Manchester City fans may have flashbacks to 2014 and a Martin Demichelis red card with news that Swedish referee Jonas Eriksson has been placed in charge of tomorrow’s Champions League tie against FC Basel.

City will face the Swiss champions in the first-leg of their Round of 16 draw, and it will be 43-year-old Eriksson with the whistle for his third Man City game.

The Blues have yet to win when Eriksson has had the whistle, with his first appointment coming all the way back in 2011 and the club’s introduction to the Champions League, a 1-1 draw against Napoli in which he handed out 5 yellow cards (only 1 to City).

More recently and vivid in the mind is the Round of 16 first-leg against Barcelona at the Etihad in 2016, when the game was finely poised at 0-0 before Eriksson sent off Demichelis for a challenge that was outside the box – but a penalty was given. Lionel Messi stepped up, scored, and City went on to lose 2-0.

Eriksson’s most recent Basel appointment was their shock 1-0 win over Liverpool in October 2014.

Pep Guardiola will hope for a much better result than Eriksson’s previous in charge of City when his team visit St. Jakob-Park tomorrow.

Full list of appointments for FC Basel vs. Manchester City:

Referee: Jonas Eriksson (SWE)
Assistant referees: Mathias Klasenius (SWE), Daniel Wärnmark (SWE)
Additional assistant referees: Andreas Ekberg (SWE), Stefan Johannesson (SWE)
Fourth official: Mehmet Culum (SWE)


UEFA hate us and will transmit that hatred to the CL refs - there’s no fucking way we are ever going to be allowed to win 1 nil against anyone so we have to take our chances and score 2 or 3 against anyone we play against .


Now about those two beers Carl ----- Wembley?


I wish I could mate but right now I’m tooooooo busy this side of the pond - I’ll be there for the title celebration though ))

You shouldn't let yourself down with shit like this chinners mate.

He did his job properly for the most part, as have numerous referees that officiated our games this season, for the first time in quite a few seasons.

That's hardly remarkable. It's what should be commonplace.

But none of that means there hasn't been some remarkably poor officiating in some games.

Hence the remarks.

I think you know this brother. I really do.

UEFA has told referees to protect players better by clamping down on serious foul play in European club competitions.

With the Champions League and Europa League set to resume this week, UEFA's chief refereeing officer Pierluigi Collina has asked officials to take firm action against players who commit reckless challenges.

The guidance comes less than a fortnight after Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola asked English referees to look after the game's "artists" by dealing with dangerous tackles more harshly.

In a statement, Collina said: "We need to have players playing, so they must be protected on the field.

"We do not want situations where a player's future is put in doubt because of serious injury caused by a challenge, whether it is intentional, or is unintentional and the player making the challenge is taking a risk of causing injury.

"Players must understand that they have to respect their opponents and show the same positive behaviour to them that they would want to receive themselves.

My only problem with this is a my complete lack of trust in these 'headline pronouncements'.

Major institutions, politicians and the media are all guilty of promises and statements of policies, made in the public glare to convince and con the 'sheeple', only to then ignore or 'u' turn or allow what they have said to gently and quietly fade away.

I respect Collina, he was a top ref but do I trust UeFA, our FA, POGMOL?
I think this a 'wait and see' issue, we will know soon enough if the new policy becomes reality.

Not too bad, we've only lost 2 of the 12 games when he's been ref, mind 1 was the FA Cup semi final v Arsenal

The very man who was in charge of the City v Spurs game earlier this season and we all know of the tackles he allowed in that game.
He was also the twatwho allowed Arsenal to kick seven colours of shite out of us in the Arsenal semi last season.Considering Collina's 'ref's have to protect players' pronouncement, this tells us all we need to know about how our football institutions regard UeFA's wishes.

NOT IMPRESSED ONE BIT.

At least the corrupt linesman from last year's semi final is not at the league cup final.

Last years semi officials were
Referee: Craig Pawson
Assistant Referees: Simon Bennett & Steve Child
Fourth Official: Stuart Attwell

This year's league cup final is
Referee Craig: Pawson
Assistant Referees Gary Beswick & Adam Nunn. Fourth Official: Graham Scott

stupid question, im sure, but wtf does the fourth official do besides preside over the substitutions and hold up the added time board?
i know they're the backup in case one of the 3 officials gets injured but can the 4th make any calls or anything?
I'm not really a City fan. I'm just here for attention.
