I've had enough of him. He still backs off against strikers, very amateur. Doesn't he know that at some point you've got to make a tackle? I hope Guus knows all about this fraud before he starts backing off against fucking Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

not necessarily a tackle, but merely standing your ground - especially inside the box - is the way to go.

I understand, but what frustrates me so much is that he would back off all the way into the net if he had to.

We badly need a proactive defender.

yeah ! like I wrote on the other thread that would even help the midfield too! a guy who can tackle and intercept high up the pitch and carry the ball with confidence (and technique) forward, joining the midfield. The other one to cover we already have (Zouma).

John Stones then? Marina managed to fuck that so hard it almost offered her the role of chief executive of a major European club.

4 years was probably 1-2 too long but it's his last big contract and he wouldn't have been advised to accept less. From our perspective, the plan was Zouma and Stones as first choice, so with JT retiring sooner rather than later an English-qualified, experienced player on moderate wages as backup isn't the worst thing in the world.

I'd imagine JT will see out Cahill because he has the advantage of being a legend of the club and being a better CB.

Lol very debatable. Lampard, Drogba, etc?

As for being a better CB, that might be true now but the declines will be telling.. Especially considering that Terry is much older.

Chelsea’s Gary Cahill wants to leave club to save Euro 2016 dream

England centre back Gary Cahill is so frustrated by a lack of first-team football at Chelsea that he wants to leave the club in an attempt to safeguard his international place at the European Championship in the summer.

If true, then I supposed one can understand his concern but if he's really good or at least target to be good, then he should look to do better and aim to win back his place in the starting XI.

On the other hand, is every player like going to quit a club because of concerns over starting position for their national side for a major tournament? I understand players are frustrated over lack of playing time but it seems so short sighted for them wanting to leave because of one tournament.

He's behind Kurt Zouma in the pecking order it seems but this is a very short sighted decision if legit. I can't imagine any of the top clubs in the league coming in for him, he'd probably have to settle for the likes of Loserpool or the spuds. 

Can't see us letting him go unless we have someone coming in, letting him and Ramires (two decent squad players) go with such little time left in the window won't happen I believe. Maybe at the end of the season he will be off and I wouldn't mind it as much.

Unfortunately for him if any Chelsea fan had to choose between John Terry and him JT would win every time. He's alright but he's nothing special and could be easily replaced by moving Iva into a back up CB role for example.

Yes, but John Terry is 35 and next season should not be starting regularly. Cahill might have lost his place but it is vital we keep him on board.

I don't mean to be cruel or disrespectful to Cahill in any way, but if this is actually true, I'd regard it as very good news. 

This is nothing against Gary himself who has been an excellent servant to the club and has helped us win a lot in the past four years, but we NEED to sign a top center half in the summer; someone who can partner Zouma and become a long term solution. Cahill leaving would ensure the club would go out and do just that instead of trying to rely on a JT on the decline or Cahill himself who just isn't good enough to be first choice.

That said, his departure would leave us with a problem to solve regarding the homegrown quota and we might be forced to do something radical like, god forbid, actually give playing time to some of our youth products..
