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 ...

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.


Red-hot Redbridge impressed me

By Danny Caro, September 25, 2013

Not every manager will take positives out of a defeat, but Redbridge Jewish Care’s Jon Jacobs definitely can after Sunday’s match against Faithfold.

Several people thought it would be a case of men against boys, but the young second division outfit gave as good as they got.

"You'll get no sympathy from me." Those words must have been uttered thousands of times by sporting widows up and down the land.

"It's your own fault," continued Mrs C, adding, excuse the pun, insult to injury after I limped through the front door following my latest football comeback.


Vision, shmision. It’s futsal that holds the answer, Mr Dyke

By Danny Caro, September 12, 2013

Perhaps Greg Dyke was in the same room as Kyle Walker when he inhaled laughing gas. That’s the only assumption I can make after watching England’s performance against Ukraine the other night. It was quite depressing to see just how bad our so-called top players can be.


New names, new hope for year ahead

By Danny Caro, September 4, 2013

Israeli sport has taken a right old battering over the past year or so but at long last the clouds are starting to lift.

Julia Glushko’s run at the US Open has given the nation much hope following the poor showing at the London Olympics last year.

There’s also Yarden Gerbi who looks to be a real medal contender for the Rio Games in 2016. I doubt a world title has been won any faster.


11-a-side football in a bad way

By Danny Caro, August 30, 2013

Excitement, nerves and predictions. More often than not, that is what the beginning of any football season should be about. But not this time ...


Big Ben's still a class act

By Danny Caro, August 23, 2013

Ben Simons is not your stereotypical Spanish striker, but the Faithfold C marksmen certainly made his mark on a break in the Canary Islands.


Cash is the name of the game

By Danny Caro, August 19, 2013

While Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney continue to dominate the headlines in the summer transfer window, there have been some big deals going through in the MSFL.
