On Monday we confirmed agreement has been reached with Major League Soccer for the transfer of Tim Cahill to the New York Red Bulls.
The announcement led to the Club receiving a wealth of messages across our official social media channels paying tribute to Tim and his magnificent efforts in the Royal Blue jersey since his arrival from Millwall in 2004.
Evertonians can leave their comments at the foot of this article, on the Club's official Facebook page and also by tweeting our Twitter account.
