    2. Wow. There are many things indicating that he could be the CL final referee. Rizzoli, Stark, Proenca. These are my favourites, even though Stark has not the best cards.

  7. I watched Lannoy live...He was poor, IMO. He was really inconsistent in foul detection, I think there is enough reason to call a penalty for Hannover around Min20. He has no authority over players, closed his eyes to complaints. He was always in the play, very poor positioning. However, his approach to game was based on contributing to flow. But, his calls remain shocking. Let me also mention that there were some good and wrong flags...

  8. I think Proenca was good. Maybe he could be a little more strict with some protests but his approach was ok.

    1. Proença good, I confirm. Good performance for him, with Collina as observer. That's important. I have finished now to watch the match. I'm going to write the report. Just some minor mistakes in a enjoyable game. I'm sorry for Niclas, but towards the end, Schalke has totally lost the concentration and also the chance to qualify.

      Delete
    2. I agree. We saw a decent - good Schalke for 60 minutes, but then - do not take this as total explanation - the defence organization struggled totally. We had to substitute our 4th (!) goalkeeper who is 36 years old and who has not made a match for years. Bilbao did more or less nothing until the 2-2 and then, I do not know what happened....

      I have seen the match live in Arena and also re-watched it (even though it was hard...), so I can perhaps tell you something about how the Proenca-team worked internally. It was a good communication, much eye contact (I supposed it). However, what I totally dislike is this gesture, you all know it, this gesture with both hands before each free kick and upcoming trouble. Perhaps I find an adequate picture for that. Moreover, he missed 3 ellbow/hand conducts. (one of Ander against Raúl, minute 29, should have been at least yellow, it was perhaps nearly in the area of a violent conduct, must be seen by Santos; the two other ones were in the same situation, first Muniaín hit Jones with his hand in the face and then Jones made kind of tit-for-tat.).
      Yellow cards not reasonable to my mind. The first one to Bilbao in minute 8 was exaggerated, he should have booked Huntelaar earlier. The good things were his movement, his AR1 Miranda who made no mistake at all and his foul detection was overall still ok, too. Should have booked Raúl for a dive (45', Gomes should have seen it).
      However, I still do not understand why he is so hectical and chaotical, he could be calmer, the match would benefit from that.

      Overall:
      Control (25%): 70 --> could have been calmer, but in general under control

      Calls (30%): some crudities in foul detection, missed some cards, gave one which was quite exaggerated, good offside calls by AR1 especially (disallowed goal..), but also AR2. --> 60

      Style (25%): hectical, chaotical, this one gesture which he applied again 20 times disturbs (me). Fitness, movement and communication with the rest of the team very good. --> 65

      Neutrality (10%): 80

      Difficulty/Importance (10%): 80

      ====
      67,8

      Have not seen any other match of course, wait for your comments on Atkinson and Stark (penalty correct?)

    3. I forgot one very positive thing: advantage rule and booking afterwards. Brilliantly applied.

      Delete
    4. That's it (of course in movement and top-down)

    5. I watched the highlights of Lisbon-Metalist. Stark awarded a penalty seemingly similar with the position that which Eriksson rejected to whistle. I believe, the decision made by Stark was much more correct.

      Delete
    6. I agree, have checked it by now, too. Aytekin probably told him and it was ok.

      Stark was nor brilliant but had a decent performance. Reasonable foul detection, good advantage, good assistants (Aytekin the weakest link in the german team). On the negative aspect card management was not that good. Penalty situation 100% correct, obvious contact.
      control 75, calls 75, neutrality 80, style 70, diff 60= 73

    8. Ok thanks. A typical Stark match according to your descriptions :)

    9. Niclas, reading your reports I have always the feeling that you are looking for a perfect referee, I think that you will never see a performance as you would like to see. There will be always a small mistake, a gesture that you will not like, and so on.
      This isn't a criticism, but let me say that I don't see a so chaotical Proença as you always describe him. Maybe this is just his style. I think that there many other nervous referees with fussy gesture. For example, if you have watched Eriksson in Milan-Barcellona, you have surely noticed that he was running like a crazy man, after every whistle, to reach the place where was happening the foul.
      We can take as example also other referees: Benquerença with his fussy gestures, Cakir also sometimes appears very turbulent.
      Then, what I want to say is that maybe we have to accept them all as they are.
      Furthermore, let me say that Proença has a always great smile on his face when possible, and I prefer him, instead to (for example) Stark, or Velasco Carballo.
      Anyway, as you wrote, he is excellent with advantages.
      And what about the mysterious call by Miranda? You said that he was perfect, then if you can, please explain the situation that is in the pic and in my report.... maybe he reported a foul and not the offside?




      About Stark penalty (I have download the whole second half just to watch that :D), I think that it's a clear situation of a foul and it's different from the Milan-Barcellona one. Stark whistled correctly.

    10. Style is a question of taste, nobody contradicted that. However, I think that a style is sometimes more important than single situations as it may lead to either an easy match or a more difficult one. We have to accept the styles, of course, we must be happy with the style diversity, better than in other parts of the world where the only unique style is throwing cards through the air. Do not worry, nobody is perfect and I am not looking for nobody..

      Which mysterious call?? It was offside, why did you frame the Schalke player? It was the Bilbao goalie who made the long pass and both Bilbao strikers are obviously offside. So you mixed it up, pls change the sentence "If it was for that, it was a big mistake".

      Having missed ellbows/slip in the face-conducts by a) Huntelaar (minute 4?, should have been an early yellow), by b) Ander (29'), by Jones and Muniaín in the same situation, you did not notice any of these situations in the report. But again, he was really brilliant with the advantage rule, I do not know another ref at this level who is so perfect in this field. And you are right with the smile.

      On the whole, I want to summarize the observers Proenca had in this season:
      McVicar (SCO), Messina (ITA), Vassaras (GRE), Sajn (SVN), Collina (ITA). CL final?

    11. I'm sorry for my big mistake in the report. I should change it. Carlos, if you are reading, I'm going to send a different one.
      Of course, without the final pic.

    12. No problem ;) I'll tell him, too.
      Marrufo and Perea in charge of semifinals, see new thread.

  9. I have by the way updated the xcel list containing all the marks (or more likely averages of them) you and I gave for ELITE referees and ELITE development referees' performances weighn by a certain system taking competition stage, appearance itself and the quality of the performance into consideration.
    It covers all the official UEFA matches (except U21 tournament) including UCL, UEL, USC and UEFA EURO qualifiers from January 2011 until now.
    Kassai is leading, Proenca is no2, Brych no3. More after the CL final.
