Our top young team, imo.  Would have preferred that team on a game in NIR so I could go to it! Well depending on the travel restrictions of course!

Possibly but no-one will ever top György Ring. Best AR we have ever had. Hungary's Darren Cann. Cann himself agrees György is one of the best in the world & coming from him who is right up at the top of that list is a huge compliment. They are both superb young AR's though. Theodorus has been my 2nd fav (to György) for a few seasons now - very naturally talented young man.

bmb , can you describe Balazs Berke  please?

I'm assuming you mean his refereeing style as opposed to me replying 36yrs old, 6'1, slim, dark hair, beautiful dark brown eyes and quite cute! ;) Dreadful hairstyles mind!

He reminds me very much of Clatts. Bit of an arrogant swagger on the pitch, but is lovely and not at all arrogant. His fitness is exceptional, positioning excellent, reads a game very well & gets himself in the best position, can outrun any player on a quick break. Knowledge & application of the LOTG is simply top notch. He was very strict but has calmed slightly with experience and his use of advantages is growing in a very positive way. Very consistent & always fair with both teams. When he does call one wrong he really does so in style & it tends to be a biggie!! (Like Clatts). Very confident in himself mostly in a good way. Will not be told what to do, he will always referee within the LOTG, no amount of directives will change him on a pitch, again like Clatts. Tell him to ignore pushes & he will refuse point blank & punish them regardless as an example. Obviously prepares for games very well, knows the players, teams styles of play and adjusts his position accordingly. Likes to allow a game to flow around him but is not afraid of making the big calls. Often opts for man management ahead of cards, not always correctly, sometimes a yellow has to be given to really calm things down but he is improving in that regard. He has no problem with giving out cards when needed. Very exciting to watch, he has that "wow" factor needed to be a top International referee. Very naturally talented, strong, confident & consistent. Possibly promoted too late to make the elite list but would be easily capable of doing so. His promotion and white badge were delayed as he was considered a bit of a discipline problem down to him doing what he thinks is right as opposed to doing what he is told. By that I'm not suggesting he's not willing to grow & learn because he clearly strives to keep growing as a referee and learns from mistakes but things like directives, he will ignore if doesn't agree with them! If it's in the LOTG he will strive to follow them on the pitch, if it's in a directive telling him to deviate from that even slightly then no chance! Made his EL debut last season in Engordany v Dinamo Tbilisi and put in an absolute masterclass of a performance. It was just wonderful to see.

Dale Johnson on twitter has said " The Champions League preliminary round match between KF Drita and Linfield FC is forfeited by KF Drita 3-0.

The whole Drita squad had been quarantined by Swiss health authorities after two positive COVID tests.

Linfield will now play Legia Warsaw in 1QR."

Interesting that Northern Ireland’s Jamie Robinson make his European debut at the Cardiff City Stadium for the Connahs Quay match. Unusual for a British official to referee a fellow British team in European Competition.

Yes. Positive test for someone from Bratislava - reports suggest the physio. Entire squad now in quarantine due to the local rules on the faroe Islands. Bratislava have until Friday to bring over their reserve team/youth team to play the game or they will forfeit it.

Sounds like a clash going on with UEFA & the local authorities. Under UEFA procol the players are allowed to play if they repeatedly test negative, which they have but the final decision is up to the authorities in the Faroe Isles who have quarantined everyone who arrived on Monday as per their local rules. UEFA are trying to persuade them to release the players testing negative  from quarantine & allow them to play the game. Bratislava have said they will fly further players over.
