  3. A seemingly busy evening for Adrián Cordero Vega in Granada - Valencia tonight, with three sending offs (one 2YC and two straight RC) between 70' and 76'.

    70' - 2YC VAL23: could (should) this even be a straight RC for Violent Conduct?

    73' - RC VAL7 after saying something to Cordero Vega. Missing foul prior to that?

    76' - RC GRA22 for Serious Foul Play

    Is there anyone who has seen the entire match or somebody else (George, Quilava?) who could elaborate further on Cordero Vega's performance?

    1. Looking at those here's what I think
      1 that could most definitely be a straight RC for VC but I think a second yellow is acceptable
      2 this isn't the first time I've seen a ref give a straight RC for what ever was said I wish more refs would do it.
      3 personally I think this was only a straight RC because of the two Valencia players sent off. I do think it's borderline SFP but I would prefer a YC here. I don't think VAR would've deemed a YC a clear and obvious error as it really could've gone either way

    2. Concerning the 3rd scene: For me a straight red card, correct decision. There is no intention to play the ball. Player trips for his opponent clearly after the ball has passed him.

    3. IMO
      1 - Supportable decision, could be straight RC as well, but Im okay with the decision.
      2 - 100% correct, I like the handling in the scene.
      3 - I like the RC here, however YC would be supportable as well.

    4. I support the ref in all his decisions

    5. Well, I said it yesterday in another post but:
      1. Straight RC for VC.
      2. Missed foul: the defender does not have any chance to fight for the ball (neither does the attacker, though) yet he charges the attacker to ensure the GK gains the ball. He even changes his path to intercept the attacker, so should be a FK. Missing this foul leads into a dissent in which, according to the ref, the attacker says "fuck off" in Spanish ("vete a la mierda"), which is obviously a RC.
      3. If he had not sent off 2 Valencia players before that, probably he would just have issued a YC, although there are arguments for the RC and for me that is the correct decision given the intensity of the foul and what he does.

      Actually, I think you left out the two most interesting and controversial situations:

      14' goal disallowed for a foul in the build up to the goal, when Granada player recovered the foul + YC for reckless use of arms. VAR intervention for that.

      86': missed foul (tripping) on Valencia's defender before Granada's second goal? In this situation, VAR could not intervene because "a new attack" started immediately after that situation.

      If you could provide a video for those, it will be interesting to discuss!

      In general terms, his performance was OK, not too good, not too bad. He could have prevented that ending if he had not shown a YC in the 8th minute for dissent (other forms of dissent were not punished so harshly after that) and just given a warning and had kept a clearer foul line. Too many missed fouls, IMO.

      On another note, I have to say it is a shame the situation with Valencia. They can go into relegation spots this afternoon after the board sold/gave away their best players this summer (Parejo was given to Villarreal for free despite being its captain!). It's always sad to see historical clubs so close to destruction thanks to awful management.

    6. I must not have seen that post, thanks George (and everyone else!). I try to cut the incidents you mentioned this afternoon, thanks for the info.

      I believe actually that 2YC in 70’ should have been a straight RC (player deliberately kicks out at his opponent): normally a mandatory VAR intervention for me, probably no intervention because the outcome would have been the same (player sent off anyway).

      I think the RC given in 76’ is a BRILLIANT decision, there is zero chance the player could have gotten the ball and cynically hits out at his opponent. I can’t see any other outcome than Red Card here, kudos to Cordero Vega! (I had a little reminder of Simunić’s RC in SRB-CRO officiated by Brych in 2013).

  4. I think you can safely remove AAR1 and AAR2 in 2021:)

    1. I saw yesterday a game from Jordan with additional assistant referees :)

  9. Some clips from Basque derby Athletic-Real Sociedad today (referee José María Sánchez Martínez)

    61' YC for ATH3 for reckless elbow. Possible excessive force?

    81' YC for ATH4 for reckless challenge. Possible SFP?

    67' YC for SPA for RSO5 + management. I've rarely seen a player changing his face-expression so fast when he sees the referee going towards him :D

    Overall: Good/expected performance by Sánchez Martínez, maybe a couple of cards missed but I think all disciplinary decisions are supportable and kept full control during the whole match.

  22. Unbelievable penalty awarded by VAR in the Turkish league, match Erzurum BB vs Gaziantep, at the score of 0-1 in min 94:

    To put the situation into context, with a win Gaziantep (a small team from Anatolia) would have climbed onto the 1st place, ahead of all big Istanbul clubs...

    1. It is not clear, only explanation for this call I think the arm (or maybe elbow) of a defender close to opponent while jumping, hitting him on the back, but very sophisticated decision and totally out from the spirit of the game, you should never call something like that unless 100% clear and very evident.

    2. I think, the reason for awarding the penalty is this little push in the back:

      However, this decision is unbelievable. With the nose in the laws it is maybe somehow supportable, but those penalties are totally tactless and, in the end, unbelievable.

    3. I think the reason was the push from the back on player #7, happening at 00:42. But this is not enough to justify a penalty in my opinion as well.

    4. Yes, the movement is small, but it gives the defender an advantage. So, he also breaks the position of player # 7.

      Definitely Penalty!

  25. Why fifa hasn't published yet the referee list for 2021!

    1. They did. You can see few posts above.

    2. No, anonymous is talking about the official PDF on
      I can confirm still not published.
      I hope in a few days it will appear.
      One year ago it was published in the early days of this month, but I don't remember the exact date.

    3. It will be published on the first working day of the new year, which is 4 January 2021.

    4. Saturday is not a working day in Switzerland? Nice country.

    1. Most important matches for Higler (Rotterdam derby), Kuipers (Ajax - PSV) and Gözübüyük (PSV - AZ). Nothing surprising there.

      IMO good match for van de Graaf. Disappointing matches for Lindhout (on both matchdays) and Dieperink.

      Danny Makkelie's team is incomplete. AR Mario Diks misses again, as last matchday of 2020. Might be an injury, so could be tight for his FIFA Club World Cup appointment
