    Big game for Orsato. A pity he is not in elite instead of Tagliavento.

    Strange to see Bebek name in this stage of competitions after such a bad performance in the BATE-Shakhtar game. Nonetheless this guy has a great potential.

  3. For me the most unexpected name is De Sousa. I think it's the first time he reaches this stage of the competition.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think it's both based on very solid performances over the last years and on Proenca's and Benquerenca's retirements. It might be an attempt to give the Portuguese FA some presence in terms of refereeing in the decisive stages of the competition, and also gives Bertino Miranda, who is surely belonging to the top 5 ARs in Europe, match praxis on international level.

      Dear Niclas, which ARs belong to your personal top 5, if I am free to ask you?

      Delete
    3. Well it is difficult to say that, speaking about a top5 is therefore stupid..
      The most successful referees are also successful due to their assistant referees (e.g. the Swedish, Turkish, former Italian, Dutch, English ones).

  4. Sergei Karasev is still out, I think that the mistakes he made in CL group stage were evaluated as serious by committee.

    1. I guess, but then in turn, why does the committee put so much trust in other referees who made (severe mistakes) as well in recent times, i.e. Velasco Carballo or Bebek? But, of course, you never know what is happening "backstage" behind the scenes...

    1. About Kassai, his last appointment in domestic league was on 30/11/14.
      Starting from that date, he is still out from Hungarian Major League.
      Two matchdays have been played after the winter break (18 and 19). Appointments for MD 20 are released and he is still out.
      Therefore, very likely he is injured.
      I expect in the last 4 CL matches: Rizzoli, Rocchi, Mazic and perhaps Moen.

      Serbian Domestic league began recently on 21. February. Before that Mazic and his team were not on the ground of Rome (Roma vs. City). In the first three rounds Mazic was excellent refereed three matches and as a curiosity in all three rounds was the team at UEFA/FIFA competitions Mazic/ Ristic/Djurdjevic.

    3. After this bombardment of hostile questions let me answer you one question:

      "Why not Tagliavento in Monaco?"
      Because there is an Italian observer in Monaco.

    5. Portugal (5), France (6), Russia (7), Ukraine (8), Belgium (10), Switzerland (11), Greece (13), Romania (15) don't have an Elite referee.
      On the other hand countries like Hungary (31), Slovenia (28), Serbia (27), Norway (26), Sweden (24), Scotland (23) have an Elite referee (even two in case of Scotland).
      It's fair? I think not.

      Also I don't think it's fair that Spain has four Elite referees. None of them are top 10 material in Europe...

      Delete
    6. Anonymous11/3/15 18:04

      Being a top referee and therefore an Elite referee in UEFA doesn't belong to nationality.

      Delete
    7. I think that this approach suffers from a fundamental fallacy and that is to believe that the quality of a league (represented by a few top clubs) is equivalent to the quality of refereeing in the same country.

      Example:
      Switzerland's top clubs Basel, Young Boys and FC Zürich have collected some points and therefore Switzerland is ranked 11th. But prior to Meier's and specially Busacca's retirement, the Suisse refereeing department has apparently not invested enough energy to manage new talents and prepare them for a potential Elite nomination. So, is it fair that Switzerland does not have an Elite referee although their league / FA is ranked no.11 in Europe? Of course it is. It would be unfair to demand the opposite.

      Steaua's frequent participations in UCL do not mean that Hategan has to be an Elite referee. It's as simple as that IMO.

      Delete
    8. I thought that we all agree the level of domestic league it's an important factor in development and value of a referee.
      For this reason the biggest football leagues is Europe (like England, Italy, Spain, Germany) have (or had) 3 Elite referees (or even four in case of Spain).

      P.S: of course, in last 27 years, all the referees from Romania were idiots...Since 1988 Romania didn't have a referee at a final tournament (EURO or WC), last one being Ioan Igna (Euro 1988).
      In this period of time almost all the countries from Europe (even new ones like Belarus or Slovenia) had at least one referee at a final tournament. For this reason we can compare Romania with Malta, Cyprus, Luxemburg etc.

      Delete
    9. It's ONE factor which may help referees to gather experience in big stadiums, in matches with high pace football and more pressure than in smaller leagues. But it's not THE factor in my opinion. Otherwise Ravshan Irmatov would have never officiated a World Cup probably.

      Delete
    10. My biggest fear with Proenca on the referee's committee is that we will probably see Soares Dias in Elite some day.

      Delete
    11. This will be the case but I am confident that he will be able to transport his good performances from Portugal onto international turf, which he has not managed often so far.

      Delete
    12. Soares Dias problem is the weak emotional control. He is very influenced by what we write and talk about particular match.

    Szymon Marciniak with another not so demanding game... Spot-on with cards, three cases of well played advantage. Two controversies but impossible to say something about them. The 0-1 goal - we don't know who played the ball and whether Inter player was in an offside position at the moment of alleged pass. The replay in the 18th minute of the game gives us a hint the players could be level because one of the Wolfsburg player was late in running back. Another situation in the 45+2nd minute - Wolfsburg player protests to AAR2 Tomasz Musiał, I don't know what was the problem...

  22. Very good co-operation in the 1:2 goal by Orsato, Giallatini and Mazzoleni. Very good result obtained by teamwork. Maybe the "how" could be optimized.
    Unfortunately the 0:2 was scored form an offside position missed by AR1.

    Correct 2nd YC by Sidiropoulos close to AR1 and 4th. However it should have been a direct red card. No big matter, but just to have said that, criteria for SFP were fulfilled and the foul type reminded me on Aytekin's RC in Zenit some months ago ruled as correct by UEFA.

    Good performance by Antonio Mateu Lahoz and Spanish team. IMO, prior the penalty-kick for AC Roma, isn't offside excellent decision of AR1 (quite challenging) , good cooperation Lahoz/AAR1 justly awarded a penalty and also the correct disciplinary sanctions- only YC. Few striking style Lahoz, who, to my taste, too much talk with the players. I prefer the Cakir, Eriksson or Mazic's style.Their personality and respect achieve more effective security and calm reaction, and without going into the controversy with the players. Again, excellent fitness, good card policy, good fouls detection, but after a correct decision toys (especially temperamental Italians should be kept at a distance).

    3. I assume they are having trios again this time?

    4. Yes sorry, It is this year!
      All of the UEFA referees at the Algarve Cup got high ranking assistants so it bodes well for them I think.
      But we have nothing to go on as such as how many each confederation is allocated, so it makes it quite hard to make predictions!

    check penalty situation for Napoli.Is YC for SPA?
    The 2nd YC given MUST BE a direct RC.Very dangerous tackle.

      Crucial mistake.

    4. In my opinion neither card was correct. No card in penalty (no SPA imo), and red card instead of 2nd yellow.

    2. Thanks for this info Hubert! So this time AARs from the same country of the main referee, and this is a logical choice. Two years ago there were several communication (and confusion) problems... very good.
      Waiting for the other names.

      My guess would be Karasev, Turpin, Makkelie, Sidiropoulos and one out of Hansen, Liany, Soares Dias, Kulbakov and Zwayer.
