  1. The rest will follow tomorrow. If you have hot queries for certain matches (2nd legs EL playoffs), ask, then I can let you know.

    ReplyDelete
  2. As Pole I really don't know what UEFA sees in Małek... He's good referee in style, but he makes too many mistakes, often crucial mistakes.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Another significant appointment of the 2nd legs:
    Brugge-Debreceni
    Aytekin, Salver, Scheppe, Sippel
    Observer: FIFA committee member Trentalange (ITA)

    Furthermore, they wanted Strömbergsson for Levante-Motherwell with Mikkelsen as observer. Whoever will replace Strömbergsson, he will be under Mikkelsen's eyes..

    ReplyDelete
  4. Göcek will be observed by Karlsson. Aydinus has Jozef Marko.

  9. Thank you!
    For both Udinese matches, unknown observers, so this means that Elite and known referees are going to handle those match. Probably Lannoy?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Niclas, ok, I can observe Eriksson on tuesday.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Anonymous19/8/12 21:00

    Where did you find full appointments? Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Lopez Fernandez and Vassaras to very interesting names. So probably both matches will be given to ED referees. And probably Maribor (2nd Leg).

    ReplyDelete
  13. A source, and yes, I also think that Vassaras will observe an ED referee. The fact Benquerenca will be observed by Mikkelsen makes sense as well.

    ReplyDelete
  14. What is going on in France? 11 reds in 20 matches o.O

    ReplyDelete
  15. Just found something I could not believe. KSA-THA in World Cup qualifiers, referee Lee Kwok Man (Hongkong). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOVZADVzraw&feature=player_detailpage#t=13s

    1. I really can't believe he didn't show a red card to number 7.
      What happened later, was a normal consequence.
      Poor refereeing, and he was not that far from action.
      The nice scene is when all the four officials are talking near the benches for a long tim, it seems a meeting during the match :)
      They took it with big calm...

      Delete
    2. If I remember right, there were also exclamations from the Thailand side that he was biased. Dark red card and penalty at 0:16..

      Delete
    3. Free-kick of course.

      Delete
    4. OMG! I can't explain it in the other way than he was biased. Normal man wouldn't have missed so obvious red card... And yes, the rest was consequence. It's a pity because AFC have many excellent referees and such performances show other way around. But one think is obvious too. AFC refs have the best style in the World (see his positioning and calm in those tense moments) ;)

      Delete
    5. Anyway, everything happened in the last minutes, after the 90', when the score was already 3-0, it was totally irrelevant for the outcome of the match

      Delete
  16. Turpin with Levante Motherwell.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Aleksader Jegorov FURTH-REFEREE i Maksim Łajuszkin niedawno arbitrem FIFA był o nazwisku Jegorov Igor ale już ot tego ruku tego arbitra jako międzynarodowgo niema czyżby ALEKS to syn IGORA. Dwa mecze Anglików Johna Moss(FURTH-REFEREE)i Simona Bennett(ASSISTANT-REFEREE)w odstępie 7 dni no to chłopaki pracują.Ps.Yun Hyeon ty jesteś mój rodak sorki niewiedziałem że jesteś Polakiem twoja ksywa uświadamiała mnie że jesteś z korei a nie z Polski

    ReplyDelete
  18. William Collum with a very strong performance.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sędziowie z Hongkongu zazwyczaj przy ustalaniu list na FINAŁY MŚ nie są brani pod uwage, gdyz w Aji silne pozycje mają sędziowie z Japoni,KoreiPołudniowej,Australi,ArabiSaudyjskiej,Zea a nawet teraz z Uzbekistanu

    ReplyDelete
  20. Not impressed by Bas Nijhuis. I wasn't able to find a clear line in his refereeing.
    Acceptable performance, nothing more. Report to follow tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Marriner was good overall. Typical English style. Tried not to whistle a lot but he ended up with many yellows and 1 red card. He should however book Katsikas (PAOK) who after his goal at 83' took off his shirt to celebrate.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have to correct my self. Katsikas was finally booked by Marriner as it appears on UEFA site. It didn't appear on TV.

    Blom (NED) had an easy match in AIK Stockholm-CSKA Moskva, but did it very well. Excellent foul detection and use of the advantage rule in general. Only one YC - a correct, tactical one. Could have had one-two more, but overall very few mistakes and a good performance for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Tagliavento ok, crucial mistake by his AR2 (wrong disallowed a goal due to offside).

    ReplyDelete
  24. There was a big problem with the report of Vaslui-Inter, I'm sorry to say that it will not be available in a short time.
    Maybe in the next days
    Here his final mark, for now:
    7,6

    ReplyDelete
  25. Paok - Rapid Vien

    Marks

    Marriner: 8.2
    Long: 8.2
    Bennett: 8.5

    Report to follow soon.
