Best MLS Teams of the First 25 Years: #17 2016 FC Dallas

The best season in Dallas history, one that saw two trophies find homes in Frisco, will always have a big question mark at the end of it. What if Mauro Diaz had not torn his Achilles tendon in the 89th minute of the season's 33rd match against Seattle? The Best XI midfielder missed the playoffs that saw those same Sounders defeat Dallas in the conference semifinals. That question mark does not take away from a double-winning season with the Supporters' Shield and Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup ending up in the hands of the club. It was Oscar Pareja's finest season with the club, leading his team to a 24-9-12 mark in all competitions. Diaz's 13 assists in league play stand out alongside 9 goals eac

Best MLS Teams of the First 25 Years: #18 DC United

As the first champions of the league, the inaugural DC United squad holds a special place in MLS history. They won eleven of their final fourteen matches in the regular season and playoffs in regulation to storm to the title. They also did the double in their first year, winning the U.S. Open Cup over Rochester at their home base of RFK Stadium. They did not look like champions in the beginning, losing five of their first six matches and Bruce Arena conducted a roster overhaul on the fly. Steve Rammel and Tony Sanneh were added from the lower divisions early on, and Bolivian international Jaime Moreno joined in the summer. Raul Diaz Arce led the team with 23 goals in the season (second in
