    Exit from ASIA CUP 2019 - End of an era?

    Just like after every failure we come here and discuss, curse, bitch and twist.
    So I doubt we’d do anything different this time as well.

    I doubt we'd have CQ as our coach after this.
    We all shd recognize his services to Iran and TM and give him credit for whatever he's done, good or bad.


    Lets face it. For all our defensive, valiant games at the WCs that seem to be highlights of CQ’s tenure in Iran, when it came to games we’re supposed to play offensive and eventually WIN, we failed more than succeeded.

    My opinion is if we keep this glossy, shiny cover of stats/ranking that hides the reality of our football aside, we simply are not what we think we are.
    I seriously doubt Japan, Korea or even Saudis give a flying f**k about ranking in Asia, while they always have their eyes on the ball and aim to do well where it matters; on the pitch.

    So before we change this guy or that system or …, first we must do a couple of other things:

    1- We HAVE TO ignore such shiny useless objects (stats & ranking). No stats or ranking ever helped a striker score a goal or a defender time his tackle. NOT ONCE in the history of the game.

    2- We also must acknowledge our failings at such moments are the result of wrong strategies by our own IFF and powers that be.
    Those who hide behind the numbers and stats, while effectively DENY our TM’s from ever raising itself or becoming better.
    I’m talking about money.
    It takes money to bring in or play GOOD teams that push us, expose our weaknesses, beat us and force us to come back from behind.

    Without money, we are forced to play Palestine and Syria and … who never ever help hone our teams. Even when we beat them, we’re basically pulling the wool over our own eyes.

    We need the funds. The same funds that the gov and regime denies us, while it sends BILLIONS to Syria, yemen, Lebanon, … while pocketing the rest for their children living luxuriously in the west.

    You fans who cry and feel depressed why our team is incapable of stepping up, better know who is behind this misery. Our players have the potential. But are never given the chance to reach it.
