When PLC was in charge of UEFA, Oliver was his favorite referee. He did a CL R16 shortly after his promotion to the Elite Group. Now PLC has moved to FIFA.

With Rosetti in charge of UEFA, Taylor has got many significant appointments. It seems that he considers him the best English referee.

Rosetti observing Turpin is interesting...perhaps he is in contention for a final this year?

Probably. When PLC's name appeared on the appointments, there was always a reason.

What's happened to Cakir? He doesn't seem to have had a UEFA appointment for ages but has continued refereeing in Turkey I believe?

Regarding Taylor/Oliver, I have always tended to rate significantly higher but in fairness I think Taylor has kicked on a lot over the past season and has performed well in his UEFA appointments (as has Oliver from what I've seen.)

With Rosetti in charge of UEFA, Taylor has got many significant appointments. It seems that he considers him the best English referee.

An interesting point edy.  Wasn't it Collina that wanted Clattenburg for the Euros in 2016, and as previously commented, the FA (Ellery?) wanted Atkinson so they both went. 

I don't whether it would be a factor, at least not yet, but Taylor is 41 and Oliver only 34, despite their both joining the SG at the same time as I recall. Was it 2010?  Would that mean Taylor has only one chance of the WC in Qatar in 2022, whereas Oliver potentially has two and possibly 3 if he were still eligible
in 2030?

Much as I would prefer both to go to the Euros next year, I'm not sure England would get 2 representatives appointed again, and the evidence does suggest it's more likely to be Taylor. 

Have to say, as Readingfan mentions, that in the European and International games I've seen over the past 12 months, both have had some good performances.  I've not read any reports either to indicate otherwise.

I think Oliver is the strong favourite for 2022 - he's done well at FIFA tournaments and attended a WC seminar earlier in the year I believe.

When I get a moment, I will start a thread about Euro 2020 referees (unless someone gets there first!) I think it's quite possible quite a few countries will have two representatives. if so, then England should have a good chance. If it was just a 'one-off exception' again you'd probably say Netherlands was more likely and Spain/Germany just as likely.

Yes, that's correct. PLC wanted Clattenburg and Elleray wanted Atkinson. They both went.

But there is another factor to consider. There were 18 referees selected and not 12 as on EURO 2012. If the spots were only 12, I would bet that only Clatts would go.

This time we don't know the spots. Don't forget that 12 cities will host Euro matches. So it is possible that the entire Elite category will be chosen.

Exactly my thinking. No point having an Elite list if its not going to be used

It's an interesting point about the expanded format of Euro 2020 in terms of being across 12 host cities. I think that might increase the number of FOs and VARs (if VAR isn't done from one central location.)

I still think 18 referees is probably about right though - that's 2 games each in the group stage. There shouldn't be any issue with an official refereeing in Baku on the opening Saturday and Bilbao a week later for instance.

I would be tempted to add in the R16 games and have 22 refs do 2 games each. Then cut to 8 or 10 refs for the quarter finals onwards.
Will also be interesting to see if there is a CORE VAR team or if each referee will have his (or her) own

I felt the Bulgarian Kabakov was inconsistent in last night's Tottenham game. Examples included the cautioning of Aiderweireid when the Spurs player clearly played the ball and did not touch the Olympiacos player, and a foul given against a Spurs player when the Olympiacos player clearly and deliberately backed into his opponent. I don't think Hugh Dallas would have been too impressed with this performance. One amusing aspect of the cautioning of the Spurs player came when Kabakov proceeded to write down all the details of the perceived foul in his notebook, rather than merely showing the card and noting the player's number. Very old school which was picked up by the BT commentator, but it did mean a further delay in restarting play on a night when free kicks, foam spraying and generally getting players back the required distance resulted in frequent delays in play. A good evening for Spurs and Mourinho (and a certain ball boy) but, oh my, how grateful they must have been to Meriah for kicking thin air rather than the ball in the moments before half time!
