Biggest Day In James Milner's Life

Biggest Day In James Milner's Life

Wednesday 18 August 2010 is the day James Milner discarded his claret shirt in favour of MCFC's Sky Blue - in essence, today becomes the biggest day of his life.

As MCFC confirmed the deal was completed today, City boss Roberto Mancini said:

"I am very happy to have James with us, everybody knows we have admired him for some time...he is an excellent midfielder, who can play in a number of positions. This is important for the team, and I am looking forward to seeing him play for us. We have a very strong squad, and this signing is a very important one for us.

"James is already a very good player, who has proved he can play at the very top level. But he is also young and a good character, I think he can also improve and be a great player for Manchester City for a long time."

yeah right...the biggest pay day in his life!!...PFA young player of the year award was probably his biggest sporting achievement . Brought about by his development at Villa. Enough said.

I think you mean today is the the day he kisses goodbye to his football career. Next year you will discard him for a better model like you did with players who had the "biggest day of their life" last year.

"Brought about by his development at Villa. Enough said." Typical bitter bile. Bobby Robson and Leeds Academy had far more to do with Milner's development!!

Ahh yet again the bitter and ragingly jealous rival fans are here to stomp on every bit of positive news our club has and lambast us and all of our players evil child-killing mercenaries. You lot remind me of hardline extremist religious mobs, always having to target someone with your hateful bile. Oh well, it'll be Blackburn's turn soon - strengthen the gates, Vital Blackburn, jealousy approaches!

Craig - this is a City site, if this doesn't help why read it? And just to be a bit pedantic, all the signings( bar Sylvinho) this time last year are still at the club.

You've just got yourself a good lad in Milner, obviously gutted he went for the money, but any player would find it hard to refuse the sums your club can pay. One question, do you lot find it acceptable to be buying up top Premiership players and then refuse to sell them to competitors and push them down a league so you don't have to face them? In reality your club could cherry pick all of the best players in the Prem and off load them on loan to a lower league, I must admit I find that underhand and damaging to the league. This is not a pop at you lot, I know you're not to blame, but a genuine question, do you think that is acceptable?
