Good To See Tamas Kadar Get A Run-out On Saturday

Jose Enrique last only 33 minutes in his comeback game on Saturday.

Jose Enrique – last only 33 minutes

Jose apparently felt a slight tightness in his hamstring, and it was so wise to bring the lad off quickly, so he didn’t do any more damage to it.

Chris Hughton had told the Spaniard that if he felt anything in the hamstring during the game to let him know and Jose did just that, with the good news today is that he should be OK for next Saturday’s game at the Riverside against Middlesbrough.

But the good side of it is it gave Jose some time back in the first team, and it also gave our young Hungarian defender Tamas Kadar another taste of first team football, and it’s been a while since the youngster had his last run-out.

With the way the game turned on the penalty decision and sending off just before half time it was a comfortable afternoon for the 19 year old who in fact turns 20 next Sunday.

We like the look of the lad and he will gain invaluable experience form his run-out – and the lad can play well at left back as well as being very solid in the heart of Newcastle’s defense, when he’s played there. We make that Kadar’s 10th appearance for Newcastle, which isn’t too bad for one still so young.

With Coloccini, Williamson and Steven Taylor fighting it out for the two starting central defensive positions, and this lad coming through fast, it means the team shouldn’t need to bolster the central defensive positions in the summer, that’s for sure.

Comments welcome.

    Really glad to see Williamson come through – he used to play for Wycombe which is just down the road from me. Strange to see him play for the Toon now.
    I should think we would still need another left back in the summer as we have yet to provide Jose with proper competition, and Kadar could probably do with some more experience.
    Be good to see if our youth players can go out on loan next season – the likes of Ranger, Kadar and Lua Lua must have garnered some interest.

    I’d like to see Ranger kept with us. Hopefully he can get some moe game time towards the end of the season (right now its hard to fault having Lover & Carrol as starting strikers) Bu I honestly think he is our 3rd best striker, he may not have scored as much as Strola this year, but he keeps the ball much better and is very good at buying the time to get support up from midfield. I’d like him to get some game time in the premiership next season and see how he looks against better teams.

    I agree Mr Books, but I am also a little concerned that he might not yet be ready for a regular gig in the Prem. I still think he is at the ‘potential, and bags of it’ stage of his career and would hate to knack his confidence by giving him too much too soon.
