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

My MLS power rankings — Week 15

Real Salt Lake Logo.jpg1. (1) Real Salt Lake 10-3-2

Seven-game unbeaten run ties the longest in MLS this year.

2. (3) D.C. United 9-4-3

Maicon Santos has 7 goals, nearly as many as Philly and TFC (8).

3. (4) Sporting Kansas City 9-3-1

Boasts the stingiest ‘D’ in the league with just 10 goals allowed.

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

Will await the returns of Henry, Marquez after first loss in two months.

5. (5) San Jose Earthquakes 8-3-3

Will briefly hand the keys over to young GK David Bingham with Jon Busch suspended.

6. (7) Vancouver Whitecaps FC 7-3-4

Took advantage of its rivals’ struggles to earn the highest ranking among Cascadia teams.

7. (8) Columbus Crew 5-4-4

Undefeated in six games (3-0-3) following a dismal April of no wins, three losses, one tie.

8. (6) Seattle Sounders FC 7-4-3

Slump buster? Seattle has won five-straight games against its next opponent: Kansas City.

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

Former A-League Sounder Brian Ching needs one assist to tie second most in team history.

10. (9) Colorado Rapids 6-7-1

Lousy road form (2-6) might be an issue if the playoff race gets tight down the stretch.

11. (14) Chicago Fire 6-5-3

Stretch of three games in 11 days features two tough road tests: Kansas City and Houston.

12. (15) Montreal Impact 4-7-3

Coach Jesse Marsch returns this week to Chivas USA, where he finished his 14-year career.

13. (12) New England Revolution 5-7-2

Federal Way’s Kelyn Rowe leads the league in shot accuracy with 73.7 percent on target.

14. (16) Los Angeles Galaxy 4-8-2

Woes haven’t kept Beckham and Donovan from leading All-Star voting for midfielders.

15. (11) Chivas USA 4-7-3

Giving hosts, to say the least. A 1-6-1 record at the HDC is the team’s worst start at home.

16. (13) Portland Timbers FC 3-6-4

Ex-Sounder Mike Fucito would surely love to follow Lamar Neagle’s lead in beating Seattle.

17. (17) FC Dallas 3-9-4

Worst in the West in goals allowed (26), goal differential (minus-10) and road record (0-7-1).

18. (18) Toronto FC 1-10-0

Having three players arrested was another sad chapter in a supremely disappointing season.

19. (19) Philadelphia Union 2-8-2

New coach. Same results. John Hackworth’s first game in charge was a 1-0 loss to D.C.
