Title: NBI Appointments Season 19/20
Post by: bmb on Wed 03 Jul 2019 15:11
Fixtures are published, the players have been back in preseason training since 20th June, we'll find out which refs will be reffing or not as we go, it's a state secret otherwise! I'm dreading the news that the lovely Mr Solymosi may have chosen to retire over the close season, not heard either way yet! Tried various sources but all claim they don't know so either they genuinely don't know or they don't want to be the poor sap trying to break it to me gently! You will all hear my heart break into 10 million pieces if he has decided to retire!  :-\

We do have quite a change with dates this season, normally the league kicks off in July but this season it's 3rd August - boo for having to wait an extra week or 2! The winter break starts on December 14, 2019, so 2nd Saturday in December as usual. The Spring season starts early this season - January 25, 1 or 2 weeks earlier than normal and the season ends on May 16th, roughly the same time as last season.

Missy bmb is already way too excited ahead of the season well apart from not knowing if the favourite favourite ref will be starting the season out on the pitch or with his feet up at some lush waterfront condo at Lake Balaton!! Neither of my teams start their season in their own ground! ::) Honvéd continue the ground share with MTK Budapest while their new stadion is being built (https://www.coliseum-online.com/honved-latest-budapest-club-new-stadium/) & Újpest start the season ground sharing with NB2 side Vasas as undersoil heating is currently being installed in the Szusza Ferenc stadion. The, Puskás Aréna, the new National Team Stadion should be ready before the winter break starts as well (planned opening 15th November) - all exciting stuff! Not sure we really need a capacity of 67,889 though as we barely fill the Groupama which is 22,000 but hey we get a National Team stadion back for the first time in a long while!

1st matchday:
Ferencváros v DVSC
Groupama Aréna

Mezőkövesd Zsóry v ZTE
Mezőkövesd Városi Stadion

Mol Vidi (Actually MOL Fehérvár as they will be called this season) v Kaposvári Rákóczi
Mol Aréna Sóstó

Újpest v Puskás Akadémia (Felcsút as they should be called! They are not an academy & had one of the oldest squads last year for a start & Puskás only ever played for Honvéd but the Prime Minister wishes to re-write history for his pathetic, and hated team!)
Illovszky Rudolf Stadion

DVTK v Budapest Honvéd
DVTK Stadion

Kisvárda Master Good v Paks
Kisvárdai Várkerti Stadion

We often adopt the current International kit in Hungary for the NB1 so my headaches caused by yellow may well yet be broken up by headaches caused by luminous pink! Deep joy! Fingers crossed for the Nike orange instead of either of them!

So I might have to take some of those naughty Hungarian words back and accept my sources genuinely don't know! For some reason the fitness tests have been moved until just 2 weeks before the season starts so another 2 weeks to sweat it out! We'll be a bit stuffed if they all fail! Ok so you'd not expect 12-16 semi-pro & professional refs to all fail the same test but... I suspect it may well be due to the high profile death last season during the tests combined with the heatwave there over the past couple of weeks that is the cause of the moved date. That would make sense & it would also be a good move to hold them in the evening when it is slightly cooler.

So the lowdown from this weekend...

Vad (red shirt) - apart from the missed penalty in Liláks favour when they were only 1-0 down he was kind of ok.  Left his cards in the dressing room 1st half so didn't bother booking anyone! I had actually made that as a sarcastic comment after one the Lilák players had received the old clothesline chop across the neck with no sanction but then later in the half on yet another yellow card offence, he patted his top pocket, then back pocket, shrugged and carried on with no card shown! He was weak, inconsistent and his decision making was completely and utterly random.  I have no idea what was or wasn't a foul in the game. He was fit though & kept up with play! He was also marginally better than my team who failed to turn up for the match at all & completely deserved the 3-1 drubbing.

Erdős József (black shirt) - Has lost yet more weight & was looking very trim. Good on him. Positioning was decent and it therefore followed that so was his decision making. He is one that when he gets into the right position gets his calls right & positioning has often been his weak point. Pleased to see him making a good start to the season. He was consistent throughout to both teams.

Bogár Gergő (red shirt) - Very strong performance from this young man.  Fitness excellent, positioning very good, decision making consistent & decent.  Strong on discipline, was not afraid to make the calls or show cards when needed.  He showed the 1st yellow of the season & a correct call it was as well.  Waved away a pen shout right near the end, handball shout, defender had moved his arms out of the way, behind his back actually, but it still caught him from short range as the striker blasted it at him.  100% the right call for me. I foresee a white badge in his future as soon as a spot becomes available.

Solymosi Péter (looking awesome in blue) - Looking very fit & no trouble keeping up with play. His decision making was decent enough & consistent but he was let down by Kóbor Péter in the 1st half. He had a dreadful 1st half & was caught at least 3 feet behind play on at least 4/5 occasions. Not like him, he's normally a very reliable AR.  Bit of controversy around Kapsovár's 2nd goal, Kóbor was about 5 feet behind play at the time. Vidi bench went mental at him & Solymosi Péter looked furious with him!!  As it turned out when watching the 300 replays at half time it did look as if he had got away with it. 2 players were clearly in offside positions as the ball came in, 1 was onside only by about 1-2cm & he was the player who scored so it was a valid goal. Correct call reached simply by luck as the man required to make the judgement was well out of position. He'll be disappointed with himself for that 1st half. Now whether that was the wake up call he needed or he got a bit of a roasting from the lovely Mr S at half time I don't know but he was much better in the 2nd half.  More alert & his positioning was far better.  He's a great young AR normally, he will have learned from it & I'm sure will be relieved that the only player in an onside position as the ball was played was the one to score! Nothing really in the 2nd half, 3 bookings for the new team as their frustration started to kick in a bit and Vidi deserved the win.

Bognár (black shirt) - After Bogár getting in the 1st YC of the season, Bognár got it the 1st and 2nd pens of the season! Both correct calls, one for each team. Seems to be regaining his confidence after losing it when he made THAT call as Kassai's AAR last season & a solid performance from him today. Consistent with both teams & good to see him back on the up.  Same can't be said for Kispest who looked awful in Europe & again today! How anyone can class N'Gog as a striker is beyond me!

Roll on my extra #SolymosiWatch in Europe this week!

So far only Kassai and Karako (out of the 6 FIFA refs) without apointments. Kassai in Saudi Arabia I guess?

#SolymosiWatch is on my team as well!! Mr Puhl must like me this week!!!

Viktor might be on holiday as his wife was at the WWC. She hasn't been on any games yet either, since then. They didn't really get a close season yet again!  He did a lot of football related things over the summer, the Egri Erbstein final, helping Erős Gábor at the Komárom summer training camp in Tata and last week of course he was away at the UEFA summer camp to name just a couple, he always does a few charity games across the summer as well. As far as I am aware he's not refereed in Saudi yet, unless he was there Thurs/Fri. Last game I am aware he did professionally at least was as 4th official on the Portugal v Switzerland in the UEFA nations League on 5th July. I did see him at the Hungary v Wales game back in June. I was in the press box and he was sat just in front to the left of us! He was only watching of course but it was good to see our best ref cheering on the national team!

As for the other one, long may that continue!!!!!

There are 3 games on Sunday so the appointments will be out for them about 4pm today.

Roll on #SolymosiWatch, he'll be the same end as the beautiful György. It's a decent 3rd team on our game, just have to hope that Mr beautiful has kicked our players butts every day this week and they realise that the season has started, they certainly didn't last week & failed to turn up for the game!! Hajrá Nebojša! One day I will manage to get a photo of him & Péter together, my 2 favourites!

Title: Re: NB1 Appointments Season 19/20

So today's ramblings.

Berke Balázs - great game from this young man. Man management decent, foul detection decent, consistent, fitness excellent, great rapport with the players. He is by far the best all round ref of the 3 young FIFA referees (Farkas & Karakó being the other 2 younger ones). Absolutely nothing to comment on!

Farkas has a reasonable game, mostly. Pen shout by Lilák that he correctly waved away. 4 bookings, 3 of them for my team that were all absolutely spot on. Most of his decision making was decent & an acceptable level of consistency. Fitness is superb, great positioning but he made a dreadful key match error that was game changing. Branko slid in to try and kick the ball out towards the touchline, mistimed the whole thing and it shimmied off of his shin towards the goalie instead. It was in no way a deliberate back pass, the player didn't kick it, it bounced off of him as he slid by and I think Mr Farkas is going to be very disappointed with himself when he sees it back, the goalie picked it up because he knew it wasn't a deliberate back pass and Farkas blew up and gave an indirect free kick on the goal area line. Extremely poor decision. A goal was subsequently scored and it went from 1-0 to Lilák to 1-1. Just dreadful & directly altered the course of the game. Thankfully lilák got a winner and what a peach of a goal it was as well! 7.9 for him due to the game changing error. He also booked our coach, mid way through the second half.  I can't comment on if it was right ot not because Nebojša is my friend, someone I care a lot about & it's not a decision I can look at without a huge amount of bias! I don't think therefore it is right for me to comment on it. Nebojša was quite animated at times though and spoke to the 4th official several times so maybe he said something out of order. I'm speaking to him now & he's not commented on it even though I have moaned about it 3 times so far!! Whatever he said or did in training though this week worked, our team were dreadful last week and that is being kind - completely different team turned up today & they were absolutely superb! DVTK is a great place to go, the stadium is gorgeous and the fans there are brilliant. Very noisy, very passionate but also very friendly. It was a brilliant game to watch. Just tainted a bit by that one dreadful decision.

I will add as a general thing - We need to get Berke promoted to category 2 from next Jan, imo he is the one who should be taking over the elite spot when Kassai retires. Such a natural referee. Very fair and honest ref on the pitch, his knowledge & application of the LOTG is just superb.  He does still make some silly mistakes but he is still developing. Time is running out, next year is Kassais official last year although I suspect he will get a +1 year if not 2 x +1 years. Farkas is the only one in a position currently to take over but he is far too inconsistent still & there is no Category 1 spot open in any event.  I'd bin Vad, we need to free up a Category 1 spot & Bognár is head & shoulders ahead of him. He had a superb game in Denmark on Thursday with the important Russian observer, Krill someone. I'm pretty certain a high mark & great report will have gone back to UEFA ivory towers. I'd also bin Karakó, there are too many question marks over his integrity after the incident with Király last season, like Andó-Szabó before him he is not going anywhere in UEFA terms. He is far too error prone & inconsistent as well. There is/was potential there but he's simply not developing & trust in him is understandably gone due to that dreadful uproar with Király. I'd promote Berke to category 2, and have him working with Viktor to learn from him, appoint Viktor as his mentor. Stick him on Viktor's team as an AAR but also have Viktor as his AAR to help guide him. His EL debut, he was amazing, was so proud of him.  Flawless performance. I'd then give Bogár Gergő & Pillók Ádám their white badges in category 3 to replace Vad & Karakó. Neither are probably ready yet to be fair, Bogár is ahead in developmental terms, he is a superb young referee.  They would benefit so much from the additional UEFA training as well, both are quick learners & I can see them developing quickly with that added guidance.  I'd actually appoint Solymosi Péter as an added coach to them domestically, he's near the end of his career so prolong it & have him as AAR to them in games, let him work with them off the pitch as well. The wise old head from a steady if not spectacular ref. I know he is a qualified observer because he has done a game in the NB3 although the rules have changed and you can't observe now while still active. Good opportunity to develop him as a coach for when he does hang up his whistle, he'd be a huge asset to the MLSz.

So if someone from the MLSz JB is reading here - how about it? Let's get developing the youth now, we have some good potential there & half a dozen superb young AR's who already have their FIFA badges. We have enough to get 3 brilliant match official teams going, 1 elite team & 2 category 1 teams. I'm quite excited about what the future could hold for our refs with these youngsters coming through but we need to start developing them at the next level now. Bognár & Vad both retire the year after Viktor, or the same time as him if he has a +1 year.

Edy what is our allocation in terms of Cat 2 & 3? I know we have 6 in total, 1 elite, 2 Cat 1 but not sure on the Cat 2 & 3 make up for the other 3?

Elite: Victor Kassai
1st Group: Tamas Bognár, Istvan Vad.
2nd Group: Ádám Farkas
3rd Group: Balázs Berke, Ferenc Karakó

Berke is new FIFA with only 6 months on the list. He is very difficult to be promoted on 2nd group. It is more likely next summer as long as he continues a good development (that means more appointments on the league).

I agree about Vad. He should be demoted. Or removed from the list to open space. He never recovered from the mistake on Euro 2012. Bognar is definitely no2 now.

Can we have 2 at Cat 2 & 1 at Cat 3, was more what I meant by in terms of what is our allocation. I know we currently have 2 Cat 3 & 1 Cat 2.

Berke should have been promoted instead of Karakó, who is not fit to lace his boots for him. Never did understand why an unknown NB2 ref was given his white badge ahead of a really exciting youngster.  He'd been on the FIFA list 2 months before he was promoted to the NB1 & he is dreadful 9/10! Watching him now & he has been completely ineffective & weak again.  He has allowed my team to foul Remili about 30 times so far & not even a word, clear dive from Batik - nothing. It's like watching an amateur league referee.

You're right on Vad. There again I have always considered Bognár ahead of him, even pre his huge error in 2012!

You can have all of them at 2nd Group. There is no limit. I remember a case where Romania had 4 2nd Group and none on 3rd Group (thanks to Kyros).

If you deem Karakó as non-fit, then IMO he should be removed. But the real issue is that Hungary should search for referees born 1987-1988 to put on the list. They will have more chances to progress on the categories if they are 32-33-34.

As for this afternoon's game:

Andó-Szabó (back shirt): Steady performance from him. No big decisions to make. He plodded along nicely along with the game. No controversies. Won't be the hardest game he gets all season, did what he needed to, when he needed to do it.

Viktor Kassai (Red shirt): Decent start to the season from our top ref in a game known to frequently be full of issues! Strong & decisive as he needed to be. Decision making superb, fitness top notch, positioning excellent, man-management spot on. Did dish out a couple of great looks! Correct call on a pen for Mol Fehérvár.

Karakó (black shirt): Woefully inadequate! Dreadfully weak performance, decision making - inconsistent, man-management - non existent. 1st half alone Kispest fouled Remili at least 20 times, obviously targeted/tactical fouling and he didn't even have a word. Batik should have been booked for an utterly shameful dive, again not even a word. Batik was finally shown a yellow card & it was a correct call, 3 mins later he was sent off. Now if it was a 2nd yellow then it was correct, if it was a straight red then it wasn't.  Reason for the confusion is at no point was he seen to show a 2nd yellow, just the red. On one replay he can be seen putting his yellow card in his pocket as he shows the red so it may well be that he was out of camera shot when he showed it, I am trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. Card technique is woeful at best though & we have been here with him before - the incident with Király immediately springs to mind! No complaints with the yellows for Konyves, Ikenne-King & Uzoma, all good calls. End of the game he virtually ran off of the pitch without his team. He's the 1st ref I have seen in several years of watching the NBI now who did not line up with his team after the game & shake players hands.  Maybe he needed to pee but it looked highly unprofessional! His team were caught unaware and were left trotting after him from various positions to try and catch him up.

This is where I just really don't get Mr Puhl.  He was a great referee in his day & always demanded a high standard of himself & of his team, he was also very professional in his conduct & behaviour. Yet there are 2 referees in particular, Vad & Karakó, who let him down week in week out, it's not a 1 off poor game, we all have those & you can accept them but it's every single week, every single game. A good or even an acceptable performance is the exception rather than the rule but he seems to do nothing about it. Vad should have been binned years ago, Karakó should have never been promoted in the first place. I wish he would apply the same standards to the referees under his charge as he did to himself.

On a very big plus note - 10 games so far this season. Both of Fradi's games have been postponed to give them the chance to prepare better for the UCL, the MLSz are ace for that sort of thing. Shirt count: Black - 5; Blue - 2; Red - 3. Sárga - 0!! Whoever is behind that - you are awesome!

Just to correct myself up there ^^^^

1. The Russian observer was Nikolay Levnikov, father of Kirill!
2. It was Litauszki Róbert, that shimmied the ball, not Branko, in the Lilák game. Still was the wrong decision by Farkas though!
3. Having just rewatched the game I am very disappointed to have to say Mr Farkas was correct to give Nebojša a yellow card. He had wandered about 1 foot onto the pitch, when issuing instructions, 4th official spoke to him as he wandered back and Nebojša shouted at him. Don't know what he shouted as it was in Serbian but he should not have been shouting at him in any event! Said coach has been given a bmb reprimand! His reply was "well you only told me I had to be nice to Péter & György, you didn't mention the other 4, and I was nice to the 2 you said I had to be...". bmb reprimand upgraded to a full bmb bollocking! Sort of answer I expect from my smart-mouthed teenager, not super coach!

In fairness to coach, when one of our players went to challenge György Ring over a throw in decision, he stopped him from doing so & literally shoved him back onto the pitch & told him to get on with the game! The video is quite funny.

Surely you meant to add: ban yellow (and just in case pink) referee shirts to that list Edy! That would make a very very happy bmb! I like the Nike kit so if we are due to switch then that one please! Ban macron! Even better I think we should ditch the commercialised faff kits and have our own unique Hungarian one made by 2Rule - a Hungarian sportswear company & let me design it!!! Nincs Sárga!

Helps take my mind off the fact that Sannino is about as good a manager as Leekens, which is not a good thing! Kispest look dreadful so far this season. Lilák have no striker & a goalie who is well about as good at goalkeeping as Sannino is at managing! bmb is desperate for some NBI cheer!!

Congratulations and good luck to 27 year old Csonka Bence, from Békés who makes his NBI debut as a referee this week. He has previously been AAR in 19 games and regularly referees in the NBII. He passed the Referee Exam in 2007. His debut was during the spring 2017 in the NB. II.  March 5, 2017 - Szolnok v Sopron match. Since then, he has refereed a total of 32 matches, showing 108 yellow cards and 7 red cards.  Quite a low card average of 3.3 YC/game.

