    Hope that the reluctant Israelis above finally see the big picture that they can progress their careers and Israel’s national team’s fortunes in countries with a far higher standard of football than the Israeli league.

    I agree for the most part, but there aren’t that many leagues that have “far higher standard” than the Israeli League. After you get past the top 10 leagues in Europe then the gap in quality narrows.

    I also think that the Israeli League could raise their level by allowing more foreigners and changing the foreign import quota.

      I agree with you regarding the standards of the leagues the major difference is that salaries are much higher in the other leagues, although, if a player goes to something less than a top ten league, like Scotland, Belgium, or Greece then they are much more likely to be successful than let’s say in Germany or Spain.

    I don’t really blame some of them for being in reluctant, Oded Gavish has not proven himself at the top level in Israel, going to a bigger club there will help him gain some European experience, and help him measure himself as a player..
