Don't think he's done much wrong recently and some comments have been harsh, but there will be no arguments tonight.

He’s brilliant. Doesn’t let the team down ever and covers so many positions.

Big drop off when Neco came on.

One of the best performances I've ever seen from him and that's saying something considering what he's done and won for us. Take a boo.

I thought those sort of performances were behind him tbh, so happy to be proven wrong. Daft to have doubted him. When filling in at LB he has stunted our performances imo but he's much better on his natural side, playing those balls infield off his right foot. Brilliant tonight, love him.

Same here. I think the fact that he knew his side was going to get targeted probably spurred him on more. He completely dominated their game plan. Was gutted when he had to move to midfield.

He was great, I'd have him as the RB until Trent is fit again.

When the team attacks he's basically back in the very familiar position with which he started his career in, the old fashioned right midfielder in a 4-4-2 do I think it suits him we'll as his crossing is an asset.

Teams will target him on the counter but Matip also did pretty well to snuff out these situations yesterday.

Credit where its due - he was superb in both roles yesterday. Id play Neco tomorrow and keep Milly for the weekend. With no crowds you can hear him shouting all over the pitch - he is some professional......he sets the tone

Yeah I'd written him off. But that was a fantastic performance. I think he looks more out of place when he comes on in midfield as he struggles to get up with the pace of the game. I also think it helped that Leicester were fairly passive. I think his best trait is what be brings to the party off the field. Mr Professional, how good an example for the young players. Experience again is invaluable. Best free signing we've ever made. I wonder if he intends to get into coaching? He'd never make a manager imo but as a coach who knows.

I thought Milner was excellent on Saturday night. Set the tone for midfield dominance. You just cannot write this guy off he keeps on delivering. Should have scored though.

And showed the value of his versatility, moving to left back when Robbo went off.

Id say he is our second best LB. Im not convinced by Kostas.

He was really impressive. Still got it. Although he should have scored in the first half

Imagine he was 27 again, he'd be brilliant with Thiago and Fabinho.

So who's the next Milner, Harvey Barnes maybe?

I think that he tends to have good games when he's had a bit of a break, he still seems to have the fitness to play a couple of games a week but his performances tend to be better when doesn't.

I wonder how long he has left... given that he can play multiple positions, hes a leader, he always puts a shift in... I could see him being here at least another 2 full seasons, if hes happy to stay and play less and less of a role..

When you consider the likes of Moreno, lallana, Lovren - all relatively big earners who didnt feature much in the last year or 2 of their contracts, its hard to imagine we would be eager to move Milner on. While hes not been a superstar, hes been so important to our success over the last few years, and feel like he still has a lot left to contribute, yet. The way hes going, he could get a testimonial, one day!

Totally agree with you if Milner wanted to stay on.

However, he is on a hell of a wedge considering we signed him on a free transfer. LFC won't offer him the same money so he will have to take a hell of a hit financially. If he went somewhere else on a free transfer, then it is likely that they will pay him some sort of signing on fee.

I think Leeds United might be tempting for him.

But perhaps a player-coaching role at LFC would also be tempting for him???

That's a hell of an offer

Milner’s contract expires next summer and he’ll 36 and a half years old by then.

He’s made a great contribution to the club, but we’re squeezing every last minute out of him at this point and we’d be mad to offer him another playing contract.
