  1. It's early to say something, but probably 2 of these 3 referees already appointed, will be the men with 2 matches.
    In fact, 6 referee for 8 matches means that 2 of them will officiate twice.

  2. I had the vague idea that Haimoudi could get the final, this would be a signal, but of course it's way too early.
    Predicting the course of the tournament I would say:

    Sanfrecce-Ulsan Hyundai 5th: O'Leary
    Monterrey-Chelsea SF1: Shukralla
    Ah Ahly-Corinthians SF2: Rodriguez
    Monterrey-Al Ahly 3rd: Cakir or Vera
    Chelsea-Corinthians FIN: Haimoudi

  3. Stark with 3 crucial mistakes in Dortmund-Wolfsburg. And we are only in minute 63.

    1. Zwayer?
      Two straight red and a penalty in Schalke match, correct?
      It seems that Ibisevic did everything: hattrick and also a yellow card.

      Delete
    2. And nearly an own goal as well ;)
      Red cards spot on (serious foul play). Penalty more than questionable. Outside the penalty area, every 2nd referee perhaps whistles it, inside the box, hmm..if we whistle that in the box, we'll have more than just one or two penalties per match. No crucial mistake however.

      Delete
    3. Stark's team by the way produced a 4th crucial mistake as well:

      - 1-0 was offside.
      - penalty and red for alleged handball on the line, Schmelzer did not touch the ball with his hands at all.
      - penalty should not have come into existence, it was offside. Pickel did not flag it.
      - penalty to Dortmund, wrong.

    4. If someone is interested in watching even more catastrophe by referee, should watch Sunderland - Chelsea. It's one of the worst if not the worst referee's performance I've ever seen...

      A pity Stark has such bad days like at the EURO, United - Galatasaray and now Dortmund - Wolfsburg. He's a top referee with one of the greatest personalities ever but such performances are black days in his career and will be remembered by me as well as phenomenal matches where he showed the best control from all referees in the World...

      Delete
    5. In my opinion, penalty given to Chelsea was correct. Sunderland defender was more than stupid, don't you agree?

      Delete
    6. Did you watch the full match? Penalty was correct, other one was missed but the most important is the number of red cards missed...

  5. I will later reply to this article.

    Have a look at Zwayer's three crucial decisions.
    To my mind a way too soft penalty, but two spot on red cards.

    1. Now watched. Too easy penalty. If you whistle that, you have to whistle also each soft touch in the midfield. Referees have to be consistent in their decision.
      Insted, both red cards are correct, but also here, we see always YC for these situations, so the hope is to have more decisions like these when the tackles are really reckless.

  6. Awful performance of Atkinson and Kirkup.

    1. I watched the match.
      I'm happy for United final win.
      Unacceptable that from the possible (and deserved) 0-3 the match was converted to a 2-2 due to referees mistakes.

      Delete
    2. I agree. Also this missed advantage and not given penalty made me doubt..

      Badara Diatta (SEN), Djamel Haimoudi (ALG), Slim Jedidi (TUN) are in the run for this year's CAF Referee Award (20th december).

      Delete
    3. And what about the missed red card of the last minute in front of Clattenburg?
      Can't believe that.
      If yu have an explanation...

      Delete
    4. Probably they did not want to heat the situations more than needed, but a red card was a must here. As I wrote in the predictions/demotions-post, actually Atkinson does not belong to ELITE..

      Delete
    5. My view is one: the match should've been abandoned after Rio Ferdinand situation... It's too much situations where referees are forced to finish matches and they don't do it...

      Delete
  7. Incredible mistake by Stark with that red card for handball on the goal line...
    OMG

    1. He was influenced by Wolfsburg players. And he put himself too side and was unable to see this situation well. I detected Stark is always wrongly positioned in penalty situations... However, it's the biggest thing to say sorry after that. I wrote a feuilleton about yesterday's situations and about post-match intervies with referees at sedziapilkarski.pl (use translate)

      Regards

    2. By the way, which is perhaps not visible in the highlight sessions, the handball situation should not have even come into existence, as Pickel did not see an offside position. The player who was offside was hidden by another Wolfsburg player, so Pickel actually could not make a profound decision.

      Delete
    3. Good text, I agree with it. Mutual trust does not really exist, but my opinion is pretty clear: it's the official's decision whether he wants to talk to the media about mistakes, if he wants, why not, if he does not want to, then it's the media's duty to respect that. (BTW: Stark allowed an interview with Liga Total, but not with Sky Germany..).

  8. Peter Edibe (NGA), Malik Salifu and David Laryea (both GHA) are on the shortlist for AFCON 2012. I don't know more names, of course all the pre list officials should be there.

