Gap gap: the difference between Luzon and Ran Ben Shimon

Both the Maccabi Petah Tikva and Ashdod coaches received support, but while Ben Shimon deserves credit, Luzon's case evokes a sense of nepotism and the fans' protest.

Summary: Maccabi Petah Tikva - MS.

Ashdod 1: 0 (Sports 1)

In a sense, the game between Maccabi Petah Tikva and MS.

Ashdod was a derby.

On the lines stood two coaches who received unlimited credit from the team owners from the start of the season.

On the one hand Ran Ben Shimon, who spent long weeks at the back of the table, and on the other hand Guy Luzon, whose team started a reasonable minus, but has not won for a month and a half and does not stop slipping down the table.



Two teams, two coaches, similar owner decisions and yet - a difference of heaven and earth.

If for Ben Shimon it is a classic case of a coach who is simply not in a hurry to give up because of his qualities and only because of them, from Luzon's survival there is a pungent smell of nepotism.

"The protest does not affect me," he said yesterday, and not for the first time.

And that why would she affect him?

He feels safe, very safe, as he felt every time he stood on the lines at Maccabi Petah Tikva.

After we have finished laughing and deleting the cliché "Maccabi Petah Tikva? Do they have any fans at all?", It is worth taking a look at the depths of the minds of these people who make sure to get on the field and protest every week. Their pain is great not because they have something personal against Luzon (and even if they do, that's not the point here), but because they feel his was it another coach, he would have already seen the door open wide.



No, this is not a call for Luzon's dismissal. A person who tries to keep his job should be respected, even if the results on the ground are not good. Nor is it protecting poor hooligans who try to harm professionals in the club's club or coach's car, but equally there is room to identify with the legitimate part of the checks and understand where they are coming from. This team does not look good, it is below the red line, and in fact is deep in the vicious circle into which it has been drawn in recent years: basing itself on the table-selling player / key players-getting into bottom-down / staying-at-the-moment struggles.



No fan can come to terms with such a formula.

Unless this fan is called Avi Luzon.

Something in my life must change

Something very strange is happening at Maccabi Netanya.

On the one hand, there is a feeling that the team has improved since the arrival of Bnei Lem.

On the other hand, the results do not really tell it, whether it is the multiple red cards or the naive loss of points.

Twice, against Hapoel Jerusalem and Kiryat Shmona, Netanya scored an early goal and absorbed in the final minutes to remain without compensation.



It is currently at the bottom, well mixed in the cauldron.

As it looks, at least three teams will have a hard time accumulating points by the end of the season and will get involved in the fight against relegation.

Netanya may be one of them.

In order for this not to happen, she will need Almog Cohen in much better shape than he demonstrated in Kiryat Shmona.

It just does not look good.

Cohen, according to reports, was supposed to be out for an extended period of time.

He returned unexpectedly two weeks ago.

Rust is one thing, a fallen ability like the one he discovered yesterday - that's another matter.

Maccabi Netanya can not afford its leader in such a show, no matter what the circumstances or his position on the field.

With such an ability, it might be better not to play anymore.



Cohen has contributed a lot to Maccabi Netanya and he still has something to contribute to the club.

He will be given a managerial role when he retires, perhaps before then.

The question is whether the Cohen of the future is already directed to the spatial vision required of a manager to know that the Cohen of the present is far from being the mainstay that will save Maccabi Netanya from a fallen season, which could end in heartbreak.

Poor joy

Maccabi Tel Aviv will host Teddy tonight, in a game whose meaning is very clear to Betar Jerusalem, but not very clear to the trophy holder. Win, end in a draw, lose - who cares, actually? once and for all after amendment derby, as signed in the wake of the loss in Beersheba. If there are special this season Maccabi Tel Aviv, it is that it is wrapping up a week again.



Against the background of this nothing grows back Tal Ben Haim. striker was completely ignored by Patrick Van Leven has been given a new life by Barak Yitzhaki, and at least in recent games he justifies the credit.The question is whether what does this represent for Maccabi Tel Aviv, and the answer to that is not really positive.

Does the job, but what does that say about the team?

Ben Haim (Photo: Ariel Shalom)

At 32, after four very unstable years, Ben Haim lost more than one step in his game.

The sharpness is not the same sharpness, the speed is not the same speed.

As someone who had qualities and strengths on the line, Ben Haim became a more predictable, slow and limited player.

His decline is natural, but the question is whether he is suitable for a team with huge expectations like those of Maccabi Tel Aviv.

After all, in her situation the group can not give it up, and that is exactly the dissonance: how did she get into such a situation?



The entire management team is responsible for the failure to build the staff, which led the team to a lesser extent and with the collapse of the infrastructure not only for the current season, but perhaps also for the one that follows.

Maccabi Tel Aviv today is a meaningless patchwork team in the Premier League.

Ben Haim is not to blame for the situation and the criticism, especially these days, is not directed at him.

He does serve as a symbol of the conduct and thinness of the staff that led him to become an important screw in the club.

This is how consumers revolt

Ongoing sagas in ticket matters tend to be very boring, especially since the power struggle between Nof Hagalil and Maccabi Haifa had a known end in advance.

The one who took down the final ax on the hosts' struggle was Mayor Ronen Plot, who asked (and, as expected, also answered) that the ticket prices be NIS 60.



It is easy to understand the side of Gil Baram and the landscape of the Galilee.

A large group arrives at the stadium with occupancy restrictions - they want to make a box office.

The thing is that the threat of Maccabi Haifa fans seems too serious.

After the Green fans were not reconciled from the initial price drop on Friday, Plott realized it was time to put an end to it.

It was a sensible move given the circumstances.

A demonstration of power.

This is not a case of good and bad.

There is a free market here and Baram's right to demand the highest price he can get, but also the right of Maccabi Haifa fans not to come.

While the State of Israel is fighting the cost of living and the citizens here are finding themselves paying more and more for a shopping basket, Maccabi Haifa fans have given us all an important lesson in understanding what consumer power is.

Instead of the familiar "buy and cry" syndrome, they broadcast that they were going all the way.

I wish we knew how to unite in the same way with the giant corporations in the economy.
