Gary Cahill Villa Return Due

Gary Cahill Villa Return Due

Gary Cahill has told Colin Tatum of the Birmingham Mail that his recovery is on course. Blimey Colin, that's got to hurt, a blue nose talking to the slayer of blue-noses??!! Still, better than being a Walsall fan I guess. ;-)

Cahill is aiming to return in October explaining 'I picked up the injury in my right knee in the second pre-season friendly. When I went down I heard a crack. I went to see the specialist initially and he said it was just bruising. I went back training and started running, and it still felt painful.'

Since then he had an exploratory operation that revealed he had torn his meniscus (as if any of us know what that means!)

'It's now been four weeks since I suffered the injury, but the surgeon wants me to keep off it for six weeks to make sure it heals. So I've got a week-and-a-half before I start running again, which means I'll be ready to play again in about three weeks' time. But it can't come soon enough. I'm desperate to play, especially considering the start we've had.'

He also says he won't rush his return this time because when he has done that previously he ended up making himself worse.

What is a meniscus? There are two menisci in your knee; each rests between the thigh bone (femur) and shin bone (tibia). The menisci are made of tough cartilage and conform to the surfaces of the bones upon which they rest. One meniscus rests on the medial tibial plateau; this is the medial meniscus. The other meniscus rests on the lateral tibial plateau, the lateral meniscus. What does the meniscus do? These meniscus functions to distribute your body weight across the knee joint. Without the meniscus present, the weight of your body would be unevenly applied to the bones in your legs (the femur and tibia). This uneven weight distribution would cause excessive forces in specific areas of bone leading to early arthritis of knee joint. Therefore, the function of the meniscus is critical to the health of your knee. So in English its a torn cartilage

Cahill could find it difficult to break into the side if you maintain your current form.

He's only a young lad, he will have plenty of oppertunity to play when we are going for a top 6 place, FA cup and Carling cup. Its a funny old game.

Potentially I think our best central defender. Definitely one for the future. Looked very much the part towards the end of last season, and once fully fit he'll definitely be challenging for a starting role.
