I think Gulf cup in 90s was very strong & interesting when they play it by round robin but now after dividing teams into two groups, it's not good and it become easier to win
So you find teams like UAE took the title and team like Oman reach the final reach three consecutive finals
For Saudi Arabia yes
Saudi Arabia qualified to final 2009 & Semi-final 2007
but the new system made it easy to eliminate a team like Saudi Arabia by knock-out
They failed to make anything in Gulf Cup 2009 (eliminated from 1st round) , World Cup 2010 Qualifiers & FIFA Confederation Cup 2009, they will do nothing in Gulf Cup 2010 & Asian Cup 2011
Because there is no system in Iraq, they won Asian Cup & 4th place in Athens 2004 because they were good players & coach not because there was a system can save those victories
it`s always the best chance for the host team to win the cup at home and in front of their fans. so it`s time for yemen to do their best for that although that their squad isn`t that strong in comparing to other gulf teams.
