Everton FC have got the right blend says Tim Cahill

TIM CAHILL and David Moyes go back a long way. The influential Australian was one of the Everton manager's early - and some would say best - signings when he paid Millwall the unfeasibly modest fee of £1.5m in the summer of 2004. Cahill's reputation has grown considerably since then, but so too has the Everton squad's and he fully endorses his manager's comment that this is currently the strongest Blues squad he has played in at Goodison Park. 'It's a massive statement, but I've been lucky enough to be here the same amount of time as the gaffer and what we do have here is a growth of players young and old and a good nucleus where we can rely on the youngsters just as much as the old players,' explained Cahill. 'Saying old, we're not that old! But it's good that the gaffer can change the team and change the midfield and change the strikers and keep Louis fresh and Yak fresh and me. 'Victor can come in and Jack Rodwell and Dan Gosling. The competition's there, especially at the back as well, so now it's all about how we find a happy medium between now and the end of the season.' That starts against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday and Cahill has warned his team-mates not to underestimate a team which has blown red hot (against Wigan) and ice cold (at Sunderland) in recent weeks. 'I think people overlook some of the players they've got. They do actually play a lot of football,' he warned. 'I think the route one game of playing the ball long and getting in players faces has worked effectively for them, but they mix it up well and we know it's going to be a hard game, but we need to get back on track again and try to get back to winning ways.
