  1. Wenger Takes All: Hirshey's FA Cup Diary

    David Hirshey

    LONDON -- In the end, my voice was gone, my back was in spasms, my face was awash in sweat and my glasses were somewhere in the row behind me. God, I felt great. It was like, oh, I don't know, nine years -- OK, 3,283 days to be exact, but who's...

  2. And then there were two in the Prem title race

    David Hirshey

    After some 360 games and almost as many different league leaders, here's the one thing we know for sure: nothing. This season has been so wildly unpredictable that I just phoned in a last-second Ladbrokes bet on Sunderland to win the league. But ...

  3. Liverpool's crying shame as they collide with Chelsea's bus

    David Hirshey

    There were so many tears shed in Liverpool this weekend that I wouldn't be surprised if the Mersey River went from fresh to salt water. First, the blue side of the city decided that it was much more sporting to kick the ball into their own net as Eve...

  5. The Big Red Machine grinds toward glory

    David Hirshey

    If there were any justice in the world, then Liverpool would win the league this year and newly minted Harvard Business School lecturer Sir Alex Ferguson would be forced to teach a course entitled Building A Championship Team The Scouser Way. Of c...

  6. The King reigns again in New York City

    David Hirshey

    Even now, at 73, with an artificial hip and a pinched nerve in his back, Edson Arantes do Nascimento can still glide through packed defenses. His movements are more deliberate than those from his storied pomp, but the muscle memory remains intact, en...

  8. John Terry's error turns the Prem title tables

    David Hirshey

    When you think of the world's most beautiful sights, a few come immediately to mind. Paris at twilight. The Grand Canyon at sunrise. A Spurs fan sobbing pretty much any time. But all those exquisite images pale compared to Saturday's awe-inspirin...

  9. A special letter to the Special One

    David Hirshey

    Dearest Special One -- I know I haven't always been your biggest cheerleader over the years but I've got to say, you really impressed me on Saturday at Craven Cottage. For the first 45 minutes, your team looked like it had left its confidence, ...

  10. Will Chelsea lose their Prem handle?

    David Hirshey

    Everyone has his own definition of hell. For Jean-Paul Sartre, it was other people. For Kim Kardashian, it's being ignored. My personal inferno is being surrounded by a bouncing mob of delirious, beer-drenched, kitted-out Chelsea fans raising their v...

  11. Fearless predictions for 2014

    David Hirshey

    Luis Suarez will get banned, Clint Dempsey will need a hand and the team that will win the league is... Doesn't it seem like only yesterday that Sir Alex was prowling the technical area, furiously chewing his magic gum and pointing to his watch as...

  12. Arsenal's Etihad wobble shows their title nerves

    David Hirshey

    On the one hand -- his right one -- Jack Wilshere brandishing a solitary, centrally-located finger toward the Manchester City fans was certainly an obscene, immature and costly gesture that will undoubtedly result in a one-game ban for the Arsenal mi...

  13. 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...

  15. Watching Chelsea with the future of Roman's empire

    David Hirshey

    You want to meet an eclectic menagerie of people? Go to a soccer bar. For instance, several years ago, Sean Connery walked into my chosen pub in the middle of an FA Cup game between Manchester United and Portsmouth. He was wearing a hat and sunglasse...

  16. 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...
