    Taylor is also appointed for FA Community Shield August 1st when Chelsea and Arsenal play for the first title in England. Source: FA

    1. Capital one cup final, FA community shield and the Euro U19 a great year for Taylor

    Taylor is not Clattenburg neither Atkinson.

    1. Your point being? Clattenburg wasn't Webb 5 years ago

    2. And Clatts will never be Webb. Every referee is different in their own way.

    DOGSO or SPA? https://youtu.be/Q3dn33Lgm8I?t=231

    SPA - correct YC.

      It was @ Anonymus / 12:45pm :)

    What about this tackle (9.40). No free-kick given.

    1. Anonymous9/7/15 21:30

      Fair tackle on the ball.

    2. Anonymous9/7/15 22:28

      Yeah, of course... Excessive force, straight red!

  6. IMO Ekberg just missed a blatant and obvious penalty. AR1 had a clear view as well. Bizarre how this could be missed by the officials.

  7. Anonymous9/7/15 21:31

    Minute 28 in Ekberg match I think that he missed a penalty.

  8. Anonymous9/7/15 21:48

    45' Handball by an AUT defender in his own penalty area, in my opinion not deliberate and so on correct to play-on.
    45+1' Missed YC for a reckless tackle by a GRE defender, the referee decided to an advantage (correct) but missed the mandatory caution!
    Final whistle 3'' too early.

  9. Anonymous9/7/15 22:41

    Next crucial mistake, this time by AR2 who disallows an AUT goal due to offside what was no offside unfortunately.

    It is a pity for Austria... No penalty against France, no penalty against Greece, disallowed goal against Greece... two big referee's mistakes in two games...

    all in all not the best tournament of the appointed referees... :-(

    Under 21 was a very good tournament, under 19 not really.

  11. Anonymous9/7/15 22:54

    If Treimanis has not made a crucial mistake as well, all 6 referees appointed have made crucial mistakes in their games. Incredible.

    1. Taylor's crucial mistake?

    2. Anonymous10/7/15 00:16

      Treimanis without crucial mistake (but a really easy game). I didn't watch Taylor's game. Kabakov, Bognar, Guida and Ekberg with mediocre performances.

    3. Anonymous10/7/15 02:03

      Taylor had a good match. No crucial mistake.

      Also I wouldn't be so sure that Ekberg did a crucial mistake.

    4. I have rewatched the 28th minute in Ekberg's game and it was a clear penalty. No collision, but a clear foul.

    5. Anonymous10/7/15 10:22

      Goal for Ukraine was offside. Crucial mistake from AR2.

  12. Anonymous9/7/15 23:03

    The events at this tournament is an example of how "chain reactions" reduce the performance level of referees, Kabakov misses a penalty on the first day, Guida knows this, is afraid of doing the same mistake and gives an incorrect penalty. This is once again seen by Ekberg, who also gets afraid of giving another incorrect penalty, leading to a non-whistle.

  13. Another tournament: Marco Borg handles the semifinal at the university olimpics in Korea between Brazil and Korea.

  14. Kabakov in ESP - RUS missed in my opinion a SFP, evaluating the challenge only as reckless (YC): minute 62'. Moreover, other significant points for improvement, report will be ready soon, but unluckily I think we are in 7.8 area

    1. Anonymous11/7/15 22:01

      Chefren, low intensity of foul makes the yellow card given by Kabakov a reasonable choice. See a tackle from the 79th minute of GER-ESP. Detelin assessed it as a correct call. So, if you want to be consistent, they are both yellow or both red cards. Apart from being very strict with sending the Russian player off for a second yellow and not having in mind he was booked earlier in the game, I don't see much room for improvement. All in all, I would say it was minimum 8.2 level performance.
