Sollosi late show keeps RJC in charge

By Danny Caro, January 30, 2011

An 83rd minute strike from Ben Sollosi helped Redbridge nick a point against an impressive Faithfold team at the Hive.

The game started in a tepid fashion, save for a brilliant Ben Solossi run down the left which led to a vital save at his feet by Faithfold goalkeeper Ben Law.

It suddenly sprung to life, however, when centre back Adam Hakimi inexplicably stuck out a hand from a cross to give away a penalty. Veteran Daryl Phillips took two steps and then perfectly slotted home the spot kick into the top cornet to give his side a 17th minute lead.

2013 will be a landmark year for sport in Israel

By Danny Caro, January 28, 2011

Sport lovers in Israel can look forward to a real treat in the summer of 2013.

Preparations are already under way for the 19th Maccabiah Games in July.

But a month earlier, some of the most talented young footballers from across Europe will fly in to take part in the Under 21 European Championships.

I’d be lying if I said that I was not surprised when Fifa recently named Qatar as the host nation for the 2022 World Cup finals.

It’s hard to believe that a small footballing nation like Israel has been handed a tournament of this calibre, but clearly a sign of changing times.

Managers call for MSFL revamp

By Danny Caro, January 28, 2011

The Maccabi League is in need of a serious restructure, say some of its top managers who believe a complete overhaul is vital to make it more competitive and credible.

They have called for change after the Premier Division was cut to eight teams for the second consecutive season. This means that relegation from the top-flight appears unlikely and some teams are only four matches away from completing their league season.

It was great having the cream of the crop on the top table

By Danny Caro, January 27, 2011

Not even the late withdrawal of Avram Grant could dampen the mood at the Meir Panim Football Frenzy event at Spurs last weekend.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience as QC, where I hosted a panel featuring David Pleat, Oldham Athletic's Dean Furman and Simon Corney, and Barry Silkman.

Poor old Avram was bed-ridden with flu. He missed a great night although it was a shame that players and officials from the various Maccabi Leagues did not show their support.

Give the girl a break

By Danny Caro, January 25, 2011

Spot the difference.

Sky Sports hauls Richard Keys and Andy Gray off its Monday Night Football programme following inappropriate comments towards a female assistant referee.

Meanwhile, a week after making inappropriate comments towards TV and radio presenter Vanessa Feltz, Ally Ross is at it again, albeit a less offensive remark this time.

The Sun columnist is doing himself no favours. Does he have a personal gripe with Vanessa? I have to ask.

Do The Sun care? Evidently not.

C’mon Ally. Leave the girl alone.

By Danny Caro, January 24, 2011

Under 18s maintained their title hopes with a 2-2 draw against Park Street Village in the Watford Friendly League Yellow Division.

The table-topping Sky Blues Under 18s arrived for their crucial league match with only eleven available players. Opponents Park Street hadn't played for some weeks due to bad weather and provided very tough opposition, which belied their mid-table status.

An even first half ended with an excellent finish from Matt Goodfield after he was set up by a fine through ball from skipper Alex Trup to put Pinner one up at the break.
