'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pride Of Milner

James Milner has spoken today of his tremendous pride at being selected for Fabio Capello's squad for the Spain game.

Milner as we all know was set for the U-21's but following his sterling performance against Blackburn he was quickly promoted to the full side, and rightly so.

Speaking on the official site Milly said:

'To represent your country at any level is fantastic but to be called up to the full squad is an absolute honour and a real proud moment in my career.

'I am thrilled and I can't wait to link up with the other lads and work hard and try to do well in training.

'Villa have six players in the national squad, which is a huge achievement too. Credit has to go to the manager Martin O'Neill for that.

'It'll be great to be part of the set-up and to have so many lads from Villa there too will make it even better.'

It'll be a home away from home with Gabby, Barry, Ash, Heskey and Luke with him aswell.

Pretty soon England will have to play in claret and blue when you consider the other players that could have concievably been called up after performances of late.

Newcastle fan here - the lad looks fantastic. Just needed to put him in a side which works as hard as he does.
BaldEagle
stunning times to be a Villan. Thanks BaldEagle, must admit he is doing fabulously, he is tireless, love him to bits!
The Fear
I just wish we'd kept him first time around. He always looked at home at Villa, and the Coaches could have started working with him as soon as MON joined. Better late than never. James - you are a Villan!
HeathfieldRoad1874
He was on his way down to sign if you remember heathfieldroad but Freddy Shepherd called him back up again, MON had to tell him he wasn't able to sign him!
The Fear
It's great, while everyone was concentrating on Ash, Jamo has come up on the rails and doubled teams headaches. I think he hA been superb over the last 4 or 5 games and is one of the main reasons we have remained unbeaten...UTV
