Grew up lucky enough to watch Cannon and Gilbert who I always considered to be our best ever centre halves.

Think I have to reconsider after this season.

Pretty much the complete player. Does the lot. Very composed, great in the air, brilliant positioning and excellent at marshalling defenders around him.

In my humble opinion I think he probably is.

What does everyone else think?

Love him but you'll never beat Thorn and Young...

 


George Courtney, the World Cup referee, everyone is looking at him. When will he blow....?

Blyth and McCormick shouldnít be overlooked along with Roger Hynd

 


Bring back Brolin

Cahill is very good - a great piece of business in the summer transfer window (as was Ayew).
The best ever? I only go back to the early days of Jim Cannon who was immense for us and still gets my vote.

Donít think any of the players mentioned above (I saw them all) are as good as Cahill who is still good enough to play for England. Cahill has played at the highest level and I would say he is the best Iíve seen in that position. How long he can last at 34 is another question? I would say if Sakho was fit they would be the best centre backs this club has had. I question if Sakho will ever play a full season alongside Cahill but Tompkins and then Dann and Kelly are top centre backs and slot in alongside Cahill well.

But thatís a partnership.

Cahill got over 60 England caps. Thorn was never capped for England and Young only got 20 odd caps for Wales.

I know this is subjective but personally I wouldnít take Thorne or Young over Cahill.

We are undoubtedly blessed in this position.

A top draw CB at the end of his career and one the club did well to get the services of . Different eras bring different challenges and best ever contenders but yes hes up there with the best we have had .

To think that Arsenal needed a proper ball winning Center back , looked at Chelsea and took David Luiz. Ha ha. What a joke.

Cahill is mustard, in a two horse race for POTY with the keeper for me.

i love David Luiz in an Arsenal shirt. A cross between Norman wisdom and Basil Fawlty.

Cahill is an Eagle.
