EURO Referees

I'm sure it will be a topic during the tournament itself, but today UEFA announced the list of 12 referees selected for the tournament

1. Cuneyt Cakir (Turkey)
2. Jonas Eriksson (Sweden)
3. Viktor Kassai (Hungary)
4. Bjorn Kuipers (Netherlands)
5. Stephane Lannoy (France)
6. Pedro Proenca (Portugal)
7. Nicola Rizzoli (Italy)
8. Damir Skomina (Slovenia)
9. Wolfgang Stark (Germany)
10. Craig Thomson (Scotland)
11. Carlos Velasco Carballo (Spain)
12. Howard Webb (England)


Fourth Officials
Marcin Borski (Poland)
Tom Herald Hagen (Norway)
Pavel Kralovec (Czech Republic)
Viktor Shvetsov (Ukraine)

No real surprises, happy to see Carballo selected for Spain rather than Undiano who is WAY too card happy. Webb return to a major tournament and he faces a possibility of returning to Poland (). I personally think he is a poor ref internationally, its funny in England you can get away with murder in games but when they ref internationally they become card happy. Atkinson was really the only other candidate for England. Cakir and Skomina are two young referees on the up.

Thomson is the only surprise in my opinion, he has reffed Champions League games but none of them high profile. He did ref the group decider in qualifying between France and Bosnia-Herzegovina. I like Felix Byrch from Germany but obviously Stark was the man to represent them

On yeah, in Euro there will be the goal line officials this year.

Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Here are the first round assignments

Poland vs. Greece: Carlos Velasco Carballo (ESP)
Russia vs. Czech Republic: Howard Webb (ENG)
Netherlands vs. Denmark: Damir Skomina (SVN)
Germany vs. Portugal: Stephane Lannoy (FRA)
Italy vs. Spain: Viktor Kassai (HUN)
Republic of Ireland vs. Croatia: Bjorn Kuipers (NED)
France vs. England: Nicola Rizzoli (ITA)
Ukraine vs. Sweden: Cuneyt Cakir (TUR)

No assignments yet for Proenca, Stark, Eriksson and Thomson. Webb returns to Poland after the 2008 incident where he became unpopular there.

Eriksson will probably get the big Netherlands-Germany matchup in the second round of games.

That Spanish dude was rubbish. Good old Englander Webb showing him (and the rest of the world suckers) how it's done.

Red is a pleasant colour

Webb actually had a solid game, credit to him, I think he showed no cards as well. But to be honest it wasn't a difficult match to ref

Carballo was awful, his linesmen though made two correct tight offside calls

Please, remove Spanish referees from this tournament. And from other tournaments, too. Including ****ing La Liga, where they are rubbish as well.

Truly awful referees. Difficult to stomach them week in, week out in La Liga.

The only contentious decision was the Sokratis double booking but things evened themselves later on and I doubt the outcome would have been any different in the end with the way that game was going.

Decent opening day from a refereeing perspective.
Come on what are you on about? The refereeing was disgusting just for the fact of the Sokratis sending off. Neither of them were yellow cards that resulted in him getting his marching orders. So when you say one contentious decision you really mean two and when you say contentitious you mean to say absolutely abysmal.

Yep it wasn't a penalty. The ref doesn't get any brownie points for that and his terrible calls twice on Sokratis were unforgivable. As poor decisions as you will see.

I thought the second card to Sokratis was perfectly deserved. As was the penalty. I only saw highlights though. The first card on Sokratis was not really a yellow but still foul (simulation made ref give a yellow).

The second booking was worse. The Polish player stumbled and was falling down anyway before there was even contact with Sokratis and the first yellow was poor. All Sokratis did was jump for the ball against an opposing player with minimal contact.

You can't give out yellows for these sort of instances. It makes the game a lottery.

Everyone should know by now that when you see a ref from La Liga in your match, it's going to be a rubbish match. They always want to be the star.

Was Croatia second goal an offside?

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."

I think the referee in Spain-Italy match is great. He should referee the final or at least semi finals. He has always been great whenever I watched.

The Irish player passed it to Jelavić, though t he ref could have blown for offside before the attempted clearence. Then again, he didn't have to as neither Croatian forward was interfering and Ireland had the ball.

The ref for Italy v Spain was definitely good, but the yellow for Balotelli was pathetic and only given because of reputation. Was only Balotelli's 2nd foul and he didnt dive in or anything, just about touched the player in an honest attempt at an intercepting tackle.

He yellow carded Alba for asking a punishment (yellow card)? So he is at least consistent, i.e. he could have yellow carded Balotelli for punching the ground and yelling, counting it as a dissent.

Anyway, Balotelli had 3-4 small fouls. Cannot blame the referee. The best so far, IMO.

Punching the ground and yelling at yourself is hardly a yellow card offense, that was only aimed at himself and not the ref. Frustration is allowed in sport as long as its not directed at an opponent or ref.

Also he had 3-4 small fouls which were all 50/50 and none warranted a yellow or stopped Spain from a good attack or anything. Like I said he had a good game, but the yellow for Balo was wrong. Luckily it ended up better for Italy as Prandelli only took Balo off so early because he was on a yellow and already fristrated for messing up a chance, normally a circumstance where Balotelli would do something stupid. Then ADN entered to score immediately.
