Pavel Královec promoted to Elite

While Germany's Florian Meyer has to leave the highest group of UEFA refereeing, Czech Pavel Královec has been promoted to Elite Group.

German Deniz Aytekin, Croatia's Ivan Bebek, French official Antony Gautier and finally Romania's Ovidiu Hategan have been promoted to ED. These promotions are the first movements within UEFA's referee category system so far, others will probably follow.

Tony Chapron of France and Polish official Marcin Borski have been demoted from ED to First Group.

  3. Hi Niclas,

    as expected again a signal of our reliable work here on your blog.
    At least all these promotions and demotions were guessed, according aso to our reports.
    Waiting for the rest, this is already a very important confirmation for us, I think.
    Reasonable decisions.

  4. Yes, at least we were able to predict most of the changes by reading between the lines in appointments, performances ....

    The full category list will follow ~ this evening (perhaps tomorrow).

  5. By the way, why Meyer out now and not 6 months or 1 year ago?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Perhaps that was the condition for promoting Aytekin and not relegating Gräfe? (= perhaps a country should not have more than 4 Elite/ED slots..).

    ReplyDelete
  7. Mazic promotion also should be a safe thing.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I cannot confirm that :(, it seems as if he stays in ED.

    1. In this season only Stavrev, Hagen, Kralovec and Strahonja are considered for promotion. There is no chance for any other referee to be promoted.

    2. If that's right, then it would be strange..how can you a pre list official not consider for promotion?

      Delete
    3. what a syntax, shame on me :P

    4. So referee with the best performances from ED and one of the best performances overall from UEFA referees will not be promoted... Would be terrible decision.

      Delete
    5. One could perhaps understand it against the mere fact that even Kralovec, who was highly respected by FIFA and provided with many important matches in UEFA, too, had to wait 1,5 years.

      Delete
    6. Yes, I was thinking about it but no... I can't understand it. The best performances, the best personality and it's all unimportant because referee can't be promoted after only half a year in one category. Ridiculous.

      Delete
    7. Best performances ok, might be (we don't know the marks, but really could be the case), but can a personality be "the best"??

      Delete
    8. The style is for sure the best. And taking into account his ability detect and punish hardly every unsporting behaviour in mix with UEFA instructions...

      Delete
    9. My point is that a personality simply cannot be the best.

      Delete
    10. Maybe you're right. It may be the best approach, style but personality may be strong, average, poor ;)

      Delete
    11. Yes I just mean you cannot compare personalities.

      Delete
  9. "In this season only Stavrev, Hagen, Kralovec and Strahonja are considered for promotion. "

    Why?
    Remember that Milorad Mazic is 39 years old so for his reason he should be immediatly promote because the oldest Elite development... I think that if confirmed this is a nosense.

  10. Polish referees:
    ELITE: none
    ELITE DEVELOPMENT: none
    1ST CATEGORY: Marcin Borski (demotion), Szymon Marciniak (advance), Paweł Gil
    2ND CATEGORY: Robert Małek (demotion), Hubert Siejewicz
    3RD CATEGORY: Daniel Stefański (new), Paweł Raczkowski (new)

    1. A pity there is not Paweł Gil in ED but I really think UEFA plan to push Szymon Marciniak very quick...

      Delete
    2. It's a small surprise, after Jozef Marko and Hugh Dallas as observers.

      Delete
    3. And good, expected level performances...

  11. Out of topic: if you want to have many situations to evaluation, controversial ones, not clear ones, you should or even must download Torino - Milan match in Serie A...

    1. Romeo had a very difficult work, do you believe me if I say that I still don't understand if it was foul by Pazzini prior to Milan goal?

      Delete
    2. Do you want to know my marks to referees team?
      Andrea Romeo - 8.9
      Riccardo Bianchi - 8.3
      Alessandro Giallatini - 8.4
      Francesco De Luca - 8.0
      Mauro Bergonzi - 8.4
      Leonardo Baracani - 8.2

      I think Andrea Romeo had fantastic communication with players and colleagues! Really don't remember such amazing contact! Pazzini goal was correct, what he could have done when an opponent ran before him and Pazzini was in high pace? Nothing, this little push was absolutely no foul, legs were mixed undeliberately! Two further big decisions: no penalty after Ambrosini handball in 83' - hands were really obvious but deliberate? No penalty on Bianchi in 32' seems also correct although there were no replays... Also handball by Torino player before the penalty area was obvious, Romeo saw it and again no infrigement! And again, to my mind a correct call!

