    My 2 cents on wilmots as someone who follows the Belgian red devils closely.

    He was Leekens assistant coach before finally getting the Belgium manager job when Leekens left. Belgium improved a lot under wilmots compared to their time with Leekens. Now was it due to Wilmots qualities as a coach or the Belgian players were reaching their peaks? Can't really tell. He's really good at bringing a team together, create a good atmosphere within a team. He's a hard worker, you can't take this away from him.

    On the other hand, it's safe to say that Belgium would have not looked so desperate with Martinez on the bench in the game against Argentina which sent Belgium home in the 2014 WC. He was often spot on while making subs. Keeping players on the bench hungry but again the depth of the Belgian bench was good enough to change a game against the likes of Algeria, etc. The same can't be said in big games. The euro 2016 was a real disaster, losing to Wales 3-1 or 4-1 I can't remember.

    All in all, he's not a genius when it comes to tactical choices and managing a team during a game. I even remember something quite shocking, the Belgian national team wasn't training at all on their set pieces. He used to explain this choice by saying that it's a waste of time when you don't have enough time to prepare players during international breaks. Well, Belgium couldn't score a goal from a set piece against a decent team in front.

    I'd say that his pros are his work rate, keeping players involved and having a good atmosphere within a large group. His game preparations were usually good too. His cons are his stubbornness, not reactive enough during a game when his A plan isn't going well and more importantly he's not the smartest coach to have on a bench during the game. He's also a short tempered guy, I seriously don't know how he will deal with the IFF and other thugs around getting involved in our football.

    Thank you for your measured analysis and background. Probably the most useful summary of Wilmots I've seen here so far.

    Thank you for your well informed post I think this sounds very fair and on point after doing my own research on him these last few days. I said it in the beginning of when his name was being thrown around and I’m l will say it again...CQ was no different than Wilmots in terms of being a controversial figure where majority of the ppl didn’t like him and he had some alleged drama relating to players. Let’s hope he can turn out similarly too

    Should hopefully increase likelihood of some friendlies so at least we can recalibrate our expectations and get used to being served up shite football once again after a decade of spoils. What a time to be alive.

    I don't know what to make of this purported hire, don't know much about him as a coach other than dcpp's insightful post. However, let's give him a chance before we crucify him. He is the new coach of our beloved TM and he deserves a chance to prove himself.

    Again, I give credit to IFF for pulling this off AND arranging two friendlies against decent Asian opponents in June. This will be a great test run for TM since the loss in the Asian Cup, and will give MW a chance to show his worth early on. If all goes according to the reports, signing MW and arranging friendlies with SK & Syria is not at all a bad way to restart our continued evolution post-CQ.

    Good choice, i think he will do well for TM! He is experienced, has worked with Dick Advocaat, and has a strong and authoritarian personality like Queiroz, which is something we need!

    Guys, let's look ahead. The guy is 50 years old and full of energy. He's had failure before (just like CQ before joing us) and is hungry!

    At the very least it will be a breath of fresh air to hopefully see TM having an attacking style after such a long time.

    I was quite down and kinda disappointed upon hearing the news but now, slowly I'm getting positive and hopeful!

    I remember many of the Iranian football fans were also not happy when CQ became the TM's coach so what's new ?????? nothing !!!!!!

    I say it again, based on the current situation of our Government and country , we should be very happy about Wilmots coming to Iran.
