  2. I'm glad to see on this tournament referees from "small " countries like Montenegro, BIH and Estonia. They have to grab their chance and this is opportunity for them. For me the most interesting referee is Dabanovic from Montenegro but, as I spoke before, he must find permanent team. Logical choice is Milovan Djukic, who had two finals U17 and U19 and Jovica Tatar. Those two AR was in his team on most of the matches.
    And what about AR for this tournament?

  3. No VAR Ref's here?

    1. No, of course not. Does not seem reasonable.

    2. A confederation as wealthy as UEFA should take advantage of each and every opportunity to continue to develop its VAR program.

  5. OT

    According to Mike Riley the penalty awarded by Skomina on UCL Final is a mistake.

    1. Good approach and common sense. The current FIFA's and UEFA's handball interpretation is just a disaster.

      Delete
    2. That is a really interesting discussion: Exactly this specific situation is included in the official DFB presentation which has been put together to instruct refs on the new laws of the game. The scene serves as a perfect example for non-natural positioning of the arm which has to be interpreted as deliberate handball.

    3. No chance of sharing that presentation is there...?

  6. They MUST follow the LOTG end of.....It will be a disaster for their referees when they miss out on UEFA appointments

    2. It seems as the list is not 100% correct, so let's wait for UEFA official announcement.

      Delete
  8. Portelli Luke from San Marino is instead of Joost....

    1. Czech already used it.
      In Croatia and Russia they hope using it for the second part of the season.
      Isreal are ready, but no official statement.

      Delete
    2. Greece hopefully too, but not from the first matchday

      Delete
    3. Yes, Germany has introduced VAR for the 2.Bundesliga, too.

      Delete
    4. I would not want to be a Var in Greece..There will be tremendous pressure on the whole procedure of reviewing. New Greek championship will be by far the most challenging due to the political change in Greece. Unfortunately politics and football are closely linked in Greece. I am scared to say that there is still chance that some teams will decide/attempt to opt out from the league at some point as a result of 'bad refereeing'. Olimpiakos is said that they will regain significant power in decision making, but Paok is still very strong and unlikely to give up..

      Delete
    5. It is said that Greece will have it from MD3 but it's not certain.

      There are bigger issues to be solved before VAR.

      Delete
    6. Israel uses VAR from January 2019 (second half of the previous season).

      Delete
    7. but not in all games and I meant all games

      Delete
    8. Interesting silence at Israel, nothing stated for the upcoming season. Just VAR's debut in the previous season.

      Delete
    9. Switzerland will use VAR as well in First Division!

      Delete
    10. thank you!
