Two Weeks in a Row! The Seattle Sounders are #1! Major League Soccer Power Rankings Week 18, 7/18/11

Seattle is #1 For The Second Week in a Row!

My top three teams from last week's Power Rankings didn't change this week, with the Seattle Sounders maintaining the top spot for a second week in a row.

The bottom five teams also didn't change, although there was a slight reordering, mostly due to the Portland Timbers winning at Chicago.

The biggest change happened in positions 4 through 13, as Major League Soccer continues to show it is a league defined by parity.

Biggest moves up the rankings this week? The Portland Timbers moved up 4 spots, DC United moved up 3. 

Biggest drop? The Houston Dynamo dropped 4 spots.

Who has the best current form? The Seattle Sounders, Columbus Crew and FC Dallas.

The worst? Toronto, Chicago, New England and Vancouver.
