  1. As far as I know it is the comeback of Arnold Hunter after his performance in Greece some months ago. Of course, a game in the UEFA Youth League cannot be really satisfying for the former group 1 referee.

    1. He already handled three UEFA games since that performance (25/02/2016):

      21/07/2016 FC Spartak Trnava - Shirak FC (obs: Hervé Piccirillo - FRA)
      06/09/2016 Russia U21 - Austria U21 (obs: Zihni Aksoy - TUR)
      10/10/2016 Israel U21 - Albania U21 (obs: Michel Piraux - BEL)

    2. Thank you - seems as if I've slept :)

  2. OT. Ken Henry Johnsen (Moen` s AAR) retires immediately

    1. Thanks for the info. All the best for his post-refereeing-career.

  3. Very good performance by Srdjan Jovanovic. Definitely left a promising impression. Good disciplinary control including a correct 2nd yellow card, consistent foul detection, kept control even though the match became a bit more tricky in the end. Good warnings where suitable, in 57' it was really borderline to a 2nd YC. But still acceptable to only give a warning.

    He could show a bit more personality by verbal communication, but that was no real weakness but rather a point to think about.

    I would give 8.5 - AR1 8.4, AR2 8.2/3, unfortunately AR2 had a 1m-offside-error in 90+3.

  4. What happened in Sevilla vs Zagreb?
    9 yellow cards from which twice double, booking for Zagreb player.
