MLS Power Rankings : Week 1

Welcome to the American Soccer Show MLS Power Rankings for 2008. This is the week one rankings.

1- DC United

The two time defending supporters shield winners look for international glory this year in the CONCACAF Champions Cup.

2- Houston

The two time defending MLS Cup Champions remain fairly intact and primed for another title run.

3- New England

Losing Pat Noonan hurts, but Steve Nicol and Paul Mariner understand how to locate cheap American talent

4- Chivas USA

Re-signing Panchito Mendoza was critical.

5- Kansas City

Claudio Lopez is about three times the player Eddie Johnson was.

6- Chicago

Dennis Hamlet has a good squad to choose from, but besides Blanco no standout players.

7- FC Dallas

Duilio Davino is a nice signing, but losing Carlos Ruiz leaves a big hole up front

8- LA Galaxy

The defense is a big concern, but scoring goals shouldn’t be a problem.

9- Real Salt Lake

I’m high on this team with its Argentine contingent leading the way.

10- Columbus

Boy would Zurawski have helped this side. Sigi Schmid better figure something out quickly.

11- NY Red Bulls

Osorio may be a crack manager but this teams squad stinks especially with Dane Richards out for several months. Angel cannot do it alone.

12- Colorado

Maybe Christian Gomez can turn this struggling franchise around

13- San Jose

Believe it or not, acquiring Ronnie O’Brien and Nick Garcia could really help Frank Yallop’s team compete at a higher level than expected.

14- Toronto

For those who compare MLS to the lower divisions of English Football this team is proof positive of where MLS really rates when compared to England’s lower leagues.
