    1. Agree and I hope Mr. Sidiropoulos will be finally a successor of Kyros Vassaras. Unfortunately, Michail Koukoulakis seems to be underrated by European federation :/

      A pity that only 50% of group stage matches will be broadcasted.

  2. I agree Ville, Greek officials have been underateted by UEFA in general. I remember watching Koukoulakis in a game between Young Boys and Liverpool were I thought he applied himself very well. I too hope Sidiropoulos can become the successor to Vassaras.

  3. US American official Ricardo Portillo has died after having been bullied by a 17 year-old player, who became furious after a yellow card.

    1. Shocking and extremely sad. Man has a passion, do it with a smile and then he dies because one brainless hobbledehoy gets angry at school takes it out on the referee during a match. Embarrassing and disgusting!

      Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May they rest in peace. Amen.

      Ystävällisin terveisin,
      Ville Juoho

  5. Observing is totally impossible..there is hardly any replay, the TV picture quality is low. Doyle missed a very clear penalty after only 90 seconds to Italy. AR1 should have seen that, too. The rest is so far ok.