Trial match.  Very pleased to see it. 

Mr Puhl looks like he is preparing for our future. 31 year old Pillók given his debut on the last day of last season, in which he performed superbly, the very impressive Bogár being promoted at age 27 & getting regular games and now a 27 year old making his debut. Last season these games would have gone to people like Ádám Németh or Ádám Radványi, both in their mid to late 30's, both dreadful referees and most certainly not our future. I'm genuinely liking this season's Mr Puhl, he's more like the Mr Puhl we had when he first started as head of refereeing. He went through a bit of a cynical, not caring phase (looking from the outside in) for a few seasons & I wonder if he was a bit burnt out but this season he seems to be more dynamic again, like he has a new renewed determination.

No #Solymosi watch this weekend though - unless he is on the Sunday game!!! Hope the nincs sárga continues as well!!!

Post by: bmb on Sat 24 Aug 2019 22:54
So to today's games:

Ádám Farkas (blue shirt) - Steady performance from Mr Farkas.  Only 2 teams really turned up for the game and neither of them were Kispest... Loki were by far the better team & fully deserved their 3-2 win. Penalty shout from Kispest near the end after Lanzafame went down like a sack of spuds in the box, Farkas was quite correct to wave it away, never a penalty. Kukoc's long extracted protests were an utter embarrassment and he fully deserved to go into the book for dissent. Perhaps next week he could try putting as much energy into playing as he did into berating the referee for a correct decision, that would be nice... Actually scratch that if he could even put in half the amount of energy into playing next week, he'd do a lot better than he did today! Only realised he was actually on the pitch because he was running his mouth off!! One other booking for Kispest in Lanzafame, correct call, 2 bookings for Loki - Trujic & Kusnyir, both correct. None I felt he missed. Both of Lanzafame's goals for Kispest were beauts - the 1st one was a lovely 1-2 between him and Moutari and the 2nd was a peach of a free kick. Goal of the game though was the winner from Kevin Varga for Loki. Mr Farkas & his team can be happy with their contribution to the match. Kispest on the other hand can't. 4 games 4 defeats.

József Erdős (red shirt): Now it's bad enough when 1 of your teams is utterly crap but when it's both of them *sigh*. I think my Lilák thought the game was at home, as they never made an appearance at Kisvarda. As per the game above only 2 teams turned up & again it was the team that I support who failed to turn up! Absolutely zero complaints with Mr Erdős today. He had a good start to the season with his middle on MD1 & that continued. His positioning again was excellent & his decision making fair & consistent to both teams. Hope he can carry on this way, I have been critical of him in the past but felt last season he was our most improved referee and I'm really liking what I have seen from him this season so far. Only 1 booking for Burekovic of Lilák, which was spot on.  Grozav from Kisvárda is on absolute fire right now, his 1st goal was down to crap defending and Lilák not having a goalkeeper on the pitch (Pajovic was in in goal and quite why our coach persits with him is beyond me!), his 2nd goal however was an absolute stunner. 5 goals in 4 games now from Grozav - wonder if it's too late to change my prediction for the top scorer of the season in the prediction league!

Bence Csonka (black shirt): I am so delighted for this young man. What a fantastic NBI debut for him   It was not an easy game, Vidi are known for their constant mouthing off, surrounding the ref at every opportunity & basic bad behaviour but he handled them so well. The best one for me was when a Vidi player, can't remember who, had gone down like a sack of spuds and was feigning injury and he didn't fall for it only to have Nego mouthing off constantly right in his face, he simply very calmly pulled out his yellow and booked Nego - I actually applauded him & Nego looked very shocked that his bullying and intimidation attempt had failed!! His team mate who had seconds before been dying jumped up the second the yellow card came out to berate the ref - funny that!! Seemed he wasn't dead after all... 3 other yellows for Vidi - Futacs, Fiola & Hodzic all fully deserved & correct calls. 2 yellows for Paks - Fejes & Balogh & no complaints with those either.  Couple of 50/50's I felt should have gone the other way but very minor stuff. He was strong, decisive, refused to allow Vidi to bully or intimidate him & overall he was excellent. He looks about 12, tall, very slim and his fitness is superb.  Positioning was mostly decent and his decision making consistent to both teams. He did also book Marko Nikolic, Vidi's head coach which did make me laugh! He's a lovely guy but sometimes you can see where the players get their constant whining from and it was good to see him get pulled up on it for once.  Vidi won 2-0 with 2 superb goals, Futacs with the 1st on 24 mins (hope you were watching Mr Rossi, it's about time he was brought into the national team) and Petryak with the 2nd on 61 mins. Young Mr Csonka can be very proud of himself tonight.

Sándor Andó-Szabó (black shirt): Steady performance from Mr Andó-Szabó. He just got on with the job and did it well. I didn't watch this one too closely to be honest but I saw nothing that that anyone could complain about. He's a steady but not spectacular ref and a safe pair of hands more often than not. 5 yellows - Ternovan, Ndzoumou & Hasani for the home team and Vadnai & Zivzivadze for the away team which all looked spot on. Mezokovesd won 3-0, Nagy, Karnitskiy and Cseri with the goals. From being last season's whipping boys they currently sit 2nd in the league with 4 wins out of 4!  Mr Andó-Szabó can be happy with his & his teams performance.

Ferenc Karakó (red shirt): Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear... At best I'd give him 7.6 for the game & that is me being generous. Just dreadful.  The sooner Mr Puhl kicks him out to the Debréte* Sunday league 27th division the better.  Another game, another complete embarrassment. I always thought Mr Puhl had more self respect myself but the fact he continues to persist with Karakó is just beyond me. He must see something I can't & I have tried looking with a magnifying glass & still can't find it...




*Debréte for those who don't know is one of, if not the smallest villages in Hungary with a population of 10! Well 10 plus 1 donkey called Dezső. It's 250km from Budapest, located in in Borsod county, northeast Hungary, in the mountains of the Hungarian-Slovak borderlands. There is 1 bus per day from Miskolc, the postie, food merchant & gas bottle guy visit every other day & they have about 1 outsider visit every 2 weeks or so!

Ferenc Karakó (red shirt): Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear... At best I'd give him 7.6 for the game & that is me being generous. Just dreadful. 

Right I have had a re-read of the LOTG, just to check if my opinion was correct or if I was just being harsh because I do not rate Mr Karakó. I have also asked the opinion of 1 senior UEFA referee observer (and observer instructor) & 2 current FIFA refs again just to make sure I am not being biased, as I know I can be! My question to them was "is this a correct pen or not?" None of the 3 of them I asked, knew who the ref was or my dislike of him. They knew neither team in the game are supported by me.  All 3 said NO penalty.

So to explain - striker blasted the ball against a defenders arm from about 1 foot (if that) away. Penalty for handball was given.  I felt at the time it was not correct in Law. Defender was on his way to the ground, due to the twist of his body part of the arm could possibly be considered above his shoulder, but it was not making his body bigger, it was part of the twisting motion of him going from his back to his side in the air so his hands/side were the first to hit the floor not his back! Striker who could have kicked the ball passed or over him, doesn't & deliberately kicks it at the defenders arm. He's already on his way down & twisting in the air, no way he can avoid the ball, deliberately kicked at him to win a penalty.  Game was 0-0 at that point. Resultant penalty makes it 1-0, team with renewed confidence go on to win 4-0. So according to 3 people far more qualified than I it was a key match error.

I will add he had already given a red card at this point & I think the red was a correct decision. Foot catching a player at chest height & have no gripes with that decision at all. The penalty however I did. The 10 man team were on top in the game up until that point. They were wronged with the penalty decision against them & it completely changed the course of the game.

There were other decisions but I don't have 4 hours spare to list them all. Again he was weak, decision making random & inconsistent, he did get the red card right but it was the exception rather than the rule regarding his decision making. Positioning awful. Zero man management skills.

In contrast to the above, what a breath of fresh air this young man is.  Important things 1st - he wore black! Knowledge and application of the Laws of the Game - superb, positioning excellent, strong, decisive. Played an absolutely sublime advantage in the lead up to Fradi's goal. Decision making consistent for both teams. Absolute joy to watch. Incident in the 2nd half where Fradis goalie parried the ball out straight onto the arm of Henty, who pushed it onto his other arm & used that one to push to his feet to take a shot, I think it possibly even hit a Fradi players arm on it's way into the net! Whistle went straight away & goal correctly disallowed. For some reason one of the Fradi players kicked off, maybe he thought the decision was a penalty but he managed to talk himself straight into the book. Not sure if it was Berke or Pintér behind the goal who called the handball but Berke certainly whistled pretty quickly so I'd guestimate it was him. He also gave a penalty against Fradi, brief moan from the goalie who tried to claim he had played the ball & not really hauled the Felcsút player down. Fradi lost 4-1. Their fans who being big conspiracy theorists (they are the big team in Hungary) were by and large saying what a well officiated game it was. That's quite something as even when they win they claim referee corruption!

Oh yeah & #SolymosiWatch was included!  ;D

Oh boy was I ever wrong!

He did have potential but instead of developing and progressing he has regressed at a rate of knots sadly! He's turned out to be like that exciting youth player who is banging 12 goals in week after week in the youth team but when he makes his way into the 1st team ends up a complete donkey!

I have #SolymosiWatch just not at the right ground!!! Not sure Nebojša will let me get away with watching his game during the emotion derby! I can watch it on M4 afterwards though  ;D  Curse you Mr Puhl, I was hoping for it to be at the derby - if you could just swap both those teams over in their entirety before kickoff that would be rather ace!! The big match of the weekend instead goes to Mr Iványi, happy enough with that, wise old head and safe pair of hands.  Nice to see Ádám Pillóck get a 2nd game.

Thankfully he made up for this by putting in an absolute masterclass of a performance!  Absolutely outstanding from start to finish.  When he performs like he did yesterday he is one of the best referees going, certainly at our level anyway.  Decision making was just superb, don't recall a single error. Fair and consistent with both teams, wonderful use of the advantage a couple of times. His man management is brilliant. If I were Mr Puhl, I would show the video of that game to all of our referees and tell them that this is how to referee a tense Budapest derby match and keep it about the football.  Having said that there are a couple of moments that I think only he could have got away with as referee because he has such a great rapport with the players & has their respect.  Uzoma started to throw a tantrum over a fully correct decision against him & Iványi, threw his arms up in the air, then stamped his foot and was saying the Hungarian equivalent of "wah wah wah" at him, Uzoma looked completely shocked and then burst out laughing realising how stupid he himself had looked.  Iványi done the whole throwing his arms up in the air and exaggerated shrug maybe 4 or 5 times during the game, in response to players doing it his way over a decision - it's not a regular tactic he uses but yesterday it worked and every single time it ended in smiles. Later in the game Kukoc was threatening to tip a bottle of water over Iványi, in a playful way and Iványi & the players were in absolute hysterics over it.  Never seen so much laughter on the pitch in a derby game. Only 1 real moment of sheer temper and that was Kukoc, he was in an offside position, great ball forward from Moutari and it seemed an age before Kukoc finally ran onto it & as soon as he did the AR raised his flag. He was obviously moaning about the "late" flag but it was completely correct as Berettyán Péter couldn't raise the flag until he went from being just in an offside position to being actively offside.  It ended Lilák 2, Kispest 3. Great game for the neutral!

I had #SolymosiWatch on a reasonable sized screen beside me & Mr Berke, in blue looked to have a decent game again.  The other 3 games were on screens no more than a couple of inches in size so I can't claim to have watched them properly! I will watch them later on M4. Mr Pillók wore blue, Mr Pintér and Mr Bogár both wore red! There was at least 1 penalty - ZTE match, a goal disallowed in the Felcsút game & plenty of action and incidents to review! None of the press guys though have mentioned anything of real note to me which they normally do, if they think a wrong/bad call has been made.

As we head into the first International break, I thought I'd bore myself with some stats!

We've had 5 match days so far with 28 games played & 2 games postponed to enable the teams to concentrate on/prepare for European games. I do love how the MLSZ always do that. They are so supportive of the teams in Europe and do everything they can to help them prepare.

My most important stat of course is that in the 28 games Black, Red and Blue shirts have been in worn in 9 games each, only 1 blot to an almost perfect stat with 1 yellow shirt appearing - yes I'm glaring at you Mr Iványi!  >:(

The stats someone else may be interested in!

I'm liking the appointments so far, Mr Puhl seems to so far be pushing our young referees this season, which is brilliant. Bence Csonka has made his NBI debut, Ádám Pillók has had his 2nd NBI game following his debut on the last day of last season. Balázs Berke & Gergő Bogár have both refereed 3 matches this season, along with Tamás Bognár. 8 referees have had 2 games each, and Bence Csonka, Ádám Pillók and István Vad have had 1 game a piece. The 2 busiest referees are Csaba Pintér who has 2 games as referee and 5 as AAR and bmb's favourite, Péter Solymosi with 2 games as referee and 4 as AAR.

There has been a total of 130 yellow cards with 59 going to home team players and 71 going to away team players. It's not too much of a surprise the difference between the home & away numbers with Kapsovári, Kisvárda & Puskás Akadémia, the 3 most booked teams having had 3 games away and 2 at home so far. Between them they account for just over 1/3 of the total bookings! There has only been 1 YYR card, going to an away team player and 3 straight reds, 2 going to home team players and 1 to an away team player.  We have seen 9 penalties with 4 going to the home team and 5 to the away team. The stats are pretty even between home & away teams. In terms of results, there has been been 14 home wins, 2 draws and 12 away wins.

Onto individual stats:

Balázs Berke - 3 games (2 blue shirt, 1 black shirt) plus 2 games as AAR - 13YC:6(H);7(A); 1 pen - home team. Results - 2 home wins, 1 away win.
Tamás Bognár - 3 games (1 red shirt, 1 black shirt, 1 blue shirt) - 15YC:9(H);6(A); 1RC (H) and 3 pens 2(H), 1(A). Results 3 home wins. He has given 50% of the penalties so far!
Gergő Bogár - 3 games (2 red shirts; 1 blue shirt) - 13YC:6(H);7(A); 1RC (A) and 1 pen (H).  Results - 2 home wins, 1 draw

Péter Solymosi - 2 games (1 red shirt, 1 blue shirt) plus 4 games as AAR - 7YC:2(H);5(A) - Results 1 home win 1 draw
Viktor Kassai - 2 games (1 red shirt, 1 blue shirt) - 11YC:8(H);3(A);2 penalties both away team. Results 1 home win, 1 away win. He has also done 1 game in SA as referee and 2 as VAR.
Ádám Farkas - 2 games (1 black shirt, 1 blue shirt) plus 2 games as AAR - 8YC:3(H);5(A). Results 2 away wins
Ferenc Karakó - 2 games (1 black shirt, 1 red shirt) plus 3 games as AAR - 8YC:4(H);4(A); 1YYR(A); 1RC (H) and 1 pen (A). Results 1 home win, 1 away win.
Sándor Andó-Szabó - 2 games (2 black shirts) plus 2 games as AAR - 12YC:5(H);7(A). Results - 1 home win, 1 away win.
József Erdős - 2 games (1 black shirt, 1 red shirt) plus 2 games as AAR - 5YC:2(H);3(A) Results - 2 home wins
Csaba Pintér - 2 games (1 blue shirt, 1 red shirt) plus 5 games as AAR - 10YC:4(H);6(A); 1 pen (A). Results - 2 away wins
Zoltán Iványi - 2 games (1 black shirt; 1 vile shirt) plus 2 games as AAR - 11YC:4(H);7(A). Results 1 home win, 1 away win

István Vad - 1 game (red shirt) plus 3 as AAR - 4YC:1(H);3(A) Results - 1 away win
Ádám Pillók - 1 game (blue shirt) plus 2 as AAR - 7YC:3(H);4(A) Results 1 Away win
Bence Csonka - 1 game (black shirt) plus 1 game as AAR - 6YC:2(H);4(A) Results - 1 away win

I look forward to seeing more of Ádám Pillók and Bence Csonka, the continued development of Balázs Berke and #SolymosiWatch every match day!

Title: Re: NBI Appointments Season 19/20
Post by: bmb on Sat 14 Sep 2019 19:29
Absolutely bonkers afternoon so far In the NBI with the last match of the day ongoing at the moment.

Újpest v DVSC - Erdős József - Black shirt - Just mental!!!
Some of the ultras turned on the manager this week at a fans forum, missy bmb has yet to calm down about this, it must be said! Nebojša finally dropped the liability that is Pajovic and we started the game with a goalkeeper for the first time this season ;) It went like this: 23 - Lilák 0-1 Loki; 74 - Lilák 1-1 Loki; 85 - Lilák 1-2 Loki; 87 - Lilák 2-2 Loki; 90+4 - Lilák 3-2 Loki! I thought Mr Erdős continued his good start to the season.  I did question Liláks 2nd goal as it looked as if there had been a handball by Feczesin but it was Mr Erdős who was correct not bmb as replays from a different angle to the live view showed there was no contact with the ball and his arm.  Correct penalty given at 90+4 and Feczesin scored his 2nd of the game, 3rd in the last 2 games. He was a late signing in the transfer window & today was his 2nd game - welcome home Feczesin!! Well done Nebojša & the boys. Proud of you! 6 YC in the game - 4 for my team & 2 for Loki. All spot on. Mr Erdős is looking the fittest I have ever seen him, his positioning was spot on again today & he can be pleased with his decent contribution to the game.

Oh and FU VF - you are an embarrassment to our club, keep staying away, we're better off without you!

