Kadar Did A Very Good Job Saturday – Hughton

Tamas Kadar gave yet another confident display on Saturday afternoon, when he came on for Jose Enrique, whose comeback lasted but 33 minutes following his hamstring injury.

Tamas Kadar – could get 7th start of season Saturday

And it looks like Tamas could well get a start at Middlesbrough on Saturday with Chris Hughtopn unlikely to risk Enrique, especially after Tamas gave such a mature display on Saturday at left back.

The 19 year-old Hungarian defender who has already played 3 times for the Hungary U21 side looks the part already on Tyneside.

The Saturday game was Kadar’s 10th appearance of the season, and this lad will be challenging for a starting position in the back four sooner rather than later, and maybe as soon as next season.

He so far has 6 starts on the season and he likely will add to that total on Saturday.

Even in pre-season Tamas played extremely well and is an old fashioned type of center-back and doesn’t take any chances.

It’s good to see some of our youngsters come through and mature at the club, and we look to other youngsters such as Nile Ranger, Haris Vuckic and Brad Inman to name just three, to continue to develop well on Tyneside.

Enrique is due to return to training tomorrow, but Chris is usually sides towards caution with injuries, and it’s had a good effect since Newcastle have not had too many injuries at all this season – in any case much less than in previous years.

Chris Hughton admits he has no qualms about calling on the 6’2″ defender if he needs to against Middlesbrough:

“Tamas did very well when he came on against Barnsley,” “His use of the ball was very good and he slotted straight in without any problems.”

“He’s still a young player and is learning the game, but there’s no doubt he has got a lot of talent.”

“He sees his best position as a centre-back but we’ve seen he can come in at left-back and do a very good job.”

It will be a tough test for Newcastle on Saturday at Middlesbrough, but the lads will go all out to attempt to keep their winning streak going. The streak is currently at 4 and their best win streak this season is 7.

WBA won last night 1-0 at home to Sheffield Wednesday, and are now just 6 points behind the Magpies, who do however have a game in hand on the Midlands outfit.

Wins are what will take the team up this season, and we hope to get all 3 points again on Saturday.

    @Ed – you’re overplaying boros strengths and underplaying ours – we should beat boro for def
    it’s getting to squeaky bum time and we have the players who should be able to cope with it…… thats why our wage bill is at least twice that of other championship teams

    I think the lad has done fantastically well, but I can’t help but feel nervous when we put young lads out at the back with inexperience. I know this lad has it in him to be a top player for a very long time, but I have seen too many defenders played regularly too early and it seems to destroy their confidence. If he does have a couple of howlers, lets stay off his back… after all, he’s only a bairn.

    He is soon to be 20. Not a bairn at all.Talents should definitely play (a lot of) games at this age. The Championship is perfect for him to develop.
    I also hope we start using Nile instead of Best …

    When you hit my age all players (appart from the odd freak keeper) are bairns! What I mean is his relative lack of experience worries me, but so far he hasn’t let us down, and seems to have settled. I just don’t want the fans on his back knacking his confidence, something historicaly Newcastle fans have been very good at.

    Off thread but I think loosley relevant to current players, potential signings and most crucially at this stage of the season, player morale.

    It’s clear that the usually hostile southern press is about to embark on a non-substantiated mission to scupper us. The Mail’s at it already and there appears to be no real substance to its views.

    Absolutely disgraceful and they know that at most there’ll be a ‘no comment’ from the club and that of course adds fuel to the fire!

    Just read a brief note about that on football365 lesh. If this is a real leak the timing is hardly ideal like. I do hope it is another peice of speculation. I would hate to see the wheels fall off now.
