Milner Talks OFF

The official site of Newcastle United have announced that they have recalled James Milner from talks with Aston Villa.

The Geordie winger was in Birmingham to have talks over a permanent move from the Magpies having enjoyed a season long loan last season at Villa Park.

The NUFC site said: 'The winger had travelled down to the West Midlands on Thursday for discussions with the Villa Park outfit, but instead he will now return to Tyneside' but give no explanation as to why they have acted like this.

Still, when you have a club run by a clown, what do you expect?

I feel sick
Surrey Villan
Poor lad, he is being messed about a treat. He must really appreciate his club doing this. Get back on the phone Martin you have got about 7 hrs to find a replacement.
tylervilla
I can't see James wanting to stay at Newcastle for his whole career now, can you? Not after this fiasco. Patience, I am told, is a virtue..
The Usual Suspect
Is it me or does everyone hate NUFC????
PaulG
I can't be bothered hating them, they are too inconsequential
Villain Of The North
Milner would have freed Gabby to be the 4th striker if we needed to. This now means we're short up front.
Gazvilla
Fair enough you's have been messed around but he is still our player, and for all you's have been messed around i think we are in greater need of someone creative! Fair enough about the clown comment tho!
Geordie-Jackie
Hope they go down now!
baros10
then we could him for less
Bobbymsb
Micky Mouse comes to mind when dealing with NUFC
Donzarra
Done it deliberately, there *****ed that they lost to us so av tried to stop us making any more transfers. haha their club is a joke and they will go down if they continue with their defence. i feel sorry for milner, he doesnt want to be there.
groseyboy
He's still your player Geordie-Jackie but probably only for the next few hours while he's being horse-traded in another deal perhaps with Middlesboro. I hope he turns them down, then they'll have achieved nothing. Or will he go meakly sprouting that he always wanted to join Boro, such a massive club with ambition.
Surrey Villan
roeder is one of the inept football managers i have ever, ever come across. tactically naive, bad signings. bought duff even though they have two left wingers yet buys no defenders. titus bramble is pretty much the worst top flight centre i ever remember seeing. martins is going to flop big time!!! now****ing about their top young talent. great management again there glenn
prepared
NEWCASTLE ARE A BUNCH OF WAN*ERS GLEN ROEDER IS A TO**ER AND THE CHAIRMAN IS A FAT PIECE OF SH*t
samtozer
samtozer you should be ashamed of yourself, its FAT PIECE OF SH*T you dropped the last T to lower case
steff_the_villan
Thanks steff the villan it was a typing error!!
samtozer
haha excellent
son_of_cher
Fan pressure maybe? A higher bid from elsewhere? guess we'll find out in a few hours time. Looking past the disappointment though, which I guess we are going to have to, it does leave us short of options, particularly when loss of form, injuries, suspensions hit, as sadly, they are very much bound to.
glensider
Cheer up. The window opens again in 4 months and by then a more reasoned set of dealings can be done. Yes its disappointing but lets move on.
Gordonsleftboot
please calm down my fellow villans, everything will be OK, whatever happens its already better than how many seasons?????? at least we know we have something to look forward to, and thats on top of the fact that we were lucky enough to be born with claret and blue blood in our veins. life does not get much better, Rejoice
steff_the_villan
hold on.....hold on a bit its one thing for us to call our own but for some sad villan to call ours is not on ........ James Milner is ours to sell ....as in every sale its a bit like being in a chain buying a house if part of the chain breaks then the sale doesnt continue. as i understand it the milner money would have been spent else where.....the chain has broken down so we no longer need to sell milner end of story dry your eyes
toon4ever
toon4ever shut up you gay boy. All you Newcastle fans make me sick saying you have much better team than us, well toon4ever listen, you haven't. 2-0, Keep saying it in your head.
