Scored a few good goals has our Tim and some important ones:
- Goals which set the tone of matches...
- Goals which finish matches off ? Villa in the cup this year for example.
- Goals which secure vital draws ? overhead kick at Stamford Bridge for example.
- Goals which sneak important wins ? Luton away in the League Cup for example.
Look at it this way... Mancs put out weakened team against Hull next Sunday with the Barca match in mind. Hull fighting for their survival get at least a draw. So the Mancs move to 88 points and a goal diff of 43. Liverpool pox a 1-0 win against Spurs with a penalty obtained via another Gerrard dive. They end up with 86 points and a goal diff 49. Sweet, cos what it means is that Our Tim's 87th minute equalizer at Anfield in January denied the Liverpool the 2 points which would have meant them winning teh Premier League on goal difference.
Not only does Tim score in derbies, he scores big important goals!
Indulge me please and let's hope he pops another important one in on 30th.
Come on you Blues.

Er... what parallel reality are you living in? Liverpool failed already. Man Utd ARE Premier League Champions!!!
My God, I hate Liverpool like the rest of us but you have to be pretty twisted to actually construct something like that after the fact... but before the last games of the season have even happened, and justify it in terms of something that has already happened, if you know what I mean.
And then there is the little case of the way the league operates. It's on accumulated results over the entire season. Ifs and buts related to one game... sorry, that's not how it works.

Its one of those pointless but worthy stats to take out if an RS starts getting all self important in the pub...
Favourite Cahill goal? Against Japan in the world cup... school boys own...

The overhead kick at Chelsea was a brilliant piece of invention and grabbed a last gasp equaliser.
I think the best is yet to come so I will pick his winning goal in the Cup Final as my favourite.

One very important thing that Tim does for us is to raise the profile of the club. For all the right reasons, he makes the media take notice of us. Comments like ’the best header of the ball in the PL’ and ’you daren’t leave him alone in the box’ on MotD have become increasingly common. He is recognised as a seriously good player, pleased and proud to play for a seriously good club.
The more we have of this the more likely Moyes has a chance of getting the players he would like to sign, so along these lines, ’best’ might be
- the first goal, and then the second, ever scored by Australia in the World Cup finals
- the fabulous (by any body’s standards) overhead against CFC, which will have been seen across the world.
Favourite goal? Now, that’s another matter.

Steve is saying had Cahill not scored Liverpool would still be in the race with 85 points and an open top bus ride around Goodison Park would still be on the cards.
The only team I want to see doing that this season is ours. Good point, Steve!

Regarding Cahill's best goals... for quality of goal I would have to say the over-head kick vs Chelsea, but one that really sticks in my memory was the one against Sunderland a few years back. I think we hadn't won in 8 games and in the last minute Tim pops up with a great headed goal.
Tim Cahill is gunna score the winner at Wembley, I can feel it in my bones. COYB

As we?re speaking of the RS, the ever gracious FSW summed it all up on R5 today - MUFC beat them because they have more money. Clearly, a summer spend of £45m and a squad of 62 is inadequate ? for this particular inadequate, in any case.

If Pip had not made that tackle on Ronaldo and galvanised the whole team to salvage a point from a game that seemed to be lost, Manure may have had two extra points and could have settled the league last week rather than this.
If Chelsea had been able to get a victory against us home or away, it might have been a 3 horse race for the title! So we fucked up their season too!
And now we are going to fuck it up even more!!

It?s not that it bothers me particularly but the man is an embarrasment to Liverpool Football Club... not that they would see it that way of course... they are too much up their own backsides.

Cahill really is the one player we have who you just "feel" will score and perform on the big stage. Arteta runs him close and the Yak has his moments, but Cahill?s timing with important goals and contributions is impeccable. That?s why I was so shocked he missed his pen in the semi final. For someone who technically is not as good quality as some of our midfielders (Arteta, Pienaar, Fellaini.... maybe even Osman) he is still arguably first name on the teamsheet every time.

I criticise DM but he is twice the man and manager Benitez is. I don't see any reason that David Moyes shouldn't be the Premier League Manager of the Year. Finishing 5th or 6th and reaching the Cup Final is a wonderful achievement with the very limited budget and the long-term injuries to key players...

I think you’re being a bit unfair to WBA there Tom! While I know they are going down they have stuck to their principles and tried to play football. For that I feel sorry for them considering the dross which may be staying up! But I respect them nonetheless.
I wouldn’t want to inflict Benitez on them. They would have abandoned their principles long ago. At least they go down with the respect of the ’Football Family’. I hope they come back up next year but with a little more nous in defence.
