I wouldn't sell any of our players to these penny pinching Turks. Our players are worth far more than $400,000.
Never forget the days they would stan d by the side of the road with stone in one hand and with other mimicking a cigarette in their hand and saying to passing Iranian cars : Cigar ! cigar ! ...and if you didn't oblige they would throw the stones at you !

back in 1988, on the way out of iran, my truck driver emptied a huge box of cigarette boxes (at least 50 boxes of 10 pack of 20 cigarettes) from irans border to istanbul just to pay off road police.

Four decades of International opening for Iran.

Iran debuted in 1978 World Cup with zero foreign league players.
4 decades later, at this world cup, half of the team are legionnaires playing outside of Persia.
This is a brutal internationl opening by /for Queiroz.
1978
0 players / 1998
3 players / 2006
6 players / 2014
6 players / 2018
12 players.

Russian league is probably a 6th/7th league in Europe behind top 5. Is not that easy to play there.

These are all Mickey mouse leagues. Good players must be capable of breaking into the top 5 leagues, so basically half of 2006 > the whole 2018 ...

Akhmat Grozny? is that a food or a club?

I take the 2018 team over 2006 any time and every single player of this team over anyone of divded 2006 team with lots of ego.
This team is the real meaning of TEAM.
You should listen to PAG interview when young Hosseini was paired with him against Morocco after Cheshmi injury. He told Hosseini i will die for you on the field and i want you do the same for me and the team.
Reason why still none of these guys are in top 5 league is lack of enough connection and great agents. Otherwise qualitywise they are better than many of former playerd

TM TRANSFER:
Mohammad Naderi (21) Yooze Azarbaijan.

Leaves Teractor Sazi
and joins KV Kortrijk.

Naderi who was one of the most powerful defenders in the league, plays center back.
Naderi has signed until 2022 with KV Kortrijk who finished 7th, just outside of Euro League in Belgium.

Naderi who was one of the most powerful defenders in the league, plays left back and will fight with Milad Mohammadi for the Team Melli spot.
Naderi has signed until 2022 with KV Kortrijk who finished 7th, just outside of Euro League in Belgium.

Agha let this guy play a match in Belgium before making him a rival for Milad lol, plus we have Saeid Aghaei and Ehsan in this position. Never heard of this guy honestly and it came as surprise, hope he gets some playing time. Decent development league for young players.
