Honestly PEP will be horrible choice for Iran haha ... Play open an then we lose to even Bahrain :)
Aziz jan, PEP too would find out soon that this IR bunch are no footballers. They HAVE to defend with all they have and still have to be lucky to not lose against any semi decent asian opponent. Playing an open style or not, they are more or less on the same level as Bahrain wouldnt win 6 out of 10 against them. Qatar is already way ahead of them.

Fun fact, Bahrain has a total of 1 player currently playing in Europe in some Czech team, and one more playing in Emirates. Every other player has reached their limit and plays in the mighty football country of Bahrain.

Sure you want to continue to make outlandish claims that Bahrain is on the same level as Iran?
 
It's really simple. Quieros was a good coach for Iran playing the way he did. And even then the results were nothing special. Nothing. Nobody will remember Iran in the WC for anything. If you guys think people talk about the Iran team that nearly drew with Argentina or drew with Portugal you are deluded.

Colombia is a way different team and expectations are very different. We don't know what exactly happened there but whatever it was, his way didn't work with them.

Cuadrado, James, and Falcao are not well suited to defensive strategies and they are fixed important starters for Colombia. Carlos was always going to have a problem adapting there game to fit his defensive style.

My Colombian friend told me that the players did not buy into CQ philosophy. He was not the right person for the job.
That is exactly the same thing which i have heard, but he never demolished his players on public after even losing the job. That is why many TM players still love him.

He did so many good things for our football that one can be really stupid or disconnected from our football(which is the case of some here)to not being able realizing it.
The most recent one is Taremi. Just compare the player when he first got the invitation to TM by CQ and now..

It took two years for the Iranian team to get to know him. Once that happened, it was a siege unit, so the team itself was so much greater than the some of its parts. Look at the win ratio difference between the first two years and next six....

Within the infinity amount of corruption and incompetency in Iran and Iranian sports, we have to give thanks to the few people who ensured that he remained after that difficult beginning period...
