    Brexit negotiations ... disaster looming in the horizon.

    Really? I mean fucking really? I'm quite literally echoing what Behrooz just said in the previous post, comments which people who support Remain seem to get all the time. I don't get to fucking respond without you accusing me of tooting my own trumpet for just repeating what he said? I mean...

    Brexit negotiations ... disaster looming in the horizon.

    Nah bro, I'm really hoping it's going to be OK with just a minor initial economic hit and that all of us "pseudo-intellectuals" and "elites" will be proved wrong (e.g. governor of the nation's bank, pretty much every economic and social thinktank from the political spectrum). At the end of the...

    Brexit negotiations ... disaster looming in the horizon.

    Pat Condell Soroush, really? A fucking failed comedian who is pretty damn illiterate and has spent the last 10 years shouting the sort of shit which would get both you and Behrouz (probably even me) deported back to Iran. He's a kind of Alex Jones, Katie Hopkins sort of angry nutjob, with...

    Googoosh at Hollywood Bowl

    Guys, you keep mentioning Kamran and Houman, perhaps we need a separate thread for these legends? For the time being...

    Tehran Taboo - anyone seen it?

    Has anyone seen this film? Is previewing for general release today, and comes out properly in the UK on Friday (has previously been shown in other places with limited release). I had tickets for the preview today at British Film Institute (alongside a Q+A with the director) but was far too tired...

    Messi vs. Ronaldo all time statistics and records since 2002/03

    Interesting, the 4 who went for Ronaldo were ones who were working with him (or had worked with him) with the curious exception of Pele Original Ronaldo went for Messi without hesitation

    "I love Iran" - Western academics who are advocates of Persian/Iranian history

    Professor Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones is a Welsh professor of Persian Studies at Cardiff University. He has written multiple books on Persia (and has lots of other interests in history too. I asked him his favourite part of Iran "Well Takht-e Jamshid because of my research interest, but my...

    "I love Iran" - Western academics who are advocates of Persian/Iranian history

    I thought I'd make a thread to raise awareness of, and celebrate, the advocates of Iranian/Persian history and hopefully some of us can buy their books, attend their lectures and tell our friends (iranian and non-iranian) about them. The reason why I made this thread was that I bumped into a...

    Ali Karimi, another low life, piece of ...Mayeli verison II

    I guess that's where we disagree. I can't envisage anyone doing anywhere near what he has done for Iran. The change I've seen is something I couldn't have imagined ten years ago. He just has the perfect combination of discipline, psychological gamesmanship with opponents, fans and the players...

    Ali Karimi, another low life, piece of ...Mayeli verison II

    Aghayoon, I can't quite follow some of the arguments being made in this thread, but I just want to make the point that we need to be objective here and just reflect the question: Who has done what for TM? Queiroz has changed the way we play football. He has transformed us from a deimi, "chiken...

    Carlos Queiroz the mastermind Chess player

    I agree 100% with you, and I wouldn't call us "King of Asia", but at least the one of the most improved, and definitely a team who people who know about football from around the world (especially europe and south america) have only just started to respect for the first time since the 1970s. My...

    Carlos Queiroz the mastermind Chess player

    I guess as a Real Madrid fan, you may prioritise silverware over changing the way a team approaches the game, playing with a level of discipline which seems miraculous compared to before, and changing the course of a team from going backwards to somehow keeping up with European sides. A country...

    Carlos Queiroz the mastermind Chess player

    I still find it surreal that TM plays with such discipline. When other nations' fans in Russia were getting all excited about how TM play like a club side, it was one of those "out of body" moments. We've gone from individual players dribbling around aimlessly to this absolute phalanx of a side...

    International Friendly: Uzbekistan vs Team-Melli

    Abedzadeh is very interesting and I respect the guy a lot. Always destined to be under the shadow of his father, before he moved to Maritimo he just didn't look to be anywhere near the level of other iranian goalkeepers. There can't be many international goalkeepers who have played for teams...

    Carlos Queiroz the mastermind Chess player

    Does anyone know why Iran under MK could never beat Turkmenistan? We played them 3 times in 1996 - 2 losses (in Tehran and Ashgabat) and 1 draw http://www.teammelli.com/matchdata/details/matchdetails.php?id=2152 http://www.teammelli.com/matchdata/details/matchdetails.php?id=2139...

    Carlos Queiroz the mastermind Chess player

    Is MK's "Mr X" that he is talking about Khanzadeh? I thought he was a standby for 2014 but wasn't in the final 23?

    It was do-or-die for the Koreans, For 5 of their players including their 70 million euro rated Spurs forward, it was the difference between a potentially career-ending break of 2 years or not.
