Milner Not Singing Villa Toon

Milner Not Singing Villa Toon

James Milner has all but ruled out a move back to Villa Park where he spent last season on loan.

Martin O'Neill tried to sign him before the summer deadline closed and Milner was actually at Villa Park when Freddy Shepherd, the Newcastle chairman, pulled the plug on the move.

Milner told the Telegraph: 'There are constant rumours about Aston Villa, but I think I'll still be here in January, I certainly hope so. When you're at a club like Newcastle you are going to get these sorts of rumours the whole time, but it doesn't affect me. I'm going to concentrate on Newcastle, playing my football and getting on with the job of getting us back up the Premiership table.'

'It's no secret that I'm enjoying myself here this season. You enjoy your football more when you're playing well and you play well when you're getting a regular run in the side. I'm getting that here. The manager's got tough decisions to make in midfield because we have a lot of quality in that area. You've got to play well to stay in the team, but I'm enjoying my football and I'm showing my best form. Hopefully I can continue to keep improving here.'

No worries, I'd rather Chelsea's Shaun Wright Phillips anyway!

Took the words right out of my mouth Fear. Milner is no great loss if we get SWP instead.

....but if we dont get SWP he would be just what we need. Plus he is flexible for both flanks and is still very young. I hope MON works his majic on this one.

Milner has just proved he is an idiot and as for SWP Its likely he will go to West Ham not Villa

'its no secret that i'm enjoying myself this season' ???? what, your playing for an under-performing team who struggle to score and are in the bottom 3?? i think the cold weather is getting to him !! bring on SWP instead, he's a good player, but shaun's a different level

Why the hell has Milner just proved he's an idiot? Get real. Any player with more than 2 brain cells will say he is happy at his current club if asked. Why would he make life difficult for himself? Doesn't mean its true. I still think he'd sign for us if we had an offer accepted.

No I cant see SWP moving to B6 either, although if we could land him he'd certainly add the flair and excitement which we are so sadly lacking right now. As for James Milner, you never know. He's making the right noises to please the geordie element. If he remains at St James Park then good luck to him. We move on, so does he.

calm down dear it was only a statement I was just saying that he must be an idiot not to want to join Villa. I know there might be a bit of false in what he said but I was just having fun as a Villa fan

He's a good player and can get better but deep down, if he really wants to stay there, then let him be - if most of us had been treated like Newcastle treated him (and villa) then I don't think too many could forgive and forget. Always been a doubt in my mind that he'll always lack goals though and for someone who gets into the positions he does then that could cost.
