James Milner has spoken to AVTV about being part of the England set up: 'I think the more and more you get involved and the longer you're there, the more training sessions and the more you are about the place in the England set up, you obviously feel more part of it. It is pleasing to get to through that new stage. I'm still the newbie, I suppose, but it is more how you feel yourself and if you're more confident and happy around the place then that helps.'

Milner also says there are a number of Villa players who could make the World Cup: 'There are a number of players in contention for the World Cup at Aston Villa. It would be great for Aston Villa if a few players could go because it'd mean we've had a good season.' Full quotes and FREE video: www.avfc.co.uk

Vital England: Playing against Brazil is most people's 'boyhood dream', and James Milner - as he told BBC WM - hopes to do exactly that this weekend when England meet Brazilian's in Qatar: 'when you're growing up and you're pretending to play for your country, Brazil's probably the team you play against. 'It's an important game, it's a warm-up game, and hopefully if we play them again it'll be in the World Cup final.' Full article: www.england.vitalfootball.co.uk

Chances are I'll have some peas with my fish and chips... heaven.

Interesting couple of articles in the Express & Star on John Carew today. The first has quotes from centre-back Carlos Cuellar who told the E&S that JC is 'every defender’s worst nightmare'. Very true according to Chief Sports Writer Martin Swain but only when the player can be bothered. John Carew - Nightmare In More Ways Than One?!?

Thought for the day: If at first you don't succeed, sky diving is not for you.
