Been a while since anyone wrote here...looks like when the club is down so are the fans. Anywyas beitar faces real problems...i mean the club is a real upset the past couple of weeks, but we should all be happy...even beitar fans. With the squad you have there shouldn't be a reason why you shouldn't make it back up the table and just look at it this way, the league will be alot more exciting now

Just like the team itself :D

Nothing much to expand right now, a good solution for the problems would start by kicking out several high paid players who don't really seem to be bugged with making an effort to the team anymore. For the last 2 years the youth club won two championship titles, so it's not like you don't have an adequate replacements. Too bad they aren't given enough chances...

It would be nice to win somethign this season. It really sucks how beitar is.
I would post more, but it seems that only a few people get to it when i post..

In any case, i think Beitar will bounde back soon and like Gilli said - our Youth is where its at... strong individuals who will be Israels up and coming, will show the leauge how it is...

plus i think we should scout early the Liga Leumit!
They have some insane players their. The Hapoel Haifa team is suberp... no losses yet!

agree about the youth, shame the youth isn't given a chance with the big boys, this would apply some nice pressure on all the "high paid" players. I believe the problem was getting a bit too comfortable. What is your view on replacing Shum? Anyway I see beitar this season as a A.C Milan of this year or a Bayern of 2 seasons ago, perhaps it takes something drastic like a lack of placing in a European competiton and no silverware to realize that major changes must take place. Its a team that has its resources, yet i believe that nothing at the top squad is too consistent and stable. Stability is important, especially for Israeli players

Well I always followed Israeli football in general but since I had never been to Israel before, it was hard for me to pick a team. Then on my first visit to Israel I met Beitar at Ben-Gurion airport and had a nice long chat with Toto Tamuz. (This is when he had just been signed in 2006) Anyway they seemed like nice, genuine guys and from then I started taking more and more interest in their games and results until I became what you could call a 'fan'. :)

I'm very happy now that it wasn't Maccabi Haifa that I met at the airport, because it sure would suck if I turned out to be a Maccabi Haifa supporter. :scared: :pp

Although I do wish that we had signed Masilela and Fanteni instead, it would have been nice to have 2 South African's playing for the team I support. Anyway, TZAHOV OLE!

We were waiting in the airport, when we saw the whole entourage come and sit down right behind us. They were waiting for their flight just like us, apprently.
My friend and I challenged Toto and Itzik Kornfein (at least I think it was him, he told us he was a goalkeeper so I assumed it was him) to 2 on 2 in the airport but they didn't take up our offer surprisingly. :D

In South Africa there is a big Jewish community, about 90 000, but not many follow the Israeli league. Lots follow the National Team though and even the U21s. There are also lots of Israelis here which helps but I have only met a few Beitar fans in South Africa even though most Jews here support the Israeli National Team even above the South African one.
