    Meet your Persian Love Today
    What is the point of scheduling a friendly vs a war torn country AND on a non FIFA day?

    Yes, yes, i know beggars cant be choosers blah blah blah but you might as well put a big cancelled stamp as soon as you entered into this friendly with Libya.

    Libya wasn't chosen because it's "good" or "cheap". It was chosen because it's a North African country like Morocco and we only have so many choices from that region. Egypt was out of the question due to politics so that leaves us with just Algeria, Tunisia and Libya. It was worth taking a chance and since it wasn't scheduled on a FIFA day we didn't risk wasting one of those days on a game that was likely to be cancelled. No big deal. Move on.

    Arab conspiracy against Iran. Don’t be surprised if the other Arabs cancel too. They may allow one to happen so they can scout us for Morrocco.

    Probably was never really Confirmed to begin with ..!?
    Folks in IFF have this nasty habit of announcing Friendlies before it’s really finalized ..!
    This ain’t the first time & won’t be the last cancelation.
    In fact I’d be very impressed if half the friendlies they’ve been announcing actually materialize.

    AND DON"T FORGET...

    How about fighting for his guys against a federation that before him was used to sending the team to a village in Austria and calling it a "foreign camp" while the traveling officials spent the players' money on their own entourage?
    How about building a national training and coordination center for our national teams at every age level AND THEN fighting the federation to take it back after they gave it away?
    And I know most CQ bashers aren't old enough to remember, but how about building a team that for the first time in decades actually played as a team? A team that for the first time relied on a system rather than a few stars and wasn't run by competing cliques of players?
    You don't have to LOVE the guy or think he's perfect. But the bitterness and hatred some Iranians have against this man is just plain disgusting. It's based on nothing but ignorance and ingratitude...and in many cases a pathetic streak of racism and xenophobia they try to pass off as "nationalism".
    Adding to Krol's excellent post...

    How about building a team with discipline for the first time....getting rid of selfish & self-possessed players who dictated to the coach and picked players.

    How about having a team that has a confident, strong defence for the first time...not one that gave every Iranian a heart attack anytime the ball got near our goal. A team whose defencemen don't give up big time Sooti's in every game. Even experienced established players used to make childish errors (Khakpoor in 97-98!).

    How about setting a new standard in fitness...we actually have some players that run >10k regularly in games? Even our PGL games are being played at better standards.

    How about pushing every mamma loving Iranian football player to move to Europe...we've never had this many at anytime in our football history?

    How about introducing and developing so many talents that now we have two players for every position...in some cases 3 or 4? Even goalkeepers are not safe.

    How about introducing meritocracy to Iranian football? Every player in every team knows that if they consistently play at a high level, they have a strong chance of getting invited to TM?

    This is CQ's last few months with TM and now all the rejects and critics, past and present, are no longer afraid and raising their voices. They all want TM to fail badly so that they can rub it in all of our faces. But those of us who have followed TM for longer than a decade can tell you that we have never had a team with so much cohesion, discipline, fitness, and intelligent strategy...at least not in the post-revolution era. Our famous 1998 team was a disaster in defence and we hardly could beat Asian teams. Got to the WC taking the longest route of any team culminating in one of the luckiest wins in football history in Melbourne. If that crazy dude had not ripped our net...
