It will be interesting to see how important UEFA view these play offs.

Do you:
(a) Appoint referees from the lower third of the Elite group and say "here is your chance" or
(b) follow the Champions League example (where play offs are seen as v important) and appoint Cakir, Brych, Kuipers etc?

I would say the second option. The referees will have been chosen for Euro 2020 by then presumably so would make sense to pretty much use them for the 12 games.

I wonder if they'll use VAR or wait until the Euros?

I would hope given the importance of the matches for the teams involved that the likes of Cakir, Brych, Kuipers etc will be used.

Hungary v Romania if it happened would need a very strong referee, it is a bit of a bloodbath at best! Sadly if it does happen I fear it will be remembered for which set of ultras managed to boo the loudest during the opposing anthems, which set of ultras won the street battle before and after the game & possibly even during it and how big the fines are for each country for the racism!!  The pyros would be awesome though! If you go onto youtube and search for either anthem at a game between the 2, you will see how hostile the atmosphere is. I wish it would stop and I can imagine both FAs are hoping it doesn't happen. I would certainly go but wouldn't even wear my Hungary scarf even in the relative safety of the press box! Hungary however haven't won in Bulgaria for 53 years and Iceland will be no push over for Romania especially away from home. The Iceland fans are amazing!

Also a potential for Northern Ireland to play the Republic of Ireland (again not counting chickens...). It would be very loud! That would need a strong referee as well but I don't think it would be a hostile game.

Let's hope Hategan performs better than the NI play-off for WC 2018! At least he's got VAR this time...

Kuipers, Brych and one English representative are certain locks for the finals now. Not sure where the fourth team will come from however...

And let’s hope that the Englishman comes from Ashington and not Wythenshawe!

Despite the fact that the finals are a month away I would say that Brych, Kuipers, Taylor and Del Cerro Grande will get the finals.

I would be very surprised to see someone like Aytekin, Zwayer or Sidiropoulos on any of those matches.
I know that I know nothing

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.

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

Path A:
Iceland v Romania
Bulgaria v Hungary

Not sure if I am delighted or disappointed that it will be Hungary v Iceland!

Going to be a very difficult game but at least it will be about the football and not which set of ultras can misbehave the most.

4 refs for the 4 path finals-i think Taylor,Oliver, Brych,and 1 other probably go with the more experienced especially with a place at the euros at stake

I wouldn’t say Oliver. I’d probably go for brych, taylor, kuipers/makkelie and either marciniak or Cakir

Hungary's game v Iceland is now behind closed doors.  It was a sell out crowd.  The MLSZ will be reimbursing all ticket costs.

I have a UEFA accredited press ticket but have been refused permission to travel. I expected that after being refused travel for the Fradi CL game.  I'm told though that only reporters & cameramen from M4 sports are going to be allowed into the stadium & everyone else has to use the M4 camera feeds to cover the game. One of the guys from Nemzeti Sport (the official national sports newspaper) has said they have been told by the MLSZ that they are not allowed entry either. M4 are very good about giving us all extra access including to interviews and pressers that aren't shown on TV.

I only really wanted to go as it meant I could sneak in as many as 36 hrs with Mr bmb!
