bmb must really behave herself lately.

Bognar and Kulcar on Ujpest and mr K. on the biggie of the weeked. Plus Vad only on AAR duties. Must be Christmas?

Where does Hungary sit with VAR? Is it planned to come into force any time soon over there?

We don't even have 4th officials on our 3rd division games! Can you imagine a club official doing 4O duties in League 1!!!  We are still in an era of between 2 & 6 TV cameras at a top flight game, forget slow mo & zooming in! Last 2-3 seasons they have been less shaky & we occasionally get a view from somewhere other than near the tech area! The government has put a lot of funding into new grounds in the NB1 and we do have some lovely grounds appearing. Some though, like Balmaz who made a singular season appearance last season play in a ground akin to a conference level ground in the UK and that is being kind! 

It would take a huge investment to put in the level and number of TV gantries that would be required, the internet feeds needed to convey the images to where ever the remote site would be etc. I think we are probably light years away from something so technically advanced, we simply don't have the infrastructure in place. M4, our sports channel are ace! They could have their own what happens next show on their own bloopers. When you compare to ITV/BBC/Sky they are like the uni students homework project. I love them! The facilities may well be put into the new national stadium being built currently for CL/EL/National games but beyond that, I can't see it. We don't even have GLT yet!

We introduced AAR's very early on, I think we may well have been one of the testing them out Nations & I have to say, they work very well in our domestic top league. They are very actively involved in games, more than those you see in Europe (except when they are ours!) Lots of communication, they have their own unique signalling system & it just works at this level of the game.

Kassai is our only male referee who is actually trained in the use of VAR. Clatts has been active in that with giving him regular games in the Saudi League for practice/experience.  5/6 so far this season, he normally gets 1 game there over the winter break for fitness. Katalin Kulcsár has just done the VAR training in Doha, with the female FIFA refs ahead of the Women's WC in June. She will be given some experience games somewhere between now & that starting. No chance of her being used in the NB1, nothing to do with her ability & talent... If you think dinosaurs are extinct take a look at our Federation and you'll find they are alive & well!

Dr Csányi has done a lot for our league but he needs to stop using it just as a platform to get himself onto the coveted UEFA/FIFA committee positions he now enjoys and start to really modernise it. Installing a ref committee not stuck in the 1800's would be a great start but that's a whole other rant!!!
