  7. Skomina and Mazic will get European finals this season. It is 100 %
    But what`s your thoughts about 4th officials for these matches?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm sure we'll see Rocchi somewhere as a fourth official. Whether this will be CL or EL final depends on Juventus' qualification. If I had to think of other possibilities for 4th officials, I'd have to think of Hategan or Collum.

      Delete
    2. Excluding referees appointed to FIFA U-20 WC, following names remains:

      Atkinson, Aytekin, Fernández Borbalán, Hațegan, Nijhuis, Rizzoli, Rocchi, Tagliavento, Thomson, Turpin

      Then, excluding the "low-Elite Group", referee who handled both EL and CL final (Rizzoli) and referee whose performance aroused too many controversies (Aytekin), following names remains:

      Atkinson, Hațegan, Rocchi, Turpin

      I would predict Atkinson for the CL final, taking into account that the CL final is in Cardiff and that Atkinson's performance was very good in a hot game. It would be a nice farewell gift if he really quits his international career in December.

      Also in case of Rocchi, being a fourth official in the EL final could be a small gift for his good performances this season and his overall contribution to the top-level refereeing for many years.

      Those would be my choices.

      Delete
    3. Thanks for yout thoughts. It is really interesting to know your point of view about different questions;)

      Delete
    4. Totally agree with Ray, but Atkinson already functioned in this role in 2010 when Howard Webb was the referee, he would deserve it though. UEFA also trust Collum as Fourth Official because he performed this role in Turkey - Croatia (pretty much only non-AAR 4th I think?), led by Eriksson in challenging circumstances. To me it is too early for Haţegan and I don't think his personality suits, whereas Rocchi is empathic and calm, would deserve it for his season and career. I wouldn't even forget Undiano but that is very unlikely.

      Delete
    5. One more question: When the referee team arriving to the match(it is a day before kick-off, if i`m not mistaken),who mets them and who is booking hotel for them?

    7. About fourth officials in both finals, one year ago we had a surprise like Moen for EL final. Absolutely not expected, not even deserved. For CL, Kassai was appointed. He had already handled the final as main referee. So, everything is possible. I think that all Elite are candidates for that, excluding only the officials coming from the same nations of the teams involved.
      I have in my mind Collum as one of the first options.

      Delete
    8. Well of course, I forgot that Collum and many other Elite will be in South Korea.
      So, yes, I agree with RayHD. We should see quite surely Rocchi in Europa League, and maybe Atkinson in Champions League. Undiano Mallenco would be a very good alternative, but given the presence of a Spanish team he could be only in EL, but there I see Rocchi...

      Delete
    9. I would not rule out Marciniak as the 4th official for the CL final.

    10. Marciniak will be in South Korea :)

  11. Mandatory strict approach for Cakir, cards were absolutely needed there!
    What a challenging game is waiting for him. I thin correct decision to play on following a penalty appeal by Atletico. Crowd is trying to put high pressure. Let's see how the Turkish will perform.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Now a correct PK decision for Atlético.

    ReplyDelete
  13. As expected, very intense match tonight. If Çakir is not back to top form, he will struggle. Let's hope he's back. And looking how things are going, it seems he is. Clear penalty, good call.

    ReplyDelete
  14. So far, a good officiating, but this match is like a bomb. Let's see.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Careful with Isco: he has been exaggerating every contact in which he was involved.

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is the free flowing football that so many tout? The type of football that is supposedly brought to you by lax enforcement of The Law's of the Game?
    It's okay though. It can all be excused and explained by using cute little key words such as trends, directives, instruction.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I must say I'm watching a very convincing Cakir this evening, evn against mobbing by players.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't care that Ramos is the capitain. He must be cautioned here for dissent at 33' (and he was! well done by Cakir!). Running to the referee like that is absolutely prohibited, and it is good to see Cakir cracking down on that.

