The issue with European qualifiers is that there are very few "big" games. Often the matches fighting for 2nd/3rd place are more intense.
Do you just limit the elite guys to games we expect or do you give them games to keep their hand in?

Exactly. Don't forget that every Elite will get at least 2 appointments on these qualifiers (maybe even 3). And we are still on MD2. There are many matches on September that will really require an Elite referee.

Perhaps bmb can provide some information on the Hungarian in charge of our match as I have never heard of Mr. Berke before?

3rd group ref who should have been promoted to the 2nd group this January. Could have made elite if promoted in time but was't... I'd liken him to Clatts maybe, he has that little rebellious side to him and can at times appear a bit cocky/arrogant although I don't think he is.  Fantastic young referee, imo. Very strong, fair & consistent application of the LOTG, fitness outstanding, positioning in the main excellent, reads a game well, decent man management, loves to play an advantage where possible but is not afraid to make a big call. Will not hesitate to book for diving or dissent or fouls if applicable, I mention the first 2 though as it's a common complaint that refs ignore these things - our refs don't! Was the top performing referee of 2020 domestically. His CL debut was a thing of beauty - an absolute flawless masterclass. Is prone to an occasional error and again like Clatts if he is going to get one wrong he tends to do so in spectacular style! He's not the finished article but gets stronger with every game. I'm always happy to see him appointed to one of my teams because you know you are getting a decent, honest referee.

Unless I am missing something, quite a poor appointment for Taylor?

I would add that Ekberg’s appointment seems weird.... with a fairly important observer viewing, is he causing a doubt in the committee about his development?

Many thanks bmb, if he is even one tenth the referee Clattenburg was, I very much look forward to seeing him perform!

Group I
20:45 CET - Serravalle (San Marino Stadium)
SAN MARINO - HUNGARY
Referee: Nicholas Walsh (SCO)
Assistant Referee 1: Douglas Potter (SCO)
Assistant Referee 2: Calum Spence (SCO)
Fourth Official: Donald Robertson (SCO)

FIFA Referee Assessor: Boško Jovanetić (SRB)
FIFA Match Commissioner: Eduard Kindle (LIE)

No complaints with Mr Walsh but my goodness what a dire match! 3 penalties for Hungary - 2 for fouls & 1 for handball. All correct calls. Great save by the San Marino keeper for the 2nd one, he was certainly man of the match tonight. He put in more effort than the entire Hungary team. Hungary failed to turn up in reality, it was a dreadful performance from us & I hope Mr Rossi is launching a few teacups at them in the dressing room! It was very hard going to watch. Still a win is a win and we go onwards! Highlight of the match was definitely the final whistle - Mr Walsh did drop a point from his merit mark for the 3 mins of TAO - the prior 90 mins of torture was more than enough, we did not need anther 3 mins of it!!!

I also had Kovács István's game on in another window - I'm biased but he seemed to have a decent game from what I saw.

I agree, the San Marino goalie was a class act over the two games v England and Hungary. The penalty save v Hungary was top notch!

I only saw the 2nd half of the Albania v England game. Kane's caution seemed 'soft', with Harry doing nothing more than going for the ball in the goalmouth with two defenders, whilst an Albanian player could count himself lucky not to be cautioned for a blatant shirt pull which prevented England building a promising attack. I had a feeling of inconsistency from O Grinfeld but happy to be corrected.

I'm not surprised with the appointment of Bjorn Kuipers for the England v Poland game.

Karasev with an important observer.... I guess another viewing to see if he’s going to the Euro’s.

Still a chance he won’t IMO.

Expected and deserved appointments for Soares Dias and Kuipers. Not a doubt about their Euro spot.

Karasev with an important observer on an easy match. Probably a test for him.

Marciniak is back on a low difficulty match. Perfect way to recover.

If Mr Taylor is the adventurous sort he could, and perhaps he is, as I speak, catching the train to Podgorica.

Montenegro isn't easy to get to, or across, but if he wants he could fly to Belgrade, and book a return on the Belgrade to Bar service. Train travel isn't Serbia's strongest suit, for because of the concern over the laying of the track, most travel, and for many hours, at only 20 mph!  Starting a journey in Budapest, where I might add I was not welcomed in any "come hither" way by Bmb, via Subotica and Novi Sad tests your will, and if you haven't packed enough paperbacks, it's almost a day without end.

 Assuming Mr Taylor overnighted in Belgrade, a day before the game he'd be hopping on the service to Bar, a coastal resort in Montenegro."Service" is probably a bit too strong a word for it, unless you like your twelve hour journey without running water, flushing toilets and minimal buffet, but what you do get are border checks leaving Serbia, entering Bosnia Herzegovina, leaving Bosnia Herzegovina and entering Montenegro, and views from up on high that are out of this World! It is a must trip, and in a non covid europe, it ought to be on anyone's bucket list. There's a chance of a low speed high altitude derailment too, to keep you paying attention!

Travel, they say, is not about the arriving, so come on Mr Taylor, enjoy the trip, and who cares about the game?

I think he'll be happy to get a flight via Belgrade to Podgorica, especially during covid times.

The expected masterclass from Bjorn Kuipers at Wembley, and fully deserved the praise from the ITV commentary team.
