  1. Good games for Collum and Clattenburg, another poor match for Královec with Lord Elleray observing him...

    Another tries for Strömbergsson and Buquet with committee members. Maybe they both will be promoted in December.

    1. I agree with everything you said. Committee's members for Buquet and Strömbergsson, a final decision is expected.
      Another low profile game for Královec but this time on the paper it sounds a bit more interesting because French team can still qualify and must win in Zagreb. But both previous games of Dinamo Zagreb at home were handled by Category 1.
      Monaco - Tottenham and Copenhagen - Porto are more than crucial in the respective groups, therefore we have two experienced Elite.
      Clattenburg meets again Juventus after a quite long time and the discussed Europa League semifinal against Benfica.
      Tomorrow we should see Skomina and perhaps Kassai in a game. They will be out from MD6, but of course they could be appointed in EL on Thursday as well.

      Delete
    2. Skomina is in Saudi Arabia today, so...

      Delete
    3. Perhaps Skomina goes to Old Trafford - observer would suit, the standings would justify it.

      Delete
  2. Very good game for Undiano, because the outcome of group E is still open. Maybe the biggest surprise in this set.
    Kralovec maybe be in danger of relegation, I did not expect that.
    Strömbergsson and Buquet with a last test before the promotion decision, it was obvious to see first group referees in these two matches.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Elleray with Královec is IMO the most significant referee-observer-duo we have on Tuesday. What does that mean? Are they considering a demotion?

    Collum's appointment makes much sense as the game is not really decisive for the group anymore - that's why I guess we can expect a name like Fernández in Arsenal tomorrow, too.

    Clattenburg was the most logical name for that game, as English referees were difficult to appoint to groups this time.

    Strömbergsson and Buquet both with chances to convince the committee, however I believe that if one of them might be promoted this period, then it would be Strömbergsson. The question will be whether UEFA has major plans with him as a person or whether he is just a placeholder for Ekberg (who still needs 3-4 years to the top most likely).

    1. I would not expect Fernández Borbalán as his AR1 is paired with Undiano, which is actually strange as Undiano's AR1 has been appointed as 4th official.

      Delete
    2. Good point. In that case, Group A should go to Italy :) Then Orsato might be a good name for Arsenal with Tagliavento for Ludogorets.

      Delete
    3. I think Fernández Borbalan and Mateu Lahoz will not be appointed this matchday: Cabañero Martinez is usually the AR1 with Fernandez Borbalan and Díaz Pérez del Palomar goes in Mateu Lahoz team since the beginning of this season, also in Spanish liga (thinking in Russia WC 2018 in my opinion) and both of them will in Undiano,s team in Moscow next tuesday.

      Delete
    4. Group A will definitely go to Italian Referees. Clattenburg deservedly gets the big match. Kralovec with a committee member. Can't really tell what's going on.

      Delete
    5. What about Celtic-Barca? Of course a massive atmosphere, but no entirely "important" match. Deaconu also indicates someone younger and not fully experienced. Karasev?

      Delete
    6. Fernández Borbalán has indeed a game in Saudi Arabia on Friday 25 November. He wont be in Europa League.
      Al Ahli Saudi Football Club – Al Hilal Saudi Football Club viernes 25 de noviembre de 2016 Hora: 16:00
      Árbitro: DAVID FERNÁNDEZ BORBALÁN Comité Territorial Andaluz
      Árbitro Asistente 1: RAÚL CABAÑERO MARTÍNEZ Comité Territorial Murciano
      Árbitro Asistente 2: JORGE CANELO PRIETO Comité Territorial Andaluz

      Delete
    7. My prediction for Celtic - Barca was Turpin, but his assistant referee is out on Tuesday as fourth official. I think we could expect Karasev.

      Delete
    8. About Ludogorets - Basel, I rather expect a Category 1 referee.

      Delete
    9. Regarding spaniards, I expect we will see Mateu Lahoz on MD6 (and should be with an "important" match, as I guess he has to be tested before WC) and won't see Fernández Borbalán, as he has had 2 games, while Mateu Lahoz remains the only one with one.

      Delete
    10. About Group A, I could imagine that for UEFA the Ludogorets game is even a bit more relevant as a) the 1st leg was difficult and b) it is a direct fight for UEL. Maybe we even see Rizzoli, who knows.

      Delete
    11. Any chances that Felix Brych gets Arsenal v Paris Saint-Germain?? Can't see too many clashes left for him other than Lyon v Sevilla on Matchday 6!!

