  1. Niklas I will watch Rubin Kazan - olympiakos. But there is a problem with the time. My last info is that the game will begin at 12:00 local time.

  2. Hello Edward,

    the match will take place at 12:00 CET, that is 3 pm in Moscow.
    They will play in Luzhniki Stadium with a temperature around 12 degrees below 0.
    I don't know what they are going to do with Zenit - Benfica, maybe the same.
    In St. Petersburg on wednesday evening there should be 15 degrees below the 0, too.

  3. Robert Schörgenhofer is appointed for a second leg match in Europa League on 23 Febraury.

  4. Felix Brych with Mike Pickel is at Trabzon-PSV... A very good appoitment for both parties. His CL match will be in 2nd legs

  5. Plzen - Schalke: Lannoy. Niclas, you should be happy!

    ReplyDelete
  6. You can imagine how happy I am -.-

  7. I am a bit in confusion. Brych with Lupp. That means Lupp is the reserve AR for EURO. Schiffner is injured, ok, but I should have been Borsch then.

  8. HÄÄ??
    Martinez Ibanez will run the line of Undiano.
    How is this possible? He has passed the age limit?!

    1. I think that he continues in Spain until the summer (the end of the domestic season) and was appointed as non-FIFA AR in this UEL match.

    1. Again Cakir, and again City, will be funny... :)
      Toughest match of Rd.32 goes to him. Last year, he was really good at Kyiv-City where he hasnt let any advantage to hometeam.
      Emre Eyisoy is predictable. However, I wished that one of his line-up man would be Firat Aydinus. We'll exactly see it in his CL appoitment.

  11. Cariolato's come back to UEFA competitions. You have a mail.

  12. It's Fermin on ENAF CTA site as well. Strange. o.O

    ReplyDelete
  13. About Mallenco and his assistant Martinez Ibanez, I think it is not a mistake. FDB had his 45 birthday on 1.7.2012., but he was still elite refere, he got three matches in CL even he was older than 45. In his last match Arsenal-Borussia, FDB was 45 years and 4 months old. Maybe UEFA allows to be older than 45, but not 46, maybe UEFA is not so strict as FIFA about age retirement.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I believe te rule is that you can go on untill the end of the year in wich you turn 45.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I also thought that, but then I checked, Ibanez is born just 3 days after De Bleeckere, 4.7.1966. :)

    2. He is allowed to continue in Spain until the end of the current domestic season. He may also be appointed in UEL as a non-FIFA AR.

      Delete
  15. Yes that is right. As soon as you are not on the FIFA list anymore, you actually do not get international matches. Strange.

    Kralovec will be observed by Dallas. No need to say more.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can surely get international appointments as a non-FIFA AR, except for final tournaments. This is not new!!!

      Delete
    2. Yes, Fermín is not wearing anymore the FIFA badge but I think he can be appointed at european competitions until 1/4 final matches or something like that. But as ref29 says...it's not new.

  16. penalty and red to the Olympiacos goalkeeper.

    ReplyDelete
  17. uuuuuh both harsh. Penalty still ok, but I have doubts on the dismissal.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Niclas, why " DOUBTS "?Everything is clear and easy-tripping,promising chances and both sentences are correct-penalty and red card!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Why doubts? 1: the replays I were able to watch did not show whether there was a contact.
    2: to my mind, this is no clear red card. he was not the last man, there were two defenders. It was furthermore no deliberate contact, if latter really existed. So I have doubts.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I will not even touch on that discusion-on is so obvious that there is no shred of suspect.Where it says in Law 12 "LAST MAN"?Clearly written promising opportunity to achieve goal.Da you're sure to get those two defenders to prevent the ball enters the goal?!A statement that there was no contact at least as malicious!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Now watched the situation on rutube. I agree with Niclas.
    First of all, it's hard to see the contact, and I have to be honest, I don't see a clear contact. Probably it was not foul, but the Rubin player was able to pretend.
    Furthermore, according to the last interpretations we are seeing, that should be a yello card and not a red one. Yes, foul by keeper, but some defenders were still able to take part to action, after that.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Chefren,Niclas-I also watched and I think you're wrong!Place a situation where more people can see?Trips, chances-penalty and sent off!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. To explain it better: Mazic has not faults for the penalty, he was not in the best position to evaluate it. Maybe a help from additional assistant referee would be useful.
    Anyway, in my opinion, since there was the whistle, he should have given the yellow card, because there were other players and the position of the ball was not so favorable to score immediatly a goal.
    I can be wrong, but this is what I think.
    A clear red and penalty situation is when the player is alone with the keeper and after the foul he is no longer able to score easily.
    FIFA and UEFA are studying a lot about this rule. I think Mazic gave a obsolete interpretation, however not a mistake at all.
    We can say that he was harsh, very harsh.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Harsh but consistent-IMO penalty-RED CARD.Serbian referee is right...

