Omri’s an example to us all

By Danny Caro, May 24, 2013

In a week when hundreds of young Jewish footballers up and down the country are having trials for new clubs, it’s quite fitting that Omri Altman has been given the nod by Fulham.

Sadly, some of these boys will be told they haven’t made the grade and/or are not good enough. In essence, thanks, but no thanks.

Ready to go that extra mile

By Danny Caro, May 17, 2013

As many of you will know, rarely has a day gone by that I didn’t mention an injury, niggle or pain since completing the 2001 London Marathon.

Well I can confirm that three operations down the line, and with my latest sporting comeback complete, that will all stop following what I can only describe as an uplifting, no inspiring, meeting with Israel’s most famous Paralympian.

Winning isn't everything

By Danny Caro, May 10, 2013

I've been inundated with emails about teams winning various football competitions over the past few weeks, but the cup isn’t so full for quite everyone. The season is almost over so it’s with great sadness I report the demise of two clubs.

It’s all change at the top

By Danny Caro, May 3, 2013

Lions let off the hook again

By Danny Caro, April 12, 2013

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.
