Euro squad is the strongest yet, but is it missing the point?

By Danny Caro, December 9, 2010

Ben Winston's European Maccabi Games squad is very strong. Of that there is no doubt. Too strong? Quite possibly. Maccabiah standard, some might say. But as is often the case, there is an argument that this competition should be for boys who ply their trade in the Maccabi League, both north and south, week in, week out. Otherwise, the usual suspects will continue to be selected for the big competitions.

By Danny Caro, December 8, 2010

Eli Guttman, manager of Hapoel Tel Aviv, praised his team after they came within two minutes of reaching the Europa League before their hopes were crushed by a late equaliser in Lyon.

By Danny Caro, December 6, 2010

We English love talking about the weather, and without wanting to sound like Michael Fish, the outlook looks bleak in the short-term at least.

Last season, the Jewish football programme came to a virtual standstill as a result of the cold snap, with very few matches played between November and March.

On Sunday, the entire JC MJSL programme was wiped out by sub-zero temperatures while only three JC MSFL matches went ahead.

The Maccabi Masters Rep Team have reached the third round of the Peter Morrison Trophy after beating the Lions in a fiercly contested match at Rowley Lane.

In the end, only an own goal separated the sides in what some people may describe as a shock result with Masters edging past Lions team boosted by several members of their Masters team that players in the Garston Vets League.
