  1. Unbelievable appointment for Dortmund. Obviously Collina and co did not notice that Benquerenca took a wrong offside decision himself by overruling his assistant referee (see offside teamwork clip). A referee with such a mistake for such a match - brave and risky.

    Marciniak's designation confirms that Messner is an observer appreciated by UEFA for younger / promising officials. The match makes sense. It is good to see that besides the abolishment of ED and the coaching programme Vad is still given a chance. I am however surprised about his observer. As far as I know Alan Snoddy and Istvan Vad worked together at the Iber Cup in the referee committee of the tournament. Such personal relations don't belong into UCL in my opinion.

    Manuel Diaz Vega observes Moen 2x within a couple of days. First Germany-Scotland, now Benfica-Zenit. Maybe he is his "mentor"?

    1. I am the Referee Director of the Iber Cup. I can confirm that both Istvan and Alan were involved in our tournament but they were not on the referee committee. I think this counts ;) they were just two of the observers at the tournament. I believe Istvan's got Alan as an observer for a simple reason: Alan's Istvan's mentor in UEFA and he will be there to mentor him.

    Interesting appointments for the Slovenian officials. Are we to assume from this that Skomina's team has been completely reshaped for the new season?

    ReplyDelete
  4. For sure. The mixed team had no future. And Praprotnik and Vukan are both young (specially Praprotnik). So I would also expect that UEFA will give Skomina rather medium matches in order to allow these assistants to get used to CL. Keep in mind that both will make their CL debuts on Tuesday. On the other hand we will probably see Mitja Zganec more often at Jug's side, as UEFA has changed the requirements for AARs in UCL (AAR1 MUST be a FIFA official). So with four Slovenians Zganec is needed.

  5. Huge mistakes in favour of Lierse in yesterday's match vs Anderlecht. 2 correct goals disallowed for Anderlecht because of wrong offside decisions. Refferees were: S.Delferière - Y.De Neve, F.Stalport

  7. Benquerença is unexpected. He was not at his best in Slovan Bratislava - BATE, the big problem was the missed cooperation with ARs and AARs. He decided everything by himself, making some remarkable mistakes. I hope that in this new assignment he could improve. But being at his last matches on international stage, one could guess that the appointment made by UEFA is just a gift. Remember, the same happened for Lannoy in Barcelona - Manchester City on last season.
    Of course this time I wish a different outcome.
    Bertino Miranda might have been a safe choice at his side (excellent decision in Bratislava) but he will be with Proença, having already officiated Arsenal in the play off.
    As it is still the MD1, perhaps UEFA found the "courage" to make this appointment.
    We will see.

    Good luck to Marciniak at his debut in CL and nice to see again Vad, hopefully in a few months he will be able to convince again committe, despite of the fact that he was punished for EURO 2012 mistakes for about 2 years, he is still young and he can work for a promotion...

    1. You can indeed argue how Jug has got into this position. But at least he justifies this by overall good performances and a really promising development. Moreover, he is in the coaching programme so that UCL appointments are nothing but expected.

      Delete
  9. As for Bayern - Manchester City to be played on Wednesday: with a Turkish observer and a Serbian delegate, both Cakir and Mazic should be out. The same can be said for English/Scottish and German referees, due to the teams involved. No Italian are possible here because Roma is there. Swedish observer told us that Eriksson has a match on Monday evening, so it is not likely he will be there on Wednesday. Kuipers had this match on last season. Lannoy is not an option, in my opinion. Excluding then all the referees appointed for Tuesday, we have only the Spanish Elite officials (Velasco or Undiano, but RFEF CTA doesn't report any appointment for this season) and Kassai. My guess is the Hungarian. Indeed, a possible confirmation is that Vad has not any Kassai's companion in his crew.
    Let's see.

    1. I had the info the Kassai is injured. So he might be out from CL MD1

    2. Thanks Edward, so I change my prediction in Undiano Mallenco.

    3. Neither Undiano or Carballo had a match this weekend. Mateu Lahoz had the Madrid clash yesterday and Borbalan had Barcelona/Bilbao yesterday as well. We could see Carballo, perhaps; he was trusted for a UCL semi last year, although I suspect that Collina must have had a panic attack over that Brazil performance...Could it be a final test for Karasev/Bebek?

      Delete
    4. Krasev can't be there due to CSKA Moscow presence in the same group.
      For Bebek, well, I think that a match like this, prior to join Elite category, would be really too much.

      Delete
    5. Well, Bebek seems like a very calm rReferee to me. It would be worth a try....

  10. OT: In MLS, Toronto is furious at Dave Gantar (FIFA, CAN) after this very controversial 93rd minute decision. Opinions?
    http://www.mlssoccer.com/news/article/2014/09/14/toronto-fc-steaming-after-controversial-call-disallows-late-would-be-winner-

    My thought: Gilberto pulls down the defender while tackling through his legs. For me, the foul decision is acceptable, although narrow.
    On a side note, Alan Kelly had his 13th MLS game this season, the third highest total among referees this season.

