  4. Just learned that the Europa League fixture Anorthosis (CYP) - Dila Gori (GEO) has been abandoned by the referee Mihaly Fabian (HUN) due to an enormous entrance of Cypriot fans after the 3rd goal of the Georgian team. As a result the match has been given to Dila Gori with score 3-0 (which BTW qualifies for the Play Offs) and Anorthosis will probably face a huge punishment by UEFA.

  5. I'm watching Turpin in Inter-Hajduk, until now a surprising 0-2 but the referee was so so, some small mistakes and strange card management.
    Anyway, the big call (penalty) correct...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, I have seen him in Budućnost Podgorica - Śląsk Wrocław and my feelings was the same. Many room for improvement, especially, as you mentioned, card management and foul detection. He's not the best candidate to reach a higher category. Did you detect he doesn't use advantage/indirect free kick/play-on gestures?

      Delete
    2. Yes I have detected that he doesn't use advantage.
      A counterattack was beginning but he whistled the foul, stopping the game.
      Furthermore, in the penalty situation a card was needed, he didn't give it.

      Delete
    3. It's the other problem. I meant he doesn't use gestures even if he uses the advantage or indirect free kick or play-on gesture in some situation.

      Delete
    4. I see. I didn't notice that.
      What about Robert Malek? He gave more than 8 minutes of additional time in Rapid Wien - Vojvodina.
      Polish referees are very fussy with added time, I remember Borski in Steaua-Napoli 2 years ago, he gave 8 or 9 minutes, too.
      Just due to time wasting, not because of particular events happened...

      Delete
    5. I remember that Borski's observer was very glad with that. Don't know situation from Rapid - Vojvodina, so I can say nothing. Here, in Poland referees are different with added time. Overall, nothing special - 2, 3 minutes are a norm. You must see what is in Ukraine! :) There are about 10-12 minutes in every match after Collina's involvement in their federation. Even at their official site was the article about added time written by Collina. So, he recommend it very very much. It's different than German refs, who are ultra-minimalists if we say about added time (only in Germany, what is interesting - maybe Fandel and Collina have other opinion in this case). Brych in Bundesliga adds 0-1 minute when there are 4-5 substitutions, in UEFA competitions he adds 3 for that. Different schools, different opinions... I am a fan of very strict adding time.

      Delete
    6. I by the way think that time wasting is an extra ordinary event which justifies 1 or 2 minutes to be added on the additional time ;)
      In Bundesliga, the refs normally use their brain, if a team like Dortmund or Schalke are leading at home against a smaller cub with 3-0 or stuff, why to add even one minute? I think many players which are back by 3 goals pray for an early final whistle. And remember Zwayer in Dinamo-Ludogorets ;)

      Delete
    7. Of course, I can understand it, but rule is rule. Let's see at EURO final - 4:0. Even Casillas called for an end to the game and Proenca added 3 minutes (as far as I remember). UEFA and FIFA instructions are obvious - add the time, it doesn't matter how high is the score. So, I understand Bundesliga refs' approach, but I prefer official and recommended way of adding time.

      Delete
    8. Also in Italy people often say what Niclas has written and referees are accostumed to avoid additional time in those cases.
      Anyway, there are several things to underline.
      In a league or a championship, when you are losing a match 3 or 4 - 0 (or more) it could be important also to score just a goal. In fact, at the end of the season, with a certain number of goal scored, you can be, for this reason, in a better position than another team which has your same points in the standings.
      Furthermore, several referees are accostumed to give always additional time, in every match, with whatever score. So, for this reason, they can book or send off a player in those minutes, and of course it could be a crucial decision for the subsequent match.
      In order to assure consistency, they should act always in this way.
      To make a stupid example: one referee give 3 minutes with a team losing 4-0 and in this time he sends off a player, another referee dosn't give the additional time
      This is what we should prevent, in my humble opinion.
      I don't think that if you don't give additional time, you make a good action forthe losing team!
      Football is football, and what happens on the pitch, has to remain there.

      Delete
    9. Nothing more to add. I always underline these things too as a fan of adding time in every match (even friendly!) with whatever score. In this additional time can be expulsion, important booking or important goal at the end of the season. Therefore, international instructions are obviously the best and should be used even in Bundesliga, where the referees are extremely minimalistic in adding time. It's obvious taking into account i.e. Brych in Bundesliga and UEFA/FIFA matches. Two different policies in different competitions. It's wrong in my opinion national federation has other point of view than all international and most of national federations. We can see what is very recommended by Collina after his involvement in Italian, Ukrainian and European football.

