  1. To clarify that: Nicolas Danos is really there, and also Del Cerro Grande is really there (2 matches on 2 days).

    Obviously, UEFA wants to make Cakir fly a bit under the radar so that he is free of any unnecessary baggage before heading to the K.O. phase.

    1. Which is Danos' other match?

      Delete
    2. Danos is a surprise because it was suggested that he would miss the competition due to injury - the "2 matches on 2 days" referred to Del Cerro only.

    3. I misunderstood it. Sorry!

  2. Interesting appointment: I would have rather swapped the French and the Turkish team since - at least on paper - Portugal seems to be a clearer favorite against Iceland than is Austria against Hungary. In my opinion, the duel between the second-ranked and the third-ranked team in a group rather requires Cakir than that between the first-ranked and the fourth-ranked team (according to the current FIFA World Ranking).

    1. I agree on that point.
      Maybe it's more the higher attention (later kick-off + Portugal) for the second match that influenced the decision. Let's see whether that trend continues and FRA-ALB gets the "better" referee than RUM-SUI.

  7. Arnautovic: "Watch out! Watch out". Good that Turpin warned him. He has to keep an eye on him, he is known for revenge fouls.

  8. I think missed YC if he give foul again HUN9

    ReplyDelete
  9. I think Turpin is now allowing too many fouls.

    ReplyDelete
  10. 31' Freekick in favor of AUT 30m before the HUN goal. Correct decision but I would prefer a caution too.

    2' later correct YC for Austria, the first one in this game.

    ReplyDelete
  11. So far I think Turpin is surely at the borderline between a pleasantly generous line and a laissez-faire approach. Moreover I am not 100% sure whether Turpin knows what he does or simply missed the one or other more intense contact.

    But so far, I think he is doing well overall. I also liked his warnings so far.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well, all in all a solid first half by Turpin and his team. But his line is very (!) risky and in my opinion it was too generous sometimes. There is physical play on the one hand and there are clear (foot) fouls on the other hand. He has still the control so far but I have some doubts whether this will be the case until the end of the game.

    I recognized a positive development concerning personality skills, communication and pre-active approach.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Turpin shouldn't be on the EURO. He's a referee with low quality's. He has a lack of personality and a poor foul detection. His gestures are arrogant and he has no naturel authority.

    It's not my intention to offend him but it was already a big surprise for me that he is appointed for such a important tournament.

    ReplyDelete
  14. He certainly is doing good in a not that challenging match so far. However it's not a good image when an assistant corrects you on a throw-in (13') and especially when the ball hits you (20').

  19. Bravo Clément Turpin. The foul is surely orange and a direct RC might be acceptable, but I agree with the 2nd YC here.

    2 good decisions (no handball / foul on goalkeeper) by AAR2 then.

    1. I agree, a very important moment of the game. Turpin managed it well.

    2. Excellent and brave call at the game changing moment. He could go with direct RC as well.

      Delete
  20. 65': 2nd YC. Very good decision taken in cooperation with AAR2.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Correct 2nd yellow card to Dragovic, but the card showing procedure was quite bad... Hasty, uncertain. He was too much in a rush to go to Arnautovic. Walking away while showing the red card doesn't look strong.

    68' Correct no penalty, despite the protests.

    Turpin is doing a good job, but I guess it will be a difficult game now...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Very brave goal cancelled and clear Yellow card ( mandatory When you see contact point upper the foot).
    After, no penalty : good decision also !

    ReplyDelete
  23. The question is: Does this 2nd YC really match with the line he applied the rest of the game? For example 2' (similiar tackle, no foul whistle) or 31' (no card). I have some doubts on that. Watching only the situation itself a YC is acceptable/correct (but far away from red in my eyes, Niclas).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Studs making contact with the leg (shinbone) 30-40 cms above the turf is minimum reckless. As this card is mandatory, for me there is no question on whether it suits to his line or not. The first fouls happened very early in the game and are not comparable to the contact in 65' (reminded me slightly on Rodriguez in URU-ITA at first glance, even though the contact was still higher there).

      Having said that, everything else than a 2nd YC there would have been a missed 2nd YC = crucial mistake = 7.9 in my view.

      Delete
    2. My TV station and a referee expert (former FIFA referee, now observer) judge it as carless, you nearly as SFP. Well... I agree with Turpin (reckless) but there is simply no line. 3min later no card for HUN?! Clear SPA...

      Delete
    3. 80' again orange? ;)

      Delete
    4. Then he should rewatch some UEFA clips. That's reckless at least.

      Delete
    5. Niclas, I like your comment. You are 100% right.

    6. @Gitzlo: Which former FIFA referee is commenting in Austria? Fritz Stuchlik? I am watching this match on ZDF.

      In one point I agree, Turpin more and more loses his line if he had one. This does not change the correctness of the 2nd YC though.

      Delete
    8. 86' again no card. Please tell me where you see an uniform line, or something like match control? A lot of unsporting behavior not judged too, for example Arnautovic at the 2nd YC scene.

