03/09/10 - Israel vs Malta
Satisfied with this match. 1st game and we play them at home infront of everyone. So the team will be beefed. Would like to play possibly Croatia/Greece, but what can u do?
07/09/10 - Georgia vs Israel
Not bad as well since its September and warm in Georgia and we can really use the nice weather to do well. Even if its 5 days after and we fly out....
08/10/10 - Israel vs Croatia
Should be interesting to see how well Israel does in this game. They will play at home and they can suprise many people since Croatia is vying to rebuild itself. Israel can manage a tie perhaps.
12/10/10 - Greece vs Israel
Very crucial match. Israel is hoping to get the most out of this game and even a tie can be really well. The game is at Greece and I hope Israel wont do the same mistake and play in Crete in front of 35,000 underprivileged Greeks. We can really take charge in this match.
26/03/11 - Israel vs Latvia
Revenge of Revenges! A home game in March. Should be exciting and hopefully we will be able to capitalize and win on Latvia unlike last time.
29/03/11 - Israel vs Gerogia*
Good game for Israel at home. Back to Back against two teams we can surely get points from.
04/06/11 - Latvia vs Israel
Might be tricky as we didnt do well against them in Riga, but the game is still fresh in our heads...Interesting that this game is in June. I dont recall many June matches.. The only one that comes to mind is Israel/Spain match in 2001
02/09/11 - Israel vs Greece
Should be an intense match up. First, Israel and Greece start a new season and still cucumber season for the both and Israel can really take advantage of an out of shape Greek team.
06/09/11 - Croatia vs Israel
Dont know if Croatia will spare us, but we seem to be the underdog in this game. We may do well since we play them early on in the season and they are still starting their season so alot of changes and out of shape players.
I like the fact that both crucial matches are after the summer and the begining of the season with GREECE and CROATIA!!!! That is a plus!
11/10/11 - Malta vs Israel
Good way to end the tournament. Hopefully it wont end the same way as it did in 2003 when we were played out by Malta only to have a mediocre tie handed to us thanks to a balili goal in the 2nd half!!
What do you guys think of the schedule?
If LF has its ways...
I predict this outcome for points
Low: 20 points
Most likely: 23 Points
Golden High Opprtounity: 26 points
I dont think we will go lower (g-d forbid) or higher...but thats the range of points i think we will take..... without the F'cked up incidents!
