2007 MLS Teams & Their All Time Ranks
|I plan on having a more detailed post in near future detailing the 2007 performances in comparison to last year's. But for now see how each team stacked up in the all time rankings:|
Overall refers to points per game (shootouts as draws). Franchise rank uses that as well.
This is out of 135 team seasons. Houston had the best defense of all time, while Toronto had the worst offense ever. Today's offenses will look worse because of fewer goals being scored in comparison to the first few years. However it does make the defenses look better. I've been meaning to adjust the numbers to better compare every season; I'll do that eventually.
RSL and Toronto are 9th and 7th worst teams all time respectively, while DC makes the top ten as one of the best teams.
Also, for the first time ever 5 teams missed the playoffs. CLB was the best team to miss out, but they're only the 6th best team to not make it all time (#1 is 2005 KC). The worst team ever to make the playoffs? 1999 Miami Fusion. They had the equivalent of an 8-15-9 record. 1998 Miami is #2, while the 2004 Revs are third.
