Kashtan is right. Our players have a lazy mentality. That is why they are tired after only 70 minutes of a game and why our teams give up late goals all the time. All players are the same. There are no "stars". Not Ben Haim and not anybody else. If he does not show up for the training session then Kashtan is right to throw him out. Enough of the nonsense. BTW Kashtan does not pick "favorites". He only picked 3 players from Hapoel Tel Aviv whereas there are 9 from Beitar for example. No favoritism there. Badir played out of postition (as a defensive back) for Hapoel Tel Aviv against the Slovenians. He is definitely one of our better midfielders and deserves to be on the national team. Either Bruchian or Vermut would have been a good pick. Personally I think that Kashtan picked just about the best team possible. In the future Vermut and some of the other younger players will get their chance.
