  1. Bebek, Karasev, De Sousa and Gocek will handle their second EL play off match in a week, due to the replacements made in first legs. UEFA should confirm them.
    Another important observer for Bebek, the only committee member in these return legs (waiting for two missing appointments).
    Important observer also for Kenn Hansen and Sergei Karasev.
    I think that the Croatian and the Russian officials, former Elite development, are really ready to jump in Elite.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree Chefren. Bebek and Karasev will probably be Elite from December.

      Delete
    2. Yes.
      De Sousa and Göcek for Duarte and Aydinus (so it was only changed in the FPF and TFF). Maybe I would have expected Jug, Kulbakov or Turpin for a second play-off. Who will fill up the remaining match?
      Boiko gets one after his "bad" performance (but no very important observer). But therefore Zelinka with a good game and important observer. This counts for Hansen, too; and Madden, Lechner and Kruzliak as well. Also nice to see Delferiere back in action.

      Delete
    3. Yes good opportunity for Zelinka to display his potential.

      Delete
  2. Watche Zwayer in the Bundesliga opener Bayern - Wolfsburg... Foul detection on his normal standard (bad), missed penalty for Wolfsburg, bad card selection, no messures against dissent.
    I'm very pleased to see that Zelinka got a good appointment.

    1. 'Missed penalty for Wolfsburg' - are you talking about Dante vs Olić clash at 78'?

      Btw, both cards were orange to me. If the referee issued red instead of yellow, he wouldn't be wrong.

      Delete
    2. Yes. No intention of playing or even shielding the ball just a clear foul.

      Don't agree on the orange cards though.

    For me a crucial mistake by Kuipers and his Team. How could he, AAR2 and AR2 miss this penalty?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's enough for a penalty, the holding is clear.
      Kuipers and AAR2 should have paid more attention to penalty area duels.

      Delete
    2. I agree, crucial mistake from team Kuipers !

      Delete
    3. Chefren, to whom you would assign this crucial mistake? Kuipers or AAR2?

      Delete
    4. I think that prior to each match, referee must discuss this topic with his AARs, sharing responsibilities on free kicks.
      I can't understand in this case who was looking more at the middle of penalty area, but perhaps both missed the scene.
      If I had to choose between them, I would give more responsibilities for the missed scene to Kuipers, because an additional assistant referee should always have as first priority the goal line, to assess a possible goal / no goal situation.
      To be added also that in this match AAR2 was not Liesveld as usual, due to Van Boekel injury, perhaps for this reason there was a small lack in teamwork.

      Delete
    5. Thank you for the Explanation, Chefren, I'll be sure to include that in the Report.

      Delete
    6. In my opinion this mistake must be shared by the referee and his additional assistant. AAR2 was very close and the situation was happening right in front of him in his area of responsibility and vicinity. Kuipers was extremely wrongly positioned at this free-kick, an error of concentration probably. Being farther to the right, he would have formed a better visual triangle with AR2 and AAR2 and would have had a sidewise view on the holding, which makes it much easier to spot it. As Kuipers had all necessary time to position himself correctly before releasing the free-kick, it is also his mistake. 7.9 for both.

  9. Antonio Mateu Lahoz had a very challenging match in Malaga - Athletic Bilbao this evening.
    Especially in the last minutes of the game, he gave two straight red cards, he annulled a goal for unknown reasons and it is reported that he missed a penalty in favor of Athletic.
    Here the goal, annulled, scored by Athletic Bilbao keeper:

      Problematic first red. Could be a cumulation of two yellows, but it's straight red... Totally correct second sending off. The goal was annulled because of offside. The Athletic player was in offside at the moment of pass and then was within playing distance. However, the problem is he was passive... Penalty should've been given for GK's foul on Athletic player later on. Watch second half from 42:15 to the end.

      Delete
    2. I watched now all the situations.
      1) This RC could have been absolutely correct, as you wrote, giving two YCs (the first for having kicked the ball away with excessive force and the second for the unsporting behavior against the opponent). But the straight red issued in this way becomes questionable...
      2) RC for SFP (or even violent conduct, the player knew that the ball was away), absolutely correct.
      3) For me crucial mistake, the player in offside was not active, he didn't influence the opponents.
      4) Penalty to be given...

      Furthermore, please watch Lahoz at 95:58, what is the meaning of his gesture, kicking the player who was on the ground?

      Delete
    3. OMG... facepalm

      I know he is a very straightforward man, but please...

    4. His interaction with players....is well....how shall I say this politely....impossible. Such behaviour can not be tolerated.

      Delete
    5. At least, we can be sure that we never saw such style of refereeing, what is quite a big achievement of Mr. Mateu Lahoz. :)

      Delete
    6. According to Mr. Mourinho, he is the best referee of Spain: http://www.goal.com/en/news/12/spain/2011/02/13/2351123/real-madrids-jose-mourinho-happy-with-referee-mateu-lahoz
      German Wikipedia Claims he is known for his "ungewöhnliche Maßnahmen" (strange/unfamiliar actions) and always able to communicate with players.

