Cahill - Back And Ready To Fight

Helloooo, helloooo, its good to be back, its good to be back!

Gary Cahill, slayer of all things blue, made a welcome return from injury and played the full 90 minutes against West Ham reserves.

Cahill, who has been out since injuring his knee in pre-season, told the official site:

'I was just really happy to come through it. There were a couple of occasions when I was breathing heavily, but that's to be expected. Other than that, it went well. It wasn't a bad game for a defender to return in. Carlton Cole and Marlon Harewood have caused all sorts of problems in the Premiership, so there was no chance of an easy comeback. That was good for me and I though I did OK. I've been out for a few weeks and it has been frustrating, but I'm on my way back now and that's all that matters.'

Adding positively: 'There doesn't seem to have been any reaction and now I've got a lot more hard work to come on the training ground if I want to get back in the team.'

Just need to see Mark Delaney back in contention now, he's been missed.

going to be harder to get back into the first team this season, I think on current form Ridgewell will take some shifting and we also have Laursen waiting in the wings. Lets hope Cahill is in this for the long hall and will be patient, looks an outstanding prospect and could form a great partnership with Ridge over time.

Good to see him coming back but like you say it will be tough to find his way into the first team.

Great to have him back. What a future he has ahead of him. England under 21 international by the time the season is out.
