    1. Borbalan, Tagliavento, Nijhuis and Sidiropoulos are possible names too, I think.

      As we discussed, Mazic got injured about 10 days ago. Perhaps already recovered, but I don't think that we will see him in this week. I think he had Barça - Arsenal, and then Karasev replaced him.

      @Gitzlo
      I agree, but among the names you mentioned, I think Nijhuis and Borbalan are more probable than the others.

    3. I don't think that Sidiropoulos has a match.

    6. Taylor had Basel-Sevilla, so Atkinson is not possible in Sevilla, maybe Nijhuis could be there (or Mazic...). And Atkinson might be in Braga instead.
      Otherwise I like your predictions.

    7. I agree with 'Referee138'.
      I also expect Mazic.

    Excellent NO FLAG decision by AR1 Cann in Leicester - Newcastle, minute 00:17 of the video. You can see that at the moment of the long pass, #9 LEI is in offside (00:16) but there is a clear deliberate play by a defender (head-butt), so offside is not punishable.

  4. I'd like your opinions on 3 (Villa handball?) and 5 (Olave foul on GK?): http://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2016/03/14/rsls-game-winner-and-villas-goal-under-microscope-instant-replay?autoplay=true

    In my view, it is a clear handball and a foul on the GK.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Regarding Villa. The ball is fully expected and the attacker does nothing to avoid a contact although he has much time to do so. On the other hand, he didn't predict the hard physical play of the defender. That little push changes Villa's body position entirely. I would understand both argumentations.

      Second situation is a wrongly awarded free kick (dive - looking for a contact) and missed foul on the GK (careless by hand).

      Delete
    2. Excellent no-offside decision earlier in clip.

      Villa -- handling preventable. I'd be calling that. Arm is used to ward off defender. Movement caused by defender not very relevant.

      2nd situation. Referee is not expecting a dive in situations here.

      Doubtful foul against keeper. Attacker generally played ball in a fair manner. I'm OK with a no-call. I love commentator: "looking at ball" -- this does not always excuse player.

  10. Very intensive game for Eriksson and Klasenius - despite the crucial mistake by Klasenius (unfortunately it seems at this has a very big relevance for the outcome of the game) a good performance as far as I could see. Eriksson is - with all his expierience and his personality - definitely the right man for this challenge. Full control of the game. I look forward to see another 30 minutes of this great game!

    5. Good summary by Pat rick: Very good but not free of mistakes... But it is impossible to stay faultless in such a difficult game. All in all we can congratulate Mr. Eriksson!

      Quite challenging game for Klasenius too - unfortunately the mentioned crucial mistake (not so easy without any replays!), otherwise a strong performance too.

    6. Very good match?
      I don't think so.
      It was decent match for Eriksson, and unfortunately ruined with AR's crucial mistake.
      Somethimes I have impression that when Eriksson wants to have more strict approach, he has problems to be consistent and have clear line.
      He is better when he has lenient approach.

    7. Not a very good match, missed an intentional elbow on Morata and the fall on Pogba that favoured the 4-2. Definitely not good.

    4. Use this link to watch the mentioned challenge prior to the Bayern-goal (4-2).

      https://vimeo.com/159291074

      For me the no foul call is at least acceptable, not to say correct. Sure, there is an arm around the waist, but I don't think it brings Pogba down, and at the same time it's Pogba's arms that reach backward. With his foot Kimmich plays the ball, and therefore I can understand and support the play on decision. But admitted, borderline situation.

      Delete
    5. I did like Eriksson. I think he was very good yesterday. But this is a team job and if his assistant makes such a huge mistake, I can't just say that he is the best candidate for the final. But I would love it if he gets the final. I don't know how UEFA will analyse this game. I just hope they don't punish Eriksson for the mistake of his assistant.

  13. Are you really think that his yellow cards were good? He showed three or four cards who didn't need. After second Bayern's goal substitute player get on the pitch, came to penalty area and he didn't show him yellow card.

  14. In my opinion it was a very strong performance of Jonas Eriksson. Not everyone would control such a game. He chose a good tactic - not being overly lenient - because some individuals from both teams are known to be problematic players if you're too kind for them. Some mistakes must have been done in this match, but they were only minor ones. Eriksson, as always, didn't want to be in the spotlight, intervened only when really needed. It worked well. Also Klasenius was very helpful in regards to managing conflicts. Apart from the crucial mistake (yeah, I am still angry it has decided such a beutiful game or, in another words, gave Bayern an unfair bigger opportunity to equalize) his assistance was invaluable. Jonas Eriksson may be really satisfied after this evening (8.4 or 8.5 would be a fair mark). And I would predict him for the final without a small doubt but having in mind the Klasenius' mistake... Question: do you think that assistant's mistake will have an impact on the chances of Swedish team to handle the final clash in Milan?

