Tamas Kadar Plays Full Game For Hungary Under-19s

Newcastle United’s 17 year old center-back Tamas Kadar played the full 90 minutes for Hungary Under-19s on Wednesday night in their friendly with Germany in Budapest.


Tamas Kadar – very impressive displays at Newcastle

Hungary were behind 1-0 when Hungary’s Busai Attila scored in the 66th minute to earn a 1-1 draw for the young Magyars.

Tamas Kadar, who turns 18 tomorrow, has hugely impressed at Newcastle since he signed in January. The 6’2” central defender, who is a cool character in defense, joined Newcastle from Zalaegerszegi TE. Tamas has already represented the Hungary Under-21 side when he was just 17, he‘s that good,

Great things are expected of the youngster at Newcastle and since he started playing for the Reserves in January, the team has only suffered one defeat in seven games.

We wouldn’t be at all surprised if Tamas is the first of our five young captures in January, to start pushing for a first team place next season.

He can operate at center-back or left back, and with his cultured performances he is likely to play a more visible role in the squad next season. We expect him to make his first team debut, certainly before he turns 19 next March.

We cannot wait. 😀

    Why wait till next season. Would luv it if KK gives youngsters some bit part to play as sub in 1st team action. Bet many of the fans would luv it too.

    The current reserve team is the main reason I remain optimistic about Newcastle’s future. The revitalisation of Bobby Robson’s youth policy is vital to our future success. If Kadar has anywhere near as much potential as is seems, he, Steven Taylor and David Edgar could end up proving just how fruitful a committed youth policy can be. Taylor has not been anywhere near his best this season, but much of what we see shows that he could be a huge player for us (if he stays). I just hope Edgar remains as loyal as he has been. His debut was one of the most impressive I’ve ever seen from a toon defender, not to mention the 25-yard screamer he fired in.

    Even with Mike’s millions we can’t compete with the big four’s spending powers! At lets face it, we could do with buying 8 or 9 real quality players in the summer, which won’t be easy! So lets get these lad around the 1st team as soon as they’re ready and they can become the heart and passion of the team !it does matter who we buy or for how much! We need lads to breathe Newcastle the Shearer and others have in the past. Kev will bring in good play in the summer and we will compete in the top half next season but I’m really excited to see these young lads develop! It’s not fun at the moment as a Newcastle fan, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel!

    well its all well and good having these young players but it would be stupid putting them into the frame too early, i dont expect keegan to use them if he doesnt have to till maybe next season,

    maybe if someone does get a chance it will be david edgar or andy carroll…

    we need to ensure our status in the premier league. use the so called star players and big names until we get the points. i have faith that we will win against birmingham on monday night and beat fulham and this will just be a thing that happened before keegan manages to wisk us away ‘up the premierleague we go’

    To ensure our status in the premier league is indeed top priority. The team performance so often lack guts. They collapse unfailingly when the going gets tough. Dogged determination so essential a quality is sadly non existent or at best only seen in sporadic flashes by some. Blind faith in the non performers is foolish. It may even get us relegated. By contrast, the reserves performance is refreshing.
    A cautious approach about putting them into the frame too early may be our undoing. Wayne Rooney was doing the business for Everton at a young age. Arsene Wenger believes in his youngsters and they repay his confidence in them handsomely. We’ve got some big lads in our reserves. 1st team action as substitutes now and then would provide the necessary exposure to make them better and also serve as the much needed competition for the under performing regulars. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Football is no game for the faint hearted.

    Aye Egar, i seem to remember a certain Michael Owen playing for liverpool at 16/17 years old/young…& while i’m not advocating throwing in tons of kids right now, a couple probably wouldn’t go a miss!..’cos the ones who’ve made it onto the pitch from the bench have looked pretty good, up for it & with some proper passion!..
    …Ho’way the Lads!..

    That’s right, Punk Skunk. And what a performance young MO delivered back then – goals aplenty.
