    1. Unintelligible, Tanja Schett AUT was removed from the elite. Once again UEFA policy, one more of the Czech Republic, one of Italy, you can think of the rest.

  11. Niclas,

    Can you confirm that these are the only promotions/demotions from the third to second and viceversa? Trustful source?

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  12. @ Anonymous 1: Kever has probably retired.
    @ Anonymous 2: No, I do not have them, sorry. But could come next days.
    @ Paolo: Yes, reliable source, 100%. Furthermore, I have not found the time yet to mark the changes within the categories. But compare this post to this page here, this is the old group system: http://footballrefereeing.blogspot.de/p/uefa-referee-categories.html

  13. What do you think about Serhiy Boiko promotion?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Who's Ukraine's referee instructor? Oh right, Collina.
    No, in general I think Boiko has developed significantly on paper, he got two EL matches and so on. And as outlined in the prediction thread, his observers indicated it, too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Niclas, are you sure that Yunus Yldrim is still here?
    In this new categories, Turkey has 8 referees, insted of 7.
    Cakir, Aydinus, Gocek, Yldrim B., Yldrim Y., Kalkavan, Simsek, Ozkahya

    ReplyDelete
  16. Romanian Federation announced earlier that they will propose Coltescu for 2013 instead of Deaconu, who became the chairman of the National Referees Committee. Was Coltescu not approved or he is just missing from the posted list?

    1. He is in Third Group, so he has fifa badge.

    2. I see that he was added afterwards. Also, Ionescu and Bujor (ROU) are missing from the women's list?

      Delete
    3. Yes, I also forgot him.
      But no, Ionescu is not in the categories.

  17. What do yot think about Milorad Mazic?
    And do you think that Stark had big problems this year,that he was 'in very poor form'?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Does Russia have 9 FIFA-Refs on the list for 2013? Do Meshkov and Vilkov keep their badges, although they (especially Meshkov) are not involved in any game since September (except one for Vilkov last matchday)(after weak performances?)?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Do we have list of FIFA assistant referees available somewhere? That one would also be interesting to see.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hi all,

    thanks a lot for your info. Generally in January, FIFA mail address info@fifa.com answer to request having the full FIFA list updated. It's a excel file with all neam of ref, assistant, women etc etc.
    Niclas is your list already updated with new FIFA promoted name ? What do you think to pubish a dedicated document with OUT names (retired, excluded, personal reasons) and IN names for 2013 ?
    Amazing about F. Mayer: two classes downgrade !!! Elite -> 1st !!
    I take this time to send my best wishes to all for next Christmas and new year ...... Greetings

    1. I am going to reply later on you 4.

    2. It definitiely was a mixed bag for Stark this year, EL final, one excellent EURO match, one poor, problems in Bundesliga and CL. At the same time, Brych was awarded the responsibility to whistle the "Övrebö"-match, which shows UEFA's trust in him. So yes, in the end it was perhaps a bad refereeing year for Stark, which does not mean he has achieved nothing.

      Karasev, Bezborodov, Nikolaev, Layushkin, Meshkov, Eskov, Vilkov, Lapochkin = 8 FIFA refs for Russia (Sukhina retired).

      No, I do not have the FIFA AR list. Unfortunately.

      Meyer's case is normal, if you are relegated from Elite, you normally go to First. Thanks for the remark with the FIFA mail address, I keep it in mind, and also for you a happy Christmas. Regards!


      Delete
    3. Hi, Niclas. You missed Vladimir Kazmenko - 9th Russian referee.

      It's absolutely amazing that Meshkov, who made a technical mistake in domestic league (he awarded second yellow card to a wrong player), was promoted, while brilliant Karasev wasn't.

      Delete
    4. Oh yes you are right, Kazmenko. 9 slots for Russia, that's one more than England has got.

      Delete
    5. Unfortunately, this sounds good on paper, but in practice... Only 5 out of 9 Russian referees got at least one match of this season. Only 4 out of 9 whistled at least one match of group stage. Only 1 referee out of these 4 has any perspectives.

      Regards,
      Dmitry.

      Delete
    6. Does anyone know why England chose every year to nominate less than 10 referees?

      Delete
    7. The majority of officials in EPL are above the age limit. Apart from those currently on FIFA, there are no eligible officials at the moment. Even then, the newest official is Roger East and he is 47!! There are a few referees who could get promoted soon, but I wouldn't expect a new FIFA ref from England for the next couple of years.

    Wonderful matches, I also think that Niclas can be very content with Galatasaray!

  22. Oh I would not say that. On paper, Galatasaray are the easiest. But that's not true, it will be very tough, Cagatay agrees I think ..

  24. I really liked the EL group.

  25. Starting from knockout stage, UEFA should appoint only Elite and Elite dev. referees, correct?
    Is there any chance for Category 1 refs in EL round of 32?
    Niclas?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Looking at the draw Chefren I believe that there are matches for Cat 1 refs.

      BATE(BLR) v Fenerbahçe(TUR)
      Internazionale(ITA) v CFR Cluj(ROU)
      Stuttgart(GER) v Genk(BEL)
      Sparta Praha(CZE) v Chelsea(ENG)
      Ajax(NED) v Steaua(ROU)

      could be given to Cat 1 referees.

      Delete
    2. Last year, there were approximately 10 referees who were supposed to officiate one match in EL k.o. stage, but then some of them failed the tests in Antalya and Yefet was under suspicion so this number was reduced.
      I guess there will be a few First group referees, some should be sure:
      Chapron
      Gil
      Göcek
      Jug
      Karasev
      Mateu Lahoz
      Meyer

      perhaps + Gumienny, Johannesson, Kelly, Dean, some of the experienced officials.

      Delete
    3. Another name of Cat. 1 could be Jakobsson

      Delete
    4. And Koukoulakis could get a match.

      Delete
  26. Well the munchengladbach - Marseille game of gumienny was the best referee performance i saw in the group stage. He was perfect there. I hope he is appointed to whistle one or more games in the knock-out rounds. $uch a shame he isn't elite (and never will).

    2. Hey all,

      First of merry Xmas for all of us, and a huge happy new year.
      I awaited to write on this topic, since there is too much rumors in Turkey as always by relatively important clubs on referee decisions. Now, it is time for me to inform you with just reality.

      First thing which is undoubtful, I personally watched a great Halis Ozkahya performance on this match. Control, foul detection was ok. Cards of Meirelesh were all went correctly. Lets come to what had happened after second YC.

      Here are the videos:
      1.)
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOzSBRiyrk8

      There is no doubt about a spit. A player that comes that close to referee doesnt have a good intent imo.

      2.)

      http://www.tekyurek.com/haber/759_meireles-in-bu-hareketi-ne-olacak

      2nd act: Player obviously making an unaccaptable act against the referee. Here in Turkey, this is "you are a gay" (I really apologise to ppl who are homosexual). In most mediterian zone, as far as I know, it is.

      Well, everyone discuss about the lenght of ban. I dont know anything about rule book for bans. It is up to you....

      Delete
    3. Well, a higher body in Turkish Football Federation has omitted 12 match-ban and replaced it with a 4 match-ban. They note that player do not spit the referee but, while talking very sharply some infregments comes out from his month which was not intentional. :D

      Read the funny decleration:
      http://www.tff.org/default.aspx?pageID=247&ftxtID=16998
      3. E.2012/263

      Thats why I didnt want to write about it. Here is Turkey. Such things happen. Shameful...I am sorry for Ozkahya.
