Who said management was a walk in the park?

It was Adam Fegan who got me into MSFL management after injuries cut short my playing career.


The Bernstein-factor would go down a treat

By Danny Caro, October 6, 2011

FA chairman David Bernstein told me earlier this week that he's planning to visit Rowley Lane.

The phrase 'one-man team' is over-used and over-hyped. However, in the case of Maor Melikson, he faces a big decision over the next few days that could shape the future of Israel football.

Last week Melikson said that he would turn his back on the Israel national team after he was snubbed for two important Euro 2012 qualifiers against Greece and Croatia.

By Danny Caro, September 15, 2011

September is traditionally one of the busiest months on the Jewish sports calendar. My phone hasn't stopped ringing and, as my wife will support, there is hardly a spare date in my diary.

And, yet again, we are left to reflect on another abysmal qualifying campaign as Israel proved incapable of mixing it with Europe's finest.

Following victories over Latvia and Georgia, the glass looked half full.


Hoddle was the cherry on the cake

By Danny Caro, September 1, 2011

I've returned just in time for the start of the JC MSFL season following two sun-soaked weeks in the Costa del Sol.

There were lots of familiar faces in and around Marbella, including Laurence Swerner, the Team GB Masters and London Maccabi Lions striker, and Team GB golfer Stephen Schindler.


Israel almost off the map in the Premiership

By Danny Caro, August 11, 2011

It wasn't so long ago that the Premiership had a number of top Israeli players.


Hendon's new "Rolls Royce" could drive them to the top

By Danny Caro, August 4, 2011

The new MSFL season is gearing up to be one of the most exciting in recent years. There have been some interesting moves in the transfer market with Hendon United Sports Club this week raising the ante with the signing of GB gold medal star Ben Lauffer.


Look out! Our best is yet to come

By Danny Caro, July 28, 2011

Not so long ago, if someone had asked for my thoughts on the future of Jewish sport, I'd probably have looked to the heavens and said a little prayer.
