Never forget the Rachmanus spirit

By Danny Caro, January 17, 2014

VIt never ceases to amaze what happens to some of the world’s finest sportsmen when they cross the thin white line. And even though the prizes on offer are considerably smaller in the amateur game, unsavoury events take place regularly. All in the name of victory and pride.


Lions dream team back in place. Now it’s advantage Takeley

By Danny Caro, January 10, 2014

It was only a matter of time until someone came in for Tony Gold. I’ll be the first to admit I hadn’t heard of Takeley FC before the appointment, but it’s clear this move is a win-win for both parties. A match made in heaven.


My sporting highlights of 2013 (in a nutshell!)

By Danny Caro, January 7, 2014

2013 was jam-packed with Jewish sporting highlights – even if none made it on to the BBC Sports Personality of the Year show. Here’s my A-Z of the teams and individuals who had the X-factor

Or Aviram – becomes first Israeli to win Ten Pin Bowling World Championship

David Bernstein - steps down as FA chairman



It’s a win-win-win for Corney & co

By Danny Caro, December 20, 2013

Liverpool in the cup once is nice. Twice is like a dream come true. But three times in 25 months? Get serious!


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.
