  1. Football, punk as a way of life

    James Martin

    We all come to football for different reasons. It may be as simple as geography: You support your local club. Or perhaps your maddening devotion is passed down through generations in your family. The equation takes on a layer of complexity if you gr...

  2. Will Gunners blow race for Champions League?

    James Martin and James Tyler

    As the days of Premier League football continue to dwindle for another season, reality sinks in. There's less to play for and more teams clearly eyeing pints on the beach. Some literally go through the motions -- you only had to watch the abject perf...

  3. Methodical approach for 5-star DE Garrett

    Sam Khan Jr.

    When it comes to how he approaches athletics and everything that comes with it, Arlington (Texas) James Martin defensive end Myles Garrett is methodical. The five-star defensive end does things his way -- and not in a bad way. The 6-foot-5, 247...

  4. Spurs stage one of the season's most impressive comebacks

    James Martin

    For 75 minutes, Chelsea and Arsenal must have been loving what they saw. Manchester City was in cruise control, leading 1-0 over Tottenham while the sun-drenched pitch at White Hart Lane betrayed the sense of gloom among the home fans. With just one ...

  5. Man City, Chelsea put on a great Cup semifinal

    James Martin

    After watching Stoke City sink ever closer to the relegation zone earlier in the day -- their turgid 2-0 loss at the Britannia to Manchester United was a welcome sight for some -- the FA Cup semifinal between Chelsea and Manchester City was the perfe...

  6. Manchester City restores a bit of pride with win over United

    James Martin

    Right before kickoff between Manchester United and Manchester City, Sir Alex Ferguson said that derby games can turn out to be stinkers. He was stating the obvious, as they often do fail to live up to our expectations. But given the attacking intent ...

  7. Trying to get stoked for Stoke and other existential questions

    James Martin

    On Saturday night, after watching a bunch of football matches, I sat down to have some beers and finally watch "Skyfall." I'd always meant to see it in the theaters, but football viewing tends to monopolize your time during the arduous nine-month sea...

  8. Dark times for Arsenal after loss to Spurs

    James Martin

    In rock 'n' roll, hitting rock bottom is straight forward. Booze, drugs and reckless behavior of all manner conspire to send the ailing star to the brink. Paint-by-numbers self-destruction, it was immortalized to hilarious effect by John C. Reilly in...

  9. Ruthless Man United dent Everton's European dreams

    James Martin

    Is this where the dream ends? Was the result at Old Trafford on Sunday the final reality check in this quickly dwindling season? Can the points be made up with only 12 matches left and a rather difficult fixture schedule ahead? No, this has nothi...

  10. Inspired Theo Walcott gives Gunners well-earned draw vs. Liverpoo...

    James Martin

    When Liverpool went up 2-0 at Arsenal, the thought crossed my mind that Brendan Rodgers might not use those infamous envelopes (you know, for the three players he will cut from Liverpool Football Club at the end of the season, realty show-style) and ...

  11. Chelsea stay 'relevant' in London derby vs. Arsenal

    James Martin

    Chelsea versus Arsenal was billed as a battle for relevance. Not for the Premier League title race, mind you, as that's all about the two Manchester clubs, but a shot at finishing in a Champions League spot at the end of the season. Rafa Benitez ...

  12. Manchester United win a tale of two halves

    James Martin

    When Manchester United lost the league title on goal difference last season, people criticized them for not being a "vintage" United team. This time around, from some quarters, the verbal barbs have been sharper -- to the point of saying this could b...

  13. Manchester United win thriller over Newcastle

    James Martin

    Manchester United's 4-3 win against Newcastle at Old Trafford was a microcosm of the Red Devils' season: Shocking defending, goals galore, uncertain goalkeeping and an irate Sir Alex Ferguson. For the 11th time this season, United went behind, but fo...

  14. Hardly getting over it

    James Martin

    In "Back to the Future," that classic '80s flick, our protagonist Marty McFly had to find a way to change the past or he'd cease to exist in the future. We knew this because poor Marty, who had time-travelled back to the 1950s, had a picture of himse...

  15. United defeat City in a display of blood and guts

    James Martin

    If you didn't know City versus United was a big match, Tom Cruise's presence at Etihad Stadium made sure there was no mistaking the gravitas of the day. This is TOM CRUISE, on hand to shill for his new flick "Jack Reacher," which is about ... oh, who...

  16. The moody Blues tour continues

    James Martin

    There's a reason therapy sessions are held in private. No one wants to see the angst, the melodrama, the irrationality and the constant whinging. Yet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, the home supporters were having their own very public session in which...
