Five-star Faithfold C march on

By Danny Caro, November 12, 2010

'We need to learn how to win' was the summation from stand-in boss David Tropp. He's not wrong. Perhaps it's not surprising when you consider the Real Life start to the season that despite going 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 up, we still contrived to lose the game by two clear goals.

Wax Outshines Lench As Montana Come Back From The Dead

By Danny Caro, November 12, 2010

A hat-trick from the in-form Josh Hershman strengthened Brady's promotion hopes as they finished in seventh heaven against Redbridge B in Bushey.

Even with an injury depleted squad, Brady were simply exquisite. Missing a quadrant of starting players, Brady put Redbridge to the sword early on as a good Steven Field shot was parried right into the path of the flying Hershman who added another to his seasons tally with a simple tap in.

Levy delighted with Spurs despite losses

By Danny Caro, November 12, 2010

Daniel Levy, chairman of Spurs, was full of optimism despite the club announcing an overall financial loss in the last 12 months.

Spurs made a £6.6m loss after tax for the year ending 30 June 2010 but revenues rose by £119.8m.

Levy said: "This period has seen the club produce a record turnover and a 23 per cent increase in operating profit.

"We are benefiting now from our investment to date in the first-team squad."

Spurs' best-ever Premier League finish of fourth boosted broadcast revenues and ensured every one of its home matches was sold out

The life and times of the MSFL. You just couldn't make it up

By Danny Caro, November 11, 2010

I could write a book about the goings-on in the MSFL and perhaps one day I will. There are some great tales and characters to have come out of the world's biggest Jewish league, although I'm sure that some people wouldn't want them revealed, particularly not here.

Only last week, Sammy Carr, the North West Neasden chairman and B team manager, threatened to resign after his team were thrown out of the Cyril Anekstein Cup over unpaid fines.

Corin class cages Lions

By Danny Caro, November 11, 2010

Corin joined Yishai Last (2), Ben Kon (2), Saul Conway, Ari Last and Paul Bentley on the scoresheet as Hendon climbed to second in the table.

Jonny Blain, Daniel Sanford and top-scorer Jacob Gold steered North London Raiders A to a 3-2 victory over Lions A. Jon Green and Ben Joseph replied. Two goals from Ben Murrell helped Harmen A past Neasden B.

Rome wasn't built in a day

By Danny Caro, November 11, 2010

If you believe today’s papers, Avram Grant, the West Ham manager, has two games left to save his job.

That’s funny, because only last week, David Gold, co-owner at Upton Park, said that the first team boss “will be at the club for years”.

Another headline this morning is that Grant will be given a £10m pot for new signings should the Hammers still be in the relegation zone in January, when the transfer window reopens.

Now here’s an idea. Why doesn’t everyone just get of his back and let him get on with the job. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

By Danny Caro, November 9, 2010

A hat-trick from Matt Stock helped London Lions produce arguably their best performance of the season to crush Bedford Town Reserve 5-2 in the South Midlands League Division One.

The Lions produced a football feast that would have graced any higher level against an excellent Bedford side whose first team play in the Zamaretto Premier league.

Lions Pride in Family Cup Victory

By Danny Caro, November 9, 2010

London Maccabi Lions White booked their place in the second round of the Under 11’s League Cup after thumping Lions Blue 6-2.

On a cold crisp postmeridian in leafy Rowley Lane, as the low grise cumulus pirouetted née fox-trotted majestically akimbo the aquamarine skyline, Lions White produced a great display to beat the Blues, however the for large periods of the first half, the match was closer than the final scoreline suggested.

By Danny Caro, November 9, 2010

Lions hopes take a blow

By Danny Caro, November 8, 2010

London Lions reserves’ title hopes were dealt a blow as they were beaten 3-1 by Totternhoe in the South Midlands League Reserve Division Two.

On paper, this was a Lions side packed with ability, a side with attacking options and first team performers that gave much to be excited about in the pre-match build up. Sadly games are often played on far from perfect surfaces, not always with the greatest of officials and never, ever on paper.

Five-star Hasmo thump Menorah

By Danny Caro, November 5, 2010

Two goals from Jonti Arembad helped Hasmonean High beat Menorah Grammar 5-1 in Mill Hill.

In a match that was billed as a classic, the boys from Year 7 did not disappoint. Menorah came to play a proper game but in the end there was only one result with Hasmonean winning 5-1 at Barnet’s Copthall Sports Stadium.

Two goals from Jonti Arembad set Hasmonean on their way, Jamie Davila made it 3-0 at half time. Even with Hasmonean playing with the wind, Menorah could only muster one attack that Tomer Wieder dealt with effectively.

Gold says Grant’s job is safe “for years”

By Danny Caro, November 5, 2010

David Gold, co-owner at West Ham, has surprised supporters by telling them that manager Avram Grant will be in charge at Upton Park for “years”.

The Israeli took over from Gianfranco Zola in June but has struggled so far with the Hammers having claimed only one win in 10 matches.

But Gold has a vision of where the club will be, and Grant is in it.

"I'd be devastated if Avram Grant is not with us for three, four, five, six years," Gold said. ''We will remain absolutely resolute behind our manager.''

JC Monthly Awards - October

By Danny Caro, November 5, 2010

They say that strikers get all the glory. Not this time. While it would have been easy to pick North London Raiders hotshot Jacob Gold for our Player of the Month, the award goes to midfield maestro Adam Joselyn.

Gold currently tops the Premier Division scoring charts and while it would have been easy to pick him, the efforts of Raiders club captain Joselyn cannot be overlooked.
