The unknown voters behind the MLS Power Rankings kept FC Dallas at No. 13 in the Week 26 rankings after a 1-1 draw to Seattle at home on Sunday. Here's what the voters had to say:
 
A win over the Sounders sure would have been nice, but a draw at least keeps them in the hunt. No question that they'll have to get the full three points against Vancouver when the 'Caps come to town on Sept. 15, the next game for both teams. Anything less than a win, and the Western Conference playoff race is over.

The mysterious voters behind the MLS Power Rankings dropped FC Dallas three spots this week to No. 13 in the Week 25 rankings after a 2-0 loss on the road to the LA Galaxy. Here's what the voters had to say:
 
Brutal loss to LA may very well have put the postseason out of reach. FCD have six games left and probably need to win at least four of them to have a realistic hope at making the playoffs. Won't be easy, especially with red-hot Seattle coming to town this weekend. But at least they have all their pieces back and healthy for the first time ever.

FRISCO – This week’s preparations by FC Dallas for its key match at the LA Galaxy (6 p.m. Sunday on NBC Sports Network) included a first for head coach Schellas Hyndman.

Hyndman and his staff usually analyze the most recent two or three matches of teams they are about to play. But the anemic showing of FC Dallas in a 0-1 loss on July 28 at home against the Galaxy meant that match video was broken down during the week.

It’s an uncommon move according to the coach, who said it’s “the first time since I’ve been here” the staff reached back for a specific match to scout rather than only look at a team’s most recent form.

“They will come back out and pressure us again,” Hyndman said. “Whether Donovan is on the field or Beckham is on the field, I think the whole mentality is ‘Look, this is a team who didn’t handle our pressure well, let’s go out and pressure them again’,” Hyndman said.

In addition to the pressure, Hyndman said that July match was the first time in 2012 he felt FC Dallas was outworked.

“For us it was a disappointing result, but at the same time it was an unusual, uncharacteristic effort on our part,” Hyndman said.

FRISCO – The LA Galaxy begin CONCACAF Champions League play tonight and there will be more than a few interested observers in Dallas.

“Of course I’ll be watching,” said head coach Schellas Hyndman. “I’ve encouraged all our players to watch.”

LA faces Isidro Metapan from El Salvador tonight at the Home Depot Center in opening round CCL play (9 p.m. CT on Fox Soccer). On Sunday, FC Dallas will be in California for a crucial match against the Galaxy for FC Dallas’ playoff hopes (6 p.m. CT on NBC Sports Network).

But Hyndman doesn’t think there will be any type of advantage for FCD with the quick turnaround for LA.

“When CCL really takes effect is after they’ve been traveling for three or four games, adding on MLS games, traveling from one country to another country and then turning around and playing a game. I think then you’ll start to see the wear and tear,” Hyndman said.
