Tamas Kadar has a great chance to shine for Huddersfield Town over at least the next month, and that will do his chances at Newcastle no harm at all.
Tamas Kadar – could play 8 games for Huddersfield
We are big fans of the big Hungarian and don’t think he’s too far off competing for a first team place on Tyneside.
But what he’s lacked these last couple of seasons is enough games to get into the swing of things and improve rapidly, which is why his loan move to Huddersfield could be very good for both clubs.
Tamas made his debut in the 3-2 win against Plymouth and will play again at Walsall tomorrow.
Alan Pardew has managed in League One with Southampton, and thinks it’s a great place for the young Hungarian International to develop his game:
“He will be better off for experiencing football in a very tough division,”
“Huddersfield are a good club who are chasing promotion and this is a good chance for Tamas to get some games under his belt.”
Kadar’s initial loan runs through the middle of February, and Huddersfield have 8 games in that period, and since Tamas was on the bench for Newcastle in their embarrassing loss against Stevenage last Saturday, Tamas can play in the 4th round of the FA Cup at Arsenal or Leeds the weekend after next.
By the way, for Newcastle fans, Stevenage got a home tie with Reading in the 4th round.
Tamas played in the Carling Cup at St. James’ Park in the 4-0 defeat against Arsenal, although the score was hardly indicative of what was quite a close game, especially in the first 60 minutes, with Chris Hughton playing his second string – but Arsene Wenger didn’t. 😀
Lee Clark knows Tamas well from the time he was the Newcastle Reserve team manager on Tyneside, and seemed impressed with the player against Plymouth on Wednesday night:
“I worked with him at Newcastle, so I know what we are getting,” “He played as a central defender when he made his debut against us in the Carling Cup last season and that shows how flexible he is.”
“But the thing for me was the desire he showed.” “He was on the bench for Newcastle in the FA Cup last Saturday, but he couldn’t agree to the move here quickly enough.”
“He collected his boots from the Newcastle training ground on Sunday before traveling here to be with the squad in preparation for the Plymouth game.”
“He tired in the game because he hasn’t had that much football of late.” “But you could see he is comfortable on the ball, and there were some big pluses to take.”
We’ll be following Tamas’ progress at Huddersfield in the next month, and hope that both Kadar and The Terriers do very well over that time period.
