* Ivan Bebek was originally appointed for this match, but he was chosen to replace Milorad Mažić  in a Champions League match. For this reason, UEFA should publish soon the names of the officials replacing the Croatian crew. 

90 Comments:

  1. Most interesting games for Bebek, Blom and Zelinka. Buquet with Marko, so an importang game for him?

    ReplyDelete
  2. Several important observers here.
    It is the time to decide something about Kuchin, and Trentalange will be there.
    Another committee member for Soares Dias, and Jozef Marko for Buquet.
    Özkahya will be under Batta's eyes...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Usually the group stage matches are refereed by first group referees exclusively. Why Soares Dias and Kuchin then? Seeing the observers this is their last test, right? Maybe you could have expected Estrada Fernandez, Del Cerro Grande, Clancy (Hunter and Valeri) as well. Very important games for Buquet and Özkahya, but also for Blom, Zwayer, Madden and Aranovskiy.
      Bebek, no Karasev, no Kulbakov and Mateu Lahoz. Let's see next match day (UCL and UEL)...

      Delete
    2. There is not a written rule about officials appointed for EL group stage matches, but yes generically they are all Category 1 referees.
      UEFA anwyay uses some matches to test Category 2 referees, that happened also in the past.
      Bebek is there, read more carefully ;)

      Delete
  3. Interesting to see Bebek i EL. I thought he will get CL match.

    ReplyDelete
  4. @ Chefren: Yes, I recognized Bebek, maybe I missed the word 'but' ;) So do you think that we will see other cat. 2 referees (mentioned above, added by Hansen, Munukka and Tohver) in the next matches?
    How do you evaluate the chances of Valeri, Massa and Guida? Who will be the possible new italian FIFA referees (that are appointed by their national federation until the end of september) if Damato (and maybe unexpected others) give up their badges? Peruzzo, Irrati? Any rumours, from other countries as well (because you are always well informed)?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Uefa.com has removed Bebek appointment from the site. The whole list of officials for this match is not available now. Don't know what happened, perhaps they are going to change the referee for some reasons.
      I try to answer to your questions: Yes I think that we will see other Cat. 2 referees in the next Matchdays, and surely Tohver is one name (for now, he has a match in Youth League). I don't know what UEFA wants to do with Munukka, in the recent times they are focusing on Gestranius, including this last appointment for Thursday.
      Another name can be Hansen, yes.
      About Valeri: difficult situation to read. Two years ago, in 2012, after the U19 tournament, he also made his debut in the EL group stage, but then after that, he seemed to be forgotten by committee. I think that they were not satisfied but of course I can't be sure.
      Massa and Guida will have their chances in the next years, as for now it seems that UEFA started to focus with Massa, following him closely with relevant observer (for example De Bleeckere). He officiated an important match in under 21 2015 qualifiers, Sweden - Greece. But of course they need time.
      I think that Damato will stay a further year in FIFA lists, until the end of 2015, and then he will be replaced. Very difficult to make prediction about that, some referees still need time. But surely Damato is the one with more chances to be replaced now, also due to his age.

  5. the match Borussia Mönchengladbach - Villarreal CF the full team of Croatian referees is relegated for Champions League match Chelsea vs Schalke 04. The appoitnment referees for this match is to be defined by uefa...

    What could be a problem for serbian team? Maybe visa requirements? It's needed almost 10 days to get visa for UK. But croatian doesn't need it.

      True, probably (99,99%). A visa requirements is a problem and slow bureaucracy. Mr. Mazic was in Oslo when he needed to apply for a visa. Seven days of the procedure, but the administration is not working for the weekend, unfortunately. Only the UK wasn't abolished by all EU members "visa system" for the Serbia. It's sad that bureaucracy prevents athletes to develop, but that's life.

      Agree! IMO those ''big'' referees (sportsmen) should be allowed to enter without a visa.

      Delete
    3. Thanks for the info (also for the anonymous in the other post). Is not there an option to get a permanent visa for let's say half a year? Or do these officials have to ask for a visa every time (!) they go to a European match?

      Ivan Kruzliak with his team instead of Ivan Bebek in Moenchengladbach!

      Delete
    5. Anonymous16/9/14 12:48

      The shortest visa for UK is half a year. There is also option for visa with duration of one year but IMO with documents received for one match not possible to get it. (and also costs 500 EUR)

      Delete
    6. Well this sounds as the most important test for Ivan Kruzliak until now!

