Cahill Is Player Of The Month

Aussie scoops October prize.

Cahill Is Player Of The Month
Tim Cahill

Tim Cahill has been named Everton's Player of the Month for October, after helping the Blues remain unbeaten throughout the month which included a memorable derby win over Liverpool at Goodison Park.

Cahill netted against the Reds and has helped the Blues to their first league win over Birmingham City with a late goal in a 2-0 success.

The midfielder received his award at Liverpool’s Hilton Hotel from Mark Ryder of TW Steel, the event's main sponsor.

The lunch was attended by prominent Merseyside business figures, along with Everton legends Joe Royle, Graham Stuart, Ronnie Goodlass and Duncan McKenzie and Cahill signed autographs and posed for pictures with his adoring fans.

The Aussie told evertontv that he was delighted to win the award after a good month's work.

"It's fantastic, the most important thing is that we've maintained a good run of form after a poor start to the season," said Cahill.

"It's always great to be recognised but most of all it's always great to get points on the board."

Cahill says the goals against Birmingham and Liverpool were important for different reasons but revealed he relishes every goal that he scores for the club.

"I find all the goals I score important. Those goals were fantastic because we were going through a difficult patch and Birmingham was actually our first win of the season," he said.

"One of the most memorable goals with have to be Liverpool because of what it means to myself and the supporters."

Mikel ArreguiAdam, don't get me wrong, it's OK for players to play for their countires, but FIFA and national FAs take advantage from that and hold clubs to ransom taking their players whenever they want. The thing is those players are so good because of the club football they've played, yet the clubs have to let them go for over a month and pay them and maybe get them injured as well. It's all about money for FIFA and national FA, they don't really care about the nation or the fans. There's time in summer to play any tournaments that need be played, it may not be the best time to play them in some places, but look at South America, footballing superpower countries, they play the Copa America during their winter in the middle of their seasons! They addapt without any problem. Appart from the fact that most international players play in Europe nowadays. Just to summarise, for me club football will always be above international football, and I say it as a Spaniard now that we are world champions.

Adam DykeMikel Arregui - you can't honestly expect Fifa to say to every nation / continent in the world these are the only dates you can have an international tournament? It is unreasonable for Fifa to stipulate when a tournament can be held, as it has to take into consideration the seasons of the nation (ie; England is about to hit Winter, while here in Australia we are starting to enjoy our Summer), also the top-flight league in the nation needs to be considered also. I imagine if Fifa has set dates for any international tournament then the World Cup would be the only one that they can say straight out...this is when it MUST be held as it is the only tournament that every nation has to agree to the dates or they can't enter it.... It is a pity to lose Tim for the Asian Cup for so long, just hope that as compenstaion Australia brings home the cup...otherwise it not worth losing Cahill from Everton.

Lawrence SharpVery well deseved ! When Timmy's in good form ( as he is right now ) he really is indispensible... but even if his form dips on occasion, he still remains critical simply because he injects such energy imto the whole side. Well done Timmy, just keep doing what you do... COYB !

Chris BannantyneI'm Australian and I usually back Australia 100% in international competitions. But at this stage I hope we get knocked out of the Asian Cup early so as Tim can return to Goodison. In saying that, congratulations and good luck Tim. Please stay injury free!

Matt TuncCongrats your work.

Mikel ArreguiI thought FIFA had produced a unified international calendar some years ago so that international competitions wouldn't clash with club games. Then again, on second thoughts expecting something sensible from them is like expecting oranges from an oak. So we'll have to get accustomed to play without him...