      Delete
  4. The most important games in open groups go to Kuipers, Mazic and Clattenburg (all 3 of whom are expected)... A very good appointment for Collum as well... 😃

    1. Rosetti, Marko and Vassaras seem to be the most important observers in this Matchday.

      Delete
    2. Wasn't Bikas an important observer as well?? 😕

      Delete
    3. @Soham.

      Even thoughm this is his 3rd GS appointments, he usually observes experienced referees.

      Delete
    4. Edward is right, Bikas is appointed to observe experienced (mostly Elite) officials. The same can be said for Francesco Bianchi as well.
      Rosetti follows young referees with great potential, Vassaras is a committee member and Marko a former committee member but still with a very high importance.

  6. Shakhtar Donetsk last domestic match(19/11/2016)!
    Was it penalty at 2:06 ?

    1. Keeper seems to be late in his attempt to save the ball, making an unfair challenge on the opponent, penalty is justified.

      Delete
    2. Looks like a good call to me, certainly supportable, keeper doesn't appear to get much (if any) of the ball and collides with his opponent.

      Delete
  7. Given the appointments of Martin Strömbergsson and Buquet with committee members, one can easily expect Kulbakov in Atletico - PSV with Karlsson.

    1. Alternatively Soares, Vad or maybe Gil (@ Ray: any info whether Polish officials have CL MD5?)

      Delete
    2. No info from Polish FA this time, sorry.

  8. About Kralovec: Do you appoint referee you plan to demote to his third CL match? I don't think so. Last seasons, Tagliavento, Borbalan, Undiano were all appointed for only two, not so important, matches and never demoted. Even last season, Bebek and Tagliavento had only one CL match and were not demoted, Bebek was demoted after Istanbul. All in all I don't think Kralovec is considered for demotion. Maybe committee wants to "wake him up" with committee member as observer. Second, well politics is still very important in UEFA, and there is Mrs. Damkova to protect Kralovec if something goes wrong. Not only she is committee member but she is also FIFA instructor, which is very important in FIFA-UEFA relationship.
    I am more interested in Moen situation. I really wonder if we will see him on MD 5 or 6.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't really expect a demotion either and consider your "wake him up"-theory as not too bad.

      It's just that if someone like Elleray comes to a match after months / years (?) of absence as a UEFA observer apart from EURO 2016, the alarm bells should sound. I immediately had to remember Chapron in AC Milan - Zenit some years ago with Elleray. 7.9 (most likely) and he got demoted after this final test.

      Kralovec made (a) crucial mistake(s) in Ludogorets-PSG - no really important match. Then Legia-Madrid, which was probably expected to be less important than it turned out to be. Now Zagreb-Lyon, which was a stonewall 1st Group referee match if you ask me. I even predicted Mazeika in the Guess the Referee game. Do you need an Elite referee for Zagreb-Lyon? Someone who joined EURO 2016 and had some chances for WC 2014? Actually not. So I fear UEFA has some plans with him in any direction, either demotion or psyching him up.

      Indeed, Moen's situation is a bit more interesting and worrying for the referee concerned.

      Delete
    2. About Kralovec, we should add a not so good WC Qualifier on October (even though I don't know if it's too significant for UEFA).

      Delete
  9. Hello gents... What's the opinion on Mazic's appointment to Copenhagen v Porto and Kuipers' appointment to Monaco v Tottenham?? I think both are very important matches in terms of qualifications to a further round... Both groups are pretty much open even now!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, both matches are important, therefore one could expect top referees there, which Kuipers and Mazic certainly are.
      Matches like these probably can be estimated higher than the more sonorous matches, where only place 1 is on stake like Arsenal-PSG and Bayern-Atletico.

  11. Undiano booked Akinfeev (CSKA goalkeeper) for a clear foul outside the box, reported also by AR1. Correct decision to assess the situation as only SPA, no DOGSO. The attacker had kicked the ball toward the sideline, and there were other three defenders in penalty area. Goal was, however, empty.

    ReplyDelete

  12. First time, very well Undiano Mallenco.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Correct penalty in second half, I didn't watch the rest of the game. Hopefully it was good.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Interesting situation with the first goal in BOR-LEG. Was there a foul (push) prior to that?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Correct penalty awarded by Kuipers to Monaco at 9' mark... Monaco missed it..!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Correct sending off by Clattenburg, #22 SEV got his second YC in a few minutes.
    However, the first foul for which he was booked, was a revenge foul after a possible violent conduct by an opponent (hand in face), the player from Sevilla reacted a few later with a blatant foul. Clattenburg didn't punish the action by Cuadrado, I think a foul was possible there.

