USA vs. Honduras, Game 1, AD: The TYAC Preview

USA vs. Honduras, Game 1, AD: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy and Neil W. Blackmon Well, here we are, after all the emotion- even if it still feels slightly bizarre or surreal- of Friday night. The first match of the post-Donovan era (when Donovan wasn’t an available player in the pool not chosen by his manager!) begins on a hopeful note, as young […]

Landon Donovan: The Hero America Deserved

Landon Donovan: The Hero America Deserved

Tweet When my editors here at The Yanks Are Coming requested (nay, demanded) that I write a quick, personal eulogy on Landon Donovan’s career in advance of his last USMNT match on Friday, it hit me like a ton of bricks. It wasn’t so much the weight of the moment regarding Donovans’ last game. Rather, the […]

Landon the Legend, Landon the Enigma

Landon the Legend, Landon the Enigma

Tweet Editor’s Note: We asked TYAC writers and soccer voices to share their thoughts on Landon Donovan’s exceptional career. This is one of those pieces, from TYAC contributor Connor Walsh.                Landon Donovan is set to make his final farewell tonight against Ecuador.  It’s been a career rife with monumental highs and […]

USA vs. Ecuador: TYAC Previews the Donovan Farewell

USA vs. Ecuador: TYAC Previews the Donovan Farewell

Tweet Jon Levy Welcome my friends, to the Landon Donovan testimonial match. A match in which we hope to celebrate the heights of US Soccer’s past through perhaps the team’s biggest ever star, while watching some new American stars in the making. That’s the storyline we’re supposed to be selling for this one right? I’m […]

Thanks LD Week

Thanks LD Week

Tweet The Editors With Landon Donovan set to bid the US Men’s National Team farewell Friday night against Ecuador in Connecticut (7 PM, ESPN 2), we thought we’d spend a few days at TYAC saluting the American #10.  No doubt we’ll be labeled “fan boys” for doing so, but we don’t really care. After all, we […]

International Breaks, FIFA, and the MLS Playoffs

International Breaks, FIFA, and the MLS Playoffs

Tweet Andrew Marcinko Alright FIFA, who do we have to bribe to get some more conveniently scheduled international breaks around here? Ok, I’ll admit, I’m still a little sour about the Qatar thing. I’m teetering between ‘Anger’ and ‘Bargaining’ on the five stages of grief. I’m told ‘Depression’ is up next, which can only mean […]

TYAC's MLS 24 Under 24 Ballot

TYAC’s MLS 24 Under 24 Ballot

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Last year, in an effort spearheaded by The Shin Guardian, we, along with writers like Charles Boehm, released a MLS “24 Under 24″ ballot ranking the 24 best players under 24 in Major League Soccer and explaining our rankings. We included commentary from a MLS assistant coach, as well as a MLS […]

Who's Next for the USMNT in Goal After Tim Howard and Brad Guzan?

Who’s Next for the USMNT in Goal After Tim Howard and Brad Guzan?

Tweet Goalkeeper has long been a position of particular strength for the United States Men’s National Team. The World Cup in Brazil made Tim Howard a household name among even the most casual of fans. But lest we forget, before Howard there was Brad Friedel, and before him Kasey Keller. Howard is currently backed up […]

European Youth Academies In US: Changing the Development Landscape?

European Youth Academies In US: Changing the Development Landscape?

Tweet David Tenenbaum 15 years ago, the United States Soccer Federation designed a plan to get their country to the final of the World Cup. The USSF was so confident in this plan that they set a deadline of 2010 to reach the final. 2010 came and went, and Ghana had slammed the door on […]

Oh Captain, My Captain: Trouble Saying Goodbye To Carlos Bocanegra

Oh Captain, My Captain: Trouble Saying Goodbye To Carlos Bocanegra

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon I’ve no idea if there’s a moment in life where you begin to feel old. I’m not referencing a “Murtaugh List”  of things you can’t do at a certain age. That’s too easy and less about mortality than it is about humor. I’m talking about seachange. About the genuine end of childhood […]

USMNT World Cup Cycle 2018: Czech One, Czech Two

USMNT World Cup Cycle 2018: Czech One, Czech Two

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon and Jon Levy Check one. Mic check. Check Two. Mic Check. Is this thing on? World Cup cycle time. Check one. The United States begins the long and winding road of another World Cup cycle- let’s call it “The Road to Russia, maybe”– this evening in beautiful Prague. I’ll give the […]

Lack of August USMNT Friendly Marks End of Idiotic Era

Lack of August USMNT Friendly Marks End of Idiotic Era

Tweet Jon Levy There’s no US Men’s National Team match this week, and I’m absolutely overjoyed about it! Am I still burnt out from the World Cup? As a writer? As a fan? No and nope and nuh-uh. In fact, it’s already been a great week for the USMNT. The right back of the future, […]
