Don't think it's that bad, for they still have many good players playing abroad. May be some back from what previously was. But this event occurs in many countries.

Hi, Kiwi!

i guess u r of some magyar origin, arent you?

to answer your questions:

the 90s were a really miserable decade of hungarian football due to many problems, first of all economocally based problems.

the stadiums are in very bad conditions, nobody except some brutal hooligans wants to go see the matches, there is an average of about 1500 people per match.
even though it is still the nr1 sports in hungary.
but: there are a couple of good young players on the horizon,
such as miklos fehér (fc porto, but probably atletico madrid within the next days), krisztián lisztes (playmaker of werder bremen),
pál dárdai (this years shootingstar of hertha bsc berlin), lászló bodnár (defender of dynamo kijev), a good number of excellent keepers (király, babos, szücs)

Kiwi!

maybe I forgot to mention attila tököli, robert waltner, krisztián kenesei, péter kabát and imre szabics, they are strikers with a good potential. if they improve a bit (by playing in higher quality leagues) they could reach top european level, and our youth teams are also doing quite well. so, there is still hope.
however, the next match of the national team is in early february when they play a 4 nations tournament in cyprus, first vs. czech republic, lets see what happens.

BTW, what about the all blacks? i am a great fan of your rugby team!

-sanyi- thankyou for your thorough reply-in response to your queries-i do not have hungarian heritage-i became interested many years ago reading a hungarian writer in an english football magazine -i liked the basic philosophy----skill-attack-and the history was impressive-the draw with italy rekindled my interest but it was not to be-the crowds-stadium and hooligans make depressing reading-i read somewhere about a new hotshot gera?-heard of him?-re the all blacks-home sentiment is that our forward pack is too soft-but we are getting new players and a new hard arse coach so we are hopeful-in nz the big sporting news is cricket-you probably have never heard of this game but suffice to say we in the past have been bad at it-but our recent results have amazed us all so currently the country is cricket crazy----many thanks for your reply-regards kiwi

oh, thats amazing that someone from nz could just like that get interedsted in hungarian football, but well, it has a long tradition with great successes in the past and the present that sux.
sure , I know zoltán gera, he is a weirdo, but i like him, he is just 20 years old, and defenders shouldnt come too close to him within the 16meters area, otherwise he will fall and the ref gives the penalty, he is very tricky in falling.
but i know what cricket is, i am only not really familiar with the rules, but i love rugby, i was very disappointed in the last world cup cause the all blacks lost against the french.:depress:

regards

florianopolis?
Yes in the south of Brazil. Florianópolis is the homeland of the Brazilian tennis player Gustavo Kuerten, by the way Kuerten cheers for Avaí.
