Krisztián Tímár (born 4 October 1979 in Budapest) is a Hungarian footballer, playing in defence for Football League One side Oldham Athletic on loan from Championship club Plymouth Argyle.


Playing career

Timár began his career with Ferencváros in 1995 before having two-year spells with MTK Hungária and BKV Előre. He spent the next four-years with four clubs in two countries before returning to his first club, Ferencváros. In early January 2007 his form for them attracted interest from Plymouth Argyle and he signed on loan for the Pilgrims for the remainder of the 2006–07 season, with compatriot Péter Halmosi.[1] He made a great start to his loan period with a debut goal in the 2-2 draw with Wolves at Molineux.[2]

The duo impressed and they both joined the club permanently in May 2007.[3] During his time with the club Timár has built up a cult following, with his no-nonsense approach and 100% commitment endearing him greatly to the Argyle supporters. Timár was voted as the club's Player of the Year for the 2007–08 season in April 2008 before he suffered an horrific head injury in the final game of the season at Wolves.[4] He signed a new three-year contract, with the option of a fourth, in July 2008.[5]

Upon his return he endured a frustrating 2008–09 season, losing his place in the team to Craig Cathcart. He made just 22 appearances, with 8 of them coming as a substitute, which prompted then manager Paul Sturrock to challenge him to put the season behind him and rediscover his form of 2007–08.[6] He began the 2009–10 season strongly with a goal against Crystal Palace but soon found himself out of the team again, and upon the opening of the January transfer window he was sent out on-loan to Oldham Athletic for a month by Paul Mariner in order to gain first-team football.[7]

International career

Timár represented his country at youth level and was called up to the Hungarian senior team for the first time in March 2008 for the match against Slovenia.[8] He made his long awaited full international debut in that game as part of the starting eleven. He made his fourth appearance for the Magyars against Sweden in September 2009.[9]
