Referee-Ranking for UEFA referees, 2011 (state: 25/11/2011)

the probable no.1 in 2011: Björn Kuipers (NED)
I have made a ranking for all the Elite and Elite Development referees in UEFA zone. The list is made up of an ingenious system which takes both into consideration - appointments and perfomances, although the perfomances count a bit more (something around 1/3 - 2/3). Of course, a CL semifinal counts more than BATE-Plzen, I know that every referee prepares for every match and that every match can be hard. However, the list should indicate what UEFA thinks of their referees and for this reason, better matches in a processed stage of a competition are rated higher. Only matches of UEFA club competitions and UEFA national team competitions are regarded! The whole year 2011 is the basis (= 2nd half of season 2010/2011, 1st half of the current season). It is not only me who evaluated the perfomances, it is you who have created the basis of this ranking as I have taken the average of all the marks given to the respective perfomance (at least mostly it is the average :))..

You may comment the results.
Viktor Kassai is - at the moment - the no.1. But if Kassai is not appointed on CL MD6 and Kuipers manages to show a perfomance better than 3,0 (:D), then Kuipers will be the no.1 of 2011 without any doubt.
This list is of course only tentative, there can be some changes on the last matchdays, I am going to publish the complete 2011 list as some kind of Christmas gift.
I have to publish it now because I do not know when exactly Mr Collina is going to publish his Euro 2012 list. Therefore, I want to indicate a probable Euro 2012 list with your, my, our ranking. Here it is:

  1. The Elite Development reflects the reality. As for the Elite there are some surprises IMO. Webb is 14 but from performances he must be lower than Benquerenca or even Moen.

  2. Yes of course, but as I said, also the amount of matches plays a certain role, too. There is only one reason why Webb is better than Benquerenca in this ranking:
    Webb had a EL round of 32 match, Benquerenca not. Webb had two Euro 2012 qualifiers + a playoff, Benquerenca only two Euro 2012 qualifiers without playoff.
    Clattenburg is of course better than this ranking shows but he did not get so many matches by UEFA in this season, I think that will change in 2012. But please explain to me how one can seriously take Undiano and Lannoy to a Euro?! That is impossible. Undiano had so far six matches by UEFA in 2011. Marks: 5,8; 6,5; 6,8; 7,0; 7,3; 7,5 = no joke, that is the average of marks given to him and they reflect my opinion as well...Velasco has more matches, better marks, he must be the no1 for Spain.

  6. Pls do me/us a favour and call your name or give a pseudonym..
    how the hell should I know how many "anonymouses" exist here, whether you are a different "anonymous" then others etc etc. If you do not accept that, I have to delete it. It is not because I want to know who speaks there but to be able to differentiate between different speakers..

  8. En este caso es una forma de aseverar la afirmación, en teoría es demonios, y pues vulgarmente en español como putas, pero si no entendiste le mensaje, lo único que quiere decir Niclas es que den un nombre -verdadero o falso- para poder diferenciar a las diferentes personas que comentan.

  9. I assume, by having deleted my offer to observe the referees' performances at the encounters with Spanish involvement on UCL MD6, it may be disregarded.

  10. Iker:
    No es que los partidos estén reservados, el problema era que sin un nombre, no podíamos asignarte a ningún encuentro, pero ya teniendo tu nombre, podemos cuadrar un día antes de que salgan las designaciones que partidos te gustaría reportar.
    Saludos

  11. Gracias Iker. Finally, I know with whom I am talking.
    Of course, I recognized that you want and can obsevre matches. I will consider you for that, no problem. I had however too many problems with anonymous-users so that I decided to delete every comment whose writer does not give any pseudonym even after I asked him.
    I did not delete your comments due to their contents, but due to the aspect Carlos also described.
    Say which matches you exactly want (I noticed the matches, but pls choose 2 you absolutely want to have) and then we can appoint you for the respective match.

    (BTW: It would have been enough to introduce a comment with "Iker: ....")

  12. If you want to, you can also have some of the EL matches next week.
    Celtic-Atlético perhaps, or Bilbao-Bratislava.

  13. Like many things in life, this ranking is only a subjective perception or estimation. Referees with a member of the UEFA Referee Committee are at all preferred.

  14. It should show two aspects:
    On the one hand, their perfomances play an important role, so we want to know which referees where in the year 2011 the best. (and not which referee were the worst!!)
    On the other hand, one cannot ignore UEFA's policy concerning how often they appointed them and how important the matches were.

    Marks are always a subjective perception (that is the reason why I took the average of many marks for the respective match, the sapience of the crowd, if you want to; but this sentence is a subjective perception as well...
    "Referees with a member of the UEFA Referee Committee are at all preferred. "
