Sounders start week closer to playoff position

standings 05202013


Another big win and another jump up the standings.

Sounders FC is up to sixth in the Western Conference after Saturday’s 4-2 home win against league-leading FC Dallas. You’ll also notice Seattle is fifth in points-per-game, if you like to make your judgments that way.

In other stats, the Sounders are first in goals allowed (tied for first in MLS), tied for third in goal differential, and only three teams in the entire league have fewer losses.

That worst-ever start is long forgotten. The 2010 Sounders hold that mark through 10 games at 3-4-3 and the 2011 Sounders started 3-3-4.

Any thoughts heading into the week?
