  1. This time some big situations from Lechia Gdańsk - Podbeskidzie Bielsko Biała. The referee was Paweł Gil, assistant #2 Marcin Borkowski, both FIFA.

    1) missed penalty?: https://vimeo.com/102448638
    2) red card: https://vimeo.com/102448640
    3) the biggest controversy so far, it was clear obstruction a GK's line of vision for referees: https://vimeo.com/102460733

    1. Missed penalty and the logical consequence if you fail to preventively warn the players. There was some smaller holding before the corner and Gil did not intervene.

      Correct red card.

      I agree with the final decision - offside. I don't know whether they did it, but for a better communication of the decision Gil should have walked out to his AR, discuss it with him, think and take a decision (avoids confusion and ensures an efficient decision-taking process).


      The missing appointments are added in the post.

      Delete
    2. 1) Missed penalty, as explained by Niclas logical consequence after a totally passive approach prior to the corner kick.
      2) I agree with this red card, but many referees here would have given YC. Brave decision, but I ask for more consistency in these situations.
      3) Very questionable, one can understand the decision of annulling the goal, but in my opinion there is room to discuss. Wa the keeper really influenced? I think that he had so much free space in front of him, can we be sure that the ball was hidden by the player? I think we wont have a final answer, but the decision, as said, it's still acceptable.

  2. Some names are missing, also one from "elite training program" if I remember well.
    But I am quite sure that Bebek, Karasev and even both Germans (Aytekin and Grafe) are new elite referees. Hategan, Turpin, Jug will have to wait I think.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I guess only Bebek will be promoted in August. Gräfe is definitely out of the run. Aytekin might be a candidate but it seems as if they also count on Zwayer. In December, we should expect a wave of promotions.

      Delete
    2. Yes, some names are missing (Blom, Delferiere (still injured?), Gräfe, Kakos), therefore many referees of second group. Maybe Gräfe whistles a play-off, however? The other names are quite sure for the play-offs: Bebek, Aytekin, Hategan, Jug, Karasev, Turpin, Marciniak. Or Stavrev if he is not injured (after his replacement last week). No sign of the new listings?

      Delete
    3. Kakos has retired.

      Delete
    4. There are no official signs but my reading of the situation concerning the old Elite Development group members and some others is as follows:

      Still in the run / strong promotion candidates for the next 2 periods: Bebek, Karasev, Aytekin, Hategan, Jug, Marciniak, Sidiropoulos, Turpin
      (I guess Oliver and Zwayer need some more time)

      Unsure: Orsato, Stavrev (both rather no promotion)

      Out of the run: Aydinus, Gräfe, Nijhuis, Stavrev, Strahonja, Vad

      Delete
    5. *Addition to "out of the run": Gautier and Hagen

      Delete
    6. I agree with you concerning the names of promotion by 100%.
      In addition to Oliver and Zwayer: Mateu Lahoz, (Madden, Kulbakov, Makkelie, Kruzliak).
      I do not know what to expect of Gräfe (think of Mazzoleni who reached first group new with 39, I know that he is Italian), Orsato, maybe Stavrev, Nijhuis and even Vad or Hagen because they are not too old (second or third chance?).
      Out of run: Strahonja, Gautier, Aydinus, Gil, Göcek.

      Any news about Blom who will be in charge of an Eredivisie-duel on Sunday but no EL-match?
      Cannot get any further information about Delferiere and Rainville. (Still) injured?
      Charles Schaap instead of Sander van Roekel as AR1 in Kuiper's team for the first Eredivisie-match this season.

  3. Boys 19 final in Norway Cup, the world's largest youth tournament. Kampala - Kurdistan.

    Referee is David Mikla from Poland (maybe someone you know Hubert? ;)
    Seems like a guy with quite some talent.

    1. 4) I hope he stopped a play.
      5) I would definitely prefer a red card here

      Calm and cool attitude visible, Dawid Mikła is from Łódź and is a 6th or 7th level referee at the moment, he is sometimes active as assistant in higher leagues.