    10. By the way, here the penalty given by Malek (he was blamed by all Vojvodina fans):
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xj4E4YpbIf8
      the hand on the head of the opponent seems a normal touch, Rapid Wien player was waiting for that, I absolutely don't agree with this soft call which has decided the qualification...

      Delete
    11. Hmmm, I think he could have given it. It wasn't a deliberate waiting for elbow, only typical contact. Most of the referees whistle it outside the penalty areas. We said about consistency in such situations. I found it as a brave and reasonable call.

      Delete
    12. Gautier with three straight red cards today...

      Delete
    13. I can understand your reading of the situation, anyway in my mind I don't blame so much the referee, but the player, which had an unacceptable behavior.
      If there is a foul, there is a foul, you mustn't emphasize everything. Do you understand what I mean? Watching the situation under this point of view, one can also think that it's easy to get a penalty, even more in a so crucial moment of the whole game!



      Gautier is a phenomenon with cards... now it's clear.
      I'm going to watch higlights.

      Delete
    14. Where do you see waiting for a contact or this unacceptable behaviour?

      Delete
    15. And Gautier... He loves his cards last time ;)

      Delete
    16. Sorry, I understanded 'I can't' at the beginning of your text :) Of course, behaviour of the player is poor... Typical Latin/Spanish/Portuguese :) I love English players who have a 'cojones' and play after such situations.

      Delete
    17. Just a hand on the head by opponent (I don't see clearly the elbow, here) and he falls down like a killed man.... I noticed a simulation, this doesn't mean that there wasn't a contact, but the contact was surely slight.
      If the player hadn't fallen, the referee would have thought a bit, before giving a penalty.
      Anywa it's my personal feeling...

      Delete
    18. Yes you got it right, of course here in Italy it's the same... many footballers are excellent actors.
      Regards!

      Delete
    19. Of course, you are right. Don't like such men and I know what you mean. But there is obvious contact - not elbow, only typical contact. So, the ref had a full right to whistle it. And such behaviour will never be solved. Players feeling a touch fall like killed and it's normal. Calls are only interpretations of a referee in those cases. I would accept bouth calls but seriously I would prefer a penalty here. As I mentioned, I am fan of Al-Ghamdi :) Regards

      Delete
    20. Everywhere in the World are actors and men. Only in some places there is too much actors :)

    21. First red card: a terrible kick on the head. Correct.

  11. Friedntly: Dinamo Bucuresti - Barcellona
    Pavel Cristian Balaj (about assistants, I'm not able to recognize them, anyway the first with FIFA badge, the second without).
    If you have exact info, post it.


    About italian supercup: very heavy work for Mazzoleni, Rizzoli, Tagliavento, Faverani and Stefani. A penalty, two red cards and so much stuff... if you are interested, look for the video on youtube... I personally think that it was too early for Mazzoleni, to referee a so important match, even with the help of Tagliavento and Rizzoli

    4. Thank you. I'm watching Chapron now in PSG - Lorient.

      These new kits in France are just shocking.

      Delete
  12. A possible penalty to Juventus not whistle in first half.
    A similar situation in second half, this time seen by Rizzoli and reported to Mazzoleni: penalty. Not so much consistent.
    Red card to Pandev: he said something to the second assistant.
    Red card to Zuniga: it was for a double yellow, but in both situations there was a foul against him before, not whistled.
    Other doubts when Behrami fell down in penalty area. No decisions from Tagliavento.
    In my opinion, with our new system, the mark could be 7,0.
    My idea is that with additional assistants there can be a big chaos.

      a suspension is just possible in competitions organized by uefa.

    5. I don't think, he will be suspended by the club, they seemed to be very amused about the situation, here is another video:
      http://mediencenter.sport1.de/de/video/fussball/#/0,0_qvlvy3ct
      Do you know, who decides about the ban? DFB, UEFA, FIFA or the Portuguese FA

      Delete
    6. In this situation only UEFA. DFB must send them a video material and raport from this match. However, FPF can give him a ban because he is a player registered in Portuguese FA.

      Delete
    7. I don't think that UEFA has any jurisdiction on this matter. Only FPF can ban him when they will receive the full report by the referee and of course the video by DFB. 2 years ago at a friendly match Georgios Karagounis was sent off in a friendly Inter - Panathinaikos and he was suspended for 1 Superleague match and not for UEFA matches.

      Delete
    14. Bans are problematic, I know, for this reason the only way of a real and more serious punishment will exist if Fischer decides to officially inform against Luisao to the police. It is no violent conduct anymore, at some point, it is violence that has nothing to do with the match, therefore bodily assault.
