    Should we participate in the Asian Cup 2019?



    Meet your Persian Love Today
    IMO we should not even participate in the Asian Cup 2019 due to many reasons such as:

    1. Very difficult to get a decent kit manufacturer because of sanctions

    2. Lack of motivation. (Ex. Gucci retired. Azmoun temporarily retired. I followed Iranian newspapers in last a few months and several players such as Ebrahimi, Amiri, Montazeri, Shojaei, etc are thinking about retirement as well)

    3. The training field of the national team is not ready yet.

    4. CQ did not sign any contract yet. If he leave, I think we should bring another foreign coach with less money.

    5. Nothing miracle will happen in next 4 months. So It is better to not participate or send combination of B team and U23 team and start focusing on next World Cup Qualifiers now. Do not forget that Asian Cup is not a place for us to earn respect. For us, the best place to earn respect is World Cup. So World Cup Qualifiers 2022 is a lot more important than Asian Cup 2019 for me.

    Due to the reasons I mentioned, It is possible for us to not have a good Asian Cup which may impact on our WCQs 2022 negatively. So It may be better for us to shift the attention to the WCQs 2022 now and sacrifice the Asian Cup 2019 for it.

    What do you guys think now?

    I am more TM fan than you. I grew up with it. I supported Iran Soccer NT since childhood and always support it.

    Why? Come on. Nothing miracle will happen in next 4 months. If we do not do very well in the next Asian Cup which is possibility due to the reasons I mentioned, It may have bad impact on our WCQs 2022 games. For example, we may change the coaches frequently again. So I really think Asian Cup 2019 is a pointless tournament for us at the moment and we should now shift the focus on WCQs 2022 and solving the problems such as kit, training field, etc.

    1. Uhlsport just signed

    2. We have forwards to replace Azmoun and Gucci. Your sources are Iranian and therefore unreliable.

    3. Have you not seen the training pics?

    4. CQ is staying.

    5. We can focus on AC and WC simultaneously and be fine

    So, no. Let's enjoy AC with a full TM

    I say let's send our bowling team instead.

    What a loser mentality. If you don't try, you're guaranteed to fail. If you try, there's a chance to succeed.

    Your post is even more ridiculous if one recalls that Iran is arguably the best team in Asia (though Japan would no doubt dispute that).

    Also, in football, even a team that is, on paper, unlikely to succeed can shock. By your reasoning, teams without a realistic chance shouldn't attend tournaments. Greece shouldn't have attended the EUROS in 2004 and Croatia shouldn't have attended the WC in 1998 or this year too, I take it?
