In my opinion, I feel that throwing Kavanagh into such a massive game is not the best decision after not having a game since March 2nd

Would unfortunately suggest that Atkinson was originally down for BHA V EVE. Good appointment for England none the less.

Overall, good set of appointments except for Kavanagh

He refereed Watford v Sheffield Wednesday on Friday.

I would suggest that there are better options considering his situation. Oliver and Taylor being the obvious ones or even Attwell or Moss

His situation?

Hes been out of PL action since Man City Wolves on March 2nd with Covid/ Covid close contact. He has only refereed one game since his return which was in the Championship. All I am saying is that it wasn't exactly Mike Rileys best idea throwing him into such a big game having not refereed in the PL for 6 weeks and only 1 game in the last 5 weeks! On any other day I'd say he deserves it but at the moment there are better options (Attwell, Moss, Taylor, Oliver)

I would substitute pawson for moss in your list of better options, for me moss is certainly not a better option. Edited to fix quote-Hertsref
