Season One: October Update
We produced what was so nearly a perfect month as we recored 6 wins and 1 draw from seven games. Our draw came midway in the month in the League Cup against an in-form Balmazújváros. We had to come back in to the game after conceding early on and we were unfortunate not to win the game as we had a last minute goal chalked out for offside. A fair decision, however. Our most notable performances came in a league game against Ajka, where we won 5-1, a 3-1 victory over Vasas and in an 8-2 thumping against Gyirmót in the Hungarian Cup, where we went 6-0 up at half-time (see match report here
). That ten-goal thriller was a product of our continuously building confidence and the hunger of our players to score more and more and more. I am on cloud nine with this month; we have been in legendary form, breaking club records left, right and centre.
Player Of The Month
This was an extremely tough choice this month as club captain Dávid Pákolicz and midfielder Dániel Kákonyi have been in sensational. However, Péter Szilágyi
's ridiculous goal scoring record could not be ignored. The striker scored an outstanding eleven goals in seven games this month, including posting hat-tricks against Ajka and Gyirmót! This guy has been in the form of his life and nobody can stop him. His relentless shooting has proven to be the bane of many an opposition team this season and he has already become a Fan Favourite. I hope he continues his form because with him at his best, we can beat anybody.

Hungarian Division II
It was an unblemished month for us in the league as we four wins from four. This has seen us extend our lead at the top of the table to a massive eight points. While we are only a third of the way through the season, we have given ourselves a great platform to secure the league title over the next set of games. Our goal difference of +19 has been far superior to anybody else's and we are the only unbeaten team in the league. Can we win the title? I certainly believe we can!
Hungarian League Cup
The four points which we picked up this month has seen us climb to the top of our group. If we earn two points from our final two fixtures, we are guaranteed qualification to the next round. While this competition is not overly prestigious, it is one which we are competing in and so it is one which I want to win. While we are one of the weaker teams in the competition, we have already proved that we can overcome the odds against strong teams. Hopefully we can out-perform some of the giants.
We have a tight schedule next month as we play eight games. We play five league games where I will be hoping to pick up at least ten points. I feel that if we pick up this amount of points, we will extend our lead over the others and surely put the title race beyond any doubt. We play out the remainder of our League Cup group matches with a home fixture against (not even going to try to spell their name) before a derby game away to Debrecen, where qualification could eventually come down to the result of that match. Meanwhile, Hungarian Division I side Haladás are our opponents in the Hungarian Cup Fifth Round as we host our opponents in the first leg. If we can continue our form, I can see us going unbeaten for yet another month. Hopefully we can keep impressing our fans with plenty of goals and plenty of action!
