Recapping The Rankings: Winless factor

FC Dallas is slumping in the rankings for the first time in a long time....

Chin up, Raul!
Chin up, Raul!

A tough go-around with the two Los Angeles franchises has FC Dallas on its heels and falling in the rankings league-wide. The general consensus is that Dallas is no longer a top five MLS team. Let's take a look.

Rank: 7 (last week 4)

Comment: Since mid-April, the only teams they have beaten are D.C. and San Jose. They're lucky they're not lower.

Rank: 8 (last week 5)

Comment: All of a sudden, FCD finds itself with a six-game winless streak after a disappointing home draw with Chivas USA and a road defeat to the Galaxy. The panic button isn't being pressed, but the defense has looked a bit fragile of late.

Rank: 5 (last week 3)

Comment: Unable to defeat Chivas at home. Thoroughly beaten by LA. Dallas have had better weeks this season.

Soccer America

Rank: 5 (last week 3)

Comment: FC Dallas struggled through a rough week, tying Chivas USA, 0-0 at home, and falling, 2-0, to the Galaxy at StubHub Center. It is winless in the last six games.

Rank: 8 (last week 4)

Comment: Recent results suggest that FCD may need further reinforcements during the summer window.
