I am pleased, if a tad surprised, at Gillett's appointment. The Brighton v Palace fixture may appear to be routine in terms of current PL placings, but it is a 'derby' with history which is always keenly awaited when the fixtures are announced. I wish Mr Gillett and his team all the best for this TV game.

When one thinks of some of the really good referees of yesteryear who never got awarded either the FA or League Cup Final, it is extraordinary to think that a referee of moderate ability like Jon Moss has had them both. However, the olden days were by no means perfect for they also threw up their share of extraordinary ( considering the paucity of their talent ) double Cup Final appointees among whom I would include Gordon Kew, Roger Milford ( contentious this choice as I know some really rated him ), Keith Hackett,  Mike Riley and most notably Peter Willis whom to call moderate is to be exceedingly generous.

There were also many fine referees who received the double Final honour, most particularly Jack Taylor, George Courtney, Neil Midgley, Joe Worrall (of course) and Peter Jones and others besides, I am sure.

Burnley V Leicester tomorrow is off, I believe at Burnley's request.

Leicester are in danger of having a huge fixture pile-up if they progress in both Europa Conference and FA Cup - they have games against Chelsea, Burnley and Everton to re-arrange.

I guess there must be some doubt about burnley v watford next tue too if it is mainly covid cases.

To that list I would undoubtedly add Kerren Barrett.
With due respect to all concerned I find it worrying that the likes of Coote and to a lesser degree Banks will probably end up with the F A cup final at some stage

Also Atkinson is now in the EFL at Derby replacing Graham Scott.

His last Championship game was the play off final Fulham v Brentford IIRC.

I found myself agreeing with nearly all the referees listed in both categories.  As Whistleblower mentions, some really rated Milford and I must admit I rather enjoyed watching him referee for most of his career, perhaps influenced at the time by his 'matey' style.  However, his FA Cup Final performance and those awful Gascoigne challenges persuaded me I'd been misguided. 

Of those who received the double of Finals, I don't recall seeing a lot of Peter Jones although I know he was very well respected. But Taylor, Courtney, Midgley and Worrall were all referees I thought were superb and were certainly 4 of my favourites from past decades. I would add Pat Partridge who also refereed both the FA Cup and League Cup Finals.  In the 1978 World Cup where he was England's representative, he was perhaps unlucky only to get 1 game in the middle and 2 line appointments.  I think he only refereed a single match in the 1980 European Championships too.

So thanks Whistleblower.  Some great names there as well as the 'moderates'.

Sorry to go off topic but I enjoy the nostalgia.

I would guess covid as most injuries mean they can go to VAR

Jim Parker from Preston… the ultimate card shark.

I’m sure others on here remember his strict disciplinary measures?!
