  1. Some really interesting and promising names among the appointed referees. Good to see Gräfe back on European Stage. I guess we'll see some more debuts on MD6, a hot shot could be Tobias Stieler from Germany, who showed really consistent performances over the last couple of months and with Fandel being in the committee.. Who knows.

    ReplyDelete
  2. One strange thing, you can read also on uefa.com in both English appointments AAR1 is an assistant referee, while fourth official a referee. Very likely, there were communications problems by English FA in sending the names.
    The correct appointments should be like that:
    Legia - Midtjylland
    Referee: Andre Marriner (ENG)
    Assistant Referee 1: Michael Mullarkey (ENG)
    Assistant Referee 2: John Brooks (ENG)
    Additional Assistant Referee 1: Lee Mason (ENG)
    Additional Assistant Referee 2: Robert Madley (ENG)
    Fourth Official: Michael Salisbury (ENG)

    Sparta Praha - Asteras
    Referee: Michael Oliver (ENG)
    Assistant Referee 1: Stuart Burt (ENG)
    Assistant Referee 2: Gary Beswick (ENG)
    Additional Assistant Referee 1: Craig Pawson (ENG)
    Additional Assistant Referee 2: Paul Tierney (ENG)
    Fourth Official: Lee Betts (ENG)

  3. Still missing referee for PAOK - Qabala.
    Debut for Meshkov.
    Mateu Lahoz in EL can be easily explained by the fact that he had almost no options for a third CL appearance. Out from 5 groups, he already handled matches in two of the remaining groups.

    1. I do wonder why an Elite Referee is needed in Azerbaijan.

      Delete
    2. Well, Edward, I disagree. I think that it is still a good appointment for Sidiropoulos. Don't forget that he already got three matches in CL (even though the third one was a replacement). He could have been easily ruled out, but he gets a very important clash in this group. Take a look at the standings, all four teams can still qualify. Qarabag showed often a good football, and one year ago they were definitely unlucky with the last decision, I don't know if you remember what happened. That's my explanation, it is a sensible appointment.
      On another note, do you think it is possible to see Koukoulakis in CL for his last international game on MD6?

      Delete
    3. Group B would have been the other choice, at MD5 or MD6.

      Delete
    4. Well, Chefren, you have a good point. Perhaps I was influenced by the home team since we are not used to these teams in EL.

      Koukoulakis was announced to have a match on MD6. But HFF didn't say specifically if it's an CL or EL. So IMO he could get a CL as a farewell gift.

  4. UEFA update: Due to safety reasons there won't be any visitors at Club Brugge - SSC Napoli, handled by Andre Marriner.

  5. Penalty for Krasnodar: inside or outside?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Arnold Hunter

    So-so performance under Rosetti's eye. Some phantom fouls whistled but also missed two bad fouls of Tetteh (Lech; one of them deserved a mandatory yellow card) and a foul close to the Lech penalty area in the dying stages of the game. 8.2 or 8.1. To add, one very debatable flag by AR1 (44').

  7. OT: Just out of curiosity, what is the highest & lowest mark you've all come across in UEFA/FIFA reports for a referee and why

    1. I may not say who was it, but there was 9.0 for one of Polish assistants in CL and 6.0 for a main referee in UEFA Cup.

      Delete
  8. André Marriner

    Allowed very physical play and missed some fouls due to that. Strong penalty appeal from Midtjylland (47'). Not much respected by players. Again 8.2 would be a maximum for me. Three debatable assistants' calls (18', 59', 85').

  9. What do you have to say about Yefet's decision to award an IFK against Liverpool at min. 33? Brave or too pedantic?

    1. I didn't see this video, therefore my comment could be a little subjective , but I know the Yefet style of refereeing and for my it will be not surprise that here will be to much pedantic decision.

    2. If I saw it well last night, the goalkeeper kept the ball in his arms app. 15 seconds. The decision was brave and correct.

    6. I did find the video. OK, I agree about decision with goalkeeper, but here are a lot of other question about managament this game.

      Delete
    7. That call was absolutely spot-on, no doubt, but he was really bad throughout the whole game. Whistling way too often and hindering the Football. Again, really, really bad job.

      Delete
  10. Andreas Ekberg with a good performance in a not that challenging match for most of the time. He was not challenged for 75 minutes. The biggest challenge for the team was detecting corner kicks, Schalke had 12 corners in the first half... he made a promising impression and could be a good referee for the future, there is much prospect, his personality seems to be sophisticated.
    However, he missed 1 yellow card and most important he gave a penalty kick for deliberate handball in 89' which was, IMO, wrong. The arm was not that significantly outstretched, the APOEL player even tried to avoid the contact by pulling the arm away, the distance was not that large and the speed of the ball was high (little reaction time). Mistake for me.