randy.stand
I'm not to disappointed i do rate Milner but gabby looks the most exciting player with had on the wing since Tony Daley
the flying villain
hold on.....hold on a bit its one thing for us to call our own but for some sad villan to call ours is not on ........ James Milner is ours to sell ....as in every sale its a bit like being in a chain buying a house if part of the chain breaks then the sale doesnt continue. as i understand it the milner money would have been spent else where.....the chain has broken down so we no longer need to sell milner end of story dry your eyes .... strange ive read it again and no where do i mention the phrase "much better team " ...however now you mention it thanks for reminding me of my error MUCH BETTER TEAM
toon4ever
yes toon4ever it is an error to think you have a much better team, but if you mean much better than a school or pub team than mmmmmmmmmm well yes you could be right, possibly,
steff_the_villan
LOL WE CALL THE SHOTS AND IF WE SAY HE AIN'T GOING HE AIN'T GOING I TOLD YA MAN DO U REALLY THINK HE WOULD WHANNA PLAY FOR U LOT ERMMM DOD'T THINK SO LOL
geordie boys
no geordie boys YOU don't call the shots, the people who "call the shots" are as samtozer stated earlier, and I quote " NEWCASTLE ARE A BUNCH OF WAN*ERS GLEN ROEDER IS A TO**ER AND THE CHAIRMAN IS A FAT PIECE OF SH*T" I think that about covers it, and no matter how many times you write LOL we all know that inside you are crying because you were not born a villan, it's not too late for you, leave the dark side and join us, unlike some fans we are tolerant of those less fortunate than ourselves, come on you know you want to, it's either now or when you go down to the chumpianship
steff_the_villan
Still a few hours left. Poor lad must be gutted. I mean, Fat Freddy's Pie Shop or Randy's Glittering Claret & Blue Emporium ? No contest really, is there ?
pongogidman
U NU FANS MAKE ME LAUGH - U R THE MOST PRETENTIOUS FANS IN THE WORLD - WOT HAVE YOU WON IN THE LAST 30 YEARS - F*** ALL THAT'S WOT - U THINK YOU ARE A BIG CLUB, WELL HAVING THE GROUND AND BEING ABLE TO FILL IT IS ONLY PART OF IT - IF THERE ARE NO TROPHIES TO SHOW AT THE END OF THE DAY, WELL HOW CAN U BIG A BIG CLUB???? AT LEAST BORO HAVE WON SOMETHING IN THIS TIME!!! - BIG CLUB - MY A***!!!!!
VillaBob
Ignorant****s you Villans aren't you. Fat Freddie isn't great but he's always coughed up when it matters and I think you'll find there was a much bigger clown running some *****ty club in Birmingham, does the name Ellis mean anything to you or are you still blocking out all those painful memories, he's barely been gone 5 minutes and you act like you've got the greatest set up in the country. Now, off you go and cry yourselves to sleep again
bigjulio2
Not too gutted about Milner but its a shame for him losing to his old club 2-0.
Villa1982
I don't think you've let go, Villa was never his old club, that was Leeds. It's called a loan deal because you don't actually own the player. Of course your not gutted, that's why you're posting about it!
bigjulio2
Do you think that the Geordies are still jealous cos we have MON and they don't - Roeder! - I can hear the laughs from the EastEnders from Brum - ha ha ha - Trophy- Less No Marks!!!
VillaBob
How long will he stay? Two years tops before he's off to ManUre.
bigjulio2
And besides, why would we be jealous. We rejected him, he didn't get the job
bigjulio2
Big Julio - I bet that this makes you feel REAL good!!!!
VillaBob
VillaBob no, just stating the facts:)
bigjulio2
big julio geordio sounds like a right c**k sucker
samtozer
BigJulio - Answer this HONESTLY and remove your bravado for a minute - Who would you have wanted Roeder or MON?
