    Seems Omar Abdulrahman tore his ACL - if it is true, he will be out of Asian Cup.

    AbdulRahman is one of the best players in Asia only Iranians will say otherwise lol. Even then though, UAE would not be a team for us to fear. No team in Asia is for that matter - we have to prove we are the best by lifting the trophy in January no excuses this time!

    I dont know why people are adamant that if we dont win the trophy its a failure, and then many people say CQ would deserve to be let go.

    Football doesnt work like this. Nobody has an inherent right to lift a trohpy. I never heard iranians talking like this for the past 40 PLUS YEARS that we never won asian cup.

    Like last time, anything can happen.

    For me, Japan are the favorites, with us behind them, followed by S. Korea and Australia. I think that the bare minimum requirement for this team given the way the brackets are lined up is semi finals. There we will meet Japan or Australia, and anything can happen. Personally I fancy us vs Australia, but think Japan will be very dangerous and difficult, although their tactics do play into our hands more.

    True, anything can happen in football (case in point, Iraq winning the continental championship). However, I think many (yours truly included) have high expectations of TM this time, given that we have so many young, promising players spread all over Europe and doing good work for their clubs. We also have a seasoned, level-headed coach who knows what he's doing, and finally we have a federation that at least is trying to do some good (namely Taj, with new training field, some decent friendlies, showing interest in outcomes).

    If you put all those variables together, with the drought for 40 years...yes, the expectations are high of our beloved TM and CQ.

    high expectation is one thing. We all have high expectations for this crop. But this pre-defining of what is success for us being limited to ONLY winning the cup, and anything else is a failure and proof that CQ is overrated and overpayed, is going to create added pressure and not the ideal environment for TM to succeed. Like I said, getting to semi final is the bare minimum for me. We really should top the group and beat the likes of uzbekistan and china that we meet in the following rounds. But, meeting Japan or Aussie in semi final is a big big game. Im sure TM would give a good performance, but in these big tight games anything can happen.

    As you noted in my post, I have nothing negative to say about our boys or CQ, only respect. So while there are some on this forum who call for heads rolling any time we don't win a match, there are others who fully support the team and coach, but still have our hearts set on some spectacular results!