    1. Yes in my opinion. He is heading not directly to the goal. Also if you freeze frame you can see the number of defenders and the location of defenders are not enough for a DOGSO.

  19. Frank De Bleeckere will abe at the Juventus Stadium to observe Szymon Marciniak, too. It's the first time when both gentlemen met with each other live. Previously, Marciniak discussed his games with the mentor via Internet. There is no more fear nor stress before this game than before previous ones. Decision to give a penalty in Krasnodar was backed by observer and Marciniak got 'the real high marks, not to say excellent' for last two international games.

    The full interview:

    1. I am happy to hear that international referees have succeeded in their games and get high marks, don't misunderstand me. But I would dare to say that both Krasnodar and Tallinn belong to Marciniak's "poorer" performances - even though the word poor is not meant literally. I have just seen him better in other matches.
      So I cannot lose the feeling that these officials including Marciniak are planned for Euro 2016 and, come what may, have to be pushed into Elite with as many high marks as possible...

      By the way, did not Marciniak meet FdB in Nyon? I thought the face2face meetings of the 7 mentees with their mentors was the first part of the Nyon seminar in August.

    2. Sorry, my mistake. It's the first time when De Bleeckere will watch him life when refereeing. Sorry.

    9. Hagi: I don't understand how anyone could buy these UCL referee kits, they're so hideous! :)

      On a general note, Adidas should understand once and for all that very light grey is NOT an option for kits. It is ugly, hard to spot, and impossible to wear - how many times do you go to games to find that one team plays in white or a light colour, clashing with the grey?

    1. Right between those two decisions (DOGSO and goal) we could perfectly see, why the vanishing spray not helpful. The defenders simply ignored it, tippytoed towards the ball and the ref did nothing.

      Delete
    2. The spray itself IS useful. However, if a referee does not pay attention to the behaviour of the wall, it is not the fault of the spray. More in the report.

      Delete
    3. A referee can also pay attention to the behaviour of the wall without using the spray - or keep a bigger distance between the ball and the position, where he makes the wall to stand. The players will move towards the ball and than the distance will be perfectly right.

      Delete
    4. If he does not pay attention, the wall will always move. However, it is easier to see if the distance is still the same with the spray IMHO.

  24. I am watching Liverpool - Ludogorets. One penalty appeal (28') when Bulgarian players was shoved by his opponent. Could've been a pen for my taste. Jug quickly booked Ludogorets' player for a really rough offense (could've been a red as well) and then surprisingly took the risky strategy to not book tactical fouls. Liverpool was the team that benefited from this much (29', 31', 37'). Some problems with positioning (caught in front of play sometimes). But at the end an OK performance :)

    How many referees will go to Euro 2016? Is there a selection process similar to the FIFA World Cup?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No one knows how many (yet), as the tournament just expanded to 24 teams. Expect something around 16-20 would be my guess. There is a selection process, but as far as I know there is no 'open list' of preselected referees as in FIFA for the WC. The selected referees will certainly be in the Elite group by mid 2015 (perhaps even the end of 2015 in rare cases). So basically that restricts the eligible group to a few refs - 23 Elite at the moment, plus a few promotions and minus a few demotions/retirements. For sure, Collina et al. have a very good idea of who they would like to send, and evaluations in UCL/Euro qualifiers this year will be crucial in determining the ranking of referees for the Euro.

      Delete
    2. Brych, Cakir, Clattenburg, Collum, Eriksson, Kassai, Kuipers, Mazic, Moen, Rizzoli, Skomina, Undiano/Velasco should be relatively sure names (12). Kralovec, Bebek, Karasev, Marciniak, Sidiropoulos and of course Turpin should be further options which I would deem as quite sure, either as main referees or as fourth officials. And then the question is whether someone like Proenca is able to attend the tournament given the abolishment of the age limit.

  29. An extremely difficult and critical decision by AR1 Sokolnicki in Turin:

    15:50 match minute
    http://livefootballvideo.com/fullmatch/europe/uefa-champions-league/juventus-vs-malmo-ff

    He flagged an offside which impeded a penalty kick for a clearly deliberate handball by a defender. The problem is that the offside position was not existent as the defender's foot made the attacker's upper body onside. Extremely difficult to see, but if you are unsure and having doubts, you should actually let your flag down in favour of the attacker. Another attacker was obstructing the AR's line of vision, too. What is your view?

  30. A pretty good performance by Kralovec (CZE) and his assistants.
    He had only one difficult decision to make: at the 1' minute (!) a penalty appealed in favor of Monaco. REF + AAR2 say no. Nevertheless, the replay raises my doubts.

    2. Let me add that, as you will see, it happened in front of AAR2.
      There are two possible ways to understand it:
      1) the attacker tried to put his leg between the two the defender's legs->play on
      2) the defender ''placed'' the attacker's footinbetween his legs, not on purpose ->penalty

      Delete
    3. Overall this is no penalty for me. I would go with 1).

    4. Thanks, I agree with both of you regarding the no-penalty decision. Just play-on, no foul for the defender. I think that the attacker doesn't do it on purpose - I mean the movement of his foot.
