I've always liked Cooper and when he plays his game he is effective and influential on the game. That usually equates to goals. Cooper is not a #9, though he has the body and the look. For whatever reasons, he's not that guy to post up and back a defender down to stretch the field out. When he has that space to move around, side to side, coming from an angle that's when he's at his best. But it's not in the traditional sense of a second forward either; simply because he doesn't "buzz" around the field. He works in a relatively confined, yet effective channel. That's why he's been the absolute perfect partner for Henry. Henry can drop a little deeper, maybe a little wider and it sucks and pulls the defense one way which allows Cooper to get into those channels he's comfortable playing in. If Klinsmann can find a why to utilize Cooper in this way, I'm all for a call-up. Maybe it could work with a Demspey pairing up top. Who knows. But Klinsmann if uses him as a #9 I'd rather see him back at RBNY succeeding than with the Nats being uneffective.
