  2. Interestingly first four appointments all from different confederations

    ReplyDelete
  3. I expected Kuipers in Spain - Russia, maybe it doesn't look like a top clash, but it is. Home national team is involved, in addition Spain did not impress too much in group stage... we will see.
    Pitana: I didn't expect him there. A signal that after this game, in case of Argentina's elimination, he could maybe get a semifinal, but I still don't think directly the final...

    ReplyDelete
  4. It's good that their performances have been acknowledged but both reserve the real top clashes.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Both should sail through these matches.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Who referees from Uefa sent to home in yours opinion?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sending referees home will begin after Round of 16... IMO Brych and Marciniak are two prime candidates of being sent home after R16 from the UEFA refs!

      Delete
    2. Thanks you. Do I think right that Fourth Officials in 1/8 are candidates to home and are last start this referees in WC for comfort?

      I have questions because I am New. We have big knowledge

      Delete
    3. Not necessarily so. They can stay back as 4th official for the rest of the tournament or may even be used as specialist VARs so we can't say for sure that someone will go home just because they are 4th official in Round of 16. Regards! :)

      Delete
    4. Without knowing how many of them will be sent home, my list would be Brych, Marciniak (these provided that reports are true), Karasev, Turpin (mainly due to age), Mateu Lahoz, Rocchi, Skomina, Mazic, Kuipers and Çakir. I mean, this is the order in which I would start sending referees home. Of course not all ten will be sent.

      Delete
    5. No more on-field duty for Brych, Marciniak, Turpin, Karasev.

      Delete
    6. Dear Friends. Error Marciniak in PK Ger-Swe had little impact on results match, because Sweden scored a goal few minutes later.
      Mazic error (Mex-South Korea goal for 2-0 - faul in this attack) lost the last chance South Korea for draw and last chance for promotion to of 16 Round.
      Marciniak to home, Mazic is great?? Where is logic?

      Delete
    7. You forgot only one thing, Marciniak's mistake is for -0.5
      plus he REJECTED on field review

      Delete
    8. I am not forget.Just thinking out loud :)

  7. Predictions:
    Brasil-Mexico, Irmatov-
    Belgium-Japan, Ricci

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Brasil/Mexico will be someone from UEFA(Skomina, Mazic, Rocchi, or most probably Mateu Lazoh).

      Belgium/Japan surely not Ricchi, because the winner cross with Brasil, if they rech 1/4 final!

      Delete
    2. Maybe gassama for belgium japan

      Delete
    3. My guess is Cunha for Belgium Japan as he hasn't done much wrong, while Brazil Mexico should be Cakir in my opinion as he fits the profile of the game perfectly. Irmatov based on performances does not deserve a K/O game, same for Roldan and Caceres as they have been well below par.

      Delete
    4. Irmatov for Mexico? Oh God, please no! Mazic already allowed Mexico to get hacked and beat up on by South Korea. I shudder at what destruction Irmatov would bring with him.

      Delete
    5. And why there is a meaning that Brazil is in the same stream? What Ricchi could do, to support the weaker team?

      Delete
    6. It is "usually" avoided... Ricci unlikely in Belgium v Japan!

      Delete
    7. Probably, just that tactic does not make sense to me. Anyway, my prediction there is Cunha.

      Delete
  8. I don't know how Brych can NOT get another match -- the Referee of the Year in 2017. Maybe Brazil-Mexico? I wouldn't be surprised if Geiger got one. He did a great job with Germany-South Korea. I'd say Sandro Ricci, and how about Bakary Gassama for Belgium-Japan?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Now is 2018 as his eyesight unfortunately is not as good as it was last year, when he cannot see two players holding one. Unfortunately. :)

      Delete
  9. Based also on the press conference held today, I think that confederations rule will be kept for the whole Round of 16, otherwise it would be unfair for the other teaams, given the first 4 appointments. Then, for sure, from Quarterfinals everything will change.
    So this means if we want to imagine Brych appointed for a game: he could only get Brazil - Mexico. Indeed, impossible to see him again with Switzerland, while in the other two games confederations rule should be kept, as said.
    However, I made my predictions and now I changed idea about BRA - MEX: I think we will see Rocchi, with Cakir maybe appointed directly for a quarterfinal.
    For CAF two options: Belgium - Japan and Sweden - Switzerland.
    Would be nice to see Didhiou there. I think Gassama has lost a bit of credit under the eyes of committee, but just my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Diedhou for Colombia England?

      Delete
    2. Cakir is perfect for BRA-MEX because he quickly adapts to Latin style of play. I didn't really like Rocchi the traffic cop (not much presence, not my cup of tea). At this point, I see Ricci getting a straight QF.

      Delete
    3. Çakir's latest such much was Colombia v Brazil in the Olympics where he struggled quite a lot... I think Çakir is way more comfortable with UEFA v UEFA matches... In 2014 WC though, he handled Brazil v Mexico in Group stage very well!

      Delete
    4. It will be interesting to see Cakir in #SweSwi game, he hasn`t hadled european clash so far plus the match could be full with crosses and is needed referee with `strong` eye. No suprise if that will be the match with the most penalties in the tournament.

