It was a slow week in MLS as World Cup qualifiers had many teams taking time off during the international break. Those who played did so definitively, as the week passed without a single draw as a result.

FC Dallas staked their claim to remain on top of the rankings by dismantling a dreadfully bad road team in the Portland Timbers.

Certainly, things are not completely settled, especially with teams like New England being so schizophrenic. A few of the bottom teams found a way to get big results against big teams – showing signs of life? CLASS OF THE LEAGUE 1 (5)Real Salt Lake – I am taking a risk here, but my spidey sense is tingling that this group is coming together after missing Rimando, Beckerman, etc.

The Revolution have taken wins from defending champion Sporting Kansas City (2-0), uber-talented Toronto FC (2-1) and the Sounders (5-0) in consecutive weeks, and have gone unbeaten in their last five (4-0-1).

As we head toward the final month of the MLS regular season, the San Jose Earthquakes and Sporting Kansas City continue to set the pace in their respective conferences, but the LA Galaxy just might be rounding into the strongest team in the league.

The Earthquakes were thoroughly impressive in out-playing Seattle in Seattle last weekend to secure a win and hit the 60-point mark.

The San Jose Earthquakes continued to lead Major League Soccer as the steamroll toward an inevitable Supporters Shield, but they aren't the only team in the midst of a serious roll toward the pre-season.

The LA Galaxy pushed their unbeaten streak to five matches, posting their fourth shutout victory in five matches, with last Friday's victory against the Colorado Rapids.

Most teams did not play over the past week due to the international break which MLS mostly respected. In the past a team that didn't play stayed stable, while those that won would move past them. The past is gone. Sporting Kansas City took a tiny step up while the Seattle Sounders took a tiny step down in the SB Nation MLS Power Rankings.

The Columbus Crew are making some serious waves as the season reaches its most vital point on the calendar.

The Crew's second consecutive six-point week not only catapulted them into the Eastern Conference playoff picture, but also up a couple of spots to eighth in SBI's MLS Power Rankings as they brace for another match Wednesday night against sputtering New England.

"Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes

Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown."

As soccer continues it's "invasion" of American shores, I find it fit to pay tribute to the original British Invasion of the 1960s. Just like the Barclays Premier League, the Rolling Stones are synonymous with English culture.

With the MLS Cup Playoffs starting tonight (Chicago v Houston on NBC Sports at 6 PM Pacific) this is the final SBN MLS Cup Power Rankings. As usual we'll focus on how the Seattle Sounders and their pre-season rivals looked. Before we get into that though here's the reminder that San Jose is still number one and KC is number two (getting all but one vote at that place).

If you are tiring of the San Jose Earthquakes being at the top of the SB Nation MLS Power Rankings you aren't alone. You are also quite likely to be tired for a long time. The 'Quakes, like the Sounders, haven't lost back-to-back games this year. On top of that they have one of the best offenses in MLS history, pacing for 70 or so goals.

So a big win for the Chicago Fire on Sunday night, knocking off the Houston Dynamo 3-1 to move into sole possession of third place in the Eastern Conference standings.

Surely that would be enough to see the Men in Red leapfrog their orange rivals in the Week 25 MLS Power Rankings, right?

Well, apparently not.

The most notable aspect of the forthcoming SB Nation MLS Power Rankings is the ability to judge if people are paying attention to the league as a whole, late to make adjustments or just not believing that recent form matters. There are two teams that should show positive movement on this front (Crew, Dallas) and there are two teams that deserve negative movement off of recent form (Revolution and United).

Ah, Tuesdays.

Ah, power rankings.

As much as we pretend that they don't matter, that they don't affect us, that they're utterly irrelevant, the fact is, they mean something.

No, it doesn't matter as far as actual results go. The Chicago Fire are second place in the East; even if every soccer writer in the county argued that we weren't that good of a team, that fact would remain.

The Houston Dynamo were in a bit of a tailspin mode in recent weeks, having won just one of their past seven MLS matches, but a change in formation and a well-earned victory have Dom Kinnear's squad back on track and back in the top half of the SBI MLS Power Rankings.

The Dynamo reverted to their old 4-4-2 formation in their 2-0 victory against the New England Revolution and the shift away from the 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2 produce the kind of performance Houston will need to solidify their hold on a playoff spot in the East.
