Tweet Neil W. Blackmon and Jon Levy The United States Men’s National Team will look to bounce back after disappointing October home friendlies by taking their show on the road tomorrow night, as they battle World Cup darlings Colombia in London.

USA vs. Honduras, Game 1, AD: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon Well, here we are, after all the emotion- even if it still feels slightly bizarre or surreal- of Friday night.

USA-Germany Preview: Can the US Pop the Luftballon?

Tweet Andrew Villegas and Neil W. Blackmon 90 minutes for four years.

Blackmon and Zack Goldman The United States pulled a “deja vu all over again” in Yogi Berra’s backyard by beating Turkey 2-1 in a World Cup Send-Off Series match for the second straight cycle, this time at a sold-out Red Bull Arena. The result was positive. Turkey are a good, but not great […]

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.

USA 2, Azerbaijan 0: Five Final Thoughts

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon The United States Men’s National Team opened the “Send-Off Series” for the 2014 World Cup with a 2-0 victory over Azerbaijan Tuesday night in San Francisco.

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.

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.
