    We have won 9 in a row. There's no luck to that.
    We are the top ranked team from Asia for the majority of the past decade. There's no luck to that.

    Yes luck is sometimes required in ANY sport, but when you're bringing in results time after time, could you still call it lucky?

    I guess Tom Brady, CR7, Leo Messi is lucky for all their accomplishments too..
    Luck is part of the game, but to create a thread and say we won off luck makes no sense.

    Remember that we had more goals (3) than Iraq even had shots. That, my friend, is no luck.

    We won 9 in a row because CQ created a generation of hard working players who would prefer fame over dirty money from PP and domestic clubs.
    The current coach is not stupid, but any non stupid coach could have done that.
    The dream coaching team, if dallals and mafia figures such as Afazoli were not in play, would have been Nekonam and Hashemian and Markar and Karim Bagheri.
    So the only credit the current coach gets is that he is not stupid.

    There's no doubt that Queiroz built the foundation of what we are witnessing, not just through his coaching style, but his knack for, and persistence in, finding and cultivating talent. You can argue that today's team, for the most part, has been able to reach these heights because of his untiring efforts over the years. And it's pretty easy to argue that point as many of the current superstars were directly or indirectly discovered and groomed by him. It's interesting to note that the very same players who are responsible for moving the team forward today were also highly instrumental in producing stunning games against some elite teams in Russia-Taremi, Azmoun, Jahanbakhsh and Ezza, to name a few. These same players have reached the pinnacle of their careers and are playing with more ease and confidence today. And I assume Carlos should partly be credited for their development.

    But that doesn't take anything away from Skocic, who, while not as charismatic as Queiroz, has been able to hold his own. Let's not forget that this coach somehow managed to steer the sinking ship back to safety, stability and, above all, sanity. If I remember correctly, many on this forum were not optimistic about Iran advancing to the next round of qualifications, regardless of Wilmot's replacement. So, in a way, he has so far performed magic. Skocic has also cultivated rapport with his players, particularly with major stars, and has so far managed to steer clear of controversies. He also seems to work well with other members of the training crew and has worked hard at avoiding conflict. He might be the guy who ultimately ended up being at the right place at the right time, but, up to this point, he's been successful in ensuring smooth sailing for the team. (From a tactical point of view, though, I'm a bit concerned about his substitution timing and the existence of plans to improve Iran's possession plays against much more capable teams throughout qualifications and beyond. I guess we'll know more after the game against South Korea.)

    TM has a lot to work on. Getting results against the best teams in the world should be our goal. We will need to play better to achieve this.
