I've watched that several times -as many as I can - and it just gets worse to me. The only thing I could say in Cahill's defence is that in normal time its hard to judge the intention. In slo mo its horrific, the worst thing is, he comes flying in, and clearly changes the direction of his head at the last moment to duck into Ryan. Whether on purpose or no you can't say 100% unless you're a mind reader, but at the very least that is an extremely reckless and dangerous challenge.Sad to hear the news about Ryan Mason.
I am still incensed about how Gary Cahill has got away with a filthy, reckless, deliberate headbutt on a player he targetted because he was from Spurs. All the media are using the word "accident", which on the evidence it was not.
Cahill knew he could not win the ball so wanted to hurt Mason, and all the press say he is 'heart-broken'. He should be prosecuted for GBH.
