IMO, Taylor simply suits better to the UEFA style of refereeing. Always focused, quickly making (big) decisions, firmer presence and less error-prone than Oliver so far what could be the most important factor. I already wrote that somewhere that Oliver is clearly ahead of Taylor in Premier League but it's the other way round in UEFA. In addition, Oliver has much time to develope in UEFA (34yo) while Taylor is already 41yo.

An interesting summary. In terms of styles, I guess I would say Taylor's is more similar to Webb's and Oliver's is more similar to Clattenburg's. I always slightly preferred Clattenburg to Webb and equally slightly prefer Oliver to Taylor although much of that is just personal preference.
