Brad Guzan shows exactly why Aston Villa fans were so fed up with him, Argentina show why they’re great

That's one way to give up an opener to Argentina. So Brad Guzan is facing off against the #1-ranked team in the world, playing keeper against perhaps the best player ever. He’s had a pretty good Copa América Centenario so far, and for many Aston Villa fans, that’s been a bit of a surprise. After all, this was the keeper who kept losing his job to Mark Bunn this season for one of the worst Premier League teams of all time. He wasn’t good. But there’s been a return to form, and it must have felt very at home for Guzan. Just as we saw happen so often with Villa, the USMNT allowed a...

USMNT vs. Argentina Copa América Semifinal how to watch: Can Villa scapegoat Brad Guzan stop the world's best player?

Brad Guzan gets a chance to shine for the United States after being terrible for Aston Villa all season. In order to succeed, he’ll just have to stop Messi. No big deal. Alright, so this match is sort of a big deal. I mean, kind of. I dunno. A lot of our British readers probably don’t care, but for those of us in the Americas, it’s pretty awesome. And for Aston Villa fans, we actually have a connection to the most important football match in the world today (offer good only for today). So here’s the lowdown: it’s the United States vs. Argentina in the Copa América Centenario...

Guzan, Sánchez advance to Copa América Centenario semifinals

Both the host United States and Colombia are through to next week’s semifinals, which means more opportunities await to see Brad Guzan and Carlos Sánchez this summer. It was a good close to the week for Aston Villa players putting on for their countries during the Copa América Centenario, as both Brad Guzan’s United States and Carlos Sánchez’s Colombia advanced to the semifinals. In Thursday’s quarterfinal between the States and Ecuador, Guzan once again got the nod in goal and once again had a pretty good performance. With the Americans 1-0 up headed into halftime, the Villa...

Guzan in near unrecognizably superb form as USMNT squeezes by Paraguay

Brad Guzan put in a spectacular performance for the USMNT Saturday evening in Philadelphia as the United States squeaked by Paraguay to punch a ticket to the quarter finals of the Copa America. Villa keeper Brad Guzan has assumed the role of United States Mens National Team starting keeper for this year's Copa America. While the first two games of the tournament against Colombia and Costa Rica were pretty pedestrian for Guzan, he excelled for the first time in the tournament Saturday night against Paraguay. With the United States in need of either a win or draw to guarantee progression in...

Are Villa set to make a move for this U.S born keeper?

Boaz Myhill came through the Aston Villa youth team after moving over from the United States and in an interesting twist of fate, could be set to replace Brad Guzan for Villa next season. No longer wanted by a West Bromwich Albion team he has barely featured for, Villa could certainly make a move for Boaz on the cheap (which, you know is good considering Villa's takeover by the Recon Group could yet fall apart). Aston Villa need a new goalkeeper, even if Brad Guzan stays at the club and there are better options for the Villans - especially if they choose to pursue former England stopper Rob...

Guzan keeps clean sheet as United States thrash Costa Rica

Tuesday night proved nicer to Brad Guzan than Friday did, with the Villa keeper making a pair of saves as the United States moved into an advantageous position in Copa América Centenario action with a 4-0 win. In Friday’s Copa América opener against Colombia, the United States fell behind inside of 10 minutes. But Tuesday night against Costa Rica, the Americans went ahead in the 10th minute on a Clint Dempsey goal from the spot — and they never looked back to thrash Costa Rica, 4-0. All things considered, it was a pretty quiet night for goalkeeper Brad Guzan and the rest of the United...

Guzan beaten twice as United States fall in Copa América opener

Brad Guzan got the start as the United States kicked off Copa América last night, and it was a pretty pedestrian performance from the Villa keeper. It was the same old story for Aston Villa’s No. 2, and the United States’ No. 1, goalkeeper, as Brad Guzan was beaten twice by Colombia in a 2-0 victory for Los Cafeteros to open the Copa América Centenario held in the U.S. In something that shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone, especially those of us who are Stateside Villa fans, Guzan was beaten inside of 10 minutes, with the Colombia goal coming off a poorly-defended corner kick...
