Our "predictions": FIFA prospective list of referees for Brazil 2014

These are our "predictions" for the FIFA prospective list for Brazil 2014.
We emphasize that this list contains all the referees of the real list. We have however added some names - on the one hand, because our source does not want that we present the whole list, but on the other hand in order to make you think as well ;)
We therefore offer you this list, draw your own conclusions, comment on the list, we are not going to say anything on it except giving our own opinion independent from our knowledge of the real list!

    Hi Suricate!

    How many referees does the "real" list comprise and does it consider more candidates from the same country?

    Kind regards from Vienna,
    Peter

    Again Webn. I hope Clattenburg.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yes, there might be two refs from the same country.
    The real list consists of about 75 refs..

    ReplyDelete
  6. by the way, all the referees we have seen in under17-tournaments, under 20-tournaments and tournaments like club world cup in December and Olympic Games next year are naturally apparent on the pre list, it would make no sense if they appointed them even though they are not considered for 2014..

    Hi Suricate!

    I do NOT find all the referees seen in previous FIFA youth tournaments this year on your extended pre list. What about José Buitrago, Paul Delgadillo, Jafeth Perea, ...?

    Kind regards from Vienna,
    Peter

    ReplyDelete
  8. Anonymous5/11/11 11:22

    If I'm not wrong, Delgadillo was a stand-by, nevertheless he refereed a match (Burkina Faso - Germany) in a horrible way

    ReplyDelete
  9. Absolutely.
    Buitrago, Delgadillo and Perea were all only 4th Officials or standby referees, however got one match each (due to the outstanding high number of ARs who failed the tests.) Bonilla received however three matches, even though he was only a standby ref as well.

  10. by the way, Irmatov is doing very well so far in his final..

    ReplyDelete
  11. Anonymous5/11/11 11:58

    We criticize AFC not because Irmatov isn't good!
    That should be clear. Irmatov is a talent, but AFC needs to appoint also other referees and not always the uzbek ;)

    ReplyDelete
  12. correct. Ok, Irmatov has not been appointed for a final in CL so far, but why again a Club World Cup? FIFA knows Irmatov, but they do not know other young talents. I remember that Williams was only a 4th last year, how should he show FIFA what he (perhaps) can?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Anonymous5/11/11 12:31

    Williams had a terrible Asian Cup, with many mistake in a only match (Kuwait - China). Maybe AFC was afraid and they now continue to prefer Irmatov. However I think Peter Green should be a good choice, too. He became famous for that fastest red card...

    ReplyDelete
  14. You are right.
    Irmatov with a heavy mistake, must send off Eninho for violent conduct, but only gave yellow

    ReplyDelete
  15. goooooool what a game !!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. ;) what a fascinating final, extra time now. Irmatov so far ok, does anyone watch it as well?
    If Al Sadd wins, that will be a bad joke, they do nothing..

    ReplyDelete
  18. Anonymous5/11/11 13:01

    Yes, Abdukhamidullo Rasulov and Bahadyr Kochkarovare are said to watch it as well.

    Bahadyr Kochkarov is a great AR

    ... and more experienced of life than Abdukhamidullo Rasulov who was born only last year:

  22. Respect...not only a superb official but also a human. One should admire him.

  23. Anonymous5/11/11 13:45

    During World Cup, Irmatov AR's had few problems with offsides only in the last match, the semifinal. Until there, they had been PERFECT (in the real meaning of the term)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Anonymous5/11/11 13:49

    Niclas, Al Sadd won. I also read of a given red card (double yellow). It was correct?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes, undoubtfully correct. An Al Sadd player made a tactical foul 3 metres away from Kochkarov, he pulled his opponent's shirt and arm and actually the whole body for at least three seconds, stupid foul..
    But there was a crucial decision by Irmatov, he made the final whistle after 119 minutes and 35 seconds. I do not know why..he stole Jeonbuk a corner kick hence.

    ReplyDelete
  26. by the way, yes, the ARs were superb except in URU-NED (that goal was probably offside), but I am still a bit angry that Irmatov issued a yellow card to our Müller, so that latter was suspended in the Spain match, it was obvious that Müller missed..a yellow card for an unwilling handball..you see, even small decisions can have a big impact.

    Come on, this is ridiculous: Picking "about" 75 referees out of 86 and giving the feedback that 96% of the proposals are correct.

    David Gantar can't be in the run by definition ...

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't know if you got an e-mail, so I write it here. A full appointment on the friendly match between Ukraine and Germany: Carlos Velasco Carballo with his compatriots Roberto Alonso Fernández, Juan Carlos Yuste Jiménez.

    France - Belgium
    César Muñiz Fernández - Fermín Martínez Ibáñez, Enrique Andrés Samper

    Costa Rica - Spain
    Mauricio Navarro - Joe Fletcher, Darren Clark - David Gantar (CAN)

  29. @ Anonymous:
    1st: This game, that was not my idea.
    2nd: I have already written that we MAY NOT present the whole list, we have to change something so that we will not lose our source.
    3rd: I doubt that you have read this small "instruction" on the right hand-side, either you write your name down instead of anonymous (a nickname is ok as well) or you do not comment here. Decide what you want.
    4th: If you find that ridiculous, that shows me that we should not have published the list.

    Thanks for the appointments, I did not get a mail by you.

    I hope UEFA will make a wise appointment for Estonia-Ireland. They could repeat the same mistake of Irlanda-Armenia in which was appointed a odd referee just because there was Armenia.
    Respect for Estonia now, please. And the referee for this match shouldn't be influenced by France-Ireland of two years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  42. respect..nearly 100 %, but there are however a few blanks.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Are those few "blanks" within UEFA? I took into account one of your comments below saying that all refs involved in the last FWC U-20 and FWC U-17 are on the list. If we put all those 12 names and add the "big names", there will be more than 24. For example, Tagliavento did not attend either of the FIFA tournaments, but it would hard to believe that Italy will only have one candidate (Rizzoli)... So, is it Tagliavento or Vad?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Referees who participated at any tournament organized by FIFA within the period before a FIFA World Cup are on the list. I do not know whether that is a fixed rule, but it was never different ..

    ReplyDelete
  45. In that case, could you confirm whether Italy, Spain, Portugal, Sweden and Netherlands have 1 or 2 names on the list?
