The mysterious panel of voters who determine the MLS Power Rankings finally came to their senses this week. After having FCD ranked No. 11 during the preseason, the club jumped six spots (largest move of the week) to No. 5 in the Week One rankings. Here's what they had to say:
70 minutes of comprehensive dominance followed by 20 minutes of holding on for dear life. That’s probably not the way that Schellas Hyndman drew it up, but it was good enough for three points against New York. They’ll need to be more clinical to stay with the West's heavies, though.
