O'Neill eyes £8m Milner

Recommended Posts

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is planning an £8million summer swoop for Newcastle star James Milner.

 

Winger Milner, 22, has threeyears left on his contract at St James' Park after signing a new deal last summer.

 

But O'Neill believes he can lure the England Under-21 star away - especially if struggling Newcastle go down.

 

Milner spent a successful year on loan at Villa in 2005/2006.

£8m? I'd take it in a heart beat. I quite like Milner but I don't think he'll ever be anything special. Certainly not as a wide man anyway.

I can see KK converting him into a Rob Lee-esque centre mid.

I think he's got potential to play in the middle like. He's got the engine for it, without a doubt.

Hes a far better passer and at shooting from range than butt or barton have shown us this season too

Quoted for truth. Except I admit the ridiculous amount of praise he gets has turned me against him.

Not that I do believe a iota of these made up rumours, but even to come up with the idea that Milner might be worth 8m is simply ridiculous.

Yep...he's no Boumsong!

I do agree but looking at what some others have gone for isn't all that "crazy". I would have Milner long before players like Nugent (£6m), Chopra (£5m), Richardson* (£5.5m)....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Some will probably disagree but I think Richardson is vastly overrated.

Slow and no end product. In the centre we may get something out of him but I can't see Keegan moving him any time soon.

 

Sell, sell, sell!

It's a problem of the English market in general and probably part of the reason for the national team still struggling. They had Markus Babbel (who used to play for Liverpool) as a co-commentator for the Inter-Liverpool match here and he made some critical but interesting remarks about how all the money is good and bad for English football at the same time.

 

It's ridiculous just for example that for 8m on the continent you did get the likes of Toni or Klose last summer.

There are many players we should be getting rid of before Milner.

 

we should be getting rid of the lot of them.

 

How constructive, thanks.

 

why do you think we are doing so bad? its because the players arent good enough. the only players i would keep are beye and owen.

if you give him the service he will score you goals. if we get any half decent midfielders that actually have any creativity he will be worth keeping. However i understand what you are saying and agree with you and if we were to keep the same shite we have id rather have someone like defoe playing upfront for us instead of him
