Hungarian term or phrase: Savage: vad, barbár, primitív
I am trying to work out whether a short article is worth translating into English. Can anyone out there give me an idea by translating the gist of the title and the opening line below. If I think it is use-able I will pay for the rest to be translated...

Azt még mindenki látta, hogy a vendégek labdarúgója, Robbie Savage a lefelé bandukoló Bodnár László nyomába ered, s "természetesen" mindezt nem szó nélkül teszi…

Explanation:
"Azt még mindenki látta, hogy a vendégek labdarúgója, Robbie Savage a lefelé bandukoló Bodnár László nyomába ered, s "természetesen" mindezt nem szó nélkül teszi..."

"Everyone could still see the guest football player, Robbie Savage, start after László Bodnár on his way ambling off and, "naturally," he doesn't do this without a word..."

Dan, what is this? A news article piece from the sports column? It's so badly written..

neutral  Csaba Ban: I guess "Savage" is the guy's name here and it does not really matter what the word actually means
7 hrs

neutral  Andras Szekany: yes, Csaba is correct, anyway, the second part of the sentence suggests a kind of an oncoming fight or what
9 hrs

agree  Eva Blanar: the title is a "translation" of the name into Hungarian - "Savage: wild, barbarian, primitive" - that's why "naturally"... it seems that the author builds the whole article on that.
