    Branko Ivanković Appreciation Thread



    Meet your Persian Love Today
    Thank you Branko for making history today! We wouldn’t be here without you! Kudos to you Branko for ignoring the haters (such as the people who have to go back 12 years to criticize, think they are the all time manager because of FM with their cheetos covered fingers, or people who are so called “fans” with the illusion that Persepolis has been winnng games left, right, and center before you came!) All in all, thank you Branko jaan for your service to Iranian football and taking a huge pivotal role for Iranian Football by taking us to the final.

    Dooset Darim Branko!!!

    As much as he deserves credit, the praise should mostly go to the players. Beiravand making that save and Menshah playing out of his mind is because of the players.

    Overall Branko put the players in a position to win.

    ?????????
    2 back to back Semi Finals in addition to winning league! Amongst other things, please give the credit where it’s due. (Not taking anything away from the players to be clear)

    I question if you would make this thread if Beiravand wouldn't have made his save or Mensah didn't play as well as he did. Coaching only gets you so far. Without PP players playing top level, Brankos coaching would have no effect.

    He did well, but this win was on the players, not on Branko.

    Am i blind? That was one hell of an ugly game. But give credit where credit is due: Beiranvand should change his team ASAP.

    well then the same could be said for literally every coach ever. Branko knew his teams strengths and weaknesses very well. He improved the players fitness and conditioning and they were able to close down spaces for over 90 mins excellently. He found internal solutions, couldnt turn to transfer market, after losing so many starters who went on to becoming key players for country as well. He deserves real credit for that.

    Yes, he deserves credit for what he has done. No doubt he's a good coach for Asian standards and above the vast majority of our Iranian coaches.

    Wait, wait... Improved the fitness? The guys were out of puff at what? The 70minute? The goal they conceded was embarrassing. Guys u are exaggerating. I'm glad Perspolis and therefore Iran won. But that wasn't Brankos credit. It was a mix of luck and one of the best goalies at the moment our very own Beiranvad.

    which was an error between two players. Nothing to do with fitness. Yes, if you watched the game you would notice a clear difference between this years PP and last years PP, even though that version had more quality. They were able to close down spaces even late in the game to prevent al sadd from getting many clear cut opportunities. There is no doubt they rode their luck at times, but to give Branko no credit would jsut be petty

    Brankos success is kind of a fluke.

    Had they not had been sanctioned from fifa. This would be another year where Iranian teams make bunch of moves in the offseason and lose all the team chemstry in time for the second part of the champions league(which falls into the next season) We have had good oppertunities whith different teams over the year but the constent changing of personels wether it being managers or players will never give time for real team chemstry. Which is what PP has right now. This PP team is the same team that picked up the pieces when R.I.P Hadi Norouzi the captain of PP passed away. The team came together and played together for Hadi and that same mentality has taken them this far. Branko just happened to be at the right place at the right time.
