Lack of August USMNT Friendly Marks End of Idiotic Era

Lack of August USMNT Friendly Marks End of Idiotic Era

Tweet Jon Levy There’s no US Men’s National Team match this week, and I’m absolutely overjoyed about it! Am I still burnt out from the World Cup? As a writer? As a fan? No and nope and nuh-uh. In fact, it’s already been a great week for the USMNT. The right back of the future, […]

Why Pep Guardiola Wouldn’t Be Too Surprised By His Bad Night In Portland If He Was A TYAC Reader

Tweet Jon Levy 1. We say it all the time, the MLS is a fast and physical league, that’s probably its biggest single strength right now. Y’know what fast and physical means sometimes? Collisions. In games, in practices, and even in All-Star Games. Collisions sometimes so violent that they cause national team teammates to go […]

32 Players to Watch in Brazil: #17 Kevin Prince-Boateng

32 Players to Watch in Brazil: #17 Kevin Prince-Boateng

Tweet Jon Levy It’s been a while since we did a “Haters Gonna Hate” piece at TYAC. Years even. (We used to call these “Jackleg” pieces). But when you take four years off your national team, and then conveniently decide you love Ghana right before the World Cup, well- you’re asking for it. Landon couldn’t even get […]

TYAC’s US vs. Turkey Preview: Turks a Tactical Challenge

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon USA – Turkey: Your TYAC Preview Welcome to round two of the Send-Off Series, a round that should be a lot more telling than round one. Tuesday’s win over Azerbaijan was a good start, but it wasn’t exactly revelatory. The Yanks can score on set pieces, and Jurgen […]

USA vs. Azerbaijan: Tuesdays With Berti – Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy USA – Azerbaijan: Your TYAC Preview Welcome to the Send-off Series. And more than that, welcome to an incredibly strange, exciting, bittersweet, yet optimistic moment for US Soccer.
