A lot of Aston Villa fans feel like current Crystal Palace player Gary Cahill would have been a useful asset to have as the club fight to stay in the Premier League.
Cahill joined Crystal Palace on a free in the summer after being released by Chelsea. Indeed, he enjoyed a great career at the Blues and won pretty much every trophy available possible, including the Champions League and Premier League.
Given his experience and the fact Cahill has enjoyed leadership roles with both the Blues and, more recently, the Eagles, perhaps having a player of such stature could have been helpful for a Villa side to have been criticised by the likes of Jamie Carragher. Indeed, Roy Hodgson praised his ‘character’ and ‘desire’ as well as his ‘pace’ and ‘aggression’, which look to be in stark contrast to some of the individual mistakes the Villains have suffered this season.
With that in mind, here is what fans have been saying about the player:
Should of signed him in the summer 🤷🏻♂️

Gary Cahill should never have been allowed to leave and should still be at Villa now

I was there. In the Holte End. Going nuts when the ball hit the back of the net. My all time favourite goal! #UTV
