  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. Has Arsene Wenger stayed too long at Arsenal?

    David Hirshey

    I once asked Arsene Wenger if he had a Plan B going into high-stakes away matches. Before deigning to descend from the high moral ground at Arsenal's training center, he looked at me as if I was something that had just been scraped off the blood- and...

  5. 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...

  6. 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, ...

  7. 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...

  8. Arsenal more than ready to take on Bayern

    David Hirshey

    Let's give a big North London willkommen to Bayern Munich, bullies of the Bundesliga, reigning champions of Europe, and, as the German tabloid Bild screamed after their last visit to the Emirates, "menschenfresser" or maneaters. Is there an Arsen...

  9. Did Arsenal peak too soon?

    David Hirshey

    I think we can all agree that Shakespeare was a pretty smart guy. Clever writer, cute beard, brainy fella. So when he complained about "giddy fortune's furious, fickle wheel," I should have listened. I shouldn't have plopped down my entire life's sav...

  10. Will Mourinho come to regret selling Juan Mata?

    David Hirshey

    Damn you, Special One. This was supposed to be my weekend off. I had scheduled a tasty Saturday brunch with the part of the family that I can actually stand and that can actually stand me (it's only one person). Friday night had seen Arsenal bust ...

  11. Mourinho counting his lucky stars for picking Chelsea over United...

    David Hirshey

    For 15 glorious minutes on Sunday at Stamford Bridge, Manchester United fans briefly forgot the grim reality of their Premier League fortunes and made believe that all was right with the world. As their team attacked the Chelsea defense with the ...

  12. Arsenal tell Tottenham to 'mind the new gap'

    David Hirshey

    Far be it for me to gloat, but all things considered, 2014 is off to quite the flying start. First, Super Nicky Bendtner scores the winner for Arsenal against Cardiff. I didn't dream that, right? Because in his honor, I'm now wearing my mustache with...

  13. 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...

  14. Jose Mourinho rains on Arsenal's parade

    David Hirshey

    LONDON -- I'm beginning to think that London has it in for me. You see, I had come 3,000 miles to endure a night of biblical conditions -- lashing rain, gusting winds, bone-chilling cold, and referee Mike Dean -- all in the name of supporting my ...

  15. 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...

  16. More proof of the Prem's 'apocalypse' season

    David Hirshey

    From an early age, I was trained to keep an eye out for signs of the approaching apocalypse. Fire belching from the sea, dogs and cats tongue-kissing with impunity and, most alarming of all, Arsenal winning every week. Maybe that's why I detect a ...
