  2. I must say - First Category has become an impressive mix of talent and experience.

  3. I don't understand this: You appoint Antti Munukka three seasons in a row in Europa League, same with Kristo Tohver and you promote Gestranius ??, Lechner (who made catastrophical mistakes at U-19 or U-17 tournament), the same with Eskov and Vinčić. There is no logic :O

    1. Munukka was good at Dnipro - Pacos Ferreira but he had a catastrophic EURO U21. Tohver wasn't good at Elfsborg - Salzburg.

      Delete
    2. Ok but Gestranius, Lechner, Eskov and Vinčić??? No Europa League appointments and then poof, first category. It is obviously based on EL and CL playoffs, U-21 and U-19 qfs and one WC qf match. Munukka was the first cat2 referee to whistle EL, Tohver also one of the first and now nothing. It just like they promoted someone from cat1 to elite while demoting 14 ED referees,

    3. Harald Lechner also handled the UEFA Youth League match Juventus - Galatasaray when his performance was evaluated by Michel Vautrot who seems to be a rather important observer considering that it was "only" a youth match and that UEFA did not simply select an available Italian as in the majority of cases.

      From my point of view his promotions sounds logical since current national number 1 Robert Schörgenhofer seems to have reached his zenith (remember his last appearance at the absolutely meaningless match Apollon Limassol - Legia Warszawa where even the positions 3 and 4 were determined prior to the kick-off).

      Harald Lechner did not show his best performance during the U17 European Championship last spring and consequently was not considered for any Europa League match since that time. But in my opinion he shows very stable performances in the Austrian Bundesliga including the derby Rapid Wien - Austria Wien.

      Personally I do not think that one should completely write off a 31 year old referee only due to one or two weaker performances.

  4. It is amazing that England does not replace Dean. In my view the English refereeing system can't work properly. Old referees are retained far too long and new referees are therefore not allowed to develop. Sure you can say that Atwell was a mistake, but to be honest I think he was not too bad, and if he had been kept as a Select group referee (and a FIFA referee) he would very possibly have been in category one now.

    From my Swedish perspective it was good to see that Martin Strömbergsson was promoted but also nice to see Bojan Pandzic deservedly reach FIFA level.

    1. I think Attwell had to be demoted for his own well-being. He was in a vicious circle of mistakes, undue media attention and pressure. Perhaps he can return to Select duty one day. FIFA? Not so sure.

  5. Another demotion for Nikolaev. What happened with this referee is a real mystery.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It was the first demotion from Elite to First Cat that could be regarded as a real mystery. Yes, Aleksei had a couple of bad games in CL as Elite, but he never got the second chance as he was almost immediately demoted. Yes, after that he lost his motivation, I think. His refereeing in Russian Championship is no longer as brilliant as before. Moreover, he didn't overcome his problems with English. But all this stuff has nothing to do with the second demotion. He was ok in his EL games. When you consider the demotions and promotions of Russian referees, you can think of them as of the payment for promotion of someone else. In this campaign I mean Eskov who is younger than Nikolaev and who still has the chance to build the career. To support this theory, remember increadibly fast promotions of Vladislav Bezborodov and Maxim Layushkin and parallel demotions of Sukhina and Egorov. All in all, I tend to think that UEFA has in mind "normal" number of berths per each country and in the lower categories each promotion is accompagnied by a demotion. So it's a kind of trade between the national federation and UEFA - the younger referees are pushed in the expense of the elder (even if the veterans are good enough).

    2. What about Eskov? I never heard this name, it seems a political promotion.

      Delete
    3. I never saw him internationally, but he's the best Russian referee domestically. Great potential, superb referee. At least, it's my personal opinion.

      Delete
    4. Dmitry: thanks for this clear explanation.

      Delete
    5. Well, Russia needs someone else besides Sergei Karasev (it seems obvious that Nikolaev and Bezborodov now don't have any chances). So, there were two real options for promotion: Aleksei Eskov and Vitaly Meshkov. Meshkov was considered as a slight favorite year or two ago, but after that he once made a kind of technical mistake in Russian Championship 2012 and it could influence this tie. To be honest, I didn't watch any of international games refereed by Aleksei Eskov, but on the national level he is good enough.

  8. That could be my fault, but I hear for the first time about the Ukrainian and Russian referees promoted to Cat.1
    Anyone seen any matches?

    1. Aranovskiy had AZ - Shakhter Karagandy in which he did well. After that he refereed Tromso - Spurs which I didn't watch. I assume he did well...?

      Delete
    2. BTW, their promotions could also have to do with UEFA wanting high-level referees (at least 1 Cat1) as AARs for Boiko and Karasev...

  9. Atkinson retains his Elite status. To be fair, I think Atko has "steadied the ship" after some very poor performances, this time last year.

  11. Thank you for the categories

    And the new FIFA referees :

    Erik Lambrechts (BEL)

    1. I don't understand something.
      It seems that France only has 8 referees. According to a document published by the french Federation, they sent to UEFA the following "ranking" of french referees: Lannoy - Gautier - Turpin - Chapron - Buquet - Fautrel - Rainville - Bastien - Ennjimi - Millot.
      Ennjimi does not seem to be a FIFA referee in your list. But why did they chose Millot instead of Bastien?

      Delete
    2. Maybe Niclas could post the official pdf document, as he did last year?

      Delete
    3. If I had one I could do it.

      In fact some officials were missing due to copy and paste errors.
      Bastien is there, but Ennjimi is definitely out.

      Delete
    4. Ok better like that because Bastien is much better than Millot.

      Delete
    5. Benoît Bastien (born 17-04-1983), a young talent of the french refereeing, probably a future top referee. Follow.
      In January 2013 Benoît Bastien then 4Off referee had of replaced Stéphane Lannoy injured during the match. On view in the intimate exchange of microphones and headsets on the edge of button on this video:

    6. I think that Turpin and Bastien really are the future of french refereeing.
      But I don't want to give Gautier up, although his last performances were not that excellent. To finish with, Rainville can hope something too.

      Delete
  12. A promotion was expected for Artur Soares Dias. Bad performance at Firenze last week?
    Interesting to see that Spain gets 2 new FIFA referees and not just 1 as predicted. Congrats to Fernández Borbalán. IMHO Mateu Lahoz is the best spanish referee, but those two last CL performances...
    Nice promotion for Delferiere. I would like to see Oliver, Lahoz, Delferiere and Gräfe as Elite group referees.
    Thank you very much.

  20. If my eyes don't deceive me, it looks like Michael Oliver is the youngest official in the first two categories, and just one year older than Kruzliak.
    I see him replacing Atkinson in the Elite Category, two years down the line (form permitting of course).
