Gold Cup 2013: US Wary of Upset-Minded Belize - Your TYAC Preview

Gold Cup 2013: US Wary of Upset-Minded Belize – Your TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy We’re getting’ the band back together! Landon, Stu, Gooch, Herculez, and Ale-Alejandro partyin’ in San Diego against an outmatched and outgunned Guatemala, showing Jurgen Klinsmann they’re all ready for a line-in-the-sand Gold Cup. It’s a make-or-break tournament for most guys on this roster, and that’s the way we like it. And for […]

TYAC Preview: USMNT Head Into the Whale's ... (Den) For Guatemala Gold Cup Tuneup

TYAC Preview: USMNT Head Into the Whale’s … (Den) For Guatemala Gold Cup Tuneup

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Part II of what prior to the Belgium match at Cleveland’s “Factory of Sadness” we called a two act summer for the US Men’s National Team begins (late) Friday night in the whale’s…err.. San Diego when the Yanks face Guatemala in a Gold Cup tuneup. By and large, the squad is different […]

USMNT Depth Chart: Gold Cup Edition- Goalkeepers and Central Defenders

USMNT Depth Chart: Gold Cup Edition- Goalkeepers and Central Defenders

Tweet Jon Levy Here at The Yanks Are Coming we write a lot about the harsh realities of small sample size inherent in the game at national team level. So few matches, so much riding on each one, and hardly any opportunities to evaluate without consequences. That’s why we’re including notes made prior to the […]

Klinsmann Signals Intent To Win With Veteran-Heavy Gold Cup Roster

Klinsmann Signals Intent To Win With Veteran-Heavy Gold Cup Roster

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Jurgen Klinsmann’s Gold Cup roster was released yesterday, and it is a veteran-heavy group that should be the favorites to lift the trophy for the first time since Benny Feilhaber’s blast-heard-round-the-continent in 2007. Here is the roster: GOALKEEPERS (3) : Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Puck's Friday Happy Hour: Tampa Weekend Edition

Puck’s Friday Happy Hour: Tampa Weekend Edition

Tweet By Puck Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back into the Happy Hour. Tuesday night was quite the performance from the USMNT. I am not quite sure exactly what Bob said to the boys in the locker room before the opening whistle, but it got the job done. After the absolute dismantling at the hands of […]

Detroit Rock City: Everybody's Gonna Leave Their Seat: Your USA-Canada Preview

Detroit Rock City: Everybody’s Gonna Leave Their Seat: Your USA-Canada Preview

Tweet By Jon Levy Let’s put the Spain game squarely in the rear view. That’s what I’m writing to start this preview, and that’s what US Soccer should have already done. Two days ago. Or two minutes after the match ended; the sooner the better. It was a relatively pointless (if well intentioned) New England […]

Puck’s Friday Happy Hour: Puck’s Soccer Adventures in Italy Edition

Tweet By Puck Bonjourno, Yanks and Yankettes. Guess whose back? Apologies for the two week layoff, but I have been out of the country generally kicking ass. That’s right, Puck took his foul-mouthed, USMNT loving, beard growing self overseas to see what life is like in the land of meatballs and Cannoli. In truth, I […]

USA-Spain Preview: A Great Marketing Ploy for US Soccer, A Silly Tune-Up Game

USA-Spain Preview: A Great Marketing Ploy for US Soccer, A Silly Tune-Up Game

Tweet By Jon Levy Disclaimer: I’m a big believer in scheduling a warm-up friendly match right before a big tournament. That being said… This match is basically a sideshow. Sure, the revenge storyline is in play for La Furia Roja, but will it actually manifest itself on the pitch? The 2009 Confederations Cup was (to […]
