Cahill Left Waiting

The 21 year old centre half will see his 3 month loan with Sheffield United end after their next clash against Barnsley, but Cahill is hoping that he can extend his stay with the club as opposed to returning and finding himself back in the reserves.

Speaking to the press he said:

'We are still waiting on contact from Villa.

'My agent has tried speaking to them and so have United but Martin O'Neill holds all the cards and so we will have to wait and see.

'Hopefully something can be decided in the coming week.'

To be honest I think it would be best for all parties if his loan was extended. Cahill is good enough for our first team and after his growth the last few seasons would not be happy to be back behind players like Knight and Davies, especially if MON does (please) move Mellberg back into the middle.

It's far better that Cahill remains happy and gets further experience and doesn't go stale in the reserves.

Why are our players always left out in the cold when it comes to contract negotiatians. The players seem to have to go to the press to get any response from management i.e. Laursen, Mellberg and now Cahill. Surely there should be constant contact between management and the player. It makes the club look in a really bad light when Laursen and co say they haven't got a scooby as to whats going on or where there future lies!!

Everyone has to proof that they deserve a new contract. Not many of our players are good enough for the next step up

I personally dont think that we can include Gary Cahill in that assessment though supermansfoot. I'll be very disappointed if we allow Gary to remain out in the wilderness, and not bring him back into the first team fold at Villa Park. Obviously its all down to MON and his views concerning the player, but this is a young man who I believe should be well and truly knocking on our first team door as of right now, and not off helping Sheffield United's cause.

As our club continues to progress i suspect it wiill be players like Luke Moore and Gary Cahill that are left in the wilderness. While it is nice to see players come through the ranks and push for a first team place if we are going to ultimately be a top 4 team then tough decisions will have to be made, and i very much doubt whether Cahill or Moore could get into a top 4 team anyway.
