James Milner No Go
Newcastle United boss Glenn Roeder has categorically stated that he does not want to lose players and says despite the rumours, James Milner is very much in his plans.
The winger had a season long loan at Aston Villa and we were linked with a permanent move for him before we all remembered Villa have got no money!
Roeder said: 'Rumours are a daily thing in football - that is all they are. It is not just James, there are rumours about several other of our players. I am trying to add numbers, I do not want to lose any players, we cannot afford to.'
'James has been involved in all three of our pre-season games, is very versatile and so there would be no reason whatsoever for me to want to lose James Milner. But you cannot stop speculation and rumours - it goes with the territory of this football club.'
So there you go folks, no Milner. Don't think we expected it to happen anyway did we!?