  4. Mourinho again... Quote from The Mirror:

    John Terry was judged to have handled a cross from Eljero Elia, who slotted home from the spot. Nathan Ake was then penalised for what appeared to be a fair challenge, allowing Felix Kroos to score the German side's second penalty.

    “I learned nothing from this game. The penalties, especially the last one, were nonsense,” Mourinho said. “Every foul, he gave a free-kick against us to stop the game - and when we had advantage he stopped the game for a free-kick, which stopped us playing."

    “I am disappointed with that because we want to train and the referee didn’t let us have a good session."

    “We were expecting a fast game and competitive game but we come here and the referee thought this was a circus for Bremen fans – for them to have fun - and he killed the match."

    “This game for us would have been perfect. I like the Werder Bremen team - they are fast, intense and they defend with a lot of people. The opponent is perfect for us to compete today, but we couldn’t play.”

    The situations:
    1) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIrFxvr0gMI#t=1294
    2) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpkJoTKVA_M#t=2725

    1. The referee was Harm Osmers from Germany (2. Bundesliga).

      Delete
    2. As I'm sure you noticed as well, both penalty decisions are crystal-clear correct!

      Delete
    3. The second penalty is clear, but to be honest I have doubts on the first one, was the handball really deliberate?
      Anyway, Mourinho is known, nothing to add about him, he always mentions referees to justify his failures!

      Delete
    4. Maybe not completely deliberate in the sense of the word, but absolutely careless and therefore deliberate in the sense of the laws. The arm was carted out widely and not removed to avoid the handball, that is not natural for me.

      Delete
  5. Observer for Dingert is now Aleh Chykun from BLR.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Interesting question from a Norwegian referee rule test:

    "During extra time a penalty is awarded. Before the kick is taken, the referee realises that the penalty was awarded after full time had passed. What should the referee do?"

    ReplyDelete
  7. I originally wanted to show some scenes from the Czech first league, but was unable to find some whole matches. Instead so some Scenes from the German 2nd Bundesliga which started this weekend. Most of the referees usually whistle in the first league, so maybe interesting.

    Düsseldorf - Braunschweig: http://www.bild.de/bundesliga/highlightvideo-36609682.bild.html
    Referee Deniz Aytekin (0:29 and 2:40, two penalty scenes, in the second case DOGSO?)

    Heidenheim - FSV Frankfurt http://www.bild.de/bundesliga/2-liga/saison-2014-2015/spielbericht-1-fc-heidenheim-gegen-fsv-frankfurt-1899-am-1-Spieltag-36609772.bild.html
    Referee Peter Sippel (1:45/2:25 two YC --> 2nd YC)

    Darmstadt - Sandhausen http://www.bild.de/bundesliga/highlightvideo-36609608,auto=true.bild.html
    Referee Robert Hartmann (Handball Penalty + RC)

    KSC - Union Berlin http://www.bild.de/bundesliga/2-liga/saison-2014-2015/spielbericht-karlsruher-sc-gegen-1-fc-union-berlin-am-1-Spieltag-36609788.bild.html
    Referee Günther Perl (0:56 Handball+ Penalty)

    I hope location-restrictions are not a problem, if so, I'm sure you find a way. And if you don't understand what you hear and read consider yourselves lucky...very lucky.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Aytekin: for me clear penalty (0:29), what might have thought Fandel whose instructions not to whistle like WC-referees were not fulfilled in the first penalty situation of the new season!
      The other situation is very difficult to detect (even with replay you cannot see clearly a foul or not), so the decision to play on is reasonable.

      Sippel: 2nd YC correct.

      Hartmann: Penalty + RC correct.

      Perl: No help from (usually good and talented) assistant Foltyn, penalty for me.

  8. 1st matchday of Russian Premier League. Match between CSKA and Torpedo. The referee was Igor Fedotov, but due to injury he must've been replaced by 4th official, Aleksey Matyunin (a 2nd tier referee). The latter awarded a controversial penalty for CSKA. Media echos are really huge in Russian web. "The referee killed Torpedo" is one of headlines... Specially for you:

    1. No penalty for me. The last replay showed that there was no pulling from the defender, so crucial mistake to award a penalty and RC for DOGSO here.

