    well that was quite unexpected . they sent this team only because they thought they have to pay more (than tickets) as penalty in case of late withdrawal . I only watched the last 2 games. semifinal wasn't that good. only Yakhchali carried the team on his shoulder in 2nd half but they had a very good defensive game in the final and Mirzaei had the game of his life , he scored almost 30 !!!

    interesting to win a tournament with only 7.5 players (numbers according to Kazemi who considered himself as 0.5 ! since he was a bit injured) one thing is for sure that Hatami is a better coach than Shahintab. who made a joke of Iran NT this summer. Hatami wasn't brilliant before him but at least he led the team (without Samad) to the Asian Cup final.

    Petro spent (and wasted) lots of money in past few years to be in this position. first they had hard time to win the Iranian league, they only managed to do that when Mahram became weak. then some editions of Champions Cup got cancelled and they had hard time to do anything in past 2 editions with better squads (and imports but with Shahintab as coach) but they won it this year when they didn't even want to participate ! life is weird sometimes

    lol at kazemi being 50 percent is that the reason he was absent and non factor in jakarta?...thats why i believe iran is a better team without haddadi around at least in asia level..
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    He got injured in Jakarta against Japan in quarterfinal. and missed the last 2 games. Hassanzadeh replaced him and did great against Korea and was playing good in the final before our genius coach benched him for a reason nobody knows. Kazemi is not fully recovered yet.

    yes that's somehow true. when Haddadi is there , other players just look at him and wait for him to do a miracle. I remember Iran was down by 12 in Qatar with less than 4-5 minutes to go and when Haddadi had to sit on bench because of his 4th foul Iran came back and even won the game. not Haddadi's fault though. other players have to learn even with Haddadi's presence they still can play their own game.
