NB1 – Round 19 preview

Paul Treso and Chris Barrett  preview the NB1 fixtures for the final match day of the year. As the teams prepare for long winter’s nap (and usual transfer window shakeup), our preview duo will attempt to give the casual (and not-so-casual) NB1 observer some insight into this weekend’s action.

The Past Was Glorious But Cannot Be Repeated

Paul Treso talks about the ups and downs of being a Hungarian football fan in 2017 after the distant success of the past. Have you ever met a real, passionate Hungarian?  They are winners. Look at Ferenc Puskas, the Mighty Magyars of the 1950’s, the Men’s Olympics Water Polo teams winning gold medal after Gold medal.  Maybe it’s the difficult language that is like no other?
