Time for reflection at LFC

By Danny Caro, January 12, 2012

It's been a tough few weeks for supporters of Liverpool Football Club. The unsavoury scenes witnessed last Friday made a bad situation even worse and it has been hard watching the club's proud name being dragged through the mud.

By Danny Caro, January 10, 2012

WINNER: Andy Burke (L'Equipe) - GOAL 2 - was Bergkamp-esque; a cross came in from the right, his first touch was to chest the ball round one defender, second touch round another before volleying into the roof of the net. Pure class!

JC MSFL Matchday 18 review

By Danny Caro, January 8, 2012

Brixton Old Boys A claimed result of the day as they sent holders Redbridge Jewish Care A tumbling out of the JC Cyril Anekstein Cup. In the league, Temple Fortune A ensured that Division One leaders Redbridge B suffered a new year hangover as players from the JC MSFL returned to action after a two-week winter break. There was also a first league win of the season for L'Equipe in Division Two.


Dozens on injury list but Lions still win

By Danny Caro, January 5, 2012

London Lions started 2012 with a bang after claiming a stunning 4-2 away win at Welwyn Garden City in the Molten Spartan South Midlands League.

Braces from defender Adam Myeroff and former Dagenham & Redbridge man Sam Sloma capped a fine display in a match where the Lions defied the odds.
