James Milner created more chances against Aston Villa on Saturday (7) than any player in the PL at the weekend.
David Silva and James Milner are complete opposites on paper. On the pitch, however, they are the perfect pair.

Said it before and ill say it again I'm a big James Milner enthusiast
Don't struggle with David Batty, relax with James Milner and Fabian Delph.

James Milner looks like the quintessential red coat
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini criticised Chelsea's "small team" mentality and said they played like Stoke City during their tense 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. Much like last season's masterful 1-0 win at the same venue, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho opted to play three midfielders to negate City's array of attacking players. Ramires replaced Oscar and started alongside Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas to counter the hosts midfield which contained powerhouse Yaya Toure, the creative David Silva and the energetic pair of James Milner and Fernandinho. Pellegrini, however, was critical of Chelsea's tactics after Frank Lampard rescued a late point for the champions against his former club following Andre Schuerrle's opener. "It is not a result that I want, not what we deserved but the game was very similar to the game against Stoke," the Chilean told the BBC. "Ten players defended their own half, they scored a counter attack and they continued to defend until the end. The result is not ...

Frank Lampard nets against his old club, James Milner is man of the match, Leighton Baines scores in defeat
球員評分 Manchester City Joe Hart 6.5 - Not called seriously into action before the goal, largely thanks to the defending in front of him. PABLO ZABALETA 7 - Got through some good work down the right hand side and teamed up well with James Milner. Rash tackle for second booking. Vincent Kompany 8 - A super example of leadership and intelligent defending from City’s captain. Won his duel with Diego Costa. ELIAQUIM MANGALA 7.5 - A debut for the new signing and an impressive one, too. Looked like he had partnered Kompany for years. Aleksandar Kolarov 7 - Not always the cutest defender but doesn’t make mistakes either. A solid afternoon. FERNANDINHO 7.5 - City’s most important holding player, the Brazilian was terrific again here. Yaya Toure 7.5 - Much improved after the horrors of Munich but couldn’t get forward effectively once City had ten JAMES MILNER 7 - An under-rated player by many people but came in and did a good job here. Delicate touch to set up equaliser. Edin Dzeko 7 - Relishing in a ...
This is why you let the football people do the football. Jose Mourinho did not recommend releasing Frank Lampard. The club made a decision. And the club was made to pay. Chelsea were heading for another important victory at the Etihad Stadium. There was five to go and they were closing the game down, as they had done for the other 85 minutes, shutting Manchester City out, frustrating them, blocking off every avenue of attack. The ball forward was speculative to say the least and was met by James Milner, squaring at full stretch on the volley. From this unlikely scenario, magic occurred. Frank Lampard arrived, late but perfectly synchronised as ever, and struck his shot past a defeating Thibaut Courtois. How many times had Chelsea's faithful seen him do that?
Tactical Review: Manchester City 1-1 Chelsea BY KEITH SATUKU Manchester City tactics: This was a must-win game for Manuel Pellegrini and he boldly set his side to attack Chelsea from a variety of sources. In addition to City’s intricate play through the middle, Pellegrini started with Aleksandar Kolarov at left-back in place of Gael Clichy to take advantage of the Serbian’s quality crosses into the box. In possession, both Pablo Zabaleta and Kolarov had to push forward to provide width in attacks but with slightly different offensive roles. While Zabaleta needed to link up with James Milner to create two-on-one overloads on the right flank, Kolarov needed to just push forward and use his exceptional crossing ability to provide service from the left flank. Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala had to hold a high line at the halfway line to keep play in the attacking half. In midfield, Yaya Toure needed to drop closer to the central defenders in the centre circle to dictate play from a deeper position, t ...

James Milner believes that his club can have a great impact on Champions League this season: James Milner. James Milner believes Manchester City are now ready to compete on the European stage ahead of their opening UEFA Champions League group game. City are competing in the Champions League for the fourth consecutive season and start their latest campaign away to Bayern Munich on Wednesday. The club’s first two forays into the competition were ended at the group stage before City lost to Barcelona in the first knockout round last season. After winning the Premier League title for the second time in three years last term, Milner feels City are slowly getting into a position to eventually win the Champions League. "Being the club that we are, and with the players that we have, winning it is the ultimate aim,” said Milner.

