Young Tamas Kadar Starting To Look The Part For Newcastle

19 year-old Hungarian defender defender, in only his second league outing last night, further enhanced his growing reputation as he put in a solid showing alongside returning Argentine International Fabricio Coloccini.


Tamas Kadar – solid game last night – well done!
Sheffield United were a very physical side last night, as most sides will try to be – against Newcastle this season.

But the lad stood his ground and after early nerves put in a very solid performance at the back for Newcastle in their win and clean sheet.

We were more than pleased that Chris Hughton kept faith with the youngster  and the Hungarian showed he was a composed and commanding figure at the heart of the Magpies’ defense – and the lads still only 19.

We are big fans of Tamas and you can bet the Hungarian coaches are well aware that the youngster has now played two successive games for Newcastle United – and looked good.

He has already been called up for the full Hungarian squad a year last summer, but he was injured during training and has never appeared yet for the full side.

Chris was just delighted with the performance of Tamas – who rewarded his manager with a stellar game.

Chris said today:

“They were a very physical and direct side and you have to be able to cope with that.”

“Tamas Kadar was excellent at the back.” “He’s not the biggest of lads yet but he coped very well.”

“He’s young and is learning with every game that goes by.” “But we had to weather the storm at times and the lad did extremely well.”

“It was big bonus having Fabricio Coloccini back and I thought he and Tamas were very good.”

Coloccini and Kadar did so well, that it wouldn’t surprise us too much if Chris keeps them together for the Peterborough game.

Certainly you can see the way Tams is gaining in confidence from these games, and and mark our words in 6 months this lad will be playing much like young Nile Ranger is now – a regular first-teamer.

Tamas is also more than an accomplished left back – so watch out Jose – the youngster is  starting to look like another Sebastien Bassong, but 4 years younger than Seb, so wouldn’t that be something.

If Tamas continues in this form, Chris may have second thoughts about spending money in January on another center-back if we have Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Zurab Khizanishvili and now Tamas Kadar covering central defense.

Chris could look instead to bring in some wingers and creative midfield players – we’re really short of those, especially if he decides to cash in on Jonas Gutierrez.

So it seems like Nile and Tamas are starting to play very solidly  for the side – when it really matters – and they will only get better.

We love it.

    he had a couple of wobbles where he got caught out of position, and a few lax passes out of defence, but on the whole he had a good game, and he didnt look fazed by the physical side of the game either.

    definitely one to keep an eye on for the future imo.

    Given his age and lack of experience and as Chris says, against a very physical team, I thought he was absolutely brilliant and my man of the match.
    Enrique was also superb last night but because of the reasons I’ve mentioned, Kadar deserves huge credit.

    Looks a far better defender than the likes of Bramble, Carr, Marcelino to name but a few others who’ve been “lucky” enough to wear our colours.

    @Edd Case – I think man of the match may be a slight overstatement, but other than that I though he looked class, after a couple of early shaky moments.

    @G – I listened to the second half of Five Live and Chris Waddle was waxing lyrical of young Kadar’s solid performance and sees him as a great prospect for the future. A great talent for his age and much like Ranger, will get better over tome and experience.

    Of course he was also waxing over Carroll, Enrique, Nolan, Smudge and of course Harper’s contibutions to the result.

    I thought he was very good last night , unfortuntly for him he porb have to wait for another injury or suspension to get a chance, but he has to play like he did last night when it comes around

    Any1 hear that disgrace LLambias on Skysports News? Lost total faith in the idiots! He said St.James Park will still be in the name after rights sold for e.g It will be @ St.James Park. But don’t believe a word any of our hierarchy says. Whoever takes over will have there name then @ St.james.

    He also says he understands how passionate we are about our history etc. So why Let Keegan go, Shearer? COCKNEY MAFIA OUT!

    Did anyone hear the Harper interview on the radio last night? He said the players are looking forward to the peterborough match. Apparently when they beat our youngsters in the Carling Cup a lot of their players were milking it! So the players should be well up for it!

    Tino 97 (11) no I missed that, but let us hope it galvanises them on Sat. Revenge sounds pretty sweet to me.

    Back to Ed’s piece on Tamas, I too was hugely impressed with the kid, and he is definitely a huge prospect for us in the not too distant future. He has a lot of skill on the ball and coped well with a very physical Sheff Utd.

