to it by now. They didn’t always like him in Dallas where he racked up forty goals in ninety games. They didn’t always like him in England or Germany where he he was busy with a broken ankle. They didn’t always like him here in Portland where he was the Timbers leading scorer.

The subject of KFC is a divisive one among Timbers fans. Some love him, some hate him, everyone wishes that he had scored more goals this year.

As most of the complaints about Cooper seem to center around his lack of production, here are a few players that you haters should like even less.

Player - Goals Per Game

Kenny Cooper - .24 (8/34)

Caleb Folan - .23 (6/26)

Juan Agudelo - .22 (6/27)

Alejandro Moreno - .21 (5/24)

Danny Mwanga - .18 (5/28)

Josh Wolff - .17 (5/30)

Roger Levesque - .16 (2/19)

Cam Weaver - .14 (4/28)

Omar Cummings - .12 (3/26)

Fabian Castillo - .09 (2/21)

Robbie Rogers - .07 (2/27)

Three players getting regular national team minutes, three more players capped for the USA, and two USL era Seattle Sounders make up the list.

Now, I like Kenny Cooper. Some people reacted poorly to his attempt to score chip Nick Rimondo from distance on last Saturday, but for me it recalled a happier time in KFC’s career, a time when he would do things like this.

However, I respect your opinions. So please take this opportunity to air your grievances against Kenny Cooper in the comments and I will pop back in later to tell you all how wrong you are.
