Lions let off the hook again

By Danny Caro, April 12, 2013

Consistency. That’s all the players and managers from the Maccabi League ask for. Consistency from the referees for 90 minutes on a Sunday morning and consistency from league officials when it comes to key decisions at management committee level.


LFA Cup success would be icing on the cake for Faithfold

By Danny Caro, April 4, 2013

I was there when Faithfold A saw their hopes of making history fall through their fingers in 2002 and I’m looking forward to my return to Wingate & Finchley as the boys in green and white look to make history on super Sunday.


Fab four in a league of their own

By Danny Caro, March 29, 2013

And then there were four. Few would’ve predicted the semi-final line-up for the Peter Morrison Trophy a couple of months ago and the final destination of the cup this year is anyone’s guess.


Damned if he did, damned if he didn’t. Andy just can’t win

By Danny Caro, March 22, 2013

If Arsene Wenger could turn back the clock, I’m confident he’d have fielded stronger, more experienced teams in recent cup matches. After all, hindsight is a wonderful thing in football.


Marks has taken Camden Park to another level overnight

By Danny Caro, March 15, 2013

Even the best managers have fallen victim to the dreaded Manager of the Month curse, but Camden Park boss Josh Marks is showing he is a cut above the rest as he leads his team into unchartered waters this weekend.


What would you give to go to Israel?

By Danny Caro, March 1, 2013

It’s virtually impossible to put a price on what the Maccabiah Games means to most Jewish sportsmen and women, but the $1m donation from Stuart Weitzman is simply jaw-dropping.

For some, the cost of the Games has spiralled out of control and one can only salute the generosity of the man who has made his millions in the shoe industry. What a mensch.


Pot, kettle, black. It’s all going off in the MSFL after ref debate

By Danny Caro, February 25, 2013

February 18, the day the touch paper was lit with three words - pot, kettle, black.

Forget Fergie and Wenger, forget Fergie and Rafa or even Fergie and Mancini, the mind games have well and truly started in terms of the JC MSFL title race.


The best team won but I couldn’t believe they parked the bus

By Danny Caro, February 15, 2013

My return to Sunday football management ended in disappointment and utter frustration last weekend.

Having agreed to take charge of my son’s team for the day, I was quietly confident the boys would come away with the right result, despite the absence of one of our key players.


Furman deserves a slice of luck

By Danny Caro, February 8, 2013

Stuart Pearce, Chris Waddle, Gareth Southgate, David Beckham, John Terry, Steven Gerrard, Ashley Cole and Wayne Rooney. It would be fair to describe that as an illustrious list that Dean Furman has now joined.


Spare a thought for Corney

By Danny Caro, February 1, 2013

Who’d be a manager … but more to the point, who’d be a chairman? It’s been quite a week for Oldham Athletic’s Simon Corney, you could say. Beating Liverpool was beyond his wildest dreams and now his team has a chance to claim the scalp of another Premier League giant in the shape of Everton.
