Arsenal's trophy-less misery begins early this season after Man Utd defeat

It was another big, big weekend in the English Premier League, Anthony Richardson recaps the best and worst of it.

What a shame that Lionel Messi instead of Danny Welbeck wasn't at the Emirates to bury one of the 187 chances Arsenal had against Manchester United on Saturday.

Come to think of it, ex-future Arsenal legend Cristiano Ronaldo would have probably done something novel -- like, you know, scored -- on the one vs. one from six yards out that Jack Wilshere sent straight into David de Gea's hands.

Best of Premier League Week 12 Ratings and Reaction

Louis van Gaal's new favorite word is apt after Man United lose to Man City

Highlights of Manchester City's derby win vs. United.


In case you failed to notice, Louis van Gaal has fallen in love with a new word. Rather than his usual self-aggrandizing use of "genius," the United manager has whipped out his latest favorite in back-to-back games to describe the actions of his players in decisive moments. He first unveiled his verbal darling last week against Chelsea when Robin van Persie scored a dramatic equalizer at the death and was so overcome with emotion that he doffed his jersey in celebration, a gesture that earned...

Manchester United roll back the clock with 'Fergie Time' draw vs. Chelsea

Relive Sunday's Premier League action as Everton secured a comfortable 3-1 victory over Burnley, Newcastle shocked Tottenham and Robin van Persie salvaged a point for Manchester United against Chelsea.

Greenwich Mean Time took quite a beating Sunday. First, the clocks were set back by an hour all over England -- everywhere, that is, except at Old Trafford, where the calendar rolled back by, oh, some two and a half years.

The game between Manchester United and Chelsea had all the trappings of Groundhog Day, circa 2012. There were the two managers, one egotistical mentor and one preening disciple, making a big show of their mutual respect and admiration with no less than four bro hugs.

There was...

Arsene Wenger shows his grit vs. Chelsea but the Gunners fail to follow

The ESPN FC crew discuss Arsene Wenger's and Jose Mourinho's heated exchange during their league clash, and who might win in a hypothetical fight.

Jose Mourinho may be the greatest manager since the gods first breathed life into mud, but he is completely wrong about one thing: Arsene Wenger is not a "specialist in failure." Because the Frenchman absolutely succeeded in winning Sunday's hotly contested Sideline Shovefest.

Of course, Wenger did fail at the little things -- from winning the game to even seeing his team score at the Bridge -- but he'll always have that beauty of a shove in his imaginary trophy case.

You'd think that by now,...

'Derby Day Dread' hits Arsenal, Liverpool in disappointing draws

The ESPN FC's crew review the weekend results in the Premier League and lament the lack of drama in the latest edition of the North London derby.

On the face of it, Saturday was set up to be delightful for Liverpool and Arsenal fans. The sun was out, the sky was blue and their teams were about to play a fun game of whack-a-mole with local rivals who pop out of their holes twice a year until their tortured psyches scream, "We're not worthy."

Yet as I dragged my bleary-eyed self to the bar of New York's Football Factory at 7:30 a.m., I was filled with an uneasy feeling that I was pretty sure had nothing to do with the two cheese-slathered...

A big win and their rivals' eye-opening failures gave Arsenal a super weekend

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Alejandro Moreno react to Manchester United's 5-3 loss against Leicester City.

As Premier League weekends go, it was one for the ages. I'd like to dip the past 48 hours in Lucite and place them on my mantelpiece next to my daughter's graduation photo and my signed pair of (slightly used) Thierry Henry compression shorts. Simply put, it was more fun than an Arsenal fan is allowed to have.

And I'm not just referring to those 179 seconds of pure Gooner ecstasy that resulted in a 3-0 thrashing of Aston Villa. The Claret and Blue started the day in second place before being struck...
