  1. 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 ...

  2. 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...

  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. 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, ...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. Hirshey: Gift-giving season comes early for Arsenal fans

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

  12. 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...

  13. Manchester City plays

    David Hirshey

    Remember back in the good ol' days of L.A. gang wars, when some guy would foolishly get lost in a neighborhood controlled by the Bloods wearing a blue T-shirt that represented the Crips and the locals would beat a fashion lesson into him? Well, I wa...

  14. 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...

  15. The Prem's sweet pain returns

    David Hirshey

    Three soccer fans are walking down the street on a beautiful summer afternoon. The first one says, "I'm depressed. This was supposed to be the dawn of a new era at the Lane." The second one responds, "You're unhappy? How about losing two of you...