    ReplyDelete
  25. I saw the whole match. I will send my report to Niklas tomorrow. But 2 observations.

    1. Penalty and Red Card both correct. If the player wasn't brought down he would have scored.
    2. Mr Mazic was a bit tolerate towards yellow cards especially for protesting. Had some problems with his cards and the players he should have booked.

    But he was much better than the last match I saw him (PAOK - TOTTENHAM).

    BTW: Niklas I am available for Udinese - PAOK.

  26. Hi, guys! I'm glad to see that there are different opinions about one situation.I watch entire game and I think it is a solid Mazic performance.I think Niclas respects my opinion, as I do his, so I will set out right here, not the WR...I think there is an offense, namely, tripping and technically-justified awarding a penalty kick!The disciplinary measure is (non)controversial and is one of the tough decisions as a referee.I agree with my colleague from Italy - Law 12 in this situation really needs to modify .Also, I agree with " anonymous " that Law 12 does not exist the term " last player "!If a player makes an offense punishable by a direct blow against an opponent who was in a good position to score - they must be excluded from the game.I agree that the two defenders closing path of the ball ... But , also that the attacker in with a chance to score!I think that the refereeing point of view (long I was a referee) a yellow card enough(IMO).But, Mazic strictly observe the Law 12.Player was at 7-8 m from the goal and are ready to send in a shot but is not sufficiently protected goal.But this is not the situation when a player moves away from goal ...I think he Mr. Pedersen will not throw up.Frankly shades are concerned, I think the better team won-deserved in inhumane conditions!!!Niclas and TEAM great support from me. Go ahead, guys!
    Dr Bane , WR

    ReplyDelete
  27. To make that clear: doubts are not meant in a negative way, I am not sure about it, that is all.
    If there is a touch, Mazic can show red, I agree. He can say: the striker would have probably scored a goal, according to the Laws of the Game, I was right.
    However, I am always a bit reserved when such situations occur. A striker makes a small curve around the goalie, he is probably touched, the referee says penalty, sometimes red card. But it is not that easy. A goalkeeper has to make a move down in the pitch, the question is: did the player want that contact? Did he even fall before the goalkeeper touched him? Had the goalkeeper no chance to avoid the contact? These questions are asked too rarely in my opinion.

    In general: hopefully, IFAB will make it clearer.

    1. Niclas, you are totally right with the "football" aspect.As a player I could not accept referee decisions, and frankly I was very rude.When I started to refereeing looked at it a bit differently and as a referee I was also tough ... :)I watched the game again and I think Mazic generally done a good job.Viewed in terms of Laws football games - both technical and disciplinary action is justly!Fully understand the sometimes-players seeking contact and very good acting.But the offense was-it was obvious.Profession does not recognize the "intensity" foul.Foul there or not!This is the best way of demonstrating Mr. Collina as a referee.That in my country all you like on BLOG I would be on the team with Mr. Mazic!
      An information-he recently defended his doctoral dissertation in economics.
      Thus he is Dr Mazic!;)
      Dr B.

      Delete
    2. Well, penalty is good decision. There was a contact, but the red card is too harsh for me. Yes, Mazic could have shown the red card, but yellow would be better I think. It was not a 100% situation, but OK.
      Well, what do you think about the yellow card for Natcho? It was clear dive by Mirallas, who should have been booked (second time) and dismissed. Overall, too strict performance to my mind. Regards

      Delete
  28. concerning Martinez: of course you can get matches in UEL as non fifa ar. However, I remember that, when Kadach retired internationally, DFB made clear that he will only be nominated in Bundesliga.
    Then I would like to see Peter Hermans again.

    1. Except for the final tournaments, the ARs are appointed by the national federations, so it depends entirely on their own policy.

