2011/12 UEFA Refereeing Performance Record



In compliance to the observers having put forward their assessments on the respective performances shown in the recent 2011/12 season, Portuguese Pedro Proença has ascended the throne of the UEFA Elite Group refereeing - at least in the European federation's club competitions.

Based on a certain system, which is targeted at displaying the amount of performances and their degree of quality, Pedro Proença has basically drawn a profit from last Saturday's UEFA Champions League final he was in charge of. According to the World of Football Refereeing observers, he has featured "a very good performance", whereas two Germans were able to occupy the first and third place on the list showing the average marks.
In the following, the results of the full list of awarded marks for the 25 officials, who were joining the ELITE Group at the start of the season, respectively became ELITE in December 2011, and who acted in the three major UEFA club competitions  (UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Super Cup) are be presented. As the number of matches is heavily drifting apart between those 25 officials - not merely due to performance reasons, but also and especially due to other circumstances like in Frank de Bleeckere's case a retirement due to the age limit -, the average marks of the shown performances is exposed here, too. 
Probably, this list is more expressive than the list demonstrating the total amount of marks.
The last list is solely considering the twelve officials who have been selected to officiate at 2012 UEFA EURO Poland/Ukraine. 
It has to be again laid enormous emphasis on the fact that the displayed marks are the respective averages of the marks given to the concerned referee in the concerned match by not only one, but mostly a lot of neutral observers.

  2. Yesterday I was watching Bayern Munchen - Holland. What kind of friendly was that? A match between a club and a national team, with Günter Perl in the middle. And Robben was playing for Holland against his team ;)
    Just three days after the Champions League final!

    Anyway there are many interesting appointments in the next days, for example Denmark Brazil on 26 May with Brych!

    Niclas, Germany - Israel on 31 May will be aired also here in Italy, so I think that I will watch Blom performance... in a few days I want also to ask if we are going to start with the predictions of EURO2012 matches referees.

    1. Referees of the friendly match between Japan and Azerbaijan playing on 23 May in Sizuoka:
      Referee: Abdul Malik Abdulbashir (Singapore)
      Assistant referees: Jeffry Goh Gek Peng, Yeu Mung Tang (both – Singapore)
      Fourth official: Minoru Tojo (Japan)

      Delete
    2. Yes, we can make these predictions in a week or so.
      The friendly yesterday was crap, many German national players missed the already ongoing team preparation of the A team due to that. 33.000 visitors, if they had made a similar match with Schalke or Dortmund, there would have been 60.000+.

    I have a question. Are there any grounds for referee in the rules of the game to finish the match before the official time elapses without any specific reason? It happenned yesterday in Slovenian cup final when Matej Jug blew the final whistle at approximately 29:30 of the second over-time. I know, it's "only" half a minute and the score was 2:2, so there were just few protests, but I'm wondering if he had any authority to shorten the match period without explaination?

      No, it's obvious mistake, BUT it's possibility TV watch might be delayed or Jug something with Jug's watch might be wrong. I don't believe Jug finished match 30 sec before the time-out with premeditation :)

      I was at the stadium and I'm sure that it was too early, according to all available clocks:)

    In addition - there were also, I think, two injuries in the second over-time, so there should have been added time at least 1 or 2 minutes.

    1. Good decision, same rules for everybody, players and referees. Should be actually a standard, shouldn't it?

      Delete
    2. I think that it's a good decision, too.
      Nevertheless, my obvious wish is that every FIFA referee doesn't need a test for this kind of things.
