The problems from last season have not been solved, and Barak Bachar is not clean either

shock.

This is the only way to define the feeling in Maccabi Haifa's locker room after the 3: 2 loss last night (Tuesday) to Hapoel Kfar Saba.

On Monday, coach Barak Bachar held a particularly difficult meeting for the players, followed by a feeling that everyone understands that only a victory over Kfar Saba will restore calm after the loss in the derby.

Haifa did show sparks in the first half, but failed to dominate the game and provided a fall display in the second half, en route to a second loss in three days.



"It was clear that we would arrive differently from the derby, and indeed it was. But when you do not finish such games in the first half, then that is what happens," the club said.

"Unfortunately we have not yet solved last season's problems. We are still not able to finish games and we have not yet stabilized the defense."

Haifa was already convinced that the problems that characterized the group last year were solved, but the last few weeks prove that this is far from true.

Now Bachar and his team will have to find solutions, but he too is not without criticism.

There were those at the club who claimed that Becher was late with the exchanges last night even when it was clear that the team was "crushed".

2. The defense does not stabilize: "If it is not resolved, we have nothing to sell this season"

There is a lot of talk about Maccabi Haifa's defensive game.

Last night, Bachar tried to produce a change in the back line when he replaced a significant part of it and added Ofri Arad, Taleb Tuatha and Raz Meir to the lineup - but the exchanges did not help either and Haifa again made serious mistakes on the defensive side.



At the tough meeting Bachar held on Monday he made it clear to the players that easy expatriates should not be allowed, but last night it looked even worse.

"With a defensive game like this it is impossible to take a championship. Point," the team said.

"If we do not resolve this, then we will have nothing to sell this season."



Goalkeeper Omri Glazer, who has received credit in recent rounds, has been criticized, and there were those who claimed that he conveyed feelings of insecurity to the defensive players.

Due to the less good ability he showed, Josh Cohen may replace him between the posts already in the upcoming game against Betar Jerusalem. At the same time, the team is also trying to protect Glazer. "It must not be finished.

"Obviously his ability does not live up to expectations, until now, but do not be surprised if they continue to try him," the club claimed.



Bogdan Planic also received harsh criticism from his teammates. The team is also waiting for Taleb Tuatha to get fit for a full game, but who was taken out last night at half-time to take loads off him. One



way or another, Haifa is looking for solutions. . R.

Serious mistakes.

3. Barak Bachar under pressure: "There is no doubt that this is a significant test for him"

Barak Bachar is at the intersection.

His successful tenure at Hapoel Beer Sheva also opened stutteringly, and critics claimed at the time that he was not ready to coach a large team.

Since then, Bachar has managed to prove that he is definitely mature, but last night there were again comments from commentators against the coach and he also seems to understand that the pressure on Maccabi Haifa is greater than any pressure he has known until now.



"It's definitely a significant test for Bachar and his team," said a source close to the club's professional team.

"Anyone who knows Barak knows that he is sure to pass criticism on himself more than anyone else. At the same time, he is looking for quick solutions, and will also find them. That no one will eulogize Maccabi Haifa this season."

4. Special vigilance towards Betar: "Loss may lead to a crash"

On Monday, Haifa will meet Betar Jerusalem for a game that will decide whether the team embarks on a new path or enters a crisis that will be difficult to get out of. "The game against Betar is a game for an entire season," said one of the players.

"There is no doubt that we are at the beginning of a crisis. A loss in the second may already lead to a crash, and there is really a good enough group here for this not to happen. We must not listen to the background noises now and it is clear that the media will produce quite a few.

On the way to a comeback?

5. "Snatch" on Tomer Hemed?

It cannot be ruled out outright

Although Haifa understands that the problems are mainly in the defensive part, the attack is not without problems either - and the club understands that there is a lack of depth on this side of the field as well.

The team hopes to solve the problem in the January transfer window with the addition of at least one attacking player.



Muhammad Awad is the leading candidate to return, but it depends on the consent of Lech Poznan and in any case there are more candidates.

"We will get closer to January and decide," the club insisted throughout the week, but the last two losses may cause the professional team to hurry.



Apart from Awad, the Tomer Hemed option may also be of interest to the Greens' professional team.

The striker has already summed up his terms at Wellington Phoenix New Zealand but has yet to sign, and there have been small gaps between him and the team in recent days.

At the same time, a number of Israeli teams approached him, and Hemed clarified that he did not rule out a "snatch" from the New Zealand team.

According to people close to Hemed, he in any case prefers a return to Israel over an adventure in the Australian league, so an interesting offer may devour the cards.

Maccabi Haifa has not submitted an offer for Hemed, but sources around the club are expected to interest the team in this possibility in the coming days.



Goodsway Donio who did not partner yesterday, suffered from muscle tenderness.

Players on the team testify that despite trying to give Donio minutes as a winger, in training it is clear that he can only play as a central striker.

So as long as Nikita Rokavitsia is part of the squad, it will be difficult for Donio to earn minutes.

6. The players criticize the referee, will the youngsters get more chances?

Maccabi Haifa players also harshly criticized referee Snir Levy.

"With every little whistle he ruled against us," said one of the players.

"I'm also not sure he would have made a difference in the first goal of Kfar Saba, and the penalty he gave them was the highlight of course. "He decided to keep insisting. If that is the case, then there is no need for a VAR."

By the way, immediately after the whistle for Pendel, Barak Bachar is seen walking towards his bench and saying: "I do not believe it. This is a scandal, just a scandal."



And there was also a bright spot in yesterday's game - the entry of youngsters Timothy Mozi and Maor Levy.

While the veteran players did not deliver the goods, the two played 13 minutes (including extra time), demonstrated sparks and may receive more extensive credit in subsequent games.

The veteran players also complimented the two.