What's the common link between Denis IrwinEric Cantona, Mark Viduka, Rio Ferdinand, James Milner, Aaron Lennon, Danny Graham, Jake Livermore, Alex McCarthy, Micah Richards, Andros Townsend and Connor Wickham?
The German team that annihilated Brazil today had 6 players that won the Uefa u21 final against England in 2009. Fabian Johnson also on the team is at World Cup with USA. England had only James Milner in their team. That tells you everything you need to know about football in the UK & Germany.

England unlucky to go out Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho has come to the defence of England's World Cup campaign, saying Roy Hodgson's side "played well" and are unfortunate to be going out. Italy's 1-0 defeat to Costa Rica means England have failed to reach the knock-out stages for the first time since 1958. Vincent Kompany, captain of Belgium and Premier League champions Manchester City, also expressed regret about England's exit, which affects his teammates Joe Hart and James Milner. And former England manager Fabio Capello, now coach of Russia, said he thought there was "a little bit of injustice" about England's exit. Mourinho said England were "not lucky" in the draw which pitted them with two other former world champions in Italy and Uruguay, and they were also unfortunate in the way the games turned out. "From the best three or four matches in this competition, England was present in two. It means that England did well, played well, competed well," he said. England "was not afraid of Uruguay, was not ...
Leicester city have placed an offer, which is undissclosed for Manchester City midfielder James Milner.
Defeats against two former World Cup champions booked the plane ready for England before the knockout stage on the brink of World Cup oblivion. Though pre-tournament worries may have focused on a new, appealing generation of emerging young talents and their lack of international experience, it was ultimately Roy Hodgson’s seasoned captain Steven Gerrard who disappointed and downhearted the most. Steven Gerrard was worse than anonymous against La Celeste,heading the ball into the route of Luis Suarez to deny England a crucial point in Group B with his route one winner, but it wasn't his first massive blunder of the career, was it? In the build-up to Suarez's first goal, Gerrard fluffed a tackle to allow Nicolas Lodeiro to steam past him, even after he had initially managed to get his foot on the ball. His challenge proved to be too feeble to stop Suarez in his tracks and Gerrard was left sweating to find his footing to react, let alone keep up with his Uruguayans. Gerrard is not a natural holding mi ...
I suppose it's dead easy to point the finger at a young team, that we never really expected to get out of the groups anyway, and that heat and humidity must of been terribly uncomfortable for the poor lads, hardly enough time to practice any set pieces... especially with all that product endorsing they had to f**king do...!

Painful for England. David Silva, Joe Hart and James Milner all guaranteed to return home early from the World Cup.
(It hurts to read this. Some of the points I agree with. Let Stevie G get a long rest and be ready for the Liverpool Season to come. He has been unfairly held up as England's reason for dropping out of the World Cup. If that is the case, why isn't anyone blaming the defence, and also, in my opinion, wasting the talents of a youngster on the bench by playing Rooney. Sterling, in his first World Cup match showed a lot of promise in that position, but NO, it had to be given to Rooney. Why? You may well ask that question. I see nothing in that player that would let him into the Liverpool team, let alone the England team. Roy should have played Sterling in that position, and he should have let Henderson go forward, pressing, as he does for Liverpool. Henderson followed orders and retreated behind the half-way line, after each of his forays into enemy territory. A Henderson, pressing the opposition, would have changed the outcome of that game. We musn't forget here, the brilliance of our Luis, but really, to bl ...
Quote of the day: "I said to Gerrard It was just like watching Liverpool when you set up Suarez. He said This really isn't the time for jokes, James. I said Ok" Boring James Milner

