How Will Kadar Get A Game This Year For Newcastle?

20-year-old Hungarian Tamas Kadar is one of Newcastle’s top youngsters, but we wonder how many games  he’s going to get through the end of this year.

Tamas Kadar – top youngster at Newcastle

Tamas has had a difficult start this season, since a hamstring injury forced him out of  all of Newcastle’s pre-season friendly games.

But Kadar eventually made his return against Accrington Stanley in the Carling Cup 2nd round, and was outstanding and very solid for Newcastle in that game, and caught the eye.

It also turns out he got through Saturday’s 1-0 defeat, playing for the Hungarian Under-21 side in Szekesfehervar against Wales, and it cannot be too long before Tamas makes the full Hungarian squad.

But with Williamson and Coloccini in such good form at Newcastle, and Sol Campbell almost fit and Steven Taylor back in about 5 weeks time, we wonder how many games Tamas will get this year?   Not too many.

Kadar has a game in Budapest for the Under-21s against Bosnia tomorrow night, and says he is ready for the challenge at Newcastle.

He told the Evening Chronicle today:

“I’m always ready for my chance.” “I missed all the pre-season games – everything – it has been a nightmare for me.” “I don’t want to get any more injuries – I want to be fit every time, and show the fans I can play in the first team.”

“I’m just working very hard to see what will happen.” “I’m happy to be back.” “It was my first game at Accrington, and it was tough.” “It was the first game that I’d played 90 minutes.”

“And I really enjoyed playing again with the lads, and now I’m looking forward to more games.” “I was training with the lads for the first week of pre-season, and then I got injured.”

“I was working very hard with the fitness coaches so I could play 90 minutes and that is starting to happen again.”

Kadar was signed by Newcastle in January of 2007, just after Kevin Keegan was appointed manager,  and came to Tyneside with high hopes of making the grade quickly at the Newcastle club.

But the 20 year-old has had some injuries, which may slowed down his development just a little bit, but he still shows massive potential and when he’s played for Newcastle he’s never let the side down, and has looked solid at either center-back or left-back.

Kadar still remains optimistic he can get into Hungary’s senior side this season, and even as early as the October 2012 European qualifying game against San Marino, as he told the Evening Chronicle today:

“As I was injured, there was no chance I could play for the first team in August.” “But maybe I will get the chance to make my debut for the senior team quite soon.”

“I was told I was always to play two games for the Under-21s against Wales and Bosnia.”

We cannot see Tamas getting too many games through the end of the year at Newcastle, and think he could be sent out on loan to a Championship side or even a Premier League side, so he can get the first team experience he will need to further develop as a player.

What do you think?

    It’s a long season, in a very competitive league. I am sure he will get his chance.

    kadar is immediate back up for enrique and is currently in my opinion 3rd choice centre half behind williamson and colo. he will get his chance. assuming we play our reserves in cup games then young tamas could be looking at 20-25 appearences in the frst team this season

    Injuries and cup competitions we are not interested in. Why should we want to win a cup? Cups are rubbish. See what team CH puts out against Chelsea. He is almost willing defeat.

    Frankly I am with jimiley in a sense on this one. Whether or not it his intention, there is certainly implication that only fringe / backup / reserve players will play in cup compo’s. I am all for this, as it is usefull experience for these players, and frankly, I don’t care if we go out to teams in League 2 or Conference. The prem is the only priority and we could possibly do without the distraction.

    once sol is fully fit i would like to see kadar loaned to a championship team until christmas as long as we have an option to recall him. it is important that our youngsters get first team football during the season and as long as the team is preforming it will be difficult for that to happen here. can also see vuckic getting loaned once guthrie is back especially now we have ben arfa.

    Agreed Slaz, it is a long season, so first team is important for development, but as you say, only if there is recall option. Lets not have another Lomana LuaLua incident!

    Kadar is a talent, in fact it is difficult to become first term center-back,we have Williamson,Colo,Sol and also
    S.taylor(if he agree to sign the new contract). i think he should try to play right back or left back.he may better than simpson,perch……….

    On a side note, anybody else think given our recent signings that we should perhaps think about switching to a system not unlike Chelsea’s Diamond formation? We now have full backs who are good at going forward, a bespoke defensive midfielder, a good offensive midfielder, wingers who may be better suited to a central role with the option to move out wide, and deploy with 2 forwards? The next question would be who to drop from where, but I suspect it might just work? I am in no way saying the quality we have at our disposal matches that of Chelsea, however, I think it could benefit our players and our game in general.

    G .. if like you say you don’t care about the cup .. I’d give a run out to Tiote, Arfa, Campbell etc and see what they can do .. maybe surprise chelsea ..
    Although I’d like to keep us in the cup .. any route into europe .. no matter how slim is worth trying .. provided we don’t slip up against Blackpool and Stoke ..

    sweendog, it’s not so much an idea of not caring about the cup in general, I just think we have to be single minded about our season, if nescessary, at the expense of the cups. I think putting the fringe / reserve players out anyway, and perhaps playing for a win might be the best way of approaching them. If they do alright, but lose against so-called lesser teams, then they will still come home with no harm done. Some friends of mine already think we are safe this season after 3 Prem games? I think not, I mean, that would be like assuming that Liverpool will be in a relegation scrap come the end of the season? I am optimistic this season, I just hate to see both fans and players becoming complacent.

    Will get his chances. There are the 2 cups, and there will be injuries and players resting, so I certainly see him getting some game time.

    Hes like a young Colo, good defender and likes to play abit.

    If he gets a few games, grows his confidence then im sure he will be a fantastic ball playing centre back in a few years time.

    When ive seen him i havent really noticed him too much, which is always a good sign for a centre back.

    It’s a long season, several players going to get injured, booked sent off suspended, look at the cards we picked up against the dogs, substitutes, Xmas fixture pile up, in fact Xmas onwards is when the clubs without strong back up fall by the wayside. So yes he’ll get plenty of playing time.
