Your and my Top10 Referees for 2010/2011

Ravshan Irmatov, your referee of the season 2010/2011 *
The recent poll defined our top10 list of referees for the last season 2010/2011 which includes competitions like UEFA CL, EL, CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores, AFC Asian Cup and CONCACAF Gold Cup as well. The U17 World Cup is not included in this season. As I had a few other names in my brain, I will present both, your and my list.
Carlos asked me to that as most of the readers and voters here are European so that it is nearly impossible that everyone has seen each match of Pezzotta or Roldan.

Community's list:

1 Ravshan Irmatov (UZB, 38 votes, 63%)
2 Viktor Kassai (HUN, 32 votes, 50%)
3 Nicola Rizzoli (ITA, 27 votes, 42%)
4 Felix Brych (GER, 25 votes, 39%)
5 Pedro Proenca (POR, 22 votes, 34%)
6 Sergio Pezzotta (ARG, 18 votes, 28%)
7 Carlos Velasco Carballo (ESP, 16 votes, 25%)
8 Cuneyt Cakir (TUR, 16 votes, 25%)
9 Damir Skomina (SVN, 15 votes, 23%)
10 Yuichi Nishimura (JPN, 13 votes, 20%)
Just outside the top10 with 12 votes each: Wolfgang Stark (GER), Wilmar Roldan (COL) and Roberto Silvera (URU).

* picture taken from Zimbio. Interesting to see that it is the same picture like the title photo of FIFA's Laws of the Game 2011/2012..the only difference is that there, Irmatov wears a yellow kit...


  1. Irmatov and Nishimura are excellent referees, but where did you see them in the 2010-2011 season (assuming that you were referring to the season 2010-2011 as the season after the World Cup 2010)? I really enjoyed and appreciated very much their performances at the World Cup 2010, but I did not see them very often in 2011...

  2. Well...Nishimura had 3 matches at Asian Cup including the opener.
    Irmatov had the final and both showed (what I have seen sometimes) good AFC CL perfomances.