Budapest Honvéd v Mol Fehérvár - Kassai Viktor - blue shirt
Probably had the easiest & quietest game of all the refs today! Press guy messaged me at half time & said your ref is on fire today - perfection from him! Another one messaged with Viktor has called everything right so far! I'd have to agree with them both. One of those games that flowed beautifully and he was there in the background allowing it to flow but stepping in when needed. 6 YC - 2 for my Kispest & 4 for Vidi - no complaints with any of them. Don't feel he missed anything. Vivi won 1-0 with a beautifully worked goal from Hodzic, Tujel didn't stand a chance of saving it. Mr Kassai & his team can go home happy with their decent contribution to the game. Please dear new owners sack Sannino though, I think I have more tactical nous than him & I don't know my 4-4-2 from my 4-5-1!!!

Kisvárda Master Good v Mezőkövesd Zsóry - Bognár Tamás - blue shirt.
Haven't watched this one properly yet but it will be listed as the highest level of difficulty.  Kisvárda lost their heads over a decision, from what I can gather by 1 press guy.  It led to announcements being made over the tannoy in the stadium "Attention fans please show good sportsmanship". I've not seen the decision, I'll watch the game when M4 upload it later but there were very ugly scenes on the pitch, a coach from 1 team seemed to go for a player from the other and it all kicked off from there with a few handbags being thrown on both sides. After it had calmed back down Bognár and his team were standing on the pitch with 2/3 security guards. I thought they had maybe postponed the game temporarily but eventually they were joined by some players & coaches who re-appeared out of the tunnel, still bitching at each other! He showed Grozav from Kisvárda and Cseri from Mezokovesd a yellow card each and then flashed 2 red cards. I thought initially to coaches who were stood there but it was to Cukalasz from Kisvarda and Karnitskiy from Mezokovesd. Karnitskiy had already been given a YC on 37mins but the card at half time was a straight red not a 2nd yellow. Half time then went ahead. Both teams started the 2nd half with 10 men. Mezokovesd won 2-1.  There were 4 further YC in the 2nd half 3 for the home team & 1 for the away team. I have a feeling the disciplinary committee will sit twice this week - this game alone is going to keep them busy so will probably have a separate sitting. Both clubs can expect hefty fines for the disgraceful scenes in the tech area & Kisvárda another one for their fans behaviour.  I suspect Mr Bognár heaved a huge sigh of relief when he blew the final whistle! I look forward to viewing this one properly!

Puskás Akadémia v Kaposvári Rákóczi - Farkas Ádám - blue shirt
Didn't watch anything of this one at all - Felcsút won 2-0, which is never good!

DVTK v ZTE - Iványi Zoltán - black shirt
DVTK sacked the handsome but not very good Fernando as manager last week. The popular young manager Feczkó was appointed as his replacement, not handsome (in bmb's opinion) but a good manager. He was sacked quite early last season by MTK & everyone was pleased when they subsequently went down, seeing it as the perfect karma! He was immediately tough, kicking out some players & telling the rest of them it was time to start working & earning their wages! They won 1-0.  I took very little notice of it but ZTE were down to 9 men by the end. Both YYR as opposed to straight reds. 2 yellows for the home team, 3 for the away team. Another completely bonkers game I look forward to viewing in full when M4 update their website!
 
Paks v Ferencváros - Pintér Csaba - bad bad bad Mr Pinter... >:(
Just watching this one now. Fradi have gone in 3-0 up, deservedly so. No bookings - none needed, it's 1 way traffic out there! Despite looking like a lemon, Mr Pintér's decision making has been good & consistent, correct penalty given for Fradi just before half time & he's having a good game out there so far. Good game continued in Fradi's easy 4-0 win. Another straight red to add to the tally!

We have doubled our straight red card count for the season today!

No #SolymosiWatch this weekend either - it's round 6 of the Magyar Kupa (like the 3rd round of the FA cup). All the NBI teams make their 1st appearance in the cup but it's all NBIII and NBII refs on the games!

3 weekends on the trot of no #SolymosiWatch!!

bmb is not a happy lady!

Thank goodness for the Europa League #SolymosiWatch even if he is 'only' 4th official!!

He'd best be on a game next weekend, preferably a middle and the Újpest game would be a bonus and might just make up for 3 weekends of deprivation!

Berke is wearing yellow for the 1st time in his professional career! bmb is not a happy lady & he missed a dreadful hauldown on Feczesin right outside the box when Lilák were 1-0 down.  Could have been a game changer that! Best he change kit & up his blimmin game for the 2nd half...

Post by: bmb on Sun 06 Oct 2019 15:48
Nem jó, Puhl Úr, egyáltalán nem jó!  Missy bmb is a very unhappy lady this weekend!

Lilák lost - more down to 2 great strikes by the opposition and deciding to not bother actually putting in any effort until the +3 on 90 mins than anything else but a very miffed Missy bmb is having trouble moving passed the fact that Mr Berke was wearing that vile yellow rag to referee in

No problems at all with Mr Pintér in black, who had a very difficult game! 2 correctly given penalties & 2 YYR cards, made it a busy day for him. Talk of a missed handball but I disagree - close range ball to hand & no goal resulting from it so I have no problem with it not being given. The red shirt wearing Mr Bogár had a busy game, 9 yellows in that one - all looked correct but I wasn't taking too much notice of that one to be honest.  Mr Erdős wore blue so at least #SolymosiWatch wasn't tainted! I do think there was a key match error in this one - my opinion is the Felcsút equaliser was not lawful - 2 players in offside positions standing virtually on the goal line, one of whom helped the ball over the line. The goal was credited to him. No flag from the AR, Mr Solymosi looked straight to him as did Mr Erdős and they were both seen speaking over the comms. Mr Vígh-Tarsonyi stood firm though so the goal was given.

Mr Iványi wore yellow, so say no more...  >:(  The lovely Mr Solymosi was originally AR1 on this game but at some point between the appointments being released and the games occurring he swapped with Mr Pillók. I have no idea why but Missy bmb shall cheer herself up by thinking he swapped to avoid wearing yellow!

I will add Mr Erdős was fantastic with how he dealt with the mobbing of the AR.  He was straight over, booked one player & told the rest of them to go away and stood directly in front of the AR to prevent any players approaching him. He protected his team member as a referee should - hope Mr Vad was watching how it should be done as he normally turns tail and runs away and leaves his AR's completely unprotected! Well done Mr Erdős!

Title: Re: NBI Appointments Season 19/20
Post by: bmb on Sat 19 Oct 2019 23:03
What a cracking afternoon of football in the NBI today. When watching on TV back in the UK I have 2 games on large screen & 3 games on small screen & don't really watch those 3 unless there is a goal or incident & I watch the replay of it. (Unless there is #SolymosiWatch, Lilák & Kispest on 3 different games at the same time, when I have 3 large & 2 small screens!)

Mezőkövesd Zsóry v Mol Fehérvár - Referee: Farkas Ádám (Red shirt) Result 0-0
Didn't really watch this one & by all accounts it was a fairly dull 0-0 draw.  Not a murmur my way about Farkas from the press guys which says no disputed/contentious decisions. Easy afternoon for him by all accounts.


Puskás Akadémia v Paks - Referee: Karakó Ferenc (Red shirt) Result 4-2
Another small screen game and I have watched the highlights on the gól show. 6 goals, 2 yellows & 1 red. All goals looked valid, the 2 yellows were spot on & so was the red. No complaints voiced and as Mr Karakó is not popular in Hungary that suggests he had a decent enough game.

Kaposvári Rákóczi v Kisvárda Master Good - Referee: Solymosi Péter (Black shirt) Result 0-2
My main focus game - there's a surprise! 3 yellow cards all of which were spot on.  Penalty shout for Kaposvár that I thought on 1st view he had called wrong but replays showed he was correct. Highlight of the game in refereeing terms was the absolutely sublime advantage that he played in the lead up to Kisvárda's 2nd goal.  Kaposvár player took out a Kisvárda player about 5 feet into the Kaposvár half, resultant lose ball was picked up by a Kisvárda player who steamed up the pitch with it, he first used the awful 1 handed advantage signal, followed swiftly by the 2 handed one, within 10-15 seconds the ball was in the back of the net. Superb example of an excellent advantage and yes he went back and booked the Kaposvár player for the original foul. Now not sure who he cautioned on 90+ I'm assuming someone off of one of the benches but in camera view when he held the card up there was only him & György Ring & I'm pretty sure he was not cautioning György! He and his team can feel pleased with their contribution to the game.


ZTE v Budapest Honvéd - Referee: Iványi Zoltán (wore yellow again so time he was dropped until he learns nincs sárga!! 3/6 yellow shirts have been him!  >:( ) Result 0-1
My 2nd big screen game & what a cracker it was.  I'm not convinced by the penalty he gave to my Kispest. Lanzafame was pulling the ZTE players shirt virtually off his back & that player was holding Lanza as well, very much 6 of one, half a dozen of the other.  It did look like the ZTE player may have just clipped Lanza's heal but it's not clear even on replay. Lanza made a very shameful dogs dinner of it though - oscar worthy in fact. Kamber hit it soft and low to the keeper's left who saved & personally I feel justice was done.  Well done Demjén!  Lanza did score an absolute belter of a goal to win the game - we saw the good and bad side of him again today. As a Kispest fan I would have felt very uncomfortable with winning the game on the back of the penalty decision.


DVSC v DVTK - Referee: Bogár Gergő (blue shirt) Result 2-1
My final small screen game but I was speaking to a Loki fan throughout. Looked like a few difficult moments for Mr Bogár. Challenge by a Loki player, a foul imo, Varga went nuts at the ref, he showed a yellow for dissent and afterwards turned away from Varga who was literally screaming blue murder, Varga carried on and walked back in front of the ref, he was very close to him & quite intimidating. Don't know what he was shouting but whatever it was saw him given a straight red. Even without knowing what was said I will call it as a good decision based purely on the players conduct, he was completely out of control at the time and if you are going to literally scream in a referee's face after he has cautioned you then you deserve the early bath. My Loki supporting mate was cussing out his own player not the ref over the call. Couple of times he ended up surrounded by Loki players whinging but he remained calm and level headed. Later he gave a penalty to Loki & it looked a good call. Despite having 10 men Loki managed a 2-1 win and on balance I think it was deserved. No grumbles from Charlie Bácsi over the referee and what I did see he got right and no complaints would have been justified. I do think this young man has a bright future ahead of him, he's only 26/7 but seems wise beyond his years and self assured with no hint of arrogance.  He is inexperienced and players do try to take advantage of that at times. I hope he can continue to progress as he is now, he is being well coached & guided at present.


Ferencváros v Újpest  - Referee: Bognár Tamás (blue shirt) - Result 1-0
The evening game was the big derby and what an absolute cracker of a game it was.  Mr Bognár has to take credit for his and his teams role in that. Completely forgot he was even on the pitch until he stepped in on the rare times he needed to.  He can be very happy with his performance. My team were outstanding, best performance I have seen from them in a long while and if you look up the definition of undeserved win, this game will appear top of the list for an example. Fradi had 1 shot & scored a lucky goal. I am absolutely gutted by the result & it's going to take many many very large glasses of pálinka to get the emotions under control! Proud of my players though, proud of our manager and Mr Bognár was flawless.

Final observation of the evening - chocolate and nut pálinka must be the best thing ever invented, I'm off for another well however many until I am falling down!  ;D

No trouble - I appreciate the interest!  There was a time when both Paks and Pécs were in the NBI together, I was still fairly new to it all then & trying to learn who was who so I can fully resonate with the confusion of Paks & Pécs and DVSC & DVTK! The latter 2, even after 10 years of avid following, I do have to stop and think which is which sometimes! Wasn't helped of course with everyone seemingly playing in either green, the most common kit colour or red - those being the colours of the National flag (along with white). Just an occasional blue kit & my Lilák in purple! It's a bit better now but green and red are still the predominant 1st choice for kit colours.  Just as I have finally got my head around all of the Budapest derbies there are now only 3 Budapest clubs in the league!

To add Bácsi is Uncle. As names are back to front to the UK way ie Surname 1st, first name 2nd the term for Uncle/Aunt comes after the name so Charlie Bácsi is Uncle Charlie. In Hungary when you reach a certain age you start being referred to as Bácsi or Néni (aunt) by everyone! It's a respect thing. You will rarely hear an adult being referred to by someone younger than them (but especially a minor) by their first name alone. Depending on the relationship for U21's in particular it will always be Sir/Madam, Mr/Mrs or Uncle/Aunt.  A lot of our press guys and the fans we team up with on a weekend have reached the Bácsi stage and even our own age group use the term when speaking to each other.  They dare not call me Néni as I claim to be way too young!   ;D

Strange afternoon in the NBI.

I lasted 90 mins without cussing out Karakó (red shirt) - to be fair he had a decent game. 

Viktor (black shirt) was absolutely superb in his match.

Bognár (red shirt) for the 2nd week it was like he wasn't even on the pitch. Very much in the background performance again but stepped in when needed.

Bogár (red shirt) - decent game.

Erdős (blue shirt) - continued his good form.

I found out yesterday (bear in mind I've only been watching the NBI for 10 years!) that in the early rounds of the cup games the lower division team is always at home. I'm not sure if this just kicks in when the NBI teams join in in Round 6 or if it's also done when just (without being condescending) the little clubs are in it. When the draw is made, they don't do it 1st team out of the hat is at home and 2nd away, instead they get the pairing of teams and then the lower division team are made the home team and if the teams are in the same division then the 1st out of the hat is at home.  This is for 2 main reasons, firstly the home team gets the revenue so it's a way to ensure any monies made go to the lower division team, who like here, need it more than the bigger clubs but it's also the Federations way to encourage supporters to go along to non league and lower division grounds. Nice way to do it, imo. The latter stages of the cup are 2 legged (from round 9 - last 16 clubs) so each team gets a home & away tie.

They structure the leagues so that each tier of the game kicks off on different days/times. You could across a weekend go to a non-league game, NBI, NBII & NBIII game with no clash of kick off times etc The lower league teams never have evening games because they don't have floodlights. A lot of the grounds are literally a field - it's great!

A brief outline of yesterday's games before I get back to binge-watching series 2 of Murder Diagnosis!!  ;D

Puskás Akadémia 1-2 Budapest Honvéd: Solymosi Péter (Red shirt)
Absolutely superb game of football to watch. Thoroughly entertaining and the match officials played their part in that.  In terms of decisions there's none really to discuss, Mr Solymosi let the game flow naturally & rarely needed to step in. He did play one sublime advantage in Kispest's favour around the 40 min mark and went back to caution Knezevic of Felcsút for the original foul. The last 5-10 mins saw an onslaught on the Kispest goal by Felcsút and Kispest deploy several time wasting tactics! Tujvel (Kispest's goal keeper) was correctly cautioned for time wasting. The only other yellow was for Lanzafane (Kispest) for a foul. None I felt that were missed.

Ferencváros 1-1 Mezőkövesd Zsóry: Pintér Csaba (yellow shirt)
Didn't really watch this one, it was just on in the background. No controversies flagged up to me. 6 yellow cards - 3 a piece.

DVTK 3-1 Kisvárda Master Good: Berke Balázs (black shirt)
Battle down the bottom of the table & a much needed win for DVTK. Another thoroughly entertaining game. With the scores at 1-1 Berke gave a perfectly correct penalty to the home side for handball in the 62nd minute. With virtually the last kick of the game Berke gave the home team a second penalty, again no doubt with the decision. 3 yellows, 1 for the home team & 2 for the away team. Superb performance from team ref.

Kaposvári Rákóczi 2-3 Újpest: Pillók Ádám (black shirt)
Unfortunately our manager missed the game, as he was admitted to hospital pre-match. He has reassured missy bmb that he is fine & to stop worrying, missy bmb however is missy bmb and will continue to fuss & worry! Back to the football - a superb performance from this young man in his 3rd NBI game. Brilliant game to watch, the gaffer missed a cracker. 5 cracking goals. Only 2 yellow cards, both for fouls, both completely correct and both for my team! Team ref can be proud of their contribution to this game.

ZTE 3-3 Mol Fehérvár: Andó-Szabó Sándor (red shirt)
Top of the table v bottom of the table. Superb game of football. Can't say Andó-Szabó did anything wrong but his management style is not always the best. 7 yellows during the game, 3 for the home team, 4 for the away team. Nasty injury for Rus of Fehérvár which caused some delay & I thought was handled well by the ref. ZTE equalised at 90+3, leaving the teams in positions 1-3 all on 23 points! Fradi however have a game in hand v DVSC from MD1.

DVSC 3-1 Paks: Csonka Bence (blue shirt)
Excellent performance from this young man on his 2nd outing in the NBI. Charlie Bácsi was impressed with him from his view in the stands. Correctly awarded penalty for Loki around 30 mins in. Paks keeper saved but Loki scored from the parried away ball. 4 yellow cards, all for fouls. 1 for the home team, 3 for the away team.

As we are one third of the way through our season I decided to have a look at the ref stats so far in the NBI.

We still have 1 outstanding game to be played DVSC v Ferencváros from Match day 1, which was postponed as both clubs were still in Europe at that point. The Federation happily moves games around or postpones them to give our clubs the maximum preparation time for EL & CL games. No date has been announced for the rearranged game as yet.

Absolute bonkers afternoon so far in the NBI - 1 Red, 1YYR, another red that shows on flashscore as a straight red but Mr Kassai definitely showed a yellow and then the red so I think it was a YYR not straight red, 3 penalties - 2, both given by Mr Kassai, were saved in the same game & a Lilák win in the only game without either a red card or penalty! The rain was so heavy in Paks you could barely hear the commentator speaking over it.

The evening game seems rubbish in comparison! Kispest are 1-0 up at half time.

Shirt stat: Mr Erdős & Mr Iványi - black, Mr Kassai & Mr Bogár - red, Mr Pintér I am pleasantly surprised to see in blue!

