    It's John Duerden. He's pretty solid when it comes to Asia or Iran. Especially the past few years.

    He knows the most out of Asian football and Iranian football.

    Some people here hate him because his wife is Korean and he criticised Iran for a few years on twitter apparently, but now in all of his articles he says Iran is the best team and well in front of Korea. Some of his articles in the world cup:

    Graded Iran first out of asian teams: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    also check this out: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I must have missed the years when some people on this site say he was trolling, because since 1997 when I first read one of his articles, he has arguably been the most learned and fair pundit when it comes to Asian and Iranian football, and has hyped our players when no one else was doing so (Mahdavikia pre-98, Karimi, Nekounam, Azmoun, Ezatollahi). For that alone, I respect him and if he wants to eat Kimchi on his wife's back whilst screaming for the Taeguk warriors when Korea plays Iran then he can do so. If anything, the fact that he supports Korea because of his wife makes his hyping of Iranian players over the last two decades even more impressive, but I guess some guys here won't be pleased until he divorces his wife.

    BTW check out how he highlighted PAG from the group stages, might be worth sharing this on social media: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Check his posts from 2011-12'ish. He was extremely pompous about Korea. He would write articles saying "the big 3 of Asia - Korea, Japan, and Australia" and he was very dismissive of Iran.

    Yes, we were weaker at that time, but the guy's obvious Korean bias was apparent then. It made Iran look bad to be a 3 time Asian Cup champion, but omitted from conversations of Asian powerhouses.

    Now that we demand his attention, and Korea is in a bad period, he has no choice but to heap praise on us, as we have established ourselves firmly at the top of the Asian pyramid.

    I do not like that wishy-washy behavior. I remember I tweeted to him around 2011 asking why he omits Iran from his powerhouse label, and he says we are not on the same level as Korea, Japan, and Australia.

    He was right, we are above their level. The sleeping giant awoke, and now he must kiss our hineys in order to live in reality. If we were where Australia is now, he would still omit us from all of his best of Asia articles. That is clear bias in my mind. We are Korea's greatest rival (his favorite Asian team), and wait for us to be in a down period. He will again forget about all of these accomplishments and our history as he did in 2011.

    Good evening all,

    Just saying Hi from Wales. I'm a longstanding Brighton fan and saw your link on NSC. (I read there but don't post). Just wanted to say that I'm very excited about having Alireza with us, watching his highlights reel from AZ was very interesting. I can imagine him and Jose Izqierdo causing quite a few problems for defenders next season.

    (Just in case you wonder btw, Gwyl is Seagull in Welsh and Caergybi is the Welsh name of Holyhead where I live.)

    All the best, look forward to visiting again.
    Mark

    Welcome to the forum Mark. Hope you stay around and post more often mate.

    Nice to know a bit of Welsh. Those are the only words I got to learn today.

    OK, I missed that period, but it seems to have pissed off a lot of Iranians.

    All I know that in every single article he has written over the last year or two, he has put Iran well ahead of anyone else (and of course the articles that he wrote in the 1997-2000 period which had Iran on top).

    He, and only he.

    Other big asian pundits put Iran perhaps in a top 3 including Japan and Australia, but they interchange this sometimes. And other (non asian football) pundits in the UK don't really know much about Iran, but hopefully are learning more having seen our european-style phalanx unit for this world cup and the argentina '14 game.

    So he put Iran below Korea, Japan and Australia in 2011? Maybe we had the players, but the team we had in 11/12 was nothing compared to what we have now. If anything, I'm glad that he shat on us in that period, because we upped our game and now have the most disciplined team in Asia, with a fantastic future. And he appreciates that more than anyone else. I don't get why you guys are so salty about this. Its literally 2-3 years he dumped on us, the rest of the time his articles and hype has really helped iranian football and players.

    I agree that he has recently been posting positive things about Iran, but all I’m saying is he HAS to now. I’m happy with anyone promoting TM, but it is hard to forget his previous articles.

    It is like a Boston Celtics pundit tagging on the Lakers when they were in their down period these last few years and saying Boston is a class above their rival Lakers. Then, when the Lakers get Lebron James, the pundits start praising and kissing the Lakers dynasty, and suddenly remember the team’s history. This is actually what has happened in basketball recently, and that bothers me too.

    The obviously biased sportswriters have moments where they praise their rival, especially when it is due. It does not whitewash all of the dumb insults like “no players want to play in LA anymore...”, “LA’s management is horrible, etc.” There should always be respect given to teams who are historically successful. Not only when they are in their strong periods and joke about them when they are weakened. He has done this, and for that reason, I give his articles the same weight I give Bill simmons articles for the nba. People don’t forget.
