  1. Why there are not French observers in France like it is usual and in all the other match destinations too? (Ellingham in Paris, Hamer in Lyon)

    1. Well, perhaps there weren't available observers from France for these matches. However, it is not a written rule of course.

      It seems as Kabakov had a quite challenging game, how many cards.

  2. Jacottet and his AR1 Jobin with a controversial penalty whistle in favor of VAL some minutes ago (81'). Otherwise a good performance as far as I could see but I did not watch the whole game. Anyway I think Jacottet is definitely a referee with a lot of potential, probably the biggest Swiss hope besides Sandro Schärer who is in the second group too (but Schärer is 5 years younger).

    1. Missed goal by Jacottet and AR during PSO, first penalty by Valencia.
      That's, I'm sorry, a too huge mistake.

    2. I wrote my positive words for Jacottet before the penalty shoot-out. Very huge mistake of course, not good for his future...

    3. Valencia has announced that they will appeal the penalty: http://www.superdeporte.es/valencia/2016/02/23/valencia-impugnara-partido-hay-precedente/287417.html

      Frankly, for me it should be repeated. And I would not blame so much the referee but specially the AR.
