David Eyres: Burnley had hand in nurturing ace Cahill

Lancashire Telegraph: Gary Cahill during his Burnley days Gary Cahill during his Burnley days

IT will great to see a former Burnley player line up for England tonight, and I’m sure Gary Cahill can handle the occasion.

Gary came to Burnley and really impressed at Turf Moor. He later went to Bolton and had a couple of really consistent seasons.

No disrespect to Bolton but he was always going to go higher than that and play for a bigger club, and he has done that with Chelsea.

Gary’s time at Burnley shows the value of the loan system. You saw with Joe Hart, too, when he went to Birmingham and it launched his career.

When clubs think they have a player with potential they send them out on loan to see how they handle the pressure of first team football.

Gary handled that really well at Burnley when he was on loan from Aston Villa back in the 2004/05 season.

I’m sure he would say how appreciative he is of the chance he got at Burnley, and how much it helped him kick on.

The next couple of weeks will be the biggest pressure he will have faced, it’s a step up to another level but I’m sure he can cope with that just like he coped with the step up as a youngster at Burnley.

It would have been great to see Jay Rodriguez at the World Cup too and I think he would have been pushing to be in the squad if he hadn’t got injured.

But at his age, time is on his side. I’m sure he’ll be at the next tournament.

Maybe Craig Dawson could be at the next World Cup, too, and I hope that Burnley are able to sign him from West Brom.

I knew him when he was at Radcliffe Borough and he went on to Rochdale and scored quite a few goals there before getting his big move to West Brom.

He hasn’t played a lot at West Brom for whatever reason, but he has played for England under 21s and if he can cut mistakes out of his game I think he can go on further.

I think the chance to come and play regularly in the Premier League for Sean Dyche is probably something he would like.

At his age it would be a no brainer of a decision for Burnley. He would be a good signing.

Wow, there's not much going on at t Turf is there, maybe we could have a plaque erected, Gary Cayhill once played here.
It would hang nicely next to our we were eighth in Europe after winning one game plaque that the tour buses regularly drive past, on their way to the soup kitchen

"It will be great to see a Burnley player line up for England tonight"....How long was he there for, 5 minutes? Another line that made me laugh was "No disrespect to Bolton but he was always going to go higher than that and play for a bigger club"

What it should've been is "No disrespect to Burnley but he was always going to go higher than that and play bigger club" I mean everyone knows that even Bolton are a much bigger club than Burnley! lol

Pity Tolkien is around anymore to write your postings for you, you are such an invert. Which of you to wrote this one by the way? I'll bet you don't actually know do you. Be brave. Have a guess.

Troll watch 15 June: same person posts then clicks to likes his own drivel. Freud would link this to early childhood and in particular a focus on excretion. But this is a pattern across posts claiming to be from BRFC fans. That is, all the comments on all the BFC news cannot be from one obsessed multiple ID holding individual who spent too long looking at or playing with his poo. Could it be that as the single club now able to offer English players an opportunity to showcase their ability, that fans of our favourite comedy club have become desperate, shared grief expressed as collective obsession. Yes, the trolls hover, as the clarets soar. England's future is here in Burnley, all that's on offer down the M65 is envy.
