    1. Observer importants also Melo Pereira, Stuchlik and
      Wagner.

      Delete
    2. I would not underestimate Bozhninovski (u19 EURO, often appointed for young talents) and Irvine either. With Lemmer observing Bezborodov, maybe UEFA surprises the Russian and Schörgenhofer with a CL group stage match each (or important EL matches).

      Delete
    3. Why do you take into consideration that Schörgenhofer could be appointed for a CL group stage match or important EL matches after having been completely ignored in the 2015/16 knockout phase?

      Delete
    4. Only based on the observer who is not that unimportant (at least considering his last matches and referees he observed).

  2. The controversy from yesterday's Lech Poznań - Jagiellonia Białystok game (Polish Ekstraklasa). What are your thoughts? UEFA often deem such tackles, where the ball is clearly played at first, as only reckless (see A18 in UEFA RAP 2016.1).

    1. OMG what a tackle!
      I must be honest: live, without replay, I had not the perception of such terrible foul! The ball is clearly hit at first, but what happens later is shocking. For me YC can't be enough. Despite of the ball hit, this should stay as SFP, in my opinion. Difficult to detect live, and I can understand why YC was prefered! But surely for me RC.
      Who was AR1? I think he had a better view on the incident. Perhaps FO as well...

      Delete
    2. Sorry I must correcy myself, impossible for AR1, he wasn't there. Only FO.

      Delete
    3. REF: Raczkowski, AR1: Listkiewicz, 4OF: Kwiatkowski

      We all agree that that should be a red card but it's very difficult to explain such decision to the boss who wants everything to be explained by the LoTG. Dynamic is not so high, the ball is played...

    In Italy Roberto Rosetti has been appointed as VAR (Video assistant referee) supervisor, he will teach serie A referees about that and he will explain the new technology. He is already doing that in these days:

  5. DFB sent some questions to IFAB about the new rules. I will post the answers later, you can test your understanding for the LotG by trying to answer yourself, how the referee should react in the following situations:
    1. At the halftime the goalkeeper is substituted without informing the referee. In the 50th minute the new goalkeeper stops a shoot with this hands.
    2. While play is not stopped, a substitute player throws a second ball onto the field.
    3. While play is not stopped, a substitute player throws a second ball onto the field and hits an opponent.
    4. After the final whistle, but still on the field, the AR informs the referee, that a defender kicked an opponent in his own penalty area before the final whistle. The AR had signalized the conduct before the whistle, but the referee didn#t notice the flag before.
    5. A substitute player is warming up next to the own goal. When the ball is rolling towards the empty goal, he enters the field and stops it before the goalline.
    6. The ball is played by a defender to his goalkeeper, who misses the ball, runs after it and stops it with his hand shortly before the goalline.
    7. A player is in an offside position in the penalty box. Shortly before a cross reaches him, he is pulled down by a defender.
    8. At a penalty kick, the attacker feints in an unsporting manner. At the same time the goalkeeper moves from his line too early
    9. At a penalty kick, the attacker feints in an unsporting manner. At the same time a defender enterst he penalty area too early.

    2. Answers:
      1. Play on, report after match
      2. Indirect free kick, yellow card
      3. Indirect free kick, red card
      4. Report (no red card)
      5. Penalty, red card
      6. Indirect free kick (no card)
      7. Penalty, yellow card
      8. Repeat penalty, yellow cards for both
      9. Indirect free kick, yellow card for attacker
      If you want to know the explanation for any of those, please write it here.

      Delete
    3. About Question 5,I do agree to send off a substitute in any circumstances for such untolerating behavior,but stopping a goal by foot is not an offence from my view...looking for your explanation.APPRECIATION.

      Delete
    4. Nonetheless in the new Laws of the Game such unsporting behaviour from a team official or substitute player is sanctioned with a direct free-kick / penalty kick (law 3). If it had been a third party, there would be a dropped ball.

