  1. Is it usual that 4th officials are from the same nation as the home team?

  2. Two interesting situations today in EPL:

    Possible missed penalty in Liverpool - Newcastle (ref. Andre Marriner), no VAR intervention:

    Excellent advantage rule from Lee Mason in Sheffield Utd - Southampton:

    1. it's not a possible, it's a stonewall penalty missed :P

    2. Thanks Keyser. Good advantage indeed and penalty missed for Liverpool.

    3. The Liverpool video: It's absolutely unacceptable that with VAR they decide that's not a clear error and something that needs to be reviewed. It's really insane.

  3. Refereeing Highlights: Sascha Stegemann in Leipzig - Bayern München

    1. Thanks. What's your opinion on his performance?

    2. I would say (very) good.

      - He was present when needed (I was positively surprised by the warning he issued after the advantage played for holding offence in 18');

      - Quite agile taking into account he's a tall man, good backpedaling;

      - Good game reading, allowing quite much but not keeping both eyes closed to clear fouls, especially good reaction on two 'elbow' offences.

      - Regarding first, overturned penalty, I think he wrongly assessed the challenge as either a stamp or studs foul, that's why VAR intervened;

      - I would perhaps prefer a YC to Nagelsmann for continuing his dissent at fourth official after the warning issued by Stegemann.

      - It will be interesting how much he can achieve at UEFA niveau. I think Sascha is quite talented.

  4. Swiss newspapers are reporting that Stephan Klossner announced his resignation today.
