Not a great appointment for Wales v Hungary, and IMO not sensible given the last time Hategan messed up on British soil. Cakir or one of the safe hands would have been much more pragmatic. He does however have an important observer.

Scotland have the pleasure of Basil Fawlty for their last match.

I don't think  the fact Hategan did poorly in a game in Northern Ireland should prevent him doing a game in Wales two years later (apart from if it was felt to be symbolic of his general performance level.)

He seems well-established in UEFA refereeing and seems very likely to go to Euro 2020, so no reason he shouldn't get the game.

Try telling that to a Northern Irish person, whose secondary residency is in Hungary...

I will be watching from the press box. Very small contingent of Hungarian press going so we're having a late lunch together & then onto the game, we're staying at the same hotel as our team!

The Polish referee Pawel Gil didn't have much to do in tonight's Kosovo v England game, but he did seem benevolent towards Harry Winks in the 1st half, with one foul in particular which should have been yellow carded after the Kosovo advantage ended. The lack of a card and the card issued to a Kosovo player in the 2nd half for a similar foul showed a lack of consistency, which was a pity in my view as this was an entertaining game in which both sides tried to play attacking football.

It's not even just that.  Last International game Hungary had a 1 match behind closed doors ban (quite rightly as I have previously said) due to anti Romanian chants throughout the game from the Ultras. Within days of that Kovács István was racially abused when refereeing a derby match in Romania for being ethnic Hungarian. There is a hatred between the 2 nations going back centuries that is not going away anytime soon despite the best efforts of many to try and rid BOTH nations of it.  Dr Csányi has been all over the Hungarian media the past 2 weeks literally begging the Ultras to cut out the anti Romanian stuff at games because it harms our National Team so UEFA respond by appointing a Romanian ref to a crucial Hungarian game. There are now ultras travelling to the game who weren't going before & I'm pretty sure it's with the intent to chant anti Romanian stuff for 90 mins! Ridiculous on the part of UEFA to appoint a Romanian referee at a time when Hungary have just had a 1 match ban for anti Romanian chants. Dr Csányi is really trying to stamp it out & will issue lifetime bans to anyone found guilty of the chants but UEFA are not helping him in his efforts. I don't think Kovács István can referee Hungary competitively because although he is technically Romanian he is ethnic Hungarian & I believe has Hungarian citizenship.

On a personal level I will add I can't stand him as a referee because of the Northern Ireland game, his worst but not his only poor game, imo, & not because he is Romanian.  Hategan's nationality doesn't bother me in the slightest. His ability to destroy my NT games however does! My best friend is an ethnic Hungarian born in Romania.

Usual rubbish from Nijhuis at Hampden. Should have been a red for a nasty studs up challenge by a Khazak player and how Burke wasn't given a penalty for a blatant foul on 84 mins was puzzling.

Can't say I was overly impressed with Hategan tonight.  Very inconsistent, an example Patkai was climbing all over a Welsh player, hands on his shoulder literally holding him down, nothing given but within 2 mins a Welsh player did the same to a Hungarian player & free kick instantly given.  Lots of similar inconsistencies throughout the game in respect of both teams.  Wales were literally playing Hungary off the park, a far superior team and Hungary resorted to persistent silly fouls - we were not pretty to watch! No yellow cards until the 65th minute by which time we could have had by my reckoning 5 different players booked for persistent fouling. I like lenient referees but sometimes you can be too lenient. The silly little fouls had reached ridiculous levels before he took any action. We have someone totting up Baráth's fouls & I have my money on him committing more fouls that there were shots by both teams, seriously he was embarrassing and the total will be over 12-15 before he finally got a YC. Penalty shout for Hungary in the 1st half, which he quite rightly waved away, there was a slight push but nowhere near enough for a penalty imo. He did play a couple of lovely advantages for Wales, none for Hungary but we would have had to actually do some attacking for that opportunity to occur! His fitness was excellent, positioning decent and he built up a good rapport with players from both teams. Nothing majorly wrong, with his refereeing anyway, Hungary's defending on the other hand... Just very inconsistent & difficult to know what was and wasn't a foul as it was pot luck if he gave a kick or not. A smiley overly lenient performance.

Thankfully I did not hear any anti Romanian chanting from the ultras. This is of course may partially be due to them being drowned out by a very loud and melodic home crowd but hopefully the spotters there to ensure it didn't happen, yet again, didn't hear any either! I do sincerely hope it's because the ultras have listened to Dr Csányi & didn't go there.  He was in attendance along with our PM. Always good to see them supporting the team & wearing the NT colours even in the posh area!! They were both belting out the National Anthem as well! I like Dr Csányi, I think he represents the federation very well & is a genuine football man. He tries to do right for the game in general.

The Welsh fans were superb, spine tingling when they sung their anthem, I know it is stereotypical but the Welsh do sing beautifully. No wonder they gave us some pitying looks with our out of key effort at our National Anthem!

The far better team won on the night & whilst gutted I have no complaints with the scoreline. Congrats to Wales for qualifying for the Euros. As for us, well play offs here we come - again!

Just as a PS:

Germany – Northern Ireland
Referee: Carlos Del Cerro Grande (ESP)

Oh my... Totty alert!  :o

Other than that I am pretending this game didn't happen! I am in denial so leave me be! The big question is do I go for a pálinka with a whiskey chaser or a whiskey with a pálinka chaser!!  :-\

I watched the match as well and I echo the sentiments about Hategan. Very lenient approach and literally he did nothing to stop Hungary from fouling all the time. His performance reminded me one of a FIFA tournament. He seemed to try hard to keep the cautions on his pocket at any cost.

Clear example is N5 from Hungary with did over 10 fouls to the match and wasn't booked. Unbelievable.

That is Baráth who I specifically mentioned and guesstimated 12-15 fouls from him. I thought he did get booked in the end? Embarrassing from him anyway!!

I'm not counting chickens here but this path has the potential to get very messy!

Path A:
Iceland v Romania
Bulgaria v Hungary

A potential Romania - Hungary PO Final would be the hotter match. Kuipers or Brych would be my choices.
