USA 2, Azerbaijan 0: Five Final Thoughts

USA 2, Azerbaijan 0: Five Final Thoughts

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon The United States Men’s National Team opened the “Send-Off Series” for the 2014 World Cup with a 2-0 victory over Azerbaijan Tuesday night in San Francisco. In scoring twice, the Americans did what only fellow “Group of Death” side Portugal managed to do in the last two years: score twice against […]

73 Days From USA and Ghana: Thoughts of the Day

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon As good a time as any to begin what will be your author’s daily countdown diary to the United States and Ghana kicking off the Yanks 2014 World Cup campaign in Natal. As this is the beginning of this feature, all I can suggest is that each day I’ll address certain […]

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 […]

US Men Close Special 2013 with Austria Match in Vienna: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy As we noted in our postgame wrap, the United States played a dull, scoreless draw against Scotland Friday on a glum November day in Glasgow– not exactly the type of performance American fans were hoping for as the US turn the final stretch and head into a World Cup year. In the […]

Grinding In Glasgow: US and Scotland Play Forgettable Draw, Plus "Player Ratings"

Grinding In Glasgow: US and Scotland Play Forgettable Draw, Plus “Player Ratings”

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon History will report that on November 15, 2013, the United States and Scotland played a friendly match in Glasgow, Scotland and the match ended in a scoreless draw. That history will report such things is only because history is required to report them. The match was as tedious to observe, perhaps […]

US-Scotland: World Cup Tuneups Begin in Glasgow: TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy Scotland – USA International Friendly: Your TYAC Preview Jurgen Klinsmann called up a group for the November friendlies full of World Cup locks and “fringe finalists”, and Garrett McInnis was correct to write on this website earlier in the week that “not a single one of these players is incapable of making it onto […]

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 […]

USMNT Depth Chart Series, Part 3: Central Midfielders

Tweet Jon Levy Clint Dempsey, the best American soccer player in the world, has made his shocking move back to MLS, and he’ll soon be lighting the lamp in “America’s soccer city.” Okay, so that sentence is supposed to make our readership spike. Right? Maybe so, but Dempsey doesn’t make an appearance on the depth […]

Feel the Rhythm, Feel The Rhyme- For US in Kingston, It’s Get to Work Time: Our Preview

Tweet Jon Levy I was ready to write about how this match is setting up perfectly for the Yanks, and then Tuesday night in Kingston changed everything. The US were set to go into Jamaica on the backs of two good offensive performances against top quality European competition, the second of the two matches being […]

US-Mexico Gameday: Final Pre-Match Thoughts and Links

US-Mexico Gameday: Final Pre-Match Thoughts and Links

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon I love the smell of Mexico City in the morning. Smells of crisp spring air, flatas and baked breads, a touch or two of smog and today, of desperation. It’s a strange, brutally small-sample size world we live in as fans and journalists following the international game and so the narratives […]