The evening game seems rubbish in comparison! Kispest are 1-0 up at half time.


Looked like it was going to be a let down for 85 mins - score remained 1-0 to Kispest, then Sanninno having already been booked on his 1st game back from a totting up ban was sent off the bench along with Feczkó so not sure what was going on in the tech area! Both managers binned followed by Ivanovski of DVTK in the TAO!

I feel a bit cheated now in the Puskás Akadémia v Újpest game - only Saturday game with no red card and no penalties!

Sunday game - Fradi are 2-0 up at half time & looking like champions. No red cards or penalties yet! Mr Farkas in black, has had a decent 1st half. Played a lovely advantage for Fradi. Very quick to stop play for a head injury - Debrecen player headbutted his own teammate as they both jumped to clear a ball - Szecsi left with a nasty looking split lip. Theodoros Georgiou with 2 very tight, difficult offsides that he has called spot on. 2nd half just starting.

Thank the Lord of Football, that the proper football is back this week! Just getting in a reminder ahead of the appointments being announced tomorrow - Please send out the nincs sárga memo with the appointments Mr Puhl, add in a nincs rózsaszín just in case! bmb has #SolymosiWatch withdrawal symptoms so if you are feeling in a be nice to bmb mood...

I'm pretty sure Mr Puhl doesn't give a stuff about Missy bmb but happy bmb equals happy everyone else!  ;D

Post by: bmb on Fri 22 Nov 2019 16:54
Thanks Mr Puhl - missy bmb is a happy lady #SolymosiWatch  Would it be pushing it to ask for him to wear red this weekend?

I'd say these have to be potentially described as provisional appointments because there is no referee or AAR's named for the Fradi game as yet. No idea why but we could be waiting on the Saudi League (as neither Mr Kassai nor Mr Bognár appear anywhere & they are the 2 likely to feature in the Saudi League) or maybe a late fitness decision. As such there could yet be some changes particularly if we have to draught in NBII refs for the AAR roles! Ah just twigged it is a Sunday game (and can't be bothered to edit the above) so they may well not announce it until tomorrow!  This stance does seem very silly to me - far bigger leagues than ours name the referees 5/6 days in advance so I really don't know why we have the cloak & dagger mentality in Hungary. The countries where refs routinely get threatened I can understand it but we don't get that so it really baffles me.

Happy with young Mr Pillók on the Kispest game, one of 3 exciting youngsters being developed this season. Not so sure about Mr Karakó on the Vidi v Felcsút game - it has a habit of being a bad tempered affair & requires careful man management, which is not his strong point! Would have thought, Mr Iványi or Mr Solymosi would have been better on that one but I hope it goes well for him & a miracle occurs in that the players behave themselves for a change!

He might have the Fradi game on Sunday, the referee & AARs not announced for that yet. He might be in Saudi Arabia though as neither of his ARs have a game either & that suggests to me that he is there & not in Hungary.

Bognár has the Fradi game so I can only assume that Mr Kassai & his team are in Saudi Arabia this weekend on VAR experience.

Just a quickie - mega happy bmb as #SolymosiWatch came with a red shirt!  Mr Iványi & Mr Andó-Szabó in black, Mr Karakó in blue and Mr Pillók needs to be reporting to the naughty step.  Will do a run down of the games later or tomorrow but I'm going back to cussing out Mr Andó-Szabó for quite correctly booking my main man Branko for a dreadful tackle (bmb's fav player)
Title: Re: NBI Appointments Season 19/20
Post by: bmb on Sat 23 Nov 2019 22:13
So quick run down.

Budapest Honvéd 2-1 Paks -  Pillók Ádám (yellow shirt)
Paks need to take a long hard look at themselves, their behaviour and conduct today was absolutely disgraceful.  Every time the whistle went, and yes I mean literally, 5/6 players surrounded the ref whether the decision was for or against them. As for Böde's conduct after the penalty decision, I hope the disciplinary committee take a look at the video and give him a ban. National team legend or not he was a disgrace. Glad he went in the book at least.  Lanzafame also needs to take a long hard look at himself, his gamesmanship is embarrassing... He managed to con the ref once and my player or not - it's not on.  Wasn't a particularly enjoyable game to watch because of the conduct of the players, they ruined it with their poor behaviour. Paks goal was a great header, Kispest's equaliser came from a penalty & the winner, well if a question of sport was still going it was a definite candidate for 'what happened next'. Not a clue what the defender was trying to do but he kicked the ball about 1 foot at most less than 6 yards out and with an empty net behind him, Naser Aliji said thank you very much and slotted it home. Sunday league stuff! Aside of failing to read the "nincs sárga" memo (sort him out please Mr Puhl...) the young ref did well, he remained calm despite being surrounded constantly, calmly stepped back. I think his inexperience does show at times & the odd thing I think he would have handled differently if he was a bit more experienced but he also shows a great deal of maturity at times as well. Decision making was decent overall, positioning decent, fitness excellent. Hope he keeps progressing as is currently.

Mol Fehérvár 1-3 Puskás Akadémia - Karakó Ferenc (blue shirt)
Ok hands up - he seems to have done well over all in the game. It was one of my small screen games & I wasn't paying too much attention to it but no howls of dismay my way, asking me to "explain that". Didn't build a rapport with players, they dislike him & it shows. I was included in a whatsapp chat today with staff members of both teams and they confirmed how disliked he is shall we say! A few words I didn't need translated as my cussing is pretty good but I learned 3 new insults today! I will add that whilst I was added into the chat, I never commented once. Lots of dissent his way during the game & quite how he can justify no yellow card for Juhasz is completely beyond me - he did walk off a couple of times when Roli was airing his expert opinion(!) and leave him looking stupid as he was yakking to thin air but this is a player that never shuts up, his mouth starts moving from the whistle to start the game & does not stop. He is constantly in the refs ear for 90 mins. I don't know if it's just because he is a National team legend that he gets away with it but Mr Karakó is not alone in not booking him. I wish some of the referees would - not a game goes by where he could pick up a YYR for dissent. If he spent as much time playing football as he does in giving the ref the benefit of his far superior opinion then he might actually break into a sweat! Penalty for Felcsút - not sure if it was given for the shirt pull, the elbow in the back or the kick to the ankles! Young Fehérvár player who then had the audacity to claim he had played the ball! Surprised the Felcsút players shirt was not ripped - he'd virtually yanked it off of his back, before elbowing him and kicking him! Few minor inconsistencies but he importantly got the big call right. The penalty was saved but Felcsút went onto score a 3rd goal before Roli got a consolation goal for Fehérvár - think it was the only time his mouth stopped moving for him to touch the ball!

Mezőkövesd Zsóry 2-0 Kaposvári Rákóczi - Solymosi Péter (red shirt)
Got my #SolymosiWatch & got my red shirt to go with it so bmb is a very happy lady. Mr Puhl may even get a small pálinka with his Christmas card ;) Easy game to referee in terms of player conduct, both sets of players were well behaved & respected the referee. He played a lovely advantage for Mezőkövesd in the 35th min, I hate that 1 handed signal though! Penalty for Mezőkövesd looked spot on for me. Kaposvári manager was moaning about it post match and saying it was yet another example of them being picked on by the mean referees because they are the little team in the league - no mention of his lack of tactics and the fact his players look out of their depth in the top flight though - who knew!  They are sure to be relegated and not because of mean referees but because they are an NBII team & nowhere near good enough for the NBI & he has the same level of tactical nous as missy bmb (ie zero!). Steady, competent performance from a safe & reliable pair of hands. Please do not let him retire over the winter break Mr Puhl...

Kisvárda Master Good 1-0 DVSC - Iványi Zoltán (black shirt)
Having incurred the wrath of Missy bmb for excessisve yellow wearing Mr Iványi turned out in black again! This was my other little screen game so I may have missed something but Charlie Bácsi was watching this one & didn't mention him. From what I saw, like with Mr Solymosi it was a typical steady, competent performance from a safe & reliable pair of hands. Another who is liked and respected by players & is a wise, experienced old head, rarely anything of major note in his games.

Újpest 0-2 DVTK - Andó-Szabó Sándor (black shirt)
Oh dear oh dear and no not Mr Andó-Szabó who had a decent game. My team on the other hand...He did book Branko, my fav player, and whilst a correct decision in law it's plainly wrong morally! ;) Branko had an absolute mare of a game actually but let's not go there. Nothing to say about Mr Andó-Szabó, he just got on with it & did what he had to and well. My team were an absolute shambles, DVTK on the other other hand were organised, played well & deserved the win. The only Lilák positive is that Litauszki is back from injury ahead of schedule.  Off to drink pálinka with the manager now until we can no longer remember the horror show we watched today.

Well done team ref - it was a good day for them.

Ferencváros 3-2 ZTE - Tamás Bognár (blue shirt)
Mr Bognár's great season continues and another competent and flawless display from him. Penalty for Fradi which raised the issue of DOGSO on twitter - Fradi fans bleating that Bobal was only given a yellow & not a red. I patiently pointed out the LOTG to to them - Bobal clearly not only tried to play the ball but did in fact play it & a penalty and yellow card was the correct call - funnily enough various tweets disappeared rather sharply off my timeline as Fradi fans embarrassed by being told to learn the LOTG deleted them! Couple of excellent tight non offside calls by Mr Kóbor.  Super game to watch, Fradi nowhere near their best today but still scored 3 decent goals & missed a penalty! ZTE never gave up and I did think they were going to sneak an equaliser in TAO. Sadly not! As one of our MagyarFoci crowd said on twitter - ZTE might be the best team ever to be relegated.

Well done Mr Bognár & team for a performance worth of our #2 referee.

Mr Puhl's Christmas card saved from the bin! #SolymosiWatch tomorrow!! Thank you for not being THAT cruel Mr Puhl!

Ferencváros v Puskás Akadémia
2019.12.08 - 15:45
Budapest, Groupama Aréna
Referee: Andó-Szabó Sándor
4O: Szécsényi István
AR: Ring György, Vígh-Tarsonyi Gergő
AAR: Farkas Ádám, Solymosi Péter

Also a good weekend shirt wise so far, hoping that continues tomorrow!!

Mr Iványi was excellent in the early game. Couple of absolutely sublime advantages but hard to shine in a game that was quite frankly dire! He strolled around in a short sleeved shirt, while the players all had long sleeves, undershirts & gloves!  Nice bit of snow piled up at the side of the pitch. No snow around any of the later game pitches.

In the current games Mr Kassai & Mr Erdős in blue, Mr Bognár & Mr Pintér in black!

Team ref continued to have a good afternoon. 

You'd have been excused for thinking Mr Bognár had failed to attend as he was so much in the background. He allowed the game to flow around him, he was rarely needed to step in & he did so on those rare times. Lovey game of football to watch. Lovely but frustrating if you are a lilák fan like me! We should have won at least 6-0 but unfortunately our strikers are not of the same standard of quality as team ref! We can't even claim that the other keeper played a worldy - 5 shameful misses, not saves but misses! Still we won, kept a clean sheet & that is all that matters! Obinna's goal was a thing of absolute beauty.

Mr Kassai was decent in the Kispest game.  It was a superb game to watch. Debrecen v Honvéd normally is, there's no real shenanigans but 2 good footballing teams. Penalty shout for Loki, none given & I think it was the right call, simple coming together as 2 players legally challenged for the ball. Couple of ace advantages both ways and both AR's on the ball with a couple of tight offside decisions. Team ref can happy with their performance & neither team have any cause for complaint. I do believe that during the post match handshakes Mr Kassai was seen smiling with a couple of players from each team - smiling! Not even the merest hint of his epic death stare & smiling, he must have been glad to have been on home soil for a change!!

Mr Pintér - steady performance from him. He's never going to be a spectacular referee but he is a safe pair of hands. No issues at all in his game.

Mr Erdős - hilarious moment in his game. Roli from MOL Fehérvár & Böde from Paks had a bit of a spat going on at one point. 2 ex National team players, both legends, both whingy, whiney, pathetic dudes these days who spend 90 mins trying to referee games instead of playing! Both love the sound of their own voice in the referee's ear from start to finish - how they don't get booked for dissent every single game is really beyond me. When I saw them having a spat I quipped "oh I bet they are arguing over whose turn it is to give the referee the benefit of their 'expert opinion' ", much hilarity amongst the Magyar Foci group & press guys at that comment, who agreed that I was probably right! Not a clue why they were throwing handbags at each other in the first place but I stand by my quip as the real reason! Mr Erdős was great he threw the pair of them such a withering look & I'm pretty sure he rolled his eyes at them as well! Paks did however throw the entire prediction league into disarray by winning & causing every single participant 3 points lost!

Now for #SolymosiWatch

Can I just put it on record - Mr Puhl, I love you! No honestly, love him to the moon and back! Oh and best Missy bmb get straight to the post box to post Mr Puhl's Christmas card! Ah yes and I appear to be in need of bribing persuading someone to drop off a bottle of pálinka at the MLSZ JB building as a "you rock" gift for Mr Puhl!!! Tünde, when are you next in Budapest sweetie?

Oh yes, will do the appointments in a moment but in case you hadn't guessed #SolymosiWatch coincides perfectly with the emotion derbi match!!! Hajrá Kispest, Hajrá Lilák, Hajrá játékvezetői csapat!! 

Oh and just for good measure Hajrá Mr Puhl!

bmb is a happy happy lady!  ;D ;D

We are now in the winter break - boooooo!

The stats for the Autumn season are as follows:

Games: 95 *Still 1 game yet to be rescheduled DVSC v Ferencváros from Match day 1, it will happen possibly early February around the time of round 9 of the Magyar Kupa as both teams have been eliminated.
YC: 461 – H:208; A:253   - Average 4.85/game
YYR: 10 – H:2; A:8 – Average 0.11/game   
RC: 10 – H:7; A:3 – Average 0.11/game *Joint red average 0.21/game

Shirts stats: Black: 37.9% – Blue: 29.5% – Red: 24.2% – Yellow: 8.4% Not a bad effort at all if I may say so! Just need to eliminate that 8.4% from the Spring season & perfection will be reached!  ;D

16 appointments for mr Solymosi. bmb definitely isn't on mr Puhl's naughty step.  :D

I was definitely on Mr Puhl's naughty step on MD8 & MD14! No #SolymosiWatch on either of those Matchdays!

Overall our referees have had a fantastic autumn season. 1 main exception with 3 dreadful games, 2 ok games & only 1 game of a level he should be displaying week in week out consistently!! It has been wonderful to see our youth starting to come through, Gergő Bogár is the Hungarian version of Michael Oliver.  If you get a chance to watch him please do.  Was hoping he'd get a white badge this Jan but looks like next year now. Ádám Pillók & Bence Csonka both look very exciting prospects, bit early to really judge their long term potential but they seem to be developing very well right now and I think we will see more of them in the Spring season.  Balázs Berke is really coming into his own this season, his knowledge & application of the LOTG is exceptional. It's between him & Bognár who have been the top performers so far. I'd say Bognár is shading it right now, he has been phenomenal. Our 4 safe pair of hands have barely put a foot wrong - Solymosi, Iványi, Pintér & Erdős. Solymosi has been giving Iványi a run for his money on best advantages played. Mr Kassai just shuns us for leagues that has VAR these days! Always a rare treat to see him actually on home soil.

Only 39 days 6 hours and 17 minutes until the spring season starts!

You're welcome!

It was overall a very positive appraisal. Mr Puhl should be delighted that the development of our youngsters has not gone unnoticed, the hard work being put in by him, the committee and the coaching team is really paying dividends. The 3 new lads are being coached brilliantly right now, developing well and our future looks very positive. Loving this season so far in refereeing terms, it has been a fantastic autumn season overall. We do just need to hope that no-one brings it to the Lovely Mr Solymosi's attention!

Now if we can just keep Mr Solymosi for another year or 2 or 3, achieve a -8 on the yellow shirt figures in the spring season and in case I forget to mention this one - persuade Mr Solymosi not to retire yet <------ even more important than the -8 then bmb will be one very happy lady & you will be needing to pay a visit to Kanai Utca with a very large bottle of pálinka for me! Fingers crossed Mr Puhl has epic powers of persuasion, talks the lovely Mr Solymosi into another +1 year & starts training him up as a coach for when the inevitable day comes & he breaks Missy bmb's heart by hanging up his whistle!!  I like Mr Puhl enough to share my pálinka with him & you know how I am with my pálinka - you can look but not touch!  ;D

That's brilliant. Thank you - now I shall not get my DV's mixed up, and it's cleared up other things, such as Paks having nothing to do with Pécs.

Just as a probably non interesting snippet - Pécs have drawn Paks in round 9 of the Magyar Kupa. Game on 12th Feb in Pécs & the 2nd leg in Paks on 19th Feb!

The players have returned to training already! Very short winter break this time. 25 days 4 hours 44 mins 23 seconds until kick off! (újpest have a timer running on their website!!)

Shortest winter break we have ever had and it has been way, way too long! I was reduced to actually watching a PL game - desperation had well & truly kicked in obviously! Tünde can confirm this as she spent 90 mins having to listen to me on skype moaning about the PL!

Been a few changes over the winter, as short as it was! The lovely András Herczeg resigned from DVSC due to their poor start, he has taken a role in the academy, which I think he will be fantastic at. Zoltán Vitelki has taken over.  Marko Nikolic was sacked by MOL Fehérvar before the season ended and Joan Carrillo has taken over there. Sannino is surprise, surprise suspended for the beginning of the season! The surprise being it's only for 2 matches! He's had several yellow cards (about 6 or 7 & 2 reds - not bad in 14 games - yes we've played 16 but he was suspended for 2 of them!...) Idiot! The league's top goalscorer has left Lilák for Vasas - in the NBII  :-\ Still my sweet Soma is on the brink of returning from South Korea or wherever it is that he has been for the past year or so!