    ReplyDelete
  17. 37' - IMO correct no-penalty call in BOR-LEG. BVB player's handball in the box: short distance, hand close to the body, no chance to avoid this contact in my eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Atmosphere is not really hot in Sevilla, following a penalty decision by Clattenburg. A clear holding was punished. Sevilla coach should be sent off in my opinion, he is now out of control by fourth official.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not really hot or very hot?? Sevilla coach is just furious and was looking to kind of attack Clattenburg at the end of 1st half... The crowd booed Clattenburg and his team as well... I don't know what all these nonsense is about... In my opinion Clattenburg was absolutely spot-on as far as the sending off and penalty decisions are concerned!!

      Delete
    2. Another referee wouldn't have had the same personality of Clattenburg, do you agree? Really hot stadium and incredible pressure.

      Delete
    3. It was a blatant dive by Juventus. Crucial mistake by Clattenburg right after a correct second yellow card. Second half will be a nightmare.

      Delete
    4. I agree about Clattenburg's firm personality helping him in this heated game... But I believe calm and composed heads like Çakır, Kuipers, Skomina or Eriksson would have handled it equally well... What do you think Chefren??

      Delete
    5. @victor Didn't Clattenburg award the penalty for holding?? Seemed to be a bit of holding there that led me to think that Clattenburg got the decision correct!! 😕

      Delete
    6. @Soham Yes, different styles. Çakır, Kuipers, Skomina or Eriksson would have handled perhaps in a different way the game, but still without being affected by crowd and benches. Here, for a young / not so experienced referee, this would have been a nightmare.

      Delete
    7. The penalty was given for a holding, however there was a bit of confusion in penalty area and at first glance it looked not so clear. But the replay confirmed the correct decision by the English. Problem is that very often such fouls are not adequately punished, so when a referee whistles, it is seen almost like a mistake, and always an "easy call". But it isn't, committee wants that, so absolutely right by Clattenburg.

      Delete
    8. "Easy" in the meaning of "soft"

      Delete
    9. @Chefren I absolutely agree with you... This game is not for the young, inexperienced referees... Would've become an absolute nightmare for them particularly in the 2nd half!!

      Delete
    10. @soham. The first replay angle looks like a penalty. But they showed the birds view replay after the penalty was scored and then it was very clear that it was a huge dive and no contact when he fell. Also he punched the Sevilla player in the face before he dived.

      Delete
    11. @victor Wow, that's really interesting... Please share the video with us if you find one... Will be very interesting to find out how the observer Mr. Ilgaz will evaluate this decision!!

      Delete
    12. I am really looking because that replay view was showen after the goal instead of traditionally before the penalty.

      Delete
    13. Thanks!! Will be very nice if you manage to find it... 😃

      Delete
  19. Kuipers didn't punish an action by Harry Kane at 43'... I would agree with the reason that it seemed an accident... Not deliberate!!

    1. Yes fair and acceptable call by Kuipers... that never seemed deliberate... more of an accident!!

      Delete
  20. Intense match for Clattenburg...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Good first half from Collum in Lisbon. Good foul detection for my taste. The last few minutes the match got a bit hectical, but Collum always stayed calm and correctly booked Marcelo for SPA right before the PA and strongly warned a player from Sporting for protests after a correct free kick.

    AR1 with an excellent onside call before the 0:1. Really good call!
    AR2 helped Collum in a difficult situation in 39': Foul from Marcelo and YC because of SPA. I think Collum wasn't sure wether he should award a PK or a FK. Good input from AR2 and correct decision.

    Overall a good performance by the Scots.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 64' RC Perreira for VC. There wasn't a clear replay, so I would trust AR1 who stood about 1 metre away.
      79' Correct PK for Sporting. It was a silly handball from Coentrao, the PK was clearly called by AAR2, I think Collum wasn't sure if the ball touched the hand.

      I didn't see a clear wrong mistake, perhaps some small ones but nothing big.So I would call it a solid performance with quite good controlling the game.

      Delete
    2. Sorry, penalty called by AAR1 Madden :)

      Delete
  22. After rewatching incidents from BOR-LEG
    - missed foul prior to 0-1 (10')
    - missed YC for SPA in 19'
    - handball could have been penalised (making himself a little bit bigger) but a penalty would be too harsh in my opinion, so I tend to support Strombergsson and maybe also AR2 (37')

    Good control, advantage use and assistants.

  23. Monaco 1 Tottenham 1 Not penalty........

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Why not?? Clear holding and perfectly understandable penalty there!!

