Best & Worst MLS Teams (Single Season & Multiple)

This post is now up to date through the 2009 regular season.

This is a ranking of which teams are the best and worst in MLS history over 1 season, 2 seasons, 3 seasons, and so on. I counted all shootouts (1996-99) as draws. Teams are ranked by PPG, followed by goal differential per game and goals scored per game to break any ties.

Only regular season results are counted. If you're interested in an All Competitions PPG, then click that link (to be updated once the 2009 playoffs are over).

Only consecutive seasons are counted, which is why SJ's 2005 isn't linked to 2008 in any of the categories.

Changes from last year:
  • Chicago barely (0.002) becomes the best MLS team over 12 seasons, replacing LA 1996-2007.
  • NY's poor 2009 means that they took over a few of the longer season records. They already held the 12 and 13 season records. However, the 11 year record that they took over was previously held by NE 1996-2006.
  • NE also lost the mark for worst five-season record to RSL (previously it was NE 1997-2001).
  • RSL keeps paying for their awful first season, and they still have yet to enjoy a winning record despite two straight playoff appearances. They'll need 45 points next year to avoid becoming the worst team over 6 years.
  • If any Crew fans are wondering what the odds are of becoming the best team over 3 years in 2010, they're very slim. CLB would need 63 points to do it, which would be two wins better than last year's team (already one of the top ten all time).

Who cares about these stats. You should only care about this year. Stats are for losers!

Another great post. Thanks.

Mr. anonymous, you are reading the wrong blog. I'm sure there's a universe of pop culture blogs you'll find more interesting.

Sounds like a Metro fan! ;)

Nice post, and nice to see that the Tampa Bay Mutiny will most likely not be forgotten in the near future do to that horrific stat.

"I wonder if the attendance situation would be different now if NE and NY were decent for their first four seasons instead of being on this list?"

New England's better years attendance wise was when they were at the bottom of the league, and their more recent years have drawn poorly when the team is much better.

Likewise with New York

Lots of great statistical work. Well done. Thanks!

As others have said, great work ...

1. RSL needs a total of 47 points this season to escape having the worst four-year record in league history ... with 13 games to go, it still needs 24 more. That's difficult but possible.

2. Chicago is in its 11th season and is on course for the second-best 11-year run in league history ... after 12 seasons, there's a good chance it'll be in first.

3. Here are the best teams over the most recent X years (thru 07):
Last 12 years: LA by 12 pts over DC
Last 11 years: LA by 8 over DC
Last 10 years: Chicago by 6 over LA
Last 9 years: Chicago by 19 over LA
Last 8 years: Chicago by 24 over LA
Last 7 years: Chicago by 9 over DC
Last 6: DC by 4 over NE
Last 5: DC by 10 over NE
Last 4: DC by 16 over NE
Last 3: DC by 7 over NE
Last 2: DC by 12 over NE & Houston
Last 1: DC by 2 over Chivas

This season, New England may gain enough points on DC to crack first place in a few of these categories.

4: And the worst:
Last 12 years: NY 3 pts behind Color
Last 11: NY 11 behind Color
Last 10: NY 4 behind KC
Last 9: NY/Color tie
Last 8: Color 5 behind Colum
Last 7: Color 10 behind Colum
Last 6: Colum 12 behind Color
Last 5: Colum 2 behind LA
Last 4: Colum 4 behind LA
Last 3: RSL 22 behind Colum
Last 2: RSL 4 behind Colum
Last 1: TFC 2 behind RSL

Interesting to see that LA could fall into last place over a stretch of several years.

How about re-doing the best single seasons with playoff games included? My guess is that the 2008 Columbus team will be near the top when you figure that the teams above them on this list lost in the playoffs.

I believe I posted the top seasons for all competitive games before. I'll have to revisit that.
