      Scene 1: I would go for penalty kick.

      Two mistakes by AR1.
      Correct red card for DOGSO.

    1. Ondrej Duda (LEG) hit by a stone. Walk-over probable. But remember Aytekin and Russian goalkeeper...

      In Montenegro, a player was hit by fans. Where is the difference?

    4. There, after a 35-minute delay German referee Deniz Aytekin restarted the match. Fortunately, Klossner and delegate in Albania were wiser.

      Of course I agree with this decision, but not with the Montenegro-Russia one.
      UEFA should be more consistent, when a player is hit at any rate, match must be suspended.

    6. some scenes from Tirana:

    7. That's the problem. These decisions are taken by the delegates and officers off the field (a no-go actually). So there has to be more consistency and it would be very easy to reach...a circular to all delegates would do. But maybe the show "Montenegro-Russia" was too big and had to go on literally. Kukesi-Legia, well...nice UEL game, but nothing more, no big audience across Europe. I don't have another explanation.

      well done.

      unfortunately referee massa was not that good. he did not protect the dortmund players, missed at least one YC for a reckless tackle, another YC (spa?) was ununderstandable. furthermore some leaks in his positioning, especially at goal kicks... i have never seen a positioning like that before and i cannot understand...

      furthermore he dropped down his arm at every indirect free kick too early, before a player touched the ball. once, at an indirect free kick short before the opponent's goal that was really dangerous, the host's shot nearly a goal from this indirect free kick he did not signal until the end.

      8,1 for me for massa.

    In my opinion, this is a dive. Unfortunately, referee Clancy decided for penalty and red card.

    1. Maybe unpopular view, but please note that the red player avoids contact by drawing his leg back. The sliding tackle is reckless in its nature, it is definitely not OGSO, so I would go for a penalty kick and yellow card for 'reckless attempt to kick an opponent'.

      Delete
    2. Anonymous31/7/15 00:33

      Some unpopular opinions can be correct but Yours is certainly not. Either dive, indirect freekick an YC for the attacker or DOGSO, PK and RC for goalkeeper. Intensity of the offence (if any) is in this situation irrelevant.

    4. Complex situation, difficult for sure.
      In my view the goalkeeper tries to shoot the ball, the movement with his foot/leg is not reckless for me, but, as said, simply an attempt to clear the ball that way (but he comes a part of a second too late and misses the ball).
      I do not see any contact, a normally approaching goalkeeper who risks much, but does not behave unfairly (of course, if you think it was reckless play then you can't share this view). So: dive, idfk, yellow. But too difficult on the pitch.

      Delete
    5. Anonymous31/7/15 13:01

      In my opinion there was a contact, but even if there was no contact - this is not a dive. Everybody who played football in his life would fall in such a situation, if your opponent attacks you in the way the gk did it. but as i already said: i think there was a contact. -> penalty + yc

      Delete
    6. Falling is one thing, making the "dying swan" is another thing.
      Apart from my video-impression: On the field, penalty + RC is the safest and maybe most correct option.

    2. At first glance, UEFA confirmed 1 crucial mistake by Thomson in LUD-REA (the given penalty at min. 22'). Moreover a penalty was missed at BATE-Shakhtar and was incorrectly given to NED-KAZ.

      Thanks Edward, but I have to agree with Niclas, also problems here... Downloading succeeds without difficulties, but upon starting any of the topics the Severity of Offence section opens and not the topic chosen.

      What is the average time of downloading this file...? I started yesterday around 11:00 PM, and until now, it is still not finished (every 5 seconds it starts damaging)...

    7. I need 75 minutes for the download, but same here, severity of offence opens and I cannot click everything. Edward's download file was bigger, so very likely labhipermedia or UEFA changed the file.

    Edward please make a list with all situations and referees involved, it would be very nice and kind!

  10. I invite you to try now!
    The file is again 7.4 GB now and finally my download worked.
    One situation among others: Jug missed a SFP in Atletico Madrid - Malmoe.
    Indeed, we assigned a crucial mistake for that.
