I genuinely don't know how Taylor can be considered one of the best referees - it doesn't say much for the rest.

I thought he was poor yesterday. The second half incident when Wilf was fouled on the edge of the Watford penalty area could have been swiftly dealt with by giving a yellow card ( merited ) to the defender. Instead he took no action which resulted in tempers boiling over on both sides, at which point he had no control. And that contributed to the 5 minutes added on at the end of the game.

I rest my case , he (Taylor ) was poor again. In a game where there is plenty of recent bad feeling between both sides, he didnít have a handle on it.

I thought Taylor was poor yesterday when it came to Wilf incidents. People have already mentioned Wilf's booking for a first innocuous offence, but soon after Taylor missed a clear trip on Wilf. I got the impression he simply has it in for Wilf given previous issues in Palace matches.
Also, why on earth was he letting Deeney give him an earful before the start of the second half?

Didnít see the bellboy/PVA incident from my vantage point, what happened?
Questions need to be asked why he was so quick to book Wilf but seemed reluctant to book Capoue. I do think some refs have it in for Wilf. Did his foul warrant a yellow card? Not when you compare it to what Capoue got away with

Sorry for the delayed reply:

Very late in the game, Watford got a corner. A ball boy did his job but as he picked the ball up, a Watford player (almost certainly Capoue) snatched the ball from the kid's hands and had a go at him. The ball boy stood up to him (to his huge credit) by clearly defending that he was just doing his job. PVA stepped in but within seconds 'Capoue/A.N.Other' threw the ball at PVA and then pushed him hard in the chest.
I genuinely thought it would result in a nailed-on red so was totally stunned when both players were spoken to and Watford just allowed to get on with the corner.
