[FM12] The Magical Magyars

The Magical Magyars

I had a go with this on FM11 here is the Link

[FM11] The Magnificent Magyars

Updates on the career will follow a similar way

Hungary were considered the greatest international team of the 1950's, going on a 4 year unbeaten run until they lost the 1954 World Cup final 3-2 to West Germany, a team they demolished 8-3 in the group stages only a few weeks before. An attack spearheaded by Ferenc Puskas made them a difficult team to defend against. However things of late have not been rosy for Hungary with them failing to qualify for a major tournament since 1986.

I have been hired as the unanimous choice to bring back the glory days of old, where a team was feared the world over.

FA Expectations

I have asked to be competitive in the remaining Qualifiers, with 3rd place all but guaranteed

Qualifying Group E

I will be using this more as preperation for the World Cup Qualifiers

Current World Ranking: 45th

My 1st game in charge was a friendly against Iceland

Hungary 1-1 Iceland

A bit of a cagey affair but happy enough with the result

Hungary 0-3 Sweden

A one sided match we were never expected to win

Moldova 0-3 Hungary

A comfortable win for my 1st victory as the Manager

Hungary 4-3 Finland

Two wins out of two, a tenser match as we went behind twice before winning in the end

Qualifying Group E final Table

A respectable looking 3rd place so something to build on for the future

Poland 4-2 Hungary

Final match of the year ended in disappointment, despite dominating the defence let the team down with lapses in concentration

A couple of Friendly results before the World Cup Qualifying begins

Hungary 2-2 Bulgaria

A fairly evenly matched contest, finishing could've been slightly better but no real complaints

Hungary 1-1 Scotland

Lucky enough to get a draw from this match, but hopefully I can remain unbeaten through the year

World Cup Qualifying Group 4

A decent draw for the Magyars, Andorra and Estonia should be full points and If I can win at home against Turkey and Romania I should have a chance of finishing 2nd behind the Dutch

2013

2013 started with a friendly and a chance to test out a new tactic

Hungary 1-3 Serbia

Serbia raced to a 3-0 lead after 14 minutes and the tactic seemed to be failing, but then the team clicked so decided to persevere with it

World Cup Qualifiers

Hungary 0-1 Holland

A close match that should've ended in at least a draw

Hungary 1-0 Estonia

The scoreline flattered Estonia

Friendly

Russia 2-0 Hungary

Outclassed and outplayed should've been a bigger margin of defeat

Latest Qualifying Table

Really need to beat Romania and Turkey to stand any chance

Domestic News

Two teams made the Group stage of the Europa League but both finished last and well off the pace.

The best facilities in Hungary are Average but most clubs have Basic so no real prospects anytime soon I think

That is a really tough job, no talent, no youth foundations, some expectations, and nothing you can do to build extra talent. All you can do is try to grind out results through tactics and hope for the best...

Forgot to mention that the Hungarian Division 1 is currently 49th ranked up 18 places from 67th, and the coefficients is currently 28th so Money from Europe for the clubs is not going to be easy to come by.

Managers Summary

Well a bit of a disappointing year in charge of Hungary, My attempt to have an attacking formation like the team of the 50's has backfired the team has slumped to its lowest ranking ever. The FA were pleased that I was competitive though, but they do want improvement otherwise I'll be replaced. So I now have a few friendlies before the Euro's Qualification to test out a more conservative tactic.

You're not gonna get an easier group than that, Greece and Norway are still stronger but it's now or never. It's quite tight though, you could very easily end up 1st or last. Do both 1st and 2nd placed go through to the Euros? (it's the first edition of the 24-team Euros).

Any regens worth considering a call-up by now or is this still too early?

Top two automatically qualify and there are playoffs between 3rd placed teams so should have a good chance, no newgens looking that good yet, but a couple of cameroonians got citizenship so I called 1 up and he went off injured after 10 mins so hasn't been seen in the national team since

To answer jcoll's question this is the closest to any decent player coming through the Hungarian clubs

Istvan Racz

He might get a call up in the near future purely based on his acceleration

Managers Summary

Disasterous year and was surprised that the Hungarian FA were happy that I was competitive in Qualifiers, may have to resort to a basic tactic to try and get some pride back

Much better season here, 3rd in that group given the lack of talent available is quite good actually, but unfortunately you'd need further improvements if you're to lead Hungary back to a major international competition. Last time was the 1986 World Cup I believe?

Yeah there isn't much talent coming through either with no improvements to clubs facilities at all during this save, I also keep getting informed that only 57% of players in the league are Hungarian Nationals so that doesn't help. 1986 is correct I mention it in the opening blurb, was hoping I qualified for Euro 2016 to end 30 years of Hurt!!

