Op-Ed: One Week Later, Don Garber Still Not Wrong

Op-Ed: One Week Later, Don Garber Still Not Wrong

Tweet Jay Bell It has been a few days since Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber’s now infamous teleconference in response to US men’s national team manager Jürgen Klinsmann’s criticisms of top American players choosing to play in MLS.  The teleconference opened up a litany of issues and topics to scrutinize over in regards to […]

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

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. The first match of the post-Donovan era (when Donovan wasn’t an available player in the pool not chosen by his manager!) begins on a hopeful note, as young […]

Landon the Legend, Landon the Enigma

Landon the Legend, Landon the Enigma

Tweet Editor’s Note: We asked TYAC writers and soccer voices to share their thoughts on Landon Donovan’s exceptional career. This is one of those pieces, from TYAC contributor Connor Walsh.                Landon Donovan is set to make his final farewell tonight against Ecuador.  It’s been a career rife with monumental highs and […]

USA vs. Ecuador: TYAC Previews the Donovan Farewell

Tweet Jon Levy Welcome my friends, to the Landon Donovan testimonial match. A match in which we hope to celebrate the heights of US Soccer’s past through perhaps the team’s biggest ever star, while watching some new American stars in the making. That’s the storyline we’re supposed to be selling for this one right? I’m […]

International Breaks, FIFA, and the MLS Playoffs

International Breaks, FIFA, and the MLS Playoffs

Tweet Andrew Marcinko Alright FIFA, who do we have to bribe to get some more conveniently scheduled international breaks around here? Ok, I’ll admit, I’m still a little sour about the Qatar thing. I’m teetering between ‘Anger’ and ‘Bargaining’ on the five stages of grief. I’m told ‘Depression’ is up next, which can only mean […]

European Youth Academies In US: Changing the Development Landscape?

European Youth Academies In US: Changing the Development Landscape?

Tweet David Tenenbaum 15 years ago, the United States Soccer Federation designed a plan to get their country to the final of the World Cup. The USSF was so confident in this plan that they set a deadline of 2010 to reach the final. 2010 came and went, and Ghana had slammed the door on […]

Oh Captain, My Captain: Trouble Saying Goodbye To Carlos Bocanegra

Oh Captain, My Captain: Trouble Saying Goodbye To Carlos Bocanegra

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon I’ve no idea if there’s a moment in life where you begin to feel old. I’m not referencing a “Murtaugh List”  of things you can’t do at a certain age. That’s too easy and less about mortality than it is about humor. I’m talking about seachange. About the genuine end of childhood […]

USMNT World Cup Cycle 2018: Czech One, Czech Two

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon and Jon Levy Check one. Mic check. Check Two. Mic Check. Is this thing on? World Cup cycle time. Check one. The United States begins the long and winding road of another World Cup cycle- let’s call it “The Road to Russia, maybe”– this evening in beautiful Prague. I’ll give the […]

Belgium 2, USA 1: Bittersweet Farewell to A Good Team

Belgium 2, USA 1: Bittersweet Farewell to A Good Team

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon More writing to come in the next few days, including a piece on our personal experiences in Brazil: between the two of us, TYAC was in Natal, Manaus and Recife. Before that, however, and with the benefit of a day of reflection-dangerous in the social media/internet mass content production world […]

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

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

Tweet Andrew Villegas and Neil W. Blackmon 90 minutes for four years. That’s what the United States face Thursday afternoon in Recife.  If it sounds familiar, it should, with mild differences: 2002 – US can advance to knockout stages in Korea/Japan with a win against Poland. The Americans are routed 3-1 in Daejon, only to be bailed […]

Tweet Jon Levy – Natal, Brazil Ladies and gentlemen, damas y caballeros, senhoras e senhores, welcome to the World Cup. Welcome to Brazil. Welcome to the long awaited dreaded Group of Death. The USA/Ghana match is finally here. This match is an opportunity for revenge and retribution against the team that eliminated the Yanks from the last […]
