MLS Power Poll Week 3

Last week Houston got all ten first place votes. This week we had nine voters, and five different first place teams on ballots. An interesting shake up in the poll finds Red Bull New York closing in on the top. Quite honestly if it were not for two voters (one was yours truly) Red Bull would be ahead of Chivas and Houston in second. I remain unconvinced that RBNY can play well away from home. I still believe by year’s end FC Dallas will be the best team. They are very young and have some adjusting to do with Steve Morrow’s new attacking system, but they got a nice win yesterday. Chivas USA is an unspectacular but extremely solid team, that I expect to be near the top of this poll every week. They were my first place choice this week.

1- Chicago (3)
2- Houston (1)
3- Chivas USA (2)
4- Red Bull New York (2)
5- FC Dallas (1)
6- Colorado
7- DC United
8- New England
9- Kansas City
10- Columbus
11- LA Galaxy
12- Real Salt Lake
13- Toronto
