Redbridge have been red-hot too

By Danny Caro, December 13, 2013

There were some outstanding performances across the MGBSFL during November, so without further ado, I’d like to name my winners for the respective player and managerial awards.

de Hond was the true star

By Danny Caro, November 29, 2013

You could almost hear a pin drop when Marc de Hond took to the stage at the Maccabi GB Sports Awards the other night.

He gave an emotional account about how he went from a fit, happy-go-lucky youngster with a big sporting dream to rock bottom overnight following a spinal cord injury.

Ellie’s on course for win double

By Danny Caro, November 22, 2013

Not everyone likes the phrase ‘golden generation,’ just ask some of the leading lights from the England national football team. Overhyped and overpaid is how some would describe them. Perennial under-achievers in the eyes of many.

Forget the comparisons. Just be yourself, Scott

By Danny Caro, November 15, 2013

Lionel Messi, David Silva, Phillipe Coutinho and Santi Carzorla. That’s quite a list. Although it’s far too early to mention Scott Kashket in the same breath, that’s how high he should be aiming. The sky’s the limit for the boy from Chigwell right now.

Who needs Corrie when you have the Lions?

By Danny Caro, November 8, 2013

And so the managerial merry-go-round at Rowley Lane continues. It’s turning into the bit of a soap opera if you ask me and the question is, where will it all end?

The trials and tribulations of London Lions have been well-documented on these pages in recent weeks and it seems the problems have filtered down to the club’s Sunday A-team, who last season won the Cyril Anekstein Cup.

The battle of the Division Three predators is just goal-den

By Danny Caro, November 4, 2013

There’s a little broiges simmering in the lower echelons of the MGBSFL that is threatening to reach boiling point over the next week or two — all in the name of goals.

You see the prize of Golden Boot winner comes with much nachas and L’Equipe hotshot Richard Fogelman, one of the leading contenders, has started the mind game just days before he goes head-to-head with his nearest rival.

Is the price of success really all worth it?

By Danny Caro, October 25, 2013

It only takes one person to ruin it for the rest. It only takes one person to do something silly and tarnish a club’s reputation.

These are things that must be addressed at the club who find themselves at the centre of unsavoury backpage headlines this week.

A raised hand. A raised boot. It’s happened before. But a raised flag. What’s that all about?

I’ll commission you to get ‘one of our boys’ into the Prem

By Danny Caro, October 21, 2013

VMy recent conversation with Glenn Hoddle got me thinking … what about an Anglo-Jewry football commission whose brief is to identify a player who can make it in the Premier League. Now there’s an idea. Who’s in?

Time to reflect on Gold-en era

By Danny Caro, October 11, 2013

Only now will the enormity of what Tony Gold achieved at London Lions really hit home.

The club were this week picking up the pieces of the Gold-en era, one I’d compare to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United in Jewish football terms.

Gold took the club to a high level – its highest level in fact – and Jewish football may not see the like of him again.

Furman has been in a league of his own. Now for the big award ...

By Danny Caro, October 4, 2013

Anglo-Jewry’s finest sporting talent will be showcased at Maccabi GB’s biannual Sports Awards next month and I’d like to take this opportunity to pinpoint my favourites for the various accolades.
