    No offense but the three you mentioned are nothing special compared to Korea, Australia, Japan's absentees.

    Ezatolahi - 4 games in the EFL Championship
    Gholizadeh - attacker who scored only 1 goal in the Belgian league
    Rezaei - attacker who scored only 4 goals in the Belgian league

    Korea missed...
    Kwon Chang-hoon - He scored 11 goals in Ligue 1 last season
    Nam Tae-hee - He started in all six post-WC friendlies
    Ki Sung-yueng (against Qatar)

    Australia missed...
    Mooy - He is one of the best players for 2018/19 EPL side Huddersfield Town
    Arzani - The wonderkid was bought by Manchester City

    Japan missed...
    Nakajima - Japan's most important attacker
    Shoji - He is a starting CB in the Ligue 1
    Kamada - He scored 15 goals in the Belgian league

    The difficulty

    Bahrain & Qatar (Korea), Saudi Arabia & Vietnam (Japan) and Uzbekistan & UAE (Australia) > Oman & China (Iran)

    No jet lag, similar climate, similar culture and many Iran fans.

    Football isn't the most popular sport in Australia, Japan and Korea yet Iran is less successful than them.

    In the modern era, many Koreans (Son Heung-min, Park Chu-young and Kwon Chang-hoon), Japanese (Hidetoshi Nakata, Naohiro Takahara, Shinji Kagawa and Shinji Okazaki) and Australians (Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka, Tim Cahill and John Aloisi) scored double-digit goals in a season in the major 5 leagues. Iran has only Hashemian. Please face the reality.

    Alireza Jahanbakhsh finished the season with 0 goals and 0 assists.

    Premier League - 19 games / 0 goals and 0 assists
    FA cup - 4 games / 0 goals and 0 assists
    League Cup - 1 game / 0 goals and 0 assists
    Unfortunately, my prediction has come true.

    In the past few years, we have seen Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iraqi (Ali Adnan), Filipino (Neil Etheridge), Chinese (Wu Lei) players doing well in the top leagues but Iranian players have been extremely quiet there.

    My 2018/19 award


    Player of the year : Son Heung-min - He scored 20 goals in all competitions and was selected in the 2018/19 Champions League team of the season by France Football.

    Honorable mention : Makoto Hasebe - He was selected in the 2018/19 Bundesliga team of the season by Kicker and selected in the 2018/19 Europa League team of the season by UEFA.

    Newcomer of the year : Takehiro Tomiyasu - He will become the first Asian CB to play for a big club.

    Honorable mention : Wu Lei - 3 goals & 2 assists in a half La Liga season.

    Worst transfer of the year : Alireza Jahanbakhsh - Brighton spent 19M euros for a player who finished the season with 0 goals and 0 assists. What a disaster.

    Honorable mention : Shoya Nakajima - He had a potential to play for a big club but moved to the desert for 35M euros.

    Worth Asian transfer this season for me is Wu Lei -> Espanyol

    He is phenomenal in the club. Leading the team to their European dreams after 14 years or something.

    What could turn to be real disaster (Marketing expansion in China) turn to be worthy transfer in La Liga.
