  • Now that Maccabi Tel-Aviv has bought Atar they have set their sights on Barak Itzhaki as their next signing.
  • Douglas Da-Silva is headed for French club OSC Lille after they paid Hapoel Tel-Aviv 2.5 million Euros for 80% of the rights to the player. This is one of the biggest transfers in Israeli History.

    First, I just want to say this is a great blog. Keep it up!

    Second, I’m a little confused about Maccabi TA’s forward situation. For next year they will have Mayuka, Colautti, Atar, and maybe Itzhaki. How many forwards can they have when they will probably play with a formation that includes two forwards? Will two of these forwards play on the wings?

      Thanks, tell your friends about it.
      Well you’re exactly right, although they are likely to release some of their forwards, Yavruyan and Azran to be exact. So without including Itzhaki, their forward situation is Colautti, Avidor, Mayuka and Atar. It’s likely that Mayuka and Atar could play on the wings. It will be too competitive of a situation if Itzhaki joins, but I don’t think he will for that reason and others. He’s been waiting to hear the interest for him abroad.
