  1. Strange that UEFA selects an assistant referee who made a match-influencing mistake (wrongly disallowed offside goal) in the semifinals (Buzas). I did not expect that - even though it does not surprise me.

    1. One year ago it was the same, with Culum (SWE) selected for the final, after a crucial mistake in a match involving Italy.

      I would dare to say that most of the appointments, at least for ARs, are already planned before the tournament.

    2. That seems to be the case on U17. Really strange, Niclas.

  2. Björn Kuipers had announced his International retirement After WC 2018. He aims to be on the WC and to retire Straight After the tournament.

    1. Well... he quits international refereeing then, I don't think that he will fully quit refereeing at all.

    mistakes of Collina?

  4. Terrible scenes in the CAF Confederations Cup game between Kawkab Athlétique Club de Marrakech (Morocco) and Al-Marraikh SC (Sudan). The referee, Gabonese Éric Arnaud Otogo-Castane, was assaulted by Sudanese club's official. See video from 1:32...

    1. Terrible - but it is literally INCREDIBLE that Otogo continued the match, too.

  5. OT : Nicolas Danos (french assistant from Turpin euro team) has been replaced at last Time ( d day of final ) for France Cup final by Cyril Gringore...really strange ! Hope there is no injury for him !

  6. Bayern-Borussia: very,very bad match. Too mistakes
    of Marco Fritz. And one evident penalty against
    Vidal.

    1. Good, solid performance. Very good match management, reading of the game was given. Player-management on a good, empathic level. He tuned his approach well to the game. But - 1-2 bigger decisions were technically wrongly taken. As it is usual in finals, there seem to be other rules at times. Nonetheless, Fritz' performance is widely perceived as positive in Germany...

    2. What are you talking about, Niclas. No way it was a good, solid performance. I'm talking about overall capability of refereeing "big games":
      1. he's had a few situations with him turning too rapidly from players fighting for ball towards possible counter attack, missing few fouls and in several situations whistling them after very long time (help from 4R or AR even though they occured literally next to him).
      2. what was wrong with him when it comes to advantages... he gave 2 for BAY they didn't even want. Here is the situation: a foul in middle area, player lying on ground, his teammates playing ball to their DEFENSIVE line players and he gives an advantage... cm'on. In one situation i think Vidal simply stopped the play and reff showed him advantage again with his own hands told him to kick the ball outside off line... did the ref even think in that moment... you know, you don't do this, nobody gives advantages in this area and 0 possibility of promissing attack with player on the ground.
      3. Very good performance by assistnat refs, though they tend to run on grass a lot :D
      4. Besides those 2 situations wrongly taken (as you stated in yr reply) I agree he didn't technically make many wrong decisions... but take into consideration his bad positioning (he most often didn't see a thing, had to rely completly on assistants), very bad card showing (like he was about to destroy those players, showed them harshly, way too agressive for a simple YC- I'm thinking of 20'smth min situation, i guess it was yc for Vidal?).
      Last point: I mean: he lacks style, skills, approach and everything a referee of BAY-DOR should've had. Luckily for him he didn't f%ck up the game, but it was due to lots of luck and help of others. I wouldn't reply this way, wouldn't do it at all, but I cannot simply agree with words: "Good, solid performance". No way, game was out of his league.

      Mvh,

    3. I don't say that I disagree with parts of your observations. The point is that in a final seen by 15 mio people, 80.000 in the stadium and the 2 biggest German clubs fighting for a trophy the BIG PICTURE is more important than single situations. In my view, he made some crucial mistakes, and yes, he made some wrong calls. And this has to be integrated into his mark. Nonetheless - believe me that I am in a dilemma here as well - control, empathy, match feeling were all given. Single decisions are only one part of a referee performance, even more in a final, where referees are rather figures who contribute to a spectacle than 100% law-consistent referees... I do not say that I like this trend though.

      On the other hand, I find it hard to deal with opinions like yours that focus on negative aspects for 100% with regard to the main referee. The picture you draw of the performance is far away from reality.

    4. I have not seen everything of the match, and indeed, there were some mistakes, and some important ones, but over-all I think he delivered a good performance. I agree on Niclas in this case: certainly no bad performance. I don't think one of the teams has much reason to talk about the referee after the match.

  7. Guido Kleve missed offside leading to the England's goal (2'). Deniz Aytekin waited as long as possible before issuing first yellow card what was a good tactic, especially in a friendly game. Nonetheless, he could've gone for stern verbal warnings in more cases and perhaps issue one more card. He is not much respected by players (shy attempt to calm down things after small conflict in the 45+1' shows that well). The most surreal scene happened around the 27th minute when Turkish coach gave fourth official a mobile phone (most likely with a video/screenshot of offside at the England's goal). I think Siebert shouldn't have taken it but he chose to did otherwise...

    2. I watched the video. Well, at this level you can't miss this offside.

    3. I think that Siebert shouldn't have accepted to watch the video on the phone. This is forbidden for the officials.

      Delete
    4. But... are you sure that Siebert wanted it for watching the video? It is possible that he asked for the phone to turn off and seize it.

      Delete
    5. Hmm, maybe you're right. I had the feeling the coach asked him for watching the scene and he agreed but it in fact it could've been the other way round - Siebert asked him for the phone to turn it off. Good spot. And now we know nothing. :)

    6. Fatih Terim tried to show the position, but 4th official took the phone and kept it. I believe he didn't watch it.

      Delete
    7. Does it matter? It's 25 minutes after the goal, and if that makes the coach happy, who cares? It has absolutely no impact on the game.

  8. There were too much incidents to mention all of them in the Copa del Rey final but the way del Cerro Grande handled the game was extraordinary. He kept cool head whole the game, extremely consistent and firm. Definitely he won the occasion and UEFA should follow him more carefully from now.

    1. Four years ago, referees for EURO 2012 Matches 1-4 were released on 5 June 2012, three days before the first game (Poland - Greece, 08/06/12).
      I can add that UEFA Referees Committee has a meeting, planned on 8 June in Paris (source: http://www.uefa.org/calendar/index.html ).
      So very likely, I think that we will have the first appointments around those days (7 or 8 June...).

    2. Thanks for replying. Will be interesting to see the appointments when they're out.

    1. It was reported that the first meeting for UEFA preselected officials will be on September. So I think on August we will have the list...
