Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

Major League Soccer power rankings — week fifteen

1. (1) Los Angeles Galaxy 11-1-3

The best team of the year had the goal of the year with that long-range strike by M Juninho.

2. (2) Real Salt Lake 8-3-3

Watch out for goals. Returned a World Cup starter in F Robbie Findley in a 5-0 rout of N.E.

3. (3) Columbus Crew 8-2-3

A +8 goal differential is by far the best in the East, but the lead over New York is just 2 pts.

4. (4) New York Red Bulls 8-5-1

Played to a draw for the first time this year. Last-place finish in 2009 is a distant memory.

5. (5) Colorado Rapids 6-3-4

Would like better than three straight draws, but its unbeaten streak is now at six games.

6. (7) FC Dallas 5-2-6

Quietly one of the hottest teams in the league with three wins in a row. Plays Seattle next.

7. (6) Toronto FC 5-4-4

Has scored only one goal in the last three games, but didn’t lose (0-0-3) thanks to its defense.

8. (8) San Jose Earthquakes 5-4-4

Winless in 5 games since coming to Qwest, but continue to battle for draws to stay relevant.

9. (9) Chicago Fire 4-4-5

Unbeaten streak came to an end over the weekend & the schedule will get tough: RSL, L.A.

10. (10) Houston Dynamo 5-7-3

Host Columbus next & has surprisingly kept the Crew winless in Robertson Stadium all-time.

11. (12) Philadelphia Union 3-7-2

This is the time for Peter Nowak’s team to make a run with four straight games at PPL Park.

12. (11) Kansas City Wizards 3-7-3

Desperate for a win against Chivas USA. Fortunately have never lost at home to the Goats.

13. (13) Seattle Sounders FC 4-8-3

How far has Seattle fallen? A subpar match against L.A. doesn’t drop them in the rankings.

14. (15) D.C. United 3-9-2

Let’s see how long they can hold on to prodigy Andy Najar, 17, who scored again against S.J.

15. (16) Chivas USA 3-9-2

On the rise? Won midweek in the Open Cup and then ended a losing streak against Philly.

16. (14) New England Revolution 3-9-2

Things won’t get easier for the league’s worst ‘D’ when Donovan and L.A. come to town.
