Caro's column

One last score to settle

By Danny Caro, May 30, 2014

We’ve known for some time now that Hendon United are the best Jewish men’s team in London, although Norstar London Raiders and Oakwood pushed them close.

No doubt, there will be plenty more l’chaims at Raleigh Close as the Hendon players toast their treble success, and boy do they deserve it.


Blatt's in a league of his own

By Danny Caro, May 23, 2014

There can be no greater feeling than walking into your boss’s office and shouting ‘show me the money’.

That probably didn’t cross David Blatt’s mind after Maccabi Tel Aviv’s heroic Euroleague success, but it appears he has bigger fish to fry following an achievement that few outside of Israel thought possible.


Let’s kick it out once and for all

By Danny Caro, May 16, 2014

Next week marks the 20th anniversary of Kick It Out – the organisation which campaigns against discrimination in football. However, the problem still lingers.


Hendon have excelled, but what exactly are they up against?

By Danny Caro, May 9, 2014

I’d like to play devils advocaat for a minute. Take nothing away from Hendon – their merciless march towards the treble is something they can be incredibly proud of.


Allianz Park will be rocking as I chase hat-trick

By Danny Caro, May 2, 2014

Okay, okay. I know I said never again after my injury-ridden experience at the 2001 London Marathon, but in the words of Steven Gerrard: "I’m ready to go again." Not a marathon this time. A fun run. And not just one run. Three. In a day.


Reds on the rampage

By Danny Caro, April 25, 2014

As a Liverpool fan, it seems quite apt that I spent Passover in the Promised Land.

As I’m sure you can appreciate, there are quite exciting times for Reds fans, even us London-based ones, who can feel the reverberations on Merseyside.

An 11-match winning run has put the Pool on the cusp of something quite special.


All set for a fitting finale

By Danny Caro, April 23, 2014

Two of the MGBSFL’s top talents will be on show in a super Sunday showdown as Redbridge Jewish Care B and FC Team C go head-to-head.


From West Ham to Wingate. David’s as passionate as ever ...

By Danny Caro, April 8, 2014

He strolled into the room like the Pied Piper, and everyone followed. Smiling from ear to ear, it was as though he was walking into his barmitzvah. The room warmed up almost immediately. He was greeted with hugs and l’chaims as his Maccabi football family slapped him on the back for a job well done.


Yossi can be Beckham’s Miami vice

By Danny Caro, March 28, 2014

In June last year, Yossi Benayoun revealed that he would love to finish his career in America. He described a move to the MLS as one of his "favourite options" before signing a loan deal with QPR.


Could it be advantage Hendon?

By Danny Caro, March 21, 2014

And then there were two … the best two teams, according to the league table, which never lies. Although it’s too early to make any cup final predictions, the touch-paper has been well and truly lit by David Garbacz. And unlike David Moyes, I’m sure he knows what he’s doing.
