  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 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...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  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. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Hirshey: Mourinho happy to have landed at 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 ki...

  11. 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...

  12. 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...

  13. 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 ...

  14. 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 ...

  15. 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...
