  1. Red in Hannover, Liany correctly sent off Haggui for dogso, furthermore penalty. But Liany has no control and we are only in the 13th minute. That can become a colourful evening.

    ReplyDelete
  2. I reject my previous statement and must have again a look on it, was not that clear red. Already two yellows now, Liany has no consistent line, he is lost on the pitch.

  3. Sorry to bore you, Liany missed a penalty to Hannover.

  4. Now he is awarding the penalty for handball, correct. What an intense match ..

    Both penalties ok, red doubtful, some exaggerated yellows, one missed yellow, no authority, lacks of control. That is the first half summary.

  7. I found an interesting statistic concerning Karasev's card amount in the last nine matches:
    50 yellows, 3x 2nd yellows, 3x straight reds

  9. Niclas, I have read that you have posted all the Referee Liaison Officers, therefore I want to ask if know the name of Napoli - AIK officer, two weeks ago.
    Thank you.

  10. Bülent Yildirim with two huge mistakes in Basel-Genk. There was a handball before 1:2 by Basel player, but then he called a penalty for Basel. He had a clear view, 1 metre away. Seems to be a obvious handball. Second goal was a foul comitted by Streller.
    Here you can see:

    3. Now watched the video. I can't believe that he missed the handball by Basel plaer and then he gave the penalty for a less clear one.
      The case of the second goal is a bit more difficult to understand, probably a referee could have whistled foul, as for example Hategan did in Tottenham-Lazio, annulling a goal for a reason like this.

      Delete
    4. 2 crucial mistakes. Handball before Basel 1st goal and a foul before the second one.

      Delete
    5. Both goals should have been disallowed, but the first goal Basel scored is definitely unbelievable.

      Delete
    6. Last match for Yildirim in this EL season I think. Last year he had only one group stage match as well. So he could be a possible candidate for demotion. With Cakir, Aydinus and even Göcek, there arre other good referees form Turkey.

      Delete
    7. I agree. I have anyway read that Yunus Yldrim is going to leave FIFA list on december, so probably Bulent will be kept, but probably with a demotion.

      Delete
    8. Actually, let me give another information: Bulent Yildirim hasnt handled any Turkish Super league match for the last 3 three weeks after wrong penalty call between Galatasaray and Besiktas. I dont know about the mark, but seemingly crucial mistakes...

      Delete
  11. Tudor faultless and solid performance in PSV-Napoli.
    Excellent work also by assistants.
    Many yellow cards but all were deserved.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree with you, only his positioning was suspect at times. Much too central and sometimes (nearly) interfered in PSV's build-up play. Deserved victory for PSV by the way against Napoli, who were dire. Cavani could have received red instead of yellow for kicking an opponent, but yellow card is OK as well.

      Delete
    2. Yes and furthermore he showed an impressive authority on the field, the first yellow card, absolutely correct, was just after 1 minute in first half.
      Players had to respect him. I don't know if Balaj, Hategan and all the other Romanian referees are really better than him, I found an excellent referee yesterday. In fact, more than 10 years of FIFA-badge mean something.
      Assistants faultless even in the borderline calls. 100% correct decisions

    I am a referee in the second highest division in Sweden at the age of 20-25, but I have been involved in football refereeing since I was 17 and even though I'm young and no ELITE-referee yet, I have a certain amount of knowledge and experience, and unfortunately I must say that Kruzliaks performance tonight was among the worst I have ever seen. It was a disgrace to see the FIFA badge on his shirt. I'll try to come back with a more specific comment when I have calmed down and have the time. Besides - one team from Ukraine, referees from Slovakia and a delegate from Poland?! Great job,

  14. Sorry for off-topic, but I must say that. I have just watched Manchester United - Galatasaray (CL 1MD) and Wolfgang Stark. Uff, I have a tornado in my head after this match. I must say Stark was OK. Missed obvious penalties was Dingert fault and only his fault.

