Tamas Kadar finally back in action.

Tamas back to fitness.
Tamas Kadar has finally returned to footballing action after being sidelined since January with a hamstring strain.

Kadar pulled on his international shirt whilst playing for Hungary against China yesterday in the Toulon tournament. Playing at centre-back it looks as though the 21-year-old could be back on track with regard to fitness as he came through the full 80-minute match unscathed.

It’s about time Kadar had some luck and managed to remain injury free for a bit. It seems that ever since he arrived at Newcastle he has fallen victim to one injury after another ranging from hamstring strains to back trouble to a broken leg. It’s time for that to change.

Of course certain injuries can’t be helped, and although I’m not a doctor I would suggest that his injuries so far have just been ‘one of them things’ as opposed to an alarming trend. I mean you can’t really legislate for a broken leg, a hamstring can go at anytime with any player. The back injury may need to be watched though…

At the age of 21 Tamas should be knocking on the door of the first team. In my mind he has the quality to do so, and with Sol Campbell now free from life at St James’ Park there is an ideal chance for the lad to step up into a more prominent role within the first team squad.

With two more games coming up for Kadar I’d like to hope that he can come through them without picking up any more injuries. Next season could be vitally important for the young Magyar so we don’t want to see yet more injury setbacks for the lad.

So what do you think? Should Kadar be given the nod to be moved up to the senior squad full time? He’ll need a space in the 25-man squad this time around so decisions will need to be made. Would you be happy with a central defensive quartet of Fabricio Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Mike Williamson and Tamas Kadar?

Sounds like a plan to me.

  1. Yeah, he should be in the 25 man squad imo. Always looked decent when I’ve seen him. He can also provide cover for left back too i think.

  2. Definitely. Apart from my bias towards Hungarians (was shacked up with a Hungarian swimsuit model for a while. Bunny boiler as it turned out 😯 ) I watched Kadar from close range at Plymouth and he was seriously good; utterly reliable.

    As for fitness, you know what I think: 4 hours of mandatory ashtanga yoga every week for every player. It’s hard to pull a hamstring if you can stick your head on your knees with your legs straight – just ask Giggs and Speedy.

    “It’s hard to pull a hamstring if you can stick your head on your knees with your legs straight – just ask Giggs”

    Or we could ask Imogen Thomas…. Allegedly πŸ˜‰

  4. afraid the lad will only be “cover”in the comeing season,but canny cover all the same,good luck to the lad

  5. I don’t remember him at LB, but he didn’t look the sort. Pure CB material – big, brave, strong, good in the air, and very competent at all the basics. Another good partner to Colo if we need to defend, or Saylor if we need to score goals.

  6. Toonsy – glad someone got in with that one! (I’ll hang ’em up and hand you the bat…) πŸ˜†

    Have you heard Imogen Thomas is launching a pop career now? She’s starting out doing gigs in Manchester….

    —————————

    Yes- very happy. I’ve always rated Thomas- a shame he essentially lost a year last year.

    Let’s not forget Tavernier either.

  8. Just for the record, I can’t do the knees and legs thing. Not without a great deal of pain and some assistance.

    And, for those wondering, I can’t quite do THAT either. Ya sickos. πŸ™„

  9. Very happy to see kadar playing again. Good to see he was in a victory as well. I am perfectly comfortable with him as our 4th choice center back

  12. I think Kadar deserves the nod for a place, and CB is probably our best supplied position after CM. Even our “second string” presumably of next year being Williamson and Kadar should be a decent pairing, good enough to see us through cup matches and emergencies. And if perch is still around we still have options…. πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

  13. AndrewT with the talent the lad has i can see him becoming 2nd choice in the not too distant future , so long as the injuries don’t become a plague . Certainly ahead of Williamson who has done a decent job , but i think will become more of a squad player than first choice this coming season if Taylor puts the performances in week after week that he put in for the last 3 games .

    Indeed. Tea or Coffee? One or two sugars? Milk? πŸ˜†

    So harsh on the poor fella, these expensive and technically sublime individuals need at least a year to adapt to the premier league…

  16. He was breaking Premier League records within 5 weeks, top quality player. Still, you should love him, or we’d have had plenty more Ryan Taylor appearances this season πŸ˜†

  17. Newkie I would rather have Raylor than Perch .
    Batty lad where have you been I was asking about you the other day and Stardy was saying you and DJG where having a reacharound marathon πŸ˜• but I didn’t believe him mate πŸ˜‰

  18. Big Dave-Honestly? Raylor is the better player, in midfield, but at right back? Or for the Spurs game, I’m trying to picture Ryan Taylor on the left against Lennon. I suppose that was Perch’s only decent performance, but at right back they’re both terrible. I’d prefer to play Jonas at right back if I’m honest.

  19. I saw Kadar play for us in the Bristol City match away in the fizzy pop league and he played really well. He dealt with every ball that Bristol threw at us and he was vital for us not loosing in that game. I think he will get a few games for us next season, perhaps in fa cup and league cup games. He’s been unlucky with his injury but I see him doing very well for us in the near future

  20. I see France have been beaten 1-0 by Belarus in their qualifier, wonder if Cabaye or N’Zogbia played any part.

    Im pleased that Kadar is back, hope he can overcome his injuries and take Sol Campbell’s slot for next season.

  21. DJG – I think Belarus 1-0 France was the score the first time they played. According to ESPN, the game today doesn’t start for another 4 hours. But I did read that Cabaye may play a part.

  22. Kadar always seemed like a good prospect, haven’t seen enough of him to justify jumping up and down about him just yet though…unfortunately.

    Would have been great if he could have had a good run of games for Huddersfield so we could see what he was capable of.

      (Quote)

  23. Newkie, I can see the same thing happening mate. Probably just as colo starts to lose it, or he goes somewhere else, kadar would be ready to step in as part of a starting pair. Williamson will be a great backup to have though

  24. According to the mirror, Liverpool are now taking our transfer policy as well as our best players. 26 is their age limit for incoming players so that they can have resale value. Bunch of slimy thieves

  25. Moreno.

    I think it would have given him good experience at LB aswell. I know a lot of people say he can’t play there, but thats why Clarkie took him to Huddersfield and I think he just needed games to learn the position better.

  26. DJG – I’m at work, so if you find a live feed, updates would be great. Especially if Cabaye or Ben Arfa see some action.

  27. Charlie Prince – I doubt Benny will be involved. I fecking hope he isn’t anyway! Imagine the outcry if he got injured πŸ˜†

  28. Not really sure what I was thinking. Maybe let me know if he gets nachos, or whatever they serve at games in Minsk, while he’s watching from the stands.

  29. Ok, peeps – sad question, but how do I set up an avatar for this site? Nothing on the profile screen about it…

  30. Damn. Gravitar pic upload not working on my work machine. Ho hum. POETS day and all that. Off to get shitfaced at a ‘Joey and the Lips’ open air concert in Exmouth. Quality entertainment.

    Have a goodun all!
