  1. I expect now Cakir, Kuipers and another name.

    Cakir: he wont handle Bosnia - Ireland having officiated the Irish national team in the last match. So Slovenia - Ukraine or Denmark - Sweden for him. Reading the observers, I think that match in Slovenia should be the selected one. It is true he already handled Ukraine in a play off for a major tournament, two years ago, but there weren't problems and it was an overall good performance. So it should be possible. With Dallas in Denmark I expect a different name and this should be a very important test for the involved official.
    No doubts about Kuipers in Ireland with Bo Karlsson... suitable match and observer.

    1. Could Atkinson be a possible name for Denmark-Sweden? (English referee and Scottish observer). It could be very important for UEFA if they choose Clattenburg or Atkinson for EURO, or both of them.
      Having predicted Kuipers for this one originally, I think after this appointment, we can say that Kuipers should be a safe bet in Ireland.

      K.S.

    2. Björn Kuipers strikes again, He's a terribly overrated referee.

  2. So Cakir for SVN-UKR and perhaps Atkinson for DEN-SWE?

  3. Excellent performance of Velasco and his team in a passionate match but fair in general. IMO he got the ticket for Euro in France

    2. I watched the match in the Grupama Stadium so I see more tings. Carballo mised more times . There was 2 interesting penalty situation,Corner/goal kick. I think he was weak,but he wasnt much work.

  6. I have many doubts about this penalty called by Kuipers (AAR1?). Mmmhh....

  7. Crucial mistake for me. Handball criteria not fulfilled IMHO.

  8. Missing 2nd YC against Spahic - reckless tackle. I understand why he did not send him off for tactical thoughts. But such a tackle demand compulsory cautions.

    For me no handball penalty either (at first glance).

    1. Agreed. Spahic walking the proverbial tightrope...

  9. About the penalty: for me it is unclear whether the ball was touched with the right arm (close to body, surely no penalty), with the left, outstretched arm (penalty?) or maybe even both arms... anyone seen a clear replay?

  10. IMO the striker didn't use excesive force or brutality so it's just an unsporting behaviour. Thank you Lászlò for the link ;)

  11. The next missing 2nd YC again against Spahic (69'). Clear reckless tackle. Kuipers has not even given a warning. If his mission has been to keep all players alive, congrats. For me a poor performance.

    1. I'm really astonished, there aren't explanations. I must be honest, a poor performance, for me penalty is mistake and at least two occasions in which Spahic had to go.

  12. Perhaps he forgot his red card in the dressing room...? ;)

  13. Underneath the links to some clips from the Ireland - Bosnia Herzegovina game, the first one being a compilation with Spahic being the leading character.

    1. Apart from the severity of each offense, this is a paramount example of persistent infringment.
      Furthermore, watching again the last foul (69') I think this is more than a crucial mistake.

    2. Spahic -- at one point, incorrect player warned. Last foul 100% reckless.

      PK correct. Ball hit outstretched left hand of player.

      McClean card correct. Prevented opponent from getting to ball.

      I have no probs with Zukanovic YC. But easily preventable.

      Here is what I see: Constantly being surrounded because he's not quickly isolating and dealing with the original culprit. Most clear in last video: Irish player should have been isolated and warned immediately for the kick. If Kuipers does that, it reduces surrounding and there would be no YC to a frustrated opponent who was just kicked.
