69 Days Till Natal: Tuesday Thoughts

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Greetings. We’re under 70 days until the US tries to exorcise two World Cups worth of demons against Ghana and get group play in Brazil off to a roaring start. If you’re anything like me, the sense of anticipation grows more palpable by the day. Here’s a few thoughts to jumpstart […]

US 2, South Korea 0: Solid 2014 Debut Icing on the Cupcake

US 2, South Korea 0: Solid 2014 Debut Icing on the Cupcake

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Out of deference to the Super Bowl, TYAC’s traditional “final thoughts and match musings” piece moves to Monday this week. After last night’s display by the team from Colorado, there is a thinking at least on this end that the deference was ill-deserved. What a travishammockery of a football game. The bad news […]

Michael Bradley, Toronto FC and American Angst

Michael Bradley, Toronto FC and American Angst

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Multiple sources have now confirmed that USMNT and Roma midfielder Michael Bradley will depart Serie A for perennial MLS als0-ran Toronto FC in a deal high on transfer fee (from both Roma’s and MLS’ perspective) but higher on fan reaction melodrama.  Bradley, fighting but failing to receive a great deal of […]

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 […]

Klinsmann Releases Roster for Scotland, Austria Friendlies

Tweet Daniel Seco Jurgen Klinsmann has released the 23 man roster for the US Men’s National Team friendlies against Scotland and Austria, November 15th and November 19th respectively.  As expected by our own Neil W. Blackmon, Klinsmann’s promise to call in players who were still competing in the MLS playoffs turned out to be a […]

Finish Strong: US Look To Keep Momentum Going vs. Jamaica: TYAC Preview

Finish Strong: US Look To Keep Momentum Going vs. Jamaica: TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy  Editor’s Note: The original preview was written before the (now classic) late-minute additions made by Jurgen Klinsmann. We have updated the preview to reflect those changes. If you have not heard: Eddie Johnson is out. Clarence Goodson, Chris Wondolowski and Brad Davis are in. Enjoy. No Dempsey. No Bradley. No problem? The […]

Three Points in Oh-Hi-O: TYAC Official USA-Mexico Preview

Three Points in Oh-Hi-O: TYAC Official USA-Mexico Preview

Tweet   Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon  COLUMBUS, OH It is dangerous, in high level soccer circles, to discuss Michael Bradley, the Roma midfielder/US heartbeat who was injured, freakishly, we presume, in the pre-match warmup Friday night in San Jose, Costa Rica. Yes, Bradley is a good and influential player, but how good? He’s […]

US Face Costa Rica Team Primed for Revenge Friday Night: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon Both teams enter this game with nightmares of earlier encounters dancing through their heads. Thankfully, those wounds are much fresher for the Costa Ricans. Just five months ago Costa Rica lost one-nil to a reeling USMNT team in a Colorado blizzard. That game has since been dubbed the […]

Blackmon The United States will look to continue its federation best and current world best twelve game winning streak beginning next week with a match against Costa Rica at the new national stadium in San Jose. Following that match, the Yanks will fly back to the United States and play Mexico in […]

TYAC USMNT Depth Chart Series Part IV: Wingers

Tweet Jon Levy What a summer for the Yanks. They’ve now run the longest winning streak in national team history to twelve games, and that’s the longest active streak in the world. And by a good margin. But shouldn’t we be talking about the now undeniable trend of playing absolutely thrilling matches against Eastern European […]

Klinsmann Konundrum: How Jurgen Has Managed the Deepest US Player Pool Yet

Klinsmann Konundrum: How Jurgen Has Managed the Deepest US Player Pool Yet

Tweet Connor Walsh As the United States wraps up its 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign with a trophy and prepares for the final slate of World Cup Qualifying, United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann is enjoying a wealth of talent across the board.  Whether it’s the continued renaissance of DaMarcus Beasley, the return to world […]