      Delete
  10. Surely we can also say, referees who then function as Fourth Official are not considered to whistle further matches in the WC.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Croatian media are surprised how Argentinean can be referee in Croatia match after 3-0 match where Argentjna was humiliated. 48h before match my country is speaking about referee :(
    Good luck to him!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What is the problem with an Argentine referee? These media people are the ones putting referees under undue pressure and frankly we must ignore them... For sure Pitana won't be bothered by what margin Croatia defeated Argentina or whatsoever! Good luck to Nestor :)

      Delete
    2. Of course. Argentina's elimination is better foe him :)

      Delete
  12. Missed YC for holding shirt

    ReplyDelete
  13. Tomorrow VARs for both games from the same country of main refereees... especially Makkelie, confirmed after BRA - CRC and SEN - COL. Very important signal for him...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sets up really strong teams overall :)

      Delete
  14. I notice that Gil is always AVAR1, or am I wrong? Any reason why he isn't VAR? Or an appointment I missed?

    Good to see Kuipers and Makkelie again. They worked together a lot, and that seems to pay off.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You are right. Also Vargas and Sampaio have not been used as VAR and Dankert and Martins only once in a "small" match.
      Maybe they have not performed as well as others in the training courses. But I had at least expected Gil as VAR in Marciniak's matches.

      Delete

  15. For Sherif Castrilli: Irmatov is one great referee.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He is,but on this tournament he is proving tottaly opposite.

      Delete
    2. 2010 Irmatov, Excellent
      2014 Irmatov, Acceptable
      2018 Irmatov, Unrecognizable

      Delete
  16. Brasil - Mexico: Rocchi - Di Libertadore, Tonolini (Italy) - Lahoz (Spain)

    Belgium - Japan: Diedhiou - Camara, Samba (Senegal) - Gassama (Gambia)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Cakir, Skomina, Mazic, Geiger, Irmatov and Ricci could be the names to be appointed before semifinals.
    Then, after that, we will see...

    ReplyDelete

  18. Irmatov, as says Chefren, can be in semifinals.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Irmatov IMO should be out of tournament after two matches under expectation!
    For SWE-SUI I expect Ricci or Cunha.
    For COL-ENG Geiger, may be Cakir, Mateu L. (I would have hoped for Gassama or Shukrallah, but I do not believe they get what they deserve)
    For quarterfinal we cannot predict anything now. Depends on outcome of 1/8ko round.
    But the best 9 for the rest of the games up to now for me:
    RICCI, CAKIR, FAGHANI, KUIPERS, PITANA, a bit behind these 5:
    Cunha, Geiger, Diedhiou, Skomina.
    Both Gassama and Brych are obviously out, for me wrong!
    Who should be sent home now?
    Karasev, Turpin, Roldan, Irmatov, Mohammed, Grisha and all without nomination so far.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Why do you think its wrong for Brych? When you make clear mistake and dont want to listen to VAR why would it be wrong to send him home? We're in the era starting with VAR to correct or suggest OFR, you will be sent home if you dont listen on suggestions..

      Delete
    2. I don't expect Turpin to be sent home:

      Apart from two nominations as main referee and one as fourth official, he seems to be an appreciated VAR including two appointments as main VAR with Diedhiou on the pitch.

      I assume that each of the four associations CONMEBOL, CONCACAF, AFC and CAF could be represented with at least one referee during the last eight games (starting with the quarterfinal). In the case that for instance Diedhiou should handle the third-place match, Turpin could be a strong candidate to act as main VAR again since they both have French as their official languages (provided that the French national team won't fight for the third place, of course).

      Delete
    3. Agreed with Jovan regarding Brych. One is selfconfidence, something different is arrogance that produced not only a crucial mistake but also influenced the outcome of a group. If there is some credibility left, Brych must be the first one on a plane home (and I am NOT a Serbia fan).

      Delete
    4. And in my opinion, Conger deserves to be appointed as 4th official in a QF.

      Delete

    4. Great, maybe you have a chance to catch me up now as I hadn't any hits except Rocchi and the correct confederation in BEL-JPN.

      Delete
  21. "Why do you think its wrong for Brych?" Because the referee had a better position than all TV cameras. Thu,s a possible Baharmast situation could have been the case as the situation cannot seriously be defined as clear error. The VAR had no right to intervene in that situation. If he did, than Collina and company should be replaced ASAP.

    I think Cakir, Geiger, Skomina and Ricci should be getting further matches. Maybe also Turpin and Lahoz. Most of them obviously in the QF. Let's see what Pitana, Kuipers and Diedhiou are doing in their matches. They should also be candidates for further matches. If Pitana doesn't blow his next match, he should be the favorite for the final.

    My ranking for the final and other matches:

    1. Pitana (R16 + final)
    2. Kuipers (R16 + SF)
    3. Cakir (QF + P3)
    4. Geiger (R16 + SF)
    5. Ricci (QF + X)
    6. Diedhiou (R16 + X)
    7. Skomina (R16 + X)
    8. Turpin (QF + X)
    9. Lahoz (QF + X)

    Faghani and Ramos have to be out after yesterday. Mazic, Irmatov and Rocchi shouldn't be appointed in the KO stage at all. Brych and Gassama seem to be out because of FIFA. Cunha's 2nd match wasn't as good to give him a 3rd match in my opinion. I'd like to see Turpin in one of the next matches. He kind of deserves one more match after a good season and two good matches at the WC.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Why shouldnt Mazic be in KO stage? He didnt make any BIG and crucial mistake to be sent home. Even Collina praised him for correcting his self about PK decision. IMO he is far better than at least 5 people on your list.

      Delete
    2. Also if they think it was good decision why they didnt show it on TV like 4 other situations with communications? Clear answer is that is was clear mistake and he ignored VAR.

      Delete
    3. He missed a more than clear foul in his first match leading to a goal.

      Delete
    4. If Faghani should be out after yesterday, almost all referee at this WC should go now home... I respect your opinion, but I find that almost impossible to happen.
