Kenny Cooper looks good and aggressive. What's with him not getting the start?

Mostly because he's sucked lately. Maybe some bench time did him good.

Edit: And it's over. Sad day.

Yeah, light a fire under his a$$. I like that strategy to get him going. IMO he's too dangerous in front of the goal to keep off the field. You think he would have finished that ball tha Perlaza let run across the goal mouth?

Agreed on the benching. That helps sometimes. I swear they were going to tie it up there in 89'

Good match overall, though it sucks to decide a derby on a PK.

I've never been super impressed with Perlaza. He's inconsistent and oftentimes doesn't work as hard as he could be.

It's great to see the Lady Yanks in the final!

First half saw some good possession-oriented soccer from both sides, each getting their own chances. Can't believe that Wachbach shot in the 27' hit the frame... I jumped up and was about to dance around my kitchen when I saw the shot go up. So sad

We must be watching different games when it comes to the Timbers. I have season tickets and have got to say that Cooper is the laziest, slowest, and overall least impressive player I have seen on the squad lately. He is consistently slow to react to plays that he should be making a move on. He has only scored 3 goals this year and hasn't scored in 3 months.

Perlaza on the other hand has always played his heart out on the field and makes a run at everything anywhere close to him.

Zizzo has been playing very aggressively lately also, really enjoying watching him on the pitch.

Good points, Joker, and I agree with them all. That match on the 10th was an outlier... Cooper was doing well and Perlaza was sloppy and slow. I guess it was opposite day.

But congrats to them for getting their first road win!

Well, we're agreed on Cooper. I pretty much just see him sitting up top waiting to draw a foul and not doing much besides.

If you're down on Cooper for scoring only 3 goals, why not be down on Perlaza for scoring only 4? I guess I feel like I see other players doing more with their chances and chasing down the ball when they lose it. (I'm also a little tired of seeing the D-line scoring as many goals as the forwards).

I can agree here too.
