Take it from me, Chigwell will win the Masters

By Danny Caro, January 29, 2016

It felt as though I was lining up against the firing squad on duty for Faithfold in the Maccabi Masters Football League on Sunday.


Shafron deserves 10/10 for chutzpah

By Danny Caro, January 15, 2016

Very few eyebrows were raised when Guus Hiddink was appointed Chelsea boss for the second time. There has certainly been an upturn in results and body language on the pitch. Even Diego Costa has started scoring again.


Maccabi giants ready to stand up and be counted

By Danny Caro, January 8, 2016

The quarter-finals of Cyril Anekstein Cup take centre stage this weekend as MGBSFL players return following a two-week winter break.

There are two stand-out ties as North London Raiders A host Harmen while Hendon United Sports Club A plays Redbridge Jewish Care A. I can see home advantage holding the key, while the other two matches are easier to predict.


Gershfield is the jewel in the crown for Maccabi League

By Danny Caro, December 4, 2015

It’s been quite a memorable few weeks for James Gershfield – my MGBSFL Player of the Month for November.

His goals have helped propel Harmen into genuine title contenders and even though he wasn’t 100 per cent fit on Sunday, he still had too much quality for Hendon United.


Brave Fortune had 10 menshes of the match

A week is a long time in football.


It won't be the year of the underdog

By Danny Caro, November 12, 2015

You can't beat the buzz of a cup upset – in any standard of football. Be it the World Cup, FA Cup or even the Cyril Anekstein Cup, the little guy beating the big guy and defying the odds is what sport is all about.


Red-hot Reiss in a league of his own

By Danny Caro, November 9, 2015

October featured a number of eye-catching performances in the MGBSFL, but no-one was as consistent as Reiss Mogilner — my Player of the Month.

The Brady Maccabi hot-shot registered three consecutive hat-tricks in a real purple patch that accounted for Scrabble FC, North London Raiders B and SPEC FC.


The Football League is now the place to be if you are Jewish

By Danny Caro, October 26, 2015

It’s refreshing to see that the number of Jewish boys in the Football League is on the rise.

There are two at Wycombe Wanderers in Joe Jacobson, 28, one of the first names on the teamsheet, and Ryan Sellars, 21, while Nick Blackman, 25, at Reading, whose has a Jewish mum and once played at the Maccabiah Games in Israel, is having a superb campaign.


Richler Kleiman is the hottest property in town

By Danny Caro, October 8, 2015

The opening few weeks of the MGBSFL season saw some fantastic individual performances, but the goal-scoring achievements of Oakwood B hotshot Jacob Richler Kleiman earned him my first MGBSFL Player of the Month award.

The former Manchester Maccabi marksman hit the target eight times in September to propel his Oakwood team to second in Division One.


Rovers demise a real wake-up call

By Danny Caro, October 8, 2015

It’s amazing how an empire can collapse in Sunday morning football. The warning bells were ringing at London Rovers when Jeremy Brown stepped down as manager but no-one could’ve predicted just how quickly they would fail.