No Mr Kassai  :'( No György Ring (that one is going to really hit Missy bmb hard at some point) but at least #SolymosiWatch is continuing until at least him hitting 300 games (8 to go) or if Missy bmb is really lucky until May - preferably 2021 not 2020!! Oh and no Zsolt Varga either - he has hung up his flags  :'(

Roll on 14.55 CET on Saturday!

Hajrá Lilák. Csak a Kispest. Hajrá játékvezetői csapat!

I am told that this is the farewell match for Dr Zsolt Varga.  There was a lot of discontent that there had been no award for him on his last day, as is customary in Hungary, so I get the feeling this game has been awarded for that to now happen!

So a very quiet start to the season. 6 games, 21 yellow cards, 4 red cards (2 straight, 2 YYR) and 2 penalties! 3 black shirts, 2 red shirts & 1 blue shirt.

Ferencváros v Paks - Referee: Iványi Zoltán (black shirt)
4-0 home win for the top team and a performance that shows why they will be champions yet again this season. Paks did not put up much of a contest granted but I don't think Fradi needed to get out of 1st gear all game. They looked confident, played a fluid passing game and they will be worthy champions at some point in the not too distant future. It's not over mathematically but they are out of Europe, out of the Magyar Kupa and their only focus is the league.

2 goals from Oleksandr Zubkov, 1 in each half, a 1st half goal from Franck Boli and a 2nd half one from Isael, sealed the points. They could have scored more. Kenny Otigba made his 1st appearance in around 18 months following a long injury & looked decent. Good to see him back, he's a quality player to watch.

As for team ref - typical Zoltán Iványi performance. Man management superb, some decent advantages for Fradi but then Paks didn't give him the chance to play any for them! Foul detection decent & consistent. 5 yellow cards, all for fouls and all spot on. Didn't feel he missed any. Sigér for the home team, Lenzsér, Kecskés, Poór and Szabó for the away team. One particularly excellent non offside call from Theodoros Georgiou in the lead up to one of the goals, both he and István Albert put in a decent shift.

Well done Fradi & well done Team Ref!

Mol Fehérvár v Budapest Honvéd - Referee: Berke Balázs (Blue shirt)
Well the really good news is that Sannino went a full 90 mins without a card - ok so he had a touchline ban but I'm sure he could still manage to find a way to be on the end of a card! Love his passion, hate how he conducts himself!

0-0 draw but the game was anything but boring. Good contest between the 2 teams - neither dominated, it was a finely matched game and Mr Berke was quite content to let it flow around him but step in when needed. Good performance from him & his team, he is super fit and no trouble keeping up with play. Knowledge and application of the LOTG superb & consistent.

Only 2 yellow cards in this one - Ikenne-King and Lanzafame, both Kispest for fouls. I did think Fiola of MOL was lucky to get a yellow as well, but as it's subjective I can go with his decision not to give him one.  Red card for Aliji for violent conduct. Bit of something out of nothing but if you give the referee the decision to make then you can't complain when he makes it.  He'll be joining Sannino in the stands next week!

Mezőkövesd Zsóry v Kisvárda Master Good - Referee: Solymosi Péter (Red shirt)
Guess which game was the main focus of bmb's attention in the 4 mid afternoon games!

Decent game to watch and a 1-0 home win. The lovely Mr Solymosi looking very fit & trim. He continues to prove that he is more than capable of putting in a good shift despite being older than what was the retirement age for so long. He kept up with play well, his decision making was accurate and consistent.

4 yellow cards, Aleksandr Karnitskiy, for the home team, Roman Karasiuk, Viktor Hei, and Rados Protic for the away team - all for fouls and all spot on. Simovic was also cautioned for a foul after around 30 mins, just before half time there was a bit of an altercation between him and a player from Mezőkövesd, I'm not sure if was the player that he had fouled 15 mins previously or not.  Mr Solymosi took them both to one side and gave them both a good talking too, seemed like good man management. Simovic was visibly not happy, given his demeanor and having a lot to say for himself, the player from Mezőkövesd held out his hand for a handshake & Simovic slapped it away. At this point Mr Solymosi called over the captain and going on body language told him to calm his player down, as the captain approached Simovic there was an exchange between them and Simovic started to shout at the referee and then walked off shouting. At that point he was given a 2nd yellow for dissent and off he went for an early bath. Rest of the game passed without undue incident. Mr Solymosi has more patience than me, I would have given him the 2nd yellow as soon as he slapped the Mezőkövesd player's hand away but he still tried to calm the situation first.

Old skool sensible performance from him. Couple of superb calls from Vencel Tóth to top off a performance that team ref can be very happy with.

ZTE v DVTK - Referee: Karakó Ferenc (Red shirt)
One of my small screen games so I didn't watch & the Euro water sports final took priority today!!

1-3 away win, ZTE will be very disappointed with their defending judging by Chris's comments! Chris is one of our MagyarFoci crowd & was watching. 3 yellow cards - Bence Bedi & Nikola Mitrovic for fouls and Benjamin Babati for USB. Chris was happy enough with them.

1 big incident, which I have seen on the góóól show which was a penalty for a foul on Ikoba, was a correct decision. All in all looks like a decent performance from him & I do hope that he can maintain that for the rest of the season. I would actually rather him be doing well than not!


Kaposvári Rákóczi v Puskás Akadémia - Referee: Erdős József (black shirt)
My other small screen game and no-one from our group were really watching it. 1-1 draw which is a huge result for Kaposvár. They are firmly entranced at the foot of the table and certain to go down. Felscút will not be happy, they are in 4th place and would have been hoping for 3 points as they are after a European place. 2 yellow cards Igors Tarasovs for handball for the home team and Csaba Spandler for a foul from the away team. Yoëll Van Nieff was also sent off - YYR as opposed to straight red. The 2nd yellow is listed as persistent fouling. Can't comment as I've not watched the game.

DVSC v Újpest - Referee: Farkas Ádám (Black shirt)
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear and that is aimed at my team and not team referee. It would appear that our defence decided that they wanted an extra week off and decided against turning up! 4-0 home win and a shameful and embarrassing performance from my Lilák. Mr beautiful said after the game that the team had played like children, with no confidence and with trembling legs and granted Loki a easy win with a myriad of mistakes. He's not far off - bit politer than I would put it but then I'm not the manager being interviewed live on national TV minutes after the team had completely humiliated themselves so I can be less polite!!! Love Nebojsá but the entire team can go and sit on the naughty step - shameful from each and every one of them. Banai made Pajovic look world class, a complete comedy of a goalkeeping performance and that is being polite! I checked with everyone that it was Banai not Pajovic in goal, he was really that bad. In fact he was even worse than that bad. The sound of his flapping about aimlessly drowned out what little crowd had bothered to turn up. I'm pretty sure the 2,120 people there kept checking to see if they were at the football or the circus...

In fairness to Loki, they looked more like the Loki we expect to see than the lacklustre Loki we saw in the autumn. They put in a decent shift. The 2nd goal was a thing of pure beauty (well if you're not the opposition). A great bit of individual play from Varga and he deserves plaudits for his run, at least half the length of the pitch followed by a beautiful pinpoint cross to Szécsi for his 2nd goal of the game.  It could be pointed out that had our defence actually bothered to turn up to the game that someone might have put in a tackle somewhere along the way and had Banai not being trying to see if his arms had turned into wings yet and had stopped flapping for a second and tried to I dunno, keep goal or something... That would however be very churlish, it was great play by Varga and a very sulky and bratty bmb has to concede that!

So onto team ref. Usual lenient performance from Mr Farkas. He didn't really do anything wrong. 5 yellow cards, 3 for Loki Erik Kusnyír for USB and Márk Szécsi and Richard Csősz for fouls and for my hapless lot, Péter Szakály and Dzenan Burekovic for fouls. 2 further incidents of note. After a 4 min spell (49-53 mins) where Loki were content to play on by themselves and Lilák were in the pub supping cocktails or something and conceded 2 goals that the 1st of which an U4 team would have been embarrassed to concede and the 2nd which I have grudgingly acknowledged above, the manager took the bold move to make all 3 subs at one. On came Patrik Bacsa for his debut, 5 mins later he was in the bath after receiving a red for a professional foul. It did feel a soft red, not wrong but soft, that could however be my slipping Lilák rosetints though that think that! It was a stupid tackle but not entirely convinced it warranted a red. Banai went the right way for the subsequent penalty but there it was 3-0. Just 5 mins later it was 4-0, Adeniji taking advantage of Banai's obsession with doing big bird impressions and the humiliation was complete.

The manager is understandably furious with the boys complete lack of effort and I think he will be kicking some butt this week in training. Let's hope our defence in particular decide to actually start the season next week...  ::)

Aliji - 2 match ban, Bacsa, Simovic, Van Nieff - 1 match ban. The decision from the disciplinary committee this week. 

I like how we do it in Hungary. It's not a set ban, each incident gets reviewed by the disciplinary committee on either Tuesday or Thursday and the ban given reflects the seriousness of the incident. No automatic 3 match ban for violent conduct - a more minor touching of heads in a square up for example might get a red but only 1 match ban, a professional foul that was dreadful & a potential leg breaker/career ender could end up with 3/4+ game ban. It always tends to be a 1 match ban for a YYR though.

BMB, if you were to compare the Hungarian refs to English ones, who would they closely resemble, (in terms of refereeing not looks 😉)

Great question ajb

I suspect most on here will have seen Vad & Bognár at some point on a European game but not really any of the others.

Tamás Bognár - maybe Martin Atkinson. Very steady, consistent, reliable, good decision making, fitness and positioning excellent and adapts well between domestic games & Europe.
István Vad - perhaps how many of this board seem to perceive Clatts in terms of a very cocky, arrogant persona on the pitch (and off of it by all accounts - Vad not Clatts, who is lovely). That would be where any potential similarity ends though. He's very fit, fittest ref we have, positioning is good but he is very inconsistent, decision making all to often is erratic. Too many errors, big & small - more Mason than Clatts in that regard!
Ádám Farkas - maybe a young Andre Marriner. Fitness is good, positioning decent. Mainly steady & reliable but can be too over lenient.  Works well in Europe but not so well in the NBI. They are used to a very strict application of the LOTG & Farkas often confuses players by waving play on for things everyone else would give a foul for. He's not afraid of making a decision but sometimes needs to be more proactive in domestic games.
Balázs Berke - Clatts. Confident, a bit cocky at times, a bit of a rebel, does what is right not necessarily what he has been told! Fitness is up there with Vad's, positioning excellent, knowledge and application of the LOTG superb, becoming very consistent but when he does **** up he will do so in spectacular fashion!
Ferenc Karakó - the young Stuart Attwell. Showed a huge amount of promise & there is no doubt there is an excellent referee inside of him somewhere but he was promoted too soon, pushed too far too soon & it has had a very detrimental effect on him and his development. He's either too lenient or too strict - no balance. There is at least 1 bad game changing error in virtually every game. Shame really because when he does have a good game he is excellent, sadly those games come just 1 in 10!
Péter Solymosi - Scott Mathieson. The ultimate safe, steady, reliable pair of hands. Great rapport with players, calm, relaxed, fitness decent, positioning decent, man management superb, high consistency, great use of the advantage & uses the 2 handed signal still - good man. Not spectacular, very underrated and 99.9% of the time puts in a decent performance. Very rare bad errors.
Zoltán Iványi - probably as with Péter Solymosi, a Scott Mathieson type referee & similar attributes. He is probably our closest in terms of any flamboyance. He is also the only one who would ever get away with doing so. Whereas Péter is perhaps quieter and less demonstrative, if a player is having a tantrum, Iványi will do an exaggerated shrug of the shoulders or throw his arms in the air, and the players will always end up laughing. He has the personality and respect of the players to carry it off. King of the advantages although Péter is challenging him well there this season!
Csaba Pintér/Sándor Andó-Szabó are probably Graham Scott types - steady, reliable more often than not, just get on with it, consistent in the main but not spectacular.
József Erdős - not sure who I would compare him to! For a long while he was a very frustrating referee, he was overweight and unfit and it affected his ability to referee.  He has worked really hard though to lose weight and get his fitness sorted and now he can keep up with play his positioning is decent & there is a good consistency in his decision making. He can still have his erratic moments but over the past 2-3 seasons has grown from a complete car crash of a referee into a safe pair of hands. That has been good to watch actually. In terms of the hard work he has put in to keep improving himself maybe a 2nd time around Stuart Attwell. He never gave up, kept working hard & it has paid off for him finally.
Ádám Pillók is on the naughty step and I refuse to discuss him right now! He made Péter wear yellow last night so now is not a good time! I'm in a very unforgiving mindset towards him right now...
Gergő Bogár - I recently described him as the Hungarian Michael Oliver. This kid is such an exciting prospect. He's been on the NBI for 2 seasons now & referees with that same maturity Oliver does. His consistency is there, good fitness, reliable decision making more often than not. Just needs to grow a bit in self confidence and man management.
Bence Csonka - I would put him with Gergő Bogár as a young Michael Oliver. He's around 2 years behind Bogár in developmental terms but there is something very special about him. He's only 1st season NBI and has a way to go but I'd put him down as a FL Oliver and Bogár as a PL Oliver at the moment.

Obviously just my opinions on them!

The derby has been cancelled because whoever laid Lilák's new pitch "forgot" to weave the synthetic & real grass together or something along those lines & the pitch literally fell apart when it was played on. The Federation have declared our pitch unfit & we will now have to play our 'home' games 175km away until it is fixed & approved.   The derby is the best, hope it will be arranged for a date I will be there!

Another key match error for Karakó last night in the Újpest v Fehérvár Magyar Kupa match. He was the only NBI referee used this round, the rest of the games were refereed by NBII referees. 1st time I have seen Mihály Káprály who is doing the Honvéd game - happy with his performance so far. Anyway I digress - Karakó missed the ball over the line & Fehérvár should have had a goal. The game ended 0-0. The ball is in the goal keepers hands in the attached photo, Banai pushes it back out and it is cleared by the defenders. Róbert Horváth was AR that end. To be fair to both of them it was cleared in a split second and was very hard to determine in real time. Watching live I did say at the time that I thought the ball had gone over but wasn't sure and it is only with the benefit of watching replays that it is obvious. Whilst he has clearly got the call wrong I don't think there is anything that he could have done differently to get it right. He needed VAR or an AAR to help him out with it. No AAR in the cup games until round 10, which are the quarter finals.

Mihály Káprály handled the post match brawl very well. Szekér went for Lanzafame & it all kicked off, players from both sides and coaches all joining in. Kálnoki-Kis was literally throwing punches at anyone & everyone, Jagodic touched heads with Lanzafame before trying to throw a punch or 2. Both Jagodic & Kálnoki-Kis given red cards, quite rightly. The only thing I think he should also have done was a yellow card for Szekér who started it all. Shameful behaviour from both teams & I suspect the disciplinary committee will be meeting tomorrow to review their conduct and both will be fined at the very least. They deserve any punishment coming their way.

Mr Solymosi wearing y****w 3 times in 5 days, followed by Karakó on the 1st leg of the Kupa semi finals, followed by the y****w wearing Vad for the 2nd leg of the Magyar Kupa semi final!

Harsh Mr Puhl, harsh. Not sharing my pálinka with him ever again....

the y****w wearing Vad for the 2nd leg of the Magyar Kupa semi final!


As inept as ever, still at least he turned up unlike my team! He was our best defender by a mile tonight, several minor errors & mostly in my teams favour, not that it helped them, they'd have had to have been on the pitch for that phenomenon to occur!

Thought our captain, Lita summed it up well post match when he said "It's been a crisis since weeks, not sure what we were expecting. It's difficult to give an interview in a calm manner. We play s**t since weeks, pardon my language. We don't win duels, give the ball away often, we can't do like this! Our opponent could have scored 5-6 goals from our mistakes and we're doing this since weeks! Everyone has to dig deep and think about it because this won't be enough. We need to fight and we are not doing that now"

Dear Lord of football it was a very depressing Magyar Kupa evening. Roll on the league on Saturday! Hopefully #SolymosiWatch will clash with Lilák and come with a red shirt thrown in for good measure! Give me something to smile about at least! I'll settle for a black wearing Erdős, that would raise a half a smile...

I don't think there is enough pálinka in the world...

Mr Erdős has the pleasure of my Lilák, the lucky, lucky man! Let's hope my boys have finally woken up to the fact the season has re-started and they turn up for this game!

I'll settle for a black wearing Erdős, that would raise a half a smile...


A black wearing Erdős it was! My team turned up as well - mostly anyway! Correct pen in our favour & my sweet Soma (Novothny) got his gól for Néni. He had another goal disallowed later in the game for a perfectly correct offside call by Lémon. 3 absolutely vital points and tonights pálinka can be celebratory instead of drowning my sorrows!

Bognár, Berke & Karakó all in blue. Pillók on the naughty step - again! Iványi in red. Karakó giving each side a penalty in a 1-1 draw. Pillók providing the now customary weekly red card, correct call on a DOGSO red. Last time we had a red free weekend was Match day 15 - 7th/8th December 31 yellows 0 reds! 7 consecutive sets of matchdays with a least 1 red card! We have a little wager running in the press box as to when the next red free matchday will be!

One final thing for today:

2 év. Nyugodj békében Bence. A szívem csak újra eltört. Mi sosem felejtunk el. Az Ő szíve pihen, a miénk vérzik, a fájdalmat csak az élők érzik. / 2 years. Rest in peace Bence. My heart just broke again. We will never forget. His heart is resting, ours are bleeding, the pain is only felt by the living.   :'( :'(

I think I deserve a red wearing #SolymosiWatch on Lilák next week Mr Puhl... Been a hard day emotionally.