    Maybe I list those situations giving my evaluation of them:
    01' - missed clear penalty to Galatasaray after Vidic' foul on Bulut; Dingert area of vicinity, big mistake by DINGERT not Stark
    24' - superb non-penalty call by Stark after undeliberate handball by Eboue
    33' - another superb non-penalty call by Stark after clear tackle by Nounkeu
    45' - missed free kick to Galatasaray after Carrick's foul on Altintop; Stark fault but it seemed to be a clear tackle at first, I understand him
    52' - don't understand the whole discussion about penalty to MU, obvious Yilmaz's foul on Rafael; great call by Dingert and Stark, then superb advantage used by Stark when Nani wrongly executed the penalty, correctly non-repeated
    70' - doubtful situation; Colak touches Nani in the leg, obvious contact, but was this a reason Nani fell? I doubt it. Acceptable call by Dingert and Stark
    88' - missed clear penalty by Dingert in only his area of vicinity; Eboue fouls Valencia, even yellow card possible, Dingert two metres away... NOT Stark's fault
    90+3' - doubtful situation; Evans a bit late touches Aydin Yilmaz and again, obvious contact but was this a reason Aydin Yilmaz fell? I doubt. Acceptable call by Welz and Stark

    In sum:
    - penalty given: CORRECT (52')
    - two obvious penalties missed: ONLY DINGERT'S FAULTS (01', 88')
    - two superbly non-given penalties by Stark (24', 33')
    - two doubtful situations where penalties could have been given but contacts were so minimal that Dingert, Welz and Stark could have let the play on; acceptable calls in my mind

    Finally, those all Turkish rumours about 6,3 are just funny or idiot after I watched this match. Stark without a crucial mistake, Dingert with two crucial mistakes, all referees with one doubtful and therefore acceptable call(s). Observer must defend a referee. Hence, Jon Skjervold must reported only two crucial mistakes, no more! In addition to this, great card management, full control (as always) and great fitness by Stark. Assistants were very good (Salver with one clear mistake in 30').

    Time to my marks (in UEFA scale):
    STARK - 8,2 (satisfactory - missed free kick and COULD have given two pens)
    SALVER - 8,2 (one clear mistake, the rest was very good)
    PICKEL - 8,6 (many difficult situations, all correctly solved)
    WELZ - 7,9 (he COULD have signaled there was a pen in 90+3, however - doubtful)
    DINGERT - 7,3 (correctly signaled penalty, two obvious penalties missed, he COULD have signaled even third penalty but doubtful situation)

    * It's not a defence of Stark only try to understand referees like a real observer must do. All marks are minimal to my mind and Jon Skjervold could have given them even more.

    1. It was also my idea, the unacceptable performance was offered especially by Dingert, but I want to ask: With the additional assistant referees, the main referee on the pitch has less responsibility about what happens in the areas?
      I want to mean: without the AARS, in this match, Stark probably could have missed at the same way, these situations... so, ok for the faults of Dingert, but also Stark was a bit absent with his mind on the pitch.

      Delete
    2. Of course the main referee is responsible as well. In the smaller categories where we don't have AAR's who takes the blame for a missed penalty. The Referee. So in this case Stark is equally responsible.

      Thank you very much, Yun! At last, a correct analysis that contains all difficult situations in relation to the circumstances. By the way, I hardly remember a game with such a variety of penalty-call-situations. Every scene very hard to see for every referee without assistants (and also with those assistants who cannot help)! Furthermore I think the referees have to handle with the instructions (I believe there are ones, seen in other matches, minimal contact = no penalty, some smaller incidents were even punished with yellow cards for diving) to let the game flow in the case of minimal contact in the penalty area.
      Looking at Kralovec's example, referee observer Medina Cantalejo and committee member Damkova justify the given penalty, where are Skjervold, Fandel & Co?
      Of course Stark takes responsibility, but we have to compare with other performances of referees in matches without such heavy work that did not damaged the career. I think, now it is easier for the committee to push Dr. Brych for the WC 2014 and the occasion to rule out Stark.

      Delete
    4. Yun, I agree with your comments about positions, but totally agree with Chefren. Stark was not fully concentrated on the game. Just want to know how would you rate Stark's performance without AAR? If I was evaluating Stark, I would possibly rate Stark with a mark something around 7.6. For me he is still the main guy on the pitch.

      Ugur B.

      Delete
    5. I just think if there wasn't AAR Stark would position better to see those situations. We have additional guys to have less area of main referee's vicinity. If the foul occure 2 meters away from AAR who would say it's main referee's fault to miss it?
      Some AARs are able to detect fouls and have a courage to intervene. Unfortunately, many AARs are as goal posts and don't want to see nothing.
      Situations in MU - GAL are very difficult and those two crucial mistakes are Dingert's faults not Stark in this case.

      Delete
    6. The crucial question is: why was Stark unable to see those situations? In minute 1 at least, it was his own bad positioning so that he had to rely on Dingert.

