I’m re­ally not tak­ing the Michael

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

move to the Pre­mier League may not be im­mi­nent as Michael, I’m told, would strug­gle to ob­tain a work per­mit.

If Brendan Rogers likes what he sees, though, sign­ing the player and loan­ing him back to MS Ash­dod is an op­tion, just as he did with Divock Origi.

I’ve spent hours on Face­book watch­ing play­ers from the MGBSFL and Mac­cabi Masters League do­ing their bit for char­ity in the ASL Ice Bucket Chal­lenge since re­turn­ing from Cyprus.

Some tend to fit into their trunks bet­ter than oth­ers, al­though images of Daniel Howard in an Ali G style mank­ini still haunt me.

It’s good to see some ref­er­ees also do­ing their bit, in­clud­ing Martin Laven­der and War­wick Blake.

I did mine with­out any is­sues, but it ap­pears some are strug­gling with the words ice and bucket, and do­ing it in hot­ter climes kind of de­feats the ob­ject.

If you think the MGBSFL reg­is­tra­tion win­dow is busy, you should check out the scene in the Masters League. Play­ers over the age of 33 can com­pete in both, and man­agers have been bat­tling it out to get the ones they want.

I’ll be lin­ing up in the colours of Faith­fold Masters this sea­son and have per­suaded for­mer South Mancs team­mate Lau­rence Keen to join me, as­sum­ing we can get him out of Dis­ney­land. Then again, some of Faith­fold’s de­fend­ing was a bit Mickey Mouse last sea­son so he should fit in per­fectly. Email dcaro@thejc.com and/or fol­low Danny on Twit­ter:@dj­caro
