62 Days Until USA vs. Ghana: Tuesday Thoughts

62 Days Until USA vs. Ghana: Tuesday Thoughts

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Player #30 in our “32 Players to Watch at the 2014 FIFA World Cup” list coming tonight, but let’s get the lay of the land after an exciting week of soccer in the United States, which saw some compelling action in MLS and the opening of the North American Soccer League’s […]

USA vs. Mexico- Never A Friendly: Your TYAC Preview

USA vs. Mexico- Never A Friendly: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy A (late) Wednesday night in the middle of the week after March Madness has morphed into the far less chaotic Final Four seems like the perfect time for a good old fashioned MLS All-Stars versus Liga MX All-Stars bloodbath. Throw in a side of what could be a debut for US Soccer’s […]

USA vs. Mexico Roster: American Dream and Julian Green

USA vs. Mexico Roster: American Dream and Julian Green

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Jurgen Klinsmann’s European-based contingent had their final run-through before the 30 man send-off series roster is selected in just over a month, falling 2-0 to an inspired Ukraine in Cyprus. Now, it’s the American-based players turn, with Mexico waiting in the wings in Glendale next week. Julian Green of Bayern Munich, […]

State of the Union: US Midfield Still A Position of Strength, But Must Provide More

State of the Union: US Midfield Still A Position of Strength, But Must Provide More

Tweet   Neil W. Blackmon Editor’s Note: This is the second of a four-part series analyzing the “State of the US Soccer Union” as the Americans prepare for two critical CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying matches later this month. Today we look at the US midfield. Garrett McInnis breaks down the US defense in Part One. It wasn’t […]

USA-Jamaica Preview: US Again Out For A Bit of History, Three Road Points in Jamaica

USA-Jamaica Preview: US Again Out For A Bit of History, Three Road Points in Jamaica

Tweet Jon Levy Two matches in five days against the other top team in our qualifying group. These matches were always going to be important, but they’ve taken on even greater significance ever since Marco Pappa’s sublime free kick in Guatemala sent you scrambling for your qualifying schedule. These could be make-or-break matches. Win ‘em […]

USA-Mexico Preview, Part One: Breaking Down the US Roster

USA-Mexico Preview, Part One: Breaking Down the US Roster

Tweet Connor Walsh In the wake of Mexico’s gold medal winning performance in the Olympics, fans of the US Men’s National Team understandably began to worry. After all- the Mexican trophy collection this World Cup cycle is remarkable: U-17 World Champions, U-20 Third Place, Toulon Cup Champions, Pan Am Games Champions, Gold Cup Champions, Olympic […]

Antigua and Barbuda: Three Points and a Boyd Cap Tie, But US Knows it can Be Better

Antigua and Barbuda: Three Points and a Boyd Cap Tie, But US Knows it can Be Better

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon It was fitting that on a night where a steady rain made the Raymond James Pirate ship appear to be moving in the mist, the United States got off to a foggy, turbulent start to World Cup qualifying, winning a game 3-1 but also getting a stern warning as to just […]

Canada Draw Proof US Have Thin Margin For Error, But May Prove Useful Down Road

Canada Draw Proof US Have Thin Margin For Error, But May Prove Useful Down Road

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Greetings after a long and not so fruitful trip to Toronto, where the USMNT drew Canada 0-0. On the one end, the Americans did not lose to the Canadians for the first time since the Reagan Administration. On the other hand, they deserved too, as only a phantom foul negated a […]

The Thin Grey Line: Loss To Brazil Shows The U.S. Still Have Some Wilderness to Navigate

The Thin Grey Line: Loss To Brazil Shows The U.S. Still Have Some Wilderness to Navigate

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon A bit behind the flurry of post-match analysis, but perhaps that’s okay for a more analytic look at the United States’ 4-1 loss to Brazil at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland Wednesday night. The most certain (though maybe not the largest?) takeaway from the match? Brazil is still really good, even […]

Youthful Brazil Poses Stern Test For Evolving US Offense: Your TYAC Preview

Youthful Brazil Poses Stern Test For Evolving US Offense: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Fresh off the most dominant performance of the Klinsmann era, and perhaps the most dominant display by a U.S. MNT midfield in a decade Saturday against Scotland in Jacksonville, the United States plays game two of what Jurgen Klinsmann last week called a “five game tournament” tonight against a youthful, experimental […]

Goal Starved USMNT Faces Stingy Slovenian Defense: Your Official TYAC Preview

Goal Starved USMNT Faces Stingy Slovenian Defense: Your Official TYAC Preview

Tweet By Jon Levy I’m going to be really nice to Jurgen Klinsmann and describe his first six matches in charge as “underwhelming.” Far more severe adjectives could be applied, especially after the disappointing performance against France. Alexei Lalas nailed it, as he often does, in calling the team out for not even attempting to […]

Yanks Abroad: Dempsey Double Duty, Buddle Brace Headline Europa Action

Yanks Abroad: Dempsey Double Duty, Buddle Brace Headline Europa Action

Tweet by Dru Boyer The Yanks Abroad returned to Europa League play on Thursday with a vengeance … not a single Yanks’ squad lost a match. It was a pretty decent Thursday, in fact the Yanks were 7-2-0 in the matches (Dominic Cervi and Brad Friedel did not dress for Celtic and Tottenham, respectively.) The Player of the Week honor […]
