Do you think there will be a (legal) stream?

MFCTV might piggy back on Israeli TV but I doubt there will be a UK showing as Premier Sport obviously will show Celtic and Rangers.  

 

Being in Israel we might have an early slot

Travelling to Israel during covid-times wont be cheap

I’ve got no clue how these things work... but surely there are so many planes / pilots / crew sitting around just now that it’s a buyers’ market for charters?

Given how poor we were against a Scottish league one level team on Thursday I didn't think we had a chance in Israel. After today though I am right up for it. We get through this and we have an unreal chance to raise the stock of our club and secure ourselves financially for years to come the following week.

 

Think we should go with the same line up as today, Grimmy was solid and Long's pace is electric. If White and/or Seedorf are somehow in the starting XI I will be straight in the "Robinson Out" camp. 

 

And someone please wrap Allan Campbell in cotton wool all week.

Mugabi not suspended? If so, and we continue with the same formation there's a decision to be made about who makes up the three at the back.

The problem with these types of games is you always feel Scottish players can't press and play at pace when the temperature is scorching.  The forecast for Thursday night is over 28C.

If we are going to win in Israel it won't be the same way we did today.

Can people please stop putting Hastie in their lineups? I suspect we'll end up with either McGinley or O'Donnell dropping into the back three. I suspect O'Donnell..

Looking at

Carson 

Gallagher O'Donnell Lamie

Grimshaw Campbell O'Hara Polworth McGinley

Long/Lang Watt

Which I'd be fine with...

:D

 

I would imagine the same line-up as today, with McGinley coming in to defence and Lamie shuffling over to the middle of the 3.

The manager is the problem he has signed players who should never be at our club . He picks the team lays down the tactics and supposedly coaches them on training pitch although you could never tell . As a previous poster said it's great to have money in the bank but to have no quality on the pitch could mean relegation ,it's never to soon to talk about relegation I think it's a definite chance with this squad and manager.Lets hope the players have the stomach for a relegation battle 

Have we ever had a manager you liked?

I’ve always been of the opinion we won’t be relegated under Robinson, he always has a way of turning things around.

Has it been confirmed where we will play on Thursday given Israel's lockdown? I had seen talk of Cyprus mentioned but haven't seen anything set in stone?

Yes, Israel but not Hapeol Be'er Sheva's regular stadium which is undergoing works.  Somewhere north of Tel Aviv I think I read.

I really really really really hope we can make it through to the playoff round. If they do stream the game I’m not sure if I’d watch it or just wait and see the result at full time. I hope the players are not as nervous as me !

As a manager he still pretty inexperienced, right? So I’m sure he’ll improve with experience to where he will have less need to turn things around in the first place.

I’m sure he will.

There hasn’t been a Manager in history that hasn’t had to turn things around at some point. Some succeed and some don’t.

The ones that do tend to have longer and more successful careers

Absolutely, and that’s where continuity is important, clubs that go from one manager to another rarely have success. Let’s be honest we could have had three managers over the last three years if the board had crumbled every time we were on a bad run, Robinson would have been gone a couple of weeks ago this season. Personally I don’t believe there has been a single time over that period  that justified Robinson been sacked.

When is the team arriving in Israel? 

I would imagine it will be the night/day before. Due to Covid they will be in and out  of Israel very quickly.

Hopefully early enough to get some practice at the stadium if they are even allowed to do that during the lockdown.  Quite a long flight so need some time to stretch the legs out and a decent rest to recover from the travel

I’m not sure what the official line is on travel but when Scotland were playing in Czech Rep, it was a quick in and out with no trip to the stadium prior to the match.

That will make it even tougher for us.

I think we had a session in Coleraine the day before the game.

Would have been an interesting trip for the fans that could have made it.
