  2. (Continuing from Confed Cup thread which has maxed out comments)
    Right. I hesitate to comment on al-Midarsi, as I've only seen DutchRef's videos and, as good as they are, they are not the full match. But I must say that what I've seen does not really fit with what everyone is saying above. What I see above all is a young referee - 32 years old, with a good eye, and decent potential. Is he the real deal now? No, but with a few years learning under Clattenburg, he could become an excellent referee.

    To me, the VAR review at 14' is a model of how it should be. Reasonably quick, efficient, correct, well accepted. I still wish the VAR had given the decision to avoid wasting time (was there really any doubt?) but still, well done.
    Most decisions after that are ok. There's the obvious mess at 96', where you wonder why the VAR did not recommend review, but apart from that things are ok. He needs to learn to manage players, but most referees struggle with that (after the 103' penalty, he walks towards a disappointed player, inviting discussion, and tells him to stop it, for instance - mass confrontation another - he somewhat inflames things, although sensing the confrontation is good).

    The decision not to go to the VAR on the last penalty appeal is good in my sense as it is too ambiguous, although it is terrible for FIFA: of course, everyone will interpret the images their way and feel vindicated by the VAR ("if the incompetent ref had used it, we'd have a penalty" would be the Mexican line...).

    Some reported al-Midarsi seemed afraid; I don't see that from the excerpts, although I of course missed much of the match. I think the VAR use at 14' was good (and I don't think he could see it, as counterattacks are always a blind spot for referees); less good at 96', and tragically correct at 118' (as in, he did it right but will get lambasted anyway). Is he ready for 2018? Probably not, but give the kid some time. He's the same age as Andreas Ekberg and Michael Oliver, and he doesn't compare too badly to either of them (weaker body language than Oliver, but he's not miles behind either overall). By 2022 he'll be ready if Clattenburg does his job well.

  5. Same goes to Bojan Nikolic (SRB) but i dont think he can do much in FIFA since he is 42y old. Still Danilo Grujic is not on FIFA list when he is our second best referee.

    1. According to UEFA and FIFA database, Bojan Nikolić is 37 years old (24/10/1979).

    2. Oh ye he is 37, Aleksandar Vasic is 41y old.. My mistake, but i dont know what you can do in 41y old in Europe when you dont have any FIFA/UEFA matchs..

      Delete
    3. How is it possible to enter the FIFA list being 41 yo?

      Delete
    4. If I'm not wrong this was a part of the changes about age limits, now a referee can join FIFA list at all ages.
