Bias in Puskás Akadémia FC articleEdit

In the Puskás Akadémia FC article there is a section entitled "Trivia" that leans on political propaganda and makes claims without citing sources. It would behoove us to remove this section for the sake of neutrality, as the author is clearly displaying bias with his comments.

Romanian name of Nyíregyháza?Edit

A supposed Romanian name of Nyíregyháza, Mestecănești, can be found on different places on the internet, including Google Maps, some Romanian websites and on Wikipedia articles in some languages, including English until not too long ago. It's nothing recent, originating from at least 2007 – here you can see a user of Romanian Wikipedia asking about the origin of another variant that appeared on ro.wikipedia, Mestecăniș.

The problem is that I haven't found any historical source referring to this name. Yet, somehow, it's so widespread that it's even used on Google Maps. The name Nyíregyháza comes from nyír, the Hungarian word for "birch". So does the German name Birkenkirchen (from Brike), as well as the supposed Romanian name – mesteacăn is Romanian for "birch". The name, however, looks like a recent creation, since Romanian variants of Hungarian toponyms are always similar-sounding: Debrecen → Debrețin, Békéscsaba → Bichișciaba, Gyula → Giula etc. Also, Mestecănești contains the -ești suffix, typical for places in Wallachia and Moldavia, but rare in Transylvania.

Does anyone know how this name came into being and whether there are reliable sources on it? I've asked the same question on WikiProject:Romania. Cheers! Lupishor (talk) 19:26, 30 May 2021 (UTC)