Just to point out it was Szalai with the correct offside call to rule out the 2nd Lilák goal not Lémon.  He had an extremely tight one (as in mm) not long after which I also believe he called spot on.

Mr Karakó actually gave 3 penalties, all perfectly correct decisions. 1st one for Kispest was saved/missed. One of those - it was taken dreadfully and my great great granny could have saved it so never know whether to describe those as saved or missed! Pleased to see him get the important calls correct. His YC procedure needs urgent reviewing though - it still sucks! He followed Varga around from behind him and eventually showed a YC to his back - correct yellow but the player was completely unaware that he had been booked until a team mate pointed it out to him. Silly stuff like that ruins what was a good performance with some excellent decision making.

It's so lovely to see Eszter Urbán back. First appearance since 22nd September 2018!! As that works out at 75 weeks ago and maternity leave in Hungary is for 72 weeks I assume she has been on maternity leave. Her lovely smile has been missed. Another one of our talented females who imo should be refereeing NBI games along with Katalin Kulcsár.

NBI debut for Aradi József. Nice to see another new face.

Red shirt & a red whistle to match!

Excellent performance as well, my team lost but there were 2 cracking goals - one for each team.

Talking of red, Missy bmb is one of just 2 remaining in the red card sweepstake after today's 3 red cards! 1 hour left of the Fradi v Loki game so todays total still has time to increase!
Title: Re: NBI Appointments Season 19/20
Post by: bmb on Thu 05 Mar 2020 10:44
1st leg of the Magyar Kupa quarter finals concluded last night. Watched 2 very differing games. The first was a very dreadful, dull, dire 0-0 draw - I only persisted as it was my Kispest playing, well they were on the pitch, not sure playing would be the right word, even a smiley Mr Iványi was unable to inject any form of life into the game. He did very well however to remain awake for the full 90 mins. He could easily have a dragged an armchair out into the centre circle and settled himself down with a book, his pipe and slippers and he'd have not missed a thing! It. was. dreadful! He did wear black though so 10/10 for that and had his very smiley face on so he can have another 10/10 for that. Hope the 2nd leg next week is better!

ZTE v Vidi was a much better watch. Lively and entertaining, like a cup tie should be. ZTE are currently 11th, Vidi sorry MOL Fehérvár are 2nd with 22 points separating them in the league. ZTE were deserved 2-0 winners - the goal from Ikobe was a thing of beauty, curled into the top corner, Kovacsik didn't stand a chance. He's not been starting (Ikoba not Kovacsik obviously!) and I think he dared the new ZTE manager to not give him a chance with that cracker last night! 2nd goal from Hegedus. Demjén, ZTE's keeper is the national team U21 keeper & what a keeper he is. He made some cracking saves last night, can't wait to see this kid in the 1st team - he's very special, we just need 10 outfielders to go with him!!!

The game was refereed very well overall by Bence Csonka (red shirt). He remains an exciting prospect. Unfortunately in bmb's opinion he missed a clear red on Fiola. Fiola did get a yellow but I don't think Mr Csonka was in a position to see all of the incident or he would have issued a red. He's not a referee who will shy away from making a big call. Radó was sat on the floor and Fiola grabbed him by the back of the neck & started to pull him up, I think that is the part Mr Csonka would have been unable to see as players would have been obstructing his view and as the 2 players involved would have been facing him it was on his blindside. As Radó got up, Fiola then went head to head with him, it was very aggressive & could have warranted a red on its own merit. I could go with a yellow if that was all there was to it but it wasn't. Disgraceful conduct from an older, experienced National Team player who really should know better. Not sure if it can be dealt with retrospectively (Hungary is a law unto itself in those terms) but I hope it is and an upgraded to the red it should have been and he gets a deserved ban for it. One where VAR would/could have been of use! Our disciplinary committee though is excellent to be fair to them and if the full incident was picked up by the observer or is picked up on reviewing the game there is a chance they will look at it and deal with it. It caused a stir with the commentators and this is likely to have it reviewed by someone in the Ivory Towers. Whatever else we may get wrong in Hungary our disciplinary committee is an example of how to do it right, every incident is quickly dealt with on individual merit and apart from a standard 1 match ban for a YYR the ban is variable. They also support and defend the referees. A couple of seasons ago when a player went head to head with Csaba Pintér who was referee it was a 4 month ban, he was also immediately sacked by his club for it. I love how our discipline works and the English FA would do well to take a note...

If ZTE go down then they will have been the best team in the NBI to end up relegated, they are a great team to watch, play some lovely football but they have struggled to find any luck since promotion - personally I'd rather Paks in 10th go down than ZTE but this is the NBI and with 10 games to go the only certainty is that Kaposvár will be relegated! Good riddance as well, their coach is a bore, starts every interview with yeah but the referee... His lack of tactics are to blame for their league position but as he takes no responsibility for it nothing will change! Fradi should win the league, 3 points clear with 2 games in hand & Rebrov is a fantastic coach but they suffered an unexpected heavy defeat in the league last weekend so...

Post by: bmb on Sat 07 Mar 2020 21:51
#SolymosiWatch came with a black shirt & black whistle today. I'm sure he could have worn red but I'm not going to complain about it!!

Paks 0-0 Budapest Honvéd - Solymosi Péter (black shirt)

About on par with the midweek Kupa game, slightly less dire & it did come with #SolymosiWatch which is enough excellence on it's own ;) Decent performance from team ref, his positioning was a bit off 3/4 times & he was a bit close to play but nothing major. Beyond having to decide which shirt to wear to keep Missy bmb happy I don't think he had a decision to make! Game was cardless - none were needed. He did wear long sleeves - the wimp!

DVTK 2-1 Újpest - Erdős József (black shirt)

I feel a bit for Mr Erdős - he's not well liked in District IV or on our travels! It has to be said straight away, it is not his fault that our players are completely clueless when it comes to Law 11! 2/3 weeks ago he correctly disallowed a goal for offside and then today it was 2. Both decisions were correct - Szert Balázs spot on with his flag both times. Takács János was trying to tell the players & stop them celebrating but to no avail! Literally seconds after a press friend texted me to say he was going to win the red card sweepstake today up steps Balázs Benjamin, takes one for the team & wins Missy bmb the red card sweepstakes! Perfectly correct red for DOGSO. Cries of fix from said press friend in District IX, although one of his team was later sent off so I'd have won either way! Excellent performance from Mr Erdős - hope he left his copy of the LOTG behind open on Law 11 for my players though! We did not deserve to lose 1-2 but have no-one to blame but ourselves.

Puskás Akadémia 1-4 Mol Fehérvár - Pintér Csaba (blue shirt)

One of my small screen games & only seen the highlights. Not sure what Hegedus was bleating on about after Fehérvár's 3rd goal. He seemed to be trying to claim the ball had been taken out of his hands. He had pushed it to one side, one of his defenders made a hash of it & Nikolics said thank you very much, bosh back of the net! No problem with the goal at all - maybe he should have caught the ball instead of pushing it away! Nothing flagged up in the highlights so well done Mr Pintér.

Kaposvári Rákóczi 0-4 Mezőkövesd Zsóry - Csonka Bence (red shirt)

17 points from safety, 9 games to go. Not mathematically down but Kaposvár are down! It is all the referees fault, every single defeat, every yellow & red card so may I congratulate Csonka Bence on his 4 goals for Mezokovesd today Quite an achievement to do so while faultlessly refereeing the match as well.  Told you he was talented! On the refereeing side his positioning was excellent, decision making consistent and fair, fitness is outstanding. Hope he can keep progressing as is. Got the penalty call for goal 3 spot on, just a yellow card, no DOGSO element - there were only 3 players in the penalty area, the Mezo striker, Kaposvar defender & goalie. I like Pogacsics, their goalie, he spends 85mins per match asking his defence what the ^%^$Ł they were doing and the other 5 mins picking the ball out of the net! Hope he signs for a decent team after Kaposvar go down, would love to see him with a decent defence.

DVSC 1-0 Kisvárda Master Good - Berke Balázs (black shirt)

Moment of sheer genius/beauty from Varga Kevin won this one today. Easy for Berke to stay anonymous, he wasn't needed! Both teams were impeccably behaved.

ZTE 1-1 Ferencváros - Karakó Ferenc (black shirt)

Now don't go getting over excited or anything but Mr Karakó put in a decent performance. Today he showed why he is considered a talent & a performance like today is what we should be seeing every single week from one of our FIFA referees. 3 big calls in the game & he got them all spot on. Penalty shout for ZTE - denied. I agree. Hard one for him. Fradi defender was trying to pull his arm out of the way, ball was hit at him from close range, arm not in unnatural position to start with, no way was it deliberate, if any contact occurred and it was not conclusive if it did or not. Even on replay you can't work out if it hit his side or just caught his arm. Can support the ref's call. Would have been very harsh to give that as a pen. It did highlight one reason we are nowhere near ready for VAR - the quality of replays are terrible! 2nd penalty shout for ZTE - correctly given. Easier call, it was a foul, it was obvious! The final big call was whether a foul by Civic warranted a yellow, which was a 2nd yellow - correct to give it & the subsequent red.  Deserved draw for ZTE.

Have to add I really did feel for them today, it's their 100 year anniversary and they did this amazing countdown to 19mins 20 seconds so the clock was showing 19.20 when the fans unveiled a fantastic 100 year banner/tifo. Fradi took the lead 30 seconds later while the fans were still holding the anniversary thing up so proudly :( It felt very harsh & mean!

I am sure if ever put to him he will prefer your version to mine!

There was a moment in the game where one of the players kicked the ball in a bit of anger after it had run out of play and it rebounded off of a back wall to where Mr Solymosi was between the 6 yard box & pen area lines. He flipped it up, with his foot and kicked it out to the corner for the corner to be taken - me at the time, well with those ball skills you can see why he is a referee and not a player - today's national sports paper - Solymosi demonstrated excellent ball skills with a deft flick of the ball before kicking it out to the player waiting to take a corner! I'm his biggest fan - honest!  ;D

NBI debuts for Káprály Mihály & Hanyecz Bence this week. 29 year old Káprály Mihály from Budapest has been a regular NBII & NBII referee since 1st July 2017. He makes his debut as AAR2 to the experienced Erdős József. 27 year old Hanyecz Bence from Békés County has also been a regular NBII & NBIII referee since 1st July 2017. He makes his debut as AAR2 to Berke Balázs. Good Luck gents.

Anyone who is desperate need of a football fix (and you need to be desperate to resort to watching the NBI!!!  ;D) let me know and I will give you the completely legal links to the games.  They will all be streamed live on M4sport.hu free of charge, as they are every week.  I shall be watching from the comfort of my armchair this week despite our manager asking if I wanted to be on the approved entry list! My pre-match 'Néni loves you & is proud of you' speech can just as easily be done via Skype & often is. I did however promise him that for every shot of pálinka I pour myself, I will also pour him one and being the good friend that I am I shall drink it for him as well ;)

Blue: Mr Berke

Thank you Mr Berke for keeping the red card sweepstake going! I have already won it but every week those already knocked out have to chuck their fine into the pot until we reach the the week predicted by the last person standing (me). When that week arrives as winner it is my choice of charity that receives the contents of the pot as a donation. My prediction is we will have a red card every week this season/half season! The press boys all laughed at me & who won... I'm sure the Hungarian Children's Cancer Foundation (Gyermekrák Alapítvány Közhasznú Szervezet) will appreciate the donation. Fun way for us to do some good.

Obviously no certainty now with the current climate but VAR had been scheduled to begin trials in the NBI in November.

First off: http://focibiro.hu/cikk.php?id=10329

Video Judge Assistant: IFAB and FIFA have highlighted the challenges at Telki, without true referees and professionals.

The MLSZ presidency decided in 2019 to introduce the VAR system. The experts of the international organizations informed about the progress of the project in Hungary and drew the attention of the members of the working group to the importance of the measures, theoretical and practical training necessary for the implementation.

Specialists from the International Football Association Board (IFAB) and the International Football Association (FIFA), the highest-level rulemaking body in high-level football, have provided detailed information on the use of the video referee assistant and the associated signaling system (VOLT). practical difficulties and tasks of introduction. There is a common belief that the smooth implementation of the system requires a high level of cooperation between several professional fields.

In addition to game management, technology, television broadcasting, communication and infrastructure challenges are expected in the coming period, and the role of professional clubs is also key. Following administrative preparation, the first theoretical training is expected in May, followed by practical testing in the summer.

FIFA Fact Sheet (in English):
https://football-technology.fifa.com/en/innovations/video-assistant-referees/

In this case, we contacted the MLSZ to form the VAR working group.
Title: Re: NBI Appointments Season 19/20
Post by: bmb on Tue 17 Mar 2020 15:20
http://focibiro.hu/cikk.php?id=10340 VAR coming in November instead of summer?

NB I will have a video referee system coming in at the earliest in November, before our referees need to be trained. Márton Vági, Secretary General of the MLSZ, provided information on the preparations for the VAR, which also involves considerable efforts from club, broadcast television, technical partner and referee faculty members.

The MLSZ decided in 2019 to introduce VAR (Video Assistant Referee) in the OTP Bank League, which will also include VOL (Virtual Offside Line), which is the technology behind visualization. However, goal line technology will not be used in our country due to its high cost.

Of the six operators' quotes, MLSZ has accepted Evertz Microsystems, which means the Canadian company provides the video judge system and the necessary technical background. Evertz is present in, among other things, the Belgian Championships and major American sports. Given the huge amount of theoretical and practical training and sophisticated infrastructure development and technical investment needed before the introduction of VAR, a video judge in NB I matches will be available in November of this year at the earliest and at the start of the 2021/22 championship at the latest. This is also a major challenge for the rights-holder television channel, which will have to broadcast 12 leading cameras with leading-edge meetings in Hungary.

VAR HAS THREE FORMS OF OPERATION IN EUROPE AND WORLDWIDE. Centralized, WHICH MEANS THAT ONE CENTRAL premises monitors all match, a decentralized, ie all stadiums KIÉPÍTENEK A SEPARATE ROOM FOR THIS PURPOSE, OR - BY WITH US IS USED WILL - mobile devices BUILT techniques used, THIS PRACTICE ONE EQUIPPED WITH BUSES REPORTING THAT STAYS TO THE STADIANS. MLSZ DECIDED ON COST-EFFECTIVENESS.

It is planned that four buses will be able to broadcast the six NB I matches per turn, but this will require a change in current practice, meaning that there should be no five matches at a time and the start time of the matches should be "delayed".

The MLS decided to implement the VAR system in agreement with cutting-edge clubs. THIS IS ALSO IMPORTANT BECAUSE THE COSTS OF OPERATING THE SYSTEM ARE FINANCED BY THE ASSOCIATIONS, WHICH CAN INCREASE UP TO 20 MILLION FORINTS PER TEAM. (About Ł53,000 - average wage in Hungary is about Ł7,000/7,500 for comparison purposes)

The next important task will be the training of the referees. The MLSZ plans to train more than 40 professionals. With the introduction of a video referee system, there will be no need for baseline referees, but the VAR buses will have a video referee, a video assistant and an operator who can handle the technique perfectly. Referee training will begin in the spring with a theoretical section, after which referees will be able to practice on simulators, first off-line in technically-equipped buses, and live-tested in match-up and amateur matches. The introduction of VAR is also important because UEFA will only trust prestigious international matches to those who regularly meet the video referee system in their championship.

I'll put this here in my NBI thread as I doubt there is much interest outside of myself & Tünde, although JCFC might enjoy it.

In our Magyar Foci family we have a guy Gergely Marosi. He is our walking encyclopaedia on Hungarian football, National team right down to county level. I am in awe of him! If I had even a millionth of his knowledge I'd be well educated! Today we were chatting about how and why we all became NBI fans (particularly those of us who are not Hungarian by birth or descent). One of our lads, who is from Brazil asked: "Do you know any MTK fans? I would like to understand why the club has many titles and at the same time, it has a very low number of fans."

Gergely treated us to a little history on MTK Budapest. Magyar Testgyakorlók Köre Budapest Futball Club (Hungarian Practitioners Circle Budapest Football Club) based in Józsefváros (District VIII in Budapest).

MTK - as its name shows - is the traditional club of the assimilated Jewish population, identifying themselves as Hungarians. There was a Zionist club called VAC (which is not Vác). In 1922 there was a huge fight at the MTK-VAC game, dubbed "the battle of Yom Kippur". The two teams and the crowd had a free-for-all mass brawl. The last 30 mins were finished days later, behind closed doors. Epic stuff. Fans were watching from the elevated tram tracks next to the MTK stadium. MTK, under legendary president Alfréd Brüll, was a very popular club. Not as popular as Ferencváros, but they played top quality football and drew big crowds between WWI and WWII. They were big, attractive and successful. Then WWII came, obviously decimating the fanbase. MTK was forced to stop activity in 1942, re-organised after WW II. ÁVH (the state security) took over the club and changed its colours from blue & white to red & white! So MTK became Bástya. Then it was aligned to the textile industry, becoming Textiles and then Bp. Vörös Lobogó. In 1956 the club could finally revert to MTK and blue & white. From the 1960s to 1987 the club was not successful at all (even got relegated once), so probably less and less people chose them as a team because of the lack of success.  So it's a combination of a decimated fanbase in WWII and about 25 unsuccessful years, while Újpest, FTC, Honvéd, Vasas were all successful. Hard to bounce back. Pity, because MTK is still one of the teams that has a distinctive club style since Jimmy Hogan. MTK traditionally plays short-passing, rather intelligent and attractive, technical football. When they had coaches preferring "Route one" approach, the fans did not like that all, as they thought it's not aligning to club values!

A bit about MTK.

