Milner is great to have around and a decent midfield general and a massive presence on and off the field.
His ability to cover full back if going to be more and more limited due to lack of lightening pace.

He's a brilliant last 25 minutes player and dressing room motivator. He'd also knock seven shades out of cunts like Ramos if needed too.

Such a great bunch of guys. What an amazing gesture.

Quote:
James Milner got Liverpool's open top bus to stop outside the house of a Hillsborough survivor so he could show him the European Cup.

The moving gesture by the club's vice-captain took place following the end of the Reds' victory parade around the city on Sunday which attracted a crowd in excess of 750,000.

The bus was heading back to Melwood just after 8pm when Milner requested that it stopped outside the south Liverpool home of Andrew Devine.

As for the future, I hope he stays this summer but he's out of contract next so we need to be looking to sort out a replacement this summer so they have a year to bed in. Or rather, replacementS (right back, left back, midfield).

I think he has one more season left before his legs start to go. I think he is adaptable enough to play on, but may struggle to keep a high press going for 90 minutes (although we dont seem to press as much).

Problem is, when he does go, how many players do you need to replace him with? He does a job on both fullback positions.

I cant think of too many midfielders as effective as Milner. He could get a ton of assists without ever having to be flashy, and can run all day, and obviously position and defend really well.

I do think we need to reinforce both fullbacks this summer. Assuming Clyne and Moreno leave, we have nobody else in the squad that plays there naturally... I dont think thats Gomez' best postion. Fabinho can also cover, although I feel he is too important as a defensive midfielder. Are there any kids we can promote?

I think that Milner's role as utility man is going to be difficult to replace when the time comes, obviously most of his game time comes as a midfielder coming on for the last 30 mins or so as the experienced head, to be honest I am not so worried about that role, he will be around for a while and hopefully some of the other guys can take on that responsibility. The full back areas (or lack of cover there) are a massive issue, Milner is capable of getting up and down the pitch (at the moment) has good delivery and he is defensively solid, none of the other options we have there are capable of all that.

Gomez, Fabinho and Henderson can all fill in at RB but Gomez isn't a fullback, we don't want to lose Fabinho in midfield Henderson IMO is probably the best option to cover there but isn't ideal. LB Milner aside there is only Gomez who could possibly fill in in the senior squad, Adam Lewis in the youth side has been mentioned but who whether he is ready or not is a big question. Regardless of Milner's situation I think that we need to bring in LB cover this summer.

I don't get this his legs are going , still one of the fittest players on the pitch for us and putting in performances every time he is out there.

He is brilliant as a starter and a sub.

Would be interesting to see his minutes since he joined City. 9 years of not being a guaranteed starter now. Probably got more in the tank plus seems to lead a healthy life

Millie is the fittest man in the squad and shows no signs of slowing down, perhaps not a 2 games of week player if you were being careful but he is rude health right now

Miner is the fittest and often puts in the most km per game but he lacks the turn of pace to dart past a player, thats why when he fills in as full back we are limited in attack.

fair enough but his game is not about pace and never has been, he is tenacious, he is smart and he is skillful ... there are shades of Carra about him, he almost lifts the players around him by just being on the field. I think we will continue to rotate and he is about as good a squad / 11 player you are going to find right now. He is literally is a managers dream player

I think his technique is very good. I dont think that he could adapt to so many positions if his skills were lacking. He is not flashy or flamboyant though. He can get the assist with a simple pass.

Well said. I agree, imo, he's technically very good, it's just that sometimes people might look at the industry he puts in or his physicality and think that's all he has. He's an all round brilliant professional but on top of an already very talented player.

I was not talking about his technical ability rather there ability to galvanise a team by sheer force of will, he has that, Carra had that and its an invaluable ability

33 isn’t that old, he’ll probably get more muscular through his 30s. It’s the engine room that suffers past 28-29

We'll miss him when he's gone. Wasn't such a popular signing as I recall, but just quietly got on with being impressive.

EDIT: Couldn't resist checking. Very entertaining!

This just makes me wonder how old the person who posted the tweet is.

15...?

As if it is inconceivable that a 33 year old could be in that sort of shape.

less flash but genuine graft. yorkshire born, yorkshire bred, etc.

does he just look good because he is surrounded by mostly world class team mates though

Aye...

It's not much the tweet being posted, it's just that me phone buzzes with notifications from a couple of clickbait articles about how 'LFC Fans React with Astonishment Over Milner Pics from the US'

So here's me expecting some nightclub pics with Milner balls deep in some hooker, and instead its training ground pics of an, understandably, extremely fit footballer who takes his training very seriously in the twilight of his playing career but still a young man in the grand scheme of life.

And we're supposed to drop our shit over some workout pics. Lord knows what the source will think when he sees sections of the general public at a variety of ages younger and older who take their fitness just as seriously as Jimmy.

The vast majority of people who aren't idiots thought he was a decent signing tbf

I hadn't quite realised for just how long we were linked to him. Around 4 years. He's like the English Pablo Aimar who actually did sign.
