It’s a “usual suspects” kind of thing near the top as we look at the top MLS scorers over the last two years. (That is, over the complete 2012 season and the first two months of 2013.)

You’ve got your Wondos and Henrys, for sure.

But look who has crept into the Top 10, guys like Will Bruin and Jack McInerney. Mike Magee, based on his strong start, finds himself among the Top 15.

Here’s the list:

  • 1. Chris Wondolowski, San Jose            32 goals in 43 games
  • 2. Thierry Henry, NY Red Bulls               20 in 36
  • 3. Alvaro Saborio, Real Salt Lake            20 in 37
  • 4. Kenny Cooper, FC Dallas                   20 in 43
  • 5. Robbie Keane, LA Galaxy                  17 in 31
  • 6. Eddie Johnson, Seattle                      16 in 33
  • 7. Will Bruin, Houston                           16 in 41
  • 8. Alan Gordon, San Jose                   15 in 26
  • 9. Jack McInerney, Philadelphia             14 in 34
  • 10. Chris Pontius, DC United                 12 in 38
  • 11. Fabian Espindola, NY Red Bulls       12 in 40
  • 12. Blas Perez, FC Dallas                     12 in 27
  • 13. Kei Kamara, Sporting KC                 11 in 33
  • 14. Mike Magee, LA Galaxy                   11 in 37
  • 15. Saer Sene, New England                  11 in 30
  • 15. Ryan Johnson, Portland                    11 in 41

    Not sure why you would think that Will Bruin is a surprise. Runner up for the Herrmann trophy behind Nagbe. He scored 12 MLS goals last year…16 total. Not exactly coming out of the dark.

    The guy can play.

      Not really saying I am “surprised” … but he’s hardly a household name for casual fans. Look at the two names just in front of him, Robbie Keane and Eddie Johnson. Both are far, far better known. See what I mean? Just pointing out that Bruin and Jack Mac are right there alongside, numbers-wise.

    I’m surprised that Kamara isn’t higher up the list.

    Fredy Montero is on loan this year, but would be 10th based on his 2012 alone.
