Gary Cahill

With no sign of Tomkins or Sakho being back anytime soon I am so very very happy we got Cahill in!

Really happy he’s here. So much less stressful than it could have been

Agreed. Also think this signing has gone under the radar in terms of significance. Cahill is not old and heís a top footballer whoís won things at the highest level. If all fit I would expect to see Cahill and Sakho start

But now Ryan Inniss won't get his chance after 37 years waiting in the wings.

It's amazing how dismissive fans are with an instant reaction, but given time it's also amazing how opinions are swayed the other way.

Cahill's interview on Sky later will be a good watch and will only reassure further for the fans what a top pro we have on our hands.

Cahill is one of the best transfers in the premier league this window. Big, powerful, tackles well, good in the air, a specialist at defensive set pieces, a leader on the pitch and enormous experience. 33 isn't particularly old for a centre back.

As per most people, could not agree more. Absolutely delighted with Cahill. Think it will turn out to be one of the best signings of the Transfer window. It may well also turn out to be essential as Dann's abilities fade and if Sakho starts up again about a move for Champions League football.

Just watched the video and now want him in the team! He's absolutely gagging to play and will use last season's lack of playing (which clearly upset him) as strong motivation. There's no doubt we'll benefit from the hunger he has now as a result of last season.

I'll admit I wasn't much of a fan of his before (and a bit meh on his signing) but he comes across very well in that interview and I'm already happy to admit being wrong despite him not having played yet!

Roy also mentioned in his press conference yesterday the positive impact he'd had already. A great signing it seems for several reasons. I think he may well start tomorrow.

Hang on, Dann is 32 and Cahill is 33.

Why is Dannís age going to cause his ability to fade but the older Cahill isnít that old for a centre back?

I think with Dann the issue is less age, and more how much his injury has taken out of him. In his outings last season, he looked a shadow of his former self, and while he looked much better last week, I think there is probably far more of a question mark over Dann's ability to get through another couple of seasons then there is over Cahill's

That, and of course, a "peak" Cahill was probably quite a bit better than a "peak" Dann. Therefore Cahill can drop off more from his peak and still do a job than Dann can

The only problem with this is that Cahill is a right sided CD, so he won't take Danns place.
He doesn't like playing left side at all

He’s played on the left of terry, Christensen and Luiz for Chelsea and left of stones for England. He’s played on either side of the Center backs in a 4 and across a back 3.

He might prefer right side, I don’t know.. but he has and can play on the left. I was sure I remembered him that side for England and google showed he has played there plenty
