Ok, so the James Milner move to Manchester City looks set to happen any day now.
Having read the quotes from Martin O'Neill and the 'anger' from Mike Field, directed more Villa/MON's way than the players way, see: Bye Bye Milner I wondered what you thought?
The latest poll by chance....!.... asks the very same.
I'm split. I partly blame Milner for showing no loyalty, it was Villa that got him in the England side for the WC and Villa who showed faith to pay a high fee from Newcastle to get him. On the flipside, this will be a massive pay day for the lad and it is a career for him, a short one at that. + The style of play and tactics at Villa.... hmmmm. Would still like to have seen some loyalty but then I don't suppose that really exists in football anymore does it, apart from amongst the fans.
I'd love to hate him for it, I won't like him for it because a slight against Villa is a slight against us really... but we are the fans, we don't move. They are the staff and they do. I would have hoped for more than two years from the lad though and did think he was a more stable and loyal character but hey, money can turn even the most loyal of heads I guess?
As Manchester City fan Buzz Lightyear said in our article comments: 'If you do get Ireland for Milner, then the deal for you is a good one, Milner not worth what City are paying and Ireland is a class player, you are in a no lose situation.'
I tend to agree, so maybe Milner has done us a favour? For one Villa have again shown that we won't be bullied when it comes to our assets, they'll only go at the right price, + the money will help bring in yet more players (bets are on for Robbie Keane and Aiden McGeady the latter I know nowt about I must admit) + we'll have Ireland who is arguably a better player, albeit maybe not as versatile, than MiŁner.
So, what say you?