      Delete
    7. Don't think so. In that area we have AAR2 and AR2. Main referee should be in opposite. Who is at fault? Dingert staying closely or Stark who must be, regarding instructions, at least 15 meters away to this situation? Second situation is clear fault by Dingert, any other referee involved. We have such AARs so why referee should be in alert in areas of those guys? They should be helpful not as goal posts. See del Cerro Grande call when Velasco Carballo thought it was a clear tackle. It's AAR's area of vicinity.

      Delete
    8. Don't think so. We have that AAR who stays closely and Stark who should be at least 10 meters away from that situation regarding instruction. It's obvious we have AARs to referee have less area of vicinity and they should be helpful not as goal posts.

      Delete
    9. Right. But his area of vicinity was hidden because he was positioned behind another player - he should be more flexible to react to that.

      Delete

      It is unacceptable that a referee Pavel Kralovec ( his UEFA-mentor is Zdravko Jokic ) says details of the analysis with the UEFA observer Medina Cantalejo. Angel Maria Villar such behavior is strictly prohibited. When UEFA Committee analyzes the situation we will have the right information.

      Delete
  15. I watched also Milan - Anderlecht with William Collum and Montpellier - Arsenal with Carlos Velasco Carballo this night (night full of matches :))

    Collum with a good performance. He allowed a physical play and players were glad with that. However, there were two strange mistakes when Anderlecht captain broke the wall running from that before a free kick for 5 meters! Obvious yellow card and repeat of free kick... For Collum - play on! Unbelievable. Second thing was finishing a match in 90 + 3:00 when Anderlecht was running with dangerous counterattack and there was at least 30 sec pause in added time considering a yellow card. Again, unbelievable!
    Assistants were good. Conquer not challenged at all, Mulvanny with two wrong offsides in very difficult situations - still acceptable calls.
    COLLUM - 8,1
    CONQUER - 8,3
    MULVANNY - 8,2
    CRYANS - 8,0
    MADDEN - 8,0
    BEATON - 8,0

    Carlos Velasco Carballo with really very good performance. No problem with control, great fitness and relaed approach. He didn't hesitate to show a yellow card in first minute. Additional assistants were just great. Carlos del Cerro Grande superbly signaled a penalty to Montpellier (neither Carballo nor Yuste Jimenez didn't see it) after Vermaelen's foul on Belhanda in 8'. Carlos Clos Gómez with two superb non-penalty calls when signaled to let the play on after Bocaly dive (should have been a yellow here, 66') and after hard but clear tackle by Diaby on Cabella (a huge difference in strength and body between both players, 90+2'). Also great assistants, especially Alonso Fernandez with many excellent calls.
    VELASCO CARBALLO - 8,4
    ALONSO FERNANDEZ - 8,6
    YUSTE JIMENEZ - 8,4
    CLOS GOMEZ - 8,5
    DEL CERRO GRANDE - 8,5

  16. Now finished to watch Kassai, a normal performance.
    Report to follow soon.

    For now:
    1) his style is always the same
    2) Ring is a talent
    3) another mistake by Eros, anyway irrelevant
    4) penalty given was correct

  17. Has anyone watched Marciniak at Lazio? From the highlights it seems he gave a wrong penalty to Lazio and a red for DOGSO to Maribor.

  18. Two things.

    1st: Do you agree if we use the UEFA scale from now on? I think it definitely makes more sense.

    2nd: Who do you think should get a report? I will cover Liany and Kruzliak, perhaps also Marciniak. Liany with a performance by the way obviously below expected level, very poor performance. Penalty and then also red given by Szymon Marciniak are wrong decisions. Pawel Gil had free view.

    1. I can get Johannesson.
      I have talked with Carlos and he said it was correct penalty and red card. Hmmm...

    2. Have a look yourself (I think footyroom has it). There is a contact one cannot deny, but never enough for my taste.

  19. Fernando Teixeira Vitienes with a good and consistent line whistling not too much, but his performance had three errors, two of them with great influence.

    1st: The free-kick leading to the 1-1 was slightly pedantic, can be whistled, but not suitable to his previous line.
    2nd: He missed a red card due to DOGSO against Gönül.
    3rd: The free-kick prior to the 1-2 was definitely wrong, it was a dive.

  20. That's UEFA's scale. Should we take it?

    Marks Classification of the marks*
    9,0 – 10,0 Excellent performance.
    8,5 – 8,9 Very good. Important decision(s) correctly taken.
    8,3 – 8,4 Good, expected level.
    8,2 Satisfactory performance with small areas for improvement.
    8,0 – 8,1 Satisfactory performance with important areas for improvement.
    7,9 One clear important mistake, otherwise 8,3 or above.
    7,8 One clear important mistake, otherwise between 8,0 and 8,2.
    7,5 – 7,7 Below expectation, poor control, significant point(s) for improvement.
    7,0 – 7,4 Disappointing. Below expectation with one clear important mistake or a performance with two or more clear important mistakes.
    6,0 – 6,9 Unacceptable.

