  1. It seems as Equatorial Guinea made complaints against CAF regarding the disallowed goal in MD1 (AR2 crucial mistake).
    They needed "experts" in order to understand that it was a offside mistake... in my opinion, these speculations are unacceptable.

    1. First impressions.
      Hagen apparently with a 7.4 in front of Collina in Sociedad-Leverkusen, furthermore UEFA deemed Velasco's sending-off against Schweinsteiger in Manchester as incorrect and a 2nd YC for Valencia missing. You probably remember the situations.
      Webb's missing RC for Tevez is confirmed as well. Also Eriksson's missing RC for DOGSO in Bayern-ManU. But find it out yourself, a sample of good videos this time.

      I think it is not final version. I found already three mistakes in the clips. And no considerations attached.

  4. Alioum mediocre, as the whole match.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Okayish performance by Victor Gomes, mostly not challenged. Still some errors, including an interesting penalty area Ssene (90'+2).

    1. We have to wait for CAF. It's not our fault if they don't publish the appointments.

    4. I think Atkinson deserves a CL match tbh - performed better than Clatts in the Group Stages imo...

      Delete
    5. Basically it does, but Aytekin and Basel is no good idea after Ludogorets IMO.

  10. Interesting handball case in ZAM - TUN right now (3' in first half).
    I think that a penalty was possible here.

  12. Group D :
    Bamlak Tessema Weyesa (Ethiopia) for Cameroon vs Guinea & Bouchaib El Ahrach (Morocco) fir Cote d'Ivoire vs Mali

  13. Two-footed lunge by Acquah, Coulibaly only cautions him after a second yellow-worthy foul.....

    ReplyDelete
  14. Most excessive use of whistle I've ever seen (or better: heard). BTW not a good way to calm people down.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Colulibaly is too passive.

    ReplyDelete

    This is how it works Coulibaly in their matches, do not understand the amazement, should know this when proposing to view the match.

    1. If you are trying to say that this is Coulibaly-style and we should not be surprised: There are some basic rules, whatever style.

      Delete
    2. Anonymous23/1/15 17:58

      Well, if the CAF keeps giving games for him, even knowing your style, I believe that this is not being taken into account by them. Actually surprised me when he was chosen instead of Mahamadou Keita, which seems very promising.

      Delete
  17. Coulibaly seems a good father, a very particular style, he doesn't want to hurt players.

  19. Excellent decision by El Ahrach a few minutes ago. Indirect free kick whistled for a backpass to keeper by head after having deliberately raised the ball.
    Even players don't know this rule.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But it has to be a yellow card:
      "There are different circumstances when a player must be cautioned for
      unsporting behaviour, e.g. if a player ...
      ...uses a deliberate trick while the ball is in play to pass the ball to his own
      goalkeeper with his head, chest, knee, etc. in order to circumvent the Law,
      irrespective of whether the goalkeeper touches the ball with his hands or
      not. The offence is committed by the player in attempting to circumvent
      both the letter and the spirit of Law 12 and play is restarted with an indirect free kick"

      Missed penalty for CIV in 33' ?

      Unusual situation, but for me it's a penalty.
      Furthermore El Ahrach had problems with control. Many conflicts between players and discussions with the referee.

  21. Good and promising impression by Tessema. But for me missed penalty and red for DOGSO in 90+2. Poor fitness level at the end so that he was too far away in that situation.