      I understand if someone say there was a penalty to Milan, but Romeo showed consistent and lenient approach to handballs. And I loved it! Fantastic game by Romeo if you ask me. Bergonzi must have had a big influence in Pazzini goal situation, Baracani detected Di Cesare reckless tackle on Amelia well, all cards went correct, as I mentioned, fantastic cooperation with assistants and one of the most wonderful approach to the players! A pity Romeo is not and will not be FIFA referee. With such presence, style, calls...

      I was really really positively impressed!

    3. I haven't watched the full match, just highlights, I have by the way big pleasure to read your report about an Italian match.
      Here Romeo was heavily criticized and all the people didn't agree with your report, saying that the penalty for Torino was clear and also the foul by Pazzini prior to the third Milan goal.
      Andrea Romeo is at his tenth season in serie A, the last, because here a referee without the FIFA badge can stay in serie A panel not more than 10 seasons. He can anyway receive a special license, in order to referee a further year, in case of excellent performance, according to AIA rules.
      Furthermore, he is well known as a referee who tries to let the game flow as far as possible. Of course, this doesn't mean that he is lenient, he just wants to whistle to needed, in favor of the game.

    4. If you have videos of those above-mentioned scenes, pls post it here. Niclas will be able to evaluate it without downloading :) Yes, I know most of people think Romeo made crucial mistakes, to me PERFECT performance, maybe even 9.0/9.1!

      Delete
    5. It's difficult to find vdeo of the requested situations, you should downoad the whole match to be sure to watch everything ;)
      in the highlights you can only find Pazzini goal

      regards!

      Delete
    6. Here a video, if Niclas is interested:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPKNNzhAJPI

      starting from 00:52 you can watch the situation of the goal scored by Pazzini

      anyway, I suggest to download the full match, also in order to have a decent quality of the video

      regards

      Delete
    7. Thanks, there aren't any good replays in the web. I thought maybe at Italian sites but I was wrong...
      Every people interested in refereeing should watch this match as a spectacle of many controversial and no clear situations to solve by match officials. Maybe at sedziapilkarski.pl will be a deep analyse concerning this match soon :)

      Regards!

    8. Agree with Chef re Pazzini goal - absolutely fine, defender was a joke.

  14. Kinhofer and Christian Fischer missed Tymoschuk goal in Augsburg-Bayern DFB Pokal match. Nearly impossible to see, another argument for goal-line technology...

  15. Christian Bandurski. Not Fischer.

    1. Koo Ja-Cheol should have also been sent off... The match became a war right now...

      Delete
    2. Hm, his hand should not be in Ribery's face, right. Nonetheless, Ribery's action was still clearer, more violent, and which was probably the reason for the difference in the personal punishment, Ribery continued it when Kinhöfer was already very close to the players. And yes, now Kinhöfer is loosing control.

      Delete
    3. Hehe now we have 3/4 crucial situations, a handball penalty to my mind.

      Delete
    4. Two next YC, Bayern wanted penalty - it was obvious hand but I think undeliberate, fans are furious!!!

      Delete
    5. Augsburg claimed for the penalty. The ball was in the air for 30 metres, Dante's hand position did not change, clear body volume enlargement, to my mind this was a penalty.

      Delete
    6. I'm more lenient with regard to handballs. Pls, download Torino - Milan, see situations from 45' and 83' and you'll know what is my ideal approach to handballs :D

      Now, with Kinhofer approach, Dante's handball shouldn't have been whistled... Ohne klar Linie Mr Kinhofer...

      Delete
    7. Sh**, I'm too tired and mix too many words today off... :D

      Delete
    8. Hehe at least your German is nearly correct.. (ohne klare Linie..;)).

      Delete
    9. facepalm and good night for today hehe

      Delete
    10. ;))
      By the way, does one recognize that Augsburg is the weakest team in Bundesliga? I think they could manage much more if they always played like that..

      Delete
  16. Niclas, do you think that the National FAs already know the categories?
    Any other news about the First group?

    Regards,

    1. I don't have the full list at the moment, I am still waiting myself as well.
      Just know Jug stays in First, Karasev seems to be still there, too.

      And no, I am not sure whether the national FAs already know it.

      The new FIFA referee are of course already included in the categories (mostly Third group with some exceptions), this means we could have an overview of the newcomers tomorrow as well.

    1. I would be even more strict towards Stark :) In United-Galatasaray he had AAR who were mainly in fault. Here those were his autonomous calls, one crucial mistake for sure, penalty to Borussia is a joke, to my mind 7.4, but it's only my feeling.
