July didn’t really start with a bang for FC Dallas. Schellas Hyndman’s men started the month with a draw against Chivas USA on the Fourth of July then lost on the road to LA. The disappointing start was reflected in this week’s power rankings, as FCD fell almost entirely out of the top five they had become so used to.
FC Dallas dropped two spots in Yahoo Sports’ rankings, but stayed in the top five:
Unable to defeat Chivas at home. Thoroughly beaten by LA. Dallas have had better weeks this season.
ESPN FC dropped FC Dallas all the way to number 8:
All of a sudden, FCD finds itself with a six-game winless streak after a disappointing home draw with Chivas USA and a road defeat to the Galaxy. The panic button isn't being pressed, but the defense has looked a bit fragile of late.
MLSsoccer.com bumped FCD three spot to seventh:
Since mid-April, the only teams they've beaten are D.C. and San Jose. They're lucky they're not lower.
Goal.com moved FC Dallas down to number eight:
Recent results suggest that FCD may need further reinforcements during the summer window.
