  1. The Premier League's Game of Dethrones

    David Hirshey

    Whoever wrote the script for this season's epic title race sure has a twisted sense of drama and humor. It feels as if it were dreamed up by the love child of George R.R. Martin and Lady Gaga. I mean, of all the teams that figured to play a decis...

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. Rampant Rooney comes to Man United's rescue

    David Hirshey

    Lest we forget -- and there's at least one cranky old Scot who can't and won't -- it was only this past summer that Wayne Rooney was the belle at the debutante ball, fluttering his eyelashes at Chelsea and even playing footsie with Arsenal, the club ...

  6. 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...

  7. Reversals of fortune for Arsenal, Spurs

    David Hirshey

    So now we know that the going rate for sixth place in the Premier League is a mere $160 million -- or, rather, the current bill of fare that Spurs have lavished this summer in their futile quest to do something they haven't accomplished in 17 years: ...

  8. Here's to the sore winners

    David Hirshey

    There is no more beautiful sight in all of soccer. Nothing that makes the heart soar higher, the pulse race faster, the mustache go more a-quiver or the beer spray across the room with more joyous gusto. And on Sunday at the Football Factory in Ne...

  9. The choke's on ... who?

    David Hirshey

    It's not fair. Every Christmas, I put money into the Salvation Army kettle in spite of that incredibly annoying bell they ring. Every Arbor Day I always plant a tree -- or at least sit under one sipping a beer. And every July 4, I donate my mustache ...

  10. Bale and farewell, Gareth?

    David Hirshey

    I admit it. I looked out of my New York City window on Saturday morning, saw what looked like Nemo-geddon, hit the snooze button, knocked over my half-drunk glass of Stella, and went back to dreaming of an English team winning the Champions League. ...

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

    David Hirshey

    Until Sunday, I could only think of two reasons I would leap off my bar stool to celebrate a Spurs goal. One involves an electric cattle prod connecting with my nether regions. The other concerns a dream I've had in which Jennifer Lawrence rocks a To...

  12. An Arsenal adieu for Adebayor

    David Hirshey

    LONDON -- "Hey Ade," I shouted to Emmanuel Adebayor, calling him by the name favored by his old friends and older enemies. "You stink, mate." It was 20 minutes before the start of the North London derby at the Emirates and I was 10 yards away from...

    David Hirshey
