1- New England
Coming from a two goal deficit late to salvage a draw shows the character of a winner.
A week off and a week to focus on the possibility of brining in Brian McBride. But do you really want to upset the chemistry of this side right now?
3- Toronto FC
TFC was missing arguably its three most important players and yet they still were able to handle the Galaxy, who of course were without David Beckham and Landon Donovan
The Dynamo don’t wear the Scudetto on their jersey for no reason.
5- Chivas USA
Is any team more exciting to watch than Chivas the past few weeks. Jorge Flores, the original Sueno MLS winner has to be considered for the national team pool.
Tam MacManus had never been to the US when he met up with the Rapids during training camp in London a few months back. It seems he had little adjustment period necessary to feel very comfortable and become the game changing striker the Rapids needed.
7- LA Galaxy
The Galaxy are in this position more out of default than anything. Is the East really that much better than the West? It doesn’t appear so.
8- NY Red Bulls
This club always gives their opponent a game regardless of how out matched they are.
300 or so scoreless minutes. Robbie Rogers and Eddie Gaven are beginning to once again show us why we had no confidence in them for the longest time.
10- Real Salt Lake
RSL still doesn’t look as good as they should given the talent level. But their home form is keeping them alive.
11- Kansas City
This side simply isn’t athletic or talented enough to keep pace with the league.
12- San Jose
Last in the table and without Kei Kamara and Ivan Guerrero for a while thanks to MLS scheduling policies. But the Quakes to me still are far from the worst team in the league. Let’s just say they pass the eye test that others fail.
13- FC Dallas
This club is a mess as evidenced not only by the play on the pitch but the apparent bumbling of a coaching search.
14- DC United
Coughing up a two goal lead late and then playing for a draw is the sign of a team with a losing mentality. Quite shocking from MLS’ signature franchise.
