Football fans want Tim Cahill banned for what he did during Millwall v Fulham

Millwall v Cardiff City - Sky Bet Championship

Tim Cahill made an emotional return to Millwall in January.

The 38-year-old started his professional career at the London club, all the way back in 1998.

He ended up making 250 appearances across seven seasons, where he scored 57 goals, before making the move to Everton in 2004.

And he described making his return to Millwall as 'the perfect move'.

“It’s hard to put into words [what it feels like to wear a Millwall shirt again] – I’m still taking it in now," he said in January.

"I’ve always said that if I came back to England, I’d come home. Millwall is where I learnt my trade and it was the most important learning period of my life – my apprenticeship in understanding football.

“To come home to where it all started, it’s emotional, but it’s happy emotions, because you wish for it to happen, you want it to happen, but when it finally comes to fruition, it’s the perfect move.”


But his fairytale to the club where he started his professional career has not got as planned. 

He has not made a start for the club since making his return. He has made 10 appearances off the bench, which combines to just 65 minutes on the pitch.

He has been booked in four of those.


Cahill came off the bench again against Fulham on Friday night, and he hit the headlines for a quite shocking moment.

Chasing down Ryan Fredericks on the right wing, Cahill went flying into the challenge with his elbow raised.

And his elbow made contact with the Fulham player, who consequently hit the deck with his hands on his face.

That is disgusting. Amazingly, referee Andre Marriner didn't stop play for the incident, and worse still, didn't even give a card to Cahill.

In truth, it didn't even look like the Australian midfielder was even trying to play the ball.

It was without doubt a red card, and he could be looking at a lengthy ban for the incident.

A lot of football fans most certainly want to see that happen, and they have every right to be enraged.
