Milner Would Be Missed, But Not Irreplaceable

Carlos Cuellar would like nothing more than to see James Milner remain at B6, but if he does leave Cuellar has no fear for the future as no player is irreplaceable in his mind.

With the much rumoured move to Manchester City still no nearer an official end many fans are left wondering what our first 11 may look like come Wet Spam, however it appears the players - at least in the press, see Friddy P's kit launch comments - do not share the frustrations of the fans.

Speaking to Sky Sports News Cuellar said he would be delighted if Milly stayed, but no player is irreplaceable and Villa remain as more than a one man team.

'We have been training exactly the same because we are a team, we don't depend on one player.'

Cuellar adds that James is obviously top class and one of the best in the league, but if he does go:

'We will replace him with another good player.'

I wonder how many fans will agree?

He's more than replaceable. Stephen Ireland. Cash. We can't lose. I think one of Milners biggest assets is his grafting and work-rate. But don't we have enough of that type of thing? I love to see a trouble-making sulk that can pass the ball and give us some class at VP.

Well after losing Barry & as/more importantly Laursen, we still finished 6th & had 2 wembley appearances...I think we were in a much worse situation after losing these 2 players the previous season than what we are now...In fact I am not worried & do not think we have a problem...If Milly goes we will do ever so well out of it & if he does'nt he will continue to give his all (ala barry) & I still think we will make a signing or 2, contrary to the rumours the pot is empty...It may well be, but it is still only speculation & we wont really know till the window shuts...I expect the Fonz to be more involved & albrighton & maybe a couple others, but mostly in a squad role, used sparingly & I still have not seen anyone else do much as yet...We will compete well as always & will be better off for last years exploits!!!!

I still like to see Ireland and Milner in a 5 man midfield with albrighton, young and reo coker...with agbonlohor/fonz up front and keane off the bench...just think that would be a dream team..
