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

Young Player Of The Year - James Milner

James 'Milly' Milner has been nominated by the PFA as one of the...erm...nominees for the Young Player of the Year Award.

As fans will know Ash won out last year, so it would be nice to keep the title at the club, but the nomination itself is hardly a surprise given Milly's form and effort - let alone his breakthrough into the England squad that had Capello declaring him 'my future' earlier in the season.

I know some will think it strange that a player who has been around since 16 is considered young, but hey if Rooney and Fabregas can qualify I don't see why we can't think of Milly as baby aswell.

The other nomination is from the other side of the City - Joe Hart - but I'm not sure how many noses will be celebrating given the nasty bankers have taken them over today and they are potentially looking for new owners again...be far funnier if they just wound them up and sold the ground to be fair.

Any, Gordon Taylor said:

'We (the Royal 'we') at the PFA have followed James' career with great interest ever since he approached us for advice as a teenager, and he has been a key member of the Player Management Agency ever since.'

Taylor continues to state they are very proud of the progress that he has made over the last few years and described his growth as a professional this season by saying Milly has 'positively blossomed' in the centre midfield role.

Taylor finishes by congratulating our young Duracell Bunny on making the step up to the full England side. You get the distinct impression Mr Taylor does not expect him to disappear from that squad any time soon.

Congratulations Milly, it's thoroughly deserved and if there is any justice you're odds on for it!
