Really sad to hear this. Cahill put in a seriously dangerous header challenge (i.e. he attacked it ferociously, having full view, knowing Mason was blindsided and couldn't see the challenge coming).

C***hill .... :mad:
I hope someone flying headers him in a pub somewhere.

It's so sad to see a genuinely talented young player, who'd come through the ranks, have his career ended so early. I'm just glad to see that he seems well-grounded lad, and has a loving family to support him. Good luck, Ryan.

Whatever about a job for him at the club - surely something he'd have to train for and work up to - the club should consider a testimonial for him sometime next year at the new stadium. He was a good pro for us, one of our own, and it would be a really good gesture.

Spurs and Hull could coordinate on it and give the guy a nice last farewell gift from the game before he moves on to any number of opportunities in his life. Hopefully his head injury doesn't affect him in any other endeavour he chooses to follow. Good luck to him.

Terribly sad news. He must be devastated to have had his career snatched away from him so early. Hope he succeeds in whatever he does next. Hope THFC do right by him, as I'm sure they will.

Terrible news.

My abiding memory of him will be him and Bentaleb beating up the Woolwich midfield 3 years ago when we beat them 2-1 (Kane x 2). He ran himself into the ground that day, and you literally could not have asked for anything more.
Hope he has a good insurance policy and is set up for life. Maybe see him back as a match day host or he could even get into coaching - seems like someone with determination so this hopefully will not be the last we hear of him.

Much as I detest Cahill and the club he plays for I seriously doubt he intended to fracture Ryan's skull and end his career

So sad when he had fought so hard to overcome so many setbacks. So much unfulfilled potential. Tributes rolling in on Twitter from his old Academy mates - Townsend, Obika, Pritchard, Archer, Kane - saying what a privilege it was to have played with him.

I hear you mate ... But that's what a reckless challenge can do.
Like someone driving like an idiot. They don't intend to damage anything/anyone, but the likelihood that they will increases.
