Cabaye Focused On Sunderland – Kadar Gets 3rd Cap For Hungary

Yohan Cabaye is fresh from his appearance last night for France, when they had a good win against Germany away in Bremen, by a score of 2-1.

Yohan Cabaye in action for France last night

Yohan played the first 62 minutes of the game and was then replaced by Alou Diarra, with France leading 1-0 with a goal after 21 minutes from Olivier Giroud.

A second goal from Florent Malouda after 69 minutes made it more comfortable for France, before German substitute Cacau of Stuttgart, hit a consolation goal for Germany in stoppage time.

And the US beat Italy by 1-0 with a goal in the 55th minute from Fulham’s Clint Dempsey, and England looked impotent in losing 3-2 to Holland at Wembley.

And we forgot to mention Tamas Kadar in our report on Newcastle players who played last night,  as Tamas played the whole game for Hungary in their 1-1 draw at home to Bulgaria.

And Hungary were unlucky not to win as Bojinov equalized for Bulgaria with just three minutes to go – and Tamas was booked after 33 minutes of the game.

That was Tamas’ 3rd full cap for Hungary,  but it still looks like he’s the forgotten man on Tyneside,  and he will be leaving Newcastle as a free agent in the summer.

But we’d still like the lad to be given another season to show what he can do on Tyneside, and it’s a mystery as to what happened to Tamas this season.   Anybody got any ideas?

Yohan Cabaye, back from his adventures with France,  will now turn his attention to something that’s really important,  and that’s Newcastle’s next game against Sunderland on Sunday afternoon.

The 26-year-old is already a firm fan favorite on Tyneside,  and he will be hoping to hit some top form after a rather lack-luster (for him) display in the 2-2 draw against Wolves last Saturday.

The 10 times capped French International, who has been a starter for France since moving to Newcastle United last summer, spoke today on the Newcastle United  web-site:

“We have to be focused on this game and work very hard all week to play well and win the game on Sunday,” 

“It is an unbelievable for the fans and for us as well. I hope to win for us and for the fans, because they are amazing.”

“Every game at home and away from home as well the supporters are brilliant.”

“We know what this game means for them. We will be ready and they don’t have to be worried about that.”

Yohan’s central midfield partner Cheick Tiote is traveling back from playing the full 90 minutes for the Ivory Coast against Equatorial Guinea, which ended in a 0-0 and was simply a friendly game.

We will need both lads in top form on Sunday if we are to get the double over Sunderland, and get us a very valuable 3 points.

That will help us stay high up in the league table with 46 points from our 27 league games, the same total we managed in the whole of last season.

Howay The Lads!!

    I have never known much about him, but always thought I was a bright prospect; a shame ’cause we’re so thin this season at the back.

    It does seem odd Jesper….Always heard he was highly rated. He must be doing something to really p*ss pardew off. He’s an international and can’t get a game over perch or willo…..not even one. Very strange

    I’ve always rated Kadar, he looked decent on the few occassions he has played. He was really unlucky picking up the injury on loan at Huddersfield? A good run of games in league one may have got him back into the first team. A new one yr deal wouldn’t be bad idea, but i can see him leaving and getting snapped up by a league one team and progressing from there.

    I heard a rumor once on this blog by some guy born in Hungary; just can’t remember his name. He said he had an attitude problem.

    Some even says he has some phobias that prevent him from performing in front of a big crowd. Just can’t see that as being the problem.

    It’s strange non the less.

    Hungary’s team must be absolutely shite.

    What could they possibly base Kadar’s selection on? Not one person, staff or player has even mentioned him-not even the reserve players on

    He apparently just doesn’t look even interested when training now and he’s being shipped out ASAP-and rightly so.

    If he was still any kind of prospect he would have come in at centre half when we REALLY needed one against Norwich etc.

    Plus Henderson is another who’s leaving this summer, never quite made the step up. Is Stephen Folan still at the club, yet another injury prone cb who’s be listed in the “he’s got potential” list.

    Summer moves for Dunk, Manolas and/or Maguire would give us plenty of young cbs as cover

    SJP wouldn’t be a good stadium for the lad if that’s true Jesper.

    Must be his attitude. Surely he can’t be that bad that he wouldn’t have been used as a sub at some point this season

    I really do hope we bring in a lot of young talent over the summer.

    I know our first team has its flaws and it leaves something to desire, BUT still I think he have a pretty good team – just a bit thin on the quality side.

    thats a good point, i was thinking Norwich was the time to throw him back into the mix and see what he can do. The fact that Pardew didnt do that, must mean he doesnt have the right attitude in training.

    with players leaving, both from the first team and reserves. We probably need about 10 players coming in, 5 quality ones and 5 youngsters to develop. Plus we need Xisco off the wage bill!!!! if we are stuck with him still next season then i’d rather we had him as 4th choice striker than out on loan with us paying the bulk of his wages.

    geordie157, that sounds about right.

