SKC-MLS-CupThe new MLS Power Rankings are out and the Seattle Sounders stay in the number one position. What amazes me is that after losing seven games in a row, that the New England Revolution are viewed as only the third worst side in MLS. How bad are Houston and Montreal?

Don’t usually get wound up about All-Star snubs, but to say Benny Feilhaber wouldn’t help vs. Bayern is bonkers.

seattle-sounders-fansMajor League Soccer has announced its complete 2014 regular season schedule, and just as it did during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, MLS will take a two-week break between June 12-24, when the 2014 World Cup is taking place in Brazil.

The league’s 19th season will begin on Saturday, March 8 in Seattle, where the host Sounders will take on Sporting Kansas City at CenturyLink Field, followed by seven matches that evening and one on Sunday, March 9. The regular season will end on Oct. 26 before the MLS Cup playoffs begin the following week.


Revs Coach Jay HeapThe New England Revolution is returning to the MLS Cup Playoffs for the first time in four seasons after a nail biting 1-0 win against the Columbus Crew at Crew Stadium. The win, combined with other results around the league, meant the Revs ended the season in third place on the Eastern.

New England finished the season by going 4-0-2 in its last six games, including a 2-0-1 mark on the road in that stretch.

Major League Soccer has released its 2013 schedule and it has a new wrinkle this season: Rivalry Week.

Eight of the nine matches in Week 3 (March 16 weekend) will pit regional rivals against one another, with the NBC Sports Group on board to air three live matches that weekend showcasing some of the league’s premier rivalries.

Rivalry week games include:

The beginning of the 2012 Major League Soccer season is right around the corner and the folks over at MLS Soccer have released their first preseason power rankings. As expected the LA Galaxy are on top, while the New England Revolution get no love, as MLS Soccer ranks them below the expansion side Montreal Impact.

What do you think of the rankings?

1: LA Galaxy
Robbie Keane, Landon Donovan, Edson Buddle, Mike Magee, David Beckham … holy crap this team is going to score a lot of goals. Chances are, though, that they’ll concede a few more than in recent years thanks to the departure of Juninho and the injury to Omar Gonzalez. Still, Bruce Arena has to be salivating over the talent at his disposal this season.


The folks over at have update their weekly power rankings. No surprise that Real Salt Lake is in first place. The Portland Timbers are one of the big winners moving up to four places after a week that consisted of two home games, seven goals and six points.

Major League Soccer Week 5 Rankings

1. Real Salt Lake
No. 1 in the MLS power rankings, and fighting to be No. 1 in CONCACAF as well. The next 10 days will determine whether this RSL bunch go down as a great team, or a truly legendary one. Win or lose against Monterrey, this is still the best team in MLS until someone proves otherwise.
Last Four: WWWW


Little change in the rankings this week as the favored teams all won at the weekend. This is how MLSoccer ranks the MLS teams after three weeks of the season.

1: Real Salt Lake
Nothing anyone in the league did this past weekend could have knocked RSL out of the top spot: a 4-0-1 mark in all competitions heading into Tuesday’s CONCACAF Champions League semifinal second leg, Nick Rimando the Player of the Month for March and every reason to believe the RSL machine will keep chugging along indefinitely.


There’s no doubt about who’s ranked number one this week. Real Salt Lake thrashed the LA Galaxy to show that they are the class of MLS at the moment.

MLS Rankings: Week 2
1. REAL SALT LAKE (2-0-0)
Last week: Beat Los Angeles, 4-1, on Saturday.

This week: Idle.

Outlook: Is there any doubt which team deserves the top spot after RSL‘s rout of the Galaxy at Rio Tinto? Granted, the Galaxy was without Landon Donovan, Omar Gonzalez, Greg Berhalter and Donovan Ricketts, but RSL didn’t have key starters Alvaro Saborio and Will Johnson, either. Javier Morales was the star of the show, and RSL looks to ride its momentum into its CONCACAF Champions League semifinal second leg at Saprissa next Tuesday.
