The Milwall, Everton and Socceroos icon answers diverse questions about his incredible journey:
How important was David Moyes to your career? As a Millwall player, did you want his West Ham team to fail?
Pete Holland, Essex
Let's not talk about West Ham... but I always want him to do well. He was a massive influence on my career. He's like a father figure to me in the football world — someone I always call on for all of the big decisions. He believed in me from day one, and I felt indebted to work for him. What he did for Everton goes beyond being a great coach: they miss his authenticity and how much he really loved the club. I always say that you've got to be careful what you wish for when you want money and change, as you lose a little bit of the authenticity. And I love him just as much for the way he took care of his players off the park.

"It wasnt meant to be." Interesting he says that thee times
At first, I thought that strange in a fatalistic or deterministic sense, coming from someone who is very much at the centre of his journey. But, for a footballer like him, it's probably a very sensible way of dealing with disappointment — and deflecting blame!!!
Love ya, Timmy. Some great memories.

We could always do with 2-3 of his mentality in the team.
I didn't realise he had clocked up 50 international goals for Oz. Impressive, even if a lot were against Asia-Pacific Ocean teams.

I think Gus Hiddink deserves credit for giving him a more attacking role. David Moyes also noted how Gus used him.

We could do with a Tim-like character now — both on and off the pitch...

The heart and Soul of the team when he played for EFC and someone who wasn't scared of the RS.

I don't think we will ever see anyone with that uncanny ability to win so many headers (and actually do something with them that matters) as Tim Cahill, the timing of his leap was just surreal.
Only shame was that he never managed to win a medal in 8 years with us, he deserved one.

As many have noted, he was one of the best headers of the football in front of goal. Another guy who had an uncanny ability to get his head to the ball was Steve Naismith (remember his hat-trick against Chelsea?).
I believe we have a great header in Calvert-Lewin and then we saw what Richarlison can do yesterday.

I doubt we'll see one quite like him again.

Great guy, great player. An ambassador for the game and the club.