      Delete
  10. Something that has crossed my mind at times is that many of the best ARs are quite short (160-175 cm) and usually a bit shorter than the referee. Is this pure coincidence or is being short an advantage for an AR? (I am close to 190 and I'm way better as an AR than as a referee, so I find it somewhat odd.. :p )

  13. You can say that again... Schörgenhoger with three RCs in injury time (93', 94', 94'). What happend there?

    ReplyDelete
  14. After a goal scored by Partizan in Baku, Schoergenhofer issued three straight red cards, including the scorer. The only explanation, waiting for videos, is a provoking celebration against the fans or even a riot with the opponents...

    1. "Horror" in Baku! Yesterday, upon arrival at the training stoned a bus of FK "Partizan", and in training (as recorded UEFA Delegate) stands with supporters of the home team threw stones at Partizan's players. Tofik Bahramov Stadium was in a disastrous state. The home side were behaving in an unsportsmanlike beating, pressing the Austria's referees team, a referee Schörgenhofer from the beginning tolerate rough play host, which later culminated. A Neftçi PFK player who is sent-off (two YC's) earlier earned a direct RC. In extra-time "impotent" home team after the Partizan's winning goal (1:2) yet made a confrontation where they excluded two Neftçi PFK players and one Partizan FK. I think that the UEFA Disciplinary Committee will have their hands full, and I don't think the Mr. Michel Vautrot will not be happy.

  16. Good first half by Bebek. The match is challenging since both teams are playing with passion. But he is handling it well. Also he correctly waived play-on in a scene at min. 39'.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The second half became was relatively easy especially after the 3-0 but until the min. 81'. At that point Bebek awarded a correct penalty to Zwolle and with the score at 3-1 we watched a better match. But nothing changed. Good performance overall and the penalty is correct.

      More on the report.

      Intentional? Punishable?

      Delete
    2. Not intentional, but no natural hand position either. Acceptable for me, though I'm never really sure with those.

      Delete
    3. The most important thing to underline in this situation is, in my opinion, the fact that the touch was not made directly by arm, but it was a rebound on the body. In this case, considering also the short distance, it is not deliberate in my opinion. Here in Italy a few years ago we had a long discussion about that and we came to the conclusion that when the arm (or the hand) is not directly hit, it is very difficult to think that you can punish that.

      Delete
    4. Yes, it first hits his hip and then his arm. And on a second thaught, he tries to tackle and therefore it is not that unnatural that he raises the arm.
      I can support the referee, but still....not really clear.

      Delete
    5. UEFA had one clip in their referee assistance programs (Jonas Eriksson in Schalke-Galatasaray) by which it became clear that handballs with a previous rebound off any part of the body are not automatically undeliberate. As the hand of the defender was raised you can argue that he acted in a careless manner and that his hand was not in a natural position. Nonetheless I would not have whistled it. I however cannot deem this as careless, the hand was only marginally raised in a player typical way in the context of a jump to prevent the ball from entering the penalty area. We often say we should back the referee but in this case my feeling is that Sidiropoulos should have backed the "culprit" (the defender).

      Delete
    6. I am almost certain that the penalty was suggested by his AR.

      Delete
    7. So for me no penalty.Close distance,ball goes to the hand and not the opposite,and i think the hand is in no unantural position.So for all that no penalty.
      But check also the way the penalty was taken.
      This is UNACCEPTABLE.The players have almost reached the ball before the shot was taken.This is a problem growing for Uefa.I would like your opinion.
      Also the no flag by AR2 in the action of the croatian team-3 or 4 players in discussion-IS VERY INTRESTING and i would like your opinion also on that

      Delete
    8. Dear Salvatore, do you have a minute for the NO flag please? I completely agree with you on the growing problem of encroachment at penalty kicks. More attention is needed, while the smallest encroachments should of course not lead to cancelling the penalty kick. But blatant cases have to have this as the consequence.

    1. Persistent infringement is really a problem. Often times the same players are allowed to commit 3 or 4 tackles in a row. Referees should act stepwisely here, increasing the levels of warnings (as your video examples mostly show careless but not reckless tackles) and if the infringements don't stop, don't hesitate to show a card..

      The violent conduct is extremely hard to see but in the replay existent. The YC is a good decision and in line with the laws of the game, even though it is surely closer to a red card than to no card, but yellow suits well.

      About Marciniak. I watched this penalty many times now. Apart from his apparently deficient acceptance (only watching the full match would show whether this was his fault), I tend to call this penalty a mistake. For me the attacker rather lost his balance and, if there is a contact that might cause a descend, this was maybe even rather caused by the attacker himself and not by an unfair or careless action of the defender.
