Unblemished: US Women Handle Brazil in Orlando to Cap Unbeaten 2013

Unblemished: US Women Handle Brazil in Orlando to Cap Unbeaten 2013

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon ORLANDO, FL– As high as the standard of excellence is for the US Women’s National Team, undefeated years don’t come along that often. The last year the American women completed without defeat was 2006. Until Sunday. Less than two weeks after winning a vote to get a soccer-specific stadium in Orlando, […]

2012 Men's Olympic Tournament: Five Teams to Watch, and Why It Matters

2012 Men’s Olympic Tournament: Five Teams to Watch, and Why It Matters

Tweet Jon Levy As you probably could have guessed if you didn’t read our post on the subject, we here at TYAC were none too pleased with the US men’s team’s failure to qualify for the Olympics. It was an inexcusable failure, a lost opportunity for growth, and a giant let down for fans who […]

The Thin Grey Line: Loss To Brazil Shows The U.S. Still Have Some Wilderness to Navigate

The Thin Grey Line: Loss To Brazil Shows The U.S. Still Have Some Wilderness to Navigate

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon A bit behind the flurry of post-match analysis, but perhaps that’s okay for a more analytic look at the United States’ 4-1 loss to Brazil at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland Wednesday night. The most certain (though maybe not the largest?) takeaway from the match? Brazil is still really good, even […]

Youthful Brazil Poses Stern Test For Evolving US Offense: Your TYAC Preview

Youthful Brazil Poses Stern Test For Evolving US Offense: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Fresh off the most dominant performance of the Klinsmann era, and perhaps the most dominant display by a U.S. MNT midfield in a decade Saturday against Scotland in Jacksonville, the United States plays game two of what Jurgen Klinsmann last week called a “five game tournament” tonight against a youthful, experimental […]

2011 FIFA Women's World Cup: What US Women Did In Dresden, In A Word: Unforgettable

2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup: What US Women Did In Dresden, In A Word: Unforgettable

Tweet By Neil W. Blackmon Let’s just get the disclaimer right out of the way, shall we? What follows won’t do today justice. I would hope that’s obvious. Some moments in life are too sensory, too “I wish I could have been there or seen that” for the written word. In the age of youtube […]

Puck's Friday Happy Hour: The USWNT Quarterfinals Edition: Watch, or Don't Tread with US Soccer Anymore

Puck’s Friday Happy Hour: The USWNT Quarterfinals Edition: Watch, or Don’t Tread with US Soccer Anymore

Tweet By Puck Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back into the Happy Hour. It’s been two weeks since the traumatic Gold Cup Final, and I have finally begun to come to terms with what took place. Yes, it was not the result we wanted, but it is certainly not the end of the USMNT as we […]

 Les Bleus Turnaround May Be Nigh, Giuseppe Rossi's Azzurri, and Other International Date Musings

Les Bleus Turnaround May Be Nigh, Giuseppe Rossi’s Azzurri, and Other International Date Musings

Tweet By Neil W. Blackmon Today would have been a USMNT match day but as I noted yesterday, the Federation made the safe and correct call in cancelling the Yanks’ fixture against Egypt in Cairo. There were plenty of FIFA internationals on the menu however, and at least a few storylines worth visiting on this […]

USA vs. Brazil Preview

Tweet EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ– Does this week’s spat of international friendlies represent an incredibly awkwardly timed set of fixtures being shoehorned into a tiny window and conflicting with many league schedules while needlessly interrupting the lead up to the Western European club season? Yes. Should we shut up about it and enjoy the matches themselves […]

Oranje: Don't Look So Surprised

Oranje: Don’t Look So Surprised

Tweet Holland just downed Brazil two to one, leaving the contents of the tournament co-favorite (let’s not forget about Spain) to scatter across Western Europe in returning to their home clubs. I like the Dutch and I tend to root against Brazil, but this is no Oranje flag-waving piece. I’m not of Dutch descent and […]
