By Danny Caro, March 27, 2012

It’s been a tough week for so many people. Truth be told, I almost fell out of love with football over the incident involving Bolton’s Fabrice Muamba. It really hit me for six and I’ve been feeling flat all week.

A real roller-coaster of emotions

By Danny Caro, March 1, 2012

Last Sunday was a day I won't forget in a hurry. It was something of an emotional roller-coaster as I experienced the highs and lows of the beautiful game.

My morning ended in heartbreak as North London Raiders A were undone by the brilliance of Greg Corin.

Lord Coe is an example to us all

By Danny Caro, February 23, 2012

I'm probably one of the few people out there without a ticket for the London Olympics. On the same note, I've also spent a large part of the week trying to obtain a ticket for Sunday's Carling Cup final at Wembley.
