    1. My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: Urgentspellcast@gmail.com or Urgentspellcast@yahoo.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me Call or WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109 also view his blog: https://urgentpowerfullovespell.blogspot.com/

    1. I know for Macron, I mean colour of kits

    2. Probably yellow, Chelsea with blue, Arsenal with red kits.

      Delete
    3. I see Orsato with yellow jersey on the pitch ;)

  3. Good luck to mr. Rocchi. Really looking forward to this game!

  4. Macron yellow kits look good, but IMO there's too much presence of the logo. In Adidas kits it was almost hidden.

    1. What kind of Ref Kits is this? Where is ADIDAS 18 kit?

      Delete
    2. Macron is replacing Adidas as referee kit supplier for UEFA competitions (UCL, UEL, UNL, Euro...) until 2022.

      Delete
    3. Why would any brand want their logo hidden? Advertising is what it's all about, isn't it? It's what pays the bills.

      Delete
    4. It seems Adidas did for some reason. When their kits are shown on TV, their logo is nowhere to be found. That has happened since 2016 kits. I don't know why.

      Delete
  5. These Macron referee kits look sharp, other than the socks. I've never been a fan of referee kits with "clownish" looking socks. But the shirt and the shorts look amazing. Adidas will not be missed at all.

  6. Rocchi well read the kick there and immediately whistled for the offensive foul. Great awareness and preparations

    ReplyDelete
  7. Spot on decision by Rocchi. No PK there. The Arsenal player looks for the contact. While the Chelsea GK tries to pull his arms back.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think correct NO PK there.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The Arsenal player goes for the ball, reaches and touches it, is then contacted by the goalkeeper. Clear foul, clear penalty.

    ReplyDelete
  10. The rejected appeal was spot on by Rocchi. If he gives it VAR won't intervene they will try to look for any contact to support the referee that's why as referee we should be strong mentally and know the arsenal players was looking for the contact

    1. Please watch in full speed again. He has no reason to look for a contact. He would have passed the goalkeeper with an empty goal. I agree that the slow pictures are looking different, but look at full speed.

      Delete
    2. I tell you he wasn't in control of the ball after pushing it past the goalie and most striker always do that when we feel there is no reason to go down they prove us wrong and looks for contact. It's now part of instinct believing pushing it past the goalie will result in a PK. As I said if Rocchi gave it VAR won't intervene as there was contact but the player waited and wanted

      Delete
    3. No penalty. In such a game you give only the absolutely ass-clear things and not such.

      Delete
  11. IMO correct decission not to whistle a penalty in 18th minute. Also compliments for Irrati for very fast silent check and not intervene there.

    ReplyDelete
  12. how is that not at least a YC?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Missed a mandatory (at least) dark YC.

    ReplyDelete
  14. 2 missed yellow cards for reckless studs in 14' and 38'. Specially 38' is a stonewall yellow.

    1. Totally agree and surprising from the Italian there who is usually card happy

      Delete
    2. I don't like it when referee's change their style/approach just because a match is a Final. There is not another set of Laws of the Game for Final matches.

      Delete
  15. So, not very challenging game and Rocchi seems accepted on the pitch, but he missed 2 quite blatant YC for reckless stamp.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Those missed bookings are the only blemishes in Rocchi's first 45 minutes of action.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Really Rocchi, really? You allowed heavy card desrving tackles go unpunished. And here you miss two fouls against Chelsea. And then you go and show the first card of the game for a little lip service? Talk about disciplinary inconsistency.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Offtopic but short pocket seems too tiny.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I thought the same thing; this is probably the first time he's used this kit in a match so the muscle-memory isn't quite there yet.

      Delete
    2. Sometimes you can see the card from inside the pocket. Adidas were 'deeper'

      Delete
    3. Yes I also noticed that. An issue with New referee kit designs when they don't realise they needs deep pockets, especially for the larger size cards I like to carry.

    1. Soft but correct in my opinion although the replays were not that good

      Delete
  20. That was very restrictive view of advantage at 63’. The PK at 64’ is absolutely correct (though caution/RC for DOGSO?).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. (And delayed caution should have been given at the next stoppage for the shirt pulling at 63’)

      Delete
    2. At least SPA and not really an attempt to play the ball. Context probably didnt need a caution here, he perhaps thought.

      Delete
    3. No caution was correct in my opinion. It's not DOGSO with another defender right in front and close by, and it is a charging foul (not a push). The defender had eyes for the ball.

      Delete
    4. He’s in a position for a direct shot on goal, he’s arming the shot, and he gets pushed in the back with no intention to play the ball. It’s an odd case to say it’s not DOGSO.

      Delete
    5. I don't think DOGSO is blatantly wrong, but there is another defender so nearby and in good position between the attacker and the net. Thus, I think it's fair to say we are missing one of the 4 criteria for DOGSO. As for the attempt to play the ball, I think the distinction between a push and a charge is important here. In this challenge, the defender didn't extend the arm to push down the attacker, he ran into his back. This means this is a charge, not a push, and it's reasonable to assume that, since he was running in the direction of the ball, the ball was his goal ultimately. Especially when you consider that FIFA referees have been pretty consistent in terms of erring on the side of assuming there was an attempt to play the ball in these situations: look at the DOGSO yellow Pitana showed in Denmark - Croatia at the World Cup R16 for a similar example.

  21. Anyone else thought Guendouzi should've seen yellow for SPA a few minutes ago?

  22. Obvious, clear foul prior 2:0!

  23. I think Rocci did well,no var.well done my model.

    1. I feel it's Luis Munuera Montero as Juan Martinez Munuera is at the under 20 world cup
