    Let's first see if we can keep our coach or not!!! He might very well leave if he doesn't get his money.

    If we field our best 11, I really don't see how Iraq can beat us. We are superior.

    yea, TM needs to get back to their old gheyrati ways when backs against the wall..!! we simply are a better team, so long everyone plays their hearts out and doesnt wimp-out on the game day, we should well at least manage a draw ..!
    just dont come up with over-elaborate tactical changes and do not start any rookie, inexperienced players if a healthy veteran alternatives are available..except maybe HajSafi who has shown a tendency to be extra mistake-prone in critical match-ups..! and Ansarifard who often goes in la la land and MIA in such critical mach-ups..!

    If we lose to IRAQ and win rest of our games, in only one scenario we will top our group, that is , IRAQ ties Bahrain in Iraq. It is a MUST WIN situation.

    i hate mathematical equationing and over elaborate hypothetical future game W/L calculating...!!
    that huge 14-0 win gives me much hope still ...considering how large of a role GD is playing in advancement to next phase..!!
    the last thing we need is to put an unrealistic "Must Win" tagline on this very tricky fixture in a hostile setting vs a highly motivated and tough to beat opponent ...which frankly we havent been able to beat for quiet sometimes now, even when in far greater shape as a team.!!

    conservative (counter-attacking) game approach and ultimately aiming for a Draw is the way to go..... tbh, it shoulda been our overall approach in the last the last freaking game vs Bahrain where we had never managed to ever win before..!!

    a smart TM coach and a non-emotional and critically thinking TM fan should know and realize that we simply are not as good of a team as our Number 1 asian ranking may be suggesting or the fact that we are not even half as great of an attacking team as many TM fans have fancied us to be over last few decades that ive been following TM..!!

    I think you’re taking his definition of “must win” a little wrong - it sounds like he is saying it’s a must win in terms of importance it has on the qualifying phase, not bc playing Iraq is a walk in the park.

    It will come down to the psyche of the TM players , pure and simple. Can they handle and compartmentalize the following:

    1. You’re playing in a hostile environment
    2. You may be losing your coach
    3. You are no longer group leaders
    4. You are the underdogs

    At the end of the day a simple mathematical table decides which team Moves on. The approach that you suggested was CQ game plan, we don't have him.

    We also don’t have his ability to psychologically prepare the players. FFS, he made them (and us) realize we could beat Spain and Portugal (which they nearly did!).

    Let's see how Wilmots respond to the reports that he is leaving,
    Before every qualifying game, CQ always said, Now we are focusing on the game and not his pay or his contract.

    If Wilmots heart is not with the team he should not coach the DO OR DIE game.
