    I hope I'm wrong and that this is just a first "getting to know you" game for Wilmots but my eye doesn't drink water.
    It doesn't hurt to have faith

    Of course, Wilmots can be better judged once we play those gritty AFC games in the 2nd/3rd round. Especially if we play a tricky opponent like UAE/Iraq/Uzbekistan in an away game who are generally not so great but turn it up when they play us. I think Wilmots doesn't know how lucky he is that Qatar is already qualified. One less team to pull all the grassrolling tricks I bet we will see over the next 2 years.

    Well, we have had first friendlies in CQ's era as well but we hardly experienced these kinds of holes in our defense. The whole idea of his defensive strategy was for TM to always press the opponent ball holder with 2 men, while others gave support in case of a mistake by those 2 men. Today was the first time in a long time I saw almost a one on one situation in front of our goal. and this was from the lousy Syria. Again, I hope I'm wrong but I guess we will be better tested against S. Korea. I'm sure they are looking for a real revenge after all these years.

Come on guys, be fare. It's a descent friendly considering that we will face such teams many time during the WC qualifications. I have a sense that Wilmots is gradually introducing attacking football while keeping the team defensive cohesion and unanimity of spirit in place.

    Go TM!
    Hez e baad mentality that affects us in many aspects of life: sports, socially, religiously, politically, economically, ect. Sticking to core principles & patience are a fade of the past.

    Love this pic for many reasons, but mostly for the Unity it portrays:

    It's obviously too early to make any major judgments amigos but if I'm not mistaken, the last time we beat any team that's not ranked in the 150 range with a 3+ goal margin (never mind 5 goal margin) was Bahrain in 2011 a few months after CQ had taken over.

    In retrospect, the future from that point on was pretty bright so I remain optimistic that we are on the same trajectory and Wilmots will just build-on or continue CQ's legacy adding the attacking dimension that we have badly needed against weaker teams.

    Wilmots is obviously committed to bringing and testing new players (like CQ was, although maybe not as much in the last 2 years with major tournaments around the corner) which has been and will be a very good thing for our football short, medium and long term.

    BIG Congrats to Sayyadmanesh... to score your first goal for TM not just in your first game but after just 9 minutes was brilliant but to become the youngest ever goal scorer for TM in the process... WOW!

    What I really liked about this match was that the attacks (and therefore goals) were coming from everywhere... little Tiki-taka through the middle, low crosses, high-crosses and when possible scissor-kicks!

    Looking forward to the Korea game and a little more solid opposition to see how we do against stronger opponents.

    CQ laid the foundation for future success with the discipline he put forth. Wilmots will basically take that and sprinkle his ideology on top of it.
    Our players were already great defensive minded players with CQ, so now you add that attacking mind with Wilmots and you got recipe for success.

    I am and will be always grateful for the amazing contributions of CQ to our football. This has given TM a solid foundation to build on. At the same time we need to have a forward looking approach and focus on the future. I am impressed by Wilmots approach so far:

    1- Bringing in Hashemian as his left hand is brilliant. Being consummate professionals, both of them have approached their relationship with 100% responsibility causing a great chemistry that has been evident in all the photos, videos, interviews and now the first game.

    2- While focusing on the same structure that CQ built, he has started to make his own mark in a piecemeal fashion by:
    a- Introducing a more free flowing and attacking football
    b- Brining in the most talented young prospect with a great result in 10 minutes

    3- Showing genuine care for unity of the team and individual connection with all players. His body language and behavior shows compassionate leadership! You can see this in the videos and photos and how he thanks his players, hugs them and is really present to them.

    Overall, Wilmots has demonstrated wisdom and leadership in his first week with TM. I am impressed.

    Go TM!

    Clearly a different psychological approach than “we are the underdogs”. It will be interesting to see how Wilmots prematch strategies become evident.
