32 Players to Watch: #30 Joe Hart

32 Players to Watch: #30 Joe Hart

Tweet Jon Levy We continue our 32 Players to Watch at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil feature with a look at the man tasked with handling one of the long forlorn and angst-ridden positions in the global game: English goalkeeper. If you need a refresher about how these pieces work before you read […]

USA vs. Mexico- Never A Friendly: Your TYAC Preview

USA vs. Mexico- Never A Friendly: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy A (late) Wednesday night in the middle of the week after March Madness has morphed into the far less chaotic Final Four seems like the perfect time for a good old fashioned MLS All-Stars versus Liga MX All-Stars bloodbath. Throw in a side of what could be a debut for US Soccer’s […]

USA vs. South Korea: Highway to Brazil Is Alive Tonight- Your TYAC Preview

USA vs. South Korea: Highway to Brazil Is Alive Tonight- Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy After the last couple weeks Yanks should be more than ready for a very interesting match with a young and relatively untested South Korea squad. But after the last week of matches, these young Korean players should be as ready as they can possibly be for the USMNT challenge. While Klinsmann and […]

Being an Eddie Johnson Fan: One Writer's Journey

Being an Eddie Johnson Fan: One Writer’s Journey

Tweet Jon Levy Hello, my name is Jon Levy and I’m an Eddie Johnson fan. It’s weird to see that I’ve typed those words, but they’re true. I’m a Washington DC resident and a DC United fan, and when the black-and-red sealed a trade of allocation cash for the USMNT forward, well, I fist pumped […]

US Men Close Special 2013 with Austria Match in Vienna: Your TYAC Preview

US Men Close Special 2013 with Austria Match in Vienna: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy As we noted in our postgame wrap, the United States played a dull, scoreless draw against Scotland Friday on a glum November day in Glasgow– not exactly the type of performance American fans were hoping for as the US turn the final stretch and head into a World Cup year. In the […]

US-Scotland: World Cup Tuneups Begin in Glasgow: TYAC Preview

US-Scotland: World Cup Tuneups Begin in Glasgow: TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy Scotland – USA International Friendly: Your TYAC Preview Jurgen Klinsmann called up a group for the November friendlies full of World Cup locks and “fringe finalists”, and Garrett McInnis was correct to write on this website earlier in the week that “not a single one of these players is incapable of making it onto […]

US 3, Panama 2: The Return of TYAC Player Ratings

US 3, Panama 2: The Return of TYAC Player Ratings

Tweet Jon Levy Wow. Just wow. Tuesday night was utter chaos. Absolute CONCACAF pandemonium. Of course we saved Mexico’s skin; on a night like that it really couldn’t happen any other way. Now is our time for reflection. Time to bask in the afterglow of two stoppage time goals to win a CONCACAF road game. […]

US Close Out Long Qualifying Journey in Panama: Your TYAC Preview

US Close Out Long Qualifying Journey in Panama: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy It’s been a wild ride, but your team has done it. World Cup spot secured. CONCACAF conquered once again, and just three months out from the Gold Cup Final victory over Panama in Chicago. Columbus. Chicago. KC. The Midwest is good to the US Men’s National Team. Now, rather than drone on […]

Finish Strong: US Look To Keep Momentum Going vs. Jamaica: TYAC Preview

Finish Strong: US Look To Keep Momentum Going vs. Jamaica: TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy  Editor’s Note: The original preview was written before the (now classic) late-minute additions made by Jurgen Klinsmann. We have updated the preview to reflect those changes. If you have not heard: Eddie Johnson is out. Clarence Goodson, Chris Wondolowski and Brad Davis are in. Enjoy. No Dempsey. No Bradley. No problem? The […]

Three Points in Oh-Hi-O: TYAC Official USA-Mexico Preview

Three Points in Oh-Hi-O: TYAC Official USA-Mexico Preview

Tweet   Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon  COLUMBUS, OH It is dangerous, in high level soccer circles, to discuss Michael Bradley, the Roma midfielder/US heartbeat who was injured, freakishly, we presume, in the pre-match warmup Friday night in San Jose, Costa Rica. Yes, Bradley is a good and influential player, but how good? He’s […]

US Face Costa Rica Team Primed for Revenge Friday Night: Your TYAC Preview

US Face Costa Rica Team Primed for Revenge Friday Night: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon Both teams enter this game with nightmares of earlier encounters dancing through their heads. Thankfully, those wounds are much fresher for the Costa Ricans. Just five months ago Costa Rica lost one-nil to a reeling USMNT team in a Colorado blizzard. That game has since been dubbed the […]

Soccer and The SEC: SEC Football Teams and Companion Soccer Clubs, Part I: The SEC West

Soccer and The SEC: SEC Football Teams and Companion Soccer Clubs, Part I: The SEC West

Tweet Jon Levy Earlier this year, right around Super Bowl time, we here at The Yanks Are Coming indulged a little bit. We took a couple posts off from making Pulp Fiction references about the US Men’s National Team, and instead made Pulp Fiction references about the National Football League and each team’s “companion soccer […]
