  1. Are Göçek and Liany still under special observation (with regard to possible promotion to the UEFA Elite Group)? Now, when there is no age limit... What do you think?

    1. Regarding Liany, we should not forget that he is on the list of preselected officials for 2018 WC, so a special monitoring for him can be explained by that. He should become Elite in order to hope this call.
      As for Göçek, you can be right. Fröjdfeldt is the first notable observer for him in the recent times. Perhaps something is planned, as for now I think he is a regular and reliable Category 1 referee. The match for which he is appointed it's very important for Slovakia.

    1. Jug refereed the reverse fixture (so very good prediction I suppose!), and Marciniak had Wales in the reverse fixture just off the top my head. I would be pretty satisfied with these designations though; we'll see!

    2. * Marciniak had Wales in the last round of matches in Nicosia

    3. And moreover, by then Michael Oliver and Matej Jug will already be in Chile for the WCu17.

    4. Mazic whistled on Monday in Serbian league, so he will be appointed probably in MD10.

  4. In my opinion, wrong penalty by Kuipers for an alleged deliberate handball.
    At the same time, it seemed to me that Vucinic in Montenegro - Austria scored after a clear control by arm.

    1. Obviously Kuipers haven't seen well (he shoved why he pointed to the spot, as he thought the player deliberately played with the arm which was in unnatural position, but Lithuanian player's arm was stick to the body, and the ball hit him somewhere near shoulder - there was only one slow motion). Very suspect penalty.
      About Vucinic's possible handball - it was just in front of AAR2, he had to see if it was handball. I couldn't see the best, even there were 3-4 slow motions. Firstly I thought there was a foul on Dragovic from Austria, and that it was the reason for protesting.

    2. Saw it now. First, there was small contact from behind and possible foul by Vucinic. But the handball was clear after that. It wasn't deliberate, but gave him full advantage and opportunity to score. Should be disallowed. AAR2 had to see that, and I believe that Orsato asked him if he saw anything. In second period AAR1 made mistake when Vucinic clearly didn't control the ball by his hand. Vucinic protested a lot after that, he was given yellow, and after that red card because he couldn' tcontrol himself. Not a good evening from Orsato's AARs.
      About Kuipers' first penalty I am still not sure, but for the second I am sure that the ball hit the shoulder of the player, and it wasn't PK.

      Delete
    3. I think AAR1 correctly informed the referee about a clear holding/pulling in 87'. I don't think that a handball was whistled.

      Delete
    4. About Kuipers. For the 1st penalty I saw one (not so good) replay, for the 2nd penalty 3 rather poor replays. In all angles it seems like the upper arm but I cannot be sure. I tend to trust the team's perception, of course with some doubts remaining, but specially in the 1st situation my feeling says correct decision: Yes the arm was close to the body. But he moved his whole body including the arm towards the ball. In a way two criteria are clashing, hand position and movement towards the ball.

    5. It is very interesting, Niclas, that you and me have different opinions in almost evry case. We see things differently. Here we have Chefren, Maldun and me on one side, you are on opposite side and have different view. And we are speaking again about Kuipers performance, like in natch Roma-Barcelona. It seems that he is your favorite and that you often try to support his decisions. In both matches he had a lot very doubtful decisions, and that is the fact.

  5. Strange decision by Delferiere. LUX's captain clearly controls the ball with his arm, but the referee gives an advantage that was not so. Instead of whistling the foul, he gave a corner kick. No doubts about the intention of the handball.

  6. Another doubtful penalty from Kuipers. Clean shoulder for me.

    1. I agree with you Nole....two very strange penalty kicks.....

  7. Haven't seen much from Slovakia-Bealarus, but I saw Gocek missed two clear YCs. I was surprised and comfused that he missed them, because they were so obvious.

  8. B.Kuipers - Slovenia-Lithuania. Two penalty decision ( both for the hand ball situation) IMO could be named as wery doubtful. Especially the second penalty into the SLO goals.
