Love milner as a person, by all mean. Love milner as a player? Kuyt work harder score in big games, 12-15 goal a season and he got pillored everyday here.
Kuyt was also seen by many as the weak link in the team. And as we know, we need scapegoats to lambast on here, warranted or not.
Milner has done well enough for me this season considering the circumstances... Yes we need a LB, but that's not happening at least until the summer so Milner is it and for the most part he has done what has been asked of him and done it good enough for the most part
Can't believe how the Citeh lot jeered him today.
I thought they were booing ironically to start with.
When it was still happening on 60' ...
Magnificent penalty to shut them up.
His penalty was brilliant! So cool.
Brilliant penalty taker, unfortunately not a brilliant left back. Or CM, or anything.
How many times did they get down our left. This can't continue next season. If we Roberto Carlos in the opposition half you could allow it, but he isn't.
City Boo at just about everything, from Champions League theme to model pro ex player who left to get himself regular 1st team football.
You know what I boo at?...
Their pathetic TalkSport adverts begging for people to fill their soulless excuse of a football stadium.
That is comedy gold right there!
He's done about as well as you can ask of a 30 year old midfielder in the position, and is better than Moreno.
But he can't be our first choice LB next season.
I was too busy celebrating to see but I hope he actually did celebrate his goal and didn't offer that dufus nation any sort of respect.
And then for some strange reason in the 2nd half, Raheem just wasn't really on that right side anymore and seemed more central and at times on the other side of the pitch. I found that very strange as they didn't seem patient enough to stay with it. It was really awful...but Milner is a survivor, you have to give him that. Reminds me of that boxer who will take a beating for 15 rounds till you are wondering how they are still alive, never mind how they are still boxing. But then he stays with it till he can get a swing of his own later in the game. Gotta be one of the most mentally strong players around.
That PK though....oh, so sweet! Keeper could have guessed right and cheated to the right side a second before the kick and still wouldn't have laid a glove on the ball. Just a brilliant PK under the most high pressure situation!
Thought that's how it played out - am sure he could have stayed to be a squad player, I mean City don't care about paying him big wages to sit on his ass but he wanted to play more regularly at age28/29 whatever it was when he came to us, which I can understand.
Terrific penalty but thought he was massively at fault for their goal. De Bruyne had half the pitch to himself on that side and Milner barely jogged over to try and block the cross.
