And so the tapping up starts… (continues?)
Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given has been talking about another club’s player, in this instance our very own James Milner who he says he would love to see at Man City.
He said on Sky Sports News
‘He has had a great season at Aston Villa. He played some fantastic football when I was at Newcastle with him as well. He’s a quality all round player. He has got bags of ability, a great left foot and right foot, so he’s a very good talent. If he comes to the club great, if he doesn’t he has had a great time under Martin O’Neill at Aston Villa.’
Now usually I would climb so high onto my high horse I’d be refused insurance due to the danger… however I can’t this time because Richard Dunne said the same about his former team mate Stephen Ireland last week.
Damn you Dunney, I could have had all sorts of fun ranting and raving about City and their lack of common decency….!
Remains to be seen whether Manchester City do return with an improved bid. The bid in my opinion would have to include Ireland, if it did, I am not sure we’d be much weaker, I would still rather see James stay mind you, but somehow, I don’t think that is going to happen.
Seems from our latest poll, a fair few agree that Milner has had his head turned and is off… blimey I’m typing in tune with the Rolling Stones Midnight Rambler… I’ve never typed so funkily in my life… I digress.

No, not really, it asks Milner aside, who would you most HATE to see leave Villa this summer.
