Yo yo yo! I have a very positive vibe about this game if Dzsudzsak isn't starting, fact is we lost way too many games with him as captain. I do like the new setup and manager. Too early to handicap it but if the price is right I may put down a 'dime' or $100 buckaroos on the good merry band.

I think we saw enough of Dzsudzsak's game over the years to learn we were on perennial losing teams when he was captain. The magical fall of 2015 and summer of 2016 was the exception. When the game comes right down to it, we're we winners when he was playing with the men? The answer is no, the facts are these, we lost more games with him in the lineup then we won.

We have to ask how many games have we won and lost and who was in the lineup, who was lacking and who was excelling. I though he was a set-piece brilliant place-kicker maestro though. It might be time to move on without Dzsudzsak, our primadonna star lost his mojo and is now without a club, but that's for the head manager to answer.

But hey, on the sunny side, the new provisional captain Adam Szalai is 50/50, 1 lost, 1 impressive win.

match tickets? always depends on the country the games are played in, I think to remember they were less than 10€ in Moldova and Albania, 15€ in Portugal and Romania, 40€ in Holland and 50€ in Finland. Estonia will be probably around the Portugal-Romania price class

I'm just surprised. Before it was he's scored this many goals, coming up on 100 caps etc. Now it's we couldn't win with him, even though we were losing with him before too

I'm mostly in agreement though. Just he was (and think still is) capable of being much better than has been for the majority of his NT career.

Not bad at all. Can one drink and get tipsy before the game and enter? or do they have beer-sellers running up and down the terraces like in the USA.

Dzsudzsak certainly is an enigma, in terms of stamina and swiftness with the ball he's up there with Czibor, in terms of his place-kicking off corners and set-pieces he's one of the best. The image I have Dzsudzsak is of a two-dimensional player streaking down the field's periphery, looking once inside and then pumping the ball into the box with an erratic or a true cross.


There's no question that he isn't one of the fastest player on the field and his endurance is probably legendary and very good, his heart and game fierceness is there, but there is something lacking: special spatial awareness in the interior of the field or to produce combinations with this teammates inside the field. I know he was nearing almost 100 caps, but really leave it up to the true experts to sort out the weak links on the team. The team we saw against Greek was a pretty good one, there was real "quality" those last two games. Let's see what Rossi decides and how he'll approach the Estonian game.

you can drink as much you want before game in pubs and on street, then leave any drinks outside stadium, then inside it‘s Uefa rules, no alcohol on international games

league games are different, but you have the classical büfé, no running beer-sellers

Is Estonia-Hungary the next game? Isn't it Greece-Hun?

Without Jesus, a hopeless end. With him, an endless hope.

Whenever szövi goes to a game.. Hungary wins.

Now I see why you're not going to Greece. How very smooth!

from the away games I went to

we lost in Lisbon, Bucarest, Amsterdam and Manchester

we won in Helsinki, Tallinn, Chišinau and Tirana

never saw a döntetlen

reason I don‘t go to Athens is I‘m not really interested in it

are you serious

I dream of making Greece choke in their own home

Especially after reading the arrogance of the Greek XT posters and being accused of the same thing

"you should be happy to have a Hun team in the EL"

ridi-culo-so

Dude the last time a Hungarian team played in the group stages of a European competition was in 2013. Before that it was 2009. So basically qualifying once in 4-5 years should make you happy instead of claiming Vidi deserved to play in the CL while in fact nor them neither AEK did.

Yet all of sudden you didn't mind Hungary NT getting a victory literally out of nowhere, which according to you should have scored one more time. Objectivity at its best lol.

Sadly for you your dream is going to remain unfullfiled, unfortunately we'll get to win the group

Tha Seveste!

nah I meant not interested in Athens from a travelling point of view, contrary to Tallinn, although I would have preferred Vilnius this time

but, what have club teams gotta do with this?
