  1. Velasco appointed for Uruguay-England: Spanish tongue (like Uruguay) but European referee (like England), so nobody will complain for this choice :)

  2. RIP Confederation Neutrality rule...

  3. Unexpected Howard Webb for Colombia-Ivory Coast.
    Aguilar the second CONCACAF referee who gets another match, after Geiger.
    A big puzzle here...

    1. Geiger and Aguilar both got a second match while O' Leary and Gassama don't had their first. Weird choices.

    2. Don't forget Williams and Shukralla. :)
      BTW the confederations rule has been broken only to appoint UEFA officials (Proença and Webb), this could sound as the committee trusts only them.
      Colombia - Ivory Coast is very important because the winner will be surely qualified, nevertheless I expected Webb in a different match. To be also added that group C is paired with group D, so England could meet one of these teams in the KO stage...

    3. Of course I meant Proença and Velasco Carballo, not Webb.

  6. See 5:30 of this video: http://vimeo.com/98366236

    Note that Coentrao makes normal movement by his hands only to a certain point. Then, he violently moves only the left elbow in direction of opponent's face. In my opinion, it should've definitely been a straight red card for serious foul play. Thoughts?

    1. I don't agree, for me no Red Card....

    2. Why? I see a clear movement in direction of opponent's face which was totally unrelated to jump.

      Delete
    3. Yellow. He doesn't cock his fist. Collina makes an excellent observation that elbow is best used as weapon when fist is cocked. Just caution.

      Delete
    4. I have my doubts whether you can not does SFP in such situation without 'cocked fist'. I will stay in minority then, it's SFP for me :)

    5. Taking UEFA's R.A.P. and FIFA's educational video as guidelines, this is a perfect example of the elbow used as a tool. Therefore a YC with an orange tendency in my book.

    6. Can you provide a number of the video?

    7. Check them all to find the consistency between them. A37 as an example.

    8. @Hubert
      Because I don't see the intentional movement you are describing.. but of course I can be wrong.. I evaluate this elbow as reckless but not intentional, so YC.

      Delete
    9. Chefren, so you think Coentrao makes the same kind of movement by both hands?

  7. My predictions for Friday:
    ITA-CRC: Peter O'Leary (New Zealand)
    SUI-FRA: Benjamin Williams (Australia)
    HON-ECU: Nawaf Shukralla (Bahrain)
    After the latest appointments, I try to expect the unexpected ;)
