Rosetti: “We don’t want the VAR to re-arbitrate the games”

first_imgRosetti insisted that the International Football Association code Board (IFAB) provides for “clear evidence” of the error to justify VAR intervention. In the last days there were cases “limit” in the English Premier League, in which the technology annulled by a few millimeters a goal to the Portuguese Pedro Neto in Liverpool-Wolverhampton and to the English Jack Grealish in the Burnley-Aston Villa.Also on Saturday there was a similar case in the 3-0 win of Real Madrid in the Getafe field, with a French goal Raphael Varane who was validated after VAR control to determine a New position very fair. “The VAR is noticeable especially when it is not available. It is non-negotiable, it does justice, but it should not alter the spirit and fluidity of the game. The VAR controls everything that refers to the four planned cases: goals, penalties, red cards and identity errors. Silent control is something ordinary that should not be noticed. It lasts 16 seconds and does not interfere in the match. The important error is usually noticed in about 27 seconds, “Rosetti explained.“If the interruptions are very long, with ten or fifteen repetitions and four or five different cameras, it means that it is not a clear and obvious error, but a subjective interpretation of the referee that the VAR should not correct, “he concluded. The Italian Roberto Rosetti, president of the UEFA Referees Committee stressed that the VAR should not change the decision of the collegiate in cases of gameplay by a matter of few centimeters, in which “several minutes” are necessary to determine The effective position of a player. “We want the VAR to intervene only when the images show a clear error, not to re-arbitrate the matches. If not, the decision made in the field is better, “Rosetti said in an interview published this Saturday by the Italian newspaper”La Gazzetta dello Sport“.“Any part of the body, except the arms, closer to the goal than the ball and the last defender is out of play. Theoretically, one millimeter is enough. But if to decide if there is an offside of a few centimeters it takes several minutes to position the lines and there is a real difficulty in determining if it is out of play, always it is better not to change the decision made in the field, “he added.last_img read more

DD Gardening: Autumnal colours have never been better!

first_imgThis year the Autumn colours on the trees, shrubs and plants in the garden has rarely been bettered, the combination of good light levels and a lack of strong winds have allowed plants to put on a good prolonged show.An autumnal effect which caught the worlds imagination this week was the spectacular Emery Cross at Bogay Hill in Newtown. Images of Liam’s 100m long, 70m wide plantation of Japanese Larch went viral this week, this wonderful piece of work benefited from this still period of weather….and the rest is history!The Celtic Cross planted into the landscape between Killea and Manor. Picture by Darren Sheaffer.In more modest settings in our gardens shrubs such as Dogwoods, Spindleberries, Japanese Maples and such have been wonderful so far this Autumn, bringing another dimension of colour into our gardens. I’ve long said that flowers, whilst beautiful, are overrated and many gardens focus too much on flower colour and forget that whilst a plant may flower for 3 months, you’ve 9 months left of the year to enjoy the plant.So to have a garden with contrasting foliage colour, shapes, texture, stems and autumn leaves brings your garden to another level of interest.Now is a great time to introduce autumn colour plants to your garden, although by the time you bring them back from the garden centre the plants may have deposited all their foliage in the boot of your car the plant will establish well now and be in position for glorious colour next Autumn. And the joy of shopping in garden centres at this time of year is that many centres have end of season sales.If there’s one shrub I could encourage you to plant in your garden for Autumn colour it is Euonymus alatus or Spindleberry plant. In the summer the foliage is green and nothing showy, but in the Autumn it turns the most bright red before falling off, revealing heavily corked stems which appear square in shape. I’ve known this plant for years as the Burning bush, due to this amazing colour.Over the next few weeks we’ll highlight a particular shrub or tree each week for Autumn colour, as this is an area of the garden which is mostly neglected here in Donegal, but we have the potential to add this colour range to our own gardens and as such extend the season of interest.DD Gardening: Autumnal colours have never been better! was last modified: October 30th, 2016 by Gareth AustinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
