R Madley (Crawley v Bolton)
« on: Sun 09 May 2021 14:21 »
I believe I saw Mr Madley make an appearance on a live game yesterday, the first since his return?

I didnít see the whole game, only the first 10 minutes. Did anybody see how he got on? Iím guessing he must be high up in the rankings to be given a live TV game at this stage. Is that usually a sign of a possible play off or a promotion?

Possibly - being given a play off game would normally be an indicator of being a candidate for promotion.  Of course, so would being given a trial game in the Championship, which he wasn't given (and one who did looks to have blown his chances for this season).

I thought he was good yesterday in what was in reality an ďeasyĒ game to referee. He got the red card correct, both yellows were justified.

Personally, Iíd like to see him promoted to Select Group 2 next season, I think he is generally a solid performer and they way I look at it is as a Cardiff fan is, who would I rather referee our matches the likes of Ward, Langford, Simpson, Doughty or Bobby Madley. I think I would go for Madley every day of the week. I think this says more about the current standard of the Championship refereeís though rather than Bobby haha.

I think realistically he wonít be promoted, in the past few seasons they have surprisingly promoted a lot of first year national list referees.

Ironically, being given Championship trial matches in the last few seasons seems to have been a curse and has not guaranteed promotion. Last season, Coggins and Backhouse were given trial matches and neither were promoted and in the season before that Ross Joyce was given two trial games and he too didnít get promoted.

I think Hicks and Abram all are the ones given trials this year. Interesting to see if this leads to anything for either of them next season

Yes he did, but he's the one I was referring to who blew his chances - thanks to his performance in the Peterborough v Lincoln game.

Maybe just an indication of the poor judgement of those who determine who should be granted a "trial game" or two.

I can't give you chapter and verse but I do believe that some have been promoted without any trial match first. All very strange.

In the case of Madley a trial match would seem rather pointless wouldnít it. Those games surely are to see if a referee can handle a game at that level. Having been a FIFA referee Iím sure those in the ivory towers would be fairly sure that he would be capable of that and maybe thatís why there was no trial game there

When are play off appointments usually released? And are first and second legs released at the same time?

i agree, i think he will be promoted to SG2 and then to SG1 within a few seasons.

not sure when they are released but i dont think they are released together, a few days apart. I might be wrong though
