Dos A Cero: What We Learned At the Alamodome

Tweet John Halloran Dos a cero, the most iconic scoreline in the history of the United States men’s national team, added another chapter to its storied history on Wednesday night as the U.S. once again defeated arch-rival Mexico 2-0, this time in San Antonio, Texas.

USA vs. Mexico: Fight! The TYAC Preview

USA vs. Mexico: Fight! The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon Rivalries are often cyclical, but… My how a Graham Zusi header in Panama can change everything.  Since Graham Zusi’s late header found the back of the old onion bag and Panama and delivered El Tri from the “we aren’t going to Brazil” fire and wilderness and into a World […]

US Women Have Been Here Before Against Mexico

US Women Have Been Here Before Against Mexico

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Win and they are in. Tomorrow the very beginning of the expectation surrounding the US Women’s National Team meets reality in Philadelphia.

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon and Maxi Rodriguez We thought we’d change things up a bit for this piece, which focuses on the two men tasked with doing something El Tri found quite difficult in qualifying for the World Cup: scoring goals.

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

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, […]

On Glorious Night For CONCACAF, US Deliver A Champions Performance

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon “Everybody, all these cynics, talking about this United States team laying down – they don’t know how to. It’s not in their DNA.” — Ray Hudson It would have been so easy to just play out the string and go home. Down 2-1 and with stoppage time already posted on the […]

US Close Out Long Qualifying Journey in Panama: Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy It’s been a wild ride, but your team has done it. World Cup spot secured. CONCACAF conquered once again, and just three months out from the Gold Cup Final victory over Panama in Chicago. Columbus. Chicago. KC. The Midwest is good to the US Men’s National Team. Now, rather than drone on […]

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.
