  2. Hi Chefren and Niclas, can you post in the dedicated session the actual list of the perspective referees for the next FIFA world Cup 2018 ? All the name who attended in the latest months the dedicated courses.

  3. I will try to.

    What went on in Ireland-Slovakia?...

    1. Anonymous1/4/15 01:21

      The website of the FAI sais "We were outstanding in the second half. Our attacking after the break was excellent. Slovakia had a couple of chances too. It was probably it was just as well it ended what it did as the discipline seemed to have gone from the game."

      Wow. If Aghayev got all these decisions right it could be a massive breakthrough. EL next season?

    3. Anonymous1/4/15 13:20

      Then the observer would maybe think, what about player management? 10 yellow in second half. Could the referee be more proactive?

      Nothing changes with one match but if the referee got the decisions right and the observer was very happy with his performance the mark is high. We hope that's the case.

    Agree with Niclas. What went on in this match, Republic of Ireland - Slovakia? Niclas, info from Germany?

  6. Anonymous1/4/15 23:46

    Mark and report for Kuipers at Stamford Bridge?

  7. Anonymous2/4/15 15:19


    In the final Mario Diks will be AR1 and Hessel Steegstra AR2.

    1. In UEFA's network it is communicated differently. Are you sure?

    2. Anonymous2/4/15 21:16

      This is how Uefa have communicated it to the KNVB. But I believe you.

    Off Topic: Official: Referee Jérôme Efong Nzolo (B) stopped his career.

    Invited to pass physical tests for the 4th time this season, Jérôme Efong Nzolo, who had already missed three previous tests, not did before his peers, this Thursday.
    In a post shared on the social network Twitter, Franck De Bleeckere, Belgian referees boss, explained that Jérôme Efong Nzolo (40) had decided to put an end to his career.


    1. Thank you, Mr. Nzolo for your international and domestic service!

  9. Who wants some interesting video situations to comment on for Easter? :)

    Norwegian cup back in 2012.


    1: Reckless, excessive force or violent conduct? 0:55
    2: Foul and what card? 1:20
    3: DOGSO? 1:35

    Enjoy :)

    1. Anonymous3/4/15 22:46

      1: YC is ok, still reckless
      2: foul, YC is acceptable but RC wouldn't be mistake imho
      3: yes, DOGSO and RC

  10. Anonymous4/4/15 00:04

    Paweł Raczkowski has been appointed for UEFA U-17 Euro.


    1. Thanks, see the new post.

  11. Anonymous5/4/15 03:11

    Arnold Hunter NIR made much awaited comeback from injury on Saturday after being injured UEL MD4 in Helsinki. He will officiate again on Tuesday.
    Any more news on Daniel Stefanski POL?

    1. Anonymous10/4/15 20:33

      Stefański is back in Ekstraklasa.

  12. Overall, in my opinion, a good performance by Shmuelevitz in a not difficult match. A YC for simulation at 69' was correctly issued. Not major issues.
    Regarding Gil Manzano: very likely he missed a penalty in first half.

    1. Anonymous11/4/15 19:32

      In which minute has Gil Manzano missed a penalty?. On the other hand, how was he performance?. I couldn´t see the match and I would like to know your impressions about him. Thanks in advance.
