WEEK 4 MLS POWER RANKINGS

- April 2nd, 2012

1 Kansas City (2) – Perfect … next three will show us KC’s true colours – L.A., RSL and unbeaten Vancouver awaits
2 Salt Lake (1) – Character statement in Portland … fighting back to bag two at the death can make a season
3  Seattle (3)  - Supporters shouldn’t be worried, a very poor decision punished the Sounders Saturday
4  Vancouver (7) – Doubts as to if Caps are fourth best, but they’ve earned the benefit of the doubt.
5  San Jose (8) – Get over it, this is a playoff team … two big road wins, no matter how they came, speaks volumes
6 Portland (6) – Unlucky vs. RSL … considering a big win over Philly and a good result in Dallas, sixth is about right
7 New York (9) – What do wins over an undermanned Rapids and an expansion team actually mean?
8 Colorado (10) – Mastroeni’s concussion makes Larentowiz even bigger … good bounce back vs. a decent Fire side
9  Houston (11) – Don’t play again until April 15 … Crazy bye week props them up a few positions after decent start
10 Dallas (5) – Still missing players … consecutive road tests not cause for concern
11 L.A. (4) – Is David upset? … losing 3-1 on national TV? … no choice but to drop down the rankings
12 Columbus (13) – Executed defensive game plan to perfection at BMO Field … this club will struggle at some point
13 New England (14) – Have been saying they’re decent for weeks … all this without Feilhaber
14 Chicago (12)  - Dropped points in Colorado … lost its shape in the second half … will be on the bubble all season
15 DC United (16) – Big bounce back drubbing Dallas … lucky not to have had a man sent off
16 Philadelphia (15) – Deserved more from Vancouver … Draw with Whitecaps left TFC as the only pointless club
17 Chivas (17) – Win over RSL keeps it above TFC … Like Toronto, devastating results at home to start 2012
18 Toronto (18) – Was good for 80 minutes in 1-0 loss … difficult to climb the table when 0-3-0 … must-win in MTL?
19 Montreal (19) – Horrible decision on the penalty … what about the other four goals? … big derby Saturday
