  1. Off topic.
    Sir Alex Ferguson has announced his retirement at the end of this season. Surely a legend of the European football, Manchester United coach since 27 years.
    Nevertheless, he often had difficult relationships with the referees...

  2. The other retirement that is tarnished by Sir Alex: Mark Halsey will quit refereeing at the end of the season.

    1. Although he hasn't had the best of seasons, Halsey has been a consistent performer over the years. His leniency is for me his best attribute. He tends to talk to players, rather than using his cards unlike officials such as Dean who is known as a 'card shark'. Good luck to him in the future.

  3. Predictions for MD3:
    AUT-SUI: Vincic/Minic/Koiv/Vnuk/Vassaras
    SWE-SVK: Dunauskas/Kostadinov/Vassyutin/Stoyanov/Levnikov
    ITA-RUS: Gözübüyük/Zhuk/Crotteux/Kralovic/Marko
    UKR-KRO: Sidiropoulus/Storey/Sigurdarsson/Doyle/Fasung

  4. When will we know who UEFA appoints for the Europa League final? I really do hope It's Kuipers. A EL final coupled with his selection for the Confederations Cup will cap off a wonderful season for the Dutchman.

    1. Stark's appointment for 2012 final was published two days before kick-off.

  5. Jagodina-Vojvodina 1:0 ( Đurić 16' penalty-kick ) LAV CUP Serbia, the final match, Partizan Stadium, Belgrade, Attendance: 15.000
    Referee: Milorad Mažić
    AR1: Igor Radojčić
    AR2: Milovan Ristić
    4th Official: Milenko Vukadinović
    Referee observer: Zdravko Jokić
    Routine Mažić's trial, the first final in which not taking Partizan, or C. Zvezda!
    Regards from Belgrade!

  6. Experienced ex-FIFA referee from Argentina, Juan Pablo Pomepei reacted in such style while sending off Gerardo Martino (away-team coach) during the match between Arsenal de Sarandi and Newell's Old Boys...

  7. referee obs for uel final Karlson Bo and delegate alaja pretti fin


    1. Very intereasting, that should mean no Moen because Sweden and Norway are both Scandinavian countries, and of course no Skomina (last observed by Karlsson) or Eriksson.

    2. Hello "kika" - Thanks for sharing this news and being with us!
      Bo Karlsson's presence in the final gives us however no hint whether it's Rizzoli or Cakir.

    3. Looks like I got my prediction right for the observer. Hopefuly the second part of my prediction will be right too and Kuipers is appointed.

    4. Sorry, of course I did not mean "Rizzoli or Cakir", but Brych or Kuipers..

    5. Do you think that Cakir is still possible?

    6. Yes, I thought to have read "ucl" ;)

  8. This comment has been removed by the author.

    1. What about disciplinary sanction for this challenge?

    2. Concerning the incident in Argentina, Pompei should be suspended. That cannot be tolerated in any way, no matter what happened before or how the context looked like.

      Regarding Kolarov's foul, it's a tough decision. Studs-up, foot-up, foot perhaps also too high. But the opponent's head was also quite low, perhaps too low. Difficult, but for me no red card here.

    3. Hm ok, the other replay is showing that the opponent's head was perhaps not too low..difficult.

    4. For me clear red card, no discussions.

  9. Greek Cup Final

    Asteras Tripolis - Olympiakos
    11/05/2013 20:00 (local time) Sryros Louis, Athens

    Referee: Athanasios Giahos
    Assistant 1: Dimitrios Saraidaris
    Assistant 2: Antonios Karatzikas
    Additional 1: Stavros Tritsonis
    Additional 2: Stavros Mantalos
    Fourth Official: Ilias Spathas

    First time the Cup final has AAR's.

  10. Nice appointment for Giahos, but to be honest, I am glad that Fandel and company have not introduced these AARs in Germany so far..

  11. AARs are actually being tested in Sweden now.

    Was tested during the 2 semifinals in the Swedish cup and there will be AARs at the final aswell, after that they will evaluate it.

  12. In Greece we had them only at the SF and Final of the CUP.

  13. How many matches you had with AAR's in Greece and Sweden?

    1. So far 2 matches in Sweden, the both swedish cup semifinals. It will be tested on 26 May aswell in the final.
