Milner Is A God

Milner Is A God

Ladies and Gentleman of Vital Villa, raise your hands in appreciation for the newest PFA Young Player of the Year...I give you James 'Milly/the Millyman/the Millymeister' Milner.

Quite why the PFA waited until most people are in bed before announcing what we all knew, Milly is a God, I don't know - failing that it's because I wasn't paying attention.

Either way our midfield dynamo has a second reason to celebrate tonight, not only did he bag the winning goal against Blues earlier today, he has now officially followed Ashley Young and secured the PFA Young Player of the Year tag which means our little Referee at Wembley hated club keeps the title for a second year running.

Ignoring the politicised nature of these awards, for a change it was genuinely a tight competition. Any of those in the final running could have won, Joe Hart, a keeper I doubt any fan wouldn't welcome a B6. Fabregas, Rooney, their talent needs no comment afterall.

But Milly won through, quite rightly. So we should all bow our heads and run into a brick wall to pay homage to the 'lad' who seems to have been around for as long as Rooney and cynically does help redefine the word 'young'.

A reason for an extra pint (us you understand, Milly is far too professional to imbibe alcohol) is he also made the PFA Team of the Year, and joins (much to Mark Hughes' annoyance) Richard Dunne in the coveted 11.

Rooney obviously took Metatarsal of the Year, replacing Michael Owen who was sadly too injured to enter. But for clarity I should also add he also took Player of the Year, Rooney, not Owen obviously.

But back to Milner.

A thoroughly deserved award, not only for his efforts this year in the claret and blue but also for his efforts when called upon by England.

Fabio Capello was right for more than one reason when he said Milly was 'our future, my future'.

Too many premaddona players thesedays, the bank account seems to be all that matters and outside of football shagging, gambling, drinking, clubbing is all important - dare I say it appears more important than the football.

In the days of celebrity footballers James doesn't actually stand out...in the papers, he needs no super injunction - he needs no gossip. He focuses on what is right and what is important...his career while he has it - he can enjoy life fully after that.

If all players were that sensible, maybe more fans wouldn't have an issue with the money in the game.

That said, if they all did that Milner possibly wouldn't be as well respected or as loved as he is. I'm not sure what I'd prefer, suffice to say this is a well deserved award and for youngsters looking out for a proper role model, you should look no further than James.

You are applauded Sir.

Nice to see us get 2 in the team again, especially considering Tottenham, Man City and Liverpool didn't get anyone in the team......that said, I reckon if Lennon was fit all season, things would have been different.

Even when he was on loan with us 3/4 years ago, i thought what a quality player. Someone said it spot on.... He is our Gerrard/Lampard. May his metatarsal be protected by the shining shield of the footballing Gods, without him i think we would be truly lost