VillaBob
What have Newcastle ever won? They sign some thirty year old from Inter Milan and pretend he was their number 1 target (what happened to Dirk Kuit then?). I feel sorry for James in this one, he obviusly wants to play for us. Freddy Shepherd is a kn*bder, his comments around Michael Owen exemplified this.
tarzan
agreed samtozer nu are 10 places behind us in the league, and the nu fans are all on our site because they would just rather be us, and lets face it, who wouldn't, so in that vein lets just try and understand how devastating it must be to talk trash so much and then have your arses kicked by one of the smallest squads out there, that are supposed to be in turmoil due to new management and chairman, unchanged apart from loosing even more players, and to top it off one of their "star players" who played well for us last season comes on the pitch and plays like he wants to join us, it must be hard, so please be gentle with them,
steff_the_villan
Honestly why would anyone want Roeder as their manager, he's not won anything and he's an arrogant**** but so far he's done better than Sourness ever did so we'll give him a go and frankly if Keegan, Gullit, Dalgleish & Robson can't do it then he might as well get a fair crack at it. steff_the_villan what kind of knowledgable football fan quotes the league after just 2 games which is what NUFC have played, you know we had to delay some games because we're in Europe!!! OK if you want to quote the league look at it this way Villa have played 50% more games than Newcastle have this season so it's only natural that you're above us. Kuyt's record isn't as good as Kezman's was in the Dutch league and look what's happened to him, off to Turkey to see your old friend Alpay! And he's an ugly *****er.
bigjulio2
I think what happened was that after the game, Roeder said "he wasn't happy with certain palyers, and it was up to him to deal with it". Milner had a stinker against us and Roder obviously gave him what for. I can only imagine what James's reaction to this was, but he probably told him to go and f*** himself, after all its a team game - the result of this is, is what we've seen today. Newcastle a laughing stock. Roeder is OK, but the job is too big for him - and probably most managers. The transfer system is a cartell now, Chelski part own those Argies, there's no way West Ham will sell them to Man U now.
tarzan
Big Julio - At least u r being honest about Roeder - Fair Play 2 u for that! - Don't get carried away though - U still support the most pretentious team in the land though where most of the toon army still haven't seen ur captain raise a major trophy up in the air - Sorry mate - Like you said earlier "just stating the facts"!
VillaBob
:) What more pretentious than ManUre or Chelsea? I find that hard to believe. You should get a good look at Tevez and Mascherano when they give you a good kicking on their debuts. 10th Sept
bigjulio2
bigjulio2 after the rubbish that has been spouted on this site by loud mouthed geordie ****wits (and yes all clubs have their own gang of them) I feel entitled to pull a few chains even after just 2 matches, like the honesty regarding Roeder, and I know I speak for a few when I say how relieved I was to hear Martins problem was not serious, was always a fan of the man Shearer (even though he wasn't too keen on the Villa) and have a few friends from the toon, and to quote you "Villa have played 50% more games than Newcastle have this season so it's only natural that you're above us" if this were last season under DOL and Ellis it wouldn't have mattered we would still have been behind you. so chill geezer, just having some good fortune for a change and enjoying every minute of it, even if it is just a few games in.
steff_the_villan
tevez and co wont get near us on their debut what the **** r u on julio they wont take to the pace very nicely especially when McCann puts his fu**ing boot in them
samtozer
and as for west ham, just step up, the next spanking is for you, UP THE VILLA
steff_the_villan
agree steff the villan they wont gel in time, anyway they might get injured on international duty ha ha
samtozer
Can't say I'm all that worried.
myleftfoot
you know how long it takes these south americans to get settled we should know!!
samtozer
Tino Asprilla's the only south american forward I can think of who's adaped well. Gilberto and Heinze in other positions maybe, the whole WHU team will be lifted though, I think your party will end there.
bigjulio2
I dont think so we are also on a high even though we hav'nt got the quality of those two we will wear them down and kick them all over the park. at least were having a party if we cant get a result what chance have you got with your sick notes!!
samtozer
I hear Walter Pandiani and Matty Upson are available ;-)
tarzan
:)We may have to turn to them when the Bridge deal doesn't come off because Cole's transfer to chelsea falls through and Rossi will probably get injured before he even pulls on the shirt. Either way we'll still finish above you this season
bigjulio2
Antione Sibierski has signed for the toon from Man City. Hopefully this will mean the Milner deal is back on?
