    1. Kristo Tohver is overcoming Kaasik....

      Delete
    2. And it's very good. Tohver is a very big talent. Saw him three times and he always was excellent. He's one of the best referees in 1st Category but we know politics reasons... Such countries like Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland aren't popular to UEFA Referee Committee... And Kaasik was a referee in one match that I saw (Steaua and not remember opponent) two/three years ago. Extremely intense match, three missed red cards and I think it was crucial moment to his career. He was very perspective referee and now... Now we have Tohver and I hope he'll get the chance to be Elite Development soon.

      Delete
    3. To the best of my knowledge, Tohver is still a category 2 referee at this moment?

      Delete
    4. Oh yes, sorry, my fault. But this fact just indicates UEFA's passive approach to so much talented referees. I hope Tohver and Marciniak are 100% sure to advance to the 1st Cat.

      Delete
    5. I do not think their approach is passive. It's clear that referees from Baltic nations need more matches to be promoted or to get high profile clashes than refs from England, Italy or Germany. Latters' leagues are just more intense and challenging so that referees mostly exhibit a lot of experience even before they receive the fifa badge, so it's just logical to my mind.

      Delete
    6. Really? Kassai, Michel were from poor football countries where matches the game isn't so intense to your mind and they were pushed... If the referee is an obvious talent, it's unfair to keep him in lower category only because he's from worse league than ENG/ESP/GER... There are good and better COUNTRIES in UEFA's eyes.

      Delete
    7. Kassai was pushed when he achieved CL level, but in his early career, he needed more time as others as well. I saw Tohver at U17 EURO 2011 (you cannot expect a promotion from 3rd Group to 1st within 1,5 years), I found him convincing, but never to be compared to someone like Kassai.
      For me as German it's easy to put forward this argument with the "bigger leagues", but it's probably true that a referee can cope more with an intense and high pace match in front of 60.000 supporters in Champions League if he is used to whistle in front of an average attendance of 45.000 supporters like in Bundesliga, if the football played in Spain is 2 times faster than in Estonia. These are just facts, but of course I do not want to arouse the impression that these are the only facets of refereeing experience (not to be understood in a wrong way).

  11. By the way, it would not harm if some of the English and Scottish top referees were able to speak more than their mother tongue, just as all the other refs do as well.

    1. A British delegate criticized once a UEFA match, why the referee speaks not good English.The referee replied that whether the delegate ruled a foreign language - no.

  13. Hello!
    Dear author and dear users!

    I want to thank you for running this blog. I read the entries posted here almost every day. I am very impressed with your passion and time spent on writing in this unique space. Until now, I would take no part in the discussion, perhaps soon will put some my opinions. Keep up the good work on, please.

    Meanwhile, greetings from Vanuatu (however strange this would sound in Europe)!

  16. Thomson instead of Norris at Kopenhagen-Stuttgart!

    ReplyDelete
  17. So again no Norris, unbelievable.
    Kruzliak was not up to this match in Marseille. It was definitely too huge and UEFA's appointment is responsible for that, too much too early. Many mistakes, no crucial one, but not more than 8.0 for my taste.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Alon Yefet is a very fussy referee, if you complain, immediatly card. He likes also to talk even for a long time to a player, after a foul.
    Overall, not difficult match to handle, but very intesive from 1' to 90'.
    No crucial situations in penalty ares, assistants good on offsides without mistakes. Anyway in second half he allowed too much wasting of time by Dnipro and he gave only 3 minutes as additional time. He was also pedantic prior to every free kick, correcting the position from which the player had to kick the ball.
    No other important thing to report, overall an average performance.


    ReplyDelete
  19. Big mistake by Van Boekel in Athletic Bilbao - Lyon: he allowed the 1-2 scored by Bilbao after a kick on the face of French keeper.
    Can't believe that the additional was there without seeing the situation.

  20. Fautrel with penalty for Hannover and two direct red cards for Helsingborg in the last minute of regular time. The defender made a sliding tackle and hit both, ball and legs. So maybe a foul, maybe not. The situation was on the edge of the penalty area. So maybe a penalty, maybe not. If it was a foul, then it was most probably a DOGSO. Fautrel showed a red card to a Helsingborg player, but I'm quite sure, it was not the one who made the tackling. The Swedish team protested heavily and Fautrel sent off another player, probably for insulting.
    The situation should be reviewed.

    ReplyDelete

    1. The second red card was for the player, who committed the foul. But strange, to issue a card for another player first...

      Delete
    2. I saw it. First of all, the tackle is very controversial. I wouldn't give that penalty but the Fautrel's call is acceptable (tackle hit both, leg and ball). The most important is a place of infrigement. For me, it was before the box, hence - free kick, but again in such case, penalty is acceptable. My feeling is: both red cards were for dissents not for the foul. He firstly sent off Atta, then he was going to look on the penalty and Larsson said something. Fautrel gave him straight red card. I think the foul wasn't DOGSO, maybe yellow card but it seems Fautrel didn't want to give that. Overall, very calm in this situation and every single call here is acceptable to my mind. But I'm sorry for Helsingborg... I understand both players as well.

      Delete
    3. Yes, clearly a free-kick, not a penalty. And then I would not even have issued a yellow card. The purpose was clearly the ball, he partly touched it and although it was with both legs, I do not think he really endangered his opponent's health there. Furthermore I have doubts whether the red cards were really profound and based on verbal dissents or just because they did not stop complaining, but we cannot be sure about that.

  21. 'Just in case anyone noticed that Euan Norris was replaced as referee in Thursday's Europa League match between Copenhagen and Stuttgart by Craig Thomson and was wondering why, it was after he was feeling unwell, collapsed and was subsequently hospitalised on Monday night, referee's chief John Fleming has said. He will also sit out this weekend's domestic matches, but should be back next week. He has also been publicly backed after Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels publicly criticised him last week.' - ratetheref user
