Power Rankings Round-Up: Week 21

By Beth Anne Carroll

FC Dallas’ winless streak continued with a 0-0 stalemate in Montreal on Saturday. Despite the draw on a tough road trip, the team didn’t see much positive movement in this week’s power rankings.

Yahoo Sports moved FC Dallas down to #10:

Earning a draw at Montreal would normally be a good result, but Dallas really need to locate a win. Talk about a July to forget. 

FC Dallas remained number 11 according to MLSsoccer.com:

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.

Avi Creditor of SportsIllustrated.com left FC Dallas in the #10 spot:

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. 

Pro Soccer Talk also put FC Dallas in the 10th spot: 

Speaking of Stoke City, they move from South Texas up I-45 to suburban Dallas for a meeting with Schellas Hyndman’s team over the weekend.

ESPN FC dropped FCD one spot to number 13:

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.

Finally, Soccer America moved FC Dallas down three to #10.
