The Walsall goalkeeper, Evans was at it with the timewasting the previous week against Stockport and it nearly came back to bite him then too. In fairness Jacob Miles added on ten minutes but why officials don't book them for this early on, I don't know. If they continued after that, show them a second yellow. I am sure it would soon cut out this type of thing.

I wish they would just book goalkeepers for excessive timewasting instead of adding the time on. The minute they are at risk of potentially getting a second yellow which hopefully officials won't shy away from, I am sure they would speed up.

From what I've seen officials have been far happier to show the yellow card for other dissent or timewasting such as kicking the ball away.

I wonder if officials on the talent group will just float around wherever which I think both Nield and Barrott are on. It would kind of defeat the purpose of a group like that if Lewis Smith was officiating in the NL next season when officials who had only done a handful of NL games are now on the Football League list full time.

Swarbrick is VAR on the League Two playoff final so logistically don't think he can do a final day game. Suspect a SG2 referee or even a left field appointment like Barrott will do the Palace v Forest game.

Suspect that may be the case as the final would likely not involve either of those teams. I think possibly Tallis and Ricardo (who has probably done more NL games than Kirk had last season) for the Semis.

I think generally games are being used more as trials these days whereas in the past promotion was generally a fait accompli once they'd had a trial game. I would say Lewis Smith is an EFL ref in all but name after this season. It all depends how many refs come off the list. A few there have been generally steady refs at NL level for a few years like Middleton and Tallis and others who are relatively new even at NL level.

The most likely dead rubbers in League Two on Saturday are being done by Allison who has already benefited from a Championship trial or Lewis / Boyeson who are not likely to be pushed higher up the food chain now. Never seen Duckworth but there are some poor officials in League Two so nice to see them trying to freshen it up a bit.

Sorry for this long piece 😂. Would love to hear others thoughts.

You would suggest Bond and Robinson are the most likely 2 for promotion next season. I think in the last few years, PGMOL has promoted less experienced candidates and its taken them well over a season to settle. I think then the 4 retirements last season has removed stability within the group and made them possibly the least experienced SG1 group I've ever seen. This in my opinion is a factor in the high profile errors made this year. Instilling Bond and Robinson, who've been around a while, is helping to build some experience within the group. They should take less time to settle, meaning regular appointments can be given quicker.

I wouldn't really say it is the newer PL officials who have been making the blunders on the field.

Always thought Daniel Middleton was one of the better ones at NL level. Surprised he hasn't had a chance earlier.

She's certainly one of the best in the lower leagues and thoroughly deserved her Championship opportunity a few weeks ago. Some of her male colleagues could certainly learn something from her.

Riley's an important observer?

VAR continues to be a chocolate fireguard in this country if things like the Fabinho foul are considered OK.

Out of interest have the likes of Reuben Ricardo and Farai Hallam who have regularly took charge of NL games over the last few months officially been promoted? Surprised not to see these names or Lewis Smith's

Welch was excellent at Stockport v Northampton on Saturday so not surprised.

Might have heard of the odd Winter but not heard of many of the others at first names
