Gary Cahill has told Colin Tatum of the Birmingham Mail that his recovery is on course. Blimey Colin, that’s got to hurt, a blue nose talking to the slayer of blue-noses??!! Still, better than being a Walsall fan I guess. 😉

Cahill is aiming to return in October explaining ‘I picked up the injury in my right knee in the second pre-season friendly. When I went down I heard a crack. I went to see the specialist initially and he said it was just bruising. I went back training and started running, and it still felt painful.’

Since then he had an exploratory operation that revealed he had torn his meniscus (as if any of us know what that means!)

‘It’s now been four weeks since I suffered the injury, but the surgeon wants me to keep off it for six weeks to make sure it heals. So I’ve got a week-and-a-half before I start running again, which means I’ll be ready to play again in about three weeks’ time. But it can’t come soon enough. I’m desperate to play, especially considering the start we’ve had.’

He also says he won’t rush his return this time because when he has done that previously he ended up making himself worse.

  • Potentially I think our best central defender. Definitely one for the future. Looked very much the part towards the end of last season, and once fully fit he’ll definitely be challenging for a starting role.

  • Whilst Cahills return is great news for the squad this is my thoughts on the pairing in central defence. For those who think that Laursen is just a big stopper, you are so very wrong. If he plays he gives the team so much more. He reads the game. He gives