Do you think it is good news that Joe Hart and James Milner are joining David Silva on the plane home from the World Cup early?
With people clamoring for Rooney to step down and Gerrard retiring, it is time. England captain James Milner
Goodbye Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Glen Johnson, Phil Jagielka, James Milner, Rickie Lambert, Ben Foster, Leighton Baines and even Wayne Rooney. The time has come for a team built around Ross Barkley, Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge, Jack Wilshere Theo Walcott, Kieron Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Luke Shaw, John Stones, Jon Flanagan, Will Hughes and Saido Berahino. Time to breed in the new blood for the 2016 Euros.
Where was Frank Lampard, James Milner? Im sure they would have turned England's fortunes around. Great players with nerves and experience to kill games of such magnitudes. Hogson has never won anything major before, why expect him to start now? "Raheem Sterling and Ross Barkley" good players but nothing out of the extraordinary , Sterling played well against italy but flopped hard against Uruguay. They Dont come close to plays like Hazard , Pogba, Verratti etc at least for now.
I don't know how many of you guys noticed. England is not playing the best soccer that we have seen many times, but is nice to see that all the players that were there today are currently playing in the English Premier League. Something that I think we can't see in any other team in the World Cup. Different players which play all the year, one against each other, that are playing and fighting together for the same objective. Joe Hart (Manchester City) Glen Johnson (Liverpool) Gary Cahill (Chelsea) Phil Jagielka (Everton) Leighton Baines (Everton) Steven Gerrard (Liverpool) Jordan Henderson (Liverpool) Raheem Sterling (Liverpool) Danny Welbeck (Manchester United) Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool) BENCH Ben Foster (West Bromwich) Philip Jones (Manchester United) C. Smalling (Manchester United) Luke Shaw (Southampton) Ross Barkley (Everton) James Milner (Manchester City) Adam Lallana (Liverpool) Jack Wilshere (Arsenal) Frank Lampard (Chelsea) Rickie Lambert (Liverpool)
Glen Johnston is officially the worst right back in the world! No caring bout his assist, James Milner should've been playing instead
R Hodgson who Hart in Henderson, Lambert be they Baines, James Milner come, Jack Wilshere be done, Oxlade as it is in Chamberlain. Give us this day our Danny Welbeck, And forgive us this day our Phil Joneses, As we forgive those who Phil Jones against us. Raheem us not into Glen Johnson, But deliver it to Stevie. For Wayne is the Lampard, The Sturridge and the Barkley. Lallana Lallana, Our Men. Let's go lads!

Phil Neville's commentary sounds like the James Milner parody account
England - Italy Preview: Three Lions after revenge for Euro 2012 exit Raheem Sterling's expected inclusion in Roy Hodgson's line-up is likely to open up the game in the Amazon jungle of Manaus For the many anticipating a slow, cautious opening to the World Cup for England and Italy in the much-discussed humidity of the Amazon jungle, a careless error by Gary Neville on Wednesday will come as a breath of fresh air. It was expected that the essence of the Three Lions’ gameplan would be to shackle Andrea Pirlo, with perhaps James Milner deployed in a midfield role, to prevent the Juventus metronome from dictating the game from the heart of midfield. With Italy’s reputation as slow starters (they have won just one of their opening games in their last five major tournaments), the fact they have drawn more than any other country, and with a defeat far more damaging than a stalemate to start the tournament, it was hardly a recipe for all-action football. But England coach Neville’s notes hint at a fast-pac ...
I'd prefer to hear James Milner and Wayne Rooney to rap John Barnes' rap
WHAT THE MEDIA SAYS: Joe Hart is ready for Italy clash and James Milner believes England could not be better prepared? Read all about it: you think England can win the 2014 FIFA World Cup?
How can he criticise Barkley and then praise James Milner and Glen Johnson?!? is he a *** !!
I'd have him with Barkley not Henderson! England are just tragic all over! Look over at the bench and see James Milner 😳🔫
lol. Henderson is just another James Milner, a runner that's all
Glen Hoddle picked Frank Lampard over Jack Wilshere. I was cursing his Spurs self. Then Ian Wright picked Milner. James Milner. Oh my.
Glen Johnson making James Milner look like Cafu at the moment
UK Sports Paper Round: 'l New Gazza' turns screw on Hodgson Ross Barkley stood out, Wayne Rooney's performance divided opinion and James Milner was a disaster - what the papers thought about England's 2-2 draw with Ecuador. Oliver Holt in the Daily Mirror: Ross Barkley was the pick of the second-string players as he made a series of superb, searching runs. One of those, which started with a nutmeg of Jorge Guagua, led to England’s second goal and strengthened his case for a starting place in Manaus. [Jack] Wilshere stated his case eloquently, too. He has been struggling for fitness since he sustained a foot injury in a tackle with Daniel Agger during England’s friendly with Denmark two months ago. But the longer the Ecuador game wore on, the more influential the Arsenal midfielder became. Wilshere did not produce the kind of performance that demanded inclusion against Italy. But he did show the skill and composure that made it clear why many prefer him to [Jordan] Henderson. Read the full story. - - - ...
JC's More In Depth than Half Time Full Time Analysis. Ben Foster - 6 Few silly mistakes but not at fault for either goal. Hart has nothing to be worried about. James Milner - 2 Absolutely awful, it's almost like he wanted to make us lose. So bad. Phil Jones - 8 Fantastic performance, so solid defensively and even got forward from time to time. Chris Smalling - 6.5 Decent performance from Smalling, did ok when called upon and looked better than he has done previously. Luke Shaw - 5 Disappointing performance, caught out several times at the back and didnt challenge Valencia for the first goal. Jack Wilshere - 3 Another crap display, never got into the game and was sluggish and clumsy all game. Frank Lampard - 5 Disappointing aswell, with that performance it might be his last ever game for England. Wayne Rooney - 6.5 Got himself a goal and got into some good positions but didnt have the exuberance or energy of some of the younger players. Ross Barkley - 8.5 Great performance by Barkley ran at the defence and ...