      Delete
    2. The UEFA scorecard's live commentary seems to articulate similar thoughts as mine : "Penalty awarded to Tottenham!

      Glik grabs the arm of Dele Alli in the penalty box and hauls him down. No hestitation from the keeper - a yellow card and a penalty."

      I don't know what the keeper has to do here but the main thing I wanted to point out is that there was clear holding and thus perfect call by Kuipers IMO!!

      Delete
  24. Kuipers having an exciting game at Monaco... 0-0 at half time and suddenly it's 2-1 at 50' mark... 3 goals in 5 minutes... Tottenham's goal came off a penalty kick which was a correct decision by Kuipers IMO... 1 YC for that offense as well... Crazy start to the 2nd half at Monaco!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Finally Sevilla's coach was dismissed by Clattenburg, but if you ask me, Ian Hussin was always too passive.

    1. Wow... He still continued with his tantrums?? Good decision by Clattenburg in that case!!

    1. It is indeed not 100% clear but one can assume that the violent conduct existed. We must trust assistant referee, however very often for such "hidden" acts, I mean 50-50, RC is not shown. So I would praise the Scottish team if this was an excellent decision.

      Delete
    2. The fist goes into the stomach. As the camera is zooming in at the moment of the contact, it is not clearly visible, but it existed.

  27. Bayer Leverkusen - Monaco on MD6 is the first game without any interest for the standings. French team already group winner, German already runner up.
    A debut is possible and the match is also fascinating on the paper.
    Second option for a debut: Juventus - Dinamo Zagreb. In this case with a draw Juventus could lose the first place, but this will not easily happen, Sevilla should win in Lyon at the same time. So we can expect surely a Category 1 in Turin, and very likely a debut.
    Lyon - Sevilla will be more than a hot game, especially after today. Which referee could be there?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For Lyon-Sevilla it should be Eriksson, because Marciniak and the Italians are not possible.
      Who are the candidate for debuts? I would consider Mazeika, maybe also Delferiere.
      Also not impossible to see someone like Schörgenhofer or Yefet in these games, I think.

      Delete
    2. Indeed, Eriksson seems to be the only experienced Elite available for Lyon - Sevilla, another option could be Karasev. Possible or too much for him?
      Rizzoli could be appointed in Real Madrid - Borussia Dortmund.
      About the debuts, I expected Kruzliak, regular appointments in Europa League and also KO stage by years: "problem" is that he will officiate tomorrow in Europa League but we can't exclude he could get another appointment in two weeks, even though it would the fourth.
      Delferiere, differently from other referees, has not still officiated at least one game in EL KO stage.
      Apart from Mazeika, I don't see other names, in all other cases it would be an unexpected choice.

    1. 10': no foul, for me correct decision to play on
      20': yes, for me YC, it was a promising attack
      36': no penalty, correct decision
      88': very good management...
      89': trying to stop the video, it seems that the action by defender is on the ball, however impossible to make judgments.

      Delete
    2. I agree with everything you've said but the first situation is a clear foul for my taste. Careless forearm/elbow push/hit in the neck.

      Delete
    3. I would like to say that apart from the controversies posted above, Mr. Strömbergsson looked very firm, cool and fit. His body language and mimics were great as well as his fitness. He also excellently booked one player for dissent. Judging by yesterday's game, he is ready for promotion to the Elite Group.

      Delete
    4. I have to agree with RayHD - apart from a good performance in a surreal match, the 0:1 should not have counted. I can understand why he let it flow and yesterday evening I tended to support his decision, but such a careless hand contact in the neck/throat area has to be whistled.

      Where I disagree is the promotion to Elite. Such matches (Lyon-Zagreb, Dortmund-Legia) cannot be enough for the last step. He is a promising candidate for summer, but I don't see him in Elite at the moment. He actually did not have any real test so far. Additionally the committee members might also be there to check some referees for the UEFA mini tournaments next year, such as U-21 EURO instead of checking every possible referee for a promotion. I think the only ones with real chances to move to Elite are, at the moment, Makkelie and maybe Zwayer.

      Delete
    5. 10': foul, the yellow player took the position and was ready to jump and play the ball with his head when the white player run into him and pushed him with his arm. The push caused the yellow player to loose balance and disabled him from playing the ball;
      20': YC for SPA;
      36': no handball, no PK;
      88': good management, correct YC
      89': seems like no PK

  31. I made some clips of the CSKA vs. Leverkusen and the Sevilla vs. Juventus matches on the basis of situations mentioned in the posts above and situations which were retrieved from the UEFA live feeds. I didn't see these matches live, so there is a possibility that relevant situations are missing.

