  3. Home humiliation epitomizes Moyes' failure

    David Hirshey

    Elitist Europeans proclaim that Americans simply don't understand the true spirit of world soccer, but they should have seen the display this past Sunday at my local watering hole. Large bald men who looked like they may have either spent time in the...

  4. Gift-giving season comes early for Arsenal fans

    David Hirshey

    As far as birthday presents go, Manchester City's 6-0 evisceration of Spurs was every bit as satisfying as my daughter giving me that Cesc Fabregas action figure -- the one that launches a pizza at Sir Alex Ferguson's head -- a few years ago. I wo...

  6. Let's give United a second chance

    David Hirshey

    Stop the season -- United manager David Moyes wants a do-over. Think of all the pain and suffering this magnanimous idea would save. Plus, it would give Wayne Rooney's head wound time to heal so that he doesn't have to look so miserable wearing a fan...

  7. David HIrshey on what he'll miss about Fergie time

    David Hirshey

    As someone who has been following English soccer since Vinnie Jones grabbed Paul Gascoigne in a place that is generally considered impolite, I can't help but admire Sir Alex Ferguson's staggering achievement as the manager of Manchester United: 26 ye...

  8. FA Cup is Rafa's last Chelsea dance

    David Hirshey

    Sometime in May, Rafa Benitez will walk through the door at Stamford Bridge marked Vamonos while being careful not to bump into Jose Mourinho who, according to reports in the oh-so-reliable English press, will be swaggering through the door marked "W...

  9. Fact: Sir Alex Ferguson was out-coached by Rafa Benitez

    David Hirshey

  10. Clint Dempsey's heartwarming moment - even for an Arsenal fan

    David Hirshey

  11. Red cards offer little value for money

    David Hirshey

    Wouldn't it have been nice if just this once, we could have watched two of the Premier League's best teams play a match that was decided by the 22 players on the field? Or am I simply being too demanding? No wonder Man City fans sent back those 90...

  12. Fearless Predictions for 2013

    David Hirshey

    Imagine if this time last year you had turned to the guy on the barstool next to you and said: "Hey pal, care to wager that Man City will win the Prem title on a 93rd-minute goal by Sergio Aguero on the final day of the season?" Or perhaps: "Wanna be...

  13. Trouble in Title Town?

    David Hirshey

    I definitely asked for it. Why didn't I simply roll out of bed at 8:29 for the 8:30am Super Sunday kickoff and watch the Liverpool-United smackdown in the lunatic isolation of my own home like any sane person? What possessed me to travel a half-ho...
