    such as it is

    hi!

    Would you check my examples? I'd like to make sure 'such as it is' is used correctly.

    1. He attended the top-of-the-table clash during his stay in Hungary. Allegedly, it was a great match, such as it is - Hungarian soccer is so bad.

    2. Vote for Hicks; he seems reliable, such as it is - the majority of presidents lies.

    "Such as it is" means "in that form even though it isn't very good."

    Your uses don't really work for me.

    You can stay for supper, such as it is.