    As for that hateful right hand man of Jabba and his latest utterances, God how much more do we have to suffer at their hands? Do you think he has been goaded into saying something after the local councillor brought a motion to the House of Commons today? Because lets face it, there is very little coming out of Barrack Road in the way of normal communication with its customers, i.e. the fans.

    Does he seriously think I am going to say that on Saturday I am going to James’Park? – get real you total money grabbing, streaking fool of a lackey.

    Johno Toon, lambias said his buddy Mike has just put in £20 million this week and he might have to put in more in the coming months for “day to day running costs” He also said there wasn’t a lot of money around at the moment which affected the sale of the club. Oh and now Mike is committed to getting us back in the prem. Later on in the 3rd part of the SSN interview Lambias is gonna reveal how Mike intends to sell the likes of Enrique to the mackems, Nolan to Hull, Smith to Everton, Harper to Burnley, Krul to Juventus, Carroll to Stoke…………..

    want to comment on young Kadar not that arse llambias. Kadar was excellent last night and with a prayer must signal the end of the experiment that is Zhurab. The lad looked a ball playing centre back with an eye for a pass which is a must in modern day football. A hoof up the field is ok to clear your lines must under pressure but you have to build attacks.
    Still haven’t quite worked out why the Hare was brought on last night and not Guthrie. At that stage of the game we needed players to retain posession which is not something you can level at the Hare
    Hey Ho though onwards and upwards

    I agree totally with you all. Given, Taylor, Butt, Dyer, Solano, Sibierski, Martins and last but certainly not least Milner have been amazing this season. That is a great group of players which we must do our best to keep. Add this with the other talented players we have such as…Owen, Duff, Parker, N’Zogbia, Ameobi, Emre, Luque ( if he will ever play), Krul, Ramage and Edgar and we have the quality to beat anyone. It has been an appalling and painfully depressing season but we have things to look foward to such as…the arrival of Sam Allardyce as our new manager ( very good in my eyes ), finally the imminent signing of an improved center-back since the departure of the pathetic Bramble ( i had to go and celebrate on that one! ), the proven potential we have in our reserve team, the makings of a lethal partnership in Martins and Owen and new arrivals in the summer. I personally can’t wait!! Lets just hope the damn injuries don’t occur this time round and we’ll be back in the Champions League next year! I’m going to bet a fortune on that right now

    Just watched that cnut lambsarse what a total knob. to think that people were complaining that Moat didnt have enough money to buy us then invest, but with the shower of sh1te we have they have to sell our best players the stadium name etc just to keep the club ticking over. I would be 100% sure now that it will be sports direct.con

    Re the “at t James’s Park” utterances from Llambias, I agree we must take his patronising comments with a pinch of salt (PR speak!) but I’d like to think that they’ve responded to the initial reaction to Ashley’s comments and common sense has prevailed. What, common sense and this lot?

    They’ve arrived at what I believe to be a sensible compromise for revenue generation by retaining St James’ Park for the seasonal marketing and trust that’s as far as it goes.

    Imagine if we were in Wales, it could turn out as ‘Brains [the brewer] at St James’ Park’. Nah, never as long as Ashley and Llambias are with us!

    Ed…. the Journal’s got an interesting article from Llambias and it’s obvious to me they’ve realised they’ve got to win over the fans et al. A real charm offensive and totally out of kilter with past behaviour – they seem to be on the back foot.

    The journal also has an article saying that Llambias has told them that they will be backing the manager in the transfer market. They would prefer loan signings at the moment but come January, if Chris wants to spend “a million quid or so” on a player they will back him!
    Wow! Be still my beating heart!
    So this is the £20 million investment in the club. This is what £6 million a year for sponsorship will go on. So all you who want us to buy Skjelbred, all those stories about interest in Kilgallon – sorry, these “top stars”are way out of our price bracket.
    And people criticised Moat for maybe not having enough money to invest on players.

    As the saying goes “THERE ARE LIES DAMN LIES & THEN THERE ARE ASHLEY AND LAMBIAS” Two faced gits the pair of them don’t be fooled by what they are saying we must keep the pressure on them until they hightail it out of Toon