They are one of the most successful Hungarian football clubs, MTK has won the Hungarian League 23 times and the Hungarian Cup 12 times. The club has also won the Hungarian Super Cup 2 times. In 1955, as Vörös Lobogó SE, they became the first Hungarian team to play in the European Cup and in 1964 they finished as runners-up in the European Cup Winners' Cup after losing to Sporting Clube de Portugal in the final. The club founded the Sándor Károly Football Academy in 2001. The Academy also has a partnership agreement with English club Liverpool F.C.  MTK Budapest first entered the Nemzeti Bajnokság in the 1903 season. In the subsequent season, MTK won their first domestic title. Between 1913 and 1914 and 1924–25 MTK dominated Hungarian football by winning ten titles in a row.  They play at the Hidegkuti Nándor Stadion which looks like a prison yard! There is only seating down each side, none behind either goal. Named after Hidegkuti Nándor one of the great players in the 50's who was in the Mighty Magyars team along with Puskás Ferenc.

The fixture between MTK Budapest FC and Ferencvárosi TC is called the Örökrangadó or Eternal derby. The first fixture was played in the 1903 Nemzeti Bajnokság I season. It is the oldest football rivalry in Hungary. The rivalry between Ferencvárosi TC and MTK Budapest is also one of the most tense fixtures in the Hungarian League. Because the two clubs came from neighbouring districts of Budapest, the tension is even higher. The tension between the two clubs is based on racism. MTK Budapest FC is considered a Jewish club since many Jewish figures appeared in the club between the 1930s and the 1940s while Ferencvárosi TC is associated with far-right politics. Between 1903 and 1929 the two clubs won 24 Hungarian League titles (13 MTK and 11 Ferencváros) out of 24, therefore their match was considered as the final of the championship. Traditionally the Ferencváros - MTK rivalry was the most prestigious fixture but this has since been replaced by Ferencváros - Újpest. The rivalry started in the 1930s when Újpest won their first Hungarian League title. The ground is packed to the rafters, travel is a nightmare as supporters of each club are designated very specific metro & bus routes to keep them apart. Rendőrség (police) everywhere - for those old enough to remember hooliganism in the 1980's this is a flashback to that!! It is brutal. There are pyro contests within the ground with amazing co-ordinated displays!


Vörös Lobogó translates to red flag which was an indication of the ÁVH (Államvédelmi Hatóság)/ÁVO (Államvédelmi Osztálya) alignment with the USSR during the long occupation of Hungary. The ÁVH were rebranded as the ÁVO around 1949/50, they were the hated & feared State Secret police (Hungary's version of the KGB). They were loyal to Moscow not the Hungarian people. It is widely reported that the first shots fired during the Hungarian revolution of 1956 were fired by them, it turned a peaceful demonstration into a bloodbath that saw many lives lost. They were disbanded immediately after the revolution & their old headquarters is now a museum called A Terror Háza Múzeum - the House of Terror.

Thoroughly enjoyable hour or so watching Hungary beat Norway 1-0 away from home & a superb team ref performance from Clatts! Simon Beck & Jake Collin were AR's & Craig Pawson & Jon Moss were AAR's. Reminded me though I still haven't quite forgiven Clatts for booking Gera, correct decision or not!! ;)

Székesfehérvár, Mol Aréna Sóstó
Referee: Vad II. István - Yellow shirt

AAR: Karakó Ferenc, Bogár Gergő

A little note for Mr Puhl, it doesn't matter how often you put Tóth II. with Vad II. (last however many games it is now...), it is not going to turn him into a decent referee by doing so. His decision making remains random and inconsistent and after all these years of not improving he probably never will. Please accept he has never and will never be our top referee, he barely makes the top 10. Tóth would be far better utilised with being put regularly with one of our promising youngsters, Berke, Bogár, Csonka or Pillók. It would be good for them to have our top AR with them.

I will say now, I have a bad feeling that this will be a very 1 sided match & Fradi will easily turn their 1 game in hand into 3 points! :(

Went far better than I thought - we lost 1-0, great goal from Boli but we did put in a decent performance! Could have scored 3, twice the scoring boots went awol and the 3rd decent effort was a good block by Dibz, Fradi's goalie before being cleared off the line. Fradi could have also scored a couple more but Pajovic actually did some goalkeeping today which was a miracle in itself! He made one awesome save - still in shock!

As for the black clad Mr Berke. Not the hardest of games for him, both sets of players behaved themselves. Minimal play acting (it was the Budapest derby so there would always be some) and dissent was missing, that was nice! 2 key match incidents, one he got wrong and 1 right.  The wrong one, Onovo trod on Zubkov and it should have been a penalty to Fradi. Not only did he not give them the penalty but he added insult to injury by booking Zubkov for diving - I suspect he will be very disappointed with that one when he watches it back. Didn't affect the overall result in the end as Lilák couldn't score if they were the only team on the pitch right now but it was a bad call.  I suspect he was unsighted and couldn't see Onovo standing on Zubkov, from the top half of them there was nothing in the challenge, it's only when you see their feet that you can see it & I don't think he could see their feet to be fair to him.  The other one was the YYR for Burekovic. My only comment is Burekovic is a blimmin idiot. 1-0 down, in time added on, on the attack & all he has to do is put the ball in the box so what does he do? He tries instead to launch Lovrencsics into row z, earns himself a 2nd yellow, quite rightly, gives away a stupid, stupid, stupid free kick, hands possession back to opposition right on the edge of their penalty area in the dying seconds and did I mention yet is a blimmin idiot!!! A 7.9 for Mr Berke, that would have been an 8.3 without the wrong penalty call.

Whilst I am happy to have #SolymosiWatch, I am disappointed he doesn't have a middle. I was hoping he would get a game this week and then the emotion derby next weekend which would have meant his 300th game would have been that one. It had better his 299th NBI game instead then, red shirt, red whistle! You're not in my good books Mr Puhl!

Yellow to referee my team  >:( He could have worn blue or red... 1st time I have ever seen Mr Erdős in yellow and the poor man looked utterly traumatised by the whole experience. Shame on you Mr Bognár.  :o

Mr beautiful resigned as manager of Lilák on Saturday evening. It has been accepted this time (it was refused 2 months ago), so he and his team, including me, have now officially left the club. We're taking a break before we decide which new pastures to head to. Lilák will always remain my team and Néni's boys will remain Néni's boys but they are no longer MY team!

#SolymosiWatch was in black, Andó-Sabó in yellow again & Mr Pillók in blue.

Pretty much a masterclass from Mr Pillók, played 1 advantage to Lilák that should have been a free kick to Kispest. Not a game changer but the only thing he got wrong. Vital 3 points for my Lilák.

4 cracking goals in the first 2 games and a real fantastic derby to round off the night.

What a treat it was!

Mr Vad caused carnage, was inconsistent but hey he wore red!  First incident, player offside, AR flagged, he ignored it, goalkeeper leapt up for the ball, collided with 2 players who banged heads with each other as a result and went down, he allowed play to carry on still.  It was well over 30 seconds before he finally stopped play and gave the free kick for the offside which was now about 1 minute previously.  He sent the 2 players off the pitch after they had received treatment (one from each side). 4th official gave a clear indication to the lad from ZTE that he could go back on the pitch, he did so and caught up with play, as soon as he did so and touched the ball Vad booked him for entering the field without his permission.  Caused absolute uproar with every single player and the benches. Don't know whether it was his fault or the 4O fault but the 4O had clearly sent the lad back on & he should not have been booked for match official error. Vad lost any respect for the rest of the game from both sets of players.

Mr Karakó (in black) on the other hand had a fairly decent game. Few little incidents where interactions between him and players were a bit tetchy, he does not have their respect and it shows. His decision making was fine though and he was pretty consistent.

Huge 6 pointer between Újpest v DVSC. Loki are currently in the other relegation spot. There are 9 points between DVTK in 4th and Debrece in 11th, 18 still to play for so technically anyone from 4th down to 11th could be relegated still. Kisvarda are in 7th with 3 points more so the 2nd spot is more likely to go to them or one of the teams below them - ZTE (same points as Kisvarda), Újpest or Paks, both of whom only have 1 more point than Loki.  Pleased with Berke for the game, he is very strong & consistent with his application of the LOTG.

To add.

1st place earns a Champions League qualifying place.

2nd & 3rd place each earn a Europa League qualify place.

Magyar Kupa win earns the 3rd Europa League qualifying place. *Unless the cup winners also finish in the top 3, the 3rd Europa league qualifying spot would then go to whoever finishes in 4th. Not relevant this season as Budapest Honvéd have won the Magyar Kupa and are highly unlikely to finish in the top 3.

11th & 12th are both relegated to the NBII.

Mr Erdős & Mr Bognár (on his 200th NBI game) both in blue.

Looked like a key match error from Mr Erdős - ZTE player clearly had his legs taken from under him in the box, should have been a penalty but he gave a free kick to DVTK & booked the ZTE lad. Shame because he has been refereeing well this season. Hope it doesn't dent his confidence.  Game ended 1-1 with DVTK having been expected to win.

In the important game the lovely Mr Solymosi wore red & had his matching red whistle! Happy bmb!

Vad in blue this evening and has put in a competent performance so far. 5 mins to go.

The game was temporarily suspended due to an epic thunder storm - he was very very quick to get the teams off of the pitch, it was an absolute beauty of a storm! Once the lightning passed he brought them back out - he looked like a drowned rat by the time he reached the byline from the tunnel.  Has refereed sensibly since and made some allowance for a very wet and slippery pitch.

More competent performances like this please Mr Vad

Very disappointingly no response to my email to the Federation regarding the welfare of referees in terms of rehydration during matches. Measures have been put in place for players with the mandatory drinks breaks but no such measures for match officials.  It was 29°c in Budapest on Saturday, all of the players were given rehydration around the halfway mark in each half. Nothing for Mr Pintér as referee in the game during the hottest spell, nor for his 2 AAR's who were standing directly in the sun during that heat. Mr Pintér was absolutely dripping in sweat, goodness knows how much hydration he lost but I was seriously concerned for his well being more than once during the game due to it. Having had a referee die during fitness tests the summer before last due to this very issue I would have thought our Federation would be more on the ball with this - seems not though & lessons have clearly not been learned. Shame on you MLSZ, I thought you better than this.

I have since had a response basically saying that the referees are adults and can choose to rehydrate if they wish and the 4th official can bring out water for them from the dressing room.  That's fair enough but it's not happening & that is concerning especially in the heat like we had at the weekend. Also this may well help the referee but the 2 AARs are not allowed to leave their position behind the goals, as far as I know, so how would they get access to the water? They also say they cannot make it obligatory, yet have done just that for the players so I can't understand the difference. Maybe UEFA need to issue a directive for it to happen. Respect to the JB for taking the time to respond and explain their position though.

Congratulations/Gratulálok to Fradi for officially winning the title tonight.

Top place sorted/bottom place sorted just places 2-11 to decide now!

Vid *should* take 2nd place, they are 10 points clear of 3rd but are not playing well so who knows! They play Debrecen tomorrow who need a win to pull clear of the 2nd relegation spot.

3rd place (and the final EL spot) could still be taken by anyone from 3rd to 6th (Mezokovesd, Felcsút, DVTK or Honvéd) in table realistically but as low as 9th in the table mathematically! I'm hoping Mezokovesd can hang on in there, they deserve it across the season. I need them to lose tomorrow though because my Lilák need a win! If DVTK could beat Felcsút as well please or at least that game end in a draw!

Anyone from 7th - 11th realistically (ZTE, Újpest, Kisvarda, Paks or Debrecen VSC) can still be the 2nd team to be relegated but mathematically the teams in 4th - 6th could go down still depending on results! 4 more games to play still this round & all of them big at one end of the table or another! Of those more likely I would prefer it to be Paks or Kisvarda relegated. For the one and only time it will happen - I would like a Kaposvár win tomorrow! It will help my Lilák!

Exciting evening of football ahead tomorrow.

Post by: bmb on Wed 17 Jun 2020 22:38
Phew what an evening!

Vidi have now secured 2nd place and a spot in the Europa League qualifiers next season with a 1-0 win over Debrecen.

3rd spot and the final Europa spot is still wide open - Mezokovesd in 3rd drew with my Lilák, Felcsút in 4th now have the same number of points (47) after beating DVTK. DVTK are 5th on 41 points, Honvéd 6th also on 41 points. Any of them can still take 3rd depending on results.

ZTE are 7th on 39 points - mathematically they could still finish 3rd but would need to win their last 3 and have the 4 above mentioned teams lose all 3, which is not going to happen - even in the NBI!  They could also still be relegated mathematically, if they lose all 3 games left & everyone below them wins their last 3 - again not going to happen! They should be safe now.

The draw (the equaliser from super sub Koszta with 30 seconds of TAO to go) sees my Lilák move into 8th place on 37 points. Paks beat Kaposvár (no surprise) and are now 9th also on 37 points. Neither are fully safe from relegation yet.

Kisvárda are 10th on 35 points and Debrecen in 11th in the final relegation spot on 32 points. It doesn't look good for Loki :( I'd rather of the 2 Kisvárda go down, I don't like their manager for a start and Loki are one of the big teams, it would be a big loss to the NBI if they go down.

Can I just re-mention good riddance to Kaposvár - refs fault they lost tonight due to his 2 perfectly correct penalty decisions! One was for handball and yes it was harsh but it was correct within the LOTG, stick your elbow out and you're going to have a penalty against you. The 2nd was for a foul. Maybe try teaching your players the LOTG and to not foul the opposition eh... Can't wait to see them gone. Horrible, horrible little club who have bought absolutely nothing to the league all season!

Shirt wise it was not a good night - I am not happy with you Mr Puhl - be warned! #SolymosiWatch was in black, he could however have worn my favoured red but as I love the black kit, I am not overly bothered.  Vad & Karakó both in yellow - like I need yet another reason to not like them! Pintér wore blue. He had a steady game.

I have however noticed with great disappointment that respect has gone right out of the window under the new coach. When Nebojša was there the players were fined for any dissent & instructed quite clearly ahead of kick off that they were to show the referee respect even if they disagreed with a decision. The last 2 games in particular they have been dreadful for dissent. Perosevic tonight, wraps his arm around another players throat from behind and hauls him to the floor, as clear of a yellow card offence are you going to see. He then spent 30 seconds yelling at Mr Pintér for quite correctly issuing the yellow card, I was almost disappointed he didn't immediately get a 2nd yellow for dissent, but with my team still 1-0 down at the time it would have cost us the game. Lucky for him Mr Pintér has more tolerance than me! Might check if I can still access the computer and issue him with a fine! Haha!

Edited to add it appears that Boli was send off for debrecen after the final whistle. No-one seems to know why and it does not appear in any match reports in the sports press or of the Federations official site at this stage! M4 noticed a small glimpse of Vad showing him a red - literally about 1 second of footage. He had been given a yellow which he was unhappy with so my assumption is that he then received a 2nd yellow for dissent but whatever it was all happened off camera. Guess we will find out when the disciplinary committee meet tomorrow! The manager didn't have a clue what had happened he mentioned the yellow card but had no idea as to how or why the red had been shown. 2 Red cards tonight - both by yellow shirted wearing referees...

Roll on another 3 days of NBI on Friday, Saturday & Sunday! Be nice Mr Puhl!

Eredmenyek has it as a straight red. Seems he wasn't booked. Loki were on the attack, a rarity in itself. He decided he had been fouled and instead of crossing the ball so his team mates could take a pot on goal he decided to stop and argue with the referee instead.  Must have been really something he said to Vad for it to have been a straight red.

Surprised, but pleased the biggie of the round goes to Mr Bogár. Fine young referee and my tip for our future elite ref. Going to be a cracking derby. No crowd restrictions in place so potentially a full house of ultras, a pyro display to rival guy fawkes night. The home team on a high after deservedly winning the championship, the away team fighting to pull away from the relegation zone and both fiercely hated rivals on a good day! Hajrá Lilák!!!

ZTE confirmed their status in the NBI for next season with a fine 2-0 win tonight over Kispest.  Was a cracker of a game. Couple of excellent advantages from the red clad Mr Pintér who had a decent game.  One sprint from him in the first half was a sight to see - long ball punted up field to the very nippy Radó & Mr Pintér would have given Bolt a run for his money the way he zoomed up the pitch & caught up! Impressive!

Roll on tomorrow! Hoping for Mezőkövesd win, Paks defeat & for Lilák to spoil the champions party at Fradi with a win! Not sure the last one is a real possibility but hey ho! Hajrá Lilák!

Mr Karakó continuing his excellent season with another key match error. Garai was so far behind play for Vidi's goal I thought he'd gone in for his break early, time he caught up the ball was in the back of the net from the 4 feet offside Vidi player.  YYR card as well, only seen the 2nd yellow which was correct but another game with Mr Karakó and a key match error. How is he still an NBI referee let alone a FIFA one?
Title: Re: NBI Appointments Season 19/20
Post by: bmb on Sun 21 Jun 2020 22:43
Another completely bonkers evening in the NBI!

3rd spot is now between Mezokovesd and Felcsút who are currently 3rd & 4th respectively on 50 points apiece. Their midweek games are against sides still battling it out in the relegation spots. Mezo play Loki (Debrecen) in 11th spot & still the most vulnerable, Felcsút play Kisvárda who are in 8th spot & 3 points clear of Decrecen.  Kisvárda beat Kaposvár 2-1 today, as expected. Loki however showed they have some fight left and unexpectedly beat DVTK 4-0!  Mathematically DVTK (6th - 41 points) & Honvéd (7th 41 points) could still be the 2nd team to go down, they'd have to lose both of their last games though & everyone below them win their last 2. It is highly unlikely that it can or will come to that in reality - far too many variables. Kisvárda are 8th on 38 points, Újpest 9th on 37 points, Paks 10th on 37 points & Debrecen in 11th on 35 points. The midweek games just got huge!