      Delete
    7. Anonymous16/9/14 13:19

      National associations apply for visa, not referees themselves. This cannot be a real cause for a change in appointments done 3 days before the match. It must be something else.

      Delete
    8. Upon our request, UEFA's media department did not want to communicate the reasons of the change (I did not expect anything else tbh).

      Delete
    9. It is not true. I am referee at 5th level and I was once appointed with FIFA AR from my town. He was appointed on U-17 qf tournament in Russia. I helped him with his papers for visa. National association had nothing with it.

      Delete
    10. It should depend on the respective national association. I also heard once that the general secretary or kind of supervisor of the referee department organized it for the referees, but maybe others ask their referees to do it themselves.

      I'm going to talk about what I know.
      Last year, in France, a sanction was taken against Nicolas Danos (Clément Turpin's assistant referee) who had to travel to Russia (Krasnodar). It's obvious that here in France, referees themselves have to prepare their travel, including all the documents needed.

      See communiqué :
      "The CFA,
      after reviewing the documents, including emails from the Technical Refereeing Department of August 13 regarding the procedure for obtaining Russian visas,
      After hearing Nicolas Danos by conference call in his explanations,
      Given the neglect observed in this case not to have sent the passport but simply copying it,
      Considering the consequences of this administrative failure that could have prevented the visa without the intervention of diplomatic authorities, nevertheless that Nicolas Danos tried to limit the effect by providing immediate passport on the first flight and the movement of the french referee quartet finally took place normally
      Having regard to Article 39 section 6 of the refereeing Statute, decided unanimously to deprive Mr. Nicolas Danos of any appointment for a period of 15 days from September 3, 2013 at 0:00. "

    12. Anonymous16/9/14 15:06

      Or it could just be that Mazic has a cold or something similar and did not feel fit for the match - what I mean is that there could be perfectly natural reasons for the quick swap of refereeing team. It has happened before and surely will happen again.

      /Swedish observer

    13. Anonymous16/9/14 16:14

      The referees have to submit their passports, but the national associations obtain the actual visas on their behalf. There may be exceptions in some countries, but that is the normal procedure.
      In Danos's case, he did not submit his passport, so the CFA was delayed in obtaining the visa on his behalf..

      Delete
    14. The visa issue is confirmed as the reason for Team Mazic's absence. Media is reporting it as well.

    When is FIFA gping to decide whether the age limit will be abolished or not? For 2015, are national associations allowed to nominate referees older than 45 to the FIFA List?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The decision has already been made and is more or less public. National associations are never allowed to nominate new FIFA referees over the age of 38. Presumably the associations have already been informed that 1969-born referees will be allowed to continue on the List (I don't expect 1968-borns to return to service...).

      Delete
    2. Anonymous17/9/14 15:39

      Are you sure that 1969-born refs (e.g. Stark, Lannoy) are officially allowed to continue in 2015? If that is the case, Stark will compete for Euro 2016?

      Delete
  9. Anonymous17/9/14 13:52

    The next FIFA Ref Com meeting is scheduled for the end of November. If a decision will be made that late, how would national associations know if they can keep on the list referees older than 45? There must be some guidelines. Niclas/Carlos, do you have more information?

      Usually, the deadline for FIFA nominations was 15 September. This year is the first time when hasnot published its annual circular on their web site. Does that mean the deadline was pushed forward until an official decision regarding the age will be taken?

  12. Very interesting situation in Napoli - Sprarta Praha with Blom whistling a penalty for deliberate handball on a shot on goal. He gave YC and I think that this decision was correct, nerverthelessi there is room for discussion for a possible DOGSO.

  13. According to German sources, Kruzliak initially awarded a handball penalty for M'gladbach in stoppage time (supported by AR), but changed his mind after talking to the AAR. The same sources claim that it was wrong.

      See from 2:04... IMO Kruzilak is right in not awarding penalty becauce ball touches from the ground against a hand which is in a natural position for the players movement...

    2. In my opinion, never penalty in such situation. Very good that Kruzliak changed idea, but here original crucial mistake for AR2...

      Delete
    3. Thanks for the video, looks like no penalty was o.k.

      Delete
    4. I'm pretty sure, AAR2 told Kruzliak to let the play on. At the end of the youtube-video we can see Kruzliak talking, in the original stream one could even see him almost whisteling until somebody via headset told him not to do. And that was very good.

