MLS Standings Updated 2012: Chicago Fire Languishing In Fourth

The Chicago Fire are currently stuck in neutral right now, unable to shake themselves from fourth place in the MLS' Eastern Conference, and losing on an own goal certainly hasn't helped matters. Through about a third of the season, the Fire have 15 points which is good for fourth, but they're closer to the ninth place Philadelphia Union (eight points) than they are the first place New York Red Bulls (25 points)

Here's how the Eastern Conference has shaped up through May 21:

  1. New York Red Bulls, 25 points
  2. DC United, 24 points
  3. Sporting Kansas City, 22 points
  4. Chicago Fire, 15 points
  5. New England Revolution, 13 points
  6. Houston Dynamo, 13 points
  7. Columbus Crew, 12 points
  8. Montreal Impact, 12 points
  9. Philadelphia Union, 8 points
  10. Toronto FC, 0 points
