    Is Michel Piraux UEFA Delegate AND Referee Observer? He observed Lechner this year, now he is Delegate in Bucharest.

    1. I think he was/still is. I seem to remember both Charles Schaack and Karl-Erik Nilsson being referee observers, now they are both delegates.

      Delete
    2. The observer for Oliver is Michel Piraux. That was a typo mistake.

      Delete
  3. Very interesting appointment for Kevin Blom. After Napoli-Sparta Praha once again an important and crucial game for him. Seems like UEFA has some trust in him again? It surprises me that both the 5th and the 6th official are not-internationals.

    ReplyDelete
  4. What surprises me a bit is the observer for Gräfe. Zdravko Jokic is pretty important. So maybe they plan some bigger K.O. stage matches for the German.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe Aytekin was planned for this match.
      Gräfe should not be a candidate for promotion anymore without CL matches this season. And I don't think, he deserves an early demotion, particularly as no German second category referee seems to be an obvious choice for promotion.

    2. Manuel Gräfe is one excellent referee,
      enough maltreated by UEFA.

    Some interesting things:

    Ozkahya the only referee with 4 matches in EL groupstage. Aytekin and Makkelie no match because of their injuries. But why no match for Sidiropoulos ?

    Important matches for Blom, Grafe and Stavrev. What are the plans with this three referees? Strange thing is the not so important matches for Vad and Gil.

    No matches this round for Yildrim, Kaaseik, Hansson, Gomes and Aydunis. McLean without a match since his horror performance in Italy.

    ReplyDelete
  7. It is a small miracle that Kaasik is (still?) in First Group. No UEL match for 2 years and no international match in 2014. I guess UEFA will switch him with Tohver next week.

    Stavrev's match is not that important in my eyes. Even a 2nd group official could have gone there. Probably Sidiropoulos is out to "protect" him after his mistake in Manchester?

    1. We will never understand they way they think in Uefa...You can only get iformation from your PR with the same referees.And i know you speak with a lot of them.So you can share the info with us...Thats really good.Kaasik is out as you already know due to serious health problems(back pain and 2 surgeries so far),so thats why he is out.
      I guess the Greek referee contacted you that info (as i know he usually does)to inform you about his absense and to protect him too...So you know the news for him.
      As for Stavrev he is really struggling to keep up,lets see what happens...

      Delete
    2. Well no, I am not in contact with any of the officials you mentioned. It was a (logical?) assumption. Thanks for sharing the info about Kaasik.

      Delete
    3. Ok Niclas!The important is to have the info.And of course not reveal your contacts :)
      I am sure though that the Greek referee has contacted you more than once sharing info ,photos etc.You do not have to admit it though! :)
      And if it was a logical assumption as you say,why he was in your recent predictions for MD6? :) i am a journalist too,and i know how it works!!!!
      And that is the success of your blog!Keep up the good work

      Delete
    4. This is incorrect, you should improve your research strategies. We have access to respective databases and do NOT depend on referees breaking confidentiality. What kind of Info photos you mean? Logical, because after appointments we are always wiser. I speculated that they would give him a chance to correct the performance in mancity, but obviously UEFA proceeded differently. As he does not seem to be injured, a protection break can be presumed. Additionally you apparently are not familiar with the UEFA routine and are not aware of the danger of your claim. For the referee concerned, I mean. So apparently you only know how it works in tabloid press. Regards.

      Delete
    5. Apparently i am not so experienced like you are in "database",but definitely i can get wiser by continue reading and learning...Thanks and regards!

    6. just a small reminding tip...Plzen-Shaktar....

    7. tabloid

      Can you tell me what your last comment is supposed to mean?

      Delete
    8. Hi Edward,
      just a small demonstration of my previous words to Niclas.
      And if i may ask why are you intrested?

      Delete
    9. It is amazing. Someone who is that convinced of knowing something can't be convinced, that's why I don't even try it. As a typical tabloid journalist (what is your name, for which organization are you publishing?) you seem to tend to simplify complex things.

      "I am sure though that the Greek referee has contacted you more than once sharing info ,photos etc.You do not have to admit it though! :)" - that is simply wrong. Not more and not less. But your sentence is great. You only can be right. If I admit sth which is not true, you are the winner, if I refuse it, you are the winner, too, because I don't have to admit it. Well...maybe you indeed are a journalist.