  14. Metalist - Trabzonspor game around 38th minute, Metalist #14 deliberately fouled Trabzonspor's #28, away from ball action area, but in front of Hagen's eyes, no fouled call. In my opinion minimum yellow card, more red card. If I can find I will post video.

  22. For the position I mentioned in my previous post (copied below) I found the video:

    "Metalist - Trabzonspor game around 38th minute, Metalist #14 deliberately fouled Trabzonspor's #28, away from ball action area, but in front of Hagen's eyes, no fouled call. In my opinion minimum yellow card, more red card. If I can find I will post video."

    Here is the video.

    1. I think that YC could be enough for that, I don't understand why Hagen missed the foul, even though he was looking there.

    2. Chefren, what would be your decision if #14 punched #28?

    3. Of course, in this case Red Card for violent conduct.

    4. In my opinion this is a violent conduct using the body. It is not a collision. That's why it seems more red card than yellow card.
      Other than this position I found Hagen generally ok. AR2 missed an offside 37th minute but very good onside call on 90+4 on Trabzonspor's winning goal...

  25. Both 2nd YCs by Evans (Apollon - Zürich) were correct.

    1. 1. Well spotted deliberate handball. Move toward the ball after deflection.
      2. One can whistle, one can wave it away. 50/50
      3. Quite harsh.
      4. Clear penalty.
      5. Excellent dive. Wrongly positioned referee, too centrally.
      6. Extremely difficult situation. The decision should be taken by assistant referee. It looks like wrongly allowed goal.
      7. Yeah, the foul occured outside the penalty area.
      8. Difficult. After watching replays, penalty should've been given.

      Thanks!

    2. I believe 6 should have been disallowed because the goalkeeper has possession of the ball if he has 1 hand on it on the top and it is touching the ground.

  29. Clattenburg today in Leicester - Manchester United:

    1)
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x26d5qm_david-nugent-goal-2-3-leicester-city-vs-manchester-united-2014-09-21_sport
    No foul by #9 MNU on #2 LEI? Then, foul and penalty by #2 LEI on #9 MNU. I think that the first challenge was surely more foul than the second one.

    RC for DOGSO. Correct decision?

    1. 1) Foul for defense can be called. No PK.

      2) For me, no foul for defense. Correct decision by Clattenburg: PK/RC.

      Delete
    2. #1 can be discuted, although the penalty itself is very clear. For me, there is clear contact in the back.

      #2 is crystal clear, and I agree with the red for DOGSO. The Leicester forward is entering the penalty area and has a clear chance to shoot at the goal.

      By the way, let me mention the very respectful comments by Louis Van Gaal; I like this type of comments by coaches, and appreciate how he did not shift all the blame to Clattenburg:
      “For the first penalty it is always the referee [who you talk about] but you don’t have to do that as a player. You know you are in the penalty area and you allow the referee to whistle if you make a challenge. I don’t know if it is a penalty but we have to look at ourselves because we made such big errors as a team.”

    3. We all know what Sir Alex would have done if he were still the manager...

      1) definitely a foul on Rafael, to then allow play to continue and whistle a penalty for soft coming together between Rafael and Vardy a mere seconds later is baffling IMO. Clatts had poor foul detection all afternoon to be honest.

      2) I agree with Nikitas, I felt there was a foul on Blackett in the build-up. No complaints on the penalty awarded, red card for the defender had to then follow.

  30. 1) I absolutely agree with you. The penalty decision was a joke. You can't even whistle it as a foul outside the penalty area.
    The first challenge was more foul than the second one.

    2) I think there was a foul before this penalty call. About the penalty (since the foul was not given) I suppose that the attacker was a bit too on the sideline. The criteria for a DOGSO and a RC weren't fulfilled. It may be an acceptable decision nevertheless.

    1. 1) Penalty kick
      2) No foul, I think. Unfortunate situation.
      3) Penalty kick.

      Very good examples, 2) and 3) in contrast. Thanks...

    2. 1) I like the call. Dark red player approached the white player and it was typical clash without using hands. The free kick could've been even awarded to white team.

      2) I always think that GK shouldn't be privileged and does whatever he wants to do, even if he sees an opponent in front of him. What does the referee should do if a normal' player acted like that? Red card. LoTG are equal to all players and the GK should've been red-carded for endangering the safety of an opponent.

      3) Reckless play - penalty + yellow card.
