What a player, what a career and what dedication, looked after himself being teetotal and still bossing it at 36 and picking up big prizes, hope he gets a new contract, one of our great leaders in the dressing room.

Legend? Is that too strong? Possibly. I fucking love him so much. I trust him so much. His body has and will let certain games get away from him but shit...what a football player. What a guy. Listen to any interview with the playing squad and they all say Milly goes hardest. A character that transcends his limitations imo.

What a fucking guy he is. He's a natural leader, and he's the model professional.

I'd have him here for many years if he wants to. Hell, I hope he retires wearing the red. He's a fucking hero of ours.

He's the only taker where I know he 100% slots

Salah, Mane, Trent are all better players. But if I had a gun to my head, I'd pick Milner to take my pen.

there should be an award for "toughest best old bastard"    The T-Bob

"James Milner has won the Writer's T-Bob award for the 5th year running tonight and it looks like hes stolen the mike, folks, omg hes gonna dance...."

Put a reducer on James 2 minutes into his shift and then just bossed it all the way to the point where he left Mendy shaking his head and talking to himself after leading off the Pens with a top corner howitzer.


Damn that Mane's good!

Milner’s won Premier Leagues, FA Cups, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, League Cups and a Community Shield over the course of his career, that’s everything but the Europa League. He’s a Legend for certain. I hope he gets another years contract. You want leaders in a dressing room, he is one, he knows his role, his playing time will be limited, but his experience and what he can still do is worth the years contract.

Model/perfect guy, pro, player... and talent... on and on.
Square jawed tough motherfucker.

As much as he's done for Liverpool, I will always think - scarred memory - of him coming on for Man City in that big game April 2014 and wearing LFC the fuck out for like first 20 mins of second half. Thankfully, we won (Victor Moses "pass" to Hendo notwithstanding)

surely the 2nd best free transfer

behind a certain joe cole surely.

hope he is still around to defend his pre season lactate test trophy

think his impact off the pitch is as huge as his impact on it. Model pro 100%. Imagine a luiz diaz coming in and seeing a 37 year old taking the piss during pre season fitness tests. something the new signings and young players surely look forward to achieve.

When he came on, turned to a mate and said that he's going to clatter someone and announce himself to the final. Bang - James is wondering what day it is.

Played brilliantly, and deserved an assist with that cross. So cool with his penalty (ice-cold Ribena running through his veins) and expected nothing different. What a treasure and what a man.

It’s like Klopp said to him to just hit things really hard.

Players or the ball he just smashed them as hard as he could.

Milner never lets you down. He knows the game too well and can see what is required. We often talk about his perpetual motion and it's true that he covers an immense amount of ground. But there's a wonderful economy to his movement as well. There's no unnecessary bustling around just for the sake of it.

Great display tonight I thought. Great in the centre in the first half and did a job in the second.

Would imagine he does one last year with us next year, but is there a slim possibility he bows out for us at the weekend? A modern great for us either way.