    ReplyDelete
  19. In my view, Cakir had an excellent approach on a tactical level until minute 29. Very effective body language, very good tactical messages he sent to all players. The only "mistake" so far was, for me, that he did not caution Coke in 29'. Clear reckless kick, and tactically actually a moment where you have to intervene. As he only warned the Atlético player, he had to warn the Real player who fouled Griezmann from behind some minutes later. Now two correct cautions and necessary signals also in terms of dissent. I agree, Chefren, this match can explode like Stark's El Clásico did some years ago. Let's hope the best.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Perfect dealing with mobbing! Excellent. Çakır deserves a very high mark at the moment. Maybe a missed YC to Koke and some problems with positioning, but I can understand he wants to be close to the play.

  21. Modern football and officiating at its best. Beat the living daylights out of each other, just don't you dare say anything to the referee. How very modern. SMH!!!

    1. Maybe you can attempt to make CONCRETE suggestions where Cakir should have taken different steps or made different decisions instead of always putting forward the same boring story.

      Delete
    2. He can't go and do what he's instructed, directed, and thought not to do. I don't blame him. He's just firing the pattern laid out for him like Sheriff said.

      Delete
    3. Perhaps you chose not to see the caution to Godin at the same time as the caution to Ramos? Or is your point that back in your days that would have been a red??? If the 'modern approach' means sanctioning both offenders at a situation, I'm rather a fan of that.

      Delete
    4. So which concrete situations should have been managed differently? Situation, minute, decision?

      Delete
  22. Why should I directly blamed Cakir? It's mission impossible for the referee teams due to the "modern approach". He's simply following the pattern laid out for the poor guy.

    1. Çakir is having a really fine match under very, very challenging conditions in my opinion!! Can you please point out in which situations he has done something wrong other than 29'??? I don't seem to recall anything else!!

      Delete
  23. Half-time assessment: 8,5-8,6. A match in a stadium which is so loud that Cakir's whistle was not audible twice which is under full control. A correct penalty, correctly rejected penalty appeals, reasonable signals via verbal and non-verbal communication channels AND cautions. Good management of dissent. High balance between proximity and distance to the players, between calmness and energy. -0.1 for the missing YC in 29' which I would deem as compulsory both technically and tactically. I hope the best for the 2nd half, maybe the result will calm things down.

  24. Wow, very interesting thing German TV just mentioned: Execution of the penalty was incorrect as Griezmann played the ball twice! Should have been IDFK in favour of Real.

    5. I agree with Niclas!! That's just way too hard to detect... Never a crucial mistake in a million years for me!!

      Delete
    6. I start Niclas. If you clearly detect the double contact : you have to whistle. No discussion about this kind of decision. No interpretation. Just law and only the law. (But i understand your point of view inspired from commun sense. :)

      Delete
    7. But as observer, if ref didn't detect it : no reason to blame him for that ! :)

      Delete
    8. Detected has to be whistled. Any video-proof shown by German TV?

      Delete
    9. I have one question Ray... Will the observer mark it as a technical error?? If yes, it becomes a crucial mistake, isn't it??

      Delete
    10. Yes, it's a crucial mistake. However, I haven't find any video clearly showing that mistake.

      Delete
    11. Don't get me wrong: If a player clearly plays it twice (e.g. by stumbling, touching the ball and then shooting it again) then the law has to be applied, no doubt. If it is unclear like in this situation and even after 4 replays you cannot be entirely sure (on the German payTV there maybe was a better replay, on the other channel it was unclear), then you can never whistle it. Never. It would be the direct road to losing control. I am sure that 99% of all FIFA officials would never whistle it. And therefore, I cannot imagine any observer would assign a crucial mistake for this concrete case (if there are clearer cases and the referee ignores it, that's a different story). So yes, common sense in this particular situation, which does not mean that clear cases of double contacts should be deliberately overlooked - sorry if I was too unclear.

