  1. With Šimkus appointed as fourth official on 22/06, Mažeika should then get a game in group C with Madden (the Scottish will officiate today in group B).
    So Ivan Kružliak and Slavko Vinčić for group B last ties.

    1. Predictions:
      SRB-ESP: Kruzliak (SVK); Foltyn (GER)
      MKD-POR: Mazeika (LTU); Hassan (ISR)
      CZE-DEN: Madden (SCO); Borkowski (POL)
      ITA-GER: Vincic (SVN); Obukowicz (POL)

      I have a feeling that Mazeika will get a match in group B despite Simkus' appointment - but of course all speculation.

      Delete
    2. Agreed - these would be the best appointments imo, probably Madden and Mažieka are swaped though

      Delete
  2. Even if England-Poland sounds more attractive, Slovakia-Sweden is surely the more important game. Last Matchday, a direct duel for the 2nd place in group A, definitely a challenging task for Gil Manzano and his team.

    1. Yes and against this background, it was a good move to appoint Lechner for the more "sonorous" game on paper, with Gil Manzano as a slightly more experienced referee in charge of the more important group decider.

    6. Let's return to English language. ;-)

      According to the following website for Vorarlberg, Chris Hunter will act as Fourth Official at Trepca'89 - Vikingur instead of Andy Hot:

      Delete
    7. Indeed. I confused the appointments - Andy Hot is the fourth official of Markus Hameter (in German Schinkeneter?), Hunter assists Ouschan. Nice to meet some Austrian here - do you see Lechner & team tonight?

      Delete
    8. It took me some seconds to realise who Hunter and Hot actually are :) Nice joke!

      Maybe I'll watch second half of Lechner a little bit.
      I actually prefer the Confed-Cup with the futuristic VAR and a quite lenient Faghani.

      Delete
  7. Very satisfying performance by Gözübüyük and his team. Having watched with 1,5 eyes, he really made a good impression - disciplinary control, player management and body language were all quite good.

    Assumed Gil Manzano, Stieler and 1 or 2 other officials are sent home after group stage, my first prediction would be: Gözübüyük for the final, Bastien and X (Vincic? Lechner? Kruzliak?) for the semifinals.

    1. Vincic is one of the most expierienced referees there and had a very good first game. I hope he can convince in his second appointment as well, then I'm sure we'll see him again.

  8. Very good match again from Gozubuyk and his team. Totally full control. I like his style and attitude. For me Gozubuyk, Stieler, Vincic the candidates next match

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'm quite sure that in case of good performance in Italy - Germany, Slavko Vinčić will get the final of the tournament. He had the most challenging game and his performance was more than very good. A pity the missed offside by AR2...

    Referees joining CONCACAF Gold Cup 2017

    1. Thanks for the info.
      Will the TARP referees be used as 4th officials? Or what is their role?

      Delete
    2. TARP referees are part of the development strategy of the Confederation to provide an opportunity of working with elite officials in order to prepare them for future competitions.

      So I think that they won't be considered for appointments, maybe as fourth official but I tend to think they'll use just the referees for those, as eighteen group matches and seventeen (why not eighteen, but...) referees will surely lose sharpness having only one match. It is a nice trial anyway for the 11 TARP group.

      Delete
    3. Interesting to see that CONCACAF is more and more focussing on referees from the bigger footballing nations and inviting less officials from the Caribbean regions. Formerly, there were many officials from diverse nations such as Jamaica, Trinidad, Suriname, Guyana, Barbados etc. Now, there are only a few names.

      Delete
    4. Niclas is that a positive thing or a negative thing?

      Delete
    5. If it heightens the quality of refereeing, it is surely no negative thing.

      Delete
  13. After the second half in ESP-MKD, once again I'm observing a too passive approach from Lechner. Two stamps, one attack on the head - no (public) warning. Missed obligatory YC to #4 POL for reckless tackle, again no warning...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually, these are two-three obligatory yellow cards missed, one rough tackle assessed as legal and a too passive approach regarding fouls. We are already in the 8.0-8.1 area...

