Video: Kenny Cooper Scores Against Hertha Berlin



Here's a name we haven't called in a while: Frankencooper. The big man has been kind of quietly doing his thing for Munich 1860 but made a bit of noise today by scoring the second of his side's goals against Hertha Berlin. Not a bad day at all for Americans Outsourced To Europe™, no?

UPDATE: Apparently this goal was not scored today and is as aged as Paolo Maldini.

Yo, though I think this goes without saying . . Ken-Ken is having himself a good time out in Germany.

Was that the Boss sitting in the stands at the end of the highlight?

Eric said...

yup, having a great time with 3 goals and no assists as a forward. does anyone know how well the manager and team like him?

Jeff said...

isn't he hurt? Hence the low stats

Brian said...

Yeah pretty sure Super Cooper has been hurt for a while

Eric said...

yes, but he's taken 28 shots in 8 games in which he's played. that's second on the team under the leading scorer, who's taken 33. the fact that he's taken that many shots without legitimate output is an ode to his incompetence. though given the praise he seems to get on this site, it will probably go unnoticed here. you have to remember he's playing in the german second division; it's not like he's been shooting on the best keepers. most of the players have not even gotten time on their respective national teams.

@Eric: 28 shots/3 goals. Currently CR9 has taken 63 shots and has 7 goals, and 1 of those goals was a PK.

So Cooper has a ~11% (.107) scoring rate.
CR9 - 11% (0.111) scoring rate

What's your point again?
