what a joke - can't believe he only got a yellow 

Watt hardly got "clattered" he left his body in to start with (nothing wrong wi that) then the lad tried to retaliate by running into him, but Watt stood his ground and had his elbow up. Both were at it there, yellow both is fine

Need to see Polworth bit more active in attacking. But having said that we seem to have reverted to too many long balls again

Honestly this Isreali team are there for the taking. We have sat off them and gave them far too much respect. Anytime we have went up the park we have looked dangerous. For the next 45 go for their throats.. Absolutely no point sitting back and hitting on the break that park is fucking massive.

Missed the first 7 minute or so.

Hapoel look technically better than us but hadn't shown a lot of cutting edge before they scored.  Great delivery into the box but our defending is really terrible.  Hapoel player gets a free run.

Two or three times when we've been in a good advanced position we've either put in really poor crosses or set pieces.  Our final ball is still a problem.

Looked like we were acquitting ourselves reasonably well and were at least competitive but it's a poor goal at a poor time to give away and since this team can keep possession quite well I think it's going to be a struggle in the second half.

Even at 0-0 I was always a bit worried we'd run out of gas in the, presumably, high temps.

Watt managed to get an elbow on the boys head in the second collision.

Chris Long never fails to let us down. O'Donnell's marking was hopeless. 

Think you’ll find it was Gallagher that got on the wrong side of his man

For 42 mins we looked comfortable, without ever looking like scoring. Then Long with a stupid foul and our usual schoolboy defending kills us. 

We must score next to have any chance. Unfortunately I dont think we have it in us to do so, and we always run the risk of chucking a soft goal in at our end. Very frustrating

Easy to say but can’t help feeling if this was at home, it would be a very different score line. Plenty to suggest we are still in the game. 
Cannot believe that wasn’t a red card

free header for the goal

Gallagher wrong side of his man and wtf was Lamie doing marking nobody, absolute shocking defending, gifted a goal to a team who had hardly been in the game, typical Motherwell.

We are still in it but its a tough ask now

Thought he ran off O’Donnell and Gallagher tried to cover for him.

I’m not one to moan about refs but that should have been red with the reaction. 

Big fan of Long but what a stupid foul to concede. Then O’Donnell shouldn’t be losing his man, hopefully he can make amends in the 2nd half. 

Intae them Motherwell, nothing to fear here.

He did. Gallagher looked to be deeper acting as "cover"

O'Donnell has his hands on the player who scores. Tries to push out, he stands his ground spins in behind and O'Donnell doesn't go with him.  Free header 6 yards out. 

That's how I saw it anyway.

Yip. Madness to be that tight on the edge of the 18 yard box.

Lets face it. As of now, we are out! The likelihood of us scoring even one is practically zero the way we are playing just now. Unfortunately Hapoel do not have Joe Lewis in goal! 

With that being said, why dont we go for their throats from kick off? Get in their faces, get early attacking subs on and give them a fucking test. Id rather lose 4-0 doing that than 1-0 or 2-0 following the current gameplan

Playing a lot better than last Thursday in terms of shape/defending only to then lose a stupid set piece goal. 

They look technically better than us which goes for nothing at 0-0 but may take its toll on us at 1-0 as I reckon they'll be happy to keep us chasing the ball and tire us out..
