Vital Villan: James Milner has revealed today that the settled nature of B6 these days has helped him improve as a player. Speaking on the official site, Milly loves the fact he is now at a harmonious club with no manager merry-go-round or takeover talks looming over playing matters, and contradicts many fans views that players don't actually get embroiled in the off pitch antics of their employers. 'Has the move helped me to progress? Massively. It's not easy when there's always talk of your manager getting sacked and turmoil at the club and off the field problems. It doesn't help you get on with your football so obviously it was a good move for me.' Full article: Villa Stability Key To Growth