    Xisco is 25, so for the sake of his own career, he should just move on in the summer.

    I think those will definitely leave in the summer:




    So we do need a lot of new faces at St. James’ Park 🙂

    Think we mite see loads of players come in between 16 n 18 year old to go in the reserves
    As for the first team we need cb n lb mbwia n Petiers would b my picks also bcoz Petiers can play cb n mbwia can play anywhere across the back 4, defo think there’s something in the corgnet n alfantino rumours then I’d like to get players like jay Rodriguez, matt Phillips, maybe even Elia from juve we also hav to look at the free market with Douglas, hoillett, clynne, manalos all available n diame

    Yea think you can always tell the ones that will make it Vukic always looked a class above similar to the way remi streete does ATM, but there is lot of talent there for me it’s about getting them out on loan to the championship or league 1 for a season n that can b the difference jus look at tavernier now he’s had rave reviews all season n will b a contender for the ryt back spot next year

    Yeah, I would like us to hatch the next Cleverly or Wilshere. A loan move to the right club at the right time can make or break a player I think 🙂

    just don’t see how kadar could be worse than Willo, Perch and simpson. Kadar has pace and composure, all the things those 3 dont. I think i would have an attitude and be peed off if perch got ahead of me, v Norwich being just one example.

    Jesper I finally feel like the club are getting it ryt when comes to producing youngsters jus look how many hav come through the last 10 year I can think of Carroll n staylor n shola, now look how many we hav with ranger, tav, Vukic, abeid, sammi, fergie n a whole host of others who cud make it in the next 2 seasons

    Fans talk about squad depth well for that’s we get it by producing are own look at man utd fergie always has a crop of young players breaking through n hes not scared to play by the time there 20 they’ve played 30/40 games or loans them out like wellbeck n cleverly jus look at them now

    Remi Streete keeps getting mentioned recentlyn and Alnwick is apparently impressing, does anyone know if the likes of Newton, Inman, Moyo are doing well for the reserves. All three i think have been close to the first team squad, but seem to have picked up injuries. Moyo i think was spotted by Carr, so he could push on soon.

    Prediction for Sunday, 2-1 to the Toon and Cattermole to get sent off. Ba scoring both

    Oh and play Jonas on the right and play Fergs left wing. Simo and Santon then have cover, but we also keep pace in the team and have Fergs who can cross the ball! (well i hope he can, as our other wingers rarely put in a decent ball). If we go two up wonder if Pards will shut up shop and bring Perch on

    Im going for a 1-0 win on Sunday with Cisse getting the all important goal in the second half. I just hope we push Cabeye on to support the front two so we can create. Also I really hope we don’t defend too high up the pitch! Remember Fulham and Brighton!!!!!!The only way I can see the scum scoring is if they catch us on the break or a ball over the top to get their forward in behind.Let battle commence and let good win over evil!!!

    I read a piece about Tav today, probably in some local paper in the MK Dons whereabouts.
    They had a U-21 England star playing for them at RB from Tottenham, but Tottenham recalled him, thus MK Dons to Tav on loan.
    MK Dons coach said it was a straight swap, there was big boots to fill and Tav had more than done that.
    The coach really raved about him and there was a few quotes from Tav there too.

    I was in a live web chat with Lee Ryder (a newcastle journalist), and he was asked the same question, ‘what’s happened to kadar?’ he said that he doesn’t give 100% in training and he had great potential that has gone to waste which was probably due to his laziness and lack of motivation. I would love to see him come in maybe as a substitute one day but i doubt we’ll even see that. Its always a shame when a youngster doesn’t reach is potential! Howay the lads, lets batter these mackems 🙂

    But the Wolves game showed why we play a high line. Our defense just cannot cope with balls into the box. Playing a high line we reduce this risk.

    So then, it’s only 3 days until we play the scum. I think o neil will go with his usual tactics. Sit 10 behind the ball and hoof it for sessegnon.
    If he is nullified then they have no real attacking threat. Larsson is only good at fk and crossing, and McLean… He’s ok but hopefully Simpson should be able to handle him

    HBA should start and he will cause that tit Richardson (I still hold a grudge over him after the unthinkable happened back in the dark age) all sorts of problems.
    The only downside is that both our cm’s played midweek and so did santon. we can’t be outran in midfield again. Wolves did this and since the scum have a better midfield than wolves, and rattermole will be up to his old tricks, 5 man midfield is a must from the start.

    Team 4-5-1

    Simmo Willo Colo Santon
    HBA Cabaye Tiote Guthrie Guti

    Later if we are are drawing or worst case losing go 4-3-3 with cisse for Guti and put ba cisse and HBA up front.