  29. I watched Braga - Besiktas. Blom was... very meticulous and consistent. Both yellow cards for Helder Barbosa were correct (stupid foul and more stupid dive). Blom was really strict in this match, but it's better than inconsistent leniency in SCO-CZE. I am impressed and surprised by his very good performance. Regards

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh please... he was not consistent. Ok with the 2xYC but he lost the game from that moment until the end. calls were mostly ok but card policy was inconsistent. A good performance is when you have a clear line since 0 to min 90 and Blom didn't have that today. Just an example... Blom forgave the second yellow card to Besiktas no.5 two times, why? ... I am sorry but he wasn't consistent or meticulous (regarding card policy).

      Delete
    2. Hmm, we have different points of view. To my mind, there were some visible moments of weaker control, but he has this match under control overall I think. I don't agree about cards for Toraman. Yes, there were two situations, when it was on the borderline, but I don't think so it was necessary to show cards. To my mind he was consistent in card policy, sorry :) It was hard match due to hot temperament of both teams. Kevin Blom was very good I think.

      Delete
    3. I did not see Blom, therefore no comment.
      However, when I opened the weltfussball.de site to look for the result and the statistics, I did not expect less than 6 yellows, the red was no surprise either.
      Of course I did not see it, but to my mind this sort of match was in general not good for Blom's style, that does not however mean that he was bad or good.

      Delete
    4. I also watched Blom. let me say that he somehow affects the result of each game. For this time, both of YCs were undoubtfully correct for my side. However, he had an excessive use of YCs. Whenever, you take a look at the game, there is no tension, two very respectful teams, but 7 YCs overall puff?... I also detected that players have understood that referee use his cards quite easily and then, they didnt even touch each other (phyiscal contacts have decreased)...Foul detection was ok. Overall, was he good? Yes, I think, he was.

  34. About Kralovec

    Solid performance
    The Elite Development referee Pavel Kralovec from Czech Republic is in a steady rise. Even in this game, he has shown his skill. It was a solid performance, without considerable mistakes. Assistants had a good game, too.


    The importance of reproaching
    Kralovec was really careful on the pitch: every time that he whistled a foul, he showed great attention to players reaction. He was ready to reproach every possible complaint. In my opinion, he had a full control of the match, almost perfect.

    Calls
    Match had not so big calls to do. Some offside calls and situations to evaluate when Atletico Madrid scored, but not really difficult. All given cards were correct, players immediatly understood their faults. There was a minor complaint by Atletico for a possible penalty in second half, but it was a slight contact, absolutely no foul.

    Match
    Lazio scored accidentally the first goal (it was a mistake of Atletico keeper), then after they disappeared from the pitch and Atletico had a very easy win.


    CONTROL:
    He was able to prevent riots, great control. 9

    CALLS:
    Not really big calls to do, however he gave right cards and assistant were careful. Maybe just one mistake in second half. 7

    NEUTRALITY:
    No problems, he was neutral as every referee should be. 8

    STYLE:
    Good positioning and run. Immediatly careful and harsh when needed. 8


    Match difficulty: 7

  35. Thanks a lot, Kralovec seems to have been very good, Dallas saw him, I hope they finally promote him in summer.

  40. Niclas, the last two seminars in Nyon and Antalya referees is strictly warned that foul the goalkeeper in the penalty area - RED CARD in 99% of ...
    Only one case was an exception-when the ball away from goal and exceeds the transverse line.
    Mazic was nominated for next week ...;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I hope FIFA Task Force Football or/and IFAB will make good decisions.
    One cannot say every situation is red, one has to open his eyes and decide in every single situation.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Imparting to you what their instructions are provided in Nyon and Antalya. Paraphrase " offense goalkeepers in the area, punishable by penalties the RED CARD, UNLESS THE BALL COMES OUT THROUGH obvious transverse line, or if the player moves away from goal " !
    In particular it was stressed if the goalkeeper has committed an offense!!!
    Simple, seminar - instructions must be strictly followed . Otherwise followed by poor grades, or by the observer, or the commission.There are Laws in force, and referees must adhere to them.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes I see the point. Mazic is in this area right then, perhaps that is just my wish, a bit more leniency for goalkeepers.
      If the contact existed, what is not 100% clear in the replays I have, then Mazic was right at least according to what UEFA wants to see. No doubt.

      Delete
    2. Mr. Pedersen is satisfied!!!Commission has reviewed the footage and no-doubt Mazic was right in terms of technical and disciplinary assessment.A reliable source! ;) Dr. Mazic was nominated for this week.

    3. nice to hear that.
      His nomination for next week was made a week before the match we discussed ;)
