Unexpected appointments in League A. Probably UKR-ESP needed an Elite referee.

I think it is a great opportunity to try these refs out on the "bigger" games, never as much pressure without the crowd.
If they cannot manage these games they wont cope when you put a baying audience back in.

I think that it should be better to use younger referees and give them experience before a possible CL match.

Both Gil and Buquet are simply too old for the Elite Group.

I will bow to your much proven knowledge of European referees.
I thought Rossetti was trying out some different things but maybe not radical enough to give the new generation a chance

An expected appointment for Pawson. However it doesn't change anything in terms of consideration by the committee. Experienced observer but not a very big name.

Taylor's appointment means that Rosetti was happy with his performance on the USC. And it confirms that in the eyes of UEFA Taylor is definitely on the "upper" Elite group.

Yes and No! 

Love him as a referee and he is certainly one of the best going, so in those terms yes.  I am however very harsh and unforgiving when it comes to the NT games! I have still not forgiven Clatts for his (perfectly correct) booking of Gera in the Norway v Hungary play off match on 12.11.2015 and may well have mentioned it to him (translate moaned at) once or twice (translate dozens of times) in the intervening years!

Whilst there is a rivalry between the teams, it's actually not particularly hostile, there is a tentative friendship between the countries these days and there's certainly not the hatred that you would perhaps expect in the still early years post occupation. There is a rather strange kinship between Hungary & Russia. I can understand an elite ref for the game though with history in mind but to be honest that would be more needed in a game v Romania and possibly Serbia. Without both sets of ultras there though the Serbia game should be less hostile. A Hungary v Romania game will always be off the charts in terms of toxicity, the hatred runs deep.

It was about time there were a few English teams floating around Europe.

It’s disappointing that Taylor is still seen as the number one in UEFA’s eyes. Had Oliver had an important observer then there could have still be a chance for that ideology to change, but it seems it’s set in stone.

Incidentally, is Florent Batta the son of Marc Batta?

New referee for me to watch.

I have press tickets for tonight and Thursday but the travel is just too nightmarish so have decided to watch M4 sports instead!

Schärer is considered the best Swiss referee and a future Elite. He is on the committee's radar since last year and had some important observers (Vassaras and Fandel).

I can see why he is highly regarded. Barely noticed him tonight. 2 big calls, pen shout for each team, neither given & I think he was correct with both. Fitness excellent, movement around the pitch excellent, man management superb, a few yellow cards, mostly for Hungarian players, that were correct calls imo. Good game to watch, even better result! Bring on the Ruskik!

PS He wore blue, which is always a bonus with Missy bmb and was also rather handsome!
