Recapping The Rankings: A Road Shutout

Zach Loyd had a monster outing on Saturday. - USA TODAY Sports

Scoreless draw on the road puts FCD where in the rankings......?

FCD came out and was thoroughly outplayed in Montreal by the Impact on Saturday. The fact that they managed to hold on and salvage a point was good enough for me, but it is clear that they have some midfield and finishing woes at the moment. Were the rankings kind to FCD for the road point, or did they bash them for their continuous woes?

Rank: 11 (last week 11)

Comment: All things considered, a point on the road is a good result for a team that's trying desperately to hang on in the playoff race. But there's this: They haven't scored a single goal since June. Crisis.

Rank: 13 (last week 12)

Comment: George John's return helped Dallas secure a much-needed road point at Montreal. And while FCD was missing some speedier elements, it seems reasonable to expect more offense from a lineup featuring David Ferreira, Kenny Cooper and Eric Hassli.

Rank: 10 (last week 10)

Comment: Center back anchor George John returned following a four-game absence and helped FC Dallas to a 0-0 draw against Montreal, but the club remains winless since May 25, a stretch of eight games. That streak will linger on past the MLS All-Star Game, as FCD does not play another league game until an Aug. 3 date against the Seattle Sounders that kicks off a run of seven games in a row against Western Conference competition.
