    My thoughts on the upcoming qualifier against Iraq

    The away game against Iraq will by far be our most crucial qualifying game so far. The pressure is definitely on us, since we at least need a draw or a win in order to keep our chances alive in this group. So here's what I think:

    Iraq will go all out in front of their own fans because that's what they usually do against us. In addition to that, they now got the home advantage. We haven't played in Basra as long as I can remember, so it will be on a very hostile and unknown ground for us. The game will be even tougher than the one in Manama, that's for sure. So the best scenario would be that we go into that game with a conservative defensive game plan, ideally two DM's covering for the defense. We can sit deep, and counter attack. With a tie, we would still have a good chance to progress since the remaining games will be at home.

    My preferred line up against Iraq, with Dejagah as captain to lead the team and in order to prevent our boys from getting emotional:

    Beiranvand
    Mohammadi - Pouraliganji - Hosseini - Moharrami
    Ebrahimi - Ezatolahi
    Dejagah
    Jahanbakhsh - Azmoun - Taremi

    This would be the most suited team to take on a motivated Iraq side. With a combination of experienced players and youth, we can put a better performance than we did this week.

    Your thoughts?

    we need to play ultra defensive and hope to get a point there
    Iraqis are gonna dribble past our players with ease
    I mean Rezaian doesnt even know how to tackle, Hajsafi lacks basic football skills he couldnt even make it in a 3rd Bundesliga team (which was playing in 2nd back then), Ansarifard misses a free header from 2 metres against cambodia

    Individual flaws aside this Team Melli seems to be lacking the team spirit which CQ implemented

    I would seriously consider just playing U23 players regardless if we dont make the WC
    A team who cant beat a team like Bahrain is just a waste of a spot in the World Cup

    i think with the way Wilmots likes to play, its definitely going to be an attacking formation. problem is wilmots isn't a great tactical genius, and also I do think with (hopefully) dejagah back in, hopefully, jahanbakhsh picks up his mess and starts to play as a grown-up instead of having out the lazy guy in England.. and hopefully ghoddos being able to play... we could see a very good line up.
    I really haven't seen moharrami play that often so I cannot really comment on his play, but he is definitely doing something right in Croatia. bring him in the next call up, hopefully he has the same or better attacking and defending attributes than rezaeian.
    let go of Ehsan hajsafi, he's a big flaw in the whole team! the kid can't shoot for shit and his crosses are not placed well and his corners simply suck ass. bring in ezzatolahi (if he plays more for his club) and gets his shit together rather than hanging out the persian rapper in Belgium.
    ghoddos would be a great asset to the team, keep mohebbi but don't start him. since his positioning was a little bit off because the lack of chemistry. Wilmots must also talk with khanzade and hosseini so they communicate with eachother because it was catastrophic in the match against bahrain.
    anyway, what i would think and how i would do it
    moharami khanzade hosseini milad
    ---------------ezatolahi
    -----nourolahi ------------- ebrahimi
    -----------Dejagah/ghoddos
    JB -------------------------------------- Taremi
    ----------------azmoun
    although other formations would probably be way better i just chose something fast, but iun the end of the day, its not what we think that matters since we cannot really influence the coach, we'll see when the TM list comes out. btw when is the next match?

    Your thoughts?
    I would not start Ezzatollahi, as he's still big question mark, and we can't take risks. Last game he played for Eupen, he looks way out of shape. I would start Nourollahi instead.
    Dejageh would be good off the bench, but not sure what condition he will be in. Not sure who would take that spot, maybe Amiri? (definitely not Mohammadi, the is guy way too selfish).

    The rest looks fine.

    we need him badly, our attacking midfield have zero creativity, and we need him to come to replace karim, we need to play 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 or 3-4-1-2 what ever way we need 2 forwards, we need to feed azmoun balls, look at him in zenith he keep scoring cause they give him the ball
