Getty ImagesHear that sound? Its the sound of a cash register running again and again as Kenny Cooper scores. Another weekend and another brace from Cooper, this time on the road in arguable the toughest venue in MLS BMO Field.

A pair of late second-half goals from Kenny Cooper led FC Dallas to a 2-0 win. Cooper is now tied atop the Budweiser Golden Boot standings with Landon Donovan with 13 goals on the year. A couple weeks ago Cooper was only on pace to net about 15 goals this season, now it seems like he could get 20 or even 25 at the current tear that he is on.

There was really no doubt this weekend who was the best player and who had the best game. There were a couple others out there that had a solid weekend but none as good as Cooper’s two goals.

Now if Dallas can just hold on to him for another two weeks they could be looking at a playoff birth with Cooper.

Anyways, week 19 ended similar to week 18 with Cooper on top as the league’s Player of the Week.

Goal of the week was a little tougher to decide this week. Not that many goals to pick from here. Cooper had a nice one to put the game away for Dallas against Toronto but I felt Houston’s Brad Davis had a great strike in their 2-0 win over the Crew.

    Respectfully, the best FCD player Sunday was Pablo Ricchetti. Cooper had a great game starting at about the 75th minute, but Pablo was a monster all 90….<br />

    HSG finally did the right thing by keeping Cooper. They might end up costing themselves a few million dollars, but if they'd sold him now the season was over. Now it looks like there is something good going on…
