Europa League Campaign 2020-2021

I've also just seen the highlights from their last round.
Looks like our mutual loathing of the defensive game is clear to see! Embdy's game! haha!
 
 
Oh great, they like to lump it into the box and feed off the knock downs. We looked really comfortable with that last week.

Also, I'm sure I heard the commentator mention Janet Street Porter at one point. Not sure who she was playing for though.

Their entire game is on youtube. Had a very brief skim through and they don't look better than us. They also look like a small side, Polworth's set pieces will need to be on point.

Have we been able to confirm whether Hapoel Beer Sheva are a pub team?

With there being a Cobra meeting today to discuss Corona and us playing Hapoel Beer Sheva, it doesn't half give you a thirst!!!

Wonder what the clubs travel arrangements will look like. Presumably flying out tomorrow - but the situation with Israel lockdown at the minute probably makes an overnight unpalatable (not to mention expensive) - but I guess it’s too far to travel out and back in the day, players would be fucked. 
 

straight home after the match I’d think though.

I think UEFA rules mean they have to be in the country 24 hours before kick-off, so they wouldn't be doing that anyway.

I saw Robinson’s interview and he mentioned Jet2. I assume we have chartered a plane from them to fly straight from Glasgow to Tel Aviv. Lets face it sadly Jet2 will have a few spare planes sitting around at the moment. 

Flying out tomorrow AM and I would assume back after the game.

I saw Robinson say that they are staying in a hotel that is currently closed and only being opened for us, so minimal contact with others there.

Glad to see people at the club have been listening to the outrage over the use of non-uniform masks in previous rounds.

Saw Robinson making a big deal of trying to get far enough in the competition to get fans in to see the games. Hes targeting progressing from the group stages in that case.

 

Big ask tomorrow, here's hoping we show up and play to the level we're capable of.

Reminiscing about Panathanaikos game in Athens a few years back and i think it'll be similar conditions.

Game kicked off at like 10pm local time or something like that, and it was 28/29c  even at that time. Team did alright and held their own just about in the first half, but fell apart in the second due to the heat. Difference being that Panathanaikos were clearly several steps above us in terms of squad, performance and experience - Hapoel are maybe only 1 step up on that one.

I think if we put in a decent team performance, it'll all come down to how we adjust to the heat. I would certainly argue that our team is fitter than they were back then.

The power of free speech, does look a lot better though, hopefully performance will be as good.

I know Beer Sheva postponed their game at weekend but I’m hoping that will backfire against them. Having only played 2 league games they may have hit more benefit from actually getting another game under their belt. For sure our performance and result at Aberdeen should have given the players a great boost ahead of this tie. COYW!!!!

Amazing the difference a week makes, after coleraine game a lot of disappointment after the performance.  Now after a great win at Don's we are starting to believe.  A win tomorrow would be absolutely magic....everything crossed.  COYW.

I obviously want us to win but am very much in the wait and see camp as there's no word on a stream and I doubt there will be radio coverage. We could well end up relying on Twitter updates and I struggle to get much enthusiasm for that.

Knowing absolutely nothing about the opposition and not being able to attend the game if we do get through isn't helping get the excitement up either.

Saying that, I'll no doubt be scrambling about tomorrow night looking for any coverage I can find.

There was a teaser twitter yesterday about something being announced shortly with respect to viewing the game.