      In Plzen-Shakhtar, somebody leaked the appointment more than 7 days before the match on the blog. After a skype discussion, we (Chefren, Edward and me) decided to delete this appointment and place a declaration on revealing confidential referee appointments a day later as this might cause problems we don't want to create. So - where the hell is your problem?

      I ensure you one thing: you know nothing. You don't know our sources, our strategy, how we operate, whom we reach - nothing. Accept that.

      As a lawyer I recommend the administrators to stay cool. If 'tabloid' doesn't have evidence for what he says, he could in theory easily be sued for public defamation (I guess this blog as most html-based sites has a IP track system).

      Delete
    11. For tabloid.

      In Plzen - Shakhtar the appointment was leaked 1 week before the match. Do you think that we should be ok with this and let the appointment on this blog?

      It's common sense.

      Delete
    12. Ok guys i am not accusing you of something here!!Relax!You are not doing something wrong in my opinion.I dont know if you all are journalists,but i always try to find the best connections.So no need to argue...I am just saying my opinion here,in an open blog conversation.If you think i should not do it,please let me know.And my anonymous friend lawyer,thanks for the legal advice!

      Delete
    13. I can't relax if you wrongly accuse a FIFA referee of breaking confidentiality by sharing information with us based on no grounds. You did not give your opinion, you claimed you would know something for sure. That's a marginal difference. So yes, I think you should not do it.

      Delete

    Im sorry; i meant Gocek; important match for him. Thats why i asked the question what are the plans; they all get decisive matches and three former ED referees ( Stavrev; Strahonja and Vad ) with relative easy (Compared to others) matches.

    What is the case with Texeira Vitienes? I thought he wasn't FIFA referee anymore; a farewell match?

      Niclas, could you let us know what is this all about?

      Delete
    3. It concerns Zwayer's involvement in the Hoyzer case some years ago. He was one of the officials (at that time as assistant referee) who was offered money (300€) by Hoyzer to fix matches.
      He first accepted it but informed DFB later on. He was kind of key witness. As he accepted the 300 € for a certain match and informed DFB quite late, they decided to suspend him for half a year. As he was already out of officiating due to the legal process for quite a long time, he was however allowed to step on the pitch again.
      It now seems as if DFB ruled him guilty of accepting bribes and behaving in an unsporting manner back then (a detail which was not known to public so far). Nonetheless there were no real consequences and you can see where Zwayer is now: at the top, Germany's best referee of the year 2013/14. So the article also focuses on the question of whether someone who has been ruled to behave in an unsporting manner should belong to the Elite of German (and European?) officiating.

      Delete
    4. Dubious conduct of Zwayer.

  14. Clear offside missed on Celtic's 1-1.

  15. Bezborodov with 2 red cards for DOGSO. They were both correct.

  16. Qarabag robbed of advancement, offside called incorrectly only with a few seconds left.

  17. Offside decision at last minute goal at Qarabag - Inter game seems to be wrong. That took chances of Qarabag qualifying to next round.

    This is the offside. I can't explain the call, it seems also quite delayed. More than a crucial mistake by AR1 Pelikan.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The ref should've told the AR that the player wasn't involved even if he stood in a offside position.

      Delete
    2. Is there a chance for offside position during center pass from left wing? Video quality is rather poor, but during center pass it looks very close.

    1. Huge mistake at the end of the game by AAR (penalty call against LOSC). No handball... Ozkahya didn't want to whistle it but he changed his mind...

      Delete
    2. I have to disagree here. This is the perfect example for denying a shot on goal with illegal use of the arm. The defender made a clear movement towards the ball and also remember there is no such "protection by hand". In my opinion correct call, the delay was the result of communication via micro.

      Delete
    3. I had the impression, that AR1 made the call, referee and AAR seemed to watch the centre of the box and not the wall.

      Delete
    4. You are probably right here, Philipp. That's what I suggest as well.

      Delete
  23. Wrong offside call on 64th minute for AR2 at Legia-Trabzonspor game. He Disallowed Trabzonspor's goal. Huge mistake. Same AR2 signaled wrong offside for Legia in first half. Generally very poor performance for AR2 and poor match till now for Ken Hansen. Poor foul detection...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Agree, it was an unbelievable, scandalous mistake by David Vang Andersen! I don't remember something similar...

