  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. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. 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 ...

    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 ...

  6. Hirshey: Mourinho happy to have landed at Chelsea over United

    David Hirshey

  7. 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...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  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...

  12. 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...

  14. Thrifty United and Arsenal heading in different directions

    David Hirshey

    Take a deep breath and repeat after me: It's only one game. A single 90-minute match would not have been sufficient for Arsenal's new dream team -- Julio Cesar, Sven Bender, Gonzalo Higuain, Wayne Rooney, Luis Suarez and Luiz Gustavo -- to settle in,...

  15. Revived Cosmos get a second chance at a first impression

    David Hirshey

    Nostalgia can be a wondrous thing. You can bathe in its sepia-tinted glow and revel in the sweet memories of a time when the world seemed more innocent -- and Luis Suarez hadn't bitten anyone yet. But it can also be a curse. Admit it, those seven...

  16. David HIrshey on what he'll miss about Fergie time

    David Hirshey

    As someone who has been following English soccer since Vinnie Jones grabbed Paul Gascoigne in a place that is generally considered impolite, I can't help but admire Sir Alex Ferguson's staggering achievement as the manager of Manchester United: 26 ye...
