The one who was Bella
Our youth team finished sadly in the last phase of the Elite Round, in the same team with Holland, Cezch republic and Russia.
1.Czech Republic - 7pts
2.Russia - 5pts
3.Holland - 2pts
4.Israel - 1pts.
There was no way to watch the games, atleast not from what I found - but in general we had the lead in every single one of our games which could be incouraging and according to reports played pretty well.. Eli Ohana keeps dissapointing in terms of results, but in those levels it matters less aslong as he helps develop the kids.. only problem is thats only for him to know cause we can't see the games =/
From all the reports I read, Amir Agayev has been a real standout for us - and from personal experience I can tell you guys it does not suprise me one bit - I happened to go to a Maccabi youth game against Bnei Yehuda a few months ago and all I could talk about is this kid.. lighting fast, agile, ball glued to his feet - just a genuine live-wire.. reminded me abit of Elroi Cohen the first time I saw him... donno if he played in a senior match yet - but trust me, this kid is gonna be a name to reckon with in Ligat Ha'al.. i'll bump this post in a couple of years for sure.
Sucks we can't establish ourselfs in those group ages tho... would really love it if we would put emphasis in those ages, the U-15 to U-19.. maybe when the "Beit Ha'Nivharot" will be built we'll show improovment.. until then we can only hope.
Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.
The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.
