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?

Xander Bailey. Enough said.

Last Week: Bye
Last Five: W-W-W-L-W
Next MLS Game: July 28 vs. LA

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


New England RevolutionWhen you are struggling to score goals, as the New England Revolution are doing this season, then you need help from unlikely sources. And that is what happened on Saturday night as defender Kevin Alston and Jerry Bengtson scored to help New England beat the Houston Dynamo 2-0.

The win moved New England up to fifth place in the east with a 2-3-1 record, while Houston fell to seventh with a 2-3 record.

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.


thefort2A season high crowd of 21,297 saw the New England Revolution draw with the Houston Dynamo.

It was a result that did nothing for the Revs playoff hopes.
With four games left New England are in sixth place with 41 points, leaving them one point out of the playoffs with four games to go.

With three of the next four games away from home (New York, Montreal, and Columbus) making the playoffs will be extremely difficult for New England now.


sene_revolutionThe New England Revolution lost 2-1 at home to the Houston Dynamo tonight in front of 14,357 fans at Gillette Stadium.

Heading into this game the New England Revolution trailed Houston by two points for the final playoff spot in the east. So a win was vital for NE, if their hopes of reaching the playoffs the season were to be realized.

Jay Heaps went with the same line-up that beat San Jose 2-0 a week ago. That meant that once again that there was no palce on the bench for Jerry Bengston or Kalifa Cisse. Are their days in New England numbered?


DiegoThe New England Revolution shocked the Houston Dynamo 2-0 in Houston last night.  Diego Fagundez put the Revs in front early in the second half before an own-goal from Ricardo Clark in the 84th minute sealed the home team’s fate.

The result gives Houston (6-4-2) back-to-back home losses for the first time since losing three in a row in 2010 and leaves them on 20 points while New England (3-4-4) now have 13 on the season.


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 MLSSoccer.com 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.
