On The Verge Of Something

Tim Cahill vows to bounce back and fire Everton to FA Cup glory.

On The Verge Of Something

Midfielder Tim Cahill is convinced the glory days are on the verge of returning to Everton.

And the Australian has vowed to bounce back from his penalty miss in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final to fire the Blues to glory in next month's showpiece showdown with Chelsea.

Cahill bravely took charge of Everton's first spotkick in the decisive shootout against Manchester United but was left visibly distraught after firing over the crossbar.

Tim Howard came to the rescue, denying Dimitar Berbatov and Rio Ferdinand to book a final berth in a competition Cahill is now desperate to win.

“I felt confident when I stepped up to take the penalty but sometime things go wrong," he mused. "For a split second, I couldn’t hear anything or see anything. I could see the goal but everything around it went blank

“Mentally I feel fine now but hopefully when it comes around to the Cup final, I’ll score the winner and make up for it. But we are there.

“We’re on the verge of something here. We know it’s going to be a difficult game against good players, but this is exactly what you come into football for.

“We’ve done it and I’m going to show how I can pick myself up."

Having knocked out Liverpool in the fourth round of the competition, Cahill was asked if he feels Everton are now competing on the same level as their city rivals.

His response was clear.

"We’re not bothered what Liverpool do. This is all about us," he said. "We don’t worry what they’re doing. They’re obviously a great team and a great football club, but we’re only bothered about Everton and what we do. This is beautiful for our supporters.

“This is what they turn up for. They believe in us and we believe in them.”

Mike CoatesCharles Dickens in Melbourne was full of blue, moreso even than red, and alot of Cahill tops. I saw the reaction of our fans when the miss occurred, but we just sang even more loudly for what was to follow. We kept up spirits and in reality, Tim's miss was Everton's gain! Spurred on, Everton took it all in and made the rest history!! :) Well Done Timmy, Well Done Team. What a memory! :)