      Delete
    2. Crucial mistake, it was nothing but one should try to back the referee, it was difficult.

      Delete
    3. I'd say it's a very good and brave decision. I can see a tug on the arm, especially from the first replay (not visible on the second)

      Delete
    4. I can understand the referee. But also for me, that is no penalty. Thanks for the video.

      Delete
    5. Anyone detected that kung-fu tackle near the middle-line? It's a whistle and red card for me. :)

      Delete
    6. You mean that one by the white player at 0:52. Yes, at least YC for dangerous play, but that is a studs-up challenge to the head!

      Delete
    7. Yes. It's endangering the safety of an opponent for me, hence a red card and free kick should've been awarded.

      Delete
  9. I have just made my first report, which has been sent to Niclas just a moment ago.

    Qarabag - RB Salzburg (Boiko).

    Very poor performance by the Ukrainian and his AR1, however AR2 was brilliant.
    Marks are 6.9/6.9/8.7

    Two incorrect RC, plus one RC missed. Problems in personality and cooperation, but good foul detection.

    1. A team official of Italian national team has been punished with 6 matches, after the sending off in Uruguay - Italy by Rodriguez. It seems really exaggerated, I of course don't back team officials in their unsporting behaviors, but if we compare such decisions with what happens in the domestic leagues...

      Delete
    2. Actually it's former Greek coach.

      8 matches are definitely too hars. Especially considering the fact the Santos was right on protesting (FIFA doesn't care about that of course).

      Delete
    3. Indeed it is former, sorry 'bout that.

      Delete
    4. Sorry, but if the insults were really heavy, 8 matches are absolutely okay.

  13. Two (or rather three) situations from Polish Ekstraklasa:

    1) red card for DOGSO, referee Paweł Raczkowski (FIFA)
    https://vimeo.com/102542869

    2) handball (deliberate?) and advantage/card situation
    https://vimeo.com/102537213

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1) The referee seems sure about the handball outside the area, I'm not. But we must trust him because he was there. Even after many replays. What is your opinion, Hubert? I must also admit that this touch did not have any effect. The ball was still there. But of course this doesn't mean anything.

      2) YC is mandatory for such holding but I'm not convinced by the fact that the referee tried to give this advantage and then he called back the foul. I think that the advantage was given, so the referee couldn't return back again whistling. He had to wait for the next stoppage of the game, giving a card. The situation was not well managed, even more for the missing card.
      About the handball: it can be never deliberate in such situation in my opinion. The player touches directly the ball when he falls down. No malice.

      Delete
    2. Concerning 1): Considering the way the ball bounces back from the field of play there seems to be a light change of its swerve and direction, so there was a contact very likely. And this contact can only be caused by the hand.

      Delete
    3. 1) Very very difficult. I believe he did not touch the ball, as the flight of it does not change even a little bit. But I would not count it as a mistake, he was closer and I can't be sure. In dubio pro ref.
      2) Missed mandatory YC for blue player. Also, missed free-kick for me and a YC for the handball, although that was completely unintentional.

      Delete
    4. Sorry Howard Maxi,
      "completely unintentional" and you whistle free kick giving a YC?

      Delete
    5. No need to apologize, the wording is very bad. But did his handball not prevent the opponent from maybe getting the ball (earlier)? I'm not 100% sure though.

      Delete
    6. Chefren, I guess Raczkowski wouldn't have whistled it if he wasn't 100% sure.

  14. Difficult Scenes for Bastian Dankert in tonights German 2nd Bundesliga game Kaiserslautern - 60 München. RC for KLA goalkeeper Sippel after a handball DOGSO and now a soft penalty for KLA. A lot to discuss....

    1. I suppose he didn't play the ball with his hand. As for the penalty, I really like this call.

      Delete
    2. I only seen one replay of each situation and for me the penalty is very soft and seemed like some kind of consolation for the RC. The replay I have seen indicates that the ball hit the chest, not the arm, but I do not blame the referee here.
