The boys are backing down

By Danny Caro, January 13, 2011

Danny Reuben, the head of London Maccabi Lions’ Sunday section, hit out at the club’s younger players after he was forced to pull its B team from the league.

Reuben cited a lack of commitment and enthusiasm as part of the reason the team had to fold. He said: “At the beginning of the season we were confident we had enough players. We desperately wanted to keep the side going and this is not a decision we have taken lightly. We did everything to keep the team alive.”

Star qualities will drive Maccabi sport to another level

By Danny Caro, January 13, 2011

This year looks set to be a tough one for amateur sport. With numbers declining in competitive football and cricket nationwide, it is no surprise that the MSFL has lost a third team.

Maccabi GB have picked a good 'un in Michael Ziff. Once he takes over as chairman from Stuart Greenberg, he will have to address some big issues. The pair will work closely during the next few months to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible.

A sporting all-rounder, Ziff is passionate about driving more young people into Jewish cricket with the ultimate goal of setting up a Jewish super-club.

Scott Parker: We’re right behind Avram Grant

By Danny Caro, January 13, 2011

The West Ham players are right behind manager Avram Grant, according to midfielder Scott Parker.

The Israeli masterminded Tuesday night’s 2-1 Carling Cup first leg victory over Birmingham amid continued speculation about his future.

One game away from a final at Wembley, unbeaten in seven and with key players returning from Wembley, Parker says that the team is on the up.

Parker said: “Avram's demeanour seems quite relaxed and chilled out. I think that filters down to the players.

"The lads are fighting as much as the gaffer is fighting. We're all in the same corner.

Majestic Martyn helps Real Life make their point

By Danny Caro, January 11, 2011

They huffed and they puffed - but Real Life still could not chalk up a first league win of the season in a ding dong battle against Zig Zag in the mud at Edgwarebury.

In many ways they WEre indebted to goalkeeper Will Martyn who pulled off three world-class saves - twice in the first half and once in the second - that meant the spoils were shared. And they'll be thankful for the contribution of Rob Greene who popped up with two quality goals in the second half.

South Manchester 1st slumps

By Danny Caro, January 11, 2011

South Manchester slumped to third from bottom as Miam Miam extended their unbeaten run with victory with a 3-1 win in a bizarre contest.

Playing their first match in seven weeks against opponents that had lost three times in three seasons, South knew that they would have to bring their A-game to the table.

Miam Miam started with nine players and this seemed to unnerve South who were lucky not to go behind on 15 minutes but a fine save from Jody Marks kept the scores level.

JC Olim League review

By Danny Caro, January 10, 2011

A wonder goal from Yoni Sidi helped England FC maintain their 100 per cent record as they edged past Jerusalem in the battle between last season's top two finishers.

The meeting in Modiin saw England were looking to protect an perfect record against a Jerusalem side starting to find form at the right time.

Jerusalem were well marshalled by Dan Kosky and league veteran Danny Newman who were both outstanding at keeping the England team to little more than half chances and long shots in the first half.

Kayal: I'll take the plaudits but I'm no Neil Lennon yet

By Danny Caro, January 6, 2011

Anyone who saw Sunday's Old Firm derby would've been impressed by the performance of Biram Kayal. The Israeli would be the first to admit that one swallow does not make a summer but it was a hugely encouraging display from one so young.

He did everything it said on the packet, according to manager Neil Lennon, and already the comparisons between the player and manager have started.

Martin O'Neill played a huge part in Lennon's career and Kayal could not have a better mentor .

First-team coach Michael Stone admits that he is facing the biggest challenge of his career with strugglers Barnet.

Stone, 32, has been retained by the club who sacked manager Mark Stimson following the 2-1 defeat at home to Aldershot on New Year's day.

his role with individual player

Gold lays into his lame Lions

By Danny Caro, January 6, 2011

Tony Gold, the London Lions manager, is refusing to hit the panic button after his team started 2011 in disastrous fashion, going down 5-0 against Hoddesdon Town on Tuesday.

Gold's men started the match in sixth place in the South Midlands League Division One but they were left to rue a string of missed chances - and an inspired performance by home keeper Tom Bullock - against a Hoddesdon team playing its first competitive game since November 27.

Lennon: Kayal's my top boy

By Danny Caro, January 6, 2011

Neil Lennon, the Celtic manager, praised Israel midfield Biram Kayal following his match-winning display in his first Old firm derby.

The former Maccabi Haifa player had endured an injury-ravaged start to his career in Scotland since signing in July but produced a tigerish display in midfield in the 2-0 win over Rangers at Ibrox.

Lennon said: "He did exactly what we thought he was capable of. We brought him here because he is good at breaking the play up and strong in the tackle.
