Húsvéti Torna 1934 was an interesting tournament between four of Central Europe's leading forces. The plot of the matches had a very offensive theme, reflecting very well the old saying taught in Central Europe: the best defense is the attack. However, of course, a good performance by the teams' defensive system is still necessary — an aspect that did not happen. Even the half-back lines showed more offensive than defensive characteristics on occasions. The goalkeepers, on the other hand, did well, especially the Hungarians.
The matches were a spectacle of offensive combinations, both due to quality issues and due to the poor performance of the full-backs. This time, with a little more transitions with wingers being played and less internal combinations.
The worst team was F.K. Austria, for a series of reasons, both due to the high number of reserves, as well as the young players — as was the case with goalkeeper Müllner — the not so good phase of some stars, injured players and so on. The highlight of the team, as almost every time, was the centre-forward Matthias Sindelar. The team from Hütteldorf, S.K. Rapid, showed a dominant performance against Hungária, but not in its maximum quality. In the match against Ferencváros, S.K. Rapid could also have performed better. One of the issues that derailed the performance was the replacement of Franz Wagner, Hugo Meisl's Austria's starting right half-back. Franz Raftl, Josef Smistik and Franz Binder were the highlights of the team in the tournament.
Both Hungarian teams excelled on their own soil, most notably Ferencváros. Hungária failed against S.K. Rapid and won against the depleted F.K. Austria.
Ferencváros demonstrated their offensive combinations with extreme clarity. Led by the complete game of the young Sárosi, through his sublime technique and sophisticated ideas, the forward line attacked almost like a tsunami, completely swallowing the defensive system of the opponents. Hungária, in turn, was a team in transition, with many talents still being polished, but they already showed that the great future would be closer than they imagined.
Dr. György Sárosi ended up being the tournament's top scorer with 9 goals in just 2 matches. The Hungarian star, moreover, was clearly considered the best player of the tournament. At that time, as much as Sárosi-probléma was a discussion, Sárosi was considered by many the best centre-forward on the continent.