      Delete
    5. Philipp S, could you please write explanations for all of these answers if you have it?
      Thanks in advance

    6. 1. The spirit of Rule 3, part 5, is that it is in this case not an deliberate attempt to deceive the referee. In contrast, we have two yellow cards, if a player changes his place with the GK without informing the referee.
      3. Not clarified yet, maybe IFAB will change it next year, but until now, we stay with the old interpretation
      4. A decision cannot be changed after the referee finished the game. A red card after the match can only be issued for conducts after the final whistle
      5. It is DOGSO. For DOGSO it is not necessary to have an action directed against an opponent. The spirit of Law 12 is, that such an action is extremely unfair and should be sanctioned as hard as possible.
      6. Might be DOGSO as well in the near future, but still to be discussed by IFAB. Until now, we stay without a card.
      7. Holding is a more serious offence than offside, because it requires a yellow card
      8. Both offences are equally serious (both YC) -> offences by both teams
      9. Feinting is a more serious offence than entering the are too early, because it requires a yellow card

  6. Faultless 1st half by Ivan Bebek. Good to see him back. He makes a very motivated impression tonight!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nice to hear that, indeed after a demotion, coming back on the pitch can become difficult. Very good for Bebek he is still motivated.

      Delete
    2. Was there any controversy in 2nd half?Because I read that he didnt give the goal for away team altough it was obvious that ball crossed the goal line..

      Delete
    3. FK Austria Wien is going to next round,so they wont talk about that anyway.

      Delete
    4. I watched only the first 45 minutes but I read that there were some controversial decisions afterwards. As “M“ already mentioned AR1 had a difficult goal/no goal decision to evaluate, furthermore there were 2 penalty appeals (Bebek decided to play-on twice).

      Delete
  7. Interesting situation in match Maribor : Aberdeen. In 23. minute ref gave the penalty for Aberdeen after bad foul from Handanovic. Correct given YC in DOGSO situation my opinion (also harsh foul otherwise, but YC seems OK), but short after that came another Aberdeen player and scored empty goal - too late because od whistle from ref Popov (BUL).

    http://videa.hu/videok/sport/maribor_abeerden_missedpenalty-pIkbeuEJ9MwOW1np?start=2.579362

    After that Handanovic saved the penalty shot.

    1. Referee could have waited for 2 or 3 seconds before whistling and of course without making any advantage gesture (absolutely not recommended in penalty area). Then, in case of goal he would have allowed it, in case of missed goal, he would have whistled the penalty.

  8. Tamás Bognár in SønderjyskE - Zagłębie Lubin

    Positives:
    - Good stepwise approach. Zagłębie Lubin was the more aggresive team and their players committed some SPA-like or careless but cynical fouls (24', 25', 28' - verbal warning, 48' - verbal warning). The referee issued the first yellow card in a good moment, when atmosphere was becoming more tense, for a clear reckless foul (51'). He did not forget about previous fouls and booked a player who committed more three one cynical fouls for PI (63').
    - He cared about technical issues. Moved back a throw-in execution (12'), didn't allow a restart of the game without a whistle after a yellow card was shown (85').
    - Some good advantages (26', 39', 41', 42').

    Points for consideration / improvement:
    - Don't allow a medical treatment being given on the field of play! A player should be removed as quickly as possible (78').
    - Positioning. Adjust your position in order to have a good angle and unobstructed view. Try to avoid being on the shot line (65').
    - Detection and assessment of reckless stamps (missed yellow card in 61').
    - Detection and assessment of impeding the progress of an opponent with contact (missed GK's foul in 87')
    - Sometimes it's good to slow things down and warn the players at set piece (fight for position before corner kick in 45+1').
    - Why so many whistles to allow a substitution (80').

  10. Roi Reinshreiber showed a good performance on the expected level in his probably most important game so far. He is a big talent and I could imagine his debut in the this year's UEL Group Stage. Good job tonight (8.3-8.4). AR2 (no FIFA) unfortunately with two clear mistakes concerning the wait-and-see-technique.

    Hope you can watch it outside Austria too. Nikola Popov with a very interesting situation, showing why a YC for DOGSO isn't a good idea by the IFAB, at least for my taste.

    1. I'm sure it's not a good idea. However, having watched the replay, the goalkeeper's tackle is a serious foul play

    2. I saw that Tilen Zupanek postet the clip alread above, sorry.

      I agree with you: SFP. But difficult to evaluate without replays, especially during game when the referee is focused on DOGSO/SPA in this situation, not on the foul itself.

      Delete
    3. The new LOG say, taht if the player had possibility to challenge for the ball - only YC Ž penalty.
      If the referee considered this challenge as serious foul play he must show the RC.

      Delete
  12. The 'perfect' decision was:
    Advantage, goal accorded to Maribor and red card for away goalkeeper.
