  1. Very brave and correct Penalty for Canada for an elbow by K Monzul in additional time. Defender unfairly uses her arm against the opponent

    1. Ditto. Very good decision. The arm was raised into the jaw of the attacker, definitely correct for me.

    2. Good decision for sure!

    3. I agree, good call by Kateryna Monzul, reasonable penalty.

      If you're a referee and you agree with that scandalous call. You need to have you're ref license pulled. The Canada player clearly runs into the extended arm of the Chinese player and goes down way too easily.. The defender has the right to challenge for that ball. If you disagree, then you're an imbecile and you can't be helped. Continue being a sub par referee.

    1. Very tricky to assess. There isn't a "direct touch" (if you understand what I man) on the opponent, but one must say that the ball was never touched. I think that this challenge was really risky and a penalty could have been whistled.

    3. From the live camera, it looked too soft. But from the replay, specially from behind (argument in favour of diagonal channel movement) it looks like a clear penalty. I guess if Alvarado had had another angle, she would have pointed to the spot.

      On Monzul, good call, but I don't know whether she would have been blamed that much if she had let play go on.

      We have to distinguish if it was a strike or whether Canada player ran onto this outstretched hand. And we can debate what should be the referee's call in the second case.

    Just a note on the text - I don't think that Monzul refereed the 2013 EURO final in Sweden. In my recollection the final was refereed by a Romanian referee (originally selected only to be a fourth official in the tournament...).

      Correct. Monzul refereed the semifinal between Norway and Denmark.

  5. Small info from Germany: it seems as if Benjamin Brand has been promoted to Bundesliga from next season on (1989 born). You might remember him from the offside clip in Dortmund-Hoffenheim 2 years ago or the teamwork post with Aytekin from last year.

      Where did you get this info? And do you know perhaps if he is the only one to be promoted or are ther moer, since Kinhöfer, Meyer and Gagelmann retire?

      Delete
    2. Sources. Meyer has not retired. He is born in November, while Kinhöfer and Gagelmann were born in June. I do not know whether anybody else has been promoted. I expected Robert Kempter. Let's wait for the official confirmation.

    Studer is reported as referee for friendly Portugal - Italy in Geneva on 16/06. Strange, because a few months ago he announced his retirement from international refereeing.

    Turpin confirmed as number one, Buquet runner up. Castro and Thual relegated.
    Hamel, Jochem, Ben El Hadj and Miguelgorry promoted in Ligue 1.
    Stéphanie Frappart very lucky to stay still in Ligue 2.

  8. Friendly match 10.06.2015 Germany - USA will be officiated by Dutchman Danny Makkelie, whilst his fellow countrymen Mario Diks and Hessel Steegstra will support him on the touchline. Kevin Blom will be the fourth official.

    What is wrong with Strahonja in France - Belgium. 2 missed (very clear) red cards and 1 offside goal in first 45 minutes.

  10. Some more videos from Norway. A very poor performance in this 1st division match, no control and several wrong decisions.

    1. 1. Referee body language in first video inspires no confidence.
      2. I'm OK with advantage and Caution (high speed but low challenge) based long-distance view. Some indication that a Caution is coming would prevent bad optics of player from trying to escape to get drink.
      3. Holding (later Cautioned), advantage, hard but fair looking challenge in PA.
      4. Advantage to white? Really? For what? I saw a reckless arm given by white.
      5. ?
      6. Advantage fine. Needs to come back for Caution (reckless).
      7. First foul fine. Black player is angry with decision and referee allows quick restart. Black player disagreed with referee and decides to take matters into own hands. Should have been Sent Off. Prevent by slowing down game.

      This match displays typical lower league soccer. Lower skill compensated for by brutality and a referee who sends poor messages by giving advantage (just stop the play every foul -- forget advantage), allowing quick restarts when players are frustrated, and not showing authoritative body language. At very least, referee needs to go home and practice taking out his cards and book of all things.

      The referee must work on his personality and body-language. Poor performance as for the second tier...

      Absolutely bad refereeing - no personality, inconfident body language, absolutely unbelievable advantages given (3 (particularly) and 4), not even a free kick given for the clear SFP in clip 5, clear missed (2nd) YC for white 3 in clip 6, and poor management and possibly another missed SFP in clip 7. Based on the clips, the referee does not deserve a tenth of a point more than 6.6.

  11. Strahonja gave also two ridiculous penalty kicks. And this together with the two missed red cards it's an unacceptable performance.

      I saw only Tremoulinas foul and penalty to France. Tremoulinas should've been off, but I can accept the penalty to France (players pulled each other, but the pull of Belgian made an opponent fall). What is the minute for the second red card missed?

  12. Difficult decision for Carol Ann Chenard (Germany v Ivory Coast). Score already 4-0. Was Ivory Coast keeper guilty of DOGSO or SPA for foul outside PA? I couldn't quite tell if attacker would have been able to get to heavily played ball had foul not been committed.

      Too many doubts to issue a red card with 4-0 on the scoreboard. Very likely there would be a fight for the ball between two players, so no DOGSO for me. Chenard missed a clear penalty (and very likely red card for DOGSO) in the additional time to the second half, though... Lack of alertness due to result, a gift to Cote d'Ivoire due to result? It's also difficult to observer how to classify this mistake. 10-0 on the scoreboard, so it has no impact on the score, but still a clear mistake.

    2. I left match to do my own just prior to this and just watched replay. Either an error (technical decision) or simply a decision not to bother adding insult to injury (practical decision). Let's put it this way. In blow-outs I have "been in the wrong position" or "had two players run into my viewing angle at the wrong moment" to "see" whether player got ball or not. I frankly find these types of matches much more difficult to officiate than challenging ones (with a variety of difficult decisions) in which teams are evenly balanced.

      The score in a match does not mean that the Laws of the Game stop to exist or are no applied. Sorry excuse by those of you who are using the score as an excuse. Do us all a favor and turn in your license. You are not fit to officiate matches.

    2. Appointments for EURO 2016 qualifying matches are released three days (not two) before the date, so tomorrow in the morning we will have the referees for Friday's matches, and so on.
      I really don't know about Copa America.

    Incredibile penalty missed by Chenard at 93'. It seems as she didn't want to give it, score was 10-0. But if she really missed the contact, this is a worrying mistake.
