When Bobby was in his exile in Norway, he was quite active on Twitter. I had a few jovial exchanges with him, which led to us swapping a small number of DMs.

We both know a SG2 assistant, which helped, but at no time were his dealings with me arrogant or dismissive. He was very open to discussions and had a sound recall of some games I mentioned to him.

I've seen him referee four games since he returned, albeit three of him via iFollow during the behind closed door seasons. While he wasn't faultless and made some poor decisions, it was clear his presence afforded him a greater deal of respect from the players, which certainly helped the games.

Of course, others have different views, but there are some incredibly harsh, personal comments on this thread which may have been deleted or edited on a different day.

I wish him well and am only sorry I'm unlikely to see him more often in future.

Agree completely. I thought he was the best referee to officiate at Portman Road last season by the proverbial country mile.

And I am sure Newport continue to regard his performance in the Division 2 play off final at Wembley v Morecambe last year with anger. A tale of 2 penalties if you recall

I had a feeling all along that Madley would get back in somehow.
Call me old fashioned but I am disappointed that he has been promoted after his previous misdemeanours and turning his back on English football Togo to Norway. To me it gives out a negative message to all those decent refs who toil hard season by season, being respectful towards their employers and grateful for the position they are in but who get regularly overlooked. The cynic in me also notes that Clattenburg was suspended for a time, came back and the rest is history; even Coote was suspended for a time for reasons which were never made clear and look where he is now. Maybe being something of a rebel is the way to ultimately get on.
I realise all this doesn’t address whether Madley is good enough or not.I have always made it clear that, to me, he is a very overrated and (personal comment edited out! )referee who has been lucky - and even luckier now - to get where he has. That opinion still holds.
Congrats by the way to James Bell about whom I know very little. Sorry for Ben Toner, who I rate very highly, and others such as Backhouse and Borrett who must have been close .

I think it ought to be put on record that David Coote very quickly made his way back to full time refereeing, suggesting that, unlike Darren Deadman, who was suspended at the same time and left the list, Coote did nothing wrong. Love them or loathe them, a person is innocent until proved otherwise.   

Conjecture. He might have just had the right people backing him.
Which is equally just conjecture.
Absolutely, hence my use of the word "might".

I do, but if we base everything on one game, no referee would ever get anywhere.

The full National List, with home areas, can be found via the link below. Unlike last season they have included assistants too.