    Raczkowski missed a penalty in Villarreal, Gözübüyük's penalty decision is not 100% clear (but not clearly wrong either). Didn't see more.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Avram in Club Brugge - Napoli.
    Overall, a good performance under the eyes of an important observer like Plautz. I must say he was very strict, merely applying the LotG. Despite of a quite fair first half, three cards were issued. The first was correct, for a SPA (reported also by AR2), then a holding (even though not that blatant) in the midfield. The third (Maggio) was for dissenting behavior against the AAR2 following a penalty appeal. It was correct to play on, so good decision. The card is correct but could sound harsh when you see that many players act in the same manner against AARs but they are not adequately punished. This is the reason for which I say that referee was very strict. It wasn't a blatant protest.
    Aso thank to this approach, second half was easier, with only one moment of real tension, when referee showed the fourth and last card of the game, before the execution of a free kick, for unsporting behavior. He was there, close to the scene and he saw everything.
    Assistant referees were faultless, 9 offside calls against home-team and all were correct decisions. In addition to that, one or two remarkable onsides by both. Good cooperation with referee.
    I would go for a 8.4 / 8.5 / 8.5 / 8.4 / 8.4 / 84.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I didn't watch Kruzliak in Basel - Fiorentina but it is reported he had a not good performance with one possible crucial mistake and a persisent lack of disciplinary control.
    The major situation is a penalty appeal by Fiorentina at the beginning, minute 00:20 in this video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG88uFVDG5A
    Handball during a tackle, the overall impression is that the player deliberately puts the ball away. For me, penalty.
    Another situation is the sending off of a player from Fiorentina (violent conduct, elbow):
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXVcpgaaOMg
    In this case, nothing to say, absolutely correct by referee.
    The first goal by Basel seems to be tight offside, minute 03:10 in the previous video.
    A player from Basel was reported committing 8 or 9 fouls but escaping from a mandatory second YC.

    1. Quite interesting situation. IMO no penalty and correct referee decision. Most interesting was AR1 decision about offside on 9 minute. Wait and see !

  14. Villareal - Rapid / Pawel Raczkowski (POL)

    Unfortunately I could watch only the first half when he did overall a good job. Definitely a young referee with very good requirements and a promising future. But as Niclas already said he missed a penalty in favor of Rapid. Furthermore I have some doubts on his first caution (probably in co-operation with AR1 and AAR1) - if he whistles it is absolutely mandatory but I am not sure if it was a foul. I don't think so but "in dubio pro referee". I heard about a second controversial card in the 2nd half but I did not see the situation myself so far.

    All in all a moderate performance by the Polish but with clear potential and quality too.

    1. 4 weeks FIFA tournament might be a reason. The physical stress on top officials is enormous at the moment.

    2. I wish a soon recover. That is a pity. Only one CL in this group stage for him, due to U17 WC, and now this injury. I guess he had been appointed for a CL match in MD6, he will be replaced. We will see which referee will get the fourth overall appearance. Alternatively, this could mean room for a Category 1 referee with only two matches until now, making some switching here and there.

      Delete
  16. No committee member as observer in CL MD6 (except Peter Mikkelsen in Leverkusen-Barca, who fulfills that role for FIFA). More next days.

    ReplyDelete
  17. One spanish team has been appointed for next week, as Velasco's usual AR1 (Roberto Alonso) has been replaced on the match they had on monday due to an international appointment.

    My bet is that it will be Fernández Borbalán as he has only handled one CL match this season.

  18. Dear Niklas
    When do you expect to have the new lists for 2016? Do you know is it already known? And if not when ref committee is going to have meeting about that?
    Many thanks in advance...

  19. OT: Next top clash for Stieler. He has been appointed for VfL Wolfsburg- Bor. Dortmund on saturday. It's already the tenth match for him, the fourth in a row. Not even Brych has got already ten matches.

    2. Very bad performance from Stieler. Bad foul detection, no advantage when needed, no penalty whatsoever... Diisapointing.

    3. @Nole: I don't think so. Apart from a missed 2nd YC for Arnold a solid performance with just small and unimportant mistakes.

  20. Reading on uefa.com, Referees Committee has a meeting in Nyon on next 8 December (the first day of MD6 for CL). I think that in this occasion, along with the update of categories, committee could confirm the names for EURO 2016.
    Four years ago, in 2011, there was a meeting on 20 December and the names for EURO 2012 were released the same day.

    1. Thank you. It explains why there are any observers from committee on MD6. On the other hand it seems that they've already made their choice, otherwise they could use MD6 too. I think they will update the UEFA categories too, maybe they will reduce especially the elite group. We'll see.

    1. In my opinion RC was the wrong decision or at least too strict. Sure that was a tackle with high intensity, but overall the contact with the bent left leg wasn't enough for a RC. If Boenisch hits the opponent with the right stretched leg, a RC would be satisfied.

      Delete
    2. I like the call taking into account that the leg was straightened and clearly raised with studs up. It endangered the safety of an opponent. Such tackles should be kicked out of the football stadiums.

    3. I agree with Ref_1707. Too strict, YC was a good choice.

    4. Hellmut Krug (member of the Referee Comission in Germany)confirmed in DFB's 'Videoblog' that YC would have been the right decision.
