Why Is Tamas Kadar Not Being Given A Chance At Newcastle?


The guy we felt sorry for after the 4-2 defeat at Norwich City last Saturday was Tamas Kadar.

Tamas Kadar – why is this lad not being given a chance?

That’s because, without both Fab Coloccini, Steven Taylor and Mike Williamson o  Saturday, our fourth specialized center-back couldn’t even make the bench at Carrow  Road.

And surely that cannot bode well for the 21 year-old Hungarian’s future on Tyneside.

This is what Alan Pardew recently said about the Hungarian center-back, who has also played at left-back for Newcastle:

“Tamas is an option for us. He has played well for the reserves,” “He is a player who has not had many opportunities and is looking to kick start his Newcastle career.”

“We have had one or two who have come out of the woodwork here, who were supposedly not meant to be in the frame. Ryan Taylor is a prime example.”

“So there is no reason why Tamas can’t come into the side and do very, very well.”

This specific quote was from last Saturday, according to our records, but Tamas will have a  good chance to impress the Newcastle manager this afternoon when the Reserves take on Bolton at Whitley Park, behind closed doors.

And we also expect Mike Williamson to start that game, as he tries to get fully match for to take his place in the first team, but Pardew said yesterday it would be tough for Mike, who turned 28 last month,  to make it as early as this Saturday afternoon, when Swansea come a calling.

With Simpson and Perch not doing well together last Saturday, especially when crosses came in,  we have to think that a good solid performance from Kadar this afternoon could put him in the frame, and even a chance to start  alongside Fab Coloccini on Saturday.

But we half expect Alan Pardew to stick with James Perch, whom he seems to rate, and play him out of position for the second game running.

Even though Alan says Tamas has a chance, he wasn’t even on the bench last Saturday and at 6’2″ could have added much needed height and heading ability to the central defense.

We’ll have to see how Tamas does, but we wonder if Alan Pardew really rates the lad whose contract runs out in the summer.

One interesting fact about Tamas is that he has never been on the losing side for the Magpies in each of his 13 appearances in the league, and he has made 18 total appearances for Newcastle.

The Newcastle fans seem to be right behind the 21 year-old and on November 23rd  we ran this poll:

Can Tamas Kadar Save His Newcastle Career?

Kadar played 16 times during the promotion season, and has two full caps for Hungary, and he has always looked good when he’s  appeared in the first team, and was always calm and collected at the back.

Surely he cannot have gone that much backwards over the last eighteen months or so?

What do you think?

    These are quotes from before the Norwich game, Pardew only says it to try and make sure Kadar doesn’t get too demotivated and not let the opposition know his tactics and selection.

    Kadar is done.

    I would agree with Dannyo there. Pards is being nice to him but his NUFC career is most likely done

    Btw to whoever dmsaid Maigas record is t prolific, he started his career as a winger and played sll his games for Le Mans as a winger scoring 15 in 88… But Sochaux signed him as a striker to partner Ideye Brown and has blossomed as a striker hes actually got a pretty good record.. Hes more suited to the premierleague though so he will score goals thats for sure

    it’s bewildering to say the least. he looked a really good player and miles better than perch and simpson in the air. its a disgrace not even playing him on bench.what has he done to pards to deserve this? its a load of rubbish about pardew playing youths. young fergies been ignored for the mediocre raylor while guthrie and smith even have been preferred to vuckic who looks like a future star. they should be getting minutes off the bench instead we fill ours with perch, guthrie, smith & lovenkrands. old players not even fit for the championship. also the man management pards has shown to forster and ranger is shocking

    hes not given a chance coz he constantly talks bullshit in the hungarian press, things like he doesnt play coz hes not english and young, coz pardew only gives chance to older english players, and stuff like that… typical hungarian, hope he gets kicked out asap, i really hate them

    grew up in hungary, i know what im talkin about… i read his interviews, and i read other hungarian players’ interviews too, they are quite similar, all of them says they dont play coz their coach is a jerk, theyre being hard done, etc. and i experience the typical hungarian things all the time. really, really disgusting people…

    still a very sweeping generalisation. There’s good and bad in all races. this is a football, not political forum.

    yeah, there may be some good things about hungarians, but overall they (we) are bad people… and im sorry for being a little harsh, but i still live in hungary, and had some bad experiences today too, so im pissed off right now. but, to get back to football, i really read his interviews, and saw some pictures of him in the summer, he was fat, and he was talkin about how much better manager Hughton was, and how he got to play for him, and he really said that Pardew only fields old english players coz he doesnt like foreigners and young ones… and i was like wtf are u talkin about dude? he only signed young foreigners in the summer!! so it must be an attitude problem with him

    ( i cant see my older comment so once more…)

    Hdavid: think about Santon not playing vs RTaylor. Pardew rates experience, even if hes not playing in hes main position.
    Kadar played well in the CCC, last time i watched U21 Hun vs Italy where both Kadar and Santon played, and put a decent performance. Santon os better then if, mostly in the flanks, but Kadar in the middle is better than Perch. Motivation can be hard if U cant play and only get useless words. But he still put a decent performance in the U21 side. I cant see Reserve matches but if he got attitude problems why is he captain?
    Pardew isnt counting on him wheter it is about experience performance or attitude i dont know. All is good if they sell him in jan.
    And dont think a few men is = Hungary.

    Perch is SOOOOOO BAD!!! When I watch him play, it looks like he is the younger brother of someone in the team and they just let him play because we were short of numbers… you know that bumbling, no clue look?

    I would rather play my Dad in central defence and he is 60 with new knees than Perch! He is just so POOR

    Mark : well said mate. we are in the same boat. (Some fans got no idea of football keep telling perch “DONE WELL” – even after we concede 7 goals in 2 match)

    Perch is worst than Marcelinho,Boumsong and Bramble COMBINE

    Perch wasn’t as bad as people say in the 2 games he’s come in. Give the lad a chance, and stop berating him every opportunity you get.
    As for Kadar, our defence looked shaky everytime he was in it, and that’s in the Championship! The backroom staff and Pards obviously aren’t impressed at all by him, and I back them, there’s now way he’ll get another chance, unless every CB and FB are injured at the club. He’ll be gone as soon as somebody wants him… if anybody.

    oba: If I remember well Herenveen wanted him on loan at summer. That would have been a good move. If not needed then let him go.