    Shameless dive by Bonucci (Juventus) today in Palermo-Juventus.
    Referee Andrea De Marco.
    Of course, YC.
    The player apologized on twitter for that... too blatant to be kept under silence with fans ;)

  10. One of the poorest weekends in Premier League! Michael Jones, Mark Halsey, Martin Atkinson, Roger East with very very bad performances! In addition to this, Stark's incident and we have shockingly weak weekend...

    1. And on the other hand the best refereeing performance today was at the Greek Superleague derby Panathinaikos - Olympiakos from Stavros Mantalos (an inexperienced referee with only 2 years at Superleague but is expected soon to be FIFA).

      Delete
    2. Must be a huge talent!

      Delete
    3. He is. In 2 years in Greek Superleague he has 22 matches and 1 FO appointment at EL and 3 FO appointments at a UEFA U17 tournament.

  12. Cagatay, I have read your report.
    I agree with you, for what I was able to see (not the full match, anyway).
    The performance of first assistant was excellent, he was involved in two important situations in first half and he correctly raised the flag. Probably the most difficult situation was the one in the 38' minute, in which he had also to evaluate if the player with his behavior was active or not in the play. In my opinion, correct decision, too.
    About Haimoudi, it seems very strange the advantage given before the YC in second half, there wasn't any need to let the game flow, and the foul was rough. Correct decision, even though it came too late. But still 100% ok.
    And the last thing, also about this you are totally right in your report, Haimoudi has a weird habit to call the players when he had to book them, I can't see a behavior like this in a referee, he seems to be the star on the pitch. What happens if the player doesn't want to feel his instructions?
    Too theatrical and inappropriate, to my mind.
    By the way, a good performance of the whole team, and this is the most important thing, also concerning offside situations.
    Niclas has already received my opinion about that.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Concerning the aspect you've mentioned, calling the players to oneself as a referee is actually not what is wanted to be seen..at least UEFA instructs their officials to go to the players and not vice versa.

  14. By the way, Vera's performance was generally good, 8.3 or so. But there were two crucial decisions to take.
    I think both are very doubtful, the second one is to my mind, after repeated view of the replays, a penalty and dogso.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKnp2MgPdn0&feature=player_detailpage#t=306s

    And a potential foul preceding the 1-2:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKnp2MgPdn0&feature=player_detailpage#t=376s

    Still acceptable to not whistle it, but the intention of the striker, undermining the opponent, was clear..

    ReplyDelete
  15. The irregular action by defender seems clear: red card for DOGSO and penalty probably were the correct decisions to take.
    The other situation to my mind is still ok, I don't see any foul by the player who scored.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Marks will be 7.9 for Vera (actually 8.3), Lescano with an 8.7 (perhaps also a 9.0, he had approximately 10 tight NO offside/offside calls to make, everything correct), Romero 8.4.

    1. Anyone with any idea on Cakir?

      Delete
    2. Maicon observed him, marks are 8.3, 8.3 and 8.5. Cakir with 42 fouls by the way.
      Reports will be uploaded tomorrow!

  17. No suspension for Schmelzer. DFB has not started an investigation after his red card due to this alleged handball.

    1. Here in Italy came the news that Stark apologized in public for the mistake:

      http://www.corrieredellosport.it/calcio/calcio_estero/bundesliga/2012/12/09-286349/Arbitro%2C+scuse+al+Borussia.+%C2%ABNon+c%27era+rigore%C2%BB+VIDEO

      (you can tanslate the page using google)

    2. Yes he did and he was highly praised for that, e.g. by Lutz Wagner, Hellmut Krug or Markus Merk. But in the end, that's a phantom debate. What else should he do? Ignoring an interview must be respected, but that would have had a negative impact on the fans here. There is no other choice in this specific case than saying what everybody saw.
      And it's also undoubtful that Stark is the one who mentally suffers most from this mistake/these mistakes.

      Delete
    3. In the article, it's again underlined that Wolfsburg's players influenced Stark with their complaints. They knew that it wasn't penalty and red card, but they were able to put high pressure on Stark.
      Let me say, anyway, that a referee can't be influenced in this way. He must be always autonomous in his decisions: if he sees, he whistles. But if he is not able to see, he can't whistle just trusting the players.
      This is what we can reproach to Stark.

  18. DFB referee committee has decided that Stark will not get a match with Dortmund's involvement in this season. Dortmund think about an inofficial rejection of him even in the next seasons.

    1. Stark and Dortmund had more conflicts with each other than just this time..that also concerns the last seasons. DFB's intention probably is to protect Stark.

  19. Stark "escapes" this weekend and will officiate in a Qatar stars league match on Friday together with Salver and Pickel.