    5. Very happy with decisions, really the funny things is getting on the same line with UEFA in the end :D

  21. Here in Italy the red card for DOGSO is evaluated as correct by sport newspapers.
    They say that even though the contact is slight, Maribor players denies the goal scoring opportunity. I'm sorry, I haven't still watched by myself the situations.
    And about the new scale: ok. I will make my next reports using it.

    1. If it is a foul, it is a penalty and red, no doubt. But I doubt it was a foul. At least, it must be considered as a very soft penalty. Insert footyroom lazio maribor highlights in google. I guess Elleray will not evaluate it as crucial mistake.

      Delete
    2. I have watched the situation, I agree with the referee.
      Whistling this contact is in my opinion acceptable.
      Then, obvious red card and penalty.

      Delete
    3. Ok, then I accept the opinion of the majority.
      It would be nonetheless interesting to have a report for the full match, Carlos indicated that it was an ok performance with room for improvement.

  24. I have watched Jorge Sousa today in big clash of Liga ZON Sagres and I'm overally satisfied. Match was not very unfair but he showed off 13 yellow and 1 red card. He gave 2 penalties to Porto: first brilliantly detected after deliberate handball and doubtful second one after... contact :) Situations:
    24' - YC to Lucho Gonzalez (POR) for a deliberate handball, CORRECT
    26' - YC to James Rodriguez (POR) for a reckless tackle, WRONG - no foul at all but one can understand Sousa, it seemed like a foul
    34' - YC to Schaars (SPO) for a tactical foul, CORRECT
    40' - YC to Andre Carrillo (SPO) for a tactical foul, CORRECT
    40' - YC to Fernando (POR) for step on an opponent's leg, strange call - should have been a red card if it was deliberate (it was), no card if it was accidental, WRONG
    54' - YC to Izmailov (SPO) for a tactical foul, CORRECT
    56' - PK to Porto after Cedric Soares' deliberate hand, GREAT CALL - firstly, it seems as undeliberate act but replays show everything
    64' - missed FK to Porto and at least YC to Marcus Rojo for kick an opponent, A1 should have helped there
    65' - YC to Pranjić (SPO) for throw a ball on the ground, CORRECT
    67' - YC to Adrien Silva (SPO) for a tactical foul, CORRECT
    69' - YC to Marcus Rojo (SPO) for a tactical foul, CORRECT
    72' - YC/RC to Marcus Rojo (SPO) for a tactical foul, CORRECT
    79' - YC to Alex Sandro (POR) for a tactical foul, WRONG - shoulder attack
    82' - PK to Porto and YC to Boulahrouz (SPO) for a tactical(?) foul, WRONG - typical trying to use a contact between players
    88' - YC to van Wolfswinkel (SPO) for a reckless tackle - CORRECT - red card would be better

    MARK - 7,9 or 8,3
    taking into account the second penalty situation - for me 7,9, he was nicely positioned and should have seen that better
    Bertino Miranda - 8,2
    Rui Licinio - 8,5 great onside call leading to 1-0

    And referee shouldn't be from region of one of a team to my mind. It's really unneccessary, especially in such matches.

  25. What a match to Danny Desmond Makkelie (Twente - AZ)!!!
    Only see those situations (from 3:30 in video):

      My opinions:

      1. should have been penalty
      2. unacceptable red card for Maher ( yellow would have been enough)
      3. red card for Altidore probably deserved (but it's only a consequence of red card for Maher...)

    2. I think the impact of a violent conduct does not matter, but it definitely was a violent conduct, even more than a trial - and even the trial would need a red card, so I have no doubts about the correctness of this sending-off.

      Delete
  26. I don't see a missed penalty, both decisions correct. The striker only looks for the contact with the goalkeeper who has no chance to escape, again, we cannot punish goalkeepers for their risk and we cannot reward strikers for such actions..
    Sippel made the same at Schalke-Wolfsburg, when Farfán fell, there was a contact with Benaglio, but a good decision to my mind.

    Carlos Delgado Ferreiro with two (at least one clear) penalty missed, apart from that, good performance = 7.9 or 7.4.

  27. Paolo Valeri with several problems in Milan-Inter... he whistled (IMHO) a phantom foul in favor of Inter keeper, and Montolivo goal was not allowed.
