Matt Pentz’s MLS power rankings
|Matt Pentz’s MLS power rankings
|Last week’s rankings in parentheses
|| Sounders FC
||Portland trip looks to have rejuvenated the Supporter’s Shield leaders.
||Hard to imagine more impressive win than scoring two goals while a man down against RSL.
||A 3-0 rout to depose the leaders of the East in their own house is worth leap in the rankings.
||Real Salt Lake
||Frustrating night in Frisco written off as more of a matchup problem than anything else.
||The league game of the week comes early when the Galaxy plays host to red-hot DCU.
||A 3-0 loss to be deposed atop the East in your own house is worth a big drop in the rankings.
||The gap between spots six and seven is a chasm: Toronto draws with Chicago yet moves up.
|| I was just underwhelmed by the Crew until a scorching past few weeks.
||Fight between sleepers for final postseason berth in West has become a battle of attrition.
||N.Y. Red Bulls
||Fightin’ Thierry Henrys took the expected three points for their home match vs. Montreal.
||One last chance in Vancouver this weekend to breathe life into fledging playoff hopes.
||Beating San Jose at home is one thing. Do the same vs. Toronto and we’ll talk.
||Nothing like adding the missing piece (Jermaine Jones) to your midfield via blind draw.
||Seemed on way to a statement win until second-half Galaxy rally continued free fall.
||Credit to San Jose’s discipline and threat on the counter to squeeze a point from Seattle trip.
||Two wins out of four is good start. Two losses out of four won’t cut it when so far behind.
||The jilted party in the Jones saga, losing out on a potential franchise player.
||The last five results – L-L-L-D-L – tells you all you need to know about another lost summer.
||Montreal only club averaging less than a point per match, and at 0.7, it’s not even close.