MON the Man
hopefully! c'mon james lets come home and u can work your magic 4 a club that respect you and not ppl who clearly do not! hmmmm who would i like 2 play 4,roeder or o'neill? really hard question that one and as 4 newcastle finishing above us this year,gis a bita mhat u r smoking! lol
Belfast Villain
Who are Villa playing in Europe this season?
bigjulio2
You would think that AVFC would update their web site a little more often. Keep the supporters informed and all that. As for bigjuly2 anyone can win the intertoto cup but not evryone is a Euro Champion so go away u little girl
myleftfoot
I think the reason we're arguing with NU is our frustration, with half hour to go that we've done nothing in the transfer market. Sunderland have signed 6! Now I know what's required is quality but we've got one of the smallest squads and no additions. No one appears to want to say they're diappointed but frankly, I am.
Gazvilla
2 right gaz!
Belfast Villain
Raised expectations now you see. We thought we would do something now. Seen some of our fans ragging the Spurs and Newcastle fans on other sites and feel a little deflated. On the bright side MON will get the best out of us and we aren't as bad as we finished last season. We have got a decent team. Just need some luck with injuries and suspensions until January.
Gazvilla
still sucks tho - when you think we have lost 3 and gained 1 player - so we are in a poorer position than last year - numbers wise
myleftfoot
this seems wierd. must mess with milners head a bit! says a lot about nufc's lack of person management, as well as wasting other clubs time. 1 signing doesn't make a lot of sense, thought MON may have had back-ups? sure there was not a lot of time, which once more reiterates nufc wasting villa's time! mugs....
leftfoot
A bit worried we have only signed 1 player with the size of the squad. Just hope he can splash the cash in January and until then were lucky with injuries and suspensions. What's eating me is though - how the f*** have West Ham been able to sign those 2 Argies?
MON the Man
I'm very disappointed as well. But on the plus side, we have players to come back - Baros if his head is right could be like a new signing. January is a hard time to get people in so I think more realistically next summer is when he can get to add more quality.
baros10
Very starnge. Allowing him to go and then bringing him back. Milner wouldn't be very happy either I wouldn't of thought.
Tierney
Agreed baros10 Baros could be like a new signing, and then there is laurson, but thats not all, MON is in charge and our boys look like a completely new team, so do not judge us on last season, last season was a disillusioned team working under a disillusioned manager, no hope, no heart, no bo**ocks, what MON has done is breath fire into the hearts of our boys, they believe again, and you can not put a price on that. so I look forward with confidence to our season and watching our NEW VILLA TEAM. So come on chaps our heads have been down long enough, Heads up or you'll miss the magic. UP THE VILLA
steff_the_villan
i think were all disapointed but new owners and MoN are the best signings for 20 summers so lets be patient, consolidate this season and look forward to the future.
tylervilla
Newcastle have shown just how well they treat there players by doing this. i give you lot credit for 1 thing & that is you dont mind paying for your players but as far as your manager is concerned how the hell do you think your going to do well with Roeder? he got west ham relegated ffs with de canio in the team Roeder FTW lmao
TuBBz

U VILA FANS R SO BORIN
geordie boys
is the newcastle site so boring that you have to leave messages on the mighty claret and blue. I remember when newcastle used to have good strikers. Now they have shola ama and no thats it.
tylervilla
Report just appeared on the BBC about MO'N saying how disappointed he was with Newcastle.
Tierney
Last season, he shone in a poor team. This season, he would add depth but that's all. He didn't impress at all last Sunday.
Reddi!
Newcastle were obviously using the sale of Milner to finance the Viduka deal, when that deal went tits up they didn't need to sell so pulled the plug. They might sing a diiferent Toon (geddit?) in January. It does stick in the craw about how Milner is THEIR player to sell or not when we were sandbagged over the Mrs Solano fiasco.
Willie Willie Anders
I can see why you guys are so unhappy after he fitted in so well last season.
