    For a winger who can't run past a player or cross?

    Villa seem to be doing a sunderland and paying way over the odds for players,if you can get £9M for him I'd take it cos he aint worth anywhere near that.

    I thought Milner was a fans' fave on Tyneside?

    Yes we can, Guttierez, Duff and N'Zog are all wingers who can play both flanks. Geremi, Barton, Beye, Martins will all be more productive than Milner out on the right as well IMO.

    He's like marmite, some love him (because he is honest, grafts and pulls off the occasional cross/goal) and some hate him (because he is slow, can't cross and is crap).

    I'm clearly in the latter group

    You're on good from this morning. I was hoping he'd prove the likes of yourself wrong pre-season. He didn't. If he stayes I'll admit that he's got to be much more consistant, and make more of a differance than as of late.

    I would take £9m for him like a shot.

    No one can question his work rate and the graft he puts in, but the quality of is just not there. He can barely lift the ball off the deck and is embarrassing at times.

    Just heard on SSN that Milner has handed in a transfer request.

    That's on the official site, the club says he's handed in a transfer request but they haven't had an offer that meets their valuation, way to go Mike, f**king cock ! :slap:

    :dance:

    £9m from Villa please!!!!

    The kid is utter gash, a tryer granted but he hardly scores, can't cross to save his life and can't take on a defender with even the slightest of pace.

    Ship him out and get a big money offer in for SWP

    We can't flog Milner until We get someone better in, Am not convinced Ashley wants to splash the cash, if he goes and We don't get any f**ker in the team will be all the worse for it, regardless of how little you think of him.
    :no:

    Martin O'Niell wants to get his mits on £18m for Barry and will give only half of that for Milner. Milner is seen as the perfect, and much cheaper replacement for Barry.
    If we can get an appropriate replacement before the transfer window slams shut, then fine. But handing in a transfer request a few days before the window closes is hardly helping us.

    I think Milner is quality. Big loss for Newcastle.

    Watching you play, even when you guys were playing shite over the past few seasons, I always pick Milner as your most dangerous looking player in most games.

    I can't believe we will sell if we don't bring anybody in.

    With the signings of Jonas and Collocini, Ashley has shown he is willing to spend in the right areas and if we are due a decent fee for Milner then there is no evidence to suggest he will withhold this cash on purchasing a replacement.

    Ashley has spent £100m in clearing the debts the scrapman kindly left us with and thus far there are not too many clubs that have spent more than us in this window. Give the bloke a break ffs.

    The club, for the first time since Surgeon Hall is being run effectively, arguably even better. Ashley clearly doesn't have the cash to compete with the top 4, hence him looking for fellow investors, but in the meantime we are being effectively ran and there is some stability. You only need to look at the likes of West Ham and Man City to see how billionaire investors can go. Imagine the state we would be in if the fat controller was still here? With all that debt to service? Ashley has put his own money in, something not even the Hall's or Shepherd's can claim to have done as they geared the club against future earnings.

    As for Milner, what has he done to justify being in the first team, let alone justify the kind of figure being bandied about for him. Its young English player syndrome, look at the mackems, about to pay £8m for the liability that is Anton Ferdinand.