      Delete
    12. I agree! It's visible only after many replays, after zooming it. Another hint it was (almost) impossible to detect is that any Real player protested.

      Delete
    13. Indeed. Same for BVB-Real back then. Nobody even thought about wanting anything there. So what was technically good to analyze with videos - same goes for today - is, I would dare to say, close to irrelevant on the field and probably also in the debriefing.

  27. Things are heating up - Cakir now has to be super vigilant. In my experience, if games get out of hand, it's often between 60' and 70' - players start getting tired, but realise they still have long to go, etc.

Slightly OT : Niclas what's your opinion on certain people blabbering the same old, boring story about how glorious refereeing in "their days" and how refereeing in "modern football" is totally wrong!! I mean this is going on in every single match day and the concerned people don't point out any particular time or situation where referee could've done things differently but rather goes on repeating some old boring stories!!

    3. In my view part of the criticism is justified and based on not too old experiences (Velasco in Brazil...). The problem is that I have the feeling that some people are watching games with a pre-decided opinion on a referee acting at the highest level and then looking for confirming information and situations that support their initial prejudice in a blurred way. This is what psychologists call confirmation bias. A good example is tonight's game: Cakir gives 5 cards, 2 after 6 minutes with the purpose to establish a roadblock early in the game, and still some people are complaining this would be the new modern approach.....

      Delete
    4. That's what I was trying to say... People are saying all these just for the sake of saying so which is really not good... These people massively lack empathy for referees in general!!

    5. Sorry Ray, but at the moment of the pass, Cristiano Ronaldo was not in offside. Am I wrong?

    6. Blurred angle but I had an impression it was an offside position. I need to rewatch it carefully.

      Delete
    7. Of course I agree that, in case of offside, it is a punishable one! But for what I watched, the position is borderline.

      Delete
    8. Ronaldo's position is the only thing that can be debated. Whether or not he interferes with play really can't be questioned.

      Delete
    9. Offside decision was correct as Ronaldo involved in active play by making a move towards the ball and confusing the goal keeper. Had Ronaldo stood still, the goal would have been allowed though the goal keeper most probably saved it anyway.

      Delete
  32. But the player in offside position didn't interfere with active play... Was he blocking the GK's line of vision??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Even if he was not blocking his line of vision, he tried to play the ball just in front of him. With that movement, the GK doesn't know what to do until he plays (or not) the ball and cannot react in time. IMO, that is offside.

      Delete
    2. Ronaldo was trying to kick the ball, right? At least I had such impression. Maybe I was wrong? If yes, it's offside. If he only tries to avoid a contact, it's no offside.

      Delete
    3. You're right Ray. You saw what I saw and what the AR saw. Thus the reason his flag went up for the offside offense.

      Delete
  33. All in all, a performance on 8.5 level, maybe 8.6. It could have been higher, but IMO Cakir missed 2 clear yellow cards that cannot be ignored. After starting with a tactical roadblock approach in the first 10 minutes, he turned more lenient, warning-focussed and tried to apply a more stepwise approach as if he started the game at 0 without the two early cautions. This almost did not work around minute 30, but he recognized the need to return to cautions in-time. This plus Real's 2:1 made the game easier in half 2.

    As for the rest, managing such a game in such a calm, but also energetical manner, with full control, authority and leadership, is really admirable. They can be very content.

    2. Same observation here, agreed with the speech about VARs, especially as offside is reasonably clear compared to penalty calls / RCs etc

      Delete
  36. I have a question on how VAR will work: official guidelines say that it will be used for "clearly wrong decisions", isn't it? Is a wrong onside/offside call always a "clearly wrong decision"? I mean, we couldn't have taken a decision even after several replays. Will the VAR be applied also on this borderline cases?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Of course, I'm referring to Ronaldo's offside

      Delete
    2. Offside situations are in most cases black or white, either offside or not, so yes of course. Beside this, there aren't clear mistakes if you can support both decisions like many fouls.