      Kenn Hansen was very uncertain all the game. Almost every single decision was taken with a delay, after talk with assistant. Some fouls missed. Two big penalty-appeals: 8' - Ekici vs Duda (one can whistle a penalty, but I think Duda fell too easily), 53' - Kuciak vs Yatabaré (should have been a clear penalty and red card for SFP against Kuciak!!!). Missed knee-attack in the first half... Just very poor performance by Hansen and Andersen...

    1. I have now watched the scenes from WAR-TRA time and time again and want to put some things right. My opinion is most certainly not mandatory correct by all means but I feel that the referee is put in a wrong light by the comments above.
      1) I agree with the decision taken by Hansen and his AAR2, the offence not worth of a penalty, #8 WAR falls to ground quite stagily.
      2) I want to back the referee here as well. YC is enough I think as #38 TRA did not use his arm as a weapon nor did he hit his opponent with excessive force. Reckless use of the arm, correctly issued booking. Hansen also separated the player in a good way.
      3) a) Same level - offside flag by AR1 is wrong here; b) no offside - wrong offside call by AR2; c) 3 meters no offside, crucial mistake AR2. All three offsides were unfortunately misjudged by the assistants.
      4) Again, I agree with Hansen. The striker played the ball and collided with the goalkeeper a tenth of a second later. No foul in my opinion. Especially, I cannot see the SFP which you claim that has occurred here. The fact that the player suffered from an injury is not the criteria to detect SFP.
      5) 1 YC for #5 TRA absolutely justified in my eyes. Reckless tackle with raised feet on his opponents foot. The offence that led to the second Yellow is comparable to the first. The ball is played and seconds later he treads on his opponents' foot. Correct 2nd YC I think.

      I have not seen the entire 90 minutes but these scenes only reveal a key weakness in getting offside calls right. Especially AR2 disappointed here. I want to back Hansen in all of the decision he took which are shown in the clips. Feel free to share your opinions.

    2. While I agree with almost everything you've said, I strongly disagree on 4.

      See the screenshots:

      Kuciak is very late with his tackle and attacks Yatabaré with straigtened leg, with studs up and with the leg significantly above the ground, He is guilty of creating a contact (studs vs shin) and tearing of his opponent's leg skin. It's really obvious using excessive force and endangering the safety of an opponent for me, therefore SFP in my eyes.

    3. I agree with you, Hubert, at least in theory. Watching specially the last 2 replay angles it is SFP for me as well. Practically, such things are rarely whistled, which is problematic. In the concrete case, only one official had the chance to spot it: AAR2. Hansen's line of sight was fully obstructed by the player fouled (0° visual angle).
      As for AR2, I hope that the disallowed goal was due to the other 2 players, who maybe - in his view - were involved in active play. But I can hardly think so. I think his main error was one moment of missing concentration. You can see that when the ball was cleared by the white-dressed players, he did not move with sidesteps anymore but ran on the sideline with his face turned to play, and not to the 2nd-last-defender-line. So this lack of alertness probably resulted in this mistake. When he moved his head to the 2nd-last-defender-line, he had no chance to grasp that the attacker was 3m onside, as he was already offside. So very likely a relatively huge mistake, but which can be easily explained.

    4. The "Penalty&Red card" missed by Hansen is a misfortune. When you watch the clip then it happens so fast and in such an angle that the referee cannot see it and it seems that the AAR2 view is blocked by a defender.

      One should feel for the referees and the observer could support their decision. You have to spot this to give a penalty.

    5. @ Hubert: After studying the screenshots, I think you are right. In theory this can indeed be considered as SFP and my first impression was wrong here. But I also understand Niclas, practically this is almost impossible to detect for the referee and his AAR2. Tricky situation but in theory I have to agree with you, Hubert! My bad...

    6. Thanks for replies. I agree it was very difficult to be spotted though!

    7. Please take a look at this. When #5 received his second yellow card, #68 goes to the referee and starts protesting. Now, what happens next just shocked me. The referee just pushes #68 away. I don't know but this is just unacceptable. No referee and and also no player is allowed to push someone away. I am actually more shocked that the player didn't do anything after that. You know about what will happen when this was Ibrahimovic or Ronaldo. This referee should really think about his actions because this is not how a referee should act.

      See it for yourself:

  28. Bezborodov with 2 absolutely correct DOGSO decisions in Kobenhavn yesterday.

    About Özkahya, I agree with Maxi and Philipp, correct penalty + YC by Özkahya and definitely suggested by AR1.
