NBI – Round 17 Preview

This week hungarianfootball.com contributors Paul Treso and Chris Barrett will each give their perspective on Match Day 17. Paul is the fun, colorful type with flair for the dramatic while Chris is the calculating, stat freak who teeters on the boring and predictable. A match made in Sopron if there ever was one. Paul: This is a new feature where one can think of Chris and I playing in a dueling piano bar. Except the games are already...

Roland Varga is on a roll with four goals for Fradi and Újpest have had déjà vu three weeks in a row as their newly-assembled...

Instead Puskás Akadémia and Balmazújváros have climbed into the fray and will begin testing their mettle against the top teams in the country to see if they have what...

A Pleasant Diversion

In our ongoing to attempt to keep you abreast of everything Hungarian in the world of football I ran across an anomaly – a delightful oasis of passion and energetic enthusiasm for the beautiful game on the banks of the Ohio River. It was a perfect confluence of interest and proximity that brought me to Cincinnati, Ohio for a US Open Cup match between MLS’s Chicago Fire and second-tier side FC Cincinnati. The lure of watching...
