Meszoly Geza? I like Pisont as a person, and he's had good results, but that is a different level.
Again, I was just saying that Egri's mission is to qualify the team to 2016. Of course poeple wanted results earlier - and especially the players, the management - but I always said that I do not expect this to happen.
And "reform" is an empty word if it just means, something, somebody, somehow, must change. There was no systemic change in Hu foci until three years, ago, except the academies started in the 2000s. No everything is changing - from infrasturcture to rules to preparation. But, but, but - the kids who are growing up in the new system are barely in their teens, some a bit more. As said, I am waiting to see some real marks by the middle of the decade. Germany's complete system overhaul (we've discussed it many times, I also posted online their reform strategy) also took at least half a decade. And they were starting from a better position anyhow. 2018 should be a good place to really see thorough overhaul, but I expect results earlier.
Let's just take two elements:
- stadium building: they are on target with that
- training of coaches, at all level: I do not know, but I do not see that happening, not visibly; I know they are doing it, as I am reading about training and continuing education at national level for all NB1 etc coaches, but I would like to see the younger ones come up; also, the key would be to have very well prepared coaches at youth level, and I mean preparing the 12 year olds, at local level, at various clubs. That was one of the important components of both the German and the Spanish model. BUt that is something we can not see ":through the internet" - you need to be in the system, on the ground, to perceive that.
Anyhow, I am quite optimistic - and pragmatically so, not based on some fantasies - because this is the first time I have ever seen a country from Central Eastern Europe re-structuring their entire foci culture.
Of course, the fans want results now, immediately - it won't happen. This is why I did not expect them to qualify this time, because it would have been unrealistic, notwithstanding the clear improvement of the NT. The thinness of the Nt roster proves that the waves of young, prepared
players have not yet come out of the system. Still some time until then.
