Gold Cup Roster Roundtable: Keepers and Defenders

Gold Cup Roster Roundtable: Keepers and Defenders

Tweet TYAC STAFF Greetings, Yanks fans!  With the Gold Cup only a month and a half away, it is time for TYAC to take a detailed look at the roster. To do that, we’ve assembled four soccer writers who have seen an international or three and asked them to debate it out. We felt a debate and […]

Dos A Cero: What We Learned At the Alamodome

Dos A Cero: What We Learned At the Alamodome

Tweet John Halloran Dos a cero, the most iconic scoreline in the history of the United States men’s national team, added another chapter to its storied history on Wednesday night as the U.S. once again defeated arch-rival Mexico 2-0, this time in San Antonio, Texas. The victory came on the back on two second-half goals, […]

USA vs. Mexico: Fight! The TYAC Preview

USA vs. Mexico: Fight! The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon Rivalries are often cyclical, but… My how a Graham Zusi header in Panama can change everything.  Since Graham Zusi’s late header found the back of the old onion bag and Panama and delivered El Tri from the “we aren’t going to Brazil” fire and wilderness and into a World […]

US 1, Switzerland 1: Yanks Were Better Against Swiss, Until They Weren't

US 1, Switzerland 1: Yanks Were Better Against Swiss, Until They Weren’t

Tweet John Halloran For 65 minutes on Tuesday night in Zurich, the United States men’s national team was fairly impressive. They controlled decent spells of possession, looked dangerous on the break and were even beating the 12th-ranked Swiss squad. Then, a familiar pattern emerged. Following a foolish red card earned by Jozy Altidore in the […]

US-Switzerland: Has Klinsmann Reached an Event Horizon? HaveThe TYAC Preview

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon There is a moment in beard-growing when the beard stops itching and all the attendant difficulties of beard growing become somehow manageable. The beard grows and grows and eventually the itching stops.An event horizon, where all that’s left is grooming and the reward of being dashingly beard handsome until the beard […]

Denmark 3, US 2: More of the Same From Klinsmann's Yanks

Denmark 3, US 2: More of the Same From Klinsmann’s Yanks

Tweet John D. Halloran Thoroughly dominated in possession. Saved time after time by their goalkeeper. Few attacking chances created. A late-game collapse. No, this is not Bob Bradley’s United States men’s national team. Nor is it a recap of this summer’s World Cup match against Belgium. It’s the state of the U.S. national team three […]

Something Rotten in Denmark? US Hope Not: The TYAC Preview

Something Rotten in Denmark? US Hope Not: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon The United States enters the March European friendlies having won the last time they got the band together, which largely is where the good news ends as they ready for tomorrow night’s match in Aarhus against Denmark (3 PM EDT, ESPN 2). This is still a side tall on questions and […]

USA 2, Panama 0: What We Learned in Feel Good Win

USA 2, Panama 0: What We Learned in Feel Good Win

Tweet John Halloran Who ever thought a win over a CONCACAF opponent in a January camp friendly could be so important?  Heading into Sunday afternoon’s game against Panama, the United States men’s national team was a pitiful 1-5-3 in its last nine matches and had developed a recent, and unsavory, habit of second-half collapses.  After […]

Desperate For Victory, US Face Panama: The TYAC Preview

Desperate For Victory, US Face Panama: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy The USMNT enters Sunday afternoon’s match against Panama (4PM EDT, ESPN) on putrid run of form. The only team colder than the US right now? You guessed it, Van Halen’s favorite CONCACAF club: Panama.  Since defeating Ghana in Natal, the USMNT have won only one match- a 1-0 win over the Czech […]

Klinsmann Shows His Narcissistic Side in 3-5-2 Formation Experiment

Klinsmann Shows His Narcissistic Side in 3-5-2 Formation Experiment

Tweet I’m a fan of Jurgen Klinsmann. He’s brought the sort of panache and bravado that you would expect from a former World Cup-winning striker. In their coach, the Americans have a personality on the world stage, a headline for the European papers, and a talisman to represent their intention to become a true contender. […]

Chile 3, US 2: Why, Klinsy, Why?

Chile 3, US 2: Why, Klinsy, Why?

Tweet John D. Halloran Another match—another second-half collapse by the United States men’s national team. Another match—another set of confounding decisions by U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann.  On Wednesday, the USMNT fell 3-2 to Chile in the first of two friendlies scheduled to conclude this year’s January camp. Despite holding a 2-1 lead at the […]

USA vs. Chile: TYAC Preview: The New Camp Cupcake

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon and Jon Levy  Given the way 2014 closed- ties at home to Ecuador and Honduras, a loss in London to Colombia and a thrashing in Dublin against Ireland—American fans, and Jurgen Klinsmann, most likely—are thrilled the 2015 campaign will begin for US Soccer against Chile Wednesday evening in the Chilean wine […]
