MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729847 Wanted man Wanted+man MLS

Former United States international winger Robbie Rogers is a man in demand. He trained with the Los Angeles Galaxy on Tuesday. Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said he wants his ex-winger to join him in the Pacific Northwest. Chicago boss Frank Klopas expressed interest yet again and noted his side holds Rogers' MLS rights after a trade with Columbus earlier this year.

 

If Rogers decides he wants to conclude his recent retirement, he will have no shortage of suitors. The only decisions left for him: whether he wants to play again and where he would prefer to do so.

 

Honorable Mention
11. Philadelphia Union
12. San Jose Earthquakes
13. Vancouver Whitecaps
14. Colorado Rapids
15. Seattle Sounders
16. New England Revolution
17. Chicago Fire
18. Toronto FC
19. D.C. United

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729848 Los Angeles Galaxy Los+Angeles+Galaxy MLS

No team churns out results quite like the MLS Cup holders do. Bruce Arena's tattered squad traveled to Real Salt Lake without Landon Donovan, Todd Dunivant and Robbie Keane last weekend. It returned home with a 2-0 victory. Not bad for a group expected to struggle without its key figures.

 

Next on the docket: Arena and his players will attempt to claim a third straight victory when Houston visits on Sunday.

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729849 FC Dallas FC+Dallas MLS

FCD coach Schellas Hyndman will learn plenty about his depth over the next week or so. Jackson cannot feature against Portland next Wednesday after receiving a red card in the 2-2 draw at Vancouver. Three other starters – Matt Hedges (groin), Andrew Jacobson (hamstring) and George John (knee) – are also carrying knocks.

 

Next on the docket: FCD will attempt to extend its unbeaten run to eight matches when the Timbers visit on Wednesday.

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729850 Montréal Impact Montr%26eacute%3Bal+Impact MLS

The defeat at Sporting Kansas City proved just a temporary blip on the radar for one of the league's most surprising teams. Montréal extended its unbeaten run to two matches with a straightforward 2-0 victory over Chicago last weekend. Impact manager Marco Schällibaum will have to manage his veteran squad carefully with a dearth of bye weeks remaining, but this group appears poised to keep its current run going if it can sidestep untimely injury concerns.

 

Next on the docket: Montréal will attempt to maintain its perch atop the Eastern Conference with a victory at San Jose on Saturday.

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729851 Houston Dynamo Houston+Dynamo MLS

One of the league's most reliable sides made news off the field this week: it announced that former midfielder Geoff Cameron would return to town with Stoke City for a friendly at BBVA Compass Stadium on July 24. The ex-Dynamo midfielder now features regularly in the Premier League after he concluded a glittering MLS career last year.

 

Next on the docket: Houston will take the field without Cameron and without the suspended Brad Davis when it travels to Los Angeles on Sunday.

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729852 Portland Timbers Portland+Timbers MLS

Portland's high pressure met Sporting's high pressure in Kansas City on Saturday. Good news for the Timbers: their high pressure ruled the day. The 3-2 triumph at Sporting Park offered yet another sign of the substantial growth within the ranks under first-year coach Caleb Porter.

 

Next on the docket: Porter will aim to extend his side's unbeaten run to seven matches with a result against New England on Thursday.

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729853 Sporting KC Sporting+KC MLS

Chance Myers picked the wrong game to score twice. The fullback opened his MLS account, but his teammates could not find a way to prevent Portland from snatching a 3-2 victory at Sporting Park on Saturday. Perhaps Myers will receive a bit more support the next time he decides to contribute at the sharp end.

 

Next on the docket: Myers and his teammates will attempt to subdue Chivas USA on Sunday.

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729854 Columbus Crew Columbus+Crew MLS

Forget about the 3-0 victory over D.C. United on Saturday. The real story came before the teams took the field at Crew Stadium. Why? Fire engulfed a portion of the scoreboard in the buildup to the match. Not even an emphatic home victory can overshadow fire trucks and flames.

 

Next on the docket: Columbus will attempt to avoid engaging the services of the local fire department when New York visits on Saturday.

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729855 Real Salt Lake Real+Salt+Lake MLS

The team is supposedly the star in Utah, but that theory will come under scrutiny with striker Álvaro Saborío ruled out through injury. The Costa Rican international will miss the next several weeks with a quadriceps complaint, RSL coach Jason Kreis told the Salt Lake Tribune on Tuesday. His absence leaves the Claret-and-Cobalt with some work to do to replace his production (three of the side's seven goals this season) and his work as a target man.

 

Next on the docket: RSL must try to conjure up some precision in front of goal when Vancouver visits Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday night.

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729856 Chivas USA Chivas+USA MLS

Leave it to Red-and-White manager José Luis Sánchez Solá to keep things interesting. The man known as El Chelís always entertains with his outlandish proclamations and his adventurous team selections. For better or for worse, his players aren't equipped to slog out a boring match. Consider the 2-2 home draw with San Jose on Saturday as just the latest instance in an enthralling trend.

 

Next on the docket: Chelís will ask his players to cope with the high pressure exerted by Sporting Kansas City on Sunday.

MLS 195 2341 MLS Power Rankings: Week Nine 31729857 New York Red Bulls New+York+Red+Bulls MLS

Juninho Pernambucano returns from a two-match ban this week, but he may not slide straight back into the team. In his stead, the Red Bulls have looked more coherent and more incisive than they have for much of the season. New York coach Mike Petke will have to think long and hard about whether he wants to alter a side that has scored six goals in its past two (winning) outings.

 

Next on the docket: The former Brazilian international midfielder must wait to see whether he reclaims his spot in the starting XI for Saturday's visit to Columbus.