    1. Thanks a lot, DutchRef.

      I think Clattenburg slightly lost the overview and became a bit fussy at the end of the first half. He seemed a bit unaware of the impact of his decisions on the crowd and perceived balance between both teams (and therefore also on his perceived impartiality).

      An example is 45+2/3: When the ball was in the air, he actually whistled for a half-time. He whistled twice. At the same moment, a light foul occurred which made the crowd and players furious. Therefore he flexibly decided to award them the free-kick, warned the Juventus player, allowed the free-kick to be taken but immediately whistled for half-time when it was in play again. Apart from the fact that he had already stopped for half-time earlier, it appeared slightly tactless and tactically unclever.

    2. Thank you, DutchRef. It seems as if it was a really challenging night for Clattenburg. Comparing the cautions in 24' and 72' with the arm challenge in 31' (before 1st YC for Vazquez) it should be at least a foul whistle - and then Vazquez could stay on field some minutes later and Clattenburg probably would not have such a challenging night. Furthermore these clips make clear that the 4th official had absolutely no control over the SEV bench.

    3. CSKA Moscow - Bayer Leverkusen (Alberto Undiano Mallenco):
      37': correct YC to the goal keeper for the SPA, no DOGSO
      74': correct PK and YC
      76': according to players' reactions, I would say YC only

      Sevilla - Juventus (Mark Clattenburg):
      24'- unless there were similar fouls/incidents earlier in the game (this particular one happened in 25') no YC, but strong verbal warning.
      31'- missed foul and YC to blue 7 (elbow) which led to the foul of the white 22. Knowing Clatenbourg and his criteria this was too soft so no YC. I think he was little fuzzy here and issued the YC in order to calm down the situation and maintain integrity;
      36'- YC, but in the given circumstances no second YC;
      45'+1'- if isolated, this incident is a PK. But, I firmly believe there were other similar or the same incidents on corner kicks in the match and those were not assessed in the same way. Therefore I see this as lack of application of same criteria to both teams;
      45'+2' / correct decision to send off the coach
      72'- Clatenbourg did not see the elbow it was the AR2 who told him about it (excellent job). Please note, that if Clatenbourg issued a YC to blue 7 for the incident in 31', which he should have, that this would have been the 2nd YC to blue 7. Also, please note that in the beginning of the video incident 45+2 blue 7 received verbal warning (and to me he is known by using arms, elbows...)... Clats was amazingly calm in such heated atmosphere, but made some mistakes...

  32. BTW as noone mentioned it so far - Buquet's penalty was 100% obvious and correct. 2 correctly disallowed goals for offside at the end of the game, Débart's situation was difficult (good that he recovered from his UEL blackout), Cano's situation was quite easy.

  33. About Collum's penalty - the attacker clearly handled the ball so that Coentrao had some reason to raise his arms (unnaturally ;)). Was the first handball deliberate? Should it be whistled?

  34. I checked all the incidents in Kuipers game. Well done on both penalties assigned, but... are we sure that this was a not deliberate act?

    1. I must agree with you, can't find reasons for which Glik stepped on the opponent. I was a bit astonished because Kuipers was really close.

    2. I agree with both of you, RC for VC :)

    3. We can't be entirely sure that this was a deliberate action... Obviously Kuipers decided the same as well and I think it's acceptable... Looked more like an accident to me rather than deliberate.. Maybe a YC would've been okay but RC while not being sure would've been too harsh... The action wasn't entirely deliberate in my opinion...

    4. No real protest from Tottenham players either!! I find the call acceptable to be honest... Anyway if it's considered a mistake then what will be the referee's marks in that case??

    5. @Soham.

      7.9 maximum.

    6. Depends on Rune Peterson on how he assesses it... 😀 I think no protest by Tottenham players will be taken into account...
      Any idea what should be Mark Clattenburg's marks in Seville yesterday??

      "I think no protest by Tottenham players will be taken into account..."

      Are you serious? We are talking about a mistake. Should we ask the players if they are protesting about it and then call it a mistake? Please, be reasonable.

    8. Observers often justify decisions in various ways... Isn't that how Mateu Lahoz and a certain Serbian are still doing round??
      And as far as I'm concerned it's not a RC, it was accidental so I'm anyway supporting the referee here irrespective of whether there were protests or not... No mistake for me but ultimately what matters is what Mr. Pederson decides!!

    9. Rune Pedersen, not Pederson or Peterson :)

    10. Autocorrect has let me down in both the instances 😛
