Since the start of the new year there is a sense at the club that things are moving in the right direction, one that has been reflected in our results on the pitch. We have strengthened our squad during the transfer window and this has helped us to increase the competition for places both in the starting team and in the squad. It's been very gratifying to see that the response and the attitude towards these changes by everyone on the training pitch have been simply fantastic. I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome newcomers Eran Zahavi and Ignacio Fideleff to the club.

There is a lot of tension in the air and that is why it is so important that all of us, players and fans alike, behave responsibly. During the course of the match there may be flash-points, and it is at these very moments that we must control our passions because our team's performance is so dependent on how you, our most loyal fans, conduct yourselves on the night. Your support in the last home game against Hapoel Acco was absolutely brilliant and we know we can count upon you to provide that same kind of encouragement against Hapoel Tel Aviv on Monday night.
