Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont...
By the way, luft doesn't translate to red. Luft is air but red apparently sounded better.
1. New England (10-4-3). Will jump right back into the fray against its most difficult opponent on Saturday...
2. Chicago (8-5-5)... as Fire will visit New England, with Cuauhtemoc Blanco back from one-match ban.
3. DC United (8-8-1). No, he wasn't exactly Iker Casillas but Zach Wells got his first shutout of the year.
4. Columbus (9-6-4). Three points total from two western venues may not be such a bad thing.
5. Real Salt Lake (7-6-6). In solid footing out west; one of few Western clubs who can say that.
6. Houston (6-4-8). Brad Davis' goal was sublime. Brian Ching's wasnt, but at least he put it in back of net.
7. FC Dallas (6-6-7). Every time Cooper scores, the back of the net makes a sound similar to a cash register.
8. Chivas USA (6-7-4). Good news is, Maykel Galindo and Alecko Eskandarian both played on Saturday.
9. Los Angeles (6-8-5). With this defense, Galaxy needs to score four goals a game to have a shot of winning.
10. Toronto FC (6-7-5). Stick a fork in TFC if they can't win at BMO Field.
11. Kansas City (5-6-7). Wasn't Claudio Lopez supposed to score goals for KC? Wasn't that part of the deal?
12. Colorado (6-9-3). Have both must-win and sure-win next week as Toronto FC visits DSG Park.
13. San Jose (4-9-6). 'Quakes didn't look like an expansion team on Sunday.
14. New York (5-6-7). Red Bulls took week off to prepare for an ass-kicking from Barcelona.