2019 - Hungary Expects

Friendly

Hungary 0-1 Turkey

Close match but the Turks got their revenge

Qualifiers

Poland 1-2 Hungary

A big victory for Hungary, creating a bit of breathing space and making qualification look almost certain

Hungary 2-3 France

France edged this thrilling game, but as they are favourites to win the group no real surprises

San Marino 1-0 Hungary

A result that surely echoed over the globe, Hit the woodwork 3 times and was constantly knocking at the door but San Marino pulled off a great win, Poland beat France and qualification looks precarious at the moment

Friendly

Hungary 1-1 Cyprus

A good game to clear the cobwebs before the final rounds of qualification

Qualifiers

Hungary 7-0 Andorra

Great result and the more goals we score the better incase it comes down to difference

Albania 0-4 Hungary

Another big win for us as we sit 2nd on goal difference

Hungary 2-0 Poland

The players were really fired up for this game and dominated from start to finish, Qualification was confirmed after this result as we had a better head to head

France 3-0 Hungary

Completely outclassed by the French, who I seem to have drawn again in the World Cup Qualifiers

Final Qualification Table

Hungary Qualify for the 2020 European Championships in Belgium

We have been drawn in Group D against Germany, Russia and France(seems to be the team I get drawn against all the time)

Friendlies

Hungary 2-2 Latvia

Gave a defender his 1st cap to test him out and he gave away a penalty so not sure if he’ll be selected for Belgium

Hungary 3-3 Slovakia

Pleased with the fighting spirit to come back from 2 goals down but the defence really needs to improve before the tournament

2020 - Pre-Tournament Friendlies

Malta 0-1 Hungary

Created several chances but couldn't find the killer instinct in front of goal

Hungary 1-0 Moldova

Again the finishing was awful, our defence played well as Moldova didn't have a shot at goal

Hungary 1-1 Macedonia

Another hatful of chances but finishing again is woeful

Hungary 4-0 Luxembourg

Finally found that scoring feeling which had been missing in other games

Manager's Thoughts for the tournament

Well I'm not confident after the poor finishing in the friendlies, at best I can hope for a result against Russia, Germany will no doubt beat us and I hope to keep the scoreline respectable in our 1st game against France

Euro 2020 - Belgium - Group Match 1

So our familiar foes France are up 1st in the Championships, and we start brightly trying to take the game to them, both teams are playing well but neither can break down the others defence to have any real chances in the 1st half

Half-Time : Hungary 0-0 France

Match Stats

Hungary Player Stats

The 2nd half started pretty much the same as the 1st with both teams trying to find a way through, as the Hungarian legs started to tire Mbiwa pounced on a chance for France on the 69th minute to put them in front, after that they seemed comfortable to keep possession as the game closed out.

Full-Time: Hungary 0-1 France

Match Stats

So defeat in the 1st game but a respectable performance, hopefully the next match against Russia will be more rewarding.

Euro 2020 - Belgium - Group Match 2

Russia is the next team on the agenda and we'll be looking for a victory in this match, the match started at a hectic pace and that quick speed enabled us to hit them on the break with Racz scoring an easy tap in, both teams went in the hunt for the next goal but as half time approached it wasn't coming

Half-Time : Russia 0-1 Hungary

Match Stats

Hungary Player Stats

The 2nd half was another of high paced play as Hungary went searching for the cushion goal while Russia searched for an equaliser but some great goalkeeping at both ends meant the score wouldn't change

Full-Time: Russia 0-1 Hungary

So the final game against Germany approaches and a draw may be enough to reach the second otherwise we could be coming home.

Euro 2020 - Belgium - Group Match 3

Germany who had all but qualified with 2 wins out of 2 were our final match where we were hoping to take something from the game, unfortunately they were far too strong for us and took the lead in the 16th minute, before doubling it on the 38th.

Half-Time : Hungary 0-2 Germany

Match Stats

Hungary Player Stats

We started the 2nd half with more vibrancy looking to take something from the game and were rewarded in the 68th minute to get ourselves back in the game, but with 10 minutes remaining out Keeper was off his line and a superb chip from 25 yards out restored the Germans 2 goal advantage

Full-Time: Hungary 1-3 Germany

Remarkably enough that win against Russia was enough to qualify us for the 2nd round where we will meet Holland.

Congrats! Quite lucky to get through with 3 points but definitely deserve it after beating Poland in the qualifiers (twice!) now Russia in the Euros! That's a very big break for hungarian football.

Euro 2020 - Belgium - 2nd Round

Holland were our opponents for the 2nd round match, and despite being the better team we couldn't find a way through so we finished the half goaless

Half-Time : Holland 0-0 Hungary

The 2nd half was going pretty much the same as the 1st until the Referee decided to show his 1st card of the match, a red one at that, in the 54th minute. This changed the whole complexion of the game and Holland started knocking at the door, and we rewarded soon after. A dodgy penalty was given against us but our keeper saved it to keep the tie alive, but no team could find anymore and so it finished with the one goal and Hungary were out

Full-Time: Holland 1-0 Hungary

So Hungary go out in the second round, I was very pleased with the way the team performed, and now we can concentrate on the World Cup Qualifiers.
