I wrote more than 1500-2000 articles for the web, mainly about football between 2002 and 2013 as well as some about business or self development in 2012-2014. Here is a collection of my best written published material:

“הייתי חולם בלילה שאני מגלה תמונות חדשות” – “I used to dream at night that I reveal new photos” – 15 January 2013

Celebrating 11 years to ‘The Box – TNG’ I interviewed Hagi Marom, one of the authors of the book ‘Diamonds are forever – The Wonderful Story of Maccabi Netanya’ about his affinity to the city of Netanya, the challenges of writing the book in one of the largest sport journalism works of all times in Israel –

Here I review the best and worst of the 2010/2011 season based on our in-house stats and our users’ votes. This kind of content really excites me, it crosses the boundary of the usual news story and creates added extra value your readers will appreciate -


cup-net_haifa11“ולפעמים החגיגה נגמרת”-  “And sometimes the celebration ends” – 11 May 2011

Moments after a third semi cup final loss in 4 seasons, my coverage of the match where Maccabi Haifa proceed to the final after a 3-2 victory over Netanya. Great piece of content that demonstrates ‘The Box – TNG’s coverage style to its fullest -



“לכתוב את ההיסטוריה מחדש” – “Time to rewrite history” – 10 May 2011

I am absolutely passionate about historical and nostalgic pieces of content and cup matches previews. You are naturally drawn to the epic cup fever, finding bits of information and stats that at other occasions don’t really matter. And you serve them on a silver plate to your readers together with crucial information fans are dying to see -

Photo0864“אנחנו קבוצה חזקה גם העונה, אנו נלך ונשתפר” – “We are a strong team this season too and we will keep improving” - 27 October 2009

‘The Box – TNG’ hosted a number of exclusive chat sessions with players from Maccabi Netanya F.C, utilising our experience, creativity and well established connections. This article is my an extensive summary and coverage of the chat between the Netanya fans and the midfielder Shalev Menashe. Such coverages require capturing key questions and answers and are very time consuming, yet fulfilling -

My exclusive photographs from Sofia, Bulgaria, covering the UEFA cup match between Cherno More Varna and Maccabi Netanya F.C. Two of the above colour stories are mine while the match coverage is brought by Sasha Rozenblat, again empowered by these exclusive photos. This was such a journey and an absolute privilege despite the scoreline - and

301625_uefa_cup,640x360,r-1נקבעו היריבות האפשריות של נתניה בגביע אופ”א” – “Possible UEFA Cup opponents have been revealed” – 27 July 2008

This item is full of excitement. I cover every step of the way up to the UEFA Cup draw. When it comes the time to speak about Netanya’s possible opponents I review. But I don’t just write a few lines to get over and done with. I include the teams logos, statistics about them and informing the readers that our mission is to keep them informed up to the decisive draw moment. Every news item counts, every news item can be made into an exciting feature! -

DSC00861x“לירייה נצבעה צהוב” – “Leiria painted in yellow” and “שחרור בוקר” – “Morning entertainment” -16 Aug 2007

This trip to Leiria, Portugal was my first time covering a match abroad and it was a remarkable experience to spend this time with the fans document their journey and really immerse myself in the team spirit. It had celebration all over it and it was funded by sponsorship from Teleline and other firms - and

Historical moment in Portugal. A great 0-0 for Netanya and I was there covering the match as a photographer/correspondent -



IMG_0068“חסר גרוש לילירייה” - a bit of a word game here, ‘Missing Penny to the Lira’ is an Israeli idiom. Leiria is close enough to Lira! The idiom means ‘almost, very close but not quite there’… -  30 August 2007

My first home game UEFA Cup coverage in Kiryat Eliezer, Haifa where U.D. Leiria beat Netanya 1-0. Superb atmosphere. This item demonstrate ‘The Box – TNG’s engaging match coverage style -

Right at the start of the 2006/2007 season I interview the new Maccabi Netanya Owner, Daniel Jammer. I believe in an open interview style and asking what the public, in this case the fans, really want to know. A quality interview is much more than getting a response and putting on a title -

jammer_p1xנתניה של יאמר – וזה סופי” – “Netanya is owned by Jammer – finally” – 31 May 2006

This is one of the most pivotal moments in the Club’s history and as always I am there, giving a full coverage of the event preceding the dramatic transfer of ownership from Asher Alon to Daniel Jammer, a Jewish German businessman. I include a full breakdown of all the events in this intense saga that saw many failures and hours and discussions behind closed doors –
