Time to quickly put week six to rest as week seven starts tomorrow with another fairly full slate of games in the midweek with half of the league in action.

There was some usual movement in this week’s rankings but the top and bottom pretty much remained the same. The middle is still a mess but clubs like San Jose are starting to impress a little bit each week.

Feel free as always to leave your rankings and thoughts below in the comments section.

Team Rank Record (W-L-T) Comments
1 (1) 5-0-1 16 pts. You can’t stop Edson Buddle (nine goals, one assist), you can only hope to contain him.
2 (2) 2-0-2 8 pts. Not the worst showing in Seattle but not the best. The Crew still feel like a stronger side than what they are showing here.
3 (4) 5-1-0 15 pts. I’ve been wrong before about a club, guess I’m wrong about this one even though they’ve beat three of the worst clubs in the league and lost to a so-so Chivas club.
4 (9) 3-2-1 10 pts. No Ricardo Clark, Stuart Holden, Brian Ching, and Geoff Cameron. Hell, no problem for Dominic Kinnear who even got Luis Angel Landin to actually look like a DP.
5 (3) 2-2-1 7 pts. You’re not gonna win in Houston when you play down a man. But the 3-0 loss did provide some good insight to this club.
6 (7) 2-2-3 9 pts. Starting to think there could actually be a sophomore slump here now that they’ve only gotten seven points in nine games.
7 (5) 3-2-1 10 pts. The possession is there but its going no where up top. Maybe this new and improved midfield doesn’t fit the style of play for Omar Cummings and Conor Casey.
8 (13) 3-2-0 9 pts. Nearly moved them higher up here but couldn’t do it. They’re winning…and winning ugly. Still its amazing what happens when Ramiro Corrales (left-back) and Bobby Convey (left mid) are in their natural positions for a change. Only took Frank Yallop a year or so to figure it out.
9 (6) 2-2-2 8 pts. Another blunder of a home game for the Fire.
10 (10) 2-3-1 7 pts. Four game winless streak snapped just like that at home. This issue over them giving up so many PKs is starting to grow.
11 (8) 2-3-1 7 pts. Down two men and still got a draw doesn’t sound so bad after all.
12 (11) 2-3-1 7 pts. Quality result on the road in Chicago. This young midfield of their’s is starting to grow on me too.
13 (12) 2-4-0 6 pts. Preki continues to tinker with his lineup but not starting Dwayne De Rosario was probably not the best of moves for him to make at Rio Tinto Stadium.
14 (15) 0-1-4 4 pts. They’ll get a positive result evenutally here, at least they know D.C. comes into town this weekend.
15 (14) 1-4-0 3 pts. We know they’re young but Peter Nowak has to do something about all these red cards.
16 (16) 0-5-0 0 pts. So that summer transfer window couldn’t open soon enough huh?
