Fans, we have a difficult game ahead of us on Saturday. Hapoel Haifa is a good team. Everyone thinks that we’ll be able to defeat them easily, but many of you don’t understand that these teams have been coming into these matches very prepared this year and they want to take points from us. However, at the end of the day we will battle to take all three points.
This week we are playing before Hapoel Beer Sheva does. I believe that there is great importance to the way the schedule is. Up until now, we were under a bit of pressure especially when we have been playing when the gap has been 8-points. I think that it’s very good that this week we are playing before Beer Sheva and it’s time for us to put them under pressure and close the gap to just two points.
The message I want to convey to you is this: Nothing is over. There are some that are saying that five points is a lot and that Beer Sheva is playing well. But we the players don’t see it that way. On behalf of myself and the rest of the team we want to make it crystal clear that nothing is over.
Personally, I can tell you that I have not had an easy season. My goal has been to stay fit, to assist and score goals but mainly to make sure that we come into the last part of the year with a lot of energy and I believe that’s exactly how the team feels. I look forward to seeing all of you at Bloomfield. The weather has changed and it’s been nicer outside and we’ll have good tempo on Saturday.