      Delete
    2. Two minutes of second half played and two possible yellow cards not shown.

      Delete
    3. Good onside from AR2 at 2-0 goal.

      Delete
    4. My impression after 20min watched: Not that good but not bad either. Some small mistakes but nothing big. Lechner once said in an interview: "If you want to realise the big breakthrough in your career, you have to be lucky and to be at the right place at the right time." Today, this isn't his day.

      Generally, I think that Lechner isn't the top-referee who Austrian Committee is looking for. There are some talented guys like Schüttengruber, Weinberger, Jäger, Harkam and Ouschan, but I think that nobody of them will get through to the top. They are talented and solid referees, but nothing more IMO.

      Delete
    5. BTW Heidenreich is AR1 and Kolbitsch AR2. They are swapped in the appointmend above.

      Delete
    6. Quite aggressive management in 78'. A certain power is needed, of course, but I think one could solve this situation calmer.

      Delete
    7. Correct penalty in 82'. But I think that the second yellow wasn't needed in this situation.

      Delete
    8. I've seen 2nd half as well. I think, David summarized it well: Not good but not bad either. Not really to much to do, but I wasn't really happy with his management of the two most important situations which lead to the 2nd YC (78', 82'). Even if I know this quite aggressive management by Lechner (like in 78'), I think the whole situation wasn't managed well. The 2nd YC (82' - SPA?) was, according to the 'new' LOTG, not necessary, for me even a crucial mistake.

      David, in general I think Lechner has some talent, more than Schörgenhofer, Ouschan, Drachta, Schüttengruber or your compatriot Hameter. Actually, I see Harkam ahead, it's a pity he stays in second group for years. Anyway, Lechner never will get to the elite group, I fear. The next could be Weinberger, Gishamer and Ciochirca if they should continue their good development of the last years.

      Delete
    9. I'm also wondering why Harkam never gets important international matches, because domestically he is a really good referee. The other ones are talented and solid referees, but not good enough for the top.
      Let's see how Weinberger, Gishamer and Ciochirca will develop. I think that Weinberger has the bigger chances, but that's only my view.

      Delete
    10. Harkam had some sonorous YouthLeague games (but never with 'important' observers), last year Jozef Marko observed him in the Europa League Quali. But well - seems as if he wasn't so impressive.
      Agree at Weinberger, I think he will replace Hameter at the FIFA list in January.

      Delete
    11. Hameter hasn't a big future in FIFA, therefore it would be logical to replace him, as it happened with Eisner and Grobelnik too.

      Delete
  14. Correct penalty kick, but was that a (2nd) yellow card? Assumed he deemed it as SPA - was it an attempt to play the ball?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Good performance of Gil Manzano in Slovakia-Sweden. An easy-going game without any problems for the refereeing team, in full control from first to last whistle and - as always - very good positioning and walking style. Two correct and indisputable YC's for reckless tackles.
    Point to consider is the way of issuing public warnings. Gil Manzano talked to Olsson twice, but the Swedish captain didn't show much interest in the talks. A stronger and more persuasive attitude should be helpful.
    Quite a few offside decisions had to be taken, and every single one seemed okay.
    All in all a well deserved 8.4 in my opinion.

      My mark to Lechner is 8.0. Way too passive approach leading to more fouls than needed. Missed at least three obligatory yellow cards. 8.5 to AR1.

    2. A remark on the onside video (the 2:0 goal): It seems as if Lechner had some problems to follow the game with high acceleration and sprints there. Quite far away, 25-30m..

    3. Penalty and second YC situation - IMO the YC not needed. Here were not promising attack becouse in the moment of the offence the other defender was ready to interfiere.

      Delete
  17. Mažeika improved his management a bit. He was able to issue two warnings at the beginning. Perhaps they were too 'soft', but still better than nothing.

    Two key match incidents, the first being Spain's penalty appeal that I think was more dive than a defender's foul, the second being second yellow card to #9 SRB for illegal use of arm. No choice for Mažeika just to send him off. A straight red card wouldn't have been wrong either, in my opinion.

