  3. Wenger Takes All: Hirshey's FA Cup Diary

    David Hirshey

    LONDON -- In the end, my voice was gone, my back was in spasms, my face was awash in sweat and my glasses were somewhere in the row behind me. God, I felt great. It was like, oh, I don't know, nine years -- OK, 3,283 days to be exact, but who's...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Liverpool's crying shame as they collide with Chelsea's bus

    David Hirshey

    There were so many tears shed in Liverpool this weekend that I wouldn't be surprised if the Mersey River went from fresh to salt water. First, the blue side of the city decided that it was much more sporting to kick the ball into their own net as Eve...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. The King reigns again in New York City

    David Hirshey

    Even now, at 73, with an artificial hip and a pinched nerve in his back, Edson Arantes do Nascimento can still glide through packed defenses. His movements are more deliberate than those from his storied pomp, but the muscle memory remains intact, en...

  9. 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...

  10. Has Arsene Wenger stayed too long at Arsenal?

    David Hirshey

    I once asked Arsene Wenger if he had a Plan B going into high-stakes away matches. Before deigning to descend from the high moral ground at Arsenal's training center, he looked at me as if I was something that had just been scraped off the blood- and...

  11. 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...

  13. 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, ...

  14. 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...

  15. Arsenal more than ready to take on Bayern

    David Hirshey

    Let's give a big North London willkommen to Bayern Munich, bullies of the Bundesliga, reigning champions of Europe, and, as the German tabloid Bild screamed after their last visit to the Emirates, "menschenfresser" or maneaters. Is there an Arsen...

  16. Did Arsenal peak too soon?

    David Hirshey

    I think we can all agree that Shakespeare was a pretty smart guy. Clever writer, cute beard, brainy fella. So when he complained about "giddy fortune's furious, fickle wheel," I should have listened. I shouldn't have plopped down my entire life's sav...