      Delete
    9. @Peter: Thomas Steiner (ORF calls him 'former international referee' - was he really one?).

      Delete
    10. I neither made a comment on the degree of uniformity in his line nor on his match control level.

      Delete
    11. @Niclas: Thank you very much - reckless of course, for SFP too low intensity in my eyes.

      Delete
    12. Normally such contacts are RCs, the component which makes it reckless only is that the contact was relatively light IMO. So I agree, low-moderate intensity and not more than a YC, I had the tackle a bit more intense in the back of my mind until watching the replay.

      Delete
    13. @Gitzlo: No, Thomas Steiner was no FIFA referee. ;-)

      Delete
  24. 72': Missed YC. Clear case of SPA. Should have been an easy call...

    ReplyDelete
  25. 85' Missed YC in my opinion. Btw, I think the tackle of Fuchs was a foul too...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well... Turpin has a lot of potential, but this EURO comes too early for him, I think.

    Major decisions correctly taken - but apart from this, a lot of problems with his line, his acceptance and the match control too. Some overseen fouls (especially during first half), imo 3 missing YC (31' reckless foul, e.g. 72' unsporting beh. Arnautovic, 85' SPA). He did not decide the game but he was not good neither. (8.0-8.1 imo)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I totally agree, Gitzlo. Not a bad performance, but simply too early. One almost could see him struggle. In the first half he did quite a good job, but in the 2nd half he simply lost his line, and didn't punish the fouls right.

      Delete
  27. I didn't see the game, just the 2nd yellow. Obviously correct, but the card presentation was sloppy and therefore not convincing. I think it HAS to be shown quicker - big decision with such a score and minute - that shows you are sure of that and not afraid. Then he could easily go and sort out confrontation in the box

    I could point out one technical (in general) issue in taht sense - I always wonder why so many top referees actually put their cards (esp. red) in the pockets of their shirts. It's obvious that it takes you then longer to take it out and sometimes it is important to do it quickly and firmly (an example is this situation). Isn't it better to put in in the back pocket of shorts, which allows you to get it out quicker? Or you can always take 2...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree with everything you said. Turpin's card showing procedure was indeed poor.

      On your last question: I like how Felix Zwayer does it.
      For straight red cards, he has a red card in his back pocket which can be sorted out quickly. For 2nd Yellow Cards, he often sorts out both the YC and another RC from his chest pockets at the same time with maybe a 0,5s intervall between raising them behind each other.

      Delete
  28. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8gWz9Y9htU
    The foul is really borderline to straight RC but YC is still ok, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Overall the Turpin's performance was okay, the most important situation was evaluated correctly. In 1st half the very lenient approach caused to a few missed fouls. Point to improve is surely the discplinary control, there were some incidents (especially in 2nd half) that had to be punished with a YC. Otherwise I think he did quite well - better than expected. My mark would be about 8.2; Fredy Fautrel maybe even deserves an 8.5.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe the 2nd YC was even mainly AAR2's call (?). 8.1-8.2 for me, too.

      Delete
    2. Don't you think that the 2nd YC scene should be managed better? He holds the card but very close to him 3-4 HUN players surround another opponent. Turpin just watch them.

      Delete
    3. Yes, I also think that this decision was taken by Fautrel. Therefor he might get an 8.5.

  31. Just cause s.o. made no match-defining crucial mistakes his Performance cannot be called good. No Match control. No consistent line. Minimum 3 missed YCs.8.1 not more for me.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree on the point of match control. A better, more confident and consistent line would have led to better game management. Saying that, Turpin didn't have a bad game.

      Delete
  32. There is something I hardly understand tonight.

    I agree with most of the comments:
    - in first half, Turpin did quite a good job and kept the game under control. His line was quite generous concerning physical play, however it was consistent. This line was quite risky if the match turned out to be tenser in second half.
    - in the first part of second half (until 70'), everything was also under control and well-managed. The decision to send the austrian player off (that also resulted in the cancelled goal) was a brave and quite unpopular one, but it was necessary and decisive for the outcome of the game. Just after that, AAR2 (Fautrel) and Turpin correctly rejected a penalty appeal from Austria.
    - in the last 20 minutes, he should (could?) have issued two cautions for cases of USB and SPA. We can discuss whether those cases were clear cases of USB and SPA. I think the answer is rather positive.

    Eventually, when the match is over, one can say that he showed some weaknesses in the end of the game. However, the match was under control until the last minutes, which has to be underlined because I had some doubts during half time. Plus, all major decisions were correctly taken, play and player's safety were protected until the last minutes.

    So one question comes to my mind when I read some comments here: why does this performance is assessed as "not good"?
    When I compare to other referees, like Atkinson, Velasco or Kassai who had direct influence on the outcome of the match, I struggle in understanding how some of the readers here can say: well, 8.0-8.1...

    I really hope that if Rizzoli, Brych or Cakir produced the same performance, such a rigorous approach would be applied and I also hope that management, feeling for the game and courage would not be too much emphasized and that one would not appeal to 'efficient leniency' to justify one or two missed yellow cards...

