Omm Al-Hamaam City!
Teams: Saudi NT and Hilal
I don't know why we Saudi fans care about our NT anymore.
We have arguably the best group of players ever, SAFF has plenty of funding, so why are we lagging so much behind not only Europe and S.America, but even when compared to S. Korea, Japan, and now Australia?
I say we deserve nothing more as long as we are passive and only bitch about things like shy girls allowing the immature teenagers/drunkards running SAFF keep destroying our football.
Worse is the press with its hidden agendas. I seriously believe that most of these journalists are paid by SAFF or others to stir problems. It makes no sense that they all seem to agree on firing the coach before the deed is done when: 1- They always disagree between themselves on most other issues. 2- They all usually write about the merits of being patient with coaches and wait for 2-3 years before getting results. Suddenly they all change their minds, and after the appointment of the new coach they ask for patience and the cycle keeps going.
But then who is this new coach? who was Calderon, Paqueta, Van Der Lim, etc.. They were nobodies, at best third rate coaches. I understand if SAFF appoint a top caliber coach (which they can easily find the funding for) like Parreira and then he fails (I don't think he failed). At least you can say, well they did their best. But hiring a coach with no track record and then after a few months you are surprised that the results are not there. Well whoever hired him and whoever approved the hiring should go first. Doesn't that make sense? HR is science. Companies pay top dollars to get a qualified HR manager. If it is simply picking the best resume or the cheapest alternative, well anyone can do that.
