Sounders FC

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

July 14, 2010 at 9:53 AM

Major League Soccer power rankings — week sixteen

1. (1) Los Angeles Galaxy 11-2-3

The USOC loss to Seattle was forgivable. But a lackluster defeat to lowly N.E. is concerning.

2. (2) Real Salt Lake 9-3-3

Slowly but surely gaining ground on the vaunted Galaxy. Shutout streak now at 498 minutes.

3. (3) Columbus Crew 8-2-4

Could earn some separation in the Eastern Conference with a home win against the Red Bulls.

4. (4) New York Red Bulls 8-5-2

Thursday will surely mark Thierry Henry’s arrival to MLS, but who else could come?

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

David Ferreira was again the hero against Seattle, but he’ll need help to knock off mighty RSL.

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

The Reds keep rolling. Now unbeaten in last 8 games in MLS and 11 in all competitions.

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

Winless in more than a month, but playing four of five at home should get them on track.

8. (8) San Jose Earthquakes 6-4-4

Perhaps the most surprising part of Frank Yallop’s upstart team? A winning 3-2-2 road record.

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

On a team with significant offensive talent, MF Marco Pappa (6 goals) has risen to top.

10. (10) Houston Dynamo 5-7-4

After three straight ties, the guys in Orange get a week’s break from MLS for SuperLiga action.

11. (16) New England Revolution 4-9-2

A head-turning 2-0 win against the Galaxy could be just the spark to turn its season around.

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

The era of veteran Blaise Nkufo starts soon. But the play of the team’s youth is more crucial.

13. (15) Chivas USA 4-9-2

Getting results against Philly and K.C. is one thing. Columbus and Salt Lake are next up.

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

Could have help available vs. Seattle: DP MF Branko Boskovic and F Pablo Hernandez

15. (11) Philadelphia Union 3-8-2

Disappointed with home loss to San Jose, but will enjoy playing 3 straight at PPL Park.

16. (12) Kansas City Wizards 3-8-3

Just one win in their last 12 games dating to April. Surely, coach Peter Vermes has to go.