    But I repeat my first words: technically, I agree with most of the comments here. I just don't draw the same conclusions.

    1. Completely agree. Usually confident and clear, but seems a little unsure today.

  40. 84': excellent alertness by AAR2, preventive sprint following a contact between Pepe and an opponent, he had already in mind that a conflict was possible to happen, this is proactive refereeing, you have surely noticed that.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Nice to see AR2 get the spare ball off the field of play himself, using common sense. Too often officials leave it to someone else delaying play. Good to see

    ReplyDelete
  42. easy match for ref, portugal dont impress me.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Free-kick in front of AR1 in 90+2': Was there really a whistle of Cakir? If there was one, then it was very early, Cakir wasn't really positioned yet when Quaresma took the free-kick. Strange.

    ReplyDelete
  44. It is impressive to see how Cakir interacts with players so they are actually having a conversation and discussing the positions with him instead of yelling or protesting.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Overall, a good game for the Turkish team, with AR2 and AAR2 impressive. They all kept control of the game, and when the temperature rose, in part due to slightly inconsistent refereeing, Cakir could always (eventually) regain control, although I'm probably only finding these faults as Cakir is consistently a top, top official.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I really liked what Cakir did at min. 90+4' (last foul).

    He placed the defending wall 1m after the 9.15. The reason is that the wall should be placed directly on the penalty area line. So at a possible handball it would be difficult to prove where the player was standing.

    That's clever refereeing IMO.

  48. Pepe incident is difficult to assess - it can be an attempt to violent conduct but we can't be sure. For this reason, I think Cakir wont get a crucial mistake there.
    I think that the Turkish was overall OK, but not excellent as always, so I agree with your view, more or less. I would assign a 8.3.

  49. I never saw Cakir showing such an aggressive and arrogant attitude and body languague as today. At least it looked like that and, what is quite disturbing, was always directed towards Icelandic players (7' after missed advantage, 68' Böðvarsson - Pepe duel, 81' after foul on C. Ronaldo, 90+2' after Bjarnason's foul on Quaresma) while Portuguese players got away with many infringements and unsporting behaviour (12' C. Ronaldo's dissent, 68' Pepe's reckless foul - I think he was still fighting as the ball would be in play, so I interpret his behaviour as nothing else but a typical reckless foul). Not really convincing attitude - nervous (?), arrogant (?), too preventive attitude set by him (?), exaggeration in taking Icelandic players as trouble-makers (?).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This is exactly what came to my mind too... His approach disappointed me a little bit, from the begin he obviously didn´t have the same measures for both teams in this cases - dissent, unsporting behavior etc...

    2. And on the other hand often very friendly talking to portuguese players. It was really big contrast.

      Delete
    3. I agree completely with both RayHD and rreeff; he was not evenhanded in dealing with the two teams; even if you cannot link it to specific incorrect decisions, this surely must influence the overall evaluation; and while a calm appearance and good player management is what we normally see from Cakir, today he appeared angry, irritated and a bit out of control; his sprinting after the Pepe incident should have been applauded if it had been directed at Pepe, but not when it was directed at two ISL players who were understandably upset; and it is difficult to understand/accept that Pepe was not punished; there is no explanation for what he did, other than clear intention! when a normally strong referee has such flaws in a game, then we must point it out, instead of making excuses;

      Delete
  50. Did we see a replay of the last handball?

    Also interesting where he find the two extra added minutes?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Regarding two last free kicks awarded against ISL in additional time. The first foul occurred 1 second before the final whistle - had to be whistled. Execution of that free kick resulted directly in Finnbogasson’s deliberate handling the ball while jumping as a defensive wall. Another free kick had to be awarded and yellow card issued. The referee had no choice but to wait for the end of action directly connected with the first free kick awarded.

      Delete
    2. According to the LOTG these are no reasons... ;) but of course, a final whistle before the free-kick would be nonsense! Not ideal but he had (nearly) no other choice as to wait...

      Delete
  51. To be honest, I think that Cakir was not 100% concentrated and convincing today. 90+2 is a good example of that (free kick execution although he was not ready yet). I don't go so far like you, RayHD, but I fully understand what you mean and partly also had these impressions.

    Overall OK, with a missed YC in half 1 and no clear reaction to what Pepe did. Some minor mistakes at the end like a phantom foul by CR7 on the GK or a wrong goal kick decision.

    Control was given, assistants were fine as well and the overall level of foul detection was good, too. The impression I got today, nonetheless, is that Cakir did not give 100% in a match "only" involving Portugal and Iceland and which is, on paper, no top match.

    8,2 for me.

  52. I didn't like Cakir's approach tonight. I had the impression it was somehow "aggressive", specially towards Iceland's players, as already pointed out by Ray. And also I think he was somehow "lucky" that Iceland's players behave mostly fairly, as if he had shown such attitude to another team or in a more heated match, I believe he would have had a lot of trouble to keep control.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I agree with the comments about the aggressive approach and body language by cakir. It seems he was furious, angry, his face was always dark, aggressive, never dialogue, especially with Iceland's players. That's strange