Safe to say James Milner, Frank Lampard and Chris Smalling would be no where near my team vs Italy...
James Milner and Frank Lampard have been dire
But then James Milner and Frank Lampard are like excitement sponges, just sucking it all up
Frank Lampard and James Milner have been the worst players tonight.
Ben Foster in goal, James Milner at right-back, Rickie Lambert up front & Frank Lampard starting, worst team ever!
James Milner is barely a football player, so what makes Roy Hodgson think he is a right back?
James Milner and Frank Lampard should not be in the squad
Ecuado v England Kick-Off 8:00 p.m. James Milner will get a chance to press his claims for a place in England's World Cup starting line-up in an unfamiliar right-back role against Ecuador in Miami. England manager Roy Hodgson has seen enough from the 28-year-old Manchester City player to try him out as a potential alternative to first-choice Glen Johnson. Frank Lampard will captain an experimental England side which is set to include Wayne Rooney in a left-sided role. Liverpool defender Johnson gave an uncertain display in the 3-0 friendly win against Peru on Friday and if Milner excels in the Sun Life Stadium it may give Hodgson food for thought ahead of the first World Cup game against Italy in Manaus on 14 June. Hodgson said: "James will play right-back against Ecuador. He's got the qualities to play there. There may be moments in the World Cup where we'd like to use him there. "This will give him some experience of that position. He's in the squad as a right or left-sided midfield player and that's wh ...

James Milner will play right-back for an England side led by Frank Lampard against Ecuador
Roy Hodgson is set to place an almost completely different starting 11 to the Peru game, and rightly so. how would you set up? we know that smalling and jones are starting as full backs, with James Milner certain to start right back. I think these friendlies are great opportunities to see where people can play as well as developing partnerships on and off the field. My starting 11; taking into consideration the above as well as Rooney on the left flank would be: Forster Shaw Jones Smalling Milner Rooney Wilshire Lampard Chamberlain Barkley Sturridge What would your starting 11 be? - Mike
Not that keen on judging what women wear either. Its normal to wear something different once you're rich. My wardrobe is like James Milner.
In an England squad with several exciting young players James Milner likely won't set pulses racing, but the versatile Manchester City midfielder could play a vital role in Roy Hodgson's plans in Brazil. The 28-year-old Milner has been part of the England set-up since making his debut Read More...
"L'pool have warned Southampton they will look to other options, notably Xherdan Shaqiri & James Milner." What? Milner instead of Lallana?!
LFC would now turn their attentions to other targets such as Bayern's Xherdan Shaqiri / Man City's James Milner. [Times]
Roy Hodgson would do the English a favor if he dropped Wayne Rooney, played a 4-2-3-1 with Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain behind Daniel Sturridge. And the coup de grace, James Milner at right back - better than Johnson as a player.
I keep reading stories saying City are likely to miss out on Mehdi Benatia and Eliaquim Mangala.GOOD!, I hope we do, we don't need either of them, there is a young lad called Karim Rekik who happens to be a Full Holland International and Matija Nastasic who spent last season injured, they will be back next season, matter of fact, I cannot really think of anyone other than one midfield player we actually NEED.would like a Marco Reus, Cesc Fabregas, Andres Iniesta, Angel di Maria or Isco type to be snapped up for next season and leave it at that. The biggest worry for City this season and the thing they definately need to get sorted and start shaping themselves doing it, is getting contracts signed by existing players, we have got Boyata signed up for another 2 seasons, but the top players like Joe Hart, Edin Dzeko, Samir Nasri, Aleksander Kolarov, James Milner and Micah Richards for me should be given new deals as a matter of urgency, and especially when 3 of them are not in Brazil, there is no reason why ...
