Sounders FC

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

Major League Soccer power rankings — week seventeen

1. (1) Los Angeles Galaxy 12-2-3

Led by Omar Gonzalez, 21, defensive form remains remarkable with just 8 goals allowed.

2. (3) Columbus Crew 9-3-4

Win over N.Y. earned it a little cushion in the East before Thierry Henry takes the field.

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

No team is playing better than Schellas Hyndman’s side, which has lost once since April 22.

4. (2) Real Salt Lake 9-4-3

Stumbled against FCD, but has four very winnable games coming: Chivas, D.C., K.C., Philly.

5. (4) New York Red Bulls 8-6-2

Have scored only one goal in a winless July (0-1-2). Sounds like they’ll sign a third DP soon.

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

It’s been 6 games since someone other than Conor Casey or Omar Cummings scored.

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

Haven’t played an MLS game in a while, but looked solid against EPL’s Tottenham in draw.

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

Poor on the road (1-5-1) but unbeaten at home (5-0-3), and 4 of next 6 games are at BMO.

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

New DP, fiery Mexican F Nery Castillo, could put them over the top or into a freefall.

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

Hoping to make a splash in SuperLiga while on an MLS break with 3rd straight semis app.

11. (12) Seattle Sounders FC 5-8-4

Efforts against Dallas and D.C. a good start, but will need to get on a hot streak, and fast.

12. (16) Kansas City Wizards 4-8-4

Mexican F Omar Bravo, a former star at Club Deportivo Guadalajara, could be a great find.

13. (15) Philadelphia Union 4-8-2

Le Toux continues to shine for his new team. Goals + assists total (14) is the highest in MLS.

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

Hard to drop a team despite not playing MLS game, but a -11 goal differential calls for it.

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

Stuck in 8th place in powerful Western Conference. Could battle for 6th in the lowly East.

16. (14) D.C. United 3-11-3

Not sure why veteran forward Jaime Moreno (one goal) is an all-star. I’d vote for Andy Najar.
