73 Days From USA and Ghana: Thoughts of the Day

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon As good a time as any to begin what will be your author’s daily countdown diary to the United States and Ghana kicking off the Yanks 2014 World Cup campaign in Natal. As this is the beginning of this feature, all I can suggest is that each day I’ll address certain […]

Fourth Annual Yanks Are Coming US Soccer Awards – Part One

Tweet Happy New Year, readers!  For the last three years, we’ve concluded the year here at the TYAC home offices by handing out awards to the best (and yes, worst) of US Soccer for the calendar year that was. This year, we thought we’d bump the awards back to coincide with “Awards Season”, a fitting move given […]

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 […]

Grinding In Glasgow: US and Scotland Play Forgettable Draw, Plus “Player Ratings”

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon History will report that on November 15, 2013, the United States and Scotland played a friendly match in Glasgow, Scotland and the match ended in a scoreless draw.

Streaking Into Sarajevo: TYAC US-Bosnia and Herzegovina Preview

Streaking Into Sarajevo: TYAC US-Bosnia and Herzegovina Preview

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon It’s upon us again, the worst international date on the FIFA calendar. Does anyone understand why Sepp Blatter and his boys keep scheduling an international friendly window three days before the world’s most popular soccer league kicks off its season? I’m pretty sure there’s no oil money vested […]

USMNT Depth Chart Series, Part 3: Central Midfielders

Tweet Jon Levy Clint Dempsey, the best American soccer player in the world, has made his shocking move back to MLS, and he’ll soon be lighting the lamp in “America’s soccer city.” Okay, so that sentence is supposed to make our readership spike. Right? Maybe so, but Dempsey doesn’t make an appearance on the depth […]

Tweet   Neil W. Blackmon Editor’s Note: This is the second of a four-part series analyzing the “State of the US Soccer Union” as the Americans prepare for two critical CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying matches later this month. Today we look at the US midfield.

US U-20 Team: Looking Back and Looking Forward

US U-20 Team: Looking Back and Looking Forward

Tweet Jon Levy Well that was quite different, wasn’t it? It was an uninspired first match for the US U-20 team to start the 2013 CONCACAF Championship/U-20 World Cup Qualification Tournament, but a match in which a shorthanded team fought through its weaknesses to pick up an ugly win against an inferior opponent. Can’t think […]