    1. He is favorite - the only problem for zum could be of bayern and wolfsburg get out next round! In this case Felix Brych will get it for sure... For me with Rizzoli Nr 1 in the world

      Delete
    2. Couple of comments:
      If Eriksson is having challenging night (in a good way), then I would be scared for the other referees who could have been officiating this game. He is definitely one of their trusted guys for big matches (considering no Brych and Rizzoli, and an English referee in the first leg although I wouldn't have minded Clattenburg for the second).
      The offside call mistake.....just can't happen at this level. For those in favor of "video refereeing", who claim it is supposed to get rid of blatant mistakes (such as this one), how would you correct this if the referee as already blown the whistle to stop play? I don't think you can give the team the goal. Curious about your thoughts.
      Also curious about your thoughts on how the referee really took a hard line against time wasting at the beginning of the match. Too frequently, you see teams take forever to get the play restarted. I am not offering immunity to the Juventus players that kicked the ball away, and were carded, but I thought tonight's referee did more than what I have seen in other games.
      All in all (minus the offside call), I thought the Swedish team showed that the final is theirs to lose. Brych, Clattenburg, and my long shot Velasco Carballo (with the retirement talks swirling and a good performance in Paris) are really the only other candidates. However, I feel the chance of a Spanish team being in the final is very high.

      Delete
    3. My top 3 for CL Final 2016 from before and after yesterday evening:
      1) Eriksson - 2) Brych - 3) Velasco

      It is a strange situation, probably Collina and co. know that if they appoint the Swedish team, they'll lose one of their top5 referees after EURO 2016. I really cannot imagine that Eriksson would go on in case of a CL final and a more or less successful EURO tournament.

      I am German, so maybe I am biased. Brych's team is, in my view, the most consistently good team UEFA has at the moment. Not as brilliant as a Rizzoli, but I cannot remember a match out of control, huge mistakes or bigger fuss in their international matches. They would deserve it. Maybe we'll have el clásico in the semifinals, appointing Brych for one of the matches could be a compromise.

      Finally Velasco has impressed me, I must say. I thought he was another referee in Paris. I have never seen him in a so motivated and concentrated fashion for years. But 2-3 very good performances are a bit thin for a CL final. He is a candidate for the semis though as long as the Spanish teams allow it.

      Finally Atkinson and/or Clattenburg. If ManCity go out, they of course also have some chances. I don't see any other referee for Milano at the moment.

      It will be interesting how much Skomina gets this season. Wolfsburg-Gent, no cards, no problems, in front of Collina. He has no reason to not appoint him again for a CL match. Maybe a QF, maybe an SF... or even EL final.

      Delete
    4. So you think that Klasenius' mistake will have no impact on their chances to get the final?

      Delete
    5. I'm not sure but rather don't think so. At least in Germany, the mistake was not clearly visible in the TV (only 1 replay from a dynamic camera in bird perspective, no chance to draw a line or whatever). Nobody talked about it really.

      I would say that such a mistake normally rules you out. Normally :)

      Delete
    6. I would add Mazic to the list of candidates, if he performs well tonight. Of course, he should get a QF first and has to be lucky with the teams then. But it is possible, I think.

      Delete
    7. In my opinion it is very difficult to assess Eriksson performance, really. I think that the overall picture can be positive, performance was surely not faultless, but in the context of a so challenging game, one must take into account that it was very difficult. I think he was better in first half and perhaps the beginning of second half, after that, there were some small lacks in control, but one can still say OK. The big problem was of course the wrong offside by Klasenius, in Italy the discussion is mostly only about that, as one can easily guess. I think that in case of such performance, without that crucial mistake, committee would have been really content and we would have been quite sure regarding CL final appointment. Now, I'm in doubt, I don't know how much this mistake will affect the chances for the Swedish crew to get a final.
      But yes, this time there are only a few names. If not Eriksson, Brych (of course waiting for Bayern) could be another option. Clattenburg is in my opinion the third one, or very likely the second one (I think Bayern will reach at least semifinals).
      Then, some other "background" options: Mazic, Skomina.
      Velasco Carballo after some excellent performances would deserve that, but with 3 Spanish teams in quarterfinals, I think, almost impossible already from now.

      Delete
    8. Velsco has surprised me too. His last two outings have been very good. He has really upped his game; perhaps doesn't want a reapeat of his last two tournament appearances.

      As for the CL final, I too believe everything hinges on Bayern. It's really a toss of a coin between Brych and Eriksson.

      Delete
    9. Eriksson missed also a foul on Pogba on the 4-2 and an intentional elbow on Morata by Kimmich away from the ball during a counter.

      Delete
  15. The question is whether Eriksson really controlled the game by 100%. No doubt that his reaction to conflicts in form of body language, management and cards was good as usual. Refereeing also requires prevention though and not only reaction. And here I am not sure whether Eriksson can be blamed for not getting all players calm (really many small confrontations until the end of extra time), or whether he did what was possible.

    Both assistants have room for improvement. Both entered the field of play quite often, here and there they should have stayed on their lines. AR2 can work on his wait and see before flagging fouls (adv.).

    Criticism on a high level. 8,5-7,9-8,3-8,-8,4-8,4 would be my marks.
