  1. Elmer Bonilla and Roberto Garcia - my favorite referees in CONCACAF. In addition, great Walter Lopez from Guatemala. Good luck!

  2. Perl in Borussia - Leverkusen? Was he good? Without yellows? Too lenient?

  3. Perl is mostly without yellows :D
    No problems, I always emphasize it. A shame that DFB passed the wrong moment. He was simply too old for the FIFA badge when DFB recognized his quality.

    I am very content that Marrufo will get his chance again and of course, Bonilla is a great talent, this guy from Puerto Rico must be one as well.

  4. Yeah, Perl was better candidate than Kircher or Kinhöfer to my mind.

  5. Both never made their real UEFA bow..in Germany, they get big matches for years.
    Brych never had a top match so far, but look how he is considered on UEFA level.

  6. A bit like Mejuto González, he never got a Madrid-Barça or Barça-Madrid until 2007/2008...anyway, he was a top class referee.