Tues:
Vidi v Fradi - no longer important in any way it's 2nd v 1st and just points/pride to play for
Újpest v ZTE - ZTE secured their safety this weekend, my Lilák need to win this one to take the relegation battle to the last weekend

Weds:
Mezovovesd v DVSC - Mezo need to win to try and take 3rd & the last EL spot, Debrecen need to win & take the relegation battle to the last games at the weekend
Honvéd v Kaposvár - A win for Honvéd secures their safety mathematically, Kaposvár already down
Kisvarda v Felcsút - Kisvarda need a win to take the relegation battle to the last weekend, Felcsút need to win to try & take 3rd spot & the last EL spot
Paks v DVTK - Paks need a win to take the relegation battle to the last weekend, a win for DVTK secures their safety mathematically.

Just for completeness the final games at the weekend: Kick off times not decided yet - normally though all games kick off the same time if there are things to be decided still on the last day - the * is partially/largely dependent upon midweek results
Fradi v Mezokovesd *could affect 3rd spot & the last EL spot
DVTK v Kisvarda *could affect relegation
Felcsút v Honvéd *could affect 3rd spot & the last EL spot
Újpest v Kapsvár *could affect relegation
ZTE v Vidi - only game that won't affect any outcome aside of the exact final place for ZTE
Debrecen v Paks *could affect relegation

If 2 teams end up on the same number of points the position is decided in this order:
1. number of wins
2. goal difference
3. goals scored
4. points gathered against each other
5. goal difference against each other
6. away goals against each other
7. better fair play position in the league
8. random draw

Onto this weekends refereeing!

Mr Bogár had an absolutely fantastic game in the big Budapest derby. Excellent and very assured performance from one of our young hopefuls. He most definitely repaid Mr Puhl's faith in him to handle the match & it was a delight to see. Fradi won 1-0,  a deserved victory, they were the better side. All 3 teams played their part in making it a fantastic derby match to watch, even for those of us on the losing side!!

Csaba Pinter & Balázs Berke both put in decent performances in their respective games. Nothing really of note to mention in either match.

I've mentioned Karakó above & there was no improvement on that 2nd half.

Today's games.

Easy game for Mr Farkas, it was so one sided! I do have a bet on how Kaposvár will dress up the howler by their keeper, who came bombing out of the area and weakly headed the ball into the path of a striker who said thank you very much and helped it into the net! My bet is they will moan that 2 players were offside (they were in offside positions when the long ball was played), the ball sailed around 10/15 feet ahead of them when the keeper did his weak header right into the path of one of them to score. No offside but this is Kaposvár & they never take responsibility! My biggest complaint is that #SolymosiWatch, whist in black did not include very much Solymosi! Kaposvár only ventured into the half he was in, where they were attacking in the 2nd half, once or maybe twice. He & the Kisvárda keeper could have snuck off for a pint & no-one would have noticed their absence!

Mr Bognár showed why he is our top referee in the Debrecen v DVTK game. A few incidents in this one that he handled with calmness, common sense and a quiet authority.  Of the incidents there was a bit of brattiness brewing between Kiss of DVTK & Szátmari of Loki, they're both only 18/19 & were behaving a bit like children. They had a bit of a run in, no foul but niggling each other a bit, Szátmari turned, Kiss was behind him and he knocked Kiss over. Purely accidental, he'd spun to go up field and Kiss was right up his butt as he found when he spun round.Kiss made a bit of a meal of it, Szátmari didn't react to that well and when Kiss stood up pushed him over & then did it again when he stood up the 2nd time.  Szátmari was rightly booked, it was petulant and childish.  Literally within a couple of minutes there was an attack on the Loki goal, Kosickly (Loki's goalie) went to ground holding the ball, at that point no player had a right to go for it, Kiss decided instead to kick Kolsicky around the shoulder/chest area. Petulant, brattish and very poor form. Kolsicky jumped up and literally got hold of Kiss by the throat, and lifted him off the pitch. Kiss looked like he absolutely bricked himself, he was petrified! Hopefully it will have taught him to not deliberately kick a goalkeeper who is on the floor with the ball pulled into him again in the future!!! Kolsicky was lucky not to see red. Bognár took the time to speak to the players and his AAR to establish exactly what had happened and in particular Kolsicky - he's not an aggressive player and it was an extreme out of character reaction from him. Having spoken to them all he booked Kiss for the kick, quite rightly. My only disagreement is that whilst he managed the situation very well & used man management to calm things down again I do think Kolsicky should also have seen a yellow. I can understand his reaction but grabbing a brat around the throat is not really the way to deal with it! Loki were 3-0 up at that point and it wasn't too long after he correctly awarded them a penalty and it became 4-0. Most importantly he wore black!

Well I am furious right now and no not with Vad - the game only kicked off 1 minute ago! he is in red, Mr Berke wore blue.

My fury is with Fradi, well their fans who were stood there 'proudly' displaying the aryan greens flag all game... Shame on Vidi as well for not removing it. Complaints submitted to UEFA, the MLSZ & both clubs. Angry bmb is angry!!

Fair play to the Fradi supporter refereeing our game though, apart from his mere presence he's not done anything wrong in the first 12 mins!

And yes it did take me 11 mins to write that LOL

Reasonable first 75 mins for Vad but the last 15... In the Vidi v Fradi game, Berke gave a penalty for handball, for me it should never have been a penalty but under the current LOTG it was a correct decision and it is the LOTG that are wrong. Virtually identical situation in the Újpest v ZTE game and Vad did not give it. I could let that one go because I think the LOTG are wrong but his decision was not correct within the LOTG. 2nd penalty shout for Újpest with a clear shove in the back, everyone but Vad saw it! On 3 occasions he fell for play acting on ZTE's part, I have a bigger problem with the players conduct than him falling for it but he also booked Soma for a push where there was literally zero contact.  Got in the way on a couple of occasions as well, which is unlike him actually. Free kick in the dying seconds, I thought harsh but on replay the ZTE player had kicked Obinna's foot and didn't play the ball at all so that was an excellent spot in real time. Lilák scored the winner - Ristevski finally doing something other than giving away stupid fouls or getting himself booked for being an idiot! I wonder whether the clear shove in Soma's back would have been given as a penalty (it was another very clear one) had Ristevski not scored?! Excellent non offside call from Becséri in the same very quick passage of play as well.

Vital win for my team so no sour grapes regarding the decisions. If Paks lose tomorrow, or Debrecen lose or draw tomorrow then my boys are safe before the final game!

When McWoods scored for ZTE, he took the knee with some of his team mates. We have a bet going now as to whether he will be fined for it while the Federation ignore the Aryan greens flag from the Fradi fans. Do not let us down MLSZ - act quickly and decisively!

Every time I think this league can not get anymore bonkers, it gets even more bonkers!  The results have made a complete mockery of the predictions league , don't think any of us have got any points again this round! LOL

1st up tonight was Mezokovesd 0-1 Debrecen. This takes both the fight for 3rd spot and the relegation battle to the last game.  It did look for a long while that it was going to be a game of who could have the most goals disallowed!! Mezokovesd had 2 disallowed one for a foul on the keeper and one correctly for offside. The first I am torn, I think keepers get too much protection as it is but then he did knock him flying as they both went for the ball. No way could it be called an incorrect decision though. Loki also had 1 correctly disallowed for offside.  Both of them fell foul of Mr Tóth's flag - 2 huge and correct calls from probably our top AR now Mr Ring has retired. Well done Mr Tóth, a masterclass from him. Kuttor was having an absolutely disgusting rant on the TV post match about the referee costing them the game & Europe. No your team cost you the game when they let in a goal & didn't score more than the other team. Vile creature. Hope he spends the last game sat at home watching on TV because he has a touchline ban...

Then the double header. Kisvarda 1-1 Felcsút on the top screen. Well #SolymosiWatch in red... It's going to take priority! Sadly Felcsút equalised right at the end :( Kisvarda had a pen shout disallowed, not entirely convinced that Mr Pintér was right, there was a bit of shoving & pushing each way and Viana went down like a sniper had got him, which is why I think Mr Pintér deemed it a coming together and no penalty. I think there was probably enough for one to be given but will add that is with the benefit of replays which Mr Pinter did not have. Bodog, the manager went mental & highlight of the match was seeing him get a yellow, have never forgiven his conduct towards the lovely Mr Solymosi about 3/4 seasons ago! Kisvarda did also have a correct penalty given to them, which was saved. They scored soon after.

I will mention here that the 4th official had water for team ref during the drinks breaks! Thank you Mr Puhl for giving them a reminder. Neither of the AARs had any but they were both in shade. It was reassuring to see it available.

In the bottom screen was Kispest 4-2 Kaposvar. Looked to be a decent debut for Mr Antal.  He did get in the way of play 2/3 times quite badly but his decision making was decent enough. He has a lovely manner about him, calm and relaxed and a lovely big smile on his face. Several incidents where he was seen sharing a few words and a smile with players, they liked him and responded to him well. Needs to adjust his positioning a bit, the NBI is a bit faster than the NBII but he was decent overall. Well done Mr Antal. Nice to see Mr Erdős back and clad in blue behind the goal line! Kispest are now safe and Kaposvár are down - yes!!! I may have mentioned once or twice that I can't wait to see the back of them! Their 2 delightful coaches were not happy with the ref but then Missy bmb is more likely to ask Mr Puhl to put the lovely Mr Solymosi in yellow every game next season than they are to take responsibility for their lack of tactics & we all know the former will never happen!

Final game of the round was Paks 4-2 DVTK. Where has this Paks come from? Absolute cracker of a game and another very assured performance from young Mr Bogár. DVTK confirmed safe tonight despite losing!

So to Saturday!



Another bonkers day to look forward to!

It has also crossed Missy bmb's mind that this Saturday could see the retirement of the lovely Mr Solymosi. I am desperately hoping that is not the case. Please Mr Puhl talk him into 1 more season. He is still one of the best performers week in/week out, he's too good to lose whilst he is still fit enough to carry on & he has shown that he is.

ZTE v Mol Fehérvár
2020.06.27 – 15:15
Zalaegerszeg, Zalaegerszegi Városi Stadion (ZTE Aréna)
Referee: Káprály Mihály
4O: Szalai Balázs
AR: Tóth II. Vencel, Szécsényi István
AAR: Németh Ádám, Takács János

NBI debut for 29 year old Káprály Mihály from Budapest. Mr Káprály has done 5 games as AAR in the NBI and now makes his debut as referee. He has been registered with the MLSZ JB since 2017-07-01. Good Luck Mr Káprály. He has a decent & experienced team with him. Good game for a debut as there is nothing riding on it. I do remember being impressed with him in a Magyar Kupa match earlier in the season so look forward to seeing him deut in the NBI.

Debrecen, Debreceni Nagyerdei Stadion
Referee: Berke Balázs
4O: Csatári Tibor
AR: Buzás Balázs, Georgiou Theodoros
AAR: Farkas Ádám, Pintér Csaba

Berke Balázs with the big big game of the weekend. Excellent choice. His knowledge and application of the LOTG is fantastic, fair, honest and consistent with both teams. It's a game where a strong referee will be needed. Very sensible appointing.

Ferencváros v Mezőkövesd Zsóry
2020.06.27 – 20:00
Budapest, Groupama Aréna
Referee: Erdős József
4O: Szalai Dániel
AR: Szert Balázs, Lémon Oszkár
AAR: Solymosi Péter, Antal Péter

Sensible team out on this one. Calm and experienced.  Szalai Dániel is obviously on the naughty step though as he has the pleasure of the lovely (!) Kuttor to contend with for 90 mins.  Hope someone gives him some ear defenders and there is a large packet of paracetamol sat waiting for him in the dressing room post match to aid that headache he is going to get...

Puskás Akadémia v Budapest Honvéd
2020.06.27 – 20:00
Felcsút, Puskás Akadémia Pancho Aréna
Referee: Iványi Zoltán
4O: Huszár Balázs
AR: Vígh-Tarsonyi Gergő, Bornemissza Norbert
AAR: Pillók Ádám, Szilágyi Sándor

Mr Iványi a very good choice for this game as well. Wise old head who has a great rapport with players and whose man management is second to none. The game is in danger of boiling over if Felcsút are not getting their own way with the final European place at stake and he is a great choice to help keep it that bit calmer.


I don't like Mezokvesd's manager, I think he is vile but I do want his team to win and Felcsút to lose - them taking the last European spot is far more of a palatable option than Felcsút taking it...

In terms of relegation - Hajrá Lilák. Hajrá Loki.  Don't care which of Kisvárda or Paks go down but please dear God of football let it be one of those 2! Paks will see me get a 30 point bonus in the Prediction league, Kisvárda - well it would be worth it to see the smile wiped off of Bodog's face - another vile little man! He still owes the lovely Mr Solymosi an apology!

In terms of the lovely Mr Solymosi disappointed that he is AAR again but I am also taking it as a good sign that he will be back in August. There is absolutely no way that Mr Puhl would not appoint him a middle if he was going to be retiring this week. That's not Mr Puhl's style. He will always give any retiring referee a farewell match. If nothing else he will be back for at least one game in August as his retirement match! That gives me hope that Mr Puhl is working his magic and he will be staying on for another season! If he does then a thank you bottle of pálinka will be winging it Mr Puhl's way! ;)

Utterly bonkers!

ZTE 1-1 MOL Fehérvár
Superb debut from Mr Káprály apart from the yellow shirt of course - fantastic advantage in build up to the Vidi goal; correct booking on Mitrovic for a foul but Mitrovic went right up in his face could easily have been a 2nd booking for dissent. 3/4 other good advantages. Pen shout refused after mitrovic kicked ball against defenders arm - correct call for me, seen them given but I rarely agree when they are!! 2nd pen shout also correct - no contact. Fantastic advantage in lead up to ZTE goal. That was scored literally from the halfway line - goal of the season! (https://twitter.com/TomaszMortimer/status/1276894074197467136) Also correctly disallowed a goal for Niko of Vidi for being offside. He can be very happy with how that game went. 2 advantages that directly led to goals, 3 key incidents in the pen shouts & disallowed goal, all correct. Well done Mr Káprály

He had drink in both drinks breaks, which was great to see. His spare whistle is metal - you don't see that often!

The relegation games - bear in mind bmb was a complete emotional wreck during these games.

DVTK 0-2 Kisvarda
Vad II. István - blue shirt
Don't know what it is about lightning and Mr Vad but it seems to follow him around! 2 huge flashes right by the stadium around the 36 min mark saw him take the players off very very quickly. He quite rightly took no chances. They came back out around 10 mins later. Other than an incorrectly given offside Kisvarda goal there was nothing else of note! Lightning striking the ground by the stadium and a key match error - normal day at the office for him!

Újpest 5-0 Kaposvár
Csonka Bence - blue shirt
Even at 5-0 up bmb still believed Lilák would throw the game away and lose 12-5 to send us down! We didn't though! Mr Csonka was on the pitch somewhere but the game was that one sided I think he was having a snooze for most of it! He wasn't needed. Probably one of the easiest games he will ever referee. Soha ne add fel!! Good riddance Kaposvár, please do not visit again anytime soon.

Debrecen 1-1 Paks
Berke Balázs - black shirt.
Assured performance from Mr Berke in the big game of the day. Absolutely bonkers at the end - Loki had one cleared off the line, hit the post and had one clear the keeper, hit the crossbar and bounce back down onto the line. Had any of those gone in their despair would have turned to joy but it wasn't to be and sadly we now lose Loki to the NBII next season.  :'(

Disgusting scenes at the end of this one as the Loki ultras invaded the pitch and were tussling with their players. Team ref had left the pitch and were safe but the ultras were not after them anyway. The vile cowardly scum soon ran when the rendőrség appeared. Not what you want to see. I'll bet none of those concerned have been there for ages either, they were there just for trouble.  >:(

None of the refs had drinks available with the 4O, despite it being 29+. Concerning & has been noted by UEFA so hopefully this will be addressed before the season is back in August.

The battle for 3rd

Fradi 1-0 Mezokovesd
Erdős József - black shirt.  Nowhere near enough Solymosi for bmb's #SolymosiWatch today! At least it was in black!!
Decent game from Mr Erdős. Fradi were not going to roll over and let their 54 match unbeaten home run go. Deserved victory for them, they barely got out of 1st gear. Disappointed Mezokovesd didn't finish 3rd, they deserved it across the season but I am also please their horrible manager Mr Kuttor wasn't rewarded with it either.

4O had water available for team ref in this one.

Felcsút 2-1 Honvéd
Iványi Zoltán - yellow shirt. Bad Mr Iványi - pension him off instead of the lovely Mr Solymosi please!
Typical performance from him, calm, relaxed and no fuss. Normally I will support every Hungarian team in Europe because they are representing the country but I will very churlishly refuse to do so in Felcsúts case. Sickening.

No water available for team ref in this one & it was still 29 degrees at end of the game. Again concerning. Thankfully UEFA have been monitoring which leagues have ensured that it has been provided and which one's haven't so will hopefully soon issue a directive regarding it, ahead of the new season.

There were adverts over the last few days that the World Cup games from 1994 are going to be shown in July. Can't wait!! I look forward to watching Mr Puhl referee, loved him as a referee and can't wait to have a reminder of just how good he was out on the pitch.  ;D

So ends another completely bonkers season. My Kispest won the Kupa, my Lilák stayed up - finished 6th. Sad to have lost Mr Kassai & Mr Ring. I miss György, in particular, so much :( I miss Mr K's handsome face and epic death stare as well. Also lost my Mr beautiful - Nebojša - maybe we will get a new home in the summer! I will not handle the loss of the lovely Mr Solymosi on top of that so please Mr Puhl talk him into another year!

Off to celebrate my Lilák staying up!

Soha ne add fel!!

Gratulálok Péter.

Happy bmb as the article confirms that he will be continuing until at least December so #SolymosiWatch will still be a thing in the Autumn season!
