There’s been a goal… 7.6

To The Promised Land

…in the 2023 Israeli Premier League Toto Cup final.

As the match started, I thought the lads looked quite composed.

Then, in the second minute, one of their midfielders shows a burst of pace, gets to the corner of the area and plays a little ball into the near post. Their striker cuts across the area, unmarked, and slots it home from six yards.

It might have helped if our keeper had had his hands out of his pockets, metaphorically speaking.

Well done, lads. All that preparation. All that defensive positioning work: ‘We don’t want to keep conceding at the near post, do we?’. And now, after two minutes, it’s Beitar Jerusalem 1 Hapoel Ashkelon 0.

Notts County supporter, at least nominally. Regularly watch Stevenage, Cambridge Utd, and Peterborough. On FM, favour teams from the eastern Med, especially on Greek islands. Addicted to searching for liberos and to signing Darren Lavery. According to Liam Billington, I'm 'the Iniesta of Higher Tempo Press' :)
