I have in recent seasons questioned Cahill's too good to be true image and supposed loyalty to the club, his pride in representing Australia and 'doing a Beckham' with his charity work which does no harm for the ol' image.
Having spoken with a sports reporter who spent the last month covering the Asian Cup, he is in fact every bit the guy we all would like to believe him to be; he's the real deal. Will he be leaving Everton any time soon? No chance.
But more to the point... despite his outing yesterday, his ankle is bust, he'll be out for a number weeks.

He really does appreciate where he came from and how lucky he is, and regards playing for Everton as a privilege. The fact he's paid a fortune is just the nature of the job (albeit a fortunate side effect!)
Bad news about the injury. He's probably gonna end up suffering in later life at this rate.

In my circle of friends, there is a fair number who have no idea what football is all about and could not care less about the game. Except that is, when Cahill's name is comes up. One dinki di old dear told me her entire sewing circle made up of elderly ladies are keen fans of Tim. In fact, most Australians recognise that Everton and Tim's names are synonymous.
Throughout Asia, in front of a sports mad viewing audience of billions, Tim is constantly in demand for media interviews. In every respect he always comes across as a true gentleman. Where football and Everton are concerned, he is proud yet humble about his achievements. What never fails to please this old bluenose is his absolute loyalty and affection for our club.
Regardless of what Tim may or may not accomplish in future he is without doubt the best ambassador this club has ever had.

I am not too sure about his continued involvement in the current team, time will tell, but he has been a fantastic servant for our club.

No-one has made a bigger contribution to EFC over the last 7 years. True blue legend.

Great player, exemplary attitude. He deserves to finish his career with a medal. Let's hope it happens at Everton.
