    What a mess. Bad enough we have IFF, we have to deal with AFC too
    It should still be expected of IFF to push for a venue change starting today every day until next month.
    For all their own incompetence when it comes to prioritizing MLS > Legionnaire's, USSF literally almost tore FIFA a new one over the WC 2022 one and Sepp Blatter is gone. We can't seriously lobby on equally incompetent AFC and get one measly venue change?

CQ opted to use him as a starting CB for the tournament. We both know how that panned out. Vahid Amiri and Ramin Rezaeian too…..both had no TM caps before the prep for AC and used them on big stages.
    Another perfect example is Majid Hosseini…..the guy had no TM caps before the WC and used him the whole tourney pretty much.
    Ali beiro became the starter for TM in WCQs when at the time haghighi was becoming the first established TM keeper in Europe.
    There are even more but I think I’ve made my point at this point.
    …..and I’ll be fair….Skocic still has time to do that too. But so far, he hasn’t shown faith in not just youth but even in his team especially in these last 2 games with how he managed his subs.
    1- CQ;
    true
    But WHEN and at what stage did CQ start to use these youngsters?
    in comfortable situations where we had already qualified or got enough points? or in do-or-die games?
    That is what I was referring to.


    2-
    also true that skocic has just started and may do this too (he has already done with hardani, sarlak and ghaedi.

    But we cannot forget WHERE and in what state of TM campaign he came in.
    with 3 do or die games to even qualify for the final stage, I seriously doubt the likes of guardiola or klopp would trust untested, debutants, let alone CQ.

    then came the final round. and he has already given debutes to 2-3 players.

    so this critic of him not allowing youngsters to play is false.

    but politically speaking it will be very IRONIC if Iran cites "violence & insecurity" when it is IRAN's proxy terrorist group, hezbollah causing all that violence & insecurity (butt sore bcoz they lose shit load of parliament seats) .. most probably on IRAN's orders anyway!!

    I think thats because it happened while we were there, now its like a civil war type scenario where it could possibly be unsafe for referees and officials to travel there.

    There is no way the match is going to take place in Beirut

    What part do any of Team Melli's players play in this situation? If anything, they'll be a prime target for people of the other side to attack them/take them hostage etc knowing that IFF doesn't get them security.

    That's what I'm saying man, no way they are allowing Lebanon to host the match against Iran! Would have to be neutral location like UAE or Qatar.

    Yasin Salmani isn't gonna learn by sitting on the bench, sometimes you have to take off the training wheels and just see how he does. With Sepahan, Salmani has proven to be a midfielder of very HIGH caliber and one that is already better than Nourollahi
    Skocic sort of reminds me of Branko of TM coaching era who would not wanna touch his starting line up, no would he risk playing younger talents.

    I’m not a Skocic fan, but he is in no position to experiment right now. I get where he is coming from. Hopefully if we win the next 2 games, then he has a bit more flexibility.
