Is it just me or the qualifiers were too long

I think part of the problem was .. these qualifiers felt really really long and still they are not finished with it ?


Why don't they just do it correctly and have two group of 9 teams West / East
Top two qualify directly - and end of story - simple you play 18 games and the qualifiers end -

Group A
Iran
Saudia
Uzbakistan
Bahrain
Qater
Oman
Iraq
UAE
India


Group B
Japan
Korea
Australia
Thailand
North Korea
China
Indonesia
Viet Nam
Tajakistan

Top two qualify ?
I found it silly that all teams had to play like 3 level of qualifiers or something?
I felt these qualifiers just kept going on , and going on and going on ....

You've got the top 4 qualifiers of this world cup in the same group. Extremely good for west asia but not for the east. West Asia needs MORE competition against good teams not LESS to be able to match it at the world cup. No point qualifying to get thrashed at the finals!

Its just politics by Japan/Korea and Australia to some extent to get the extra sports from west asian side seats as well.

Its quit a crime in my opinion
I am really in favour of 1 League ... system

Qualifiers League:
Iran
Saudia
Uzbakistan
Bahrain
Japan
Korea
North Korea
Japan
Australia
Oman
China
Qater

Let it be simple - home/Away games -
every one plays every one - and if you do good you go world cup if you don't do good you come back home ...

No more 3 small groups crap - just to facilitate nations that don't know how to play - and waste time -

Re: Is it just me or the qualifiers were too long

cheers, and also it's time to combine Oceania in full with Asia (and not just adding Aussies) for 5 full spots in WC

New Zealand doesnt deserve that 0.5 spot at all !!!

they should fight for it the harder way

[quote=bezashah;480699]cheers, and also it's time to combine Oceania in full with Asia (and not just adding Aussies) for 5 full spots in WC

Here is my opininon

Qualifiers League:

1 Australia (Qualify world cup)(Qualify Asian Cup)
2 Korea (Qualify world cup)(Qualify Asian Cup)
3 Japan (Qualify world cup)(Qualify Asian Cup)
4 North Korea (Qualify world cup)(Qualify Asian Cup)
5 Saudia (Qualify world cup)(Qualify Asian Cup)
6 Iran (Qualify Asian Cup)
7 Uzbakistan (Qualify Asian Cup)
8 Bahrain (Qualify Asian Cup)
9 North Korea (Have to play qualifiers for next asian cup)
10 Oman (Have to play qualifiers for next asian cup)
11 China (Have to play qualifiers for next asian cup)
12 Qater (Have to play qualifiers for next asian cup)

If AFC implements this all teams have something to play for even the last place teams will try to win birth to Asian cup instead -

Cuz in current system Defending champion Iraq in Asia is not even in the final stages ????
