Hi all, this is my first post.
I also need help from other Australian Everton fans to find a video clip of a Cahill Socceroo goal from last year.
Why? To show (prove) that Cahill wasn't being rude to Seamus Coleman after his goal against Liverpool. This happened before during a Socceroo match where Cahill scored a goal. A team mate (I believe it might have been Luke Wilkshire) tried to give him a congratulatory hug but Cahill appeared to push him away. Cahill went to the corner to honour his Samoan people, who were at that time recovering from a Tsunami.
After he has given his tribute to the Samoan people, he hugged his team mate, Luke Wilkshire. This video clip was uploaded in YouTube but I couldn't find.
Please tell Seamus Coleman so he does not take offence. I read somewhere here that a team that celebrates together, win together. This is true. I wouldn't like Coleman to think Cahill did not appreciate what he had done for him to score that first goal at the derby.
With Cahill, I find that the fans come first and then his team mate. Evertonians, please go to YouTube and watch some of the games Cahill played for the Socceroos. In the Aus vs Jap game in June 2009, he scored a goal and then gave all the fans a heart sign, his way of saying, "I love you all."
I'm sorry if you guys misunderstood. With Cahill, his celebrations are always for the fans, then his team mates. Maybe Tim has to changed it a bit. Team mates first, then the fans so there's no misunderstanding.

- Germany World Cup 2006, at the end of the game he swapped his shirt with an Everton fan he'd spotted in the crowd wearing the EFC home shirt
- Turned up at the airport in Aus at 5am this year to meet his team mates, even though he was on extended leave
- Met almost 100 Singapore-based Everton (and a few others) fans following a request I made months before via the club even though he was on international duty (and the FFA made it VERY clear to me they didn't approve).
He's one of the most humble people I've met. He may earn money most can only dream about, but he credits it all to his parents who believed in him enough to borrow money to send him to England when he was 17.
I also know how popular he is in the Everton dressing room, and any mis-understanding with Seamus will have been cleared up straight after the game.
He did something similar after a goal for Everton last year, after the tsunami, when he did what we initially thought was a "Hawai'i 5-0" celebration, but again it was aimed at the Samoan people, to show he was thinking of them.
I'm sure a targeted search on YouTube, particularly if you can remember the game, will yield a result.

Never an issue, never will be.

Then again, that passage did highlight two things to me.
1. Cahill has a great arrogance about him. Genuinely believes he's as good as anyone.
2. Coleman seems to respect or fear no-one. Just watching him bollocking P.Neville for misplaced passes is hilarious.
Back to the derby... Coleman was again around Cahill's neck after Mikky's goal so I'm sure there were no hard feelings.

Neil, I thought troll at first but then I thought, anyone who is good at what they do should have some arrogance and should feel like they are the best at what they do.....on the pitch. Off the pitch we all know it's a different story.