    1. The second YC for SRB on 40 min was clear IMO.

  18. Kruzliak so far with an overall good performance in a calm game. There were a few good advantages which he has given and I'm impressed by his fitness, especially by his sprinting abilities. There was a mass confrontation in minute 32, but things were resolved quite quickly and the match re-gained the calmness. Just before half-time, we could discuss about a potential missed YC to a Macedonian after pulling the shirt of his Portuguese opponent.
    Videos to follow in a moment.

  19. What a finish in MKD-POR!
    Kruzliak's second half started with a very good YC for a foul off the ball, resulting in a free kick for Portugal (49'). There were further two high boot challenged correctly punished with a YC (63' and 86'). As well as in the first half there were a few good advantages given. But Kruzliak tarnished his performance with a very controversial - if not wrong - straight RC to POR19 for SFP (90+2'). In the replays, I could not see something which could suggest an SFP offence. There were also cautions for time wasting (MKD12, 88') and dissent (POR4, 90+6')

    Unfortunately, the YouTube stream decided to disappear suddenly when I was trying to make the clips, so no clips for now. I try to find the match somewhere else to make clips from the reported incidents. But for now, it looks for me like a 7.9 (8.4) performance by Kruzliak.

  20. Kruzliak!! What a bad management second half. First half was good, missed one clear yellow card For shirt pulling. Second half no good management. Please K.S. Or Ray can you please show The red card situation. For me NO RED CARD!! He gave totally 6 min extra, official extra 4, it could be disaster when Portugal score. Good pro action in the penalty area. But second half i am disappointed. Can you imagine he do this in CL?

      The same video that Chefren posted already.

      I don't think, that the second half was badly managed by Kruzliak. There was one missing YC in the first half, yes, but there were also positive points in the second half (advantages, which I already pointed out in an earlier post). The red card is indeed wrong, but it is also - as Chefren already pointed out - a matter of perception. Unfortunately this happened at the end of the match, just after Portugal scored and had a final chance to potentially reach the semifinals.

      Concerning added time: 4 minutes were shown by the fourth official, but 6 minutes were played. I can understand why Kruzliak decided to extend the added time: remember that Portugal scored in 90+2' and that Macedonian players were wasting quite a lot of time towards the end of the match. For me actually understandable.

      I still think that Kruzliak could make his CL debut next season, I already (and some others here on the blog as well, if I remember correctly) expected his debut already this season. But we'll see how the committee will decide in autumn.

      Delete
    2. The angles of replays are not good enough to see it clearly, but well positioned Kruzliak was really sure. I think he saw the high studs tackle and... he was right. See the screenshots

      https://pasteboard.co/L7k60KTK.png
      https://pasteboard.co/L6DNc4rK.png

      So it's better to be careful before crucifying the referee after seeing such angles.

      Delete
    3. Dear Ray, i agree with you, but this is only a picture. No brutality, nothing, no high speed etc.
      For me no red card

      Delete
    4. I agree with the force not being so excessive but we can also see the hitting point was high and there was a very high risk of injuring an opponent. From what I know, the referees were instructed to be stricter and alert regarding late tackles, simulation and stamps(!) this season. We can even see it clearly at this tournament, so I would say the straight red card was at least acceptable if not simply correct.

      Delete
    5. The RC-incident in slow-motion and with a little zoom:

      https://vimeo.com/222905829

      Delete
    6. For me, this is a bad decision: The Portuguese player never intended to tackle his opponent with studs. I know that "intention" is no criteria for SFP. BUT: We have to judge tackles in their situational context. This was no tackle against anyone, this was just a natural movement to step onto the ground in my view. Bad luck that the Macedonian player put his backheel in the way... never a red card in my view.

      Delete
    7. Thanks for sharing this much better video, DutchRef. While I do understand Ray's point, I still don't think that this is a straight RC. It is indeed - as Niclas stated - a natural movement. But the observer may support the sending-off for the reasons developed by Ray. Nevertheless, for me it remains a crucial mistake and I would stick with the 7.9 (8.4) mark I initially gave.

