Why can't we just accept that cahill is a striker. He doesn't add a whole load in midfield whereas up front he harries he annoys he scores and he has a decent enough range to play other players in. And he is a half decent target man. Lets get him and Yak playing together again and Yak looked good today!!!

because he cant score with his feet. thats why he isnt a striker. sorry, but this is stupid. he plays behind the striker because he is good with his head, can flick it on etc, because he is a good target man, supporting the striker, where he has played for his entire career....

47 goals in 170 games isnt that shit Marco for a midfielder. im also willing to bet that 98% of them have been with his head from set pieces...

Not quite...

Fulham (A) Head
BATE (A) Foot
Spurs (H) Head
Carlisle (H) Foot
Sunderland (H) Head
Wigan (A) Head
City (A) Head
Villa (A) Head x 2
Blackburn (A) Foot


If that grapic's right though he's just as effective with his feet and last season was unusual.

my bad :lol: someone was on about last season though before the blackburn game that his last 10 goals where with his head cos it was a record for goals in a row with your head? i guess i'm talkin shit then not them :lol:

lookin at that maybe it was a league thing cos his goals with his foot before blackburn are in cups..

yeah it was romey but that wasn't before blackburn last season :P

His goal against Wolves was with his feet wasn't it?

Tim is neither a striker or midfielder, and lacks the technique and vision to be a link up player. He is great from set pieces and troubling centre halves. Speaking of which James Vaughan got a debut hat trick tonight for palace, he's a striker, get him fit and have him back asap

If he can't be a striker cause he ain't good enough in that position why has he played up front on his own this season when we have other fit strikers. Let's be honest the only two strikers we have that are prem class are saha and yak. Saha is now injured (again) and so motes has to put yak in. Necks needs to prove his goal scoring as a sub before he can be chosen over a fit yak.

When did he play upfront on his own this season?! Bburn = Saha/Becks, Wolves = Becks/Saha, Huddersfield = Becks, Villa = Becks/Saha.....

Only because we didnt have a recognized striker was Cahill paired with Felli against Utd. Other than that he hasnt played upfront on his own at all, probably not since Christmas when we had noone fit!!!

Australia begs to differ.



Ignore the first goal. The second is a cracker.
