Can Tamas Kadar Make Breakthrough Next Season?

Newcastle’s 20 year-old Hungarian center-back Tamas Kadar is an ambitious young player.

Tamas Kadar – wants first team football

And we’re sure Tamas is looking to build on his first team experiences next season in the Premiership, but he will have considerable competition at center back from the likes of Steven Taylor, Fabricio Coloccini, Mike Williamson and maybe even Fitz Hall.

And there has been news this week that Newcastle manager Chris Hughton may be after Manchester City’s defenders Nedum Onuoha and Dedryck Boyata, both of whom can play at center-back.

Tamas told the Evening Chronicle today:

“I’m going to start the pre-season here.” “I enjoy life in Newcastle and I’m going to keep working hard.”

“Before this season, I had two bad injuries. The last was a broken leg, so I missed six months.”

“But I think I’ve had a good season in the Championship and now I just aim to build on that.”

Kadar, with an injury free season next term, can improve dramatically, and it’s our view this lad could even be a starter towards the latter end of next season – we think he’s that good.

Tamas continued:

“It is a good feeling when you’re playing alongside Coloccini, Mike Williamson or Steven Taylor.”

“They are quality players.” “They have experience, and I’m happy playing with them.”

Kadar has also signalled his intention of getting his first full Hungarian cap – and he’s already played 3 times for the Hungary U21 side and two years  ago was called up for the full squad, but was injured during training.

He appeared 16 times last season for the Magpies with 9 starts, and is a no-nonsense type center-back, who can also play at left-back.

Tamas continued:

“I can play for Under-21s, but maybe I can get a call for the first team.”

“There are going to be the friendly games next season again, so maybe they can try me.”

We are expecting a number of the Newcastle youngsters to come through next season at Newcastle – with perhaps Kadar and Haris Vuckic being the two we have the highest hopes for.

    Sad to say I agree with MarkO. Kadar should have been given more games last season (along with the rest of the youngsters).

    Terrific prospect who will be a regular first team player in a few years. If we bring in the likes of Onuoha or Wheater, we may need to send Kadar out on loan. However, can’t see MA spending 7M on Onuoha although I see an international star in the making so good value for money……

    Kadar was given the cup competitions – he along with the other youngsters choked against lower division competition. He didn’t earn a regular starting spot.

    People keep overlooking this. If Hughton played more youngsters and we didn’t go up – you’d all be crapping yourself right now.

    It’s such a waste of time to say he should have given these kids more time last season. If he did and we lost, that kids future would be up in the air and everyone would be saying Chris needs to concentrate on winning game and getting us promoted. Kadar was going to get a good run at the end but he was injured when he could have started three games in a row.

    I think Kadar looks like he will have it all in the game, but I certainly don’t see him as anywhere near the finished article. When he started getting a game he looked very shaky at first, but then settled in well. I think the way to continue with his education as a player is from the bench. Give him the last 20 mins or so of a game we are comfortable in, and hopefully, he will fulfill the potential.
