White noise: Maccabi Haifa and Betar Jerusalem do not adapt to life without the fans

Barak Bachar learned to find the right solution to his difficulties at the beginning of his journey in Kiryat Shmona and Be'er Sheva, but in Haifa without the audience, a different challenge awaits him.

Drapic and Barda also need more than anything the push of the crowd and a more realistic bar of expectations in the capital.

    Summary: Hapoel Kfar Saba - Maccabi Haifa 2: 3 (Sport 1)

    1.

    At times when things are not going well for his teams, Barak Bachar takes a few days to think.

    He consults with the staff around him and close professionals, and if he feels the problem is mental, he looks for an unusual way to solve it.

    In 2014, he felt that his status in Kiryat Shmona might soon be undermined after accumulating only 16 points from the 12 opening rounds.



    He was at a loss, shared with the club his frustration at not being able to influence the team, broke his head in search of a solution and finally surprised with a positive assembly in which he said: "We are unlucky, we work hard, work right, better than the rivalry. I trust You and we will get out of this together. "

    Bachar, too, apparently did not believe what he said then, but he went with what he felt was right.

    After that, Kiryat Shmona won three games in a row, clung to the top, and finished the same season in third place and with the state cup.



    If Bachar feels the problem is professional, he simply admits he was wrong and changes immediately.

    At the beginning of his career in Be'er Sheva, the team was eliminated from Europe and faltered in the first rounds of the league.

    The record came in a loss in Acre in the fifth round (1: 0) in which John Ugo was replaced in the half for the second time in a row in an attempt to move to a more offensive lineup.

    After several days of contemplating the situation, he admitted to the club members: "I was wrong, I went to places I should not have gone to. I must keep a strong link and it will be our anchor, the more I do not break it."

    Since that game, except for a quarter of an hour towards the end of the season, the Nigerian ax has not been replaced again.

    On the face of it, there is a feeling in its recent games that Maccabi Haifa looks even less good than last year - especially in the strong link segment that characterized it and dominated the games, and also in the defense that is still looking for itself.

    But many forget the gap between the Greens' ability last year before and after the arrival of the Corona that emptied the Premier League stands.



    She beat Hapoel Tel Aviv 0: 5 with the crowd, and after a few weeks lost to her at home 2: 1 without a crowd.

    Beer Sheva also had a quartet, and after only nine days lost to them in the Cup 2: 1 in a game without an audience.

    Marco Belbul scored just 15 of 30 possible points in the playoffs, in which he lost his big advantage over the league - the Green fans.

    It was not only the colorful home atmosphere with over 20,000 spectators, but also the support of over 9,000 fans for the outdoor pitches that created a homely atmosphere and brought quite a few points.



    In August, Max Grechkin predicted in his farewell interview with Betar Jerusalem: "The audience will be short of greatness next season, and that gives an advantage to the little ones.

    In the big ones, even when the crowd is not going to press and push and it gives you strength, you get used to it.

    I remember in her room we used to play Teddy or Turner, and as much as you try to play well and feel it's your game, suddenly there's momentum that the senior team gets back from the crowd and an echo at every touch of the ball that you do not understand where it came from.

    It's like you're against 12 players. "So true, all the big ones suffer from a lack of crowds, but last year the stadium in Haifa reached its moment of truth after bad years and was the driving force of Maccabi Haifa, which simply collapsed without it.

    And this is perhaps what connects Haifa and Betar ahead of tonight's game (Monday, 20:45, Sport 5). Just like Bachar, Slobodan Drapic and Shai Barda also aim to bring the players to a maximum starvation point. Both teams are based on high pressure, They have a very hard time when they have a slowdown and suddenly become soft and vulnerable.



    In its last two home games, Betar absorbed first and equalized in the first half, but was unable to win.

    On the way down to the locker rooms after the loss to Maccabi Petah Tikva (2: 1), Idan Vered said: "If there was an audience here that will push, in the two games after the draw we will finish it."



    No matter what happens tonight, both Bachar and Drapich and Barda need to draw conclusions, perhaps already ahead of tonight's game.

    In a league without a big crowd they lose their biggest advantage and they have to make the adjustments.

    This season you need to know how to play mainly for the points and understand that the number of minutes in which you can watch quality football is limited.



    The case of Drapich and Barda is even more extreme.

    In their previous term in the capital four years ago, with a squad that included Itai Schechter, Nikita Rokavitsia, Omar Atzili, Claudemir and Hassos Ruada, third place is considered an achievement for them.

    Today, with less good staff, expectations are much higher.

    To ask Roni Levy.



    When the return of Noble was on the summer episode, Moshe Hogg celebrated the professional team and the management for a conversation in which he asked "Is Noble worth a championship for us?", And Roni Levy replied: And if Levi Garcia goes, then add a winger at a level. "

    The atmosphere that surrounded Roni Levy in those days was the main problem.

    You can talk about what kind of football you want to see from the team, but at the level of expectations in relation to its record staff was third place.

    Need to make the adjustments both for themselves and for their future.

    Levy is gone, and now the problem is with Drapich and Barda. Expectations in the capital are still unrealistic and coaches need to make the adjustments both for themselves and for their future. If they choose to play less well but stick to Maccabi Tel Aviv and Maccabi Haifa to the end, that will be the only thing they will remember. If there is any sane line that celebrates from time to time it is in the statement that he is not expecting a championship but a team that will score more and be closer to the lead compared to last year.



    The problem with the demand for a large number of expatriates is that the team scored 51 goals last season, in 42 of them (over 80%) involved players who no longer wear yellow and black: Garcia, Shlomi Azulai, Gadi Kinda, Angie Freddie Floman, Anthony Varen, Dan Einbinder and Hanan Maman.



    Who should complete the quota? Michael Ohana is back and has already scored three goals, but the pressure on him is not doing him any good, physically and mentally, and he has not scored more than five goals in any season in his career. Halaofilo Plater and his theorists are a puzzle at the number level. Jordan Shua of Bnei Yehuda was a hit, but at Maccabi Haifa he scored two goals in a year and a half.



    At the moment, it seems that in order to restore the number of conquests from last year, Betar will need a double-digit number from Eliran Atar and Idan Vered, in addition to a reasonable amount of goals from midfielders and defensive players who do not often score.
