Why Your Team Won't Win the MLS Cup

Why Your Team Won’t Win the MLS Cup

Tweet If you’re a Major League Soccer fan, you certainly have a favorite squad or two. As we roll into the MLS Playoffs this week, you will probably read a few articles on your favorite sites assessing your teams chances of winning. You’re likely brimming with confidence, and starting to truly believe that this is your year. If you’re for […]

MLS Headed For Amazing Finish

MLS Headed For Amazing Finish

Tweet Ned Joyce It’s been quite a year so far. In the World Cup, the US and Mexico advanced to the 2nd round and Costa Rica to the Quarterfinals.  The MLS had what many consider the best year in its history, with almost more goals per game than any year, and more parity among the […]

Landon Donovan: The Hero America Deserved

Landon Donovan: The Hero America Deserved

Tweet When my editors here at The Yanks Are Coming requested (nay, demanded) that I write a quick, personal eulogy on Landon Donovan’s career in advance of his last USMNT match on Friday, it hit me like a ton of bricks. It wasn’t so much the weight of the moment regarding Donovans’ last game. Rather, the […]

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

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 […]

Like a Jacaranda

Like a Jacaranda

Tweet Editor’s Note: In light of Landon Donovan playing his last match as a US international tomorrow, we asked our writers and other great soccer voices to share their favorite Landon moments with us. It seems fitting that one of the best soccer people we know wrote about the goal of Landon’s life. Friend of TYAC Zack […]

The Writing and Re-Writing of Landon Donovan

The Writing and Re-Writing of Landon Donovan

Tweet So much has been written about Landon Donovan that people have forgotten what they’ve written. This is to be expected. When you spend a decade being the face of the US Men’s National Team and for a large portion of that time, the face of Major League Soccer, scribes will devote plenty of words […]

Thanks LD Week

Thanks LD Week

Tweet The Editors With Landon Donovan set to bid the US Men’s National Team farewell Friday night against Ecuador in Connecticut (7 PM, ESPN 2), we thought we’d spend a few days at TYAC saluting the American #10.  No doubt we’ll be labeled “fan boys” for doing so, but we don’t really care. After all, we […]

Determining the Most Compelling (Non DP) Player in MLS

Determining the Most Compelling (Non DP) Player in MLS

Tweet Ned Joyce The MLS is now headed down the homestretch of its 19th season of existence. It has dealt with expansions, contractions, rough patches and great stretches. There has always been concern with bringing fans into the league, whether it’s bringing soccer into the other sports fans fold or converting an EPL / La Liga […]

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 […]

Why Pep Guardiola Wouldn't Be Too Surprised By His Bad Night In Portland If He Was A TYAC Reader

Why Pep Guardiola Wouldn’t Be Too Surprised By His Bad Night In Portland If He Was A TYAC Reader

Tweet Jon Levy 1. We say it all the time, the MLS is a fast and physical league, that’s probably its biggest single strength right now. Y’know what fast and physical means sometimes? Collisions. In games, in practices, and even in All-Star Games. Collisions sometimes so violent that they cause national team teammates to go […]

World Cup Jersey Culture: The TYAC Guide

World Cup Jersey Culture: The TYAC Guide

Tweet Jon Levy I’m coming to the end of my first week back in the US after an amazing trip to Brazil for the World Cup, and normalcy is starting to set back in. But it’s not quite your everyday normalcy here in Washington DC. This city, along with the rest of the nation, is […]
