Hungarian Star Kadar Could Make Magpies Debut Tonight


With 11 players out injured Joe Kinear has said he may have to turn to 6’2″ Hungarian 18 year-old defender Tamas Kadar in tonight’s FA Cup third-round replay against Hull.

Tamas Kadar – we hope 18 year-old makes his debut tonight

Kinnear has two options which are to play Kadar or play unsettled Charles N’Zogbia – who has an in jury and may noty pass a fitness test today.

We’d rather see Tamas Kadar start quite honestly because the reports about Kadar are that he is a first class defender in the making. It would either be Kadar or Ben Tozer for that full back position, and of course they could play either side because David Edgar can play in either full back place.

We have also been unimpressed, to say the least, about how N’Zogbia has been muddying the Newcastle club in the press, so it wouldn’t bother us one bit if he started on the bench tonight. No Newcastle player should talk negatively about the club in public.

Tamas, who was born in  Veszprem, Hungary, was signed by Newcastle at the end of last January, and was one of five great young teenagers who were brought to the club during the last January transfer window by Chairman Chris Mort.

Kinnear seems a little concerned about plunging a player with no first-team experience into this FA Cup tie, but players of Kadar’s ability and temperament will take this as a huge opportunity to show Joe what he can do, and we’d love to see the boy start tonight.

Kadar has been excellent for the Reserves since he came to Tyneside, and has already been selected for the full Hungary side last May and then in July, but came away injured from the squad during the summer.

Kinnear told the Evening Chronicle today:

“Tamas has done very well.

“I’d think out of most of the young lads, he would have a realistic chance of playing, or almost certainly being involved in the game.”

“I have got other options, but they depend on the fitness level of Charles, who is suffering from a thigh strain.”

Kadar before coming to Newcastle played for the Zalaegerszegi first team in Hungary, and made his debut when he was just 16 years old – he’s that good.

Kinnear will play David Edgar at right-back, and seems to have only Xisco available to play with Michael Owen up front.

Joe was asked about that and said:

“I am thinking about that. It’s just who I start with up front, to be honest.”

“I haven’t got any choice with what’s not available to me – no Shola, no Viduka, no Oba Martins and no Andy Carroll.”

“That’s four strikers who won’t be involved in the game, so I might go five across the middle and play Michael up front by himself.”

We’d be surprised to see Xisco start this game, because if he gets injured, that will mess up Joe’s plans for the transfer window, and we don’t think Kinnear will tempt fate tonight – because with Newcastle’s luck right now, he’s very likely to lose out.

Comments welcome.

    We all know it a different kettle of fish in the 1st team. Lets hope that if he plays that he can use his skills that he has for the reserves and step up to the plate.

    I will give him 100% suppport from my seat!

    N’Zogbia is at it again. This is the 4th statement in just over a week.

    Great news.

    The only positive of these injuries is that it is forcing JFK’s hand to play some youngsters, who most of us know are good enough.

    Lualua and Kadar in particular.

    So he bloody well should. It’s about time we played players that want to play for the club instead of playing a certain left winger at left back and getting murdered every game.

    I’m glad he is going to get his opportunity, he deserves it! Hopefully he will have a good game! He has the ability and the physical attributes, but its a big step up. But Bassong did it with ease, though Kadar is a few years younger! But other teams don’t mind blooding their young players. So good luck to him. One for the future, but he can stake a claim for himself tonight.

    we just need to get rid of zog now, he clearly wants to go and shouldnt play for the club anymore, hes is dragging the clubs name throught the mud even more than it has been, although to be honest he is not wrong in saying the club is getting worse each year but he should not be saying that in the press.

    Lets hope Kadar starts. If we play N’gobliar at LB we’re f****d!

    Taking the girlfriend and her parents to the match the night cos its a cup game. If the potential mother-in-law talks throughout the match (like i think she might) and it’s not going well i’m liable to karate chop’er!

    Good luck to him..Hull aint going to roll over tonight and I think we will be out muscled and battered.

    They will field a much stronger team than the reserves we played against..now its the opposite way around we are fielding our kids.

    Roeder got sacked by Norwich and Adam Sadler got sacked twice in a single season. I hope Roeder realises that he is not suited to be a manager, I’ll be happy to let him take his old job at the academy.

    If you read nufc.com, N’Zogbia is reportedly carrying a knock (there’s a surprise!) as is Tozer.

    You just know the backline will read Taylor, Colo, Bassong and Edgar though.

    I like N’Zogbias latest quote

    “It is up to them to approach Newcastle and me. I am waiting for them. Lyon, make a move!

    Reckon he was shouting that over the Channel like some sort of damsel in distress?

    let’s discuss Xisco. From my angle it seems like we invested alot of money in someone who finds himself behind Shola, Owen, Martins and Carroll in the pecking order. The reserve team dont want to touch him either and now Kinnear is talking about playing 5 midfielders with owen up front by himself (at home to hull) simply to avoid playing him.

    he must be awfull.

    i was at the game against west brom when he came on and he looked scared stiff. really slow too.

    good scouting work carried out there!

    He doesnt want to play in the reserve team as he see’s it as a step down..
    Is what i remember reading..

    I think he’s quite good.. Somethings up like.. Unless its like when Forrest Gump is trying to get a seat on the bus and nobody’ll let him…
    Cause of the weight on his shoulders from his turmoil inducing arrival

    Apparently this story has come from a Brazilian website and the issue is becoming more confused as he shares the same name as a Benfica youngster

    There are no links on the 2 main streaming info websites. There are only ones so far for Man Utd vs Wigan and Southend vs Chelsea. Keep checking these two for updates though.
