Switched over late in the Scotland game this afternoon, I think that it was already 5-0, it must have been very close to being abandoned with that amount of surface water that kept stopping the ball? What do others think?

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”  Laurence Binyon

Undoubtedly it should have been abandoned at half time. Ridiculously I was sitting hoping Declan Gallagher didn't get on as it looked like an injury waiting to happen. Normally I'd champion any Motherwell player to get on.

Also the free kick in the lead up to the 6th goal was hilarious. Ref didn't give a clear one in the centre circle and the ball ran through to the keeper who picked it up outside the area and that was the free kick that was given and inevitably we scored.

Thought Kuipers was poor last night. Despite some correct carding there was one challenge when Wales were breaking which was completely deliberate and miles from the ball which wasn’t carded.

I would expect better from one of the top elite UEFA officials.

A dreadful pitch for the Switzerland v Eire game... more like a muddy woodland park than a football surface.

Massive game for Taylor as 1st play 3rd - France are the 2nd team in that group.  Taylor certainly seems to be the English referee with the big appointments in Europe.

I think that Taylor almost certainly goes to Euros unless he makes a particularly bad mistake, etc - only question in my mind really is if Oliver goes as well or if it's just Taylor.

Risky as Vad has not done a game even domestically since 3rd August! I'd have thought it wiser to check he is fully match fit in a domestic game first. He's a very fit guy normally though, he obviously spends time in the gym working out etc. but still seems a risk to me to test him out in an International game when he has been out injured for 3 months. Nice to see our top referee out as well, he'll not be sat in front of the press box at the new International stadium opener then!

Currently 26 UEFA Elite referees, I cannot see how more than 2 from each country will be selected so that trims 2 Germans and 1 Spaniard. There are a couple for whom it is too early Bastien for one. Plus there may be a couple of the older hands who will retire or shown to be past their best.

I think it will be a minimum of 18 refs appointed so I believe both Taylor and Oliver will get games

Certainly about two years ago Taylor was regarded as the best English referee when it came to both domestic and international appointments. However, what I hear emanating from parts of the FA is this. Both are regarded as excellent referees and most worthy of appointments to domestic and international competition matches, however Oliver is now shading it over Taylor and establishing himself as the number 1, the postion occupied by Clattenburg, Webb, Poll, Courtney and the great late Jack Taylor OBE, in years past

And my opinion, for what it's worth, is that both Taylor and Oliver will go to the Euros.

Important observer for Marciniak. Not sure Wales will be thrilled with the erratic Aytekin.
