Super Sunday will really separate the men from the boys

By Danny Caro, April 17, 2015

It’s impossible not to dress up what can only be described as a bumper programme of league and cup action in London on Sunday.

It all gets under way at Hazelwood Recreation Ground as Norstar London Raiders A go in search of the point they need to clinch what would be a first-ever MGBSFL Premier Division title against strugglers North West Neasden.

Hendon needed a challenge. Now they have really got one

By Danny Caro, April 13, 2015

Having monopolised the Maccabi football scene for the past few seasons, there’s a danger Hendon United Sports Club A could finish the season empty-handed.

Less than 24 hours after the defeat against Norstar London Raiders A, David Garbacz’s men got the Peter Morrison Trophy draw they didn’t want, Maccabi London Lions Spartans.

Israel knows who to stop. The question is how to stop them

By Danny Caro, March 27, 2015

When you go into a battle, especially one on the sports field, it’s always advisable to be wary of the biggest threats. And that might just be one advantage Israel have right now, ahead of the matches against Wales and Belgium.

Pressure gets to the best of us, David

By Danny Caro, March 20, 2015

No title race is ever complete without a moaning manager. From the Premiership to the MGBSFL, it just adds to the drama.

David Garbacz guarantees five-star box-office entertainment in my online previews and reviews, but it appears that the pressure is finally getting to him after his troops failed to deliver.

Rain stopped play, apparently, but there’s no rush to finish

By Danny Caro, March 10, 2015

North-west London came to a grinding halt on Sunday as cup final fever, and a match at the Emirates, gripped the capital. Only four matches went ahead in the MGBSFL. Some were called off due to waterlogged pitches, but I believe the lure of the aforementioned fixtures stopped other clubs from going that extra mile to get their games played.

The season starts now for big boys

By Danny Caro, March 2, 2015

Three titles done and dusted by February. A little odd, some might say. But the season is far from over… the best is yet to come.

Wizard Wolfson made to feel right at home in Hong Kong

By Danny Caro, February 6, 2015

The pulling power of the JC never ceases to amaze. Just a couple of weeks after I reported that Jamie Wolfson of Norstar London Raiders was going to live Hong Kong, I bring news of a big-money move.

No sooner had Wolfson started to settle down to life in the Far East than did Hong Kong Maccabi FC flex their muscles in the January transfer window and move for the wing wizard.

Wolfson bows out on a high

By Danny Caro, January 23, 2015

The MGBSFL has lost one of its finest talents after it was confirmed that Jamie Wolfson is moving to Hong Kong.

The Norstar London Raiders winger is one of the most naturally gifted players in the league and his departure is a blow to the team’s treble hopes, especially at such a critical stage of the season.

Some want Luzon out the door before a ball has been kicked

By Danny Caro, January 16, 2015

Less than 24 hours after his appointment, it seems the jury is already out on Guy Luzon. Reports of reservations amongst the players and fans were doing the rounds, with supporters taking to Twitter, saying the club is “ruined” and describing the decision as “pathetic”.

My ones to watch in 2015

By Danny Caro, January 9, 2015

The turn of the year brings with it renewed hope and expectation for Jewish sportsmen and women across the globe.

The European Maccabi Games is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown as far as 2015 goes, with athletes, coaches and managers alike cranking up their preparations for the historic event in Berlin.
