Big John On Little Milly

Big John On Little Milly

John Carew has said that Milner should be on the plane for the World Cup after being our most consistent performer this season.

Speaking to SSN after a fantastic display in yesterday's match against Bolton, Carew has called on Capello to take the wee man with him to South Africa, if for nothing else but his versatility.

'James should be on the plane for the World Cup - absolutely. He has been our most consistent player for a while now and he almost never has a bad game.'

Carew goes on to say that Milly can play on either flank, as a striker or even a full back(!) and that he thinks England are crying out for that type of flexibility on the pitch, especially from a two footed player.

'You need a player who can come in and do the job for you, whether it's on the left or the right without lowering the level of the team, and James fits that bill.'

Glowing praise again for Milner. One thing you can say is even when he's having a bad day his engine sees him through and on that score he never lets you down.

I agree, think Milner, short of injury or a drop in form, is a cert for the World Cup.