    Big calls correctly taken (nonetheless, I would have preferred a straight red card to #9 SRB and YC for simulation at Spain's penalty appeal). Apart from strange YC for SPA in 90', there were no mistakes from the referee. However, still visible too shy / not firm / too soft approach (at least the referee was able to talk to players twice...).

    4. Sorry, red card for number 18, not berardi in my opinion
      @Gitzlo, I think, if he decide for a yellow card, it would be yellow/red and normally you don't give a yellow/red for a trifle like this

  26. A good no penalty decision from Madden in 30mins- accidental tangle of legs.

    1. To me that has to be a penalty, really in the vicinity of AAR1, but I think AR1 actually has the best view, looking into the tackle at 45o

    2. for me accident, attacker is the one who causes the accidental collision but wrapping both legs around then falls over. I think no penalty could be supported, but I agree it is AR/AAR decision. Team Madden has done very good in this end to end game. AR2 with a few tight offside called correctly.

    1. I would send home both Stieler and Gil Manzano due to presence of Germany and Spain in semi-finals.

    2. As we know from EURO2012, the presence of teams at semifinals can mean a lot or nothing :) But yes, it is of course the more probable version.

  30. Another very good performance by Vinčić, he must be choice number one for the final imo

  31. Apart from that, good performance by Vincic. Consistent card management in the 1st half, although at times I think his card presentation and player management could have been a bit calmer (specially in the mass confrontation situation). In the second half, things became easier and calmer, maybe also thanks to the referee's earlier approach. However, some SPA offences that were very similar to e.g. the 6th yellow card in the game went unpunished. What brought the 7th yellow card in the game was not punished in the same way in 90+2 - very similar foul, just on the other side. So even though the approach worked and nobody really complaint, I think Vincic can think about his consistency between both halves a bit. The end might justify the means, so overall a well controlled, quite challenging game remains. Points for consideration might be in the area of acceleration and player interaction (very distanced, little interaction, hesitant body language at times).

    All in all, 8,4-8,5 in my view.

    1. Fully agree. Regarding 90+2' - it would be a 2nd YC to #12 ITA, so... But regarding consistency, there was also a studs tackle from #8 GER not yellow-carded and another studs tackle from #10 ITA cautioned (22' vs 38'). However, in that case, I think Vincic just missed the incident in 22' and whistled a foul either by intuition or upon advice.

    2. Indeed, the studs tackle in 22' was reckless for me, especially in the context that the player was already warned before I expected a caution, also compared with the mentioned YC in 38'. Furthermore a bad free-kick-management in 32' (ref denied a promising ITA attack - if he does, he has to caution the player too). As Niclas already said, his player's management is improvable as well. Some foul whistles (e.g. 22', especially 75'-90') with some delay, not always understandble. But the big picture was good - full control, good acceptance, body language on the expected level too. My mark would be 8.3.

  32. I totally agree with you guys. For me Bastien, Vincic, Gozubuyuk are the best. They deserve a next match. I have to say they deserve all The final. But UEFA have to make a choice.

    2. I think Bobby Madden did quite well in a not too challenging match. Recognized the upcoming frustrations of the Czech and reacted appropriately. YC's shown in 79' (CZE17 - dissent), 82' (CZE2 - tackle) and 88' (CZE5 - stamp) spot on. The first YC of the match (68' - DEN ) acceptable, but then I would have preferred a first YC for the Maxsø-tackle (44'). Besides that the entire procedure regarding that 68' YC could have been a bit more convincing (faster communication, as the YC was probably advised by 4th official/ASR1?).
      Unfortunately in my opinion the no-penalty decision in 31' was a wrong assessment of the situation. Although a little clumsy, CZE10 simply clips his Danish opponent and a penalty should have been given. First responsible official here is the AAR1 (and maybe ASR1 could also have helped out).
      So altogether a satisfying performance for Bobby Madden, which I would mark with 8.3.
