Full time summary

AM at 2016-04-28 22:08:43

Damir Skomina has controlled this game from first whistle to the final whistle. We have seen good judgement of tackles for the ball or tackles on an opponent. One yellow card correctly issued and there were no match decisions worthy of discussion. Clear and good use of the wait and see technique at advantage situations. Good movement and viewing angle achieved for penalty area decisions. We have seen a good running style with clear acceleration and movement in the left hand side of the field of play. Also he was able to anticipate what was going to happen next (reads the game) and avoided unnecessary running. Excellent preventative management for the one area of grappling as we discussed in the 2nd half. As for both our Assistants then Robert Vukan has shown a very good technique as we have highlighted there were 2 clear offside errors one in the first half which we discussed (Soldado) which was just offside and not signalled, also in the second half Llanana was flagged offside when on replay he was clearly onside. Otherwise his technique is one we can all admire and learn from. Jure Prapronik on the nearside touchline has carried out his duties effectively. Low key but effective. Excellent concentration in the dying moments of the game as we see Adrian Lopez score from an onside position following a cross of the ball from Suarez.

Well what are your thoughts on tonight`s referee and or his Assistant Referees?

Soldado responds with a reckless tackle and is fortunate not to see yellow – frustration for him from the last fk


67

AM at 2016-04-28 21:31:28

Frustrations on the touchline by both managers following that last Lucas challenge the referee swiftly moves across at the stoppage to have a calming word with both managers, well received.

Good stamina seen and running a long distance in that last V. attack from DS

AM at 2016-04-28 21:11:52

Foul by Costa and the referees whistle just goes up a bit with more of a blast – this shows his displeasure at the careless challenge and lets all know that he is there and whilst low key at the moment then this can all change

Half time summary

AM at 2016-04-28 21:04:26

So far for our referee – Damir Skomina he has controlled this game to half time and we have seen good judgement of tackles for the ball or tackles on an opponent. There have no key match decisions worthy of discussion to half time. Clear and good use of the wait and see at advantage situations. Good movement and viewing angle achieved. Although you feel that he has a lot left in terms of stamina and that he is holding this back until required in the 2nd half. We have seen a good running with clear acceleration and movement in the left hand side of the field of play. Also he is able to anticipate what is going to happen next (reads the game) and avoids unnecessary running.

As for both our Assistants then Robert Vukan has shown a very good technique as we have highlighted there was just the one offside which we discussed (Soldado) which was just offside and not signalled, otherwise his technique is one we can all admire and learn from.

Jure Prapronik on the nearside has carried out his duties effectively. Low key but effective.

Mark Clattenburg to referee the FA Cup Final 2016

AM at 2016-04-28 20:35:22

Mark Clattenburg says a lifetime ambition will be fulfilled when he walks out at Wembley Stadium to take charge of the 2016 FA Cup Final.

Manchester United and Crystal Palace will contest for the famous trophy on Saturday 21st May, and Clattenburg has been given the honour of leading the two teams out at the national stadium.

The 41-year-old, a Premier League referee since 2004, has had another fine season domestically and in Europe, and this appointment has seen him achieve a target that he set himself at the start of the campaign.

 

Mark Clattenburg to referee the FA Cup Final 2016

AM at 2016-04-28 20:33:52

Santos of VFC. is injured in that last challenge for the ball and the referee quickly moves in to assess.


25

AM at 2016-04-28 20:31:25

No foul awarded for Liverpool as the referee shows a clear distinction between tackles for the ball vs tackles on an opponent


22

AM at 2016-04-28 20:29:36

To date the referee is looking calm and relaxed and this is having a positive effect on the game itself. As and when he needs to inject some pace and movement then it is there for all to see.


Additional Assistant Referees

AM at 2016-04-28 20:23:48

Having AAR tonight does allow the referee to focus that much more down the left hand channel of the field of play


15

AM at 2016-04-28 20:21:49

Good fitness levels seen from our referee in that last L. attack as he moves wide down the left hand side of the field of play


12

AM at 2016-04-28 20:18:57

FK to Liverpool – good use of whistle by DS


11

AM at 2016-04-28 20:18:20

Soldado looked to be just offside in the last V. attack not given however by RV.


10

AM at 2016-04-28 20:17:03

FK award from our referee who looks very relaxed early on and is allowing some early minor contact without being too fussy


Robert Vukan - Assistant Referee

AM at 2016-04-28 20:14:42

Good in field movement along the touchline seen from RV on the far touchline, good flag technique as well for throw ins as he is in camera view then keep an eye on him tonight from an education and training point of view


Tonights Referee

AM at 2016-04-28 20:11:35

Damir Skomina has been a FIFA Referee since 2003 and is 39 years old

You will never walk alone

AM at 2016-04-28 20:00:31

Tonight though is much more than just football because this week there has been painful relief swept away for the families of the 96 fans who never came home some 27 years ago. There will be a mixture of emotions for the families involved who have searched relentlessly for truth and justice which this week has finally confirmed that the 96 fans were indeed unlawfully killed. These surviving families never gave up their fight for the truth and justice. Tonight will be a poignant night for all involved and we here at YATR send out our very best wishes to you all. You will never walk alone.
