Denmark 3, US 2: More of the Same From Klinsmann's Yanks

Denmark 3, US 2: More of the Same From Klinsmann’s Yanks

Tweet John D. Halloran Thoroughly dominated in possession. Saved time after time by their goalkeeper. Few attacking chances created. A late-game collapse. No, this is not Bob Bradley’s United States men’s national team. Nor is it a recap of this summer’s World Cup match against Belgium. It’s the state of the U.S. national team three […]

Something Rotten in Denmark? US Hope Not: The TYAC Preview

Something Rotten in Denmark? US Hope Not: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon The United States enters the March European friendlies having won the last time they got the band together, which largely is where the good news ends as they ready for tomorrow night’s match in Aarhus against Denmark (3 PM EDT, ESPN 2).

USA 2, Panama 0: What We Learned in Feel Good Win

Tweet John Halloran Who ever thought a win over a CONCACAF opponent in a January camp friendly could be so important?  Heading into Sunday afternoon’s game against Panama, the United States men’s national team was a pitiful 1-5-3 in its last nine matches and had developed a recent, and unsavory, habit of second-half collapses.  After […]

Desperate For Victory, US Face Panama: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy The USMNT enters Sunday afternoon’s match against Panama (4PM EDT, ESPN) on putrid run of form. The only team colder than the US right now? You guessed it, Van Halen’s favorite CONCACAF club: Panama.  Since defeating Ghana in Natal, the USMNT have won only one match- a 1-0 win over the Czech […]

Klinsmann Shows His Narcissistic Side in 3-5-2 Formation Experiment

Klinsmann Shows His Narcissistic Side in 3-5-2 Formation Experiment

Tweet I’m a fan of Jurgen Klinsmann. He’s brought the sort of panache and bravado that you would expect from a former World Cup-winning striker. In their coach, the Americans have a personality on the world stage, a headline for the European papers, and a talisman to represent their intention to become a true contender. […]

Chile 3, US 2: Why, Klinsy, Why?

Chile 3, US 2: Why, Klinsy, Why?

Tweet John D. Halloran Another match—another second-half collapse by the United States men’s national team. Another match—another set of confounding decisions by U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann.  On Wednesday, the USMNT fell 3-2 to Chile in the first of two friendlies scheduled to conclude this year’s January camp. Despite holding a 2-1 lead at the […]

USA vs. Chile: TYAC Preview: The New Camp Cupcake

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon and Jon Levy  Given the way 2014 closed- ties at home to Ecuador and Honduras, a loss in London to Colombia and a thrashing in Dublin against Ireland—American fans, and Jurgen Klinsmann, most likely—are thrilled the 2015 campaign will begin for US Soccer against Chile Wednesday evening in the Chilean wine […]

On Gedion Zelalem and The End Of the US Soccer Community’s Innocence

Tweet Jon Levy When you’ve traveled a great distance, bested many rivals, and completed a seemingly inexhaustible list of Herculean labors, it’s an awe inspiring exercise to look back at where you started. That’s not what this story’s about. Rather, this is a story about a moderate amount of progress, and a monumental change in […]

US Look To Close Memorable Year Strong In Dublin: TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon Another lead squandered. That’s the resounding memory the United States will take with them after Friday’s 2-1 defeat to Colombia at Craven Cottage. Since defeating Nigeria in Jacksonville to end the “Send Off Series” in June, the US have done an excellent job of securing leads, having done […]

Op-Ed: One Week Later, Don Garber Still Not Wrong

Tweet Jay Bell It has been a few days since Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber’s now infamous teleconference in response to US men’s national team manager Jürgen Klinsmann’s criticisms of top American players choosing to play in MLS.  The teleconference opened up a litany of issues and topics to scrutinize over in regards to […]
