FFG’s 2010 Retrospective series is unlike any other site’s year-in-review. We’ve compiled World Cup statistics, analyzed year-long trends, and used a fine-toothed comb to pick apart what went right and what went wrong for the USMNT in 2010.

So if you missed any of our retrospectives, go find out the statistical story behind Donovan-Algeria, Dempsey-Green, and all of your favorite 2010 moments.

All World Cup statistics, unless otherwise noted, were compiled using Colm McMullan’s outstanding Total Football Iphone app.
