Football for Peace

Football for Peace

Those of you who know me, or just look at my profile, will know that I am from Israel. For me, football is all about bringing the edges closer. Closing the gaps that we have in our lives and making the world one happy place. Sure, we are a long way from world peace but I know that one thing that can get billions talking about, no matter where they are from, how much money they have or what there political views are. That thing is Football.

For this Journey, I decided to make a Swiss manager, it had to be right?

So, our hero will be former Swiss international striker - Alexander Frei.

I will be looking for a job now. I will not take jobs that are too good for a starting manager, even if he is an ex-international footballer. Hopefully this will be a good long save!

First Stop

846ff9c43a9e918750ebb4ee1302876a.png

My first stop is going to be in the Palestinian Gaza Strip Lower Division where I will manage Jamaee Rafah. Gaza is a tiny area that is making a lot of noise around, so I though it would be a good place to take my first step into this journey.

2017\2018 - First Half of the Season

580ee270fb107c0de712777fd4b121d1.png

As you could have guessed, not many players want to come play in Gaza. I did manage to get two players despite that. Mahajna (26) will be our goalkeeper at least for this season, while Wael (19) will be our CM for a long time. We have signed a striker who will join us in January but as of now these are our only two real players.

The start was a bit shaky but we did manage to get a decent run towards the end of the first half of the season.

We were tipped to finish in second but to be honest, without any real players what could be expected? Hopefully we will soon get our youth intake which will allow us to get some sort of a system going. We are only 3 points from promotion but as things look now, 3rd place would be alright! Promotion might destroy our progression as we have no chance of competing.

Not a terrible start, can't imagine trying to get into a game this low down, with no one want to join you.

Look forward to seeing more of this.

Yeah it is so weird to be honest! Just going quick for now until I can actually build something.

Hope I can make this a decent save!

Well, there is one standout player and the rest are yet to be known. Hopefully some of them will make real impact this season, and obviously the next!

The top 3 for me are: Taha ; Udatallah ; Hash'an

FFS they can't play because of registration 😭😭

2017/2018 - Second Half of the Season

6e9b2f18fb98a15a26084ebf0020731c.png

These two came in. Romeh is a fairly decent CM and Sarhan is just a great ST. I can see both staying with us for a while.

83791c66b2c144a53c033ebe84386351.png

It really sucks to go out in the both cups to penalties. We really should have done better there! In the league, we did manage a 7 game unbeaten run which is a great sign of things to come I believe.

cb2719d4ab4c8f95b4c950fb895658d2.png

The two loses in the end ruined it for us. We could have possibly came third but it doesn't really matter. I am happy that we are staying in this division as I believe I can build a decent team for the seasons to come. Hopefully next year we will be closer to the title!

2018/2019 - First Half of the Season

Both Amer and Abbas came in before the season started. They both looked decent but currently only Abbas is getting a lot of game time, due to our formation.

db44b6769db24b4b7213a88c3e5cc98e.png

This says it all! We started with the worst result possible, a 3-0 loss but my god what a way to respond. A quick change back to the 41212 saw us gain control and destroy teams on the counter.

a4347500dd5984ccc7c146a70dc9e045.png31f484466650ff922dd2fc25a00c302c.png

Our strikers just can't stop providing each other, and they score a lot as well! Perfect relationship between them and the AP behind them. 23 goals and 11 assists between the two!

dff9f3f127c79f1dfee6e95a0af6bdb5.png

So, we are top, but not by much! I really hope this form continues so we can get the title. The team is working so well together and I am really happy with that. Obviously our opponents aren't great due to most players being 16 but that is also the case for us. Hopefully if we go up it won't be too much for us.

Youth Intake - 2019

f3c60c545086425facf335fd0211499a.pngA fairly exciting group of players again, for obvious reasons.

Top 3 for me would have to be Salame, Taha and Abed

2018/2019 - Second Half of the Season

e3e5d9b48e7b7c95e0c30534b3e7b1b1.png

Ibrahim and Imsies both came in as backups in January. Both have potential to be starters but currently they are for rotation/backup.

ea49a627392946f68d2ccfc948a84a38.png

The second half of the season was nowhere near as good as the first. We lost and drew more than we would have hoped for and it really got us with our backs against the wall. In the Palestine Cup we were unlucky to go out in the second round on penalties, but we are through to the QF of the Gaza Strip Cup!

So, was it enough?

Yes it was! We managed to clinch the title on the last day despite only getting a draw! Thankfully Hilal Gaza lost and we got our hands on the title for the first time in the club's history!

Despite a two and a half month injury, Sarhan basically bossed the league!

Next up - Can we get a late cup run?

2019/2020 - First Half of the Season

17574164e6693ce528dc85f734f62251.png

So, for the first time we have two players leaving us. Both came in last season but failed to make an impact. In came another Taha, this time a RM who is pacey enough to do a job on the wing when needed.

306ddc9e9389c9f340fec006b65cec6f.png

Just look at that start! Never did I think that we will finish the first half of the season with just 1 loss and two draws. This has been an amazing season so far!

1a1c05c8e13eb0d62e897f265cf14072.png
We are second and to be honest, it could go anywhere from here. We had a real chance to finish this half equal with Ittihad Shajeiyah but we failed to score. Hopefully we keep this great form up in the second half!

Youth Intake - 2020

ccc45b1cb04951f14f4581786bda8c26.png

We are starting to see the potentials decreasing on the lower end players due to our player pool growing. There are 6 players who I believe will feature for sure, with the top three being Azberga, Ghnayem and Issa (who looks amazing already!)

2019/2020 - Second Half of the Season

bed823cc322474ab30cec131afb1ad33.png

Three players came in this window to give us more depth after an injury crisis. Aghbaria came in at CM but failed to get much playing time, so I am happy it was only a loan. Sliman has been doing a great job at RB while Najar, who is costing us a ton (don't know who added those ad ons!) has failed to really start scoring as expected!

8ee78ec4a832db27787fbf027616ccda.png

We sent Salman out on loan to get some playing time. He is a TM and we aren't really using him so the loan was a great option. He managed to score 4 goals in 7 games over there so it was fairly good I guess.

77ea6658f3729ebc6d4bb916d69f604b.png

As you can see, this half of the season wasn't as good. 3 losses in the league, two draws and an early exit in the cup. Thankfully we are still in one of the cups so maybe a late cup run?

2b97dd3fb8028ee5b31e9078a557684e.png

We managed to finish second which is a lot better than I expected at the beginning of the season! Hopefully next season we can do one better.

This has been going for the past two/three months. Could be huge for us!

At least we can now sign players! Not a whole lot of investment from the new chairman but we have enough to strengthen the squad.

2020/2021 - First Half of the Season

87921a391ebfa5cf4d97905943d10d4f.png

This summer we only had people leaving. This is mostly down to the fact that not many players want to join us and they weren't good enough for us. Najar is the only one I am sorry about and I have no idea how it happened.

dd3dc57f6e62015d0f09c7ec1ab56a3d.png

Not as good as last season but definitely a great first half of the season for us! only 1 loss (to the current champions) and 3 draws.

39cf9ffe306f7a1344c974d16ff5a8ea.png

2nd is fair. We really messed it up against Kadamat Shatia, where an 80th minute own goal cost us top spot!
