  1. Is it really feasible to have the same observer two games running?
    Also worth pointing out FIFA and UEFA seem to be at odds as to who accompanies Kassai. FIFA are keeping faith with Erös, while UEFA look the like of Tóth.

    1. It is indeed strange - Kassai's AARs might indicate that Vad gets a match on Wednesday though.

    2. I agree. Mazic looking more and more likely to handle Real-Juve now. However, I have a sneaky feeling it will be Kralovec

    3. Kralovec is busy at U17 WC.

  6. Gräfe's nomination to oversee this high-profile fixture and the presence of Dallas could indicate the commitee are seriously considering promoting the German to the Elite Category.

  11. Out of topic

    European play-off draw (15 & 19 November)
    Portugal v Sweden
    Ukraine v France
    Greece v Romania
    Iceland v Croatia

    Very nice draw.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Greece and Croatia will be happy with their respective draws (no disrespect to Romania and Iceland).
      I think the French will be the most dissapointed. Ukraine were in our group for the qualifiers and let me tell you they are a brilliant team.

      Delete
    2. Prediction:
      POR-SWE: Webb/Kuipers

    3. I would appoint referees as follows (does not mean I predict it).

      Greece-Romania: Jonas Eriksson and Felix Brych
      Iceland-Croatia: Alberto Undiano and Stéphane Lannoy

      Uruguay-Jordan: Cüneyt Cakir and Viktor Kassai
      Mexico-New Zealand: Ravshan Irmatov (Azteca) and Wilmar Roldán

  12. I feel sorry for the referee who has to go to Iceland in November... Freezing!!!

  13. Correctly disallowed goal for offside by Stefan Lupp (Muntari).

    ReplyDelete
  14. Boring match in Milan. Both YC's correct. And as Niklas said Lupp correctly disallowed a goal for Milan.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Eriksson IMO should of sent off Lewandowski after he elbowed Koscielny in the 64th minute.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Disagree. Only worthy of the booking in my view. Eriksson has been spot on so far IMO.

      /Swedish observer

      Delete
    2. Swedish observer, I too believe he performed very well in this game. However, I still have my doubts in the elbow situation...

      Delete
    3. I honestly think that a yellow card is the correct decision there. Full control for Jonas, and full respect, in the entire match. Dortmund won, but it wasn't deserved in my view. Still the overall impression of the team from Sweden was very good, and I would assume that the Turkish observer would mark Jonas Eriksson with 8.5. Jonas Eriksson's progress and consistency the last year has been fast and steady. If he continues like this - and I hope that he will - he has to be one of the referees in Brazil next summer.

      /Swedish observer

    4. Having the benefit of hindsight and many replays, I will retract my comment.
      Yellow seems a sensible decision from Eriksson.
      Of what I've seen of him in recent months, I would be surprised if he's not officiating in Brazil. Good performance!

      Delete
  16. Muntari could/should have been sent off twice: first a malicious challenge on Busquets and after that a slide tackle on Messi in which he just missed the ball - second bookable offence.
    On the whole he is doing well, as expected from him. Hasn't shown any effects from last weekend ;)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Muntari got a yellow card for the first foul by the way.

      Delete
    2. I agree with the YC on Muntari. No reason to exaggerate.

  17. Celtic-Ajax.
    Bebek awarded a penalty kick to Celtic and gave a straight red card to Biton (CEL): both correct decisions.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I must admit it's excellent feeling to see such rough tackle is strictly penalized by red card! Many refs forget to protect the players.

      Delete
  18. Any news on Jug?

    ReplyDelete
  19. How was Cakir last night?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Blatant mistake by AR1 Duran in first half (22'). Wrong offside flag denying a good chance to score to Napoli.
      Cakir with a certain leniency until the end of first half, when he was forced to issue cards.
      At the beginning of second half there were two penalty appeals by Napoli, at first a handball, then another situation.
      Wait for the report and you will read everything..

      Delete
  20. Bebek was great, Kassai was overall good (including his ARs).

    ReplyDelete
  21. Btw the 2nd yc by Tagliavento was issued for infringing the distance in the wall. Good application of the LotG of course, but does it in your opinion reflect common sense on that level (doesn't mean I think like that)?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think that referees must always take into account common sense, when the infringements are blatant, the cards are ok.
      In this case, especially in the situation of the first foul, Tagliavento was right.

      Delete
    2. The same situation as in the 2012 U-17 Euro's semi final (NED-GEO) where Ionut Marius Avram issued two cautions in one minute, the second one for breaking the wall...
      The question is: did you ever see the player deliberately breaking the wall not being cautioned? Me not. The referee had no choice. Sorry, he had one - close both eyes. But it's not my favourite solution.
      In a sum, the only guilty person is the player.

      Delete
  22. I would appoint following officials for WC play off:

    Portugal-Sweden: THOMSON - STARK
    Ukraine-France: KRALOVEC - VELASCO CARBALLO
    Greece-Romania: CLATTEMBURG - MAZIC
    Iceland-Croatia: ROCCHI - MOEN

    Uruguay-Jordan: ERIKSSON - LANNOY
    Mexico-New Zealand: PITANA - AL BADWAWI
