Hapoel win away from home ahead of Celtic clash.


Hapoel Tel Aviv beat the strangely named Hapoel Beer Sheva 3-1 away from home tonight ahead of Thursday’s Europa League game with Celtic.

It was the first league win of the season for Hapoel after two draws domestically whilst beating IFK Gothenburg and Teplice of the Czech Republic to reach the group stage of the Europa League.
Beer Sheva took the lead in the 15th minute but midfielder Nemanja Vucicevic equalised before the break with Michael Zandberg putting Hapoek in front in the 58th minute before Avihay Yadin clinched the points in the final minute.
The win lifts Hapoel into sixth place in the 16 team Israeli league, trailing leaders Maccabi Haifa by four points.
Hopefully I’ll soon have more details from the match, more details on the Hapoel-Celtic match can be found on the uefa website

ZTE as they are better known took the lead in the 20th minute but captain Peter Kabat led by example with a hat-trick with Foxi Kethevoama striking the other as Ujpest fought back to claim the points… CLICK HERE for more

The Big Bad John image has lightened a lot, the face that we saw on Setanta, unshaven and with the top button undone has been replaced with a much softer image and a different tone to his voice… CLICK HERE for more

    Cheers Derek, I'm sure that any Israeli's might find Cowdenbeath or Stenhousemuir strange names, no harm intended, the New Labour/PC brigade haven't yet taken control of this blog or my mind, yet
