    If you pay close attention to the top, it's because none of our games' analysis data is available on scouting platforms.

    And before you go blaming this on the government, keep in mind that this is a cultural issue. Our national team players have to wash and reuse their jerseys because there is so much theft, ignorance, and a general indifference towards progress in our culture. It's super easy to get a domestic (or foreign) kit provider to provide enough clothing. These issues exist because no one cares, everyone's a critic, and no one wants to build infrastructure.

    Iranians hate bookkeeping. Any sort of record keeping is viewed as suspicious.
    This and the inability to stay in line are why we're messed up

    I mean sure, more analytics would help Iranian football... but a lot of AFrican and South American talents farm leagues don't really have advanced statistics either.

    Yeah, you could unleash terrabytes of xG data onto the world and it still wouldn't be enough to make the likes of Ghaedi and Nouro look like an attractive proposition for European teams. And then we have the added problem of PGPL players having an average player age of 53 which, again, makes the haj aghas a little less attractive to potential European suitors.

    Is there a good sample from other countries that you could link to here? I am curious how it would look like.

    The data is collected though. Metrica for example has it all.
    I just think clubs aren't interested in dealing with Iran like they would most European or even South American clubs.

    African players are not a good example, as they go through a route which is not really club based.

    Quoting from the article:
    "The leagues selected for this analysis are the following: Qatar Stars League, United Arab Emirates Pro League, Saudi Professional League, Japanese J1 League, South Korean K League and Chinese Super League. The Iranian Gulf Pro League would have been an interesting one to include but it lacks complete data on Wyscout and others like the Indian and Australian leagues missed out as their level is considered slightly lower."

    The article goes through their analysis. I'd say most of the leagues they analyzed are comparable to ours.

    I don't think that's true. From what I can tell, Metrica is used by very few clubs in comparison to Wyscout or Opta, and the main differentiator is that Metrica's data analysis is automated based on video, which is probably rudimentary at the moment at best, and also maybe why it's not widely used.

    Our players don't get discovered because the cost of discovery is so incredibly high when there's no data available online. The reason that so many players from Japan and Korea consistently get transferred over to smaller European teams at a younger age is because their easily scoutable, and relatively 'cheap' in comparison to players from other leagues.

    I'm willing to bet most of our players who played in Belgium only managed to do so because Kaveh Rezaei caught the attention of a few clubs, and some of them were willing enough to reach out to agents in Iran and do some digging. How else would they find out about someone like Gholizadeh or Delfi?
